To dream of your father represents your conscience, or your ability to make positive choices, or choose between right and wrong. He can also be your projection of him if you have issues with him that need to be dealt with.
Anything your father says in a dream will shed light on a problem you need to make a choice about. Will you stand up to fear, or not? Will you decide to tell the truth? Or will you choose to do the right thing?
If you father is angry or sad in a dream it represents your feelings or disappointment or frustration about how a situation turned out based on a choice you made. You made a wrong choice.
To argue or fight with your father represents an inner struggle in your waking life with moral choice, or standing up to negativity in your life.
If your father dies in a dream it represents moral decay. You have lost your ability to make positive choices, to stand up to problems, or are cold and uncaring in your decisions.
If you father is dead in real life and appears in your dream he is just a symbol for your conscience, unless you have issues with him from your past that you haven't dealt with.
Alternatively, your father in a dream may reflect a father figure or person that has authority over you such as a boss.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing his father talking to his friend. In real life he was debating whether or not to call that friend on the telephone. The man's father represented the choice about whether to call the friend or not.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of being unable to find her father. In real life she was felt unable to make the choice to confront people who were treating her poorly. The woman's missing father represented her awareness of how impossibility difficult it was to make the choice to stand up to people.
Example 3: A man dreamed of biting his nails and anxiously trying to avoid his father's criticism for it. In waking life he was very nervous about not upsetting his new boss. TOP
