Detailed dream meaning
Protection obviously has a link to dangerous situations and a wish to avoid people who cause you trouble. If life has been bad recently, then the dream may reflect your need for reassurance right now. But protection in dreams may have a deeper meaning. You may be trying to protect people from your own worst habits and tendencies. Also you may wish to protect some hopes and dreams from your own doubts and negative feelings.
When you have a dream of protecting others there is often a feeling of fear or relativity in your dream. This is an indication of what you need in your own life or how you should be using your energies. Consider situations that you are faced with where your own drive to protect others would be needed. In areas of parenting and when this is reflected in your own dream, it is a call that your child is in a situation where your help is needed. Often when you have dreams like this the help is not asked for in the waking world, but should still be offered. This can be a positive bonding experience for you as well.
When you are helping someone and protecting them from someone else by offering them shelter as a way out this can be an indication that you need to exhaust resources in order to put your own past right. Usually these dreams will show that you are in a place in your own life where you need to pay for mistakes that are coming or will be coming to light. It’s best to get ahead of the curve and admit any wrong doings at this time.
Dreaming of protecting those that you do not know – especially from a large threat – can be a good omen for your waking world regarding increased responsibilities. Right now you need to be in a position of strength and rely on your own convictions for success.
This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life
- Standing up for someone or something that you believe in
- Being upset about aspects of your life
