Being Eaten

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

This dream is extremely rare. This shows that you have been acting out of character lately and it is time to recognize this and control the ego.

The actual details of the dream are important.

Think about the monster that eat you and your actual fears. Think back to the dream and answer the following questions: Are you afraid that you are going to experience any pain? Did you get swallowed? If you were eaten by an animal this signifies that things in waking life will require your attention.

If you experienced pain during the dream it is trying to tell you that material possessions are not important: remember we come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing! Seeing another person being eaten by a snake can mean you have encountered a disagreement with someone.

Detailed dream interpretation

In regards to actually being swallowed, if this occurred then it is a clear message that material wealth just is not worth the fight that you have set out for yourself.

The primary element of this dream according to Jung is sexual. Being eaten consequently indicates that one is consumed by their sexual drive. Becoming eaten, especially exhibits how we interact with one another, or a fragile feeling of the self.

To be chased or pursued show a feeling of being threatened by somebody or something in waking life. The main element of this dream is to uncover the reasons of why you were eaten. If you didn't recognize the person or monster eating you, it's probable that you have characterized aspects of your personality and that you are in denial or are attempting to escape something in waking life. This sort of an interpretation is particularly likely if you were chased by the thing that was trying to eat you. The attacker may have been your shadow, symbolizing your dependence, neediness, jealousy, greed or lust. Your unconscious is encouraging you to arrive at a conclusion to try to make sure you move on.

If a monster, animal or non-human was eating you, this symbolizes interior fears rather than exterior threats. These creatures usually stand for your aggressive animal or instinctual character which you'll want to discover how to control. Not realizing who or what is around you in the dream is often a typical anxiousness or disappointment style of dream, usually experienced if you're about to commence a new phase of life; the anxiety is provoked by your realization that everything is dependent on oneself. Whoever or whichever your pursuer symbolizes, bear in mind they signify a problem you need to face. As with dreams of pursuit, when you are drowning or struggling to breathe in the dream, you might be experiencing inner thoughts of stress and uncertainty in waking daily life. This kind of desire also alerts you to areas of your respective unconscious that need to be confronted. To be eaten by a sea creature, or a whale means that you may encounter idle gossip.
