A dream of hammering nails predicts that if you work very hard, you will be able to achieve something you thought was beyond your reach. To see shiny or new nails in your dream forecasts unexpected news. Dreams about bent or rusty nails signify minor delays or slow progress. Also see “Fingernails”.
Spiritually the nail represents necessity and fate. Nails also signify ultimate sacrifice and pain and may suggest instruments of torture, either spiritual or physical.
From a mundane viewpoint, if we are nagging someone else in dreams we may actually be trying to justify our own actions. There may be a play on words here in that a nag is also an old horse, often one that does not deviate from a particular routine.
In old-fashioned parlance a nag was a scold or cantankerous old woman. If in waking life we are used to negative reinforcement, nagging may have this relevance in both men’s and women’s dreams.
If you dream of eating nachos, this suggests that you are procrastinating or making excuses about something.The spicier the nachos were, the more trouble you are having.
(arb. See Five times prayers)
To nag almost always has a negative connotation, but when a spiritual idea or feeling keeps coming back and nagging at us we would be very wise to pay attention.
In dreams, if we are being nagged or scolded we will have recognized that we are not heeding our own inner truth.
