brings to mind in a unique instant stopped water – the moment in which creative power has materialized an idea, conjured a shaped and determined a purpose, which is why many glass objects (especially artistic) symbolize emotions.
glass vessels: as hollow objects they symbolize a woman; the content, appearance or possible purity of the vessel specify sexual relations; glass, unlike an ordinary vessel, brings transparency to sexual relations.
the use of glass vessels: typical of those trying to view the contents of their own mind and prevent the acceptance of inappropriate contents of the mind based on the categorical imperative*53 that comes from within.
filling a glass vessel with water: symbolizes the desire for a clean emotional relationship and also the attempt to constantly check this purity.
glass and transparent doors: a very positive symbol – it provides the chance, even without opening, to discern what awaits us behind the door; a well known way of overcoming the barriers between two levels (usually between the instinctual and the emotional).
glass refuge: different from an ordinary refuge since the dreamer wants to see the threat.
buying glass (especially beautiful, cut or artistic): expresses the longing to discover beautiful, though fragile emotional relationships within oneself.
giving as a gift: if we know the person we are giving the gift to, then that is the person with whom the dreamer is trying to establish emotional relations; if the person is not known, then the dreamer is trying to relinquish these relations to the benefit of others.
broken: a foretelling of the end of a relationship or end of hope that the dreamer had put into a relationship; it is much better for the dreamer's psyche if he isn't the cause of the broken glass objects since then he is not accused of ending the relationship.
systematically or emotionally distinct breaking of glass objects: expresses the dreamer's subconscious desire not to reveal one's emotional content; sometimes this image can be the result of frustration from unplanned ideals and lost faith.
glassworks with red-hot furnaces: the continuous transformation of the mind's content via the inner fire ignited by concentration; the resulting glass product characterizes the mind's content or a symbolic unification process that can also be depicted by the melting itself.
melting: symbolizes the process in which concentration and acts (fire) transform the solid materials (rigid relations) into liquid, thereby allowing for emotions to enter the process of forming new relations.
