The next evening I had a delightful male caller, but he remained beyond the time prescribed by mothers and I was severely censured for it.} The blue water and fairy white boat were the disappointing prospects in the symbol.


Hail

To dream that you are caught in a hailstorm suggests that you are emotionally withdrawn. Some situation beyond your control is causing you to shut down emotionally.

To hear hail in your dream indicates that you are going through a period of difficult times.

To dream of hail represents feelings of disappointment that feels intentionally hurtful. A serious matter or disappointment that is "nothing to laugh about." Feeling that someone else is ruining a good time in your life with vain anger or punishment. Disappointment that risks permanent or serious failure. A dangerous disappointment that you feel may be best to avoid for the short term. More failure or disappointment than you can handle. A disappointing situation that is so terrible it cancels out significant progress you've made. Difficult times.

You or someone else that is emotionally shutdown during a difficult time. Feelings about a dangerous aftermath to an unpleasant or difficult change. Angry bitter disappointed people in your life that make you feel like they intentionally don't want to support you or feel good about your choices.

Example: A young man dreamed of hail coming down on him. In waking life he was making big changes to his life that his family didn't like. He felt that they were being intentionally unsupportive of him so he would feel bad about the changes.

In a dream, hail means calamity, sufferings, hunger, loss of property, poverty, mass persecution, or torture. In nature, this element cools the earth and eliminates many harmful insects, worms or scorpions and limits the danger of snakes. Thus, seeing hail in its proper season in a dream means eliminating the source of one’s stress and overcoming one’s difficulties, enemies, or jealous competitors. Seeing hail in the summertime in a dream means business losses, but if it falls in the winter in a dream, it means success and prosperity. Heavy falling hail in a dream means destruction of businesses, interruption of communication and damage to roads and highways. In that sense, hail in a dream means obstruction of public interests. In a dream, hail also represents a strange type of business that will come from the direction of the wind carrying such a storm. If no harm occurs in one’s dream, then hail represents glad tidings and especially if people start collecting it in bowls. If hail falls over a farmland without damaging it in a dream, it means a good harvest. If one gathers hail in his garment, or inside a cloth in a dream, it means that he will lose his riches, or it could mean the loss of an awaited shipment.

If you dream of being in a hail storm, you will meet poor success in any undertaking. If you watch hail-stones fall through sunshine and rain, you will be harassed by cares for a time, but fortune will soon smile upon you. For a young woman, this dream indicates love after many slights. To hear hail beating the house, indicates distressing situations.


Life


Water Level

The water level of an artificial lake or a reservoir in a dream represents God’s mercy, blessings, rain, celebrations, festivals, a wed- ding, the pilgrimage season, a good harvest, or the governor’s mansion. Seeing the city’s reservoir full to capacity means glad tidings and prosperity. If one finds the water level low, and if the waterside is covered with crusts, mildew, decay and produces a fetid odor in the dream, it means drought and adversities. The city’s reservoir in a dream also represents its governor. Whatever condition it portrays in the dream, be it good or bad, will be exhibited in his work. In a dream, all gauges that are used in measuring the water level have the same interpretation.
