I had attended a hotel reception to meet film director / producer Guy Richie. I must confess to not knowing what he looks like but seemed to know him in my dream.
I was trying to get a part in his new film but was up against some tough competition.
Also sat in the hotel were actors Robbie Coltrane and Ray Winstone. Instead of being intimidated by them I set about telling Guy that they were rubbish and it was boring to have the same old faces in films all the time.
Robbie and Ray looked on in disbelief and anger at the very nerve of my presence.
No idea if I got the part as I suddenly found myself in a fruit orchard.
I was being shown around by a make who looked vaguely familiar.
There were blackberries, gooseberries, plums and a yellow fruit that I had never seen before. ( Not bananas, I know what they look like)!
Walking through the orchard we entered a house that had a wood panelled wall. The male used a long pole with a hook attached to open a catch at the top of the wall.
After undoing an elaborate sequence of clips and hooks a TV appeared in the wall from beneath the panelling.
The male then tried to put the TV away but a panel dropped down over the screen that had a picture of Elvis Presley on it.
Equivalent to the egg, in traditional symbolism, for in the centre of the
fruit is the seed which represents the Origin (29). It is a symbol of earthly desires.
To see fruit in your dream, signifies growth, abundance and financial gain. They also symbolize lust and sexuality. In particular, green fruit in your dream, denotes your hastiness and disappointed efforts. You need to work harder and longer in order to achieve your goals. If the fruit is ripe, then it represents fertility and conception. You desire a child or you are ready to have a child.
To see or eat rotting/bitter fruit, represents your missed opportunities for growth and pleasure. Alternatively, it indicates a situation or relationship that ended prematurely. You are expressing some regret.
To dream that you buy or sell fruit, indicates that your efforts are being wasted in a fruitless endeavor.
To dream of seeing fruit ripening among its foliage, usually foretells to the dreamer a prosperous future. Green fruit signifies disappointed efforts or hasty action.
For a young woman to dream of eating green fruit, indicates her degradation and loss of inheritance. Eating fruit is unfavorable usually.
To buy or sell fruit, denotes much business, but not very remunerative.
To see or eat ripe fruit, signifies uncertain fortune and pleasure.
Seeing fruit in your dream means a period of growth, abundance and financial gain. Fruits generally represents lust and sexuality. In particular green fruit in your dream indicates your hastiness and disappointed efforts. You need to work harder and longer in order to achieve your goals. Seeing or eating rotting/bitter fruit, suggests your missed opportunities for growth and pleasure. Dreaming that you buy or sell fruit means much business but little profit in them.
Fruit represents abundance and prosperity. As a result of the seeds that they carry, they may also represent new beginnings. In biblical stories, mythology and literature in general, fruits have enjoyed much symbolic meaning. They may represent sexual desires and the search for wealth and immortality. In order to understand the meaning of the fruit in your dreams, consider your current strivings and psychological space. Also, consider whether the fruit was ripe, rotting or bitter. All of the details will help you to understand whether you have a lustful heart, are at a new frontier, or have missed opportunities for growth and pleasure.
Its significance is diverse, depending upon which of its different characteristics is taken as fundamental. In the Egyptian system of hieroglyphs, the
wall is a determinative sign conveying the idea of ‘rising above the common level’
(19); clearly the predominant sense here is that of its height. A wall enclosing a
space is the ‘wall of lamentations’, symbolic of the sensation of the world as a
‘cavern’—of the doctrine of immanentism or the metaphysical notion of the
impossibility of reaching the outside. It expresses the ideas of impotence, delay,
resistance, or a limiting situation. Now, the wall seen from within as an enclosure
has a secondary implication of protection which, according to its function and the
attitude of the individual, may even be taken as its principal meaning. Psychoanalysts frequently regard it in this light and hence have classified it as a mothersymbol, comparable with the town and the house or home (56). Bayley sums up the two essential features of the wall as follows: Like the house, it is a mystic
symbol representing the feminine element of mankind. This enables us to understand the (otherwise absurd) assertion of the Shulamite in the Song of Songs: ‘I
am a wall’. At the same time, this image has another term of comparison, that of
matter as opposed to spirit (4). It should be noted that the symbolism in the latter
case remains unchanged, since matter corresponds to the passive or feminine
principle, and spirit to the active or masculine.
To see a hotel in your dream, signifies a new state of mind or a shift in personal identity.

