What does it mean when you dream about being on the right?

In addition to its directional meaning, being on the right can also mean being correct (e.g., to be on the right side of a situation). Being at the right hand of God also says one is in the righteous place of good instead of evil. The right in a dream can also mean to stand up for one’s “rights” or “to right” (rectify) a wrong.

Right

(dreams)
The right side of the brain is associated with fluid intelligence, nonverbal reasoning, and creativity. In your dream you may be concerned with direction or being right.
