Dreaming of his father: What meanings?

The father is one of the most important people who can appear to people in dreams. It is associated with the role of breadwinner and protector. Since the father and mother, as a rule, played an important role in the life of most people, dreaming about his father should always be carefully analyzed:

The father is one of the most ambiguous dream symbols. Generally, it represents control, authority and motivation. Unlike the mother, who represents care and emotion in dreams. In order to find the correct interpretation of the male parent, therefore, special attention should be paid to the circumstances and situation of this type of dream and what relationship the dreamer has with his father.


The general interpretation

If the father appears in the dream, it can signify the close relationship with his own father or the traits that were shaped by the father. However, the biological father should not always be literally understood in the dream, as this dream symbol can also represent a father figure or an authority figure who exerts a strong influence on the dreamer.

If adults dream of their father, he often symbolizes a helpful mediator for serious issues that need to be resolved urgently. Even if he appears in the dream as a patriarch or pasha, this interpretation can be used.

If a young person dreams of his father, this symbol is to be interpreted more as an opponent who represents a generational conflict. However, this only applies to threads; if a young girl dreams of a father figure, it represents the wishful thinking of a first friend.

If a woman dreams of her father, then it is interpreted as a lover or it points to the search for a new partner who must correspond to the desired image shaped by the father.

A married woman longs for the qualities of her father that her husband should have. It may also be that the dreamer has a bad conscience - especially when the father dies in the dream, this interpretation usually applies.


The psychological interpretation

The dream symbol "father" is often interpreted in psychological interpretation as an indication of neurotic disorders that can date back to childhood.

If a son dreams of his father, this dream symbol usually assumes the role of authority figure and role model. However, the old gentleman can also be seen as a rival - that is, an adversary - since he is the mother's husband, who has a close bond with the son.

According to Sigmund Freud, these ties go back to the so-called "Oedipus complex", since, according to Greek myth, Oedipus murdered his father in order to marry his mother. Freud believed that people subconsciously seek partners who resemble mothers in men and fathers in women. These traits can relate to both the appearance and the personality of the householder.

Carl Gustav Jung, a longtime close friend and colleague of the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, was of the opinion that the father in the dream also represents the rational, i.e. the intellectual. The mother, on the other hand, being the emotional, the soul.

In summary: If women dream of their father as a protector, this is generally seen in psychological dream analysis as a search for safety and security, but also as an indication that they are looking for a new partner who matches the ideals of their father. The elder in the dream urges order and discipline in his own life.


spiritual interpretation

If his deceased father appears in the dream, this is interpreted as an indication of great help and the solution to a serious problem. This useful intermediary also sometimes appears in the form of an old man who does not necessarily have to look like his own father.

The solution to a complicated situation can also appear in the dream by the fact that the dreamer himself becomes a father.
