Detailed dream meaning...

Depending on whether you got along with your old boss is going to have a lot of basis in a dream. If you dream of an old boss that you got along with famously then this is usually a good or helpful dream.

When you dream that a boss that you got along with says something good about you, this is a good sign for a promotion or money coming your way from a solid business deal or decision. It is also a good omen for money if your old boss was seen at your work place or he congratulated you in some way.

If you see a boss that you did not get along with or a boss that fired you, this is usually a warning sign about your current job or the work you are doing in your waking life. These dreams warn you that similar actions will reoccur if you don’t leave or change your ways. Sometimes of course, these can be dreams based on fear or stress from an old job but usually they arise when there are similar instances in your life.

Bosses in general in dreams link to situations in your waking life that were like those that you had when you had the previous boss. For instance if you are getting married to a person that you started dating when you were at your old job, the old boss can indicate remembering the work put into the relationship. The boss represents work that still needs to be done in the relationship and can be a sign that you are on a good path in your current relationship.

If you are dreaming of an old boss just before you finish a big project or are enduing a lot of stress in your current job this is a warning dream telling you to focus and keep your eye on your current work. These kinds of dreams are your psyche’s way of telling you that you are needing focus and resolve to complete the task at hand.

If you dream of receiving advice from an old boss, especially one in which you had a relationship that was good, this is a positive sign about investments, taking risks with money, and wealth in general. Take heed to the advice that you were given as often these dreams have prophetic meanings as well. The advice is to meditate and imagine your old boss, ask him why he visited you in your dream, maybe he needs help? Talk to him spiritually, then you should be clearer on why you had this dream.

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

  • Changing jobs.
  • Getting a promotion or a raise.
  • Buying a house.
  • Making investments.
  • Handling money.
