In reply to RE: DREAMS ABOUT NASTY BATHROOMS, posted by aurora_2323 on August 28, 2005, at 10:56:09

Hi Aurora,

I agree with Toph… I think if you’re dreaming about bathrooms and you don’t wake up having to go, then it’s very possibly about sexuality.

Or it could be about needing to let go of something, or let something out, and worrying about the consequences of that.

I’ve also had a few bathroom dreams in my time, usually involving lack of privacy, which presumably reflects my own ‘issues’! There’s a lack of privacy in your dream too, since the cubies don’t have doors. But the lack of privacy seems almost secondary to the filth. The image of feeling your feet being sucked into the ‘mud’ is very graphic indeed. I think dreaming of feet is often about the journey through life. So if your feet are getting covered in yucky stuff and you’re not able to make easy progress, it seems to me that something is holding you back and causing you problems.

Becoming dirty in a dream can be a sign that you find yourself, or an aspect of yourself, disgusting and dirty. And it’s probably quite significant that you have this dream so frequently: that tends to indicate that there’s something in your life that requires urgent attention.

I would suggest that all these symbols together point to the possibility that you are ashamed of an aspect of yourself. Maybe you keep your feelings inside, and you might benefit from expressing your feelings more, but perhaps you are afraid to do so because you are afraid of what people will think, or because you are afraid people might take advantage of you. However, you might be starting to recognise that your fears of expressing your feelings and dealing with them is causing you problems. You might be realising that you can’t make progress until you start to initiate some changes.

Or I may be talking nonsense… I’m not an expert!
