Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

When you are dreaming about seeing or being a janitor in a dream it is associated with cleaning up something in your life.

The word janitor is from the Roman god of doors who was known as "Janus" this god was pictured with two faces. One face looks forwards and one backward. It is spiritually a sign that “a man is in charge of many doors” in life. Thus, it can indicate that this dream spiritually means that many doors will soon be open for you. To dream of cleaning up a mess or to see cleaning in a dream denotes there has been stress and drama in your life. The janitor in a dream is a direct symbol of fixing problems and cleaning up your life in order to have more order, structure, and space. The janitor is quite an unusual symbolism to see in a dream. We often see a janitor connected to school or work and this stream is associated with difficulties and problems in waking life. Don't fret too much is my advice.

My name is Flo and I've been studying dreams for two decades, many of my dreams have come true and I am here to help you unravel what the dream of a janitor means. To begin with, the janitor represents knowledge and education. When you see the janitor in a dream this indicates that you have traditional values in life.

Detailed dream meaning

When you have a dream about being a janitor you may want to consider the place in which the janitor is seen, in order to get a true and full understanding of what your psyche is trying to tell you. For example, if you see a janitor at your old school in a dream– such as high school or elementary school – this can indicate troubles from your past that need to be resolved. Maybe problems are coming back to haunt you! The association of the janitor is usually one that uses water to clean and because of this nature often the issues that need to be resolved are more emotional issues in your life. You know more than anything else how you are dealing with life's problems. I believe you need to pay attention to emotional hang-ups or worries that have happened in the past.

Being a janitor in a school environment in a dream indicates a life that is in disarray. During these busy times in life - try to focus on areas of your life that need more attention or that perhaps you have not been focusing on. Sometimes there is a problem that you have been needing to attend to but haven’t been able to. Yes, I think that this dream occurred because your mind is trying to get your attention. There are issues going on in your life right now do not need to focus on small changes. Because of these problems, these kinds of dreams can also indicate emotional stagnation or lack of growth. Quick fixes in your life are not going to work at this time. Responsibility is a key lesson for you in your life right now.

Seeing a mess and needing a janitor indicates that you are relying on others to fix your problems for you. This is okay so long as you are not doing it too much. This can also be an indication that you need to ask someone for help. It can mean that you need to be open to help – more accepting. Consider where people are trying to help you and perhaps you are being stubborn or unyielding.
