Spiritual Meaning of Worms In Dreams
Now, it is important to know that all dreams are associated with our inner world, our hidden mind, and things we do not know or are not aware of.
This further implies that dreams can reveal a lot of our inner world, ut beings, and therefore we can analyze our dreams and learn more about our inner world.
So, here, one dream is particularly interesting to look at – the one where you are killing worms in a dream.
This dream is very specific to look at – there are many ways of how you can do it and here we want to choose one general.
So, if you had such a dream, where you are killing worms – this is the dream that can serve as a mirror, to take a look at yourself.
This is the dream that signifies that in reality, you will be in a situation to face yourself.
This is something that you desperately need to be done, and maybe you have neglected it, and now you must do it.
The first thing that you will learn here is that you are a fearful person – every time you start doing things, anything, a work project, or something else, you tend to quit.
The process of giving up comes in your case, very, very quickly – and the root of it is fear that you will never be able to succeed in what you have wanted, and you want to end it (give up).
All of your actions are directed by fear – out of your inability, feeling that you will never be able to do it and succeed.
Worms here are the symbol of many negative thoughts that are lurking in your head, and what is even worse is how easily they come to you.
The fact is that such feelings easily convince you and persuade you that the wisest thing to do is to give up.
And you listen to this voice – and here one more thing is important to learn not to give up.
Face fears, and it may be very hard to decide to leave your comfort zone, and this is very hard for many people, although this is what makes you so miserable.
You are unhappy, and when you are not happy you cannot grow, and any form of spiritual growth is not possible.
And, facing them will make you at least one step closer to happiness – such a dream mirrors the precision of the saying that the most significant success is to conquer oneself.
Another version of such a dream is very important from the spiritual point of view – we are talking about the dream where worms are coming out of you, a certain part of your body, like mouth or ears, or nose.
This is, by the way, a very common dream.
It means that you are about to face a very dark period in your life, and the worst part is that it could be avoided.
Such a period of excessive depression is something that you could avoid by all means, only if you have made yourself change and work on your inner being.
And you have not done it, you avoided this process, and now it is taking its toll, and you are reflecting it tough the dream world.
What is even more alarming when you experience such a dream is the fact that this form of depression can influence your health and connections with people you love very much.
But, for example, the positive version of the dream about worms, is when you see them in the apple.
If this was the version you have seen, then such a dream shows that you are the type of person who always by all means stay grounded and you stick to your beliefs.
This is very relevant for you – sticking to principles is what makes you a good human being.
For you, being the person who does not give up your principles is the trait that deserves big respect.
This is true even if you are often met with complaints and incomprehension.
A version of a dream where worms are all over your body and even are coming inside of your skin is truly scary.
Of course, from the spiritual point of view, this dream does not mean that something bad will happen and that you will die and worms will eat you.
Such a dream means that you in recent years have been focused more on the material world.
Here you are being told that this world is not as important as you think, because you have neglected what is truly important – the spiritual world that is inside of your soul.
Think o what are the things you desire – they are truthfully overrated and insignificant.
Dreaming of worms on the floor is a very common dream and it could also be explained from a spiritual point of view.
When you see them crawling on the floor, such a dream comes as the symbol of communication problems.
This is the dream that speaks of misunderstanding and there are a lot of disagreements, nonetheless, you attempted to suppress it, but you are not able to do it, because you do it from the superficial pit of view, and you must take a look at it from the inside.
Worms that are coming out of your skin are a dream that speaks of your guilt – the question here, and you need to answer is are you guilty of something and your conscious cannot deal with it?
Maybe you are hiding something from a person who loves you very much.
Do not be the slave of your fears, and face your actions and words.
It will not be easy, but it will be very therapeutic.
An additional version is the one where you see the bird that is feeding its young with worms.
This dream is a sign of worry.
Such a dream suggests that you care about someone.
It can be a family member, maybe a close friend, or a coworker.
Presumably, that person is going through a stirring, economic or other situation, and you want to help that person and you are not quite sure how to do it.
Here the main thing is never to underestimate the extent of the love and aid you have under your belt, and the deep need to be the person who loves to help others, especially people who are close to you.
They truly should value you, and you should value yourself.
