Dream meaning: Mother

MotherYour personal mother and any psychological or unfinished issues related to her; archetypal images buried when we are born, hence, the collective unconscious; the anima of a male dreamer; the place of origin, paradise; the womb.

When we dream of mother during physical illness she can represent our basic physiological or somatic functions, and therefore be a message from our psyche about the nature or progress of the disease. She can also represent the need for comfort, nurturing, or nursing as in care-taking or drinking at breast.

See also child, family.

    My mom died 9yrs ago, and I often have dreams that she’s alive the Dr made a mistake but she only has a day or so before she dies again. So it’s like ‘re- living the worst day of my life over again. If anyone has any insight as to what that means I’m all ears

    I was wondering (I’m a 23 year old woman) if anyone can tell me what it means if you have sex with your mother in your dream?

    Last night I dreamed that I was driving a car, first down hill in the sand that was getting softer and deep, so I turned around and went back up the hill, i pushed my car to the limit, having good driver skills I manage to go all the way up. I was scared but made it, without stopping or I would die.Then I was in some type of morgue with my mother and it seemed that she was explaining in so many words that she will be dead soon. I was dealing - trying to deal with it. It was very painful in my heart but I wanted to validate my mother’s long time belief about death - she is not afraid of dying - She is healthy, so I am not sure how to interpret such dream.

    It is possible that you know in your subconscious that your boyfriend is not the one for you. Your dream has probably brought to the surface what you feel within.
    Role of your boyfriend’s mother:
    Maybe in reality she thinks the reverse. But then it would also depend on how you get on with her i.e. how close the two of are. In which case it might be your wish that she does think so or could also be a way of her soul trying to convey that to you.
    Tooth falling out:
    If it feels like that the two are connected - it might represent the course of your relationship.
    Or the whole thing might be that you wish that you were too good for you were too good for your boyfriend / even in another aspect of your life - as in how comfortably you feel in the current relationship or a reflection of your insecurity / self esteem.
    You may act on it if you felt very strongly about this or can put it down to a heavy dinner just before going to bed (!) and start over a new day - you might be surprised what the day brings!

    I had a dream that I was listening to my boyfriends mother talk about me to other people …
    but I was in the bathroom listening …
    and she was saying that I was too good for him and stuff along those lines …
    I dont know what to think, then I remember that I looked in the mirror and one of my teeth in the back started falling out a bleeding and it fell out ??
