Rice dreams & hidden clues
In our dreams rice tends to appear in many various ways sort of like a metaphoric clue that will get you closer to the true significant meaning. Keep in mind that rice in dreams is not a symbol that should be taken for granted; an ancient grain only appeared when something big is in the making of future growth.

Rice dreams & nourishing your soul
One of the first clues that should tell you about the value of rice is the fact that it is edible. Food in our dreams is a powerful omen that points towards nourishing and rewarding some aspect of your personal life.
The next way we encourage you to examine the rice is the fact that it is linked to it’s harvest and planting. Metaphorically speaking anything that is either harvested and planted in our dreams informs you that this new growth might unconscious to you and you will see the benefits in the future.
Rice dreams and the power of fertility
There has been a strong connection with rice and fertility. Maybe this is why it is thrown at our weddings; In the old days, marriage meant expansion, from building a family to increasing one’s assets. Rice in dreams then represented fertility and prosperity, and tossing it at couples implied best wishes and good luck-for newborns, good harvests, and everything in between.
In our dream the connection with having a family and rice is not uncommon, in fact many people report having dreams of rice when a baby might be on the horizon. We can also view the thousands of white rice in the dream hinting at the sperm and the nourishment of the egg.
This might be why so many people are dreaming of lots of rice during pregnancy; known as a powerful omen connected to immortality, regeneration and multiplying your seeds.
Biblical meaning of rice dreams
In the period following the post-exilic rebuilding of the Jewish temple in the 5th century B.C., rice was introduced to the people of Judea by the Persians. Even though rice is not really mentioned in the bible, in our dreams one can extract a different meaning to find the answer. For example, if a rice is a grain than you must look at the meaning which is about charity and love.
So one can interpret rice in our dreams in a biblical sense to show love and help others that need.
God mentions: Verily, verily, I say unto you, еxcept a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
Rice dream interpretations
- When the dreamer notices that rice is uncooked in their dream it still is a positive omen but requites patience in order to reap the benefits.
- Noticing either rice fields or rice bags in your dream often points to an abundance of things in your life that will grow. Because it is uncooked it will take time to obtain the rewards but encourages you to be patient for good things to come.
- To dream of rice an milk is a very positive omen that is suggesting you will be rewarded something internally. Because the cow nourishes us it points to the divine feminine energy or pregnancy.
