A dream including your dad is likely a comment on your relationship with him and how it is holding you back in some area of your life now.
Try to think how your father relates to recent problems. Do you wish that you had more support from your father? Does your father have a low opinion of you? Does your father never listen to you? Anything like that may cause a dream.
A father in one’s dream is associated with control in life. Obviously we trust our father and it can suggest that you will be “protected” in life. Try to think about your own life and how you control others. Rather than representing an aspect of you, a “father” featured in one’s dream represent’s how you handle your relationships. For example, your father represents your power or authority in your relationships.
Dreams only focus on problems in your life. Although you may have had a wonderful relationship, there are still often traits or attitudes you copied that you could do without.
Most, if not all, of the time our dreams pertaining to our parents (regardless if he’s our dad or our mom) depicts a symbol of what it literally means or happening in real life, in our family, or in your own family
To dream of your dad dying is not a warning about his death. Rather it asks you to let some negative aspect of yourself die so that a more positive one can find expression. The negative aspect is connected with your dad. You either copied or developed it as a result of your relationship with him.
Fathers can also be very symbolic in a dream. They may link to your own need to be more sensible.
This is also a perfect time for you to assess the relationship that you currently have with your father. May it be healthy or not, you might want to pay him a visit? Have a little chat, a dinner, or watch a game during late nights as you might not know, he is longing to see his siblings and wants to reminisce the good old times you had with them.
It does not matter if your dad is already dead or you have not seen him in many years. It is the effect you are carrying today that is the target of the dream.
Hitting your father in your dream means you need to work out your relationship with him that requires a greater closeness with him. And you are feeling to be neglected, or he is not listening to every word you say and offends you, your feelings, and your ego tremendously. If it is the other way around, then your emotional connection is lacking.
Male energy is affected by your relationship with your dad and gives you confidence, belief in yourself, creativity, individuality, various spiritual gifts and more.
Your father is drunk, foolish, and incapable means that you are being freed from emotional repression while an unexpected help is about to come if your father is in wakefulness or is ill in your dream.
The dream can be about any of these.
If you see your father marry another then this can suggest that someone is not who they are on the surface. To dream of seeing your father marry someone (not your mother) can suggest a positive path in a career will need to be reached in life. If you see your father be homosexual then this is associated with a predicament in life – it is time to make a choice.
When we look at what a father should represent it should be: safety, happiness, richness and support. In addition, a father can be cold hearted. To see your father die in your dream is associated with a specific “warning” of a male that may try to cross you. To dream that you are locked in your room or your father is violent towards you can suggest that someone at work has control over you. Think about your relationships and how much control others have. If you dream that you kill your father in a dream this can be associated with feeling worried about a situation in life. It will not actually mean that you are thinking of killing him in real life – it is symbolic.
