DREAM DICTIONARY - Blame :Fault and blame may appear in a dream when the dreamer has been thinking about why something happened. Sometimes we feel at fault when in fact nothing could be done. We do like to get things clearer in our minds and see if something bad could have been prevented.
Fault may also appear in dreams if something went wrong the day before. Perhaps you were waiting for too long? Perhaps you did not like the way people spoke to you? Either way the dream just captures your unhappiness at the way things went and a belief that something was wrong.

EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : In one dream a woman thinks that she is being blamed. In real life the dreamer had been thinking about a different woman who always felt that she was being blamed because she suffered from paranoia.
Example dream : The dreamer had recently fallen out with a friend who had lent money and not paid it back or even tried to explain it. The dreamer had not gone around telling people why he had fallen out with this friend so it may have seemed strange. The dream explores the feelings of guilt and blame linked to this falling out. The dream seems to capture this exact thought "It's not my fault. I lent him money and he has since not paid it back or tried to explain it. I do not like to hang around with such people. Lending money and not paying it back is stealing."
Example dream : In one dream everyone is blaming each other. In real life the dreamer was due to meet someone for the first time in years after a dispute. It seemed likely that this issue was now to be swept under the carpet but still it was still believed that they both blamed each other for the falling out.
Example dream : A dream where the dreamer gets blamed even though she did not do it linked to the dreamer feeling blamed for her grandfathers death even though he died of cancer. She felt unjustly blamed.
