A father is an interesting symbol in one’s dream. There is one exception to the rule regarding dreams about other people and that is dreams about family.
Rather than representing an aspect of you, a “father” featured in one’s dream represent’s how you handle your relationships. For example, your father represents your power or authority in your relationships.
If you have a dream of your own father or alternatively, being a father then this means that there are going to be difficult days ahead. The father normally plays an important role in an individual’s life and family. A father can serve as the decision maker in a family. The dream may portray the father as the role of being a teacher who lectures their children regarding the important lessons in life.
Most, if not all, of the time our dreams pertaining to our parents (regardless if he’s our dad or our mom) depicts a symbol of what it literally means or happening in real life, in our family, or in your own family.
In your dream you may have…
Positive changes are afoot if…
Detailed dream interpretation…
To see your father in your dreams is a way of asking yourself how you can show authority, your right, your power, and your ruling strength in your family. You need to be more independent from your parents and be more self-reliant especially in terms of decision making, and in your judgments. This could also mean that these skills are lacking and you need to work extra hard and double the effort in applying it to your life.
This is also a perfect time for you to assess the relationship that you currently have with your father. May it be healthy or not, you might want to pay him a visit? Have a little chat, a dinner, or watch a game during late nights as you might not know, he is longing to see his siblings and wants to reminisce the good old times you had with them.
Dreaming of your father who is dead is something we all wouldn’t want to experience. However, reality bites, this may serve as freedom from an untangled issue with your father. There are some interpretations where seeing your father dying is to let the negative aspects in your life die, so that positive ones can come in.
Hitting your father in your dream means you need to work out your relationship with him that requires a greater closeness with him. And you are feeling to be neglected, or he is not listening to every word you say and offends you, your feelings, and your ego tremendously. If it is the other way around, then your emotional connection is lacking.
Seeing your father angry at you in your dream denotes your personal anger towards him. This could also mean that he is disapproving something that you’re about to do, or that you’re about to decide.
Disconnection with your parents is the primary cause of dreaming your father having a girlfriend/mistress.
Your father is drunk, foolish, and incapable means that you are being freed from emotional repression while an unexpected help is about to come if your father is in wakefulness or is ill in your dream.
Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of your father…
Understanding, recuperation, hope, self realization, awareness, assessments, strength, dedication, perseverance, loyalty, and firmness.
