What does it mean when you dream about a dwarf?

Dwarfs are small people, traditionally regarded as possessing magical qualities or powers of divination. This may thus be a highly fortuitous dream symbol. Alternatively, dwarfs can be negative symbols, representing some part of the dreamer’s psyche that is stunted or repressed.

Dwarf

(dreams)
At times people will see dwarfs, midgets, or very small people in their dreams. These images seem to represent, or allude to, the childlike creative powers of the unconscious. You can think of the dwarf as a “worker” in your unconscious. He could represent some childlike condition that has the potential and power to influence your life. Consider the details and the emotional tone in the dream and make an attempt to connect it to a situation in your daily life. The dwarf suggests possibilities for learning and brings to the conscious mind messages from the unconscious.
