Why do I keep dreaming Iím back at school?

Many people as adults dream of being back at school and very often they are aware in the dream that they are actually too old to be there! So what does it mean?

Dreaming Lens:  Ask yourself how do you feel about being back in this time period?  Are you experiencing anxiety or nostalgia for days gone by?  Are you experiencing yourself as noticed or invisible; stuck or safe?  Are you with present-day friends, or your secondary/high school circle?

Personal Focus:  The primary symbolic meaning for this image is deeply connected to your own personal experience of this period in your life.  In a general sense, secondary/high school is where most of us learned life lessons of responsibility, sexual identity as well as where we built the foundation for the directions we would take as grownups.  However, the overall experience of this turbulent time varies from person to person and can range from fun and joyous to extremely painful.  When you dream of secondary school in a dream, your unconscious is expressing emotional issues (possibly unresolved) that have their root at this time in your history.

As a common dream, most people experience this related to performance anxiety.  Secondary/high school represents the first time as individuals that most people are faced with a level of responsibility that is most like what we deal with in the adult world.  When our current lives spark insecurity about our readiness to face life’s tests, we may express unconscious fears by returning unprepared to this time and suffer the humiliation of being lost, not knowing the schedule, not being ready for an exam, or even finding ourselves naked.

The lessons faced in adolescence were, for some, accompanied by mistakes being cleared up for us by parents or other authority figures.  As such, this dream image could indicate an unconscious wish to have the burden of adult responsibilities magically disappear as if someone else could handle them for us.


If the dream is uncomfortable, look to present stressors that may feel burdensome in the same way you felt as a teenager.  The pressure to perform at certain levels is a major theme of the secondary/high school experience.  This may be revealing issues of performance anxiety in your current life and often the fear of facing the expectations that others may have of you.  If you examine your current life for issues of this nature and you will be well on your way to understanding the personal meaning of this dream for you.
