Foetus dream meanings

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

To dream of a foetus is an indication that you have become aware of yourself and your greater spiritual power. This dream also indicates that you are making yourself aware of a new situation in your life - this dream also means you are linking back to the point where everything begins and you need to look at the process again so that you can make sure that you have a firm decision in the centre of creation.

Freud believed that if somebody had a dream of a foetus then this will yield a coherent and intelligent picture of the dreamer's characteristics.

Obviously, when we look at dreams we try to find an assigned meaning. This dream can be rather upsetting depending upon the details and why the foetus was presented within the dream.

If the dream was positive in nature, then we can comprehensively understand that this is a positive dream about new beginnings and life. A more concerning dream would be if the dreamer could see events surrounding an abortion. Especially if the foetus was witnessed within the dream. The crucial question that we must now address is whether the dream was positive or negative in nature. After examining this, and what Feud studied - we will try to return a definite interpretation of this dream.

In your dream you may have

  • Seen a foetus inside a womb.
  • Had an abortion.
  • Seen an unhuman foetus
  • Lost a foetus.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You have a pleasant experience seeing a foetus.
  • Everything in the dream was positive.

Detailed dream interpretation

This dream has a number of advantages. It is associated with life which equates to new beginnings. Being engaged in any activities with the foetus indicates that new challenges will be presented.

There is a casual connection between seeing the foetus and giving birth. If you found yourself giving birth to a foetus in a dream this is directly associated with your mental state/ activity. There is insufficient information within this dream if the new beginnings are going to be successful.

We can conclude that if the dream was positive then the expectations in the future will be of a positive nature. All positive ties found in such a dream are important to note.

If the foetus is dead then it is essential that the dreamer does not engage in activity that might endanger themselves.

There may be problematic situations in waking life, if one dreams of giving birth to anything that is not human. If we look at the foetus as a new start rather than a new soul or baby then this dream denotes that new possibilities are on the horizon.

Interpreting a dream implies assigning a “meaning” to it - that is replacing the literal meaning with a spiritual one. Thus, in Freud’s terms this dream is about starting a fresh and new beginnings.

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of a foetus
