Dream meaning: Family

FamilyIn general, dreaming of a family member represents the relationship between you and that person. It can reflect worries about the relationship; disharmony; interpersonal tensions; projections (aspects of yourself) you have directed onto your relative. Parents may represent your attitudes toward authority; wisdom or rules or attitudes you have been taught; ways in which you are like your parents.

Being at a family gathering suggests your background and life experience; feelings of connection with a line of heritage. Singling out a particular person at the gathering may indicate some quality that you now need to utilize or develop within yourself. It may signal that feelings similar to those you have about your relative have been awakened by a present situation, although you may not have consciously recognized it. Depending on his or her dream behavior, a brother or sister can sometimes represent your anima or animus.

    I had a dream a couple nights ago that my mom and her 2 sisters (one is paraplegic, she was walking in the dream) and I was at my dad’s mom’s house and so were they. And for some reason, they looked like they came out of the back room stoned. It was funny actually. I would have never seen this coming.

    I had this dream where I was living with my mom (i live with my dad cuz my mom and i dont get along) and she wanted me to paint my door a certain way but i liked it the way it was and didn’t want to paint so she said that i had to live with my dad and she started packing my things. Then she walked out. I layed on my bed and started crying. Then i woke up crying.
