What does dreaming of vomit mean in dream psychology?
If I turn to the psychological meaning of vomiting in a dream I will apply the theories of both Carl Jung and Freud. So what did these famous dream psychologists say about the dream of vomit? Firstly, Sigmund Freud in the 1930s pointed out a connection in every single dream with details in waking life. Applying this theory to your vomit dream indicates that experiences you have encountered while awake will affect your dream. Freud believed that every dream is deep-rooted in our subconscious mind. Applying this to vomit, this is quite a revolutionary idea that for some reason in daily life your worries and troubles are expressed as vomit. Freud studied what is known as “modes of thought” and looked at how our dreams can affect our manner and conduct in waking life, Freud believed that all our secret thoughts hidden away came to the surface and the conclusion in a dream state. Put simply, it could be that you saw television programme where somebody was being sick or vomiting. This influence, in turn, resulted in your dream.
This, external influences may cause your dream. Obviously, there is a spiritual dream meaning of vomit. If we look at further at the famous work of Carl Jung, (another famous dream psychologist) he believed that everything we have is energetic and our dreams are archetypical symbols. In fact, he had a theory that each dream is simply a message from our unconscious minds and that symbols in the dream such as vomit are an archetype. So what is an archetype? Basically, Carl Jung based his whole work on the fact dreams are archetypes. These are images of our dreams and the patterns that we develop while in our dream state. So, to conclude the theory says that you yourself “caused” this dream or it was from a deep routed image from daily life. I can now move onto the spiritual meaning!
