Orphanage Dream Symbol


Orphanage – Dreaming about an orphanage is a negative omen with dangerous and frightening implications. This is a symbol of abandonment on a very large scale. You may be afraid of someone in your life abandoning you or doing wrong by others. Since babies are often a dream symbol of your own projects and aspirations, dreaming about an orphanage may also be a sign that you are abandoning a goal prematurely or wrongly, or that you have given up on a dream that you still ought to have.

Examine the circumstances and emotions around this dream symbol to understand its significance in your life better. For instance, if there is a car or other transportation device present in the dream, this indicates your ability to move toward the goals that you are tempted to abandon.

    I had a dream my parents just left me at a psych ward\orphanage but that was the best dream ever I don’t like living with my family and I have depression they don’t know and I’m always trying to get them to realize and I would LOVE not living with them they hurt me so much and make fun of my feelings and compare my problems to there’s

  2. I dream that I’m in an orphanage all the time (which is why I googled the meaning). It’s always rather happy and I’ve had similar dreams since being around 6/7 I think I just loved the idea of being in an orphanage or foster home and it’s just stuck with me, I’m not sure but it’s always something like the movie Annie or Tracy Beaker it’s rather strange!

  3. I had a dream in which orphans were all given a set amount of candles that they could burn to illuminate their rooms. The girl in my dream shared the smallest room, and left a candle burning for too long. The orphanage caught on fire, but didn’t burn down completely. What could this mean?

  4. I saw an orphanage in my dream yesterday. I want to call it a Children’s home rather than an orphanage. It had a name too. “Shishu Garden” ( meaning; Children’s garden”) In my dream, somebody had stolen all the babies we had in the home. Apparently, I was the owner of the home. I along with my people were searching for the babies.

  5. I saw an orphanage in dream. In that dream I saw I was opening a book and some of the pages have been teared fro the book. Then I saw a plate of food.

    Few days ago I saw a girl calling me to shave my beard when I was mingling with my friends. Girl is probably on the same age of me.

    I’m not married and don’t have a girl friend
