To have dreamt of an ornament often hints at a desire for recognition or validation. That's the simplest answer.

It may reflect your efforts to enhance your image or reputation. Decorating something with an ornament in a dream can suggest a need to add value or beauty to an aspect of your life.

It can also represent a desire to highlight or draw attention to something important to you. Both of these dreams suggest a focus on appearance, perception, and personal value.

An ornament is a somewhat very deep dream image to to give you a single meaning for. To really say without any doubts, I'd need to understand the dreamer's life story and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

To have dreamed of an ornament may signify the unconscious mind's attempt to accentuate a particular facet of the self, akin to the Freudian concept of 'overdetermination'.

I'm also thinking generally about an ornament: It could represent an overcompensation for perceived inadequacies or a desire to embellish one's persona. Alternatively, dreaming of decorating with an ornament may point towards the 'projection' mechanism, where one attributes their own feelings or thoughts onto an external object. This could be an attempt to externalize internal conflicts or to make sense of complex emotions. Both of these dreams, while focusing on the external, are deeply rooted in the internal psyche and its intricate workings.

To have dreamt of an ornament symbolizes the spiritual treasures within you, waiting to be discovered and displayed. It signifies your inherent worth, which needs no external validation. Decorating something with an ornament in a dream is a spiritual call to enhance your life with virtues and spiritual practices. It's a divine nudge to adorn your life with love, compassion, and kindness, making it more beautiful and meaningful. Both of these dreams are spiritual reminders that true beauty and value lie within us and our actions, not in external appearances or material possessions. They urge you to recognize and cultivate your inner spiritual wealth.
