Dream Interpretation of Toilet in Dream Dictionary for Dummies:
Physically speaking seeing a toilet in dreams means that you need to purify, renew, or clean yourself, be careful of your body, or get rid of toxins or tension.
In this case, dreaming about toilets imply that you are allowed to focus privately and totally on nurturing and tending to yourself. They also indicate that you are cleansing harmful emotions.
Elimination of old ideas and entering a period of spiritual rebirth are common dream interpretations of toilets in this manner.
Spiritually, a toilet suggests that we are trying to get rid of being negative or pessimist. Something wrong with the toilet in a dream could represent that we are emotionally blocked and if the toilet is overflowing, it implies the blockage is causing difficulty in controlling our emotions in the time being. Going to an unfamiliar toilet is an indication that we are in a position where we are not aware of the outcome.
When you are losing your ‘prudish’ attitude and may have gone through some kind of internal epiphany, it is incompletely usual to have the dream of cleaning a dirty toilet. In the past, for many people, the toilet in dreams was a symbol for dirt and lack of appreciation or it had some inevitable associations with sexuality but nowadays it symbolizes notions of privacy, and the ability to reach a state where we can release our feelings in private. At the end, in both men’s and women’s dreams, toilet dreams can often be about self-worth and clearing childish confusion.
