What Does It Mean When You Dream about Broken Glass?

Did you just have a dream about broken glass? Are you wondering what it might mean? Bad luck? Or that you’ll break some glass sometime in the not-too-distant future?

What significance does your broken glass dream have, if any? Can you just forget about it? Let’s take a look at a few possible meanings. Remember, these interpretations are largely subjective and contextual.

1. You might experience some future problems

Broken glass dreams can be a sort of warning about problems you might run into in the future.

If you’re dreaming of broken glass and are about to embark on something new in any aspect of your life, then you might want to take a closer look, and see if you can’t slow things down just a bit, to be on the safe side.

Your subconscious could be trying to warn you that the current path you’re on, will lead to very undesirable results eventually.

2. You’ve broken promises, or will have promises made to you broken

When you give someone your word on something, you’re asking them to trust you. Trust is a very delicate thing, and once broken, it can be very hard to put back together again.

If you’re dreaming of broken glass, it’s either because you have broken or will break promises you’ve made to yourself or others, or someone close to you is about to break the promises they made you.

This broken glass dream is your subconscious mind’s way of giving you a heads up of the betrayal, or of helping you process the guilt you feel for breaking your own word.

3. It could mean problems with your relationship

Is your relationship currently undergoing some turmoil? Then perhaps your broken glass dream simply represents what you’re going through in a present, significant relationship.

It could signify the end of your romantic relationship. Your subconscious mind is preparing you for the worst, so you can deal with it as smoothly as you can.

4. You’ll get over issues in your life

Your broken glass dream could signify that the obstacles and challenges you’re facing right now, are temporary. You’re going to get over them – even though the process might be a tad painful, and utterly radical.

This type of dream is simply preparing you for the change that you seek. You’ll get it, but you’re going to have to pay a price.

5. You’re feeling very fragile and vulnerable

Have you been going through some tough times, that have you wondering how much more you can take? Are you under a lot of pressure, at home, or at work, or with your own personal expectations, which you feel you’ve failed to meet?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then right now, you might be feeling very vulnerable. You feel like any time now, you’re going to just break and give in. You feel fragile, not unlike glass.

Your dream about broken glass signifies the fears and anxieties you have, about finally being swallowed whole by all the many insurmountable challenges around you.

Know that there is an inner strength, a resilience in the human spirit. You have to believe that. Once you do, and you tap into it, there is nothing you cannot face down and overcome.
