Dream meaning: Food

FoodFor many of us, food symbolizes caring; nurturing; security. Consider the kind of food and the action you are taking with respect to it, are you eating it, feeding someone, being fed, preparing or serving a mean?. Is this typical waking behavior, or is it expressing a deficiency or need? Liquids, milk, soft or mushy foods, or being fed may symbolize a need to be a baby again; possibly a need to regress for renewal. If you have foods you especially eat during stressful times, comfort food, and they appear in your dream, it may signal that you need to take care of yourself or your inner child.Because we take in food through and speak with the mouth, food can symbolize nurturing your ability or right to self expression or the opposite, inhibiting or preventing your expression.

Food can represent an offering of unconscious energy; intellectual wisdom (food for thought); as well as have religious or traditional and familial symbolism in that a particular food is always served at certain sacred or family gathering. If you are dieting, food can symbolize temptation. Feeding an animal suggests you arenurturing or developing your unconscious instincts or a more primitive aspect of yourself. Storing food may relate to feelings of emptiness or neediness or to hoarding needs.

    I keep dreaming that I am preparing to eat a pineapple and I cut off all my fingers on my right hand. I put two in to the freezer to ice them and put two into water.

    I had a dream where me and my family had just arrived home from KFC. When I looked outside the kitchen door there were these zombies that wanted my KFC. I was terrified so I ran to the bathroom. I looked into the mirror and it was like some kind of window portal thing where the zombies could see and make faces at me. Then I woke up.

    I dreamed I was spoon feeding pureed green beans to a baby that had already formed some teeth. Those teeth were in the back of the baby’s mouth but were front teeth. The baby spoke and said I’m hungry please. It was not my baby but a stranger’s.

    I dreamt that two beautiful white fluffy cats were eating food in my fridge while the fridge door was open. When I tried to stop them, they bit me with their sharp teeth. I couldn’t rescue my food from them. I read on the site that cats can symbolize female energy, and that food is representative of emotional support and comfort.

    This is an amazing dream for me to have at the moment as I have challenges with a group of women who seem to have issues with me. The dream has helped me see that I need to protect myself, that I am not safe, and will excuse myself from their company.
