Sewage Dream Symbol


Sewage – Sewage is some really disgusting stuff. The majority of people has never actually come into contact with raw sewage and has no idea the actual level of disgust that it creates in those who do. However, this does not prevent many people from having dreams that they believe to be a real representation of sewage. Sewage is the symbol for waste.

If you dream about this type of waste it indicates that there is something in your life that your subconscious considers to be some absolutely disgusting as to merit a dream about sewage. Sewage taints everything it touches forever. The smell never truly comes off and that object must be thrown away if you have any desire of getting rid of the stench. If you dream about sewage then there is something in your life that has so unalterably changed and infested you that the only hope is to surgically remove that part of your life.

  1. I had a dream that I got home. The new tile wood look floor was wet. I stepped on it and realized it was a leak. Went to the shower and sewage was coming up. I said “The pipes are missing. How do I fix this? Why did I pick this place?” I felt like I had recently bought that house and didn’t make a good choice that could not be fixed.

    Side note. I dreamt this after coming home from my company’s Christmas party. I had a few drinks. I did feel like I picked the wrong table to sit at. But I think this dream is bigger than that.

    I dreamed I had to find a toilet because I started my period. I hopped into what I thought was restroom stall and it started to move. It rocked back and forth causing the sewage to slosh around. There were more people on board with me. Then it turned into a portapotty rollercoaster. Sewage was everywhere, going up our cracks, covering our feet. It was a nightmare. Then the coaster disappeared and we were sliding down a sewage waterslide. We were crying and searching for a pool to clean off in.

    In my recurring dream I saw myself in the most grimy, disgusting bathroom that I have ever seen before. A public bathroom with a lot of stalls in it (some opened and some closed) with horrifying toilets that were so dirty that they were overflowing with raw sewage. Even the sinks were overflowing with raw sewage. Every time I tried to get out, the structure of the bathroom would change therefore trapping me inside. The dream was like this for a while, until I finally found some showers that were not dripping with sewage where I was able to wash the filfth off of myself and find some relief. Eventually the dreams ended with comfort and not disgust.

  4. Dreamt the toilet / sewer started to backed up to first I started see dirty poopie water surfing and then all of a sudden Rush of all the other things came up and we’ll flooded toilet onto the floor and I woke up

  5. I dreamed last night that I swam through sewage to reach some good people I know. I felt embarrassed and desperate to change into something clean. It was disturbing. Given the comment above ” If you dream about sewage then there is something in your life that has so unalterably changed and infested you that the only hope is to surgically remove that part of your life” is intriguing. Yes, I’ve gone through a dramatic change in recent years (I spent 25 years as a Buddhist monk and now work and live in Seattle). The “good people” mentioned above were the community of monks. I believe myself to be a kind and decent person but have to make my way in the world as most people do so can’t afford the high ideals I once had. Interesting.

  6. I never remember much of my dreams, but my dream last night was so vivid. The only thing i don’t remember is who I was with. We were climbing on things, stepping on rubbish or something we thought….and then suddenly we realised we were in the middle of a sea of sewage and it was contaminated. We see people covered in sewage and we are panicking to get out of there before getting covered like they were.

    A toilet had been been blocked of I went to go toilet. Hear bubbling to the right was wide hole inside raw sewage. Small hole to the bk. Then it started to spill over. I ran out for help. I said to Mick my current boyfriend I Dont trust Marcus would he come with me. Next there’s four of use in protective gear in sewage planting lavender in the sides.
    This all started from taking the bottom shoe cupboard lid out and inside finding tons of clothes. To my left inside the cupboard where other things box’s bits n bobs. Though all was fimaler. I’m awke 4am this morning tired but wide awake.

  8. I had a dream about some people conspiring or making plans to throw some high profile person into a nearby sewage dump which had “3 kms of raw sewage”. I heard this again and again,”3 kms of raw sewage”. I woke up because I couldn’t take it any more,i.e being a part of the discussion.

    My dream. my closest friends and I sat in the school hall way near the classroom and then rats started coming out of the sewage system that was right under our feet, one of my friends was wearing really protected shoes (black and dark blue) and he didn’t got hurt, the other friend was wearing shoes that looked almost (with a little bit shades of grey) the same but she got beat ones by a rat, and I wore really exposed (white ones) and I could get easily hurt but I managed not to get hurt because I was cerfull enough.

    The friend that got beat ran after the rats afterwards…

  11. In mine I was in a city and the sewage backed up and there were founts of crap blasting out of toilets everywhere and people were all running around. I woke up laughing, so I think this might not have been a real sewage dream.

  12. I had a dream that I was in my bed sleeping and began to smell sewage. I remember thinking that sewage must have come up in the backyard or in the basement. It seemed so real that I woke up sniffing the air but the stench was gone. I soon realized that it was a dream.

  13. I have dreamed that my 6 years old daughter fell into a sewage hole while running around, at that moment I woke up from my sleep. I would like to know the meaning of the dream.
