Flowers are generally given as gifts for celebration, during illness and in sympathy. The dream could be a sign that you need to show someone in your waking hours some generosity or gentleness.

Flowers that are not yet at full bloom might represent your potential and hidden talents. Perhaps you need to explore these more if you are not reaching your goals or if you don’t feel satisfied with your achievements right now.

If the flowers were white, you may be feeling sad at present. Why is this? Can you call upon someone to help you through this difficult time?

Dead flowers are a negative sign that you will feel disappointment and endure challenging situations in the near future. It might indicate the end of a relationship, especially as flowers are also gestures of love.

It’s possible you have let your talents go to waste and you need to discover new ones as an opportunity has passed because of your laid-back attitude.

Flowers are also given for achievements, so perhaps you feel that you are due a reward for something in your waking hours.

If you were little in the dream and losing your teeth- this can be interpreted as letting go of part of your old self. If you feel like you're putting on a mask or an act, it could be that you believe you aren't being true to who you really are. If you fear growing old or have recently reached a milestone birthday- it could be linked to the distress you feel as you may believe you've lost the opportunity to do something in turning a certain age. Losing your teeth in a dream can also be about change- if you are moving house, changing jobs, starting or ending a new relationship then you might be anxious or uncertain about the shift in your life. That jolt when you think you have actually lost your teeth can be attributed to the same uneasy feeling you get when you are in the midst or about to embark on change.
