Detailed dream meaning...

Dreaming of being an officer represents needing to have or using extreme self-restraint and control in your life. Depending on your own actions while in the dream explains whether or not you need to use more control or less.

You either need to take more control or to stop using so much. For example, if you are having issues with a child that is rebelling and you dream about being a police officer using excessive force, the dream is telling you that you need to crack down on the rules and to be clear what the rules are.

Force in an officer dream, remember, does not indicate physical force in real life, but using your own skills to enforce the rules. If you let someone go in a dream where you are an officer, then you want to consider where you are using too much force and where you can lighten up. Your psyche is essentially telling you to take it easy.

When you see an officer in a dream or feel that you are running away from an officer of some kind then this is a sign that you need to right the wrongs in your own life. There may be issues in which you are running away from that need your attention. These dreams come with a warning that if you don’t follow the rules that eventually things will catch up to you.

If there is an officer’s presence in your dream but they are not interacting with you – maybe they are pulling someone over for a ticket or you get told that someone was taken into custody by an officer in a dream then this is telling you that you need to delegate tasks in your life. You don’t have to do everything and perhaps there are places where you can share your own control or power in order to make your life easier. This can also be a sign that there is a person around you that is trying to help but that you are ignoring them.

Being rescued by an officer in a dream is a positive sign. This is showing that things are going to get easier in your life. There is going to be help offered in some way and is a sign of good thing.

If you are marrying an officer in a dream, this is a good sign for marriage or relationships in your own life. This shows a marriage or relationship that has boundaries and equality that will grow and flourish. Women seeing an officer in a dream can be happy as well. A navy, army, or this kind of officer in a dream where the two are doing pleasant things together (talking, dancing, etc) shows a good relationship coming where the man is honest and protective of you.

Being in a place with many officers such as a ball or a police station indicate personal struggles where you feel confined or conflicted. If the place is pleasant then this means that you are comforted by structure and perhaps you are needing more structure in your own life. When the officers are turning on you or ready for fighting or battle, this indicates needing to get your everyday life in order to prepare for some sort of strife.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life...

  • Women looking for a man or relationship.
  • Setting rules and boundaries in your life.
  • Needing structure in your life.
  • Feeling guilty over actions.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of an officer…

Saved. Happy. Willing. Scared. Unsure. Frightened. Fear. Rescued. Wanted. Attracted. Protected.
