  1. anneline

    I had a very disturbing dream, I was in a room covered with my own poo, I was cleaning it, and I saw my co worker angry at me not speaking to me, but the other co worker very friendly, and on the dream my boss bought me new clothes and he looked soo happy. I woke up with a very sad feeling. could this mean something bad? please assist me anonymous south africa

    • Barbara Lardinais

      Ask yourself, what is going on in your work life? Are there tensions? Is your boss favoring you right now, and other employees may be angry about it? Do you feel sad about any situation related to your employment right now? It seems to me this is simply a dream of the “soulish” variety, coming out of your own mind and emotions. You are probably working something through. Try my book, Dreams, God’s Voice in the Night for more information.

    • Diane

      Hi! I don’t think this is a “bad” dream! Excrement dreams are not uncommon; I believe they have to do with getting spiritually clean (bathroom dreams are not uncommon). I am not a pro, but from courses I’ve taken, sounds like you are getting “cleaned up” by the Lord and one person likes it and one does not (also not unusual!). I’m not sure if the “boss” is your real boss or is the Lord. But ask the Holy Spirit. Hope this helps and God bless.

      • Barbara Lardinais

        Keep in mind that dreams are always within the context of the dreamer’s life. The emotions of the dream are very important so it isn’t always a good idea to apply generalizations to an individual’s dream. There is more than one reason for “elimination” dreams. We also don’t want to over spiritualize dreams. Dreams come from one of three sources: divine origin, demonic origin, or (and most fall into this category), soulish origin–our own life as we process things that happen to us.

    • Pepper

      Your boss represents God. He is our head. The coworkers are other Christians. We are laborors together in Christ. We are supposed to bear with one another’s faults in love. One had the godly response, and the other did not. Love covers a multitude of faults. And that is what God, your boss has done for us. He cleans us up, and covers us with a new garmet. You tried to do it yourself but you really can’t so “the Boss” stepped in.

      Be blessed!

      • Barbara Lardinais

        I’m not so sure as you are. Does a boss in a dream always represent God? I believe dreams should be interpreted within the context of the dreamer’s life. I can see other possibilities, and in the end, the dreamer usually has the best sense about what their dream really means.

        • Pepper

          Few things are “always” or “never.” So dream symbols alone should not be relied upon to interpret dreams. And while you are right that context is relevant, it is not an absolute either. This is why we rely on Holy Spirit to bring inspiration, and bear witness when Interpreting dreams (and everything we do).


          • Barbara Lardinais

            Great insight. I agree 100%. Thanks for weighing in.

  2. Gloria

    Although I have always dreamt, lately, I dream almost every night. Is that normal? I believe maybe I am mostly working out things in my own life.
    I struggle with trying to determine what category some dreams fall into. I am going through chemotherapy at the moment and wonder if that could be why I am dreaming so much.

    • Barbara Lardinais

      I think we all dream every night, it’s just that all dreams are not remembered. Perhaps your normal sleep routines are somewhat disrupted because of the medicines you are taking. You might ask your health care provider about that. As far as categories, you are probably correct that the vast majority of all dreams come from things we are working out in our life. I call that the “soulish” origin. The other two dream origins are “divine” and “demonic”. May the Lord heal you and may you be in perfect health!
