To dream of incense represents an intentionally trying to avoid thinking of anything dangerous or crazy. Preferring to be hopeful or look on the bright side while hoping for the best. Setting a positive or hopeful mood more to your liking.
Positively, dreams of incense appear when you have a problem you don’t want to think about too much. Intentionally getting your mind off something bad or focusing more positive things while a stressful situation passes.
Negatively, burning may reflect you or others that are choosing to ignore problems by focusing on more positive things when something dangerous is happening. Preferring to feel good during a serious problem because you feel everything will work out for the best when there is no guarantee that it will.
