Are you a clean or a messy person? Who cleans your home – do you do it for yourself, or you hire professional help because you do not have enough time and you do not like to do it?
What is your attitude toward cleaning in general, because it can determine the meaning of a dream about cleaning?
In any case, cleaning in a general sense does appear as a motive in dreams, not in some great form, but it does – most commonly, this dream suggests that you will be pleased in reality, you will probably get a pleasant reward in the upcoming days.
It is apparent that cleaning is the broad term – you can clean, scrub, sweep, collect, etc… there are so many tasks involved in this chore that many of us hate.
Here, we want to speak of one specific type of cleaning that appears in a dream – sweeping floors.
One more thing must be said right away – sweeping the floor in a general symbolism is related to cleaning all those things inside of you (inside of a home, as we know that your house, home in a dream world is the representation of your life or you for that matter) and that do not serve you in any way. You need to sweep them outside of your home, and you are the one who can do it the best way.
Depending on all aspects of a dream, you can sweep your home or your mind, or you can sweep your work environment, or maybe a love relation, whatever makes your “space” crowded.
After that, you will have a clear space that you can fill with all those things that do serve you.
Meaning and Symbolism
The first version of a dream where you are sweeping the floor suggests that you will have some expected guests shortly. You will be in a rush with your daily responsibilities, which is why you will be scared and in doubt do you have everything prepared, just as you have planned.
Those expected guests love you, and you love them, respect them a lot, and you will try to host him the best you are able. In an alternate meaning, you are expecting something important to happen in your life, and therefore you are in a rush to prepare everything.
If you see others sweeping a floor in a dream, in that case, such a dream shows that you are attempting to throw away responsibility to others, finding that it is much easier to do it than do it yourself.
On some level, you are quite aware that you are making yourself a bad favor that will cost you later on.
Such a dream, if it is repetitive or very intense, shows that you are often acting in this way. You find it much easier to get away and leave it to others to make crucial decisions and implement them in your life, so if things do not work as you have imagined, you have others to blame.
Some say that this dream is very common in the lives of those who have an easy upbringing, probably their parents used to get everything done for them from an early age, so you find it hard to find the motivation to start and do something useful for yourself.
Now they also see where they went wrong, so they will try to correct it – in translation, we are saying do it for yourself, and later on, it will become a habit.
If you are sweeping the floor inside a house that you do not recognize, a completely random, unknown object, such a dream carries a bad symbolical value.
This is a bad sign for you in reality; it shows that you will presumably seem powerless or discouraged that you are not able to develop something.
This may be someone who is close to you, and it can be your lover, partner, or co-worker. They may hurt you in a most unexpected way, and the surprise comes from the fact that you did not expect them to act in this way, and they did, repeatedly.
They may hurt you or disappointed you in some way, and you are attempting to remove such emotions and memory from that event as soon as possible.
Therefore, the sweeping floor comes to your mind and a dream.
Decoding the Dream of Sweeping Floor
In the process of decoding dreams, we come to many more details to look at in this dream – it is not as much as sweeping of the floor is in question, but other elements that appear in a dream.
For example, if you are sweeping the floor and collecting all the “garbage” that you have swept the floor, it could happen that those are some valuable things.
This is the dream that has a good symbolical value; such a dream signifies monetary winnings that are waiting for you very soon.
Thus the dream is the symbol of time, awaits you shortly. You will finally solve some important money difficulties, and you will be able to decompress and experience some calmness and needed relaxation.
It is truly relevant that you do not waste any money just because you are used to being without it in the next few days or weeks.
Such an event is a valuable lesson but not something to get used to. In an alternate version, if you are sweeping the floor and people are looking at you, suggest that very soon you will visit someone who you did not see for a long time.
After the initial shock, you will be satisfied with it. Collectively you will invoke youthful memories and return to a more carefree time.
Dreams like this can also mean that you will recommence communication with old friends. You will appreciate going out and being with them, and such events are a blessing to our souls when we can remind ourselves of everything that was in the past.
If you are in a dream sweeping an extremely dirty floor that has a lot of dirt, things scattered, dust, etc., such a dream shows that your mind and soul are filled with an incredible amount of negativity and above anger and destructive sentiments. You are worried about something, so you cannot clearly distinguish what to think and believe.
It is very likely that you have been collecting all those negative emotions for a long time, and now you do not have anywhere to put them.
The first thing you need to do is remove from your life people who are negative, who never laugh, and constantly whining. They can permanently ruin your day, and one by one day, you will end up with ruined life, even though such life could be changed forever, for the better.
If in a dream you are sweeping the floor that is already sweeping, in that case, such a dream is a warning sign that you should get rid of some bad habits. You are aware that you have to change something for your life to be better and better quality – whatever it means to you, do it. Anything that will make you healthier.
Suppose you are sweeping someone else’s floor in a dream. In that case, such a dream is connected to your subconscious, tells you that you should have been more honest with someone in a vital situation – just because of the fact that you were hiding some critical aspects and neglecting them, cause you to lie, even if that was not your primary goal. You may have entered into a discussion with your partner, but you have decided to keep some things quiet not to hurt him.
This meaning can also apply to the business part of your life if that is what is truly important to you. If you have kept a mistake from your employer and colleagues, you probably think about it often.
