Bathrooms and toileting

Dream Thought 486: 

Dreams about the bathroom focus on what you need to eliminate from your life. If it is number one, it is about getting rid of negative emotions. If it is number two, it is about getting rid of negative stuff you have internalized and/or no longer do you any good.

If you go into a bathroom and there is feces everywhere, the dream is talking about external things that you need to get rid of and out of your life.  It is toxic and must be eliminated.

Water is virtually always emotions in dreams.  If the dream involves showering or taking a bath, it is talking about how you need to clean up emotionally.

If it is a shower, it is more likely to be probable that it is about how you need to get rid of emotions towards others or emotions that are being directed towards you.

If it is a bathtub, it is likely to be more about immersing yourself in your emotions to clean yourself of them and free yourself from the negative portions of those emotions.

Most frequently, whatever proceeded the toileting, is probably what you need to cast out of your life because you do not need that stuff, so to speak.

A man had a dream that he went on a bus with other children to the school field day.  In the dream, he was supposed to go number 2 in a single small hole in the ground. He was extremely embarrassed.

Regarding this man’s dream, questions I would ask would involve whether there was something in his life where he was being treated like a child and forced to go along with the crowd (he traveled on a bus) to learn something that was elementary, embarrassing, and/or distasteful to him.

Freud thought toileting was important. Psychological theories such as Eric Ericsson’s  indicate that we learn skills at that point in our life  involving toileting which is a matter of trust and mainly autonomy.  I devote an entire chapter to the bathroom because it is so frequent in dreams in my book “Dreams: Guide to the Soul” at http://www.drstevenfox.com

Digging a hole for yourself

Dream 474: Hole in your soul
A woman dreamed she was at her work and this big cave opened up in the parking lot. It seemed to get bigger and no matter how much dirt she got in there to cover it, it never filled up.
Interpretation
Movement underground in a dream tends to represent the subconscious. You are at work so it probably involves work issues. I think the dream is saying that you’re staying at where you’re working is just digging a deeper hole for yourself. Pretty dramatic and the dream is doing this to emphasize it, I think.
Dreams are always perfect. The fact that it occurs in a parking lot, I think, means that your subconscious views you as stationery at your job, as not moving ahead career-wise.  This dream recommends that the woman get a new job and not stay with the company she was working for.
