To dream of a hammer can portray how you are taking the initiative in some way to straighten out a situation or resolve it. The hammer shows a focus on power and cohesiveness - with the idea of 'hitting the nail on the head' or 'pounding out a solution.' If you are searching for a hammer or have misplaced it - you may feel powerless in a situation. If the hammer is deformed - you may not be seeing the situation in its proper perspective.
