Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Hello, my name is Flo and I am here to help you decode this dream. A woman featured in a dream is common.

The woman in dreams is a reflection of you and can also be connected to repressed desires. The dream could have featured a group of women, a known female or an unfamiliar woman. Freud believes that every dream that we have is a symbol of our current state of mind. Recent modern interpretation of this dream indicates that the dream is connected to love, honor, nurture, temptation and our own inner personality.

What does dreaming of a women mean according to Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung?

I will start with the famous dream psychologist in the 1930s, Sigmund Freud. When I read his book, there was a degree of focus on the Freud “dream” formula which is pleasure-need-fulfillment. He basically believed that our dreams were considered in these in either pleasure, need or fulfillment classes. When you dream of a woman it could indeed mean a reflection of your pleasures in life, your “female” needs or desires. Alternatively, a fulfillment that you require in life maybe cares and attention. In trauma dreams, for example, the woman was attacking you it can indicate a conflict between a pleasure and a need according to Freud. This is a really interesting analysis which we can apply to the dream of a woman. Sometimes, the woman herself may be distorted or a parent. Carl Jung believed to dream of a woman was connected to our animal instincts and that it showed our caring and nurturing side.

The dream about a woman is connected to emotion, greed, and energy. It also demonstrates the need to recognize life, death, and rebirth, and the woman’s image in your dream shows this process and the circle of life. A woman, either in work or business demonstrates happiness in your life, even if you are a woman yourself. In each female, there is a need to express and there is also an instinct to nurture. This dream also signifies he caring side of one's personality. I will now turn to the spiritually meaning that surrounds this dream, to dream of a woman is a reflection of different spiritual messages depending upon how the woman was perceived in your dream. The way that she communicating in your dream is also equally important. I have gone over some popular dream lore below on what women can mean from a spiritual perspective. Suffice to say, if you are a man and you dream of a woman it can indicate your pleasure-need in life if it was sexual in nature.

What if the woman in your dream is a close friend?

If you dream of a close female friend then this can indicate that your relationship with your friend is of happiness and contentment from a spiritual perspective. I must go further in this “woman” dream, we also need to analyze Freud's concept of punishment. Perhaps a former friend in a dream appeared. This is recognized as your underlying assertion according to Freud. So, the importance of what the woman was doing - should be enhanced depending on her details. Also, does the dream make you feel better?

What does it mean if the woman in the dream is your partner?

To dream of your partner, wife or lover is extremely common, in fact, we generally have at least two dreams of our partner each week according to scientists. In order to define what the meaning is we need to turn to the details of how your partner was perceived in the dream state. I would say that you must turn to the similarities in the dream. Interestingly, from a psychological point of view to dream of your partner who is female illustrates an understanding of yourself. Yes, it is about you! It is how you communicate in this relationship.

I know, you are wondering why that this is of particular interest and why this dream suddenly occurred in your subconscious mind. Let me explain, in waking life learning about your partner can often present some major challenges. There is no particular wisdom or understanding and if you dream about your partner in a general sense then this can often be associated with the fact that you are finding it difficult to understand aspects of the relationship. Now, through our dream state of the woman, we often use our unconscious mind in order to develop self-awareness. Maybe there has been a struggle in the relationship, or you have not felt comfortable. To dream of your mother as the woman is often again connected to your subconscious mind feeling there is a struggle in the relationship.


If you dream of female co-workers it can often mean that there is something hidden from you in your working life. You should try to develop self-awareness. This will help you progress in life and reveals some complicated hidden emotions inside yourself. Try to meditate and the reason why the women appeared in a dream. Has anything happened recently in the relationship?

What is the spiritual meaning of dreaming of women?

Sometimes in dreams, we are on the edge of awareness, it is hard to decide if there are not elements in our waking world that have influenced our dream state.

Spiritually, in many dream publications on the occult ( that I have reviewed in various private subscription libraries over the years and find some sources outlined below) indicates that if you dream of a woman it is associated with the fact your subconscious mind is trying to heal. Most importantly in society women are supposed to be caring and loving. Perhaps it is because of our social acceptance of the caring mother. There could be a sense that you need to be mothered yourself and you need to be cared for!

It is always quite concerning I think when you dream of an unknown woman. It always sparks a question in your mind of why this woman appeared in a dream. In my dream state, I have had many different types of dreams that involve women that I do not know. Interestingly, from a psychological point of view the woman that you may not know could have just passed you on the sidewalk and for some reason, you’re actually dreaming of them. In my dreams, when I have encountered a woman that I didn’t know it was quite surprising how vivid this woman appeared to me. Therefore, to dream of a woman that you know or do not know generally has the same meaning. It is all connected to your female needs and wants in waking life.

This is a very common dream. The meaning still applies if you are female or male. I can remember I had a dream of a female making love to me.

This is quite interesting as I believe this is a reflection of how you feel about your own identity, in that you will find it difficult to understand where you are now where you want to be. Sorry if this makes your head spin! The goal I believe of this dream indicates how you can bring all aspects into your life in alignment to unveil your true identity.

So, let’s begin now, to see multiple women in your dream is associated with how you connect with females in the waking world it is important to understand how the women were portrayed during the dream state and how they were perceived by yourself and other people. To see a room full of women indicates social pleasures with women in the future. Now the most important takeaway from this dream is that multiple women as a “dream symbol” can also suggest that you be supported by female friends through troubles. In my view, multiple women can also suggest possible problems in regards to fertility. Now, according to ancient psychic books, women in dreams generally indicates emotional energy. Don’t worry the women in the dream can also suggest you are going to be engaging with a woman for advice and support in waking life. To see multiple women in regards to a sexual orgy in the three according to the dream psychologists Carl Joe and Freud,

What does it mean to see old women in a dream?

I have researched this dream and to see an old woman denotes that you need to focus on yourself for a while. You have not been giving yourself enough time to relax in life. Now, the symbol of an old woman is associated with your own motivation in life from a psychological viewpoint. Of course, we’ve all had the experience of being rather motivated but also unmotivated as the “motivation” does not last. Perhaps you’ve joined a gym in the past, spent money on some new gym clothes then this whole thing ended up in the fact that you were not motivated to get in better shape. The dream of an old woman indicates that motivation is called for at the moment in your life. Without motivation, your life is unable to progress, so from a psychological viewpoint, the old woman represents the fact that you need to ensure that you have the motivation to achieve your goals in life. So go out there are do it!!
