Dreams Related To Clock

A wall clock

A wall clock in your dream likely serves to remind you not to take anything for granted. You may be too focused on trivial and worldly things. Or perhaps you are too wrapped up in work and duties that you oftentimes miss out on appreciating the small pleasures of day-to-day existence. There is also a possibility that you would neglect your friends and family in pursuit of your dreams. Perhaps you need to think about your priorities and the essential things, otherwise you could end up alone and miserable. Alternatively, the wall clock could also signal an unexpected event that has the potential to lead you to a completely different path.

Mother showing time on the clock

I am female, my mother in spirit came in my dream and showed me a small blue cover clock showing the time of 3 o'clock. What is the meaning of this please?

The spirit of your mother reveals your need for guidance. You are feeling out of control and having a hard time managing a demanding project as illustrated by the image of a clock. As such, 3 o'clock can have a personal meaning to you and this would reveal the hidden meaning behind it. But in general, 3 o'clock usually carries religious connotations. If this is relevant to you, then your subconscious could be telling you to have faith and believe that challenges are not given to you if you cannot handle them.

Antique clock

Seeing an antique clock in your dream alludes to reflection and personal realizations. You could be entering a period of introspection as a result of various factors which are out of your control. A lot of things may have gone wrong or you could be dealing with disappointments which would prompt you to reevaluate your lot in life. What good deeds and bad decisions have you made so far? What can you change and improve on as you plan a future for yourself and your loved ones? These would be the questions you would ask yourself as you enter this enlightening time.

In addition, if you see yourself scrutinizing an antique clock, your subconscious may be telling you to correct past mistakes. There may have been times when you committed errors and made bad decisions which affected others, including loved ones. At the time, you may have brushed off the consequences of your actions and now a reckoning may occur. Alternatively, you may need to atone for the sins or wrongdoings of your relatives or ancestors. This would make you realize that lives are more interconnected than you think.

Observing time on a clock

Observing time on a clock is a dream that in itself can be interpreted in different ways, all of which depend on the clock's speed. If in the dream, the clock hands were spinning much faster than they should be, you may be feeling that time's going by too fast. Maybe there are facets of your life that are progressing too quickly for your liking, such as a job or a relationship. A different connotation of this version of the dream may involve an anxiety deriving from an aspiration, or desire, including sexual desires, which may not have been realized yet. You feel that time is running out and that terrifies you. On the other hand, if the clock's hands in the dream were moving too slow, you may be dreading an inevitable event coming into your life. The event in question may run the gamut from a deadly accident to a long-sought sexual encounter. A slow-turning clock in a dream may likewise foreshadow a long life ahead. The more specific the nuances of the clock, the more detailed the dream's message could become.

A clock with no face

A faceless clock or a clock with no face is a bad omen. This symbol usually portends a grim event unfolding in the near future. You could be involved in a controversial incident or experience an unfortunate accident. While seemingly random, this awful event bears an important lesson. Perhaps it serves to balance a previous mistake or wrongdoing. To avert this disaster, you may need to strengthen your faith and try not to ruffle any feathers to avoid attracting negative energy.

Ticking of a clock

To hear the ticking of a clock in a dream means you would constantly experience life's ups and downs with not a lot of respite in between. If you only hear the ticking without actually seeing the clock, then this could be an allusion to your strong intuition. You may have a knack for solving problems using your instincts and gut feel, but perhaps this is also the reason why trials continue to come your way. In trying to overcome various challenges, you would have to acquire the necessary skill and attitude to eventually reach your ultimate goal. On the other hand, this can also be a cry for help. The ticking of the clock may be that small voice at the back of your mind letting you know that someone close to you is in dire need of your help.

Hands of a clock moving backwards

Looking at a clock and noticing that the hands are moving backwards or counter-clockwise means you would soon enter a rough patch. Perhaps you are gunning for a promotion at work and you would have to overcome a lot of challenges before you would be deemed worthy of the position. Or maybe you are working on getting a business venture to take off and there are a lot of hoops you have to jump through in order to turn out a decent profit.

A tower clock

Whatever it is that you have looking forward to, this dream vision suggests its imminent fulfillment.

A broken clock

Dreaming of a broken clock reveals intimacy issues with your current partner. You may be dissatisfied with your sex life for various reasons, one of which may be your partner's unwillingness to perform certain acts that turn you on. Perhaps your partner's lack of experience is also a factor. In that case, you may have to teach him or her to be more relaxed and uninhibited during sex in order to avoid being sexually frustrated. On the other hand, if you were just angry and annoyed at seeing the broken clock, then perhaps this vision also alludes to your impatient and domineering personality.

A stopped clock

Dreaming of a clock that has stopped often reveals the dreamer's poor time management skills. You may be feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do, so you end up struggling to allocate your time efficiently. This includes both work-related tasks as well as your personal commitments. Perhaps you need to learn how to delegate smaller tasks to others so you can focus on your priorities.

To see a tower clock or clock tower falling down and breaking into pieces is a bad omen in dreams.

This unfortunate circumstance is out of your control and could happen either to you or someone close to you, like your friends or loved ones.

A new clock
