Meaning of Dreams, Dream Dictionary and Dream Interpretation

Of all the rooms in the house, the kitchen is the one that is most associated with motherhood.  As soon as a child is born, it associates its mother with physical nourishment.   Traditionally, the kitchen is the place where the mother makes food for her child.

A dream that takes place in a kitchen often reveals something about how you have been nurtured, both physically and emotionally, and about how well you have developed feelings of security and self-worth.  Is the kitchen in your dream a place of safety and comfort, where you can enjoy the smell of a delicious meal wafting from the oven, or is it a dangerous place with sharp knives that can cut you and hot flames that can burn you?

Cooking something in a kitchen in a dream can represent a desire to care for others or a need to take better care of yourself.

When you cook, you are taking raw materials and transforming them into something that is useful and pleasurable, so cooking in a dream can symbolize taking your talents and skills and using them to create something better for yourself.

Cooking in a dream can represent a transformation in your life.

If you are carrying food out of the kitchen, your dream may be reminding you that although you appear to be moving away from a place of safety, you will always have inner resources to protect you.

In dreams, items in kitchen cabinets and cupboards can represent stored memories.

A refrigerator or freezer in a dream can symbolize a feeling of emotional numbness or detachment.  Items stored in a freezer or refrigerator can represent thoughts, emotions and memories that you have been afraid to acknowledge.

Because a kitchen is associated with motherhood, in a dream a kitchen often represents feminine qualities such as intuition, sensitivity and passiveness.

A dream that you are cleaning your kitchen can represent a desire to loosen maternal bonds.
