Feces are a common motif in dreams, believe it or not. According to many interpretations of dream meanings, dreams about feces are amongst the ten most common types of dreams.
These dreams could represent various things, but are usually related to materiality, finances and social status of a dreamer.
These dreams could, of course, be positive or negative; it all depends on details and of the perception of a dream by a person who dreams.
Many times, dreams about feces are caused by our physiological needs to go to the toilet.
For example, if a person has health issues that affect their digestive system, dreams about feces are, unfortunately, the result of such problems.
In that case, it is not particularly a symbolic dream and it does not require deeper understanding.
In other situation, when there are no such issues, dreams about feces could have deeper meanings.
Dreams about seeing human poop
Interestingly, but dreams about seeing human poop are lucky and fortunate. Such dreams suggest you will soon hear good news or experience something really positive.
It is usually something related to finances; you will get promotion, a bonus on your salary, an unexpected heritage, a reward, you will win a lottery or whatsoever.
The most common interpretation of a dream in which you are seeing poop suggests your work will pay off. You will get more than you have expected, because you worked hard and you did not overestimate yourself and what you were doing.
The dream symbolizes a fairly deserved reward.
Dreams about seeing an animal’s poop
Dreams about seeing an animal’s poop (for example, a dog or cat poop) have similar meanings to dreams about seeing human poop. This type of dreams is usually interpreted the same way; it suggests you will get some money.
The dream, however, could also mean exactly the opposite, depending on how you feel about the dream.
For example, if you dream about seeing poop of animal origin in your house, it means something will go wrong. It means there are things that constantly mess with your success.
Whatever you do, something just pop out, out of nowhere and stops you from moving forward.
Especially on a professional and financial plan. Perhaps you should be more cautious about opening up to people around.
Someone does not want you to be successful, so he or she constantly designs ways to prevent your success. Those could be minor, not so easily noticeable and recognizable obstacles you may even take for granted.
Open your eyes wide and be careful. If you, on the other hand, see animal poop outside, it is more likely to be a good omen.
Dreams about stepping into poop
Dreams about stepping into poop are unpleasant, just as the same event is uncomfortable in reality. However, the meaning behind this dream is positive. It is even a more positive sign than seeing poop in a dream.
This dream means you will definitely experience something totally opposite in your waking life. It is a fortunate and good sign for your nearest future.
This dream suggests you should believe in yourself and never give up your dreams; eventually, all of your hard work, dedication and devotion will pay off.
In a dream, you might be stepping into poop, but in reality, you could step into a gold mine, to say so.
Dreams about stepping into poop usually symbolize an unexpected reward for something you have invested in, but did not have any major expectations from.
However, it was probably something you love to do, so you stepped into it with full dedication and a lot of love, not asking anything in return. Such things always lead to some kind of success.
Dreams about the smell of feces
Dreams about smelling feces are unpleasant, by all means. However, they are not necessarily negative in meaning.
On a positive side, dreams about smelling feces mean you will soon get a hint about a very promising business opportunity and you should take it.
The dream could encourage you not to lose hope if you are not seeing any opportunity, because it is likely to show up very soon.
On a negative side, this dream could suggest a completely opposite scenario. It could mean that there is a business opportunity you are already seeing coming your way, but you have doubts about it and you are in right to suspect it.
It could be something shady and illegal, so you should definitely avoid it.
The actual interpretation depends only on your intuition. It is the dreamer’s sense of a dream that decides whether it is a good or a negative one, especially when it comes to dreams that are unpleasant by nature (such as dreams about feces, graveyards, dead things, rotten food etc.).
If a dream about smell of feces does not make you feel sick and disgusted, it is a positive one and vice versa.
Dreams about a messy toilet
Dreams about a toilet that is messy, with poop and other disgusting things all around, it means you have really big problems with your intimacy. It means someone messes up with it.
It means you cannot keep your intimacy intimate as it should be, so people you do not want to know about some your really personal things see everything, know much more than you would like them to do and, what is perhaps the worst part, they speak about it all around.
Dreams about a toilet covered with poop mean you have no control over your personal life; all the things you would like to keep hidden became public.
The dream is negative and warning; it suggests you should really work hard on winning your reputation over again and this time, keeping the dirty laundry behind the curtain.
This dream suggests you have many inner conflicts. It means your mind and your heart struggle; you cannot decide whether you should trust your heart or your reason. That leads to a real mess in your whole being.
You are possibly losing control over your entire life, so it is the perfect moment when you have had this dream to collect yourself and clean up the mess you made. You can always start over, it is never too late.
Dreams about getting dirty by feces
This dream is a negative one, beside that it is very uncomfortable. Dream about getting dirty by feces means you will experience something bad on a professional and social plan.
There are people who do not wish you good and they will do everything in their power to stop you from advancing.
The dream suggests you cannot avoid it; you will be damaged somehow.
The dream, however, could be a good warning sign. Open your eyes and do not trust to people easily. Keep your ideas and plans to yourself and be a bit more suspicious.
Of course, you should not become paranoid; only pay more attention on how people approach to you and what they actually want from you. Trust your intuition.
This dream could also mean you have really messed up something. You have said or done something that put you in a bad position; it is something you cannot do much about, except to accept responsibility and consequences.
It should not discourage you at all. This dream is only a part of a lesson; we are all learning from our mistakes and, sometimes, each one of us gets dirty.
