appetite

The meaning of Appetite in dream | Dream interpretation


If you were aware of hunger, or your appetite was small, a medical checkup is suggested.

A large appetite, in a dream, refers to money and is a warning to handle it with respect or your finances could become chaotic.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

This dream could take place when you have gone to bed while still being hungry. However, dreams that refer to appetite may reflect a need for more love and affection, as well as the need to express emotions. In any case, dreaming that you have an appetite is evidence of a desire to live and an important stream of energy.

Having a lot of appetite is a sign of growing apart from family and friends. Not having it presupposes the arrival of bad news.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

1- When an appetite is particularly noticeable in a dream it usually represents a desire which is unfulfilled. This will not necessarily be a physical desire, but could be emotional or spiritual.

2- To be hungry or thirsty in a dream can indicate lust and sexual desire.

3- This signifies a lust for life and a spiritual yearning.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of an appetite symbolize that you have a zest. Consider what it is you are hungry for: validation, love, support, stimulation, or recognition, etc.

Strangest Dream Explanations | Dream Explanations - Anonymous

It is not a good sign when you appear to be hungry in your dream; it is Nature’s warning of some health trouble. Mere feasting is also a bad sign, but refers to money matters.

Mystic Dream Book | Internet Archive - Anonymous

To dream of having no appetitie suggests feelings of depression.

If you dream of having a big appetite, you may feel unappreciated for something. It can also mean you’re not getting what you need from an important real life relationship.

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

(Sated; Saturation; To eat one’s fill) In a dream, to eat one’s fill means fidgety or restlessness. Ifone sees himself satiated with food and could not eat any more in a dream, it means changing of his condition, losing rank, losing business, or his death. This interpretation is applicable unless one finds in his dream extra space to fill with food, then the dream means that his lot in this world will equal the size of that remaining space. Eating to one’s fill in a dream also represents working for one’s livelihood or recovering extra money. Some interpreters convey that hunger in a dream is better than satiation, while to drink extra water in a dream is better than thirst.

ADVERSITY

To dream that you are in the clutches of adversity, denotes that you will have failures and continued bad prospects.

To see others in adversity, portends gloomy surroundings, and the illness of some one will produce grave fears of the successful working of plans.

The old dream books give this as a sign of coming prosperity. This definition is untrue. There are two forces at work in man, one from within and the other from without. They are from two distinct spheres; the animal mind influenced by the personal world of carnal appetites, and the spiritual mind from the realm of universal Brotherhood, present antagonistic motives on the dream consciousness.

If these two forces were in harmony, the spirit or mental picture from the dream mind would find a literal fulfilment in the life of the dreamer.

The pleasurable sensations of the body cause the spirit anguish.

The selfish enrichment of the body impoverishes the spirit influence upon the Soul.

The trials of adversity often cause the spirit to rejoice and the flesh to weep.

If the cry of the grieved spirit is left on the dream mind it may indicate to the dreamer worldly advancement, but it is hardly the theory of the occult forces, which have contributed to the contents of this book. ... Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation

For a woman, it signals entrance into that society for which she has long entertained the most ardent desire.

HUSBAND

Depicts how you see the relationship with your husband; your relationship with your sexuality; sexual and emotional desire and pleasure; how you relate to intimacy in body, mind and spirit; habits of relationship developed with one’s father.

Example: ‘My recurring dream—some disaster is happen­ing. I try to contact the police or my husband. Can never contact either. I try ringing 999 again and again and can feel terror, and sometimes dreadful anger or complete panic. I cry, I scream and shout and never get through! Recently I have stopped trying to contact my husband. I managed once to reach him but he said he was too busy and I would have to deal with it myself. I woke in a furious temper with him and kicked him while he was still asleep’ (Mrs GS).

The husband here depicts Mrs S’s feelings of not being able to get through’ to her man. This is a common female dream theme, possibly arising from the husband not daring to express emotion or meet his panner with his own feelings.

For Mrs S this is an emergency. Although the dream dramatises it, there is still real frustration, anger, and a break in marital communica­tions.

Example: There were three of us. My husband, a male friend and 1, all nding small white enamel bikes. My husband proceeded slowly, first, with his back to us. Then my friend followed. Suddenly my friend ahead of me turned and gazed fully at me. He gave a glonous smile which lit up the whole of his face. I felt a great sense of well-being surge through me’ (Joan B).

The triangle: the example shows typical flow of feeling towards another male.

The other male here depicts

Joan’s desire to be attractive to other men. This is a danger signal unless one fully acknowledges ihe impulse.

Example: ‘I was with my husband and our three children. About 2 or 3 yards to our right stood my husband’s first wife —she died about a year before I first met him. I remember feeling she no longer minded me being with him, so I put my arms around him from the back, and felt more secure and comfortable with him’ (Mrs NS).

The first wife: the dreamer is now feeling easier about her husband’s first relationship.

The first wife represents her sense of competing for her husband’s affections, even though his ‘first woman’ was dead.

