Chocolate tends to have positive connotations, so dreaming about the confectionary can represent enjoyment, relaxation and love.
If you ate chocolate in your dream, perhaps you're craving some relaxation and want to indulge more in your waking life. This could be in the form of something simple like watching a movie with chocolate or you might be in need of something more impactful such as a holiday. It may be time to self soothe by whatever means you deem necessary.
If you ate white chocolate in your dream it's possible you are denying yourself of something. You may be settling for less than you're worth because you underestimate your own purpose in life. Think about your waking life- are you settling? Settling with the person you're with? Settling for the job you're in? Settling with your circumstances? If so, it might be time to shake things up.
If you received chocolate as a gift- it's possible you are thinking about love. Perhaps there's someone new in your life who you could learn to love or maybe you are ready to love and be loved in return. Alternatively, perhaps you feel your friend or loved one is denying you the attention you desire.
If you saw someone else eating chocolate in your dream maybe there is someone in your waking life who is getting in the way of your happiness by taking what's rightfully yours. Or someone who always seems to be dealt the better hand.
If you ate too much chocolate- this could be a sign that you take things to excess. It may be time to have a break from all of this overindulgence, address your responsibilities and show some restraint.
If someone offered you chocolate in your dream and you turned it down- perhaps you are denying yourself of what you really want in life. There's no one else to blame but yourself for being the barrier between you and your dreams.
Another interpretation is that you tend to indulge in short term goals with little consideration for the long-term effects of them. Perhaps you need to think more about the eventualities of the decisions you make.
If you were herding animals in your dream it suggests you are trying to get a number of people on board with an idea. Perhaps not everyone agrees with your plan and it’s proving difficult thanks to the bad attitude of some of those involved. This is especially true if in trying to gather the animals together, some of them had their own agenda and went wandering off. It’s possible you need to push on anyway as you can’t please everyone and even if it’s against their wishes, you may have no choice but to persist. On the other hand, if the animals you were herding behaved themselves, you might be in the fortunate position of having the full support of those around you...
