About Nancy Wagaman, M.A.
Dream Symbol: teacher
Dreaming that someone is a teacher when they are not in real life can mean that, to you, they represent:
- An authority figure—someone or something in your real life who you allow to have some power over you in some way
- Someone whose opinions or advice you listen to
- Someone who has taught you something in real life, or whom you would like to do so
Dreaming that you are a teacher when you're not in real life could mean:
- You feel your insight would be valuable to others
- There is something specific you'd like to teach or explain a certain person or group
- You desire to feel respected or looked up to
- You're wondering what it would be like to be a teacher (and so you're trying it out in the dream state)
Using this Dream DictionaryTips to Understand Dream Meaning
Dream symbol meanings are different for each person. It's IMPORTANT to consider:
- Personal meaning - What the dream symbol means to you, what it reminds you of, how it makes you feel.
- Context - How the dream symbol appears in the dream. For example, in a dream about a bee - what was the bee doing, how and where it was doing it, and how did you feel about it?
- Look beyond the obvious - A dream is often about something other than its obvious meaning. Physical events in the dream commonly represent mental or emotional matters.
