What do poppies represent in a psychic meaning?
I got given them from a family member (great great grandmother) at a psychic reading or something like that. The psychic said she was giving me poppies but im not sure why. She said something about being strong, like the colour

Was your great great grandma a Taurus? I though at first that poppies are more associated with Pisces, because of opium and it’s strengthening the imagination and the “parallel worlds”. But it looks like there is a greater Taurus connection. It probably means she is passing some strong genetic material to you like enduring passion and the sense of abundance….”If you are a poppy among the zodiac flower signs you love the finer things in life, and you love to share them with other people. You have a flare for design, a good eye for detail, and a knack for putting things together with style. Refinery comes natural to you, and you have a classy way about you that others find alluring. Poppy people are about pleasure: giving and receiving it. You enjoy security and comfort. Those with the flower sign of the poppy are very resilient too, and can weather any storm because of their patience and headstrong nature.” Check my source for more and for other flowers…
What are some good sources for cultures and dreams?
I’m researching different culture’s takes on dreams, particularly nightmares. I want to know if there are any methods different cultures did to keep away bad dreams, like the dream catcher. Sources would be very helpful.

hm.. that’s a hard one but pakistani people we.. We say a prayer before we go to sleep it’s to protect us and not give us any bad nightmares.. Also when someone suddenly is sick… My mom she takes http://www.bijlmakers.com/vegetables/hotpeppers/red%20chili%20peppers%20Bangladesh.JPG this red spice and burns it over the stove.. If smokes comes out it means someone said something bad on purpose to make you ill or if there isn’t then the person is just normal type of sick

Joseph Campbell might have some useful information on your research.
You could also google for example “meaning of dreams in mayan culture” and find some useful and interesting information for your research.
“If … we bear in mind that the unconscious contains everything that is lacking to consciousness, that the unconscious therefore has a compensatory tendency, then we can begin to draw conclusions-provided, of course, that the dream does not come from too deep a psychic level. If it is a dream of this kind, it will as a rule contain mythological motifs, combinations of ideas or images which can be found in the myths of one’s own folk or in those of other races. The dream will then have a collective meaning, a meaning which is the common property of mankind….C.G. Jung”

The Aborigines have something they call Dream Time. They have more mythology and folklore based on this, than any other culture.
This might help:
I also recommend just browsing through some books on lucid dreaming. I’ve been a lucid dreamer my whole life, along with night terrors, sleep-walking, etc. I’ve found that books pertaining to lucid dreaming have several references to different cultures.
You may also want to look up Carl Jung’s thoughts on the collective unconscious.
