Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Most of us go through life with many different hopes and expectations.

We study at school and have numerous plans and ambitions. At times, some of us dream of independence. Maybe you are at school currently and you dream of being an adult, or maybe you are financially hard up and you dream of being financially free? Sometimes, we are our own harshest critics and this dream can sometimes appear when we are worrying about where our life is going. Dreaming about independence has a reference to your arrogance and pride in the waking life. The question is which part of yourself you are ready to release. Being independent in one's dream is positive. To live alone means that you may want freedom. To dream of your child being independent suggests that others will want your advice.

If you dream that you are an independent person, you will have to temper your arrogance towards others. The independence in a dream can be always be interpreted as a suggestion to your inner independence. If you admired an independent person in your dream, it denotes that you wish to be more independent in waking life. However, your sensitivity could be stopping you. In life perhaps you tend to hide your emotions because you believe your emotions can make you appear vulnerable in other people’s eyes. To become stronger, you must accept and display your true feelings. If you don’t care how other people see you then this is a good sign. To dream of independence in anyway is a reflection of how you see yourself. Do you want to become independent? If yes, work on yourself and learn how to express your real emotions. Don’t let other people’s opinion of you affect your mental health and make you dependent on them.

What does it mean to be financially independent in a dream?

If you were financially independent in the dream, it foretells a career promotion or a successfully accomplished task at work. Although you may believe you’re not capable of doing what your superiors ask of you, you will be surprised by your own abilities once you start working on a project or something for yourself. The advice here is to try to solve new problems. Find new, optimal solutions with opening your mind and be attentive to details. Yes, the devil hides in the details.

If you taught others how to be independent in your dream, it denotes you’re a born leader. People have always listened to your advice because of course you give the best advice. However, you’re not capable of giving yourself advice when you need it! If you taught for example a child to potty train in the dream this indicates that you can help other people in life. If you encounter inner issues and doubts of your own ability then the dream of teaching others to be independent often occurs. Sometimes in life we blame ourselves for other people’s mistakes. This is only natural! In my view this dream is all about teaching yourself some independence.

What does it mean to dream that you are a child but you don’t want to be in the dream?

If you had a desire in the dream to become independent but someone or something was stopping you or that you were a child, but you wished that you were an adult this is quite a common dream. Now, it can suggest that you are easily manipulated by people. Independence occurring in the dream indicates that anything is possible in the realms of human possibility. Growing up is a matter of getting to know who YOU really are. Thus, the dream of being a child can just indicate the throes of a crisis in your own identity!

You can do this only by becoming skeptical about your needs in life.

If you meet someone that has independence in life such as a famous person then it is time you give someone a chance, someone who has a strong attitude and holds an independent character.

Why not travel somewhere or plan a vacation to find yourself.

What does it mean to dream of being dependent on other people’s opinions?

This dream indicates you need to focus on yourself for a while.
