Dreaming of growth & liberation

One night I dreamed that my daughter left home without saying good-bye. She was lost for at least two days. Then suddenly, she returned home. I asked her why she left. She said she wanted to transfer to a new school, but was afraid I wouldn’t approve. She ran away from home instead.

The latent meaning of the dream was that the child was growing up to become an independent and unique individual. Leaving home was a symbol of her growth and liberation.

The child-daughter grows up to become the adult-daughter.

I actually dreamed I opened up her school bag to see what was inside. There were a few books, a pencil case, a couple of bananas, some and candy. Then I woke up from my dream.
