DREAM ANALYSIS : dream interpretation of bosses?

Bosses appear in dreams quite a lot. In some cases a boss will appear in a dream as a link to some recent little issue at work connected with pay and conditions. These issues will revolve around your working relationship with your boss. E.g.

"I feel that I should get back to work even though my health has not improved. The boss depends on me and I feel I owe him some loyalty"[Dream interpretation - boss dream][The full dream which this is based on features at the bottom of this page complete with dream interpretation]

"My supervisor gives me plenty of compliments but I would rather have a pay rise"[Dream interpretation - supervisor gives a 'payday' candy bar dream]

"My boss has made major changes to my job. Its been divided up. I wonder what it will mean for me"[Dream Dictionary - boss dream]

"I know I hate my job - getting promoted was probably the worse thing that could have happened to me"[Dream interpretation - former boss dream]

"I really hate my job but I need to stay on my best behavior or I will lose it. I have to keep my frustrations under control" [Dream dictionary - anger mixed with fear at boss]

"Maybe I shouldn't try to PUSH MY BOSS too much. That girl was fired yesterday. The same could happen to me and I so want to save up to go to New Zealand with my boyfriend."[Dream Dictionary - running from boss dream]

If you are unemployed it may link to your thoughts about the general work market or efforts to get a job. E.g.

"People get the best jobs for no good reason. Many people simply get jobs due to connections. Yet I am stuck being unemployed"[Dream dictionary - man being sacked dream]

"I better plan ahead since my current job is only a temporary contract. Soon I will be unemployed."[Dream Dictionary - boss dream]

"I need to get a sense of momentum going towards my job searching. If I can build up some confidence in myself and some sense of momentum then it helps promote me. I have got to sound confident about skills that I have not got any proven ability in"[Dream Dictionary - ex boss who had confidence in the dreamer]

Sometimes a boss maybe represents your need to take command of a situation. It shows that you need to take control and take an issue seriously. E.g.

"I have to get up early tomorrow even though it is Sunday. I must get up to help my sister move home. She is depending on me"[Dream dictionary - boss dream]

"Its a big day for me today having to move home. I will have to be in total charge of everything"[Dream Dictionary - boss dream]

"My new business seems to be doing badly."[Dream interpretation - sacked by boss dream]

"I have several sick relatives who depend on me. I feel like I am having to run around and make everyone's life comfortable. Its really very difficult"[Dream symbol - hotel manager dream]

Similarly a boss may appear in a dream as a need to be disciplined in the face of health problems. E.g.

"I have go to go and get my health checked out. If I leave the problems any longer they may get out of control"[Dream interpretation - workers and boss dream]

"My wife is so ill. I have got to take control of this or otherwise she will get even worse and may even die"[Dream interpretation - supervisor dream]

In some cases the dream may link to your thoughts about a former job and how life has altered since leaving. E.g.

"My fitness has gone downhill. I miss my old job as it kept me very fit"[Dream symbol - ex boss dream]

In some cases the dream will be about the state of the company you work for and how that affects you. E.g.

"I know that there are no new orders coming in. Pretty soon the company may close down and I may lose my job"[Dream interpretation - boss dream]
DREAM TIP : Try to think of dream symbols as words. Think of the bosses in dreams as the phrase "a serious attitude" . Then try to write down a few quotes which capture all major issues and in particular things that took place the day before. Think of quotes like "I have got some important things to do tomorrow. I need to get prepared", or "my two brothers do not seem to be getting on right now", or "I was watching TV last night and it was really making me think". Then read through the various quotes and see where the phrase "a serious attitude" seems to have a any relevance. If there is a strong connection then it maybe that the dreams symbolic meaning is linked directly to that issue.
THE DREAM - I am upstairs and my boss is there. I am looking at the ceiling and there are pictures of soldiers there. I am cellotaping the pictures. It makes them into a type of well printed poster. But I do not use the cellotape on the footballers posters.

THE REALITY The day of the dream I was due to go back to work after an illness. He had to decide if he should be a team player or take more time off to fully recover.

DREAM ANALYSIS When you have to decide on a certain course of action you need to be able to justify it. So already the dreamer was trying to justify why he was not ready to return to work just yet. Maybe he would emphasize the tough and resilient struggle he was having to face - rather similar to the life of a soldier. The dreamer was sticking things up - maybe symbolizing the story which he would decide to STICK to.

The dreamer was anticipating the criticism his decision would receive - that he was not a team player. Football is a symbol of togetherness - you support a team. The boss was a keen football supporter and emphasized such qualities in people who worked for him.

So the dream was anticipating the types of criticism which would be coming His way for not returning.