Example: ‘My dead husband came into my bedroom and got into bed with me to make love to me. I was not afraid. But owing to his sexual appetites during my married life with him I was horrified, and resisted him with all my might. On wak­ing I felt weak and exhausted.

The last time he came to me I responded to him and he never came back again. This hap­pened three times.

The last time I don’t think it was a dream. I was not asleep. I think it was his ghost’ (GL). Dead hus­band: in any experience of an apparently psychic nature, we must always remember the unconscious is a great dramatist. It can create the drama of a dream in moments. In doing so it makes our inner feelings into apparently real people and ob­jects outside us. While asleep we lightly dismiss this amazing process as a dream’. When it happens while our eyes are open or we are near waking, for some reason we call it a ghost or psychic event. Yet the dream process is obviously capable of creating total body sensations, emotions, full visual impres­sions, vocalisation—what else is a dream? On the other hand, the dream process is not dealing in pointless imaginations. Many women tend to believe they have little sexual drive, so it is easier for GL to see her drive in the form of her husband. But of course, her husband may also depict how she felt about sex in connection with his ‘sexual appetites’.

It is a general rule, however, that our dream process will dramatise into a past life, or a psychic’ experience, emotions linked with trauma or sexual drive which we find difficult to meet in the present.

Example: ‘I dreamt many times I lost my husband, such as not being able to find the car park where he was waiting, and seeing him go off in the distance. I wake in a panic to find him next to me in bed. These dreams persisted, and then he died quite suddenly. He was perfectly healthy at the time of the dreams and I wonder if it was a premonition of me really losing him’ (Mrs AD). Cannot find husband: many middle aged women dream of ‘losing’ their husband while out with him, perhaps shopping, or walking in a town somewhere. Sometimes the dream ponrays him actually killed. Mrs AD wonders if her dream was a premonition.

It is more likely a form of practising the loss, so it does not come as such a shock.

The greatest shocks occur when we have never even considered the event—such as a young child losing its mother, an event it has never practised, not even in fantasy, so has no inbuilt shock absorbers. As most of us know, men tend to die before women, and this information is in the mind of middle-aged married women. Mrs AD may have uncon­sciously observed slight changes in her husband’s body and behaviour, and therefore readied herself.

Other woman’s husband: one’s own husband, feelings about that man, desire for a non-committed relationship with less responsibility. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

PENIS

For a man the penis represents more than simply his sexual appetite. It depicts the whole drive of life through his glandular system which develops the body type he has, pre­disposes his body towards male sexual characteristics; brings a cenain creative explosiveness to his personality, creates urges towards fatherhood and loving his woman, with con­nected desires to supply the needs of family if he is emotion­ally healthy.

The positive aspect of the penis/masculinity is for him to demand his woman meets his maleness, his canng aggression, his sexual desire, with her own fiery energy and strength. In general, direct reference to sexual feelings, fears, or problems. As these can be quite complex several examples are given below.

Example: ‘So for the third time I held the woman and made love.

The woman’s vagina was like a flower, I don’t mean to look at, but in physical sensation. My penis felt like it was penetrating petals of flesh and touching with great plea­sure a central receptive area I was left with the feeling of being able to make love again and again without any negative effects. It was a very positive and healthy feeling’ (John T). John is feeling confident about his sexual drive. Although a powerful drive, subtle feelings and fears have an intense influ­ence not only on the pleasure of sex, but also the response of the physical organs.

The relationship with the penis and sex act in one s dream shows what fears, hurts or attitudes are influencing the sexual flow. See castration.

In a woman’s dream, one’s relationship with, desire for, a mate; relationship with one’s own male self—ambition, work capability, aggression, intellect; depicts the relationship with, genital sexuality with, one’s panner. As with Sally in the next example, the events in the dream define the problem or rela­tionship. Example: ‘My lover Terry, myself and another woman are all on our bed.

The other woman seemed very sure of herself and kissed Terry in a very intimate way, he doing the same to her as I lay very near to both of them. Then Terry stuck his bottom in the air and staned to lick my chest and breast. I found myself licking around the penis, felt I was under some kind of pressure from both the other two to do so but didn’t feel too shattered as I did it with love for Terry, but I had a bitter taste in my mouth’ (Sally P). In talking about this dream Sally said she often struggled with what she wanted and what her panner wanted in sex. She might go along with his needs, but not find it palatable. Even if she did do it with some love, it might have a bad taste in her mouth*.

Example: T felt as if I were as one with Terry and I realised he was trying to make a journey into his mother s vagina, as his penis. Her vagina looked like a long dark tunnel and was threatening to him. I said, “You haven’t given your mother satisfaction and you say you will not.” Then he was really smashed up in body. Withdrawing into a garden with a high green hedge. I took a leaf from the hedge and began to pull it apan with my hands. Terry said, “Look what you are doing, teasing me.” I felt withdrawal wasn’t the way and staned to follow him, walking alongside the hedge. I said, “It feels like you are strangling me, so why don’t you do it and kill me?” (We have been going through a lot of sexual withdrawal, Terry saying his sexuality was his to do with as he wanted.)(Sally P). This second dream of Sally’s is a shrewd summing up of Terry’s sexual fears. In fact Terry suffered a great deal of anxi­ety about sex, and later uncovered the son of fear and desire to avoid giving his mother satisfaction in becoming a full blooded man shown in the dream. Our unconscious is a very capable psychologist, and while Terry in Sally’s dream repre­sents her insights regarding him—and must not be seen as a statement of fact about Terry—such insights are often enor­mously useful in dealing with relationship difficulties.

