Dream meaning of guardian

To dream of a guardian, denotes you will be treated with consideration by your friends.

For a young woman to dream that she is being unkindly dealt with by her guardian, foretells that she will have loss and trouble in the future.

Just as the powers of the Earth must be defended, so, by analogy, must all mythic, religious and spiritual wealth or power be protected against hostile forces or against possible intrusion by the unworthy. Hence the familiarity of the ‘keeper of the treasure’ in legends: almost invariably, this guardian is a griffin or dragon, or else a warrior endowed with superhuman powers. In temples, the idea of defence is implicit in the spatial organization and confirmed by the disposition of the walls, the doors and towers.

In the Far East, the guardians are usually fabulous monsters.

In Western countries, the same function may be performed by the figures inscribed on doorways. From the psychological point of view, guardians symbolize the forces gathered on the threshold of transition between different stages of evolution and spiritual progress or regression.

The ‘guardian of the threshold’ must be overcome before Man can enter into the mastery of a higher realm.

    Psychologically, guardians symbolize the forces that concentrate on the thresholds that separate the different stages of a person’s evolution.
    Hence it follows that, for many dream analysts, this figure represents the father who forces you to abide by the standards, but at the same time, watches over you, protecting you from the dangers.

    Dreaming of a guardian, therefore, reveals immaturity because you still need an authority to feel safe.
