Parents or guardians usually symbolize intellectual relations and conflicts with the outside world. This dream represents the world of the commandments and prohibitions, because parents are those who restrains and hinders freedom and subversion of instincts. If the father appears in severe attitude it means a guilt complex or the imminence of discussions with our superiors. If in a dream we mourn his death the guilt is even greater. If we dream him with a benevolent, loving expression, it can reveal a great need for protection and affection, or it can show that we have good relations with our superiors. If in adulthood we dream of the father too often it’s an indication that something is wrong in our psyche and we would do well if we consult with the psychoanalytic.
