For most people, parents are the most important figures in their lives. Our parents help shape our personality and become responsible adults. At least, that is supposed to be their role in our lives.
Many people are not that fortunate and don’t have good relationships with their parents, especially during their years of growing up. Their parents often don’t have the capacity to give them the right amount of sound advice and emotional support that will help them grow into a stable and confident person.
Many people unfortunately carry a lot of baggage from these years and from their relationships with their parents, feelings of resentment and accusations for their parents for doing something they didn’t like or not doing something they have expected them to do.
Because we have such a close bond with our parents being our own flesh and blood, we tend to dream of them often, even in situations when our relationship with them isn’t the way we want it.
Parents symbolize safety and protection. If we dream about our parents often, that could be a sign of missing our childhood carefree days when we didn’t have a single worry.
These dreams often indicate feeling insecure in our current life circumstances or the relationships we have with other people, especially our partner’s or spouses.
Sometimes they reveal our need to become close to our parents because we feel that we have distanced ourselves from them.
The words our parents speak in our dreams are very important and they could carry an important message for us. Our subconscious can give us some clear guidance speaking through the words of our parents in our dreams.
This dream is often a reminder to begin applying the lessons we have learned from our parents.
Sometimes a dream about parents could be a sign of some imminent change that is about to happen in our life and are a sign that we need to embrace it and adapt to it as soon as possible because it will be highly beneficial for our life.
Dreams about our parents can have many different meanings. Dreaming about our parents is often a reflection of everyday events, and these dreams often reflect our thoughts and feelings about our parents.
In many cases when they feel some kind of resentment towards their parents, people tend to dream about them.
In these dreams they usually tell them the things they don’t feel comfortable telling them in reality, or they continue the fights and arguments that are happening in their wake state as well.
Sometimes we dream about our dead parents and in those cases, these dreams often indicate that we are still in grief for them and that we haven’t completely accepted the fact that they are gone.
We can also dream about them in situations, where some unresolved issues or unspoken words remained between us and these thoughts are still haunting us.
Sometimes we talk to them in our dreams about our feelings and that actually helps us to finish that chapter and finally let go of the pressure and the feelings we have.
Our parents often appear in our dreams during times when we need their advice and we feel lonely and insecure. We also tend to dream of our parents when we desire to feel safe.
