DREAM DICTIONARY - President :

A dream in which you dreamt of a president will probably have nothing to do with that real life person. Its meaning will probably link to "power politics", "decisions that you have to make" or "a sense of power". How do these phrases feature in your thoughts right now? Presidents tend to be linked to important decisions. They can show us trying to establish a principle. But in a wider sense they show us taking control of a situation and treating a decision very seriously.

Presidents can be symbolic of structures of power within your life and changes within them. For instance, if there has been a change in the power structure at work (maybe you have a new boss).

Presidents could link to power structures in other ways. Has someone just forgotten the hierachy and not shown due respect to his superiors? Has someone got to remember who the boss is?

Presidents can also symbolise moments when you realise the need to take decisive action. Perhaps noone is interested so you have to take charge? Do you realise that you need to take decisive action now? Do you realise that you have to concentrate on whats important - maybe you should consider spending time on what needs to be done rather than spending time on hobbies?

Presidents can also link to moments when we are trying to establish a principle. We maybe trying to find exactly the right way to do something. Then once established that will be copied in all other cases. Perhaps you have been thinking over the best way to do something.

Example dream : A president of a company linked to the dreamer job hunting and feeling powerless and resentful - feeling dependant on people with power (to give jobs).
Example dream : The dreamer had recently made a complaint against a neighbour for anti social behaviour and had been scared that this would provoke her. However, the dreamer had noticed that her behaviour had improved and now felt that she was in fact fearful of being evicted for anti social behaviour. So the president in the dream was symbolic of his belief that she would do as she was told and submit to the power of the authorities as she was scared of the consequences of an anti social behaviour order. This gave the dreamer a sense of power and belief that she feared the authorities who were responding to his complaint.
