What does mud symbolize as a motif in dreams? We usually associate mud with the idea of something unclean, dirty or corrupted. If something is muddy, it is considered dirty.
Not only we see mud as something unclean in physical terms, but we also use it as a powerful metaphorical motif. If we try to illustrate, for example, some shadowy and unclean business, we are likely to say those are ‘muddy’. However, it is not always the case.
Mud is also associated with life, cure and health, in general. Long time ago, people have discovered healing properties of different types of mud.
All over the world, we still have various types of spa resorts and centers for relaxation and/or rehabilitation featuring mud massages and different therapies.
Mud has been a part of all sorts of rituals in tribal societies and in many more. AS we can see, mud symbolism is dual, even if the very first association is usually a negative one.
Mud symbolizes dirtiness, shame, trial, illness and corruption, but also healing, cure, regeneration, survival and life.

Dreams about seeing mud
If you see mud or an area of mud in your dream (for example, a part of land covered in mud in natural environment, an open space with a pool full of mud or else), it is not particularly good sign.

It means you are thinking about what to do next.
You are afraid of uncertainty; you do not know what would happen if you step onto the mud. You wander are there any holes in your plans or in opportunities in front of you, so that makes you feel anxious and insecure.
Dreams about walking on mud
Dreams about stepping onto and walking on mud mean someone you know will betray you and disappoint you. You will find yourself betrayed, backstabbed and ashamed by someone you have trusted very much.
This dream could also mean someone will accuse you of something you have never even thought off, not to say have done. However, you will find it very hard to clean up your name.
It will take time, dedication and many investments to build up your unrightfully stained reputation all over again. You will first have to prove you are clean and then to recover peoples’ trust in you.
Being wrongly accused will make you feel deeply frustrated. On the other hand, this dream could symbolize your courage and readiness to risk, to explore and to embrace your life the way it is, without waiting for the perfect moment.

This dream means you are surrounded by lies, so you should be more careful and observant.
Do not open up to everyone, especially when it comes to people from your working environment.
Dreams about being covered in mud
If you dream that you are covered with mud or stained by mud, it means the time has come for you to relax and slow down. It means you have too many responsibilities and your life seems to be a bit messy.

Moreover, you have started making too many mistakes. Relax, breathe in, take of your muddy clothes and start over again.
This dream means you should decide your proprieties and focus on fewer projects. Patience is golden, they say. Dreams in which you put mud on your skin means you need to regenerate, relax, heal.
