Friend Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Friend Dream Symbol – First of all, dreams involving your friends are very common and can be interpreted many ways. They could symbolize emotions and fears you have about that person in the waking hours or they may also be your mind projecting parts of yourself onto an image of your friend so you have an easier time dealing with a problem.

In other words, your dream friend may represent your alter ego, or the part of yourself that you keep hidden in your waking life. Ask yourself, what is your friend doing in your dream that you may be repressing in life?

Dreaming about a friend is a very positive omen. If, of course, that friend meets misfortune in your dream, then you should warn them in real life so to watch out for such things. Friends are our greatest and most loyal supporters. They are not always who we think of as friends.

In fact, our best friends might be those who we wouldn’t normally associate with. Because of this you should be very careful with this particular dream, because it might mean something different than you would have originally thought. If you dream of a pleasant situation with one of your friends it is a sure sign that you should spend time with them soon.

Additional Friend Dream Interpretations

Friends in dreams can mean you are in for guests and fun times catching up. Dreaming of friends in general is a good omen for your future. Traveling with a friend can mean there may be a break in your friendship sometime in the future. You may be receiving good news and a gain of some sort soon when you dream of hugging and fun times with friends.

Lying to friends indicates you have an underlying hate or grievance with someone. When you recognize a friend, you may realize you have made a mistake. This may be something you need to fix straight away. Dreaming of being proud of a friend can mean you may get what you hoped to achieve. But, it ay tur out to be disappointing. Visiting a friend reminds you need to exercise patience while waiting to advance your career or to be promoted at work.

Negatively, dreaming of a friend can reflect your sadness or anger at someone or a situation. Dreaming of a friend you have not seen for a while can mean that person is ill or needs your help. But, if this person is calm in your dream, this signifies good news from someone in your waking life. Seeing a friend upset can mean turmoil and stress soon will soon cross your path.

A friend that turns into animal signifies that your enemies will successfully cause rifts between you and those close to you. A friend wearing red can mean there will soon be trouble in your extended family. Possibly among your relatives. Seeing a friend on top of a mountain can mean you feel you have to prove yourself to be right. Seeing friends at the bottom of a mountain indicates your neglect of family and friends. Are you too busy elsewhere?

Leaving a friend’s house can mean you may kiss and make up after an argument. Dreaming of shaking hands can mean you lose that friendship or you will lose an important relationship. Spending time with friends in a dream indicates this a time of good financial growth and you enjoy good health.

    Please help me in decoding this dream-
    I am at a new place- new people, new friends, new relatives. I even attend a marriage function. Then I see my father (who loves me very much both in dream n real), my aunt & my cousin- who almost caught some secret of mine in the dream, but i took care of.
    Then I see 6-7 friends with whom I spend lot of time, do lots of fun. One of them even has huge crush on me. Then all of a sudden because of something, which I don’t know, they start hating me. I try talking to them but they refuse. Then I also saw few distant relatives making fun of me and referring me as a negative character.

  19. Hi there,
    Thank you for giving me answers about this type of dream but I’m still not sure of how to interprete it…
    I just woke up crying ! :'( I wouldn’t stop. This is the first time it ever happened to me!
    About my dream: for some reason I was at uni (i was at uni 5 years ago) and I was late for my class. I walked in with my best friend (it was an animal looked like a dog and I could communicate with it) my teacher straight away pushed us out of the class cause someone was allergic to dogs. And by closing the door my friends neck got stuck in the door. I screamed open the door! And when it did I talked to my friend and asked if it was ok? But shaked its head to say no and collapsed then I threw water. It woke but then collapsed again so I screamed help. The teacher came out the genator too and I said call someone I don’t know a veterinary but nobody cared they wouldn’t care and I was trying to google veterinary as its life was slipping away. I screamed please help she’s my best friend! I woke up in shock bursting in tears as if I had really lost my best friend… N.b: I do not own a dog but my best friend does.
    How can I translate this dream? Please help. I’ve never felt so sad waking up and worried too…
