When you dream about a doctor, it can symbolise something in your life that needs to heal. Perhaps there is something going on in your waking hours physically, spiritually or mentally that needs time to recover.
Alternatively, you may need to care more about fixing or correcting something if you have been passive about a situation that’s actually quite important.
Dreaming about doctors can also represent your own intuition about your health. Is it time you went to a professional to talk about a niggling health concern you’ve had?
More generally, have you been neglecting your health lately? It could be a gentle reminder to take better care of yourself or your current behaviour might result in a visit to the doctor to undo all your bad habits and choices.
Doctors can indicate someone you trust in your waking life. Has this trust been broken or have they proved to you lately that they are the right person to confide in and rely on? Do you trust yourself?
Doctors are authoritative figures, so it’s possible the dream represents another authority figure in your life, especially if you have been spending a lot of time with them lately or have experienced some challenges associated with them.
If you were the doctor in the dream then you will be well respected in your life by friends, family and colleagues alike, more so if you were wearing a white coat in your dreamscape.
When a doctor performs surgery on you, it can mean you feel a lack of control over your own health. Another thought is that you will experience a big but necessary change in your life in order to escape danger.
If the surgery was on your head then you may need to change your way of thinking, your attitude or ideas.
A transplant is the suggestion of change- you may need to alter something in your personal life- however it’s important to remember that you may not be able to do this alone- it might be time to call on your friends and family to help you move forward.
Perhaps someone else is doing everything in their power to help you through something too. A nurse can also be linked to a plan of action- what you see as necessary to stay stable and get to the other side. This might be liaising with the right people, getting into appropriate habits or even getting into situations that support positive change. It’s possible you have found an answer to a problem and the nurse is symbolic of what you need to do to stay on track. A nurse might also represent your need to stay clear of something negative until it is resolved. At which point you might want to return to whatever it is once again...
