EXAMPLE DREAMSExample dream : Orphan children in a dream were symbols of the dreamer feeling unloved by her father and exhausted by illness. She had become ill with flu and had started having trouble breathing. Her father took her to the hospital but kept asking her if she was truly ill.
Example dream : Looking after orphans in a dream linked to the dreamer moving in with her boyfriend. She realised that in moving away from home she would not have the support of a close family. Having to look after orphans represented her need to deal with this loss of family support if she moved (she was very close to her family). So the orphan in the dream caught this feeling "I am beginning to realise how much I will miss my family if I move away. I will effectively become an orphan." After all if you never see a family its as if they do not exist.
Example dream : The dreamer had spoiled his relationship with a woman who had been very supportive (a mother figure). He had to carry on without this support. The dream captures this emotion "I have lost her help and support. She was a real mother figure to me. I feel like an orphan child now!"
