Psychological meaning: Carl Jung claimed that the dream symbol of a child is a motif for the forgotten things in our childhood. For example, your dream may be telling you that you’ve forgotten how to play or should take a more innocent, carefree attitude. The symbol of the child also represents possibilities. It paves the way for future changes in the personality. In addition, the child may represent the part of you that needs reassurance and security.

Child Dream Meaning

Mystical meaning: A recurrent theme in mythology is the ‘divine child’. This mystical figure is often a hero or a savior. For example, the child-hero Hercules strangled two threatening snakes and the baby Jesus became the Christ who saves humanity from damnation. These themes are common to many mythologies. The divine child is the symbol of the true self, it is both vulnerable and possessed of great transforming power. In your dream it may represent your divine self that is growing to its full spiritual potential.

    My dream is about my daughter who was targeted to be taken from me by people that came in a spaceship and no one believed me and for years. I tried to get her back and they continued telling me I will never see your child again and I cried for years.
