People are not sure what dreams are and what they mean. Some believe that dreams could be a way to communicate with the spiritual world or even our subconscious. Others think dreams are just a product of random thoughts and happenings during the day. Whatever your opinion, we all can agree that dreams are interesting, sometimes bizarre, and they don’t always make sense.
A dream about eating glass is an unpleasant dream, as it is often fraught with anxiety as well as feelings of guilt. There is no objective meaning to the dream about eating glass, so to interpret your dream as accurately as possible, it is important to take a closer look at the symbols of your dream and remember how you felt when you woke up — what emotions this dream evoked in you, and also to what is happening in your waking life.
So, what does it mean to dream about eating glass and what does glass in dreams signify?
A dream about eating glass signifies feeling like you have no control over your life and are consumed by it. You may feel helpless, regretful, or angry. You may also feel overly emotional or disappointed in yourself.
For example, if you’re trying to lose weight, the dream could signify how hard it is for you to maintain your diet (you eat more than you should, or you can’t resist sweets, even if you decide not to eat them.) Maybe you do not see any weight loss, and you’re blaming yourself and stressing about it. This leads to disappointment in yourself, which is reflected in your dreams. You may be trying to eat healthily and exercise all day, but in the evening, the appetite for sweets will come, and you can’t resist. As soon as you have some sweets, you begin to regret it and hate yourself for being unable to resist. This anger is then reflected in your dream in the form of eating glass or chewing pieces of glass.
You said something you shouldn’t have said
When you dream of eating glass or having bits of glass in your mouth or throat, it could mean that you said something you shouldn’t have said. Perhaps you have revealed a secret or said something disrespectful or derogatory, and now you are afraid of the consequences. You see no hope that things will be settled or your words will be forgotten. It could also mean that you said something that was turned against you.
Eating glass in a dream is not a good omen. On the other hand, it is a good lesson that you should think before you talk or remember that words can sometimes cause pain.
You’re afraid to say something
Since glass symbolizes fragility, eating glass in dreams could indicate that you are afraid to say something in your real life. Either you are afraid to reveal something (e.g., your sexual orientation, pregnancy, or some problem you are going through), or you are afraid to speak because you expect negative reactions. You are fragile enough to take criticism or negative feedback.
When we don’t speak or call things the right names, everything is held inside like a pressure cooker. Similar to eating glass, these repressed thoughts or words can harm us and sometimes even cause mental health issues. If you have a mental illness and repeatedly dream about eating glass, talk to a therapist.
The symbolism of glass in a dream
Glass in a dream can symbolize any fragile or breakable object or situation, most often something tangible like your relationships or health. When you see glass in a dream, it means transparency, purity, and often even new beginnings or success if it is glittering glass. However, seeing broken glass means the opposite – non-transparency, anxiety, and physical and mental weakness.
The dream about glass in mouth (whether it’s eating, chewing, or swallowing) means that you are either not doing what you say (e.g., you don’t keep your promises) or you say something you shouldn’t. In short, it refers to words that should not have been said, used against you, or hurt you.
