Dreaming of betrayal usually indicates that you feel played by someone or your trust was broken by the actions of some people.
Maybe you lost faith in some people because their actions proved to you that you can’t trust them.
This dream is a symbol of losing faith, mistrust, and negative emotions made by other people.
You might feel abandoned and lonely and you feel like you can’t rely on anyone.
Betrayal is something everyone is afraid of. No one would like to be betrayed and it is thought to be one of the worst sins.
You can’t build any relationship if it is not based on trust, and once that trust is broken you can’t give it another chance.
If you were betrayed by someone close to you then this dream is just your subconscious mind experiencing your feelings and thoughts.
But, if you didn’t have any situations and problems with betrayal, it may mean that you don’t trust people enough. You are afraid of getting hurt, so you don’t make close connections with others.
There are many reasons for dreaming of betrayal, so let’s see if there is an explanation for your dream here!
The most common dreams about betrayal
Dreaming of being betrayed
If you had a dream about being betrayed by someone from reality, by a person you trust and you love, it means that you are afraid of getting hurt and you don’t want to be honest with your feelings because you think someone could take advantage of you.
The symbolism of this dream is that you are not ready to commit to a relationship because you are scared that you will get hurt and used.
This dream is a product of your subconscious mind that is telling you to relax and stop worrying that much about getting hurt.
If you think that someone is going to betray you, then you can prevent being hurt by not believing or trusting that person anymore.
You don’t need to trust everyone, but you should feel free to trust people who are trustworthy and stop preventing yourself from having a normal relationship.
Dreaming of betraying someone
If you were the one who betrayed someone in your dream, it means that you are not honest with that person.
You either lie to them or you did something wrong or bad to them. The key to a normal relationship is open conversation and trust.
If you betrayed someone, then it is normal to feel regret and try to apologize to them.
You feel guilty and your conscious mind is telling you to confess that you did something wrong.
Also, this dream is a symbol of finding yourself non-worthy and you may think that you don’t deserve anyone because of what kind of person you are. But, you just need to be honest and stop pretending to be someone you are not.
Dreaming of being betrayed by best friend
If you had a dream about being betrayed by your closest friend, it can mean two things.
First, you can trust that person and you know they would never do that. It was just a dream and it has nothing to do with reality.
And second, you don’t trust them and you feel like they are doing something behind your back. You should talk to your friend and see if you have any reasons to doubt them.
Maybe you feel like you don’t deserve that friend and that you would let them betray you. If that is the case, you need to respect yourself more and build up your confidence. No one should be in a place to hurt you and use you.
Also, it could be that you did something to them and now you see this dream as their revenge. Maybe you are afraid that they would do the same thing you did to them.
Another meaning is that you were already hurt by this person and now you can’t trust them anymore.
Dreaming of betraying your best friend
If you were the one to betray your best friend in your dream, it means that you don’t find them worthy. You probably think that they don’t deserve your loyalty and you don’t care if they get hurt. That means you have a problem with being honest with your feelings and thoughts.
Another meaning is that you already did betray your friend but you don’t know how to confess it without losing your friend. Your subconscious mind is chasing you telling you to be honest and real. You should confess and move on.
In the end, maybe you are just worried if you are a good friend that person needs and you worry if you are not good enough. You shouldn’t doubt yourself and you should always be who you are.
Dreaming of being betrayed by your family
This dream is often related to your childhood and it has to do a lot with your parents. If you didn’t receive enough time, energy, and love from your family as a kid, this dream may be a reflection on the past and a reminder of how sad you were.
Also, this dream may suggest that you don’t trust your family and you can’t rely on them. You might have been betrayed by them in the past, and now you don’t want to commit to them.
This dream can be a symbol of disappointment and sorrow. You need your family to always be there for you, but you don’t see that happening. We can’t choose our family, but we can choose ourselves and the way we want to be and feel.
Dreaming of getting betrayed by a brother
This is a very symbolic dream and it doesn’t have to be literal. A brother in a dream is a symbol of complete trust and a person you can rely on.
Getting betrayed by a brother in your dream means that someone will stab you in your back when you don’t look. This doesn’t mean that it will be your brother, but it will hurt like it was your brother. You will feel a huge disappointment and you will probably need a lot of time to recover from that betrayal.
It is possible that it will be your family member or a close friend that will let you down and turn their back on you when you need them the most.
Dreaming of being betrayed by parents
This dream can also be correlated to your childhood and past. This dream reflects your weaknesses and is a symbol of deep problems you had as a young person.
It doesn’t have to mean that your parents will or have betrayed you, but it is connected to your sense of trust.
If you didn’t have much support when you were younger, then that is the reason why you dreamed of your parents betraying you.
Maybe you don’t have anyone to rely on and to brag to. You need a true friend and someone who will always be there for you.
Dreaming of seeing a betrayal
If you saw people betraying each other in your dream, it means that you will be disappointed by the actions of other people.
You will see something that will make you lose a little bit of hope for this humanity. You need to understand that not everyone is good and ready to do the right thing.
People betray each other daily and some of them find it normal to betray others. Some people don’t have guilt and they are perfectly fine with injustice.
Dreaming of betraying yourself
If you did something in your dream that disappointed you and it felt like you betrayed yourself, it could be that you won’t endure the thing you told yourself you have to. For example, if you decided to stop smoking, and you had this dream in which you lighted a cigarette, it means that in waking life you will betray yourself. Meaning, you are likely to light that cigarette.
This can be related to any aspect of your life and is a warning for you to think through your decisions and your will to do something.
The symbol behind the dream about betraying yourself is that you should have more faith in yourself and stop suspecting the worst. You need to be strong and to believe in your decisions.
Dreaming of getting betrayed by a partner
It doesn’t matter whether you are or not in a relationship.
This dream is a symbol of losing hope for finding true love and you wonder if you would ever find someone who will love you the way you deserve to be loved.
