Intellectually, bamboo represents good breeding, long life and a fulfilling old age. On top of that, it highlights the ability to yield when under pressure.
The pliability of bamboo indicates yielding but enduring strength. It is used as a cure in feng shui (the art of placement) because it is fast-growing, sturdy and will thrive in a variety of conditions. It will now have gained much of that significance in dreams.
To see bamboo in your dream symbolizes your trustworthiness and strength. You easily bounce back from disappointments in your life. This dream may also refer to strong family and friendship ties.
Man is symbolized by the bamboo, inherently perfect yet able to be pliant – to bow before the storm. The bamboo also signifies gracefulness and friendship. In china, the seven-knotted bamboo denotes the seven stages of initiation undergone before becoming an adept.
The flute generally signifies celestial music. In many cultures, ceramic instruments express the desire to unite earth and music in order to supplicate the benevolent spirits and elicit their favour. Bamboo or wooden flutes call forth the sounds of the wind or spirit.