All dwelling places generally represent the dreamer's psychological, emotional, or spiritual condition. The dream may reflect a current reality, issue, or dilemma and attempt to bring the dreamer into greater self-awareness. Because a hotel is a transitory dwelling, it suggests a time away from one's responsibilities or routine. As a dream symbol it could reflect a need for rest and reflection. Depending on the details of the dream, specific information can be ascertained. For example, if the hotel is luxurious it suggests prosperity and positive decision-making. However, if the hotel is rundown and inadequate, it may reflect a time of uneasiness and depravation. Whether the hotel in your dream represented a retreat or escapism is for you to determine by examining your current daily reality. Finally, a hotel may refer to a temporary stage in life or be a form of compensation with which the dreamer eases the anxiety and stress experienced during the day.
To dream that you are watching a film, signifies that you are analyzing yourself and your own thoughts from an objective view. Alternatively, it represents old memories and the past. Perhaps there is something that you can learn from in the past.
To dream that you are developing or exposing film, refers to a "developing" relationship or situation. Alternatively, it signifies the completion of a project or task. You are ready to enjoy and reap the benefits of your work. Consider the image that is being developed. If the image on the film does not come out, then it means that you are not ready for the outcome of a situation.
Dreaming that you are watching a film means that you are analyzing yourself and your own thoughts without being emotionally attached.
As a light shining in the darkness, the star is a symbol of the spirit.
Bayley has pointed out, however, that the star very rarely carries a single meaning—it nearly always alludes to multiplicity. In which case it stands for the forces
of the spirit struggling against the forces of darkness. This is a meaning which has
been incorporated into emblematic art all over the world (4). For this reason,
‘identification with the star’ is possible only to the chosen few. Jung recalls the
Mithraic saying: ‘I am a star which goes with thee and shines out of the depths’
(31). Now, individual stars are often seen in graphic symbolism. Their meaning frequently depends upon their shape, the number of points, the manner of their
arrangement, and their colour (if any). The ‘flaming star’ is a symbol of the mystic
Centre—of the force of the universe in expansion (4). The five-pointed star is the
most common. As far back as in the days of Egyptian hieroglyphics it signified
‘rising upwards towards the point of origin’, and formed part of such words as
‘to bring up’, ‘to educate’, ‘the teacher’, etc. (19). The inverted five-pointed star
is a symbol of the infernal as used in black magic (37).
Being nocturnal, their symbolism is associated with that of night; they
are also linked with the idea of multiplicity (or with disintegration) because they
appear in clusters, and with order and destiny because of their disposition and
location (according to Horapollo Niliacus).
Seeing stars in your dream, symbolize high ideals, spirit, fate and luck. It also means your desire for fame and fortune.

Dreaming of passing through leaving and blossoming orchards with your sweetheart, omens a delightful consummation of a long courtship.

Happy homes, with loyal husbands and obedient children, for wives.

According to Éliphas Lévi, this forms part of the inscription on a pentacle that was a frontispiece to the published Grimoire of Honorius, an antipope of the thirteenth century. The letters, used to designate a name of God, were reversed on the pentacle, said to be part of a ritual for the evocation of evil spirits."AL" was also a word of considerable importance to magician Aleister Crowley. It was the name given to the revelation he received in 1904 that became the basis of his new system of thelemic magic, usually called The Book of the Law or Liber AL. Crowley placed great store in numerology. In his system, AL equated to 31, the number which he felt held the key to unlocking the meaning of Liber AL.
