What might it mean when your mother tells you your father died in a dream?

Dream 527: Dropping your contrary boyfriend may make you more independent

A woman reported with horror that her mother told her in a dream that her father had died. She wondered what it could possibly mean. She thought it was probably about something else or implied something about a different situation but she didn’t know what.


The mother in the dream at the first level is her emotions. The father interject at the first level is an action part of her mind.

I think her subconscious is trying to shock her into the idea that she has to stand on her own two feet and cannot rely solely on the support she received in the past for pursuing her goals. It may be advising it, or it may be recognizing that that is the current situation, that she is in a situation where she has to be independent and make difficult decisions.

She then asked me if it could be advice to leave a difficult boyfriend.

I replied that if her parents had a strong relationship, at the second level of dream interpretation, it may be advising her that no matter how close the relationship is, she may have to let it go. The reason the dream is screaming then that she may want to leave him is because, according to the dream, she’s relying on him too much to make decisions for her. I believe the dream may have wanted her to be more independent, and not rely mainly on a man for guidance as she did with her father when she was younger.
