Have you recently experienced a dream where your sister played a part, no matter how big or small?
Well, that dream definitely has a meaning, my friend… although it might not be the meaning that you might expect.
Dreams about siblings are often a reflection of ourselves – something we’re missing, our sibling has, and we want.
Depending on whether you are male or female, the dream might point you in the direction of your emotional or nurturing self.
What Does it Mean When You Dream About Your Sister?
The context of what is happening between you and your sister in the dream is vital for correctly interpreting its symbolism and meaning.
Different actions will point towards different meanings, so a dream “about your sister,” without any context, is actually rather impossible to decipher.
Let’s take a deeper dive into this dream meaning in terms of different situations, shall we?
Spiritual Meaning of Seeing My Sister in a Dream
In some cases, a dream about your sister is indicative of your relationship; more specifically, something that’s missing from it.
Maybe you haven’t spent enough time together lately, or you feel ‘out of the loop’ with what’s going on in her life?
It might also mean a kind of overprotectiveness on your part, warranted or otherwise. Perhaps you get a sense that she’s in a bad spot but are unsure of how to tell and protect her.
Dreaming my Sister Died:
As a proud big sister, the mere thought of a dream where my “lil sis” dies fills me with absolute dread, terror, and horror. I couldn’t imagine a world without my younger-yet-taller sibling.
Experiencing this dream for yourself could be a sign that you need to focus a little more on that relationship, or that you’re at the risk of losing it. Life is short and very precious, so you shouldn’t waste time on petty grudges and fallouts.
Perhaps it’s time for the two of you to have a little chat about what might be going wrong.
Dreaming my Sister is Sleeping with My Partner:
This is definitely a dream that’ll make you want to wake up and start throwing hands, but I urge you to wait a minute.
Your sister is not personally responsible for the things that are happening in YOUR dreams.
Instead, the act of betrayal is more likely to be surrounding YOU. Have you betrayed someone? Your sister? Your own morals?
Dreaming of my Sister When We Don’t Talk:
The meaning of this dream is almost obvious: it’s time that you resolve your issues and rebuild a relationship.
Again, depending on how the dream plays out, it could also point in the direction of guilt on your side, maybe about the way that things ended between the two of you.
The good news is that you don’t need to not talk forever. It can be fixed at any time with a little patience and understanding.
This does need to happen on both sides, though. It’s also important to remember that these disagreements are often complex.
One person needs to make the first move, right?
Spiritual Meaning of Seeing my Sister in a Dream: 7 Signs
Dreams about sisters are often indicative of personal, nurturing, and emotional connections, both with yourself and with others. Maybe you need to love yourself more or give yourself a little more forgiveness.
Your sister could also act as a shining or guiding life in your dream, especially if you don’t actually have a sister or your sister has passed over into the other life.
1) Sibling Rivalry (You’re Female)
Is your sister younger than you? If yes, dreaming about her could be representative of sibling rivalry between the two of you. This is more so the case when a woman dreams about her sister than a man but can cross over from time to time.
Sibling rivalry is normal, but it’s important to keep control of it and not let it get out of control. You both have different qualities specific to you.
You are on a level playing field, without one being better than the other.
2) Your Vulnerable Side (You’re Male)
If you are male, dreaming about a younger sister, the dream is likely indicative of a nurturing, vulnerable, or emotional situation with you.
There’s a softness or vulnerability in your sibling that you wish to have, or an approach to emotional issues that you don’t have.
Are you and your sibling similar or different? My sister and I are like chalk and cheese in every way imaginable – appearance, hair color, eye color, emotional reactions, interests and hobbies, everything.
If you are complete opposites, a dream about your sister could relate to:
- Something about her that you wish you had;
- Understood better;
- Or felt a connection to.
It’s a good idea to remember something, though: if you are polar opposites, you have an interesting, helpful, and almost complete set of skills between you. Your strengths could be her weaknesses and vice versa.
4) Exposing Your Flaws/Facing Yourself
You should pay attention to the specific details of your dream, not just the fact that your sister is in it.
For example, if your sister is chasing you in a dream, she could be pointing out traits that she has, you don’t, and you don’t want to acknowledge.
On the other hand, if she is physically assaulting you in the dream, your sister is finding the most vulnerable, anxiety-inducing, hardest-to-find parts of yourself – and then pointing them out.
It’s not her actually pointing it out, of course; your subconscious is using your relative as a way to get the message across in a way that you’ll (eventually) understand.
5) Concern and Care
Have you experienced a dream where your sister is in a car crash, you save her from a car crash, or you crash your car into hers? All of these dreams might seem similar, but they have slightly different meanings.
Two cars colliding is quite an obvious sign that your personalities are colliding with each other. They have very different opinions to you, and it can cause friction.
Alternatively, saving your sister from a car crash is a sign that you care about her, and perhaps are even concerned about her.
This is definitely the case if you watch the car crash in action.
You must bear in mind that your sister in a dream is sometimes a mirror reflection of yourself, so that’s something you’ll need to work out.
6) You’ve Got Backup
When your sister invades your sleeping life as well as your waking life, regardless of how frustrating it is, she definitely has your back.
She’s watching over you, (and occasionally interfering in your life) even when you’re in another dimension – the dream realm.
Now, that’s some serious backup! To me, that’s a sign that you should make the bold move or step you’ve been thinking about. You can be bold and brave when you’ve got support and assistance.
7) The Importance of Femininity or Female Bonds
The angels, your female friends, your mother, your sisters… Female bonds are vital. It doesn’t just take a village to raise a child; sometimes it takes a village to create a nurturing and loving environment.
Dreaming of a sister, especially when you don’t have a sister in your waking life, symbolizes a need for connection and emotional attachments which are missing from your life.
Before you leave, read the meaning of a child dying in a dream.
The meaning of sister-based dreams is complex and highly dependent on the scenario within the dream. As you’ve seen, dreams about your sister being pregnant often result in different spiritual meanings than those of your sister being in a car crash.
Take a deep breath, write down as much of the dream as you can remember, and take your time. Eventually, the meaning will come to you. It’s a message meant directly for you, after all.
