Dream meaning of ancestors

An ancestor in a dream can symbolize inherited traits. Personal qualities, traits, and characteristics can be traced to ancestors, such as having a grandmother’s eyes or an uncle’s laugh or a parent’s brains. People naturally wonder about the soil from which they spring.

An ancestor can symbolize tradition, holding onto the past and preserving it.

Ancestors can be symbolized as a tree. Sometimes these dreams will pair a tree with a location. For example, a man with French ancestry dreams about a beautiful oak tree standing tall and proud in the middle of a field in France, but he actually lives in America. It reflects his admiration for his French ancestry.

To dream about your ancestors suggest that you are acknowledging your inherited traits and tradition. You may be trying to hold on to the past and preserve it.

Ancestors help you relocate your place in the larger scheme of generations, advising you on your career, your partner choice, your obligation to family, even your role in the world. Ancestors may offer some very good advice.