Example: ‘Was in a house with my wife. Outside the door was something which wanted to come into her—an invisible being. We were frightened and it said “Do not be afraid, I want you to put your penis in your wife and wait for me to activate you. In that way you will form a body for me.” I woke and realised the dream was moving me to parenthood. Al­ready having three children I realised this would mean an­other 20 years of responsibility. Nevertheless my wife and I made love. Two weeks later I dreamt my wife was pregnant with a son. In fact nine months later she bore a son’ (Nigel I). In this interesting dream sequence the penis is Nigel’s drive to be a father. See castrate; bed; knob; pole; reptiles; sausage; examples in flower and tunnel. ...

PLATE

Example: ‘I am at a wedding at which we are being served a celebratory chicken lunch. Whilst my back is turned for a moment one of the other guests on the table (who is female but whom I do not know) removed my plate and sub­stitutes it with a plate of food which doesn’t contain chicken. When I challenge this, I am told that there is no more. At this I rather petulantly decide to leave the wedding’ (Brian Y). Brian uses a plate of food to represent the good things he feels are rightfully his in life, but his negative emotions in a rela­tionship with a female rob him of this.

If food on plate: what one has a sense of ownership about; what one has received or hopes to receive from others, or from one’s own efforts, what you have created and now face. Communal plate: what is available to you but you may have to compete for or share—in work, relationship, life. Empty plate: one’s needs, appetites; receptivity; perhaps status, as in the past only the rich had plates. Idioms: handed to one on a plate; on one’s plate. See food. ...

PLATE

1- A plate can be simple or ornate. In dreams the interpretation will depend on this fact.

A simple plate will indicate a need for simplicity within our lives, whereas a more ornate one may suggest the need for celebration.

If we are holding the plate, we are aware of what we have received from other people.

If someone else is giving us the plate they are offering us something which belongs to them, but which we can now share.

2- The plate as a container is an important image.

If it is more bowl-shaped, it will represent what belongs to the feminine; if flat it will suggest some kind of group ownership.

An empty plate signifies one’s self-involved needs and appetites, whereas a communal plate highlights what there is to share.

The pattern and colour of the plate may be important (see Pattern in Shapes and Colour).

3- Formerly, plates were often only owned by the rich. Spiritually, to own a plate suggests that we have achieved a certain level of awareness.... Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary

Among the Greeks, lettuce was used to reflect the fragile nature of life, parts of which can be lost or taken away. On the dream plane, this may equate to losing your pep.

Astrologically, this is a lunar food, and as such may be an alternative moon emblem.

The green color of lettuce and its consistency give it some correlations with money.

For example, if something is nibbling up all the lettuce in your dream, perhaps you feel that someone or something is likewise eating up your cash on the material plane.

If the lettuce is being eaten in the dream, this reveals a decrease in sexual appetite.... The Language of Dreams

APPLE

The apple is related to sex; it symbolizes pleasure and sensuality. It’s the forbidden fruit, the sin that Adam and Eve committed in paradise. In oneiric terms, it reveals a desire to enjoy earthly pleasures.

If it is tasty, it indicates emotional satisfaction; if it is green, difficulties; if it is rotten, frustrations. From a Freudian point of view, eating an apple is synonymous with sexual appetite. The apple, however, also represents knowledge and freedom of choice. Just what Adam and Eve obtained when they left behind their innocence.

Especially if they are red, dreaming of apples is a good omen.

If they are ripe and sweet, you will be rewarded; if they are sour, you may suffer losses because of your own foolishness. Apples lying on the ground predict the dishonesty of your friends. Finally, if they are rotten, all your efforts will be in vain.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

FEAST

It reflects your emotional need to give yourself a banquet. Your appetite can be both sexual and nutrition-related. You must find such vital imbalance that seeks to be satisfied. On the other hand, you may be too lenient with yourself, or you just want to gobble all material goods.

It is important to be aware of your own desires’ limits.

If you enjoy it during the dream, all is good. If, however, you feel sick or you reject the feast you will experience disappointment.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

FRUIT

Fruits often reveal a desire or appetite, whether emotional, sensual, economic, or spiritual. In dreams, they predict abundance, prosperity, and earthly pleasures.

If the fruit was too green or too sour it will take you a while to enjoy such prosperity; if it has worms or is rotten, it seems that you are on the wrong path because the dream announces that those pleasures will be reached when you can no longer enjoy them.

Like flowers, each fruit has its specific oneiric interpretation. For example, grapes indicate prosperity; watermelon, fertility; plums, immortality, etc. Picking ripe fruit is a happy omen of wealth and goods of all kinds.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
