Vomiting Dream Meanings and Interpretations


Vomiting Dream Symbol – Vomiting is as unpleasant in a dream as it is in waking life. The significance of vomiting is similar, as well. In waking life, we vomit because we are ill, and often because there is something in our stomach that our body recognizes as dangerous and wants to expel. In a dream, the dream symbol of vomiting also signifies violently expelling something poisonous from ourselves.

This is most commonly an idea or a belief which we have internalized, or “eaten,” and which we now need to remove and be rid of before it causes more damage. It is also possible to have a vomiting dream symbol about a relationship or even about a situation in life, though these things are also most often connected to ideas and beliefs.

People make us believe different things about ourselves, and so a toxic relationship can make us believe things about ourselves that we should reject for our own well-being.

  1. I have had a few dreams where I am terrified because someone is trying to kill me (I am usually being chased). I open my mouth to scream and I projectile vomit at them. What could that mean?

  3. The other night I dreamt I was making myself throw up a pop. In my backyard theres a place that goes down to the basement that has the drain next to it. I was doing it there, I specifically remember the drink had 2 ice cubes & a glass cup.

  4. Last Night i had a pretty bad fight with a friend, and i knew i had to get out of that frienship because i knew it was way too toxic, that night my dream was about eating candy that i really liked and that tasted so good, but as i finished eating it, i began to vomit. To interesting part was that i never stopped eating the candy, it was like, i know it makes me vomit really bad, but i couldn’t stop eating it, just like my friendship, i knew it was really bad for me, but i couldn’t put closure on it.

  5. My dream was that my ex was vomiting into my mouth as I was asleep.. but it didn’t taste like vomit. In my dream I had woken up to this event and start blowing the fluids out of my mouth. But to the ex girlfriend it was uncontrollable: I pushed her head away from and and she said no as if I wasn’t suppose to wake up and those fluids where suppose be injested .

    • I had a very similar dream – in the dream i was preparing to go to sleep when suddenly (and out of nowhere) my ex kissed me and i felt my mouth are full of liquid. It didn’t taste like vomit but i knew it’s vomit. Then, I removed from my lips some more of my own vomit .. such a wonderful dream XD I couldn’t find interpretation of this nowhere 😀

  7. I just had a dream where I was what felt like a fictional woman (I’m a male) that was brought to another world with a group of friend figures (composed of at least one girl and a Batman-esk guy figure and maybe 3 others) it felt like a familiar land like a show I remembered watching in the past, the lights went out and I either told myself or someone close “their taking her, she’s not actually her” apparently about one of my close friend figures the lights came on and she was acting different towards only me it seemed. Area changed we were in a palace like dining hall all huddled around with what felt like royal officials to the lands then saying I was to be kept there as ruler the Batman-esk guy wasn’t having it, seen change dinner celebrateing my crowning, seen change I was laying on a love seat the guy came over I was sent to his POV for a Brief moment seeing who was myself laying there with his head filled with thoughts of ways to get me out of this “situation” I’m back in my own female head he’s atop me kissing me then he starts what felt like shaking and filling my mouth with liquid i choke on the chunky liquid as I panic for the both of us I push him off he falls to my side as I cough the blood laced vomit out of my mouth as I revel in fear and terror as I see the bloody mess I coughed up and see his dead body laying on me. I wake up with wanting to cough up spit

  8. i dreamt that i was vomiting and i suddenly woke up, gagging. I fell back to sleep and i had a dream that i was eating crayons… but i woke up again gagging…

  9. i puked in my dream last night. i noticed because i never puke in real life so I researched the meaning. My life is good and i am in a good place. I don’t have very many toxins in my life. So why was i puking in my dream?

    • Edit: It wasn’t unpleasant in the dream. In real life I absolutly hate vomiting and even if i feel like it is possible for my to, I will hold it back because i dislike it so much. in the dream I puked and it didn’t feel horrible and i said it felt better afterwords

  10. I was dreaming I was throwing up and in my sleep I woke up choking and throwing up then my cat was throwing up

    • Seven Istheman on

      My cat threw up earlier. Then I went to sleep and I puked in my dreams. I woke up and all is fine thank God.

  11. Reoccurring dream of non violent vomiting, it gently falls out of my mouth after I open my mouth after soft vomiting motions, of multi colored liver like shiny chunks about the size of my palm, bright colors of dense shiny, smooth pieces of palm sized livers. Any ideas?

  12. Cheyanne Kujawski on

    I almost vomited before I went to bed last night and then in my dream, I threw up in my mouth but kept it there throughout my dream because I was at a party. Then at the end of the party, I let it out of my mouth. Seeing it, I threw up again and again until I woke up which was sorted after. When I woke up, I felt like I had to vomit. Although, I have been feeling kind of sick lately, so could that be a factor?

  13. Jessica Garnett on

    I have been having dreams about vomiting rats and cats. The cat always comes out first then two pale white rats, my mother and husband are both trying to ask me if I am okay but I fall to the floor and am unable to move or talk and the rats are dead wet looking, super freaky claws and teeth. The cat is alone though and begin eating them rats, this dream is re ocouring I have been having it about once a week for two months, I always wake up crying and shaken
    Help me interpret so I can not have this dream any more.

  14. I could taste that slight salty wet dry mouth feeling, which to me is both exhilarating an frightening, coz I hate vomiting. It often takes hours for me to vomit properly even when I plunge nearly my whole fist down my throat. Anyway in the end, I can’t remember whether I actually vommited or not. ijust remember running from the table iwas sitting at towards a sink, bcoz I knew I needed to be sick. I also remember thinking how funny it was, needing to vomit whilst in a dream setting.

  15. I really need answers I was screaming like a demon with blood running out of my eyes before I threw up in my dreams then I woke up at 5 in the morning and threw up at my bedside trash can

    Please I’m really gonna need answers. I had this dream vomiting and crying about my late mum and the suffers of my granny to my coordinator in school. The vomit was very white. Even as it touched the floor, it didn’t get any extra colour mixed in it. It was white like nothing I’ve ever seen.
