What do dreams mean? Are they reflection of our reality or a parallel universe of hidden meanings?
Dreams represent much more than we are able to fathom, perhaps.
Throughout history, many wise people have been trying to unravel the mystery of dreams.
In dreams, both common and uncommon things happen.
We could dream about completely ordinary things, but sometimes reams get so bizarre and awkward that we keep wondering – how is it even possible that we dream about such things?
Dreams can be strange, scary, disturbing, terrifying, but also beautiful, pleasant, pure joy.
There are dreams which make us thank God after waking up for those scenarios did not happen for real; there are those we wish never to wake up from.
In any case, it is difficult to say what dreams actually represent.
Some of the experts of psychoanalysis would say dreams represent our suppressed desires and there could be some truth in that.
Dreams definitely reflect things that happen in our waking life, but probably they are more than that.
Dreams do help us process things that happen to us during our waking time, but there has to be something more about them.
In dreams, we often search for symbols. Our lives are tightly bound with the symbolical world, everything we experience and see is associated with symbolism.
Throughout history, dreams have been associated with symbolism and hidden meanings and often interpreted as prophetic.
It is also believed that through dreams we connect with higher realms, communicate with other worlds etc.
Sometimes we dream about common things. Dog poop is something pretty ordinary; well, it is definitely not something odd per se.
For some reason, it is associated with luck. Let us see what are some symbolical interpretations of dog poop and how they apply in dreams.
Dog Poop Symbolism
Dogs have been around humans since very distant past, sharing with us food and shelter.
For a good reason are dogs considered humans’ best friends, our loyal, furry, four-legged companions.
Dogs are associated with friendship, loyalty, fidelity.
Of course, there are also certain negative associations related to dogs, for they could also be considered dangerous animals.
Sometimes, dogs are associated with threat, anger, madness.
However, dogs have generally been associated with trust and reliability.
There are wonderful stories around the world about dogs who were loyal to their owners until their death or until the owner has passed away.
Dogs are also associated with playfulness and youth, for they are, indeed, joyful fellows who enjoy playing games. There is nothing cuter than a dog’s puppy!
Our four-legged fellows also make a bit of mess. Well, they have to, just as everybody else.
We talk about dogs’ feces. How many times did it happened that you have stepped into dog poop? Did it make you angry or not?
Stepping into dog poop is not a very funny experience, if you think of it.
However, most people do not feel very upset about it, on the contrary. How so? Isn’t it something awful?
Well, stepping into dog poop is generally considered a good luck.
So, if you have stepped into dog poop, you are a lucky person!
How lucky you are depends on the foot you’ve stepped into it. This is not an isolated symbolical interpretation.
Although stepping into dog poop is, well, gross, per se, it is considered a sign of luck and it is definitely not an isolated case.
For example, if a bird poops on you, it is also a sign of good luck and fortune. If a spider walks on you, it is the same.
There are many similar cases, when something that is essentially awful and unpleasant is being interpreted as something positive.
Okay, let us find out what does dog poop mean in dreams.
