A dream about a cushion often symbolizes comfort, relaxation, and ease. But the dream is often more nuanced.

It may indicate a desire for a more comfortable life or a need for emotional support. If you're sitting or lying on a cushion in your dream, it may suggest that you're in a comfortable position in your life, or that you're seeking comfort in a situation. However, it could also mean that you're too comfortable and need to push yourself out of your comfort zone.

A cushion can often be a deep and multifaceted dream object to pin down for sure. To really say for sure, I would have to understand the dreamer's past and circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of a cushion, in Freudian terms, may represent a yearning for maternal comfort or a return to the womb's safety.

Somewhat similarly: It's a manifestation of the unconscious desire for protection and solace. If you're situated on a cushion in your dream, it could symbolize a Freudian regression, a retreat to an earlier, more secure stage of life. However, it might also suggest a complacency, a reluctance to confront life's challenges, reflecting Freud's concept of 'resistance'. The cushion, in this context, becomes a symbol of the ego's defense mechanisms, shielding the self from the harsh realities of the external world.0

Dreaming of a cushion or resting upon one can be seen as a spiritual symbol of divine support and comfort. It may indicate that you are being held and protected by a higher power, suggesting a deep sense of trust and faith. If you're sitting or lying on a cushion, it may symbolize a spiritual retreat, a time of introspection and connection with your inner self. However, it could also be a spiritual nudge, reminding you not to become too complacent in your spiritual journey, urging you to rise from your comfort zone and continue your path towards enlightenment.
