Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

1- There may be a need to reject a feeling, emotion, belief or concept which could be troublesome in some way.

A risk has been taken which has not worked, and we now need to put ourselves back to the way we were. We have internalised a new way of thinking or of being which, on further consideration, needs to be rejected.

2- The ability to look clearly at what we have undertaken to do or to be in our lives should be utilised. Decisions should be made which will get rid of what is no longer needed.

3- A spiritual set-back means we must abort a previously held concept.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of an abortion are about the elimination or interruption of a new relationship, idea, project or a literal pregnancy. Your subconscious mind may be telling you that just because you may be going through a challenge, don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.

If there is sorrow or fear connected to this dream, then take heart in knowing that which is real can never die because the soul lives on forever.

Pregnancy is a time of waiting and an abortion is an enforced ending of that time.

The modern phrase ‘termination of pregnancy’ is much closer to the spiritual implications of a dream about an abortion. Generally we must give up a cherished project or idea that has not yet come to full maturity in favour of something else, which ultimately is more important.

The cancellation of a new beginning; see “baby”

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

A fetus is a symbol for an idea, project, new direction, or creative impulse that has the potential to be born into form, but is still in gestation. An abortion is a choice to eradicate that possibility in order to make room for something new. This is a topic that has great charge in our world, so how you interpret this in a dream should reflect your personal viewpoint on the subject. However, from a purely symbolic perspective, the nature of an abortion relates to choosing to eliminate a course of action that you are not prepared to take responsibility for.

(See Fetus.)

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

An abortion may symbolize the pre-mature death of a new thing in your life or the actual act of aborting an unborn child

Dreams about abortion, miscarriages and still birth are likely to leave you feeling traumatized on waking, whether you are pregnant or not. And if you were expecting a baby such a dream is likely to be a nightmare.

If this is the case, your dream was simply playing out your natural feelings of anxiety.

However, most dreams about abortion, miscarriage and still birth aren’t to be interpreted literally, as they refer to a concept you may have been mulling over, or an idea that is not realizing its potential or is not supported by your confidence or desire. There may be a need to reject a feeling, emotion, belief or concept which could be problematic in waking life. Decisions need to be taken which will help you get rid of what is no longer wanted in waking life.

How did you feel about the abortion in your dream? If you were distressed, perhaps someone or something is trying to prevent you from succeeding.

If you were relieved, your unconscious may be urging you to change direction or change your mind. Perhaps the concept is too demanding or the idea is flawed in some way. On the other hand, the dream may also have referred to something or someone about which you feel guilty. Dreams that focus on miscarriage may have the same interpretation but they may also refer to a miscarriage of justice, especially if you felt anger in your dream. Is someone in waking life taking the credit you deserve? Still birth dreams are in some ways more devastating and sad than dreams about miscarriage, as the baby has been brought to full term with the only element missing being the spark of life. In dreams, a still born baby may represent a talent you have allowed to die, or a relationship that has died due to neglect.... The Element Encyclopedia
