Gutter Dream Symbol


Gutter – There are many things that the dream symbol of the gutter can symbolize. The common phrase of “having your mind in the gutter” is pervasive in many of our worldviews, so a dream symbol of a gutter can be an indication of dirty or inappropriate thoughts. You may have a subconscious awareness that you need to elevate your thoughts from the mundane or obscene, and feel something of a disgust at the gutter in your dream.

A gutter can also be a place where people and things are that you want to pass by and do not want to encounter or engage. Lastly, a gutter can be a factor in cleansing, as water rushes through it. The exact meaning of your dream about a gutter is largely dependent on the context of this symbol.

  1. I dreamt that a family wedding was being held in America
    And I was in Africa.I crossed a big gutter and bridge to go to the was like from Africa to America,it was just a big gutter you would have to cross.

    • I had a dream where I am walking in gutter water but the area is full of trees and that is not really a gutter.
      The meaning coincides with the wish for a person whom I should never encounter or I wish he passed by. I had recently been misunderstood by a friend of mine and he hurt me and blamed me or rather tagged me as the one who breaks people’s friendship. I was the one who wanted to get stuffs sorted between him and my bestie and it turned on me. So now I know what this meant in my dream.

  3. I had a crazy dream I woke up from around 1:30. I climbed up an old decrepit wooden scaffolding missing lots of lower cross bars that was built up next to a house. I think I had paint and a brush with me, but dint remember that clearly. I felt some kind of pressure to do so, but not sure from whom or what. Like maybe it was my job, not sure. It was very scary and didn’t feel the least sound or stable. Looking down from the top looked about like 30 or 40 feet. I reached out for the gutter of the house to feel safe, but it was rotting wood and broke off in my hand. I looked down and saw one of legs on rhe scaffold fracture and I was going down. I woke up before I really began to feel the fall.

  4. I dreamt that I was in front of a very wide gutter which I could not cross because I was scared of falling into it. What does it mean?

  6. I was with my husband he went the wrong way on I-10 near the panhandle. We where getting close to where my grandma lives.i trid to tell him but he it figures it out before I could. We start to argue. He wants to go through the medium of the interstate. I don’t think it’s safe so I ask him to go towards the exit and get turn around. That is when I noticed that I was alone and walking down a sidewalk. I looked down in the sidewalk there where holes in it. then it gotten bigger with each hole I jumped over. Then it became a gutter in the ground. I look down in it as I was about to past it. There was a puppy, then there where more puppies. I go to reach for them to get them out. I pull back right a way when I see a little Wolf over what looks like a human baby with his head departed from his body. It was a boy baby. But the baby was alive. The wolf goes over the baby and knocks off some trash from the neck. I start to Panic. The baby was alive and the wolf was trying to protect him. Try to get the baby but as I do the wolf comes back. I am freaking out because I can’t get to the baby. Then I wake up.
