Teacher

A teacher in a dream is part archetype and part character aspect.

The teacher is the one with the knowledge, and to dream of one is to be tapping into the part of you that knows.

If the teacher is someone known to you, add the element of that person’s personal qualities to your interpretation.

The less you know of the teacher in a dream, the more you may be experiencing wisdom at an archetypal level. No matter how the teacher appears, consider that there may be something for you to learn. Learning occurs by accumulating small amounts of data that build upon each other. Teachers know what piece of information needs to be added next in order for learning to take place.

A figure of authority, the teacher is the one person at school who knows what the lesson plan is. Teachers have both the questions and the answers. Not only do they control what happens in the classroom, but they also know why things are ordered in a particular way. Each of our teachers presents us with the specific information needed to master a particular level of our functioning. Any teacher in a dream represents the part of you that understands this concept of step-by-step mastery and provides the mental environment in which learning occurs, or is blocked. There is great patience built into this process, even though many of your teachers in life may have lacked this quality. When a teacher appears in your dream, examine the person as a character aspect of yourself.

The teacher’s behavior toward you in the dream and your resulting feelings will offer insight as to how well your inner guidance system is operating and to what degree you are showing yourself patience with the pace of your growth.

A kindly teacher will result in a very different interpretation from one who is abusive or frightening.

Teacher

A spiritual teacher usually appears either in dreams or in person when the individual is ready to progress. There is a saying in the hindu religion, ‘when the chela (pupil) is ready, the teacher will come.’ Often that teacher will not appear as a wise old man or woman, but as a person appropriate to the level of our understanding. Consult the entries for education, school and authority figures in people, as well as the information on animus, anima and wise old man in archetypes in the introduction.

Material aspects: For many people, a teacher is the first figure of authority they meet outside the family. That person has a profound effect on the child and the teacher is often dreamt about in later years. Teachers can also generate conflict if their expressed views are very different to those learnt by the child at home. This may be something that has to be resolved through dreams in later years.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Teacher

The meaning of this dream depends on your own experiences with teachers or teaching and, of course, the circumstances in your dream.

The dream could be addressing your issues with authority and approval. Also, you may have a need for guidance and new learning. See Also: School

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Teacher

The figure of the teacher is very important. It represents the values of knowledge, experience, and wisdom. This dream, however, can have many nuances. For example, if you are a strict school teacher, inclined to punish students, it is a sign that you lack security. The cause may be from a latent inferiority complex that is balanced out by a controlling and dictatorial attitude. In most cases, having a dream of this kind does not speak well of your maturity.

If the teacher is a serious, formal, scholarly person, it means that you are at a formative stage of intellectual development.

If the teacher inspires respect and admiration (a father figure), the dream expresses emotional maturity and stability. (See GRANDPARENTS, ACADEMY, AUTHORITY, LIBRARY, and HERMIT)

The Curious Dreamer’s Dream Dictionary | Nancy Wagaman

Teacher

One who shows the way. All beings are teachers, how to or not to do something. Pay attention to inner or higher teacher in order to make life simpler. You are awakened to insight by own receptivity; although all people are teachers, and a few are especially influential along your path, remember to be your own guru.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

Teacher

Teaching is the art of communicating knowledge, experience, skill, and wisdom to another. Teaching, or offering instruction of any kind, can manifest through parental guidance, business apprenticeship, or by inspired instruction in ethics or kindness.

If this archetype appears in your dreams, it can suggest that others seek you out for the richness of your experience or that you need to seek out someone or something to teach you the ropes. The shadow teacher manifests as a desire to manipulate or abuse those you are instructing, and to be more concerned with recognition than with imparting knowledge.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Teacher

If you dream of a teacher, tutor or lecturer you know or don’t know but who treats you kindly and with respect, it may mean that you are in need of guidance, advice or knowledge. Sometimes the subject with which the teacher in your dream is associated may be a clue as to why they have entered your slumber. Teachers are authority figures that have power over children so your dreaming mind may also have summoned a teacher into your dream to represent your boss or even yourself, if you are in charge of others.

If you dreamed of a teacher who was an overbearing bully, is this referring to aspects of yourself or someone you know?

Teachers

Universal Landscape: The steps toward mastery.

Dreaming Lens: Who was the teacher in your dream? Was this a real teacher from your life, or an unknown character? How did you feel about this teacher? What class were you taking? Was the teacher out of the context of a classroom? Were you the teacher?

Personal Focus: Learning occurs by accumulating small increments of data that build upon each other. This results in the eventual ability to understand a theory or concept. A teacher in a dream is a Character Aspect of the dreamer. It represents the part of your personality that is aware of your current level of knowledge in some area of life. Teachers know what piece of information needs to be added next in order for learning to take place.

A figure of authority, the teacher is the one person at school who knows what the lesson plan is. They have both the questions and the answers. They not only control what happens in the classroom, but they also know why things are ordered in a particular way. Each of our teachers presented us with the specific information needed to master a particular level of our functioning. As we mastered one grade level, we moved on to new lessons and new teachers. While this ideal may not have been the actual schoolroom experience for most people, the principle is the same. Any teacher in a dream represents the part of you that understands this concept of step-by-step mastery and provides the mental environment in which learning and advancement occurs, or when it is blocked.

There is great patience built into this process, even though many of your teachers in life may have lacked this quality. When a teacher appears in your dream, examine him or her as a Character Aspect of yourself. Their behavior toward you in the dream and your resulting feelings will offer you insight as to how well your inner guidance system is operating and to what degree you are showing yourself patience with the pace of your growth. A kindly teacher will result in a very different interpretation from one who is abusive.

If the teacher in your dream was one from your waking life, how you feel about him or her is the interpretation itself. A positive role model will have very different meaning than your hated nemesis. If the teacher is unknown to you, then you must look to other elements in the dream to inform your investigation. Are you receptive to the lessons that life is serving up at the time of your dream, or are you resisting? Will you pass your examinations and move up to the next grade level, or be left back to repeat what you have not yet learned?... teachers dream meaning
