Sheep Dream Meaning
(see also Lamb)
Psychological Meaning: Are you being a conformist? To dream of sheep may indicate that you are following a conventional way and falling in with what everyone expects of you. Perhaps you should try a less orthodox approach to your situation. Why keep following the flock? The opposite meaning is symbolised by the ram, which is an individualist. Similarly, to dream of a shepherd may represent the power of love that can unify divergent tendencies. This may apply to your world or the conflicts within yourself.
Mystical Meaning: Consider this quote from the Vedas: ‘Come up Lions and shake off the delusion that you are sheep. You are souls immortal, spirits free, blest and eternal. Ye are not matter; ye are not bodies; matter is your servant, not you the servant of matter.’ Also associated with the Christian ‘Lamb of God’ sheep are considered to be a lucky dream omen.
