It may indicate a desire to strengthen these bonds or a need for their support in your waking life.

Alternatively, if friends or relatives are visiting you, it suggests you are in a position to offer help or guidance.

Dreaming of visiting kin or comrades may be thought of as a manifestation of your unconscious yearning for emotional nourishment and validation, a reflection of the Freudian concept of the 'ego ideal'.

Some additional thoughts: Conversely, if these individuals are visiting you, it may symbolize your subconscious acknowledgement of your own capacity to provide emotional succor. It could also be a projection of latent aspects of your own psyche, embodied in these familiar figures. Essentially, these dreams underscore the intricate interplay between the individual and the collective, the 'I' and the 'Other', in the theater of the subconscious.
