Family in Dreams

Dreams featuring our family members can be reassuring. They may give us confidence and support, or they may concentrate on present long-term problems from which we have little prospect of escape.

To have a Mother in dream usually signifies the love or pains we still feel in connection with her. Mother can represent all we want in a caring and loving relationship, or perhaps all we didn't get. We may dream about our mothers in many different forms. She may be disguised in our dreams, and it is our job to find her in there. The general image of "mother" in a dream may symbolize a variety of feelings and ideas: caring, nurturing, love, acceptance, hard work, sacrifice, etc.

Traditionally, a Father dream can be seen as symbolizing authority and power. In our dream we may be expressing our attitude about strengths and weaknesses as they relate to our position in life and our general attitude toward society.

Siblings are a fantastic source of dream material. Our siblings are important to us emotionally and psychologically. We are bound to them on some level throughout our lives; thus, they will appear in our dreams in many different forms. We learn important lessons about ourselves through our brothers and sisters. They are a reflection on us, and we can not escape their presence and their love, hate or any other emotion. If you have many unresolved issues with your siblings, it is likely that they will frequently appear in your dreams.

hi there,

i had a a dream last night that i am finding hard to interpret. I am of pagan/wiccan origin and have had quite a few bad experiences in my life.
Last night i dreamt that i was being chased across my town car park by my mothers partner who assulted me when i was younger.
He grabbed hold of me and stabbed me several times in the stomach.
I carried on running and he followed me, when i got to the corner of the road i stopped and saw a REALLY bright blue light in the sky, which shone down on me like a beam of light and took me up into the clouds just before he got me again.
Once i was in the sky i was absorbed in this light with my dad and fiancee, you assured me i was going to be okay.
There was also something about illegal drugs that me and my fiancee joked about whilst we were all in this astral like light.

Can you explain this?

If you are being CHASED in your dream, maybe you are running away from or trying to escape those things that are frightening and unpleasant (possibly your traumatic experience with the person who is chasing you).

Stabbing in your dream does not have positive connotations. It may reflect the unrest and difficulty that you are experiencing. The person who stabbed you in your dream you perceived as enemy; your unconscious mind may be encouraging you to conquer your fears.

The sky you dreamt can show what an immense potential you have to overcome your negative emotions.
Also, light is a very positive symbol. It represents enlightenment, lifting of shadow, the acquisition of understanding and knowledge, and a positive force. Depending on the details of the dream, you may give the light spiritual or physical meaning. For some, the light may represent a higher force or power, God's presence, or rays of His love and peace. Others may find this dream reassuring as it may represent a well-lit journey through life, or simply a solution to a current problem. When you see a blue colour in dream, that signify: spirituality, optimism, positive thoughts, communication.
