A dream about attending a meeting points to things like feelings of anxiety or stress about a real-life situation that requires your attention or decision-making. But the interpretation can be more multifaceted than that.

It could also be a kind of a need for collaboration or teamwork in your waking life.

Alternatively, dreaming about organizing a meeting suggests you are taking control and initiative in a situation. It may indicate your leadership skills and your ability to bring people together for a common goal. The common themes among these possible variants may be thought of as a reflection of your interpersonal relationships and your role within a group or community.

A meeting is colorful and puzzling dream symbol to to really give you a single answer for. To really know for sure, I'd have to really dig deep into the dreamer's life and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of attending a meeting may symbolize the unconscious mind's attempt to reconcile disparate aspects of the self, a process Freud referred to as 'the work of the dream'.

Thinking a bit more creatively... This could represent an internal dialogue between the ego, superego, and id, reflecting a struggle for balance and harmony within the psyche. Conversely, dreaming of organizing a meeting may be an expression of the ego's desire for order and control, a manifestation of the Freudian concept of 'reality principle'. It could also suggest an underlying need to assert authority or to orchestrate events in waking life. Both of these dreams underscore the complex dynamics of the unconscious mind and its continuous endeavor to achieve psychic equilibrium.

Dreaming about attending a meeting can be a spiritual call to gather your inner resources or aspects of self, a divine invitation to introspection and self-discovery. It may symbolize a spiritual council, where your higher self, spirit guides, or divine entities convene to guide you. Conversely, dreaming about organizing a meeting signifies your spiritual leadership. It may indicate your soul's readiness to take charge, to harmonize the different aspects of your being, and to lead your life with purpose. The common themes among these dream variations are spiritual reminders of your innate wisdom, your ability to navigate life's complexities, and your potential to lead and inspire, not just others, but your own self.
