Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally).

Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of brothers in dreams?

Many people refer to brothers as symbols of strong brotherly support. Perhaps that is a little untrue. The brother in dreams tends to represent the way in which we badger and probe and make people see things from our own point of view.

So brothers then can clearly be linked to a wish to get people to see our point of view. E.g.

"I really want to impress that inspector and get him to really see things from MY POINT OF VIEW"[Dream Dictionary - brother dream]

"Maybe I have been seeing things too much from my own perspective. I need to see things from my ex's point of view. How he acted is maybe quite understandable. He was maybe confused about what I wanted"[Dream dictionary - my brother and ex boyfriends brother]

"I see things from my teachers point of view. She had to give up the classes because its such a long way to come but I do miss them"[Dream symbol - brothers]

Brothers also tend to signify moment when you feel lost and want some help. E.g.

"My money problems are really getting out of control and I just need someone to really help me out and STICK UP for me"[Dream Dictionary - brother dream]

"This computer problem is getting me down. I wish I could get some HELP to get it sorted out." [Dream Dictionary - Brother in law dream]

"I know I have to STICK UP for them and help them"[Dream dictionary - brother and sister dream]

Brothers can also relate to the problems associated with helping someone. E.g.

"I think my attempts to BEFRIEND people didn't really work. Maybe I was being too pushy" [Dream Dictionary - brother dream]

Brothers tend to stick up for us but they also represent males and will maybe linked to very male emotions. They maybe represent moments when you show support but not in an openly emotional way. E.g.

"I know it was a difficult situation but I made a joke and he could see I was on HIS SIDE. That put him at ease" [Dream Dictionary - brother dream]

Brothers will help each other but they can also exclude you if you are not part of the group. So brothers can link to feelings linked to exclusion and being blocked out. E.g.

"She has helped me a great deal. But I have been having sexual fantasies about her. Perhaps they were innapropriate"[Dream Dictionary - intruding in boys bedroom]

Of course dreams about your brother may link to some pressing issue in your life involving them.

"My brother wants to interfere in the decision I have made."[Dream symbol - brother][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]
THE DREAM I was in a room with my younger brother and I had gold glitter all over my face in the form of a mask. And someone knocked the door; My younger brother opened the door and in came my older brother and he was with this other guy, don’t know who it is. My older brother looked at me and walked around the room for a little while. The other guy stayed outside. Then my older brother comes up to me and says “my little sister come here” and gives me a big hug. Then he looks at me as if he’s going to say good-bye and that he is not returning. I woke up after that feeling so warm but empty inside. It was not a nice feeling.

THE REALITY The dreamer did have an issue in her life. She was wanting to face someone from her past but her older brother is not happy about it. She has a strong feeling that he is going to interfere.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I feel that my brother wants to interfere in my own affairs. I can sense he is not happy about my decision. "

DREAM ANALYSIS Dreams can have a symbolic or non symbolic meaning. Its important to check outt first if there is some important issue involving your brother. In this case there was a pressing issue so the dream could easily be about that. The dreamer wanted to break up with her boyfriend but felt her brother would interfere to stop this.

In the dream the brother comes with a guy. Unknown men in dreams often symbolise male emotions. This matches reality in one sense that she does sense in her older brother a wish to interfere. That interference is the source of the dream. She senses pressure to act in a certain way. Brothers in dreams tend to symbolise brotherly actions and emotions. In this dream the elder brother maybe involved in this issue in that he is putting pressure on her. So his appearance in the dream is literal and not symbolic. Her little brother is maybe a symbol of her own stubborn desires to face someone from the past.

Symbolic Meanings
YOUNGER BROTHER : "The dreamer own stubborn course"
GUY : "a sense of pressure coming from her older brother"
