Dream Question 506:What does it mean if a person who you don’t know or ever seen calls your name in a dream?
At the first level, each living thing in a dream is a part of your mind. Men tend to go with an action part of the mind, while women tend to go with an emotional part of the psyche. If it is a person you don’t recognize, it is a part of your mind that you are not familiar with, as we all have parts of ourselves that we don’t know about very well.
If it is a man, it’s usually trying to get your attention to doing some action. If it is a woman, it usually is about how you’re dealing with something emotionally. If you are able to see the person, the characteristics of the person may be informative as to what archetype is being employed by the dream.
For example, a knight in shining armor would be the heroic masculine archetype. An older fatherly figure would probably be the wise old man archetype. Shadowy or aggressive people with bad intent would be the dreamer’s shadow which is important for the dreamer to fully know.
