Detailed dream meaning...

When you have a dream about a janitor you want to consider the place in which the janitor is 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 – such as high school or elementary school – this can indicate troubles from your past that need to be resolved that 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 than anything else and so you want to pay attention to emotional hang ups or stunting that happened in the past.

Being a janitor indicates a life that is in disarray. During these times try to focus on areas of your life that need more attention or that perhaps you have not been focusing on. Sometimes there is something that you have been needing to attend to but haven’t been and your mind is trying to get your attention. Issues going on in your life right now do not need small changes but true cleansing. Because of this 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.

Having 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 and 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.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life...

  • Clearing out old emotions or bad habits
  • Moving on from the past
  • Sorting out  your life
  • Getting on your own two feet
  • Being more responsible

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of a janitor…


Helpless. Lost. Confused. Weird. Freaked., Nervous. Assertive. Dependent. Helpful. Happy.
