Dream Interpretation Confusion | Dream Meanings
Dreams in which body parts of family members are confused—for example your sister’s head on your father’s body—suggest that you may be having problems deciding which family member is the most important for you. Dreams in which a family member doesn’t arrive when expected or appears unexpectedly suggest that the relationship between you and that family member needs to be better understood so that trust can develop. Dreams in which family members are injured, distorted or suffering in some way may reflect your fear or anxiety for that person. Dreams of an incestuous relationship with a family member suggest that the dreamer has become over involved with that person; the dream has appeared to warn that if this over involvement continues, the consequences will be damaging to your development.
The personality of family members in your dreams may also be transformed. For example, parents who have been difficult in waking life may appear tolerant and loving in your dream. This may be an attempt by your dreaming mind to counter the negative consequences of their cold attitude towards you when you were a child. A negative dream of a partner when all seems well in waking life may be a warning that there is an underlying problem in your relationship with them. Examine the context of your partner’s misbehavior in the dream as your unconscious may have noticed a flaw in your relationship that you are unable or unwilling to recognize in waking life.
Remember, however, that the dream may relate to another negative area of your life; your partner may represent someone or something else important to you in your dream. See also Divorce dreams entry in RELATIONSHIPS.
If the main feature of your dream was an overall or general atmosphere of confusion, you are being warned to continue along your present lines, as any changes you are contemplating could prove awkward at this time; but if your dreamed confusion was purely personal, it predicts recovery of a long-lost hope.
To dream of a disturbance or Confusion presages loneliness and trouble. Keep to frequented paths.
