To dream of a bodyguard represents you or someone else that is actively shielding others from failure or emotional pain. A person or situation that is “getting in the way” or making itself an obstacle. It may also reflect behavior that is risking itself to ensure stability or a desired outcome. A bodyguard may reflect insecurity to act alone. It may also reflect confidence that you nothing can get in your way.
To dream that you are a bodyguard may represent your protective nature toward a person or situation. Making sure someone else never fails. Risking yourself to put someone or something else first at all times.
