Orphan Dream Interpretation and Meaning
Orphan Dreams May Leave You Feeling Abandoned
Another dream that can be interpreted in many different ways is the orphan dream. Not all meanings will apply to your dream, so think carefully while analyzing what you saw. General dreams of orphans usually indicate neglect, lack of protection or even feeling isolated and in despair. This can reflect your social comfort, or lack thereof.
To see an orphan while dreaming can mean that you fear abandonment, loneliness or rejection (or all three). You probably suffer from some sort of social anxiety, even if others don’t notice it, you feel it deeply. This dream can imply that you need to learn to be more self-sufficient and even more independent. You need to get over your fears and take life by the horns! Don’t be afraid to go after what you want out of life.
It would also be of benefit to evaluate your relationships if you are dreaming of orphans; do you feel a sense of belonging? If not, really try to think about how you can improve this.
To dream that you are caring for orphans means that you are truly touched by the suffering and unhappiness of others; you see yourself as an agent of change and one who is willing to help right the wrongs in this world. You are willing to help others even to the point of sacrificing your own personal enjoyment of life.
You could also be trying, in your subconscious, to atone for your actions while waking. To care for orphans in your dreams might be a way for you to “make up” for any wrongdoing you may have committed towards those you love. Of course, this atonement probably won’t satisfy those you’ve wronged, so make sure to follow through with something more concrete when you’ve awakened and analyzed what your dream is trying to tell you.
