Lying on Back Dream Symbol


Lying on Back – Dreaming about lying on your back can always be interpreted as being vulnerable. However, the tone of the rest of the dream can determine whether it is a comfortable vulnerability or not. If you are lying on your back awaiting a lover, for example, it would symbolize that you are ready to take the next step with them. If you dream about standing over someone who is lying on their back, it represents your power over them.

  1. Hi there,

    I dreamt I was walking around in a field with lush green grass. There was one patch of dirt far away. I was looking gr8 somewhere to lay but everywhere I looked there were people there lying down already or there was faeces everywhere. Like dog faeces. It was so annoying because I felt like I just wanted to rest but couldn’t. Could you please kindly help me with this.

  2. My husband has left me for another woman within eight months of our new marriage, most of times dream of him lying on his back in my house and there would a lot of people around but the new woman.

    What could this mean?

      Perhaps he won’t ever be satisfied. My idea on this dream might mean there are plenty of people around (options) & he might be waiting for someone new often. Or maybe he has image issues(which can often manifest power issues); are these people strangers or someone you or he knows?
