Dreaming of a lamb, in Freudian terms, might represent the id - the primitive, instinctual part of the mind.

Likewise — It's a symbol of inherent innocence and the unspoiled, suggesting a longing for simplicity and unadulterated joy. If you're holding or feeding a lamb, it could signify the ego's attempt to control or satisfy the id. This nurturing act may reflect a desire to manage your primal instincts and channel them into something productive. It could also indicate a latent paternal or maternal instinct, a subconscious yearning to care for something vulnerable. This dream may be an invitation to explore these aspects of your psyche further.
