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.

Either way right usually has positive connotations. You may be sending messages to yourself that you are on a right path or doing the right thing.
