Dreams that feature your ancestors in some way indicate the web of cultural and family influences from which your personality has arisen.
If a particular ancestor is highlighted, then you need to explore your personal associations with that person. For example, your great-aunt could have been renowned for her psychic abilities, so a dream about her might represent that intuitive tendency in you. Family scenes in your dream may represent feelings of security and unity, or a desire for this in your waking life. The appearance of your whole family together in a dream can indicate that you are yearning for the security and togetherness of childhood and home. On the other hand, if you dream that you see your family but are not present among them or are ignored by them, perhaps you feel emotionally distant from them at present. The appearance or mention of your family name in dreamland calls attention to your heritage or family situation.
If family planning is a feature of your dream, this suggests the need to take responsibility for your future. A family room suggests congeniality. Members of the extended family (such as cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews) usually appear in a dream as an aspect of yourself relevant to the person you dreamed about. For example, if your cousin is shy in waking life, his appearance in a dream may refer to the inhibited part of yourself.
To dream of a family tree may indicate your true spiritual heritage, providing you with a record of your origins and your place in the overall scheme of things; alternatively, if you believe in reincarnation, particularly genetic reincarnation, it may represent your own past lives.
If you are finding it difficult to analyze the meaning of your dream, it may be that your unconscious has cast a feminine or masculine archetype in the role of the relation. To determine if this is the case, ask yourself if your dream uncle has more in common with the archetypal wise old man than your father’s brother, or if your dream niece has more in common with the archetypal amazon or huntress....

Although dreams in which you write and send an email can have a similar interpretation to those when you write and send a letter, the important difference here is urgency. Sending an email may suggest that you need to make a fast decision in waking life. Deleting an email indicates that you need to think things through more carefully. Hitting the delete button may suggest that you want to remove an uncomfortable person or situation from your life.
If an email, fax or text message appears in your dream this may be a message from your dreaming mind to attend to some communication as soon as possible. Such dreams represent your desire to move on speedily with a current project.
Alternatively electronic communication or texts can also express your desire to go on the record and publicly state your intentions. As always pay attention to the content of your message. See also MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY.... The Element Encyclopedia
