The meaning of Famine in dream | Dream interpretation

To dream of a famine, foretells that your business will be unremunerative and sickness will prove a scourge. This dream is generally bad.

If you see your enemies perishing by famine, you will be successful in competition.

If dreams of famine should break in wild confusion over slumbers, tearing up all heads in anguish, filling every soul with care, hauling down Hope’s banners, somber with omens of misfortune and despair, your waking grief more poignant still must grow ere you quench ambition and en{??}y{envy??} overthrow.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Famine | Dream Interpretation

The keywords of this dream: Famine


Flood dreams are frightening, but they also suggest a release of energy or pent- up frustration that needs to be set free before progress can be made. To be in the middle of a flood indicates that you are being overwhelmed by these feelings, whilst watching a flood suggests you are watching yourself.

If you are not good at expressing yourself verbally, dreaming of a flood may help you come to terms with your anxieties and insecurities.

If you dream of being drowned, it suggests you are in danger of being overwhelmed by emotions you cannot handle or that you are fearful of allowing your emotions free expression. Drowning may also indicate an inability to handle stress and a feeling that you have no control. The natural disasters of flooding, tsunami and drought indicate great hardship for the dreamer, but they also offer hope. For example, if you dream that you are immersed in rising water or that your house is flooded, this indicates the emergence of a personal crisis. However, if adequate precautions are put in place, or you heed warning signs of impending disaster, it is possible to avert or overcome the disaster. Similarly, a dream in which you endure a drought portends misfortune, and scant reward for your effort, but the dreamer can take comfort that this difficult time will pass, leaving you wiser and better prepared for any future crises with which life may surprise you.

Tidal waves or tsunamis often represent a cascade of emotion or impending change in your life. It is not unusual for someone struggling with a tough situation, such as the loss of a job, illness in the family and so on, to dream of being threatened by a tidal wave. A tidal wave in this instance depicts the emotional devastation that occurs when situations change in unexpected, or unwanted, ways. Whether the wave represents emotion, change, or something or someone else, to you the implication is that you are in the thick of it now and you have little to gain by running away or denying it. Your best approach is to ride the wave, accept that you feel overwhelmed for a while, but know that this isn’t permanent as the storm will run its course and you’ll emerge wiser and stronger.

Famine and drought dreams can also indicate that you are emotionally drained in waking life.

If you are hungry in your dream, your needs or demands, physically, emotionally and mentally are not being met.Starvation dreams also indicate that something within yourself is not being given due attention; aspects of yourself are being impoverished and ignored. Perhaps your partner is draining you and you are feeling exhausted.

If scenes of poverty feature in your dream, this often indicates feelings of being inadequate, or negative emotions depriving you of your well-being. On the other hand, dreams about starvation and poverty may be hinting at your humanitarian qualities, and could be suggesting that you could do more for charity.... The Element Encyclopedia
