Eating poop in your dreams is one of the most bizarre dream scenarios I’ve ever come across. It is something so hideous and hard to imagine, yet it is one of the very powerful dream symbols, which often deals with something that is not right, yet you keep doing it, lies, or learning from mistakes.
So, without further ado, what does it mean to dream about eating feces? These are 5 interpretations from old dream dictionaries.
The Symbolism of Poop in Dreams
Generally, poop is a very favorable dream symbol. For example, in Central Europe, it is believed that if you step on poop, you will be lucky and receive unexpected money. Many cultures, not just European ones, associate poop with money for some reason.
Some people believe that poop is associated with money because it is a product of something we have consumed. However, the connection between poop and money remains a mystery.
In terms of dreams, poop symbolizes money, wealth, and surprise. On the negative side, it means bad habits or bad intentions.
The Meaning of Eating Poop In Your Dreams
According to old dream dictionaries, eating your own poop in a dream represents your bad habits and how they ruin your health. It’s probably something you know isn’t good for you, but you do it anyway. You are used to it and cannot imagine life without it, even though you know how bad the consequences can be or how negatively it affects your life.
It can be unhealthy foods like deep-fried foods, sweets, fatty foods, alcohol, or anything you shouldn’t eat (e.g., if you’re diabetic or celiac and keep eating foods you should not eat.)
Eating poop in your dream is also believed to indicate your fascination with money, and all that glitters. You may constantly be borrowing money to buy expensive clothes or other things you wouldn’t normally be able to afford, which gets you into deeper trouble. You want to appear rich and financially secure on the outside, but the reality is different. This dream could then be interpreted as a warning signal.
Dreaming about eating your own poop also deals with lies and the bad things you say or think about others. You have a mouthful of poop, meaning all you say or think is impure.
Dreaming about a baby eating poop means lessons, learning from mistakes, and second chances.
Eating dog poop in a dream means fake friends or the presence of someone trying to trick you or use you for their own benefit. This person wants you to believe their lies and all they say. Dogs in dreams represent friendship and loyalty, so eating dog poop can indicate a loss of trust in a friendship or emotional detachment.
Finally, seeing someone eating poop in a dream indicates their bad intentions, and the fact that everything bad they said or did to you or anyone else will eventually come back to them like a boomerang.
