Baklava is made from layer upon layer of thin dough so it could mean that you need to pull back the layers on something in your waking hours.

Perhaps someone has just scratched the surface with you and you need to keep shedding the layers in order to let them in. 

On the other hand, maybe you are the one who is revealing new things with every layer you strip away from someone else. 

The dream could be telling you to persist as they will come to trust you with every new piece they reveal to you.

Baklava is held together with frosting, honey or syrup, so if you dream about it, perhaps you are the person who is holding something together at present. You are the glue that is binding two people in touch or the person who is keeping two things on an even keel. 

Perhaps it’s time to let go of this responsibility and let the people or the things go it alone. 

On the other hand, maybe you haven’t given yourself credit for how integral you are to the people or things coming together as one. Give yourself a pat on the back and let others praise you for your efforts. 

In order to give baklava its moistness- the pastry has to be drenched in the chosen wet ingredient.

Perhaps you feel like you are drowning in something that has become too much for you. 

How can you break it down to a more manageable amount? Do you need some outside help?

Baklava is made from a flaky filo pastry- so the dream could be a warning to you not to be so flaky in your waking hours. 

In other words don’t commit to something unless you fully intend to go through with it and try to be a more reliable person if this is your downfall. 

Perhaps your unreliability is driving people away- people who you want to be close to. 

If you know this is the problem between you it might be wise to do something about it.  

Baklava is of course a sweet dessert so maybe you are tired of someone being so sickly sweet with you. 

Perhaps you don’t trust them because they are being over the top with their niceness. 

On the flipside, you may be trying to fool someone by being overly kind but the truth is they can see right through the facade so perhaps it’s time to stop and be true to who you really are.

To dream about fasting suggests that you are intentionally depriving yourself of something in your waking hours. This could be a literal dream which refers to food or it might represent something else- what do you feel you have lost or are losing? Although this may sound like a negative thing- perhaps you are doing it because it will benefit you in the long term and you knew this from the outset but still feel sad all the same... to read more click HERE
