Our dreams, of course, are one of the ways our subconscious mind communicates with the conscious part of our minds. However, sometimes the message we receive can be challenging to comprehend and find meaning, such as having a nightmare with vomiting as the primary focus.
We vomit in real life because that is the body’s way of getting rid of something in our stomachs that is causing us to feel sick or nauseous. A similar interpretation can be applied to having vomit dreams, the difference being that the nausea is psychological.
Such dreams have a spiritual meaning, indicating that something is bothering us in our waking life much more than we think and that we must confront the issue. It could be something causing us much worry, negativity, or anxiety in our dreams.
What Does It Mean To Dream of Vomit?
1. You Have a Feeling That Something Terrible Is Coming
If you dream that you are vomiting, it could perhaps mean that you feel as if you will have some potential problems in the future. It may refer to your business, with material ownership, your social standing, even in particular relations with your family members, romantic relationships, or friendships.
Some would say that this could also be the opposite of a bad sign, that if you dream of this, you will not have problems but instead will find good fortune in these aspects of your life, and that the vomiting is a sign of getting rid of negative behaviors that can lead to a downfall.
Suppose you dreamt of vomiting on the floor. That is a good sign because it reinforces the possibility of you getting rid of the bad habits we have previously mentioned. You likely have nothing to worry about but something from your past to reflect on.
2. You Are Involved With Someone Who Might Have Bad Intentions
If in your dreams you saw someone else throwing up, it means that someone in your life with whom you are socializing or close has some sort of lousy intention towards you and wants to perhaps involve you in some kind of scandal, even if you do not want any part in it.
It could also mean that someone who is close to you might make a mistake, which will affect you as well, and that you should not take things personally and hold a grudge.
You need to be prepared for anything in this situation so you do not get blindsided and caught with your pants down and completely unprepared because this should be interpreted as a warning sign.
3. You are worried about the future and your whole family
Seeing a child vomit in your dream means you feel some anxiety for the future; perhaps some tragedy might strike your loved ones, and you will feel powerless to do anything about it.
Alternatively, seeing a child or baby vomit could mean many things. Firstly, if you saw your child vomit, it could be a sign that you must dig deep within your childhood memories and see if some part of you needs healing.
It may also signal new beginnings or something new coming into your life that might bring a certain zest or excitement that you have been seeking.
4. Someone Needs Your Help
If you dream of vomiting all over your clothes, it means that someone close to you is going through the wrong time and needs your help. Pay close attention to your surroundings and the behavior of people around you, and ask what is going on in their personal lives.
If you notice that a person seems “off” or distant, it could mean that they need a helping hand, and you should give it to them. Sometimes even being there, offering to listen, and providing a hug can go a long way for many people.
5. You Are Losing Your Passion
If you dream about vomiting blood, it is a symbolic show of you losing your motivation and passion for something you invested a lot of time and effort into, and now you feel as if you have entered a rut, a stalemate between needing to do something but not wanting to do it.
It could be that you have fallen into a state of depression, and now nothing feels as enjoyable as it used to, or that you feel that you have entirely mastered an art or craft and you simply cannot handle the enjoyment of further progress.
Another thing about dreams where you vomit blood is that you could be affected by some sort of illness that you are unaware of, so it would be wise to go to the doctor for a general checkup. Sometimes it is better to be safe than sorry.
6. You Feel Disgusted With Yourself
It is also possible that having a general dream about vomiting implies a general self-disgust because of some sort of behavior that we engage in that we enjoy at the moment but afterward regret and feel as if we are awful and need to re-evaluate ourselves.
It could be, for instance, a sexual fetish that you find great pleasure in, but after the deed is done, you feel a sense of self-loathing and as if you have sacrificed your innocence for a fleeting feeling of sexual satisfaction.
If this is what you feel the reason is for your dream, then the best course of action is to go see a therapist and see if you can make any progress there.
7. Fake People Surround You
If you dream of a group of people all vomiting simultaneously, then it is a sign that there is toxicity aimed at you going on behind your back. This group of people could be quite the opposite of what you thought they were.
Perhaps you were consciously ignoring some negative feelings or thoughts about these people to give them the benefit of the doubt and avoid jumping to conclusions. Still, this dream indicates that you should have listened to your gut.
It is very likely that shortly, you will be betrayed by someone you hold near and dear, and it will be a bad situation. Still, you will know your actual standing with these individuals and how to act accordingly in future interactions.
8. You Are Feeling Insecure
A dream in which you are vomiting your teeth may indicate that you are experiencing negative emotions towards yourself, such as insecurity and discomfort with certain decisions you have made thus far in life, such as in the workplace.
If that is the case for you, then it is essential to use your intellect and talents to form a strategy to help you move forward. It is important to have guts and not be afraid of failure because not trying to improve is almost the same as regressing.
Keep your head up high. Feeling wrong about something without a good reason for it will just be detrimental. Even if you have a good cause, you can always work on yourself or the issue that is bothering you and strive towards a happier life.
9. It Can Also Be a Sign of Coming Fortune and Happiness
If you saw yourself cleaning up vomit in your dream, that is a great sign; it could mean several good things. First, it could symbolize you finally getting rid of negative energy in your life; one could also say it represents you feeling like you have control again.
It can also mean that good luck is coming your way again, either in your professional or personal life.
If something wrong happens, this is your sign to try and fix the issue at hand as soon as possible so you can make way for good things that are bound to come afterward.
Dream interpretations are not an exact science, and many nuances are involved. Therefore, sometimes it is best to sit down and do a lot of research before jumping to conclusions.
Dreams of vomiting can have many symbolic meanings, but they all have one common theme: a bad feeling in the present that might indicate something terrible coming in the future, but this is not to be taken as an absolute fact.
It is essential not to have a particular bias when it comes to these things, where we look for any kind of meaning that would fit our wants and desires and use our dreams as a justification for why we should pursue something or feel a certain way about someone or something.
There is nothing wrong with searching for answers, but you must be very careful about which answers you fully accept and which answers you should be skeptical of.
It is good to remember that sometimes dreams are exactly that—dreams—and that there might not be a hidden or profound meaning. Keep in mind that you attract what you think about.
