The meaning of files / records in dream | Dream Interpretation
A desire for, or fear of, order and consistency. It appears frequently when life is chaotic. This image also points to emotional stress; much has accumulated. Pay attention to how thick or thin the file folder is. It might also be a sign of a compulsive personality, similar to Admiral. Do you always have to keep everything in perfect order? Or are you unable to keep order in your life? It could be either a case of your ego (your unconscious) raising its head, or a justifiable symbolic expression of the feeling that either the state (as father symbol) or an institution is placing limitations on you.
