Heel Dream Symbol


Heel – The heel is the lowest part of the body. When people walk, they generally do it on the balls of their feet, not the heel. The heel is primarily used to stand at rest and balance our weight. It is the cornerstone of our body, without which we would be unable to be mobile. If you dream about the heel, it could symbolize a weakness as in Achilles’s heel. However, it also could represent strength.

There are many ancient references to people using their heel to crush serpents and other dangerous creatures. This is because the heel represents the thickest skinned part of our bodies that is the most difficult to penetrate. In this way, it is strength. In general, the heel symbolizes the duality of strength versus weakness. Dreaming about it is meant to convey the message that your weakness is also your greatest strength.

  2. i dreamt of being in my childhood home, and my deceased mom asked me to look at her heel that had a huge round protruding cyst on it and 3 tiny white pimples on that in shape of triangle. I told her what I saw and that i could pop the pimples and she said no. I kissed her heel, and then she showed me she had the same on her other foot. Other deceased neighbors women were also there.
