The meaning of Garbage in dream | Dream interpretation

The unconscious mind may be hinting to you that the time for “throwing out” unnecessary things is at hand.

The garbage in your dream could also represent those things from your past, or in your life today which are not worth keeping, or that are literally rubbish.

If you dream of seeing many piles of garbage then it is an omen to change your ways before you turn all your lovely things into garbage.

If you are disposing of garbage then it foretells that you will have to clean up someone’s reputation and the mess he or she has made of their lives.

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

Having too much mental clutter, or scattering attention in too many directions.

In a dump: Feeling literally “dumped on” by others or circumstances. Alternatively, being surrounded by scandal.

A desire for orderliness and organization that’s generated by having your sense of structure dismantled.

Tilings in your life of which you need to rid yourself.

Counsel from your subconscious that you figuratively need to socially, mentally, or physically clean up your act. What exactly needs to be thrown away so that you can grow and change?

A poor self-image that manifests in treating yourself like worthless garbage. Ecological concerns displaying themselves through your dream.

Garbage trucks represent personality types that tend to accumulate possessions to assert their security, instead of developing personal qualities.

Finding something valuable in: An alternative type of treasure dream (“one person’s trash is another’s treasure”). Also, an optimistic outlook.

Compost heaps represent the need to nurture and fertilize your ambitions.

A compost heap is also an emblem of taking a negative and finding a creative means of making it a positive.

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

Dreams in which you throw away garbage may be connected to a desire to rid yourself of emotional and physical waste. Try to work out what the dream is referring to and dispose of it. If, however, the dream garbage was being thrown out by friends or loved ones, then perhaps other people are doing your dirty work for you. There may also be a suggestion that you need help ridding yourself of something damaging.

If you throw something precious out in your dream, you are not appreciating someone close to you or are taking them for granted.

If you are covered in garbage, you may be afraid of some form of humiliation or feel emotionally burdened in waking life.

The presence of dirt in your dream will also refer to something distasteful in your waking life. Bear in mind, though, that such a dream may not be completely negative, as we use manure or fertilizer to encourage growth. The allusion may therefore be to some action that is disagreeable but will yield results. Excrement or feces in dreams has a different meaning, indicating that you are purging yourself of something or someone in waking life that is poisonous to you. A dream of pollution also refers to something that is damaging to you—emotionally and physically—if you do not avoid or dispose of it. Dreams of splashing through a puddle or being covered with soot may refer to mild irritations in waking life. A drain disposes of excess water and if it appears in your dream, it may suggest that you are feeling drained emotionally.

Garbage is generally synonymous of shady affairs and scandals; however, it can also prove to be a good omen.

If you do not feel disgust toward it you will have economic gains; but if it is stinking, you will experience negative moments with people around you.

If a woman dreams of garbage it is a warning against a humiliating breakup with her partner. On other occasions, garbage symbolizes all the things that you want to eliminate because it prevents you from progress: your character traits, attitudes, fears, memories... On the other hand, it represents that you have been appointed to a position that has nothing to do with you.

Some beliefs say that this dream portends that your wildest dreams will come true.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

The unconscious mind may be hinting to you that the time for “throwing out” unnecessary things is at hand. Letting go of clutter frees the mind and makes more room in the closet! The garbage in your dream could also represent those things from your past or in your life today that are not worth keeping or are literally rubbish. It has been said that “Cleanliness is next to Godliness,” and there is something to that. Removing “garbage” from the mind, spirit, and body is not only necessary, but it is also at times accomplished in our dreams.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To see heaps of garbage in your dreams, indicates thoughts of social scandal and unfavorable business of every character.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

1- Garbage in our dream creates a scenario where we are able to deal with those parts of our experience or our feelings which are like garbage, and need to be sorted in order to decide what is to be kept and what is to be rejected.

To be collecting garbage can indicate that we are making wrong assumptions.

2- Very often, garbage is the remains of food preparation. Often we are being alerted to what we need to do in order to remain healthv how we need to treat our bodies and how we need to create space in order to act correctly.

3- We may need to dispose of spiritual rubbish, and a dream about garbage can alert us that now is the time to do that.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of garbage reflect useless energy that can be recycled, like compost, into fertilizer for something new. This dream is suggesting that it is time for a change, that you consider releasing habits, plans, and ties that are no longer supportive to you, in order to make room for that which is. See Processing Dreams and Recycle. .

My Dream Interpretation | myjellybean

Desire for cleansing.

A need to discard internal refuse that is burdensome. Similar to Abortion. Much has accumulated and must be emptied: emotional garbage and everyday garbage. Suffering because of involvement with the environment (and yourself). You are making an important discovery: it is in the “garbage” that we find the gold of meaning; in the inconspicuous and rejected lies the chance for self-knowledge. As C. G. Jung has stated, in accepting the rejected shadow, we take the first step to individuation.

Garbage is the waste product of our daily lives, that which we consider no longer of value.

A buildup of garbage in a dream may indicate a buildup of things in your life that must be discarded and released.
