Usually when you see your mother as a dream symbol, you are not necessarily thinking about your mom, but just her attributes as a person. Mothers have an inalienable association in our minds with nurturing and comfort. When you see your mother in a dream, the meaning of dream may be as simple as you seeing those nurturing and comforting aspects of your mother in yourself. This interpretation provided in the dream dictionary is more tailored towards females because of the comforting nature that is usually associated with the female gender, but a man could just as easily be seeing themselves as a mother figure. Dreams with these specific dream interpretations are more likely to come up when you have taken on a caring role in your life. Perhaps you are ready to start a family, or just had a baby. Another reason this dream might have come up is if you had to take care of someone else's child for a bit, or maybe even a pet.
If you are having a conversation with your mother in a dream, then the dream interpretation of this might be that you are dealing with something that you cannot solve. Just because we advance to adulthood doesn't mean that the significance of our mothers is gone when we mature. This occurs because despite how strong our connections are with others, it is usually our mothers that know us best.
Combining that fact with the knowledge that they are older and wiser than us is usually all it takes to make us subconsciously believe that we need to work out problems that we can't solve with advice from our mothers. Regardless of your relationship to your mother, age is always a factor in how experienced someone is, and sometimes another more experienced perspective is all we need to make a tough decision. A dream like this might occur if you are planning on getting married soon, or even moving to a different state. If you are going through a huge decision that is tough to wrestle with might mean that your mother will be visiting you in your sleep later.
If you hear your mother calling your name in your dream, especially in a non-positive manner, this usually means that you are wrestling with feelings of neglect or irresponsibility on your own part.

It ought to be pretty easy to figure out if this is the reason your mother has visited you because it is probably regarding something that your mother would be ashamed of if she witnessed. Have you stolen from someone, perhaps lied about something very important? This could be your mind's way of letting you know that it is a problem that is still weighing on you. While seeing your mother in dreams usually means something important for you, whether this is good or bad can heavily depend on your recent behavior. This guide should have helped you realize the reason for her visit though.
