Head dream meaning

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

To dream of a head is often symbolic in nature. This dream is connected to the dreamer’s intellect and intentions.

If you dream of having an extremely large head this suggests that you may have demonstrated a inflatable ego in some way, and it is time to stop this. It is much better to be laid back and not worry much about your situation.

Seeing your own head in your dream can suggest the quest to get ahead somehow at work. To have a small head means that others will try to dominate you. The head symbolizes the knowledge and intellect that will help others. If you see heads on a number of bodies, this shows you need to think more about situations that you encounter.

In your dream you may have

  • Seen someone’s head.
  • Seen your own head.
  • Seen a head that had been in an accident.
  • Had a headache.
  • Seen the head of a beast.
  • Seen the head of a dead person.
  • Washed the head of a dead person.
  • Eaten a sheep head.

  • Washed your head.
  • Seen a decapitated head.
  • Seen that somebody was cutting your head off.
  • Encountered a head having the hair clipped.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • Your head was normal and not swollen or exaggerated.
  • The head you saw was peaceful.
  • The head was not decapitated or compromised, merely isolated.
