Most of us are not big fans of garbage, both in our waking lives and even when we’re dreaming. It typically smells foul, stinky, and full of disgusting things that are rotting.
Hence, it comes as no surprise that seeing garbage in your dream signifies something that is just as repulsive. Also, it is something that you may need to get rid of right away.
Usually, in dreams, garbage is connected to our feelings and emotions. This can be your old feelings for someone in your past who does not have any interest in you. It can also be feelings of worthlessness.
Fortunately, one of the purposes of our dreams is to guide us, as well as help us better understand the things that we are feeling and thinking. When you learn to acknowledge your real thoughts and emotions, it is then that you will be able to make significant changes that can improve your current situation.
If you have been dreaming of huge bags of trash, don’t despair. This may be a sign that you are now ready to begin making positive changes in your waking life.
HERE ARE SOME COMMON DREAM MEANINGS FOR GARBAGE AND TRASH:
We usually see garbage as something that has no value at all. Do you feel like you are not valued enough in your relationship or at work? Does it seem like you being treated poorly?
Does it seem like you are carrying around plenty of emotional garbage? Perhaps it is someone you know, such as a friend or family member? A lot of people suppress energy and feelings for a long time from past experiences, even when it is not worth holding on to these emotions. Make sure to carefully think about the context of your dream. Was this trash your own or someone else’s?
Pay close attention to the overall feeling you had during your dream of garbage. Upon seeing the trash, did you feel repulsed or disgusted by it? You may be bothered by something going on in your everyday waking like and you may not be ready or willing to face it yet.
One of the most common problems we have when discarding our trash in public spaces like roadsides, sidewalks, and even in the grass, is litter. A dream involving litter may mean that there is someone not properly handling their responsibilities.
