Pail – The pail carries the water of the spirit. It is a symbol of the body and the human journey. If you dream about a pail, take care to memorize its characteristics. Remember its size, color, newness and any identifying marks. These clues might tell you who the person is. It may even be you. The amount of water in the pail could be indicators of two different things. The first is the richness of the soul inside that person. The more water, the richer their soul. It can also represent how long you can expect them to live. The less water, the sooner they will pass from this life.
