Dreaming of Your Mom

I am in my childhood home with my current boyfriend. We are in my mom's bed. We hear her come home and we jump up and quickly make the bed. Leaving the room before she can walk in.

Have you ever had a dream like this? Here I am a grown women living in my own house but I'm still afraid of being caught making out with my boyfriend by my mom. What does it mean if you dream about your mom?

The mother symbol in dreams can mean a variety of things. A lot depends on your own relationship and history with your mother so there can be positive or negative aspects to your dream.

Mother as the Nurturer: Your mother gave you life and so can be a symbol of Mother Earth, the life-source for us all. In this way, she can represent a caring, nurturing symbol in your dreams.

Mother as Controller: As much as your mother nurtured you, she was also in total control of your life when you were young. And, dependent on your relationship with her, well into your later years. If you see your mother like this in your dream it could mean that you are feeling controlled by something in general, and you want to break free and rebel.

Mother as Authority: Similar to controller, you may have had to answer to your mother when you were young to questions such as, "Where were you? Who were you with? You can't go out with that much makeup on!" Maybe you are feeling guilty about something or that you have to justify something in your waking life when you dream of your mother like that.

In my own dreams, my mother has appeared as all of these symbols. In this particular dream, however, I see her as an authority. Maybe I am feeling her judging my relationship or I am just feeling guilty and that I have to hide something in my waking life.

Dreaming About a Party

I dreamt I was hosting a Christmas Party at my house. I invited m ex-boyfriend and his children but they avoided me all night. Then my dream switched to a different scenario where they didn't come at all. I spent the party feeling anxious and wondering why. I thought he would at least text if he wasn't coming. Did something happen to him? Or was he just not interested?

Symbolism of a House

I have written quite a few blog posts about the house symbolism in dreams - Dreaming of a House, a Basement and Hell, Dreaming of a House Surrounded by Water, Dreaming of a House. Basically, a house is a symbol of yourself. Different rooms represent different areas of your psyche.

Symbolism of a Party

A party is a celebration. It indicates that life is good! Having it in your house means you might have the need to celebrate yourself.

However, if you are not enjoying yourself at the party, it might indicate that you have doubts about your social situation and life in general.

Having a party at your house is essentially inviting people into your psyche, your very personal space. A party represents the social aspects of your personality.

What Does My Dream Mean?

So knowing what the party theme symbolizes, I think that in my dream,  I was inviting my ex to have a look at my new life - a life I am proud of and want to celebrate. But although I tried in two different scenarios, he just wasn't interested. In the second scene I was even trying to make excuses for him that may or may not be legitimate. However, I take this dream s a very clear sign to move on with my life.
