To dream about a shed full of tools pertains to how confident you feel about your ability to fix a situation in your waking hours.

Do you believe you have what it takes to overcome this obstacle either physically or mentally? 

If so, perhaps the dream is telling you to get started. If not- maybe you need to recruit some help from a professional or a trusted friend to deal with whatever problem it is you are facing. 

Consider who was with you in the dream as this might be the very person who can assist you in escaping your dilemma or undoing what has gone wrong for you. 

The dream could be a pun for shedding light on a situation in your life. Perhaps you are able to see something more clearly now that you struggled to make sense of before. 

If you were standing outside a shed but wouldn’t enter it and put the tools to good use, perhaps you are able to do something about a situation in your waking hours but you refuse to.

Maybe the dreamscape is telling you to help someone in need even if you feel they don’t deserve it. Are you trying to teach this person a lesson? 

Things will go more smoothly if you simply give in and do it yourself so it may be better for everyone involved if you swallow your pride and get the job done. 

Alternatively, if you think someone would benefit from making the inevitable mistakes associated with the task and learning from them, it might be prudent to let them take something from the experience. 

To shed can also be the act of discarding something you don’t need or want anymore such as shedding skin or hair for instance. 

Is there something that no longer adds value to your life? If so, it might be time to part ways. Consider what excess you have in your space as this might be the perfect place to start. 

More literally- the things you need to shed might reside in the wooden building in your outdoor space. 

A shed is typically somewhere one would keep tools, gardening equipment and outdoor gadgets. 

If there was something in the shed that you felt didn’t belong- try to remember what it was. It’s possible you feel something is out of place in your life at present and you need to find a better location for it. This might refer to you rather than an item- do you think you fit in at work, in your friendship circle or at home for example? If not, it might be time to do something about it using the tools you have at your disposal.

If there were tools in your dream that you had no idea how to use, perhaps you are feeling unprepared for something in your waking hours. This is also true if you saw tools that you couldn’t reach, even if you did know what they were designed for. To dream of learning to use a tool, implies that you are making an effort to become more independent and resourceful. The dream could be telling you to keep going as the skills you are acquiring could come in useful in both your professional and personal life. Consider who else was with you in the dream as seeing tools and someone specific could mean you have issues that need to be fixed within this particular relationship...
