Dream of Parents – Meaning and Symbolism

The dream symbolism could be divided into the two observational parts – one is when you look at the dream from the perspective of an object, and other is when you look at the dream motive from the perspective of a subject.

At the level of the subject, each character is a parable of our own self, which means that we appear as someone else ourselves. If the character is scared, we are subconsciously afraid too.

What is happening to that person is actually happening to ourselves, so we can interpret that character by looking at ourselves.

At the object level, it is not important to observe the character but his relationship with others. Especially when familiar faces appear in the dream, looking through the prism of the object will explain how we subconsciously experience them.

Now, the dream of the parents is very significant to observe since it can reveal so much of you personally, your fears since they are connected to the past, and the events that shape you into the person who you are today (and who is having his dream).

But it is also very important to know that the dream of the parents does not always represent our relationship to them, but our relationship to life itself, and some of its aspects.

Meaning of a Dream of Parents

First of all, we must say that if you had the dream where your parents appear, and in real life, they are still alive and well, in that case, this is the dream that is good, and it means that you can expect happiness and satisfaction in work and in your private life. Everything you know and everything you have done in your life now comes to the right place; it is all good.

But, if you had a dream where the main motive is your parents, and they are long gone, in your real life, in that case, the success and happiness that you have been experiencing will be “limited” to the business you are doing. In addition, you have a solution to the problem you have experienced so far, and you could not expect to happen.

If in a dream you see your parents, like they are speaking to you, in that case, you need to pay extra attention to your life and actions that may lead you into the wrong place, where you will not be able to find happiness, know something was wrong so be careful.

In some cases, you should not listen to yourself, but you should listen to someone who is close to you and wants you to do well.

If in a dream you have seen your parents die, and we will tell you that this is the dream that is very common, still this dream has a positive meaning, so you can expect major and life-changing success, it is guaranteed, but with maximum effort and responsibility. You will not be able to reach that place very easily, but when you do, it is going to last.

Escaping your parents in a dream implies that you are immature. It is possible that despite your age, you can still act like a kid who didn’t get a favorite toy. It’s easier for you to ignore the problems and let them pile up, after which you resort to solutions that only do you harm.

The Symbolism of a Dream of Parents

If we want to tackle into the symbolical values of the parents like the movie in a dream world, in that case, you should be happy if you had this dream – it symbolizes happiness. And this symbolism applies if the parents in your dream are healthy and they are happy in it.

Everywhere you feel rejected and superfluous so you don’t trust your partner or friends when they say they care about you and that they won’t hurt you.

What to do if I had this dream?
