Grandmother (Grandma) – Meaning and Symbolism of a Dream

Dreams about grandmas usually don’t mean anything, especially if you have recently had an encounter with yours or someone else’s grandma, or if your grandma died. However, if none of those events happened recently, dreams of grandmas can be very powerful, representing circumstances and conditions that we can’t see but we usually feel them, at least subconsciously. A grandma is a frequent motif in dreams. Most of the time, it represents security, wisdom, consciousness or problem avoidance, so it usually stands for something positive.

  1. I just had a dream about my grandma who’s been in my life since i was a baby, she always took care of me right when i was born. I was living in Arizona and so was she, but i moved to Nevada around 2011 or 2012 then haven’t talked to her ever since then. She moved to California sometime in 2017, she would text and call me on different phone numbers but one day she stopped texting, so around the beginning of 2019 we stopped talking. Apparently she would always drink and she was living with different people in California saying she was homeless. But today I had a dream about her and I was worried about what it meant, like i said i haven’t talked to her or seen her in a minute, i’m just worried about her and hope she’s safe.
