Family is the standard motive, both in the Bible and in the dream world. From there, we can extract numerous meanings of such dreams, seen through the Biblical lens or some other, equally exciting and why not educational.
When we read the Holy Book, we can see that it gives so many valuable tips for happy family life and inner relations within the family itself. In it, we can find the words of how God establishes a new world and turn the Earth into a paradise. Then all families will serve him and be happy (Revelation 21: 3, 4).
It is truly comforting to know that an excellent future awaits us and that all starts from a happy family.
But we can already enjoy a happy family life if we apply the counsel that God gives us through His Word, the Bible – it is not always easy.
People are sinful, and it is not uncommon for people to do some horrible deeds to their loved ones, dads to their daughters, mothers, etc.
The Bible also touches very much on numerous parent-children questions, recognizing that sometimes it is not very easy for young people to be obedient to their parents.
However, God expects this of them (Proverbs 1: 8; 6:20), and it is also part of the journey.
Here we come to the motive that can appear in the dream world – the daughter, as one separated motive from the entire family.
Seen as the epitome of virtue and the child’s essence in numerous cultures around the world, so the motive of a daughter also has interesting meanings when it appears in dreams.
Some believe that it is possible to see the soul in the form of a girl (that appears in a dream as a daughter), and some beings from another world can turn into children.
The question is, what does it mean when a daughter appears as the symbol in dreams? Is it a good or a bad sign? What does it say, according to the Biblical interpretation?
Meaning and Symbolism
Daughter as a dream motive is common, regardless of the fact does the person who has such a dream has a daughter or not. Even children who are far from becoming parents can experience such dreams.
One of the most common versions of such a dream is the one in which you see a dead daughter that is alive in reality. Fear of every living parent in this world – the loss of a child, particularly a daughter.
Such a dream is telling you to enter a new stage in life and try to be as prepared as you can. The Bible says that the dream about the dead daughter shows the worried mind of the person who has such a dream, and the manifestation of fear that we will end, along with our ability to create, to be human.
Those who dream daughter, and do not have any kids of their own, must know that such a dream shows their elevated anxiety, which comes from the unknown reason.
If you truly have a daughter and you have a dream of her, such a dream shows that you do not have adequate care and support from your lover or the person you share life with.
In a version of a dream where you see a daughter in her younger age (now she is all grown up), this dream is the symbol of good things that will come, and it also had a good symbolism according to the Bible.
Also, it is added if the daughter in a dream is in bad condition, sad, etc., such a dream is the symbol of a desire for things that did not come true, and you wanted them so badly. If the daughter in your dreams is happy, then the resting time of happiness is in front of you, and if she is crying, then some life-changing experiences are in front of you.
The symbolism of a daughter is a continuation – and it is recognized in the Bible – she is a continuation of the clan’s female line, the embodiment of tenderness, humility, family love, and the transfer of experience.
The Bible says that when a father has a dream about his daughter, then she is his Guardian angel, a signpost from Heaven even. It is the sign that speaks of hope, new achievements, progress – or the loss of it, in some version of this dream.
If the mother is the one who dreams of a daughter, this may indicate worries, hard life, negativity, but also hope and the feeling that there is no greater connection than the one between mother and her child, in this case, daughter.
The “bigger” significance of the daughter then, for example then when someone has a dream about sons or a son, may come from the fact that there is a perception that the loss of the son is easier than the loss of the daughter since she is the one that is fragile, unprotected.
So, in a symbolical way, dreams of a loss of a daughter are fears that we may lose what we see in ourselves as fragile, tender unprotected, as well as our creational force.
Decoding Biblical Meaning of a Daughter in a Dream
The daughter was valued because it was believed that she would bring happiness into the family, and then in the time of patriarchy, her birth was not as desirable as the birth of a boy. And for that reason, its symbolism in dreams is “heavier.”
Sometimes the dream about her shows the hidden desires of a personal plan. It shows our vulnerability, fears that we can be hurt, longing to be protected from the outside harm.
Seeing a daughter in a dream is a problem that will then turn into joy. It is said in some version of the Biblical interpretation of this dream.
Some details must be taken into consideration, how the daughter was depicted in the dream.
Did the adult daughter come small? If she is small, then some dissatisfaction with her actions will turn into anxiety for her future. Your life and creational force may be in jeopardy.
If she is significant, then there are problems that are tricky to resolve.
But, the dream about a daughter can also be connected to the process of learning – the Bible speaks of it clearly. The Holy book says that children also learn something from Jesus. From his example, I can see what it means to be obedient to parents. “I speak as the Father has taught me,” Jesus said, then added, “I always do what pleases him.” – John 8:28, 29. So Jesus was always obedient to his heavenly Father.
We learn from the Bible that children are expected to listen to their parents. (Read Ephesians 6: 1-3.) Although Jesus was perfect as a child, he was obedient to his mother Mary and stepfather Joseph, who were imperfect. This certainly contributed to their family’s happiness. — Luke 2: 4, 5, 51, 52.
Now, being obedient is one thing, and a daughter in a dream sometimes shows up as the manifestation of a period of trouble, small but unpleasant.
According to the Bible, such a dream foretells that the difficult period has passed, love and mutual agreement are present.
Be aware of a dream where the daughter is sick in a dream because then a change for the worse is coming at your door, and you are not ever prepared. But you can learn something from it, that is for sure.
This is the change that is associated with the deepest parts of our beings, and that is why such dreams carry great importance.
The message behind this Dream and Advice
As you could see, family matters; all members of the family and their relations (with an accent on how to make them better, what is right, and what is not) are present in the Bible.
Jesus listened to his heavenly Father even when it was complicated for him. When on one occasion, God expected him to do something that was not easy at all, Jesus asked him, “Take this cup away from me.” And yet he did what the Father asked of him. Why? Because he believed that the Father knew best in that situation (Luke 22:42). When obedient, children can rejoice in their parents and their heavenly Father – it is written in the Bible.
The relation of a daughter with family members is also one of the topics in the Bible – it says not to be frightened by the impending trouble.
When you’re done, they’ll make you feel like a thrilled person and bring a lot of pleasant surprises.
It is easier to solve family problems when the advice from the Holy Scriptures is applied. It is crucial for the family to be happy because then we create a better world in general and fulfill His desire.
Parents are required to teach their children (Proverbs 22: 6). The father should “manage his own house well.” – 1 Timothy 3: 4, 5; 5: 8. And children are expected to listen to their parents (Colossians 3:20). Since no one is perfect, we will sometimes make mistakes.
When that happens, let’s be humble and apologize – it is the best advice we can take and apply in life.
Ending advice for all those who had such dreams – show enough care and attention for your loved ones; they are the continuation of us, the daughter specifically. Or for those who are tender and in fear.
