Maggots Dream Symbol


Maggots – Maggots are a twofold symbol. First, they represent pestilence, disease and filth. However, maggots are also great cleaners and bringers of order and purity. They are used to clean out infection in critically injured patients when antibiotics are useless. They are also a barometer for household cleanliness.

Dreaming about maggots can be a very disgusting experience, but they serve as a warning that something in your own life is equally as disgusting as the scum that they feed on. They are also a sign of hope. As long as you are still able to dream about maggots you have a chance of correcting the problems that are affecting your life.

  1. I had a dream of maggots coming out of my sculpt and trying to remove them without success as dey keep on coming out.

  2. In my dream, i saw my sister in law filled her right chest with a lot of maggots as it is bleed. And i really get confused to help how to get all maggots away from her.

    • I had a similar dream but in my case it was my actual sister and maggots were all over her lower body when she took her clothes off in the bath and i was trying to help get them off…do people with answers actually respond to these things?? It would be nice if someone did because im am seriously worried this might mean something serious

  3. I had a dream that there were maggots all over me and every time i tried to get them off i couldn’t, there would be more. When i pulled my sleeves up they had left huge lumps all over my arms.
