To dream of a pacifier represents feelings about being coddled or treated like you are too little to listen to. Feelings about yourself or someone else not being allowed to speak for themselves because someone feels that they are bigger than you.
Negatively, a pacifier may reflect feelings about being treated like you are childish without any second thoughts. Feeling patronized or overlooked. Feeling that people disrespect you with patronizing you or assuming you are not smart enough to listen to. Feelings about being treated as though you are too immature to be important.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing a baby with a pacifier in it’s mouth. In waking life he was aware of himself avoiding a very childish older man who believed that communicating with him through dangerous means in secret was a professional way to deal with a problem. He also believed that the childish older man didn’t have an intelligent understanding of what was really happening in a situation so he chose to ignore him and patronize him with sarcasm.
