What do dreams about mother mean?

If you are a woman, your mother or mother-in-law may be representing an aspect of yourself that you need to examine more closely.
  • If you are a man, your mother or mother-in-law may represent your anima, or the feminine aspects within you which are often repressed and need to be accepted and incorporated within as part of the process of individuation or becoming whole.
  • Meaning of Mother in a Dream

    Your mother in a dream may represent your mother herself or your relationship with her.
  • She may represent positive aspects of her that need to be incorporated or nurtured within you, or negative aspects within you that you need to release.
  • A dream about your mother may represent your natural "mothering" nature or the way you nurture and care for others.
  • She may be telling you that you need to nurture some aspect of yourself or take care of yourself better.
  • She may represent wisdom, authority or a controlling aspect of yourself.
  • She may suggest that you need to get more in touch with the mother aspect of yourself.
  • Talking to your mother in a dream

    May indicate you have a problem to solve or a decision to make and you are seeking advice from a wiser aspect of yourself.
  • You may have something that you need to talk to her about in waking life.
  • If you are a woman

    She may represent yourself as a mother figure or the woman you can potentially become.
  • If you see a mother in a dream, or dream about being a mother, it may be your unconscious telling you that you are pregnant or that the time is right for you to start a family of your own.
  • If you are a man

    She may represent your anima, or the feminine aspects within you.
  • She may represent your ideal woman or what you might be looking for in a spouse or partner.
  • Mother-in-law dream meaning

    Your dream interpretation of your mother-in-law will vary depending on your relationship with her. If you have a good relationship it will be positive and if you have difficult relationship it is likely to be negative and may be offering ways to improve it; or may be addressing an internal struggle (within yourself) and the relationship you have with her may hold the answer to resolving it.
  • Your mother-in-law may represent herself; or she may represent an aspect of yourself that you are projecting on to her – there may be something you don’t like about your mother-in-law that you, yourself, are guilty of, too.
  • Your mother-in-law may symbolize someone else who influences or controls your spouse or you.
  • Meaning of Mother or Mother-in-Law Dying

    To dream of your mother dying may represent a change in your relationship with her or your perspective of her. As you mature, your views of mother may change from seeing her as “mommy” to seeing her as a person separate from yourself. This change in perspective may result in a dream about “mommy” fading or dying away.
  • To dream of your mother-in-law dying may represent a change in your relationship with her or your perspective of her. As you get to know one another, you may go from seeing her as “his mother” to a friend or second mother. This change in perspective may result in a dream about your initial thoughts about her fading or dying away.
  • Mother or mother-in-law dying may symbolize a positive aspect of yourself that you are denying or neglecting which is dying within you, or a negative aspect of yourself that you are releasing.
  • Visitation from dead Mother or Mother-in-Law

    A dream about your mother or mother-in-law that has passed away may be any of the above suggested interpretations.
  • It may be a “visitation” dream – it may be that she has a message or advice she is trying to convey or she may just be letting you know there is no need to worry about her because she is OK on the other side.
  • It may be a result of you missing her and wishing she were still here with you, especially if you are still grieving her loss and think about her often while you are awake.

                  I dreamed about my deceased mother holding a baby boy, about 1 or 2 years old. My mother was smiling and the boy was staring at me. Bright white or clear light in the background

                            Nov. 20th woke up 5:25 As i was leaving her house mom said (dad was sitting next to her, at their kitchen table) "i feel bad, we are right here and we cant do any thing for her". I said ill be ok. I asked where she was. (in real life she is passed) She said she came back from some job she didnt like. Asked her if she was going back she said no. I started crying, hugged her...woke up. In dream we actually spoke. I hugged her like she was really still here.

                                                      I desperately was trying to contact my mum and dad to pick me and my children up from somewhere and no-one help me access a phone, remember their number. One female in the dream actively thwarted me by removing a phone I finally obtained and being nasty to me

                                                            My mother has been gone for almost 30 years and my dreams of her are so vivid. I always revert back to where we used to live and it’s like we’re carrying on a normal life in today’s time. Like she never died. It’s really hard dealing with.
