To dream of a kingfisher represents feelings of freedom to assume authority. Using being older or having more authority as a reason to never have to ask for permission. Assuming the role of an expert that doesn’t have to listen to anyone else if they don’t want to. Awareness of yourself or someone else assuming a leadership role without question. Feelings about parents that assume power over their children without question. Speaking confidently to other people about your expertise.
Negatively, a kingfisher may reflect feelings about yourself or someone else that is arrogantly assuming power they don’t deserve. A refusal to be embarrassed by someone younger and smarter than you. Assuming authority in a situation because you are the oldest. Arrogantly never believing that you deserve to be treated as though you aren’t an expert or authority figure. Refusing to allow someone more passive than you with more expertise to lead. Never listening to anyone else tell you what to do because you believe you deserve to lead no matter what. A “total asshole” that never stops leading. Lying about expertise to maintain control. Parents or authority figures that have too much pride to ever admit being wrong. Issues with always needing to be the boss. Respecting yourself too much.
