To dream of yams represents feelings of effort taken to show love or caring. Proving you love someone with your actions instead of words. Doing some difficult because you about someone. Feeling that it’s a good idea to make an extra effort to care about someone else’s feelings. Taking extra time for problems that you feel are important to fix.
Alternatively, yam may reflect sensitivity about having to except yourself the way you are. Caring about your own needs because nobody else will.
Negatively, yams may reflect feeling of excessive supportiveness, unwanted gestures of love, or feeling that you have to care about people more than you want to. Fear of not being able to make a safe or smooth change. Feeling trapped in a situation where you promised a change would be easy and smooth. Frustrations with how long it takes to solve problems in a peaceful, passive, or safe manner. Awareness of yourself not being happy having to support or take care of other people.
Example: A woman evangelist dreamed of seeing yams being planted and growing. In waking life she was afraid she couldn’t easily and smoothly move her ministry to better location without losing or angering her congregation. She told people that everything would be okay, but started to have doubts she could keep that promise. The yams being planted in this case may have reflected her awareness of herself making promises to her congregation that would force her to make a lot more effort in caring about her congregation than she wanted to.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of being given a yam. In waking life she was having a lot of frustrations at work and was looking for easier safer solutions. She didn’t like all the extra work and special time required of her to fix the problems at work.
