A dream about a brother often signifies aspects of your relationship with him. What your brother means in your dream may be more nuanced.

If the interaction was positive, it suggests a strong bond and mutual respect. If it was negative, it may reflect unresolved issues or rivalry. Your brother could also represent a part of yourself, perhaps a part you're struggling with or trying to understand. This could be a masculine aspect, or a trait you associate with him. The specific activities and emotions in the dream provide further clues. For instance, arguing might indicate internal conflict, while a shared adventure could symbolize teamwork and mutual support in waking life.

Your brother is very deep dream experience to really clarify with certainty. To really know confidently, I would have to really dig deep into the dreamer's life and current life scenario.

Dreaming of one's brother, or interacting with him, can be a manifestation of the Freudian concept of the 'other'.

Dream concepts like your brother can be multilayered, however. This 'other' may represent an aspect of your own psyche that you project onto your brother, perhaps a trait you admire or despise. The nature of the interaction is crucial. A positive interaction may symbolize a harmonious integration of this trait into your self-concept, while a negative one may indicate a psychological conflict. If you dream of arguing with your brother, it could signify an internal struggle with this aspect of yourself. Conversely, a shared adventure might represent the successful collaboration of different parts of your psyche.0

Dreaming about your brother or interacting with him in a dream can be a spiritual message about your inner self. Your brother may symbolize a part of your soul that you are trying to connect with or understand. If the interaction is positive, it suggests a harmonious balance within your spirit. A negative interaction, however, may indicate a spiritual conflict or a part of your soul that needs healing. The specific activities in the dream can provide further spiritual insights. Arguing might symbolize a spiritual struggle, while a shared adventure could represent a journey of spiritual growth and unity. Remember, dreams are a window to your soul and a guide to your spiritual journey.
