Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Acceptance dreams can occur when we are trying to live up to other people's expectation.

Keep your seat belt secure as I am about to focus on what acceptance means in your dream. Think about how you are perceived in the waking world. Dreaming of being accepted in a group of people is a positive omen. It indicates that your social status will increase. There are different levels of acceptance the can occur in the dream state. This could be that you pass an interview, an exam is passed or acceptance into a group of people. Generally, this dream occurs when we feel a sense of insecurity.

Detailed dream meaning

In life sometimes we are accepted by people such as jobs, companies or even groups of people, therefore, when this dream occurs it is a positive omen, especially for social status. It may be that you felt acceptance in the community (in waking life) and then for whatever reason but acceptance was taken away. This dream often occurs when one has struggled with acceptance in life. Being excluded is a difficult situation to encounter. Therefore, if for example you are excluded from a group or a relationship with the person waking life and dream of being accepted into that group this can indicate your subconscious mind trying to soothe you from the pain caused.

If you dream that you pass a job interview and you accept the job offer this as a positive omen which will foretell new financial gain and a positive career move going forward. If you dream of an acceptance letter then this can suggest that you will rise in social status. If you dream that you are accepted into a university or an institution such as the army this again is a positive omen and can suggest that you will encounter a new start in life.

Acceptance can happen in dreams in very different contexts and it's important for us to paint this dream as being a positive omen. In any situation where the dream is negative in nature, it can be associated with the need to live up to expectations in life. Perhaps you have set too high expectations on yourself and the acceptance in this instance is connected to giving yourself a break. When we are accepted in a dream it indicates that other people approve of us. From a psychological point of view, this is positive. If you have been feeling depressed in waking life the dream of "acceptance" often occurs. If you accept yourself in a dream: for example say you dislike the way your feet look and in the dream state you have the perfect feet. This indicates that your subconscious mind is trying to connect and tell you that you should be grateful.

This dream fosters the feeling of contentment. If you encounter social acceptance in any form during the dream state this is associated with a positive state of mind. In essence, this dream is connected to how we demonstrate ourselves to others. Being accepted during the dream (whatever the situation) is positive. To receive an item from somebody or a gift - and to accept this gift in the dream expresses our desire to be liked and wanted. Again, this is a positive dream.

Self-acceptance can occur when you are required to appreciate yourself. Perhaps you have suffered a bout of depression or a lack of motivation in life. If you are accepted among a group of friends in your dream this can be connected to your social status. Dreaming of accepting a wedding proposal equals a great battle won in life. The acceptance of a proposal is a powerful symbol of a wholesome friendship or dating. You perceive your new love or existing lover as equals in strength and situation. You honor your lover, and you also feel respected by him or her. This is a good sign of a relationship which you should cherish.
