In a dream, I saw some kids being supervised by their parents. They were blowing giant bubbles by using two sticks joined together with a rope. The group made a lot of noise in the garden. Some neighbors in the area came to watch. In the dream, I felt strange, like being a voyeur. I felt like an intruder and didn’t want to join the group in their activity.
A group of people doing their own thing. Others may feel too alienated to join. This dream imagery maybe reflecting an incident in waking life. It could be a call to participate in social events and actively defuse the message that you are not sociable enough to participate in activities.

Dream of group activity
One of the dream interpretations after dreaming of group activity is that you may be lonely. If this loneliness had been bothering you during your day, then you may dream of it at night.
If you have dreamed of the same theme more than once, then this pattern of recurring dream means you should pay attention the message.
While it is normal to feel lonely sometimes, it is abnormal to feel lonely most of the time.
Sometimes, it is not the physical loneliness you feel. You might have felt another type of loneliness, which is the feeling that no one supports you, or nobody understand you. Physical loneliness may be due to the loss of a companion.
This is September 2021. The world has been battling Covid-19., ever since Dec. 2019. Social distancing and isolation measures have affected people from all cultures. Humans are social animals and social distancing to control interactions have exacted their toll on their mental health. If you have felt sad for more than two weeks because of social distancing, this may lead to a longer lasting depression. You might wish to seek help from a professional who is a counsellor, therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist.
If you are bound by physical constraints like illness, isolation and reduced mobility, you’ll miss group activity even more. Nursing a medical illness means you experience discomfort and fear. Fear induces your imagination to run wild. Fear can be the downfall without you understanding why you fear. Medical and mental illness are common causes of fear. For example, a patient with kidney disease fears death. That fear might make them desperate to get money to treat their disease and prolong their life. Mental illness may do the opposite, meaning instead of the dreamer desiring group activity, the person may have adverse reactions to group activity. A patient with schizophrenia may hear voices talking to them. They fear the voices, even as those voices have no physical presence to actually harm them. The existing mental illness induces fear. The inability to think clearly and believe in logic induces the patient to believe in absurd thoughts. Fear is a consequence. For this kind of dreamer who has fears of group activity, then the dream of seeing group activity would contain a different meaning for them. The symbolic meaning. May be that of a warning because group activity carries accompanying baggage of fear.
If your dream was about being in a scene where there was group activity, you may have two possibilities –
A) You were involved and busy in the group activity.
B) You felt un-involved and lonely as the group activity raged on. The root cause of this loneliness was that you did not connect with the crowd. For example, you may be sitting in a stadium watching a sports game but if you lost interest in the group activity, you would feel like you were apart from the crowd.
Dream of group activity can happen because it was triggered by nostalgia. If you miss someone who was in the group but has left, you might dream of the old group activity events.
In order to truly participate in a group activity, you need to focus on the activity. If you have been a recluse, hiding in the sanctuary of your home, you can try offering some time to a volunteer group that does social work for the mentally or physically challenged people.
A dream of a group activity that leaves you feeling excluded, can be a symbol of discord in your family. The family unit is one of the groups that are nearest to you. Other groups can come from your work environment, church group, hobby group and etc.
If you dream of a group activity, the group can be a disguised metaphor to refer to your family. After analysing your dream, if you think the group symbol is a stand-in for your family, then this dream was a message to focus attention on this problem. If you saw yourself as the person who was excluded from the group, you might like to think of ways to re-join your family group. What can you do to offer an olive branch and mend with your family group?
Likewise, if your dream analysis tells you that the dream imagery could be about your office group of some other group, think of the ways to make peace with the group.
You may be accustomed to doing group activity with someone close. If you have lost that person through any means, you may experience nostalgia and dream of being in a group activity.
Festivals, seasonal holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrated days will bring back memories of time shared with people in group activities. The days which are commemorated can trigger dreams of group activity.
If you’ve lost your job, you’ll miss the group activity of working in a group environment. If this is your context, then you have this for your dream analysis and interpretation. If you miss the group activity at work, you may want to consider searching for other types of group activity to share your interest and time. There are volunteer social work group activity, and hobby/ hobbies group activity.
Sometimes, you face the situations where you feel others do not understand your natural self, race, culture, language, religion, age, family background or other factors. You find many challenges and rejections in trying to assimilate into existing group activity. You’ll have to “find your tribe”.
If you live alone and have rooms to spare, consider renting them out. Housemates can be a private and confidential, or the occasional interaction with group activity. Even if the social interactions are only greetings, or sharing of communal living facilities.
On the other side of the coin, there are people who shun group activity:
Some of us have inherent, intrinsic traits of preferring to be loners, introverts and less social. They can’t change themselves overnight to love group activity. When they do join a group activity, they tend to be quiet and blend into the background.
The dreamer should also reflect on emotional and spiritual requirements. Material possessions provide comfort and some distraction but they are no substitute to fill the emptiness in the soul. There are several ways to satisfy emotional desires and spiritual nourishment. Seek fellowship in humans, appreciation in nature and fulfilment in belief,
Alternative dream meanings when you dream of group activity:
If you dreamed of doing group activity, how was your participation? Did you do well in the group? Or did you fare poorly in the group activity?
There are different meanings for these two different scenarios.
If you dreamed you did well in your group activity, it means you did well in group activities in real life. You are a team player who co-operates with fellow members.
If you dreamed you did badly in your group activity, it means you did badly in group activity of real waking life too. This dream’s message tells you to think about making changes to improve your performances in group activities. If you know about your lack of skills, then learn those skills.
If you dreamed of a group activity like playing chess, that means you’re required to think, plan and execute your strategy in real life.
