The guard is an archetype whose job it is to protect. Guards can show up in a number of different settings, from the government to a prison, but their essence is the same. They keep danger and violence at bay. As a character aspect in a dream, any guard is the part of your own psyche that is there because of a sense of the danger that may befall you from the outside world. Conversely, a prison guard may indicate that there may be feelings of violence inside of you that must be contained.
If one sees himself guarded in a dream, it means complications in his life, business, security or health. Ifone is experiencing difficulties at that time, then his dream means relief and reversal of his condition for the better. Being guarded in a dream also may mean status, rank or peace for the guarded and difficulties for his guard.
