Dream Explanations of Astro Center | Astro Center


To determine the meaning of bathing in a dream, one might first ask what the individual associates with bathing. For some people it is simply cleaning, so a dream of bathing indicates the cleansing, or need for cleansing, of some area of life. For other people, a bathtub represents the supreme arena of relaxation, during which she or he is free from the demands of work and from the rest of the family. Baths can also represent baptisms, an initiation ritual in which the old person is cleansed or purified to make way for the rebirth of the individual undergoing the baptism. Finally, water represents the unconscious, so bathing can mean immersion in the unconsciousness.

Islamic Dream Interpretation | Ibn Seerin


Suggests cleansing (possibly a ritual cleansing, from sin). This type of washing usually refers to “cleansing of the soul.” It often also refers to relaxation and recuperation. At the same time, the image of a bath is always connected with the “fountain of youth.” The symbol is similar to Shower, Sauna, Soap. Cold water means trouble; and so does hot water—”getting into hot water.” Water that is too hot means unconsciousness.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar


Immersion in water takes its symbolism from this element (see WATER), although the action of bathing is not only associated with purification. It also represents the concept of regeneration. Consequently, if you dream of taking a bath you should let your feelings flow freely in order to live more harmoniously.

If the bath is nice it indicates that such harmony is near. On the other hand, if the water is too hot or too cold is a sign that sometimes you are not honest enough.

If you are not comfortable with your feelings, taking a bath is like a psychological cleansing. The water represents your emotional nature and the action symbolizes the desire of get rid of old attitudes, negativity, guilt... Some suggest that in this dream the bath water is like the mother’s womb. The subject’s desire is to return to such safety and warmth.

Formerly, it was believed that washing with water eradicated not only dirt from the body but also sins from the soul. Conversely, bathing and cleaning oneself means expelling the subject’s good fortune. To prepare a bath, however, is an omen of a battle won.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke


If the bath was empty, it is a warning against decisions made, or actions carried out in anger.

If the bath was cold or too hot you will have to revise some favorite plan, but if the temperature was pleasantly warm, your current expectations will be realized.

Ritual Bath

(Ablution; Ghusul; Ritual ablution; Wash)A ritual bath (arb. Ghusul. Islamic Law) is customarily performed on a festival day, or before the Friday congregational prayers, before starting a pilgrimage, after recovering from an illness, or is necessitated by the emission of sperms either during one’s sleep or following a marital intercourse.

A ritual ablution is also given to a deceased person before his funeral and burial, or otherwise is taken by the undertaker himself after washing the dead.

To take a ritual ablution in a dream before the Friday congregational prayers means purifying oneself, washing oneself from sin, repenting from sin, serving one’s parents, or being true to one’s friends. Taking a ritual ablution for any of the above reason during the wintertime and using cold water in the dream means distress, trouble or a sickness. Ifhot water is used, then it means profits, benefits and recovering from sickness. Taking a ritual ablution in a dream before attending a festival means getting married. Taking a ritual ablution after seeing either a solar or a lunar eclipses in a dream means an adversity, and the same applies if one takes a ritual ablution in a dream before the prayers of asking for rain.

To take a ritual ablution after washing a deceased person in a dream means abandoning one’s association with heedless people.

If the person who performs such an ablution is mentally deranged, it means that he will wake-up cured from his condition. Taking a ritual ablution prior to joining the sacred pilgrimage in a dream means happiness, success, victory over one’s enemy, paying one’s debts, or reuniting with one’s beloveds. Taking a ritual ablution before circumambulating the sacred House in Mecca in a dream means working for one’s livelihood, serving rich people, or caring for one’s wife and parents.

If a sick person sees himself taking a ritual ablution then putting on a new garment in a dream, it means that he will soon recover from his illness. Taking a ritual ablution in a dream also could mean the release of a prisoner, payment of one’s debts, dispelling one’s distress, or it could mean richness, prosperity, attending the sacred pilgrimage in Mecca, or having a successful business.

If one does not put a new garment after taking his ritual ablution in the dream, it means that he will be able to lighten his burdens, or recover his good health. Walking into a pond, or descending a well, or stepping into a bathtub to take a bath in a dream means marriage. Washingoneselfwith soap during such an ablution means dispensing of one’s debts, or dispelling one’s stress. Washing one’s garment after taking a Gllusul in a dream means correcting one’s conduct, pursuing the correct religious life, paying one’s debts, or washing away one’s filth.

If one sees a deceased person washing himself before his burial in a dream, it means relief for one’s dependents and increase of their wealth after him. Giving a ritual ablution to a deceased person in a dream also means that someone will repent for his sins at the hand of the undertaker.

If a deceased person asks someone to wash his clothes for him in a dream, it means that he needs someone to pray for him, or to intercede on his behalf before his Lord, or to pay charity for the benefit of his soul, or to pay his debts, or to fulfill his will, or to do him justice.

If one does fulfills the deceased person’s wish and washes his clothes for him in the dream, it means the redemption of such a person.

Universal Landscape: Individuation and privacy.

Dreaming Lens: Were you in a bathroom? Were you trying to get to one? Was it a private bathroom, or a public restroom? Did you know the bathroom from your waking life? Was it from your past or present? What was your connection to the privacy available to you in the dream? Was anyone else there with you, or waiting for you to finish?

Personal Focus: Somewhere around two years of age in our culture, we come to the most challenging obstacle of our development: toilet training. After sometimes months and months of intense public focus on fecal production, a child gets to do something for the very first time—he or she gets to shut the door. This burgeoning sense of privacy and personal space is the first time we experience control over our immediate environment. The impact of this is so powerful that it remains imprinted on our psyche for the rest of our lives.

In our dreams, we return to this place again and again throughout our entire lives when entertaining issues of individuation, separateness, and privacy. A bathroom inside a home connects with personal issues, whereas one that is more public is revealing information about your outside interactions. Not being in the appropriate bathroom for your gender might be inviting you to explore or discover your own inner feminine or inner masculine. Not being able to get to your destination in time could indicate a pressing need for individuation to occur in your life. Hiding out in the bathroom could mean you are not complete with your self-discovery and are unprepared to face life as your new individuated self. Having to go to the bathroom and not being able to find one may be a call to action about how important it is to find some private reevaluation time. Decorating your bathroom may mean you are updating your sense of individual self to match your current life. The toilet is located in a bathroom. As such, it can relate to relieving yourself of the “shit” in your life that you no longer need.... bathroom/restroom dream meaning


Universal Landscape: A process of creating socially acceptable states of being.

Dreaming Lens: Were you bathing or was someone else? What types of structures were involved? Were you in a private or public place? Who else was present if you were not alone? What parts of your body were you washing? What was the state of the water?

Personal Focus: Regular bathing is a relatively new phenomenon in modern Western culture. Many older civilizations had bathing as a regular part of day-to-day living, however, early Christianity discouraged the practice as a way to deal with the perceived sinfulness of the naked body.

The impulse to bathe connects with a desire to be socially acceptable. Human beings are the only animals on the planet that actively remove their natural scent. As civilization began to modernize, we found it desirable to smell more pleasant and the practice has stuck. In this way, the primary symbolic meaning for any kind of bathing connects to this desire to be clean and available for social interaction with others. This can connect to unconscious feelings of dirtiness that are both literal and metaphorical. In what ways and in which areas of your life are you feeling unclean and in need of purification?

The health-related advantage to being cleaner was an almost accidental result of the practice of regular bathing. As such, this offers a secondary shade of meaning for this symbol connected to safety and the precautions needed to stay clean in all of your affairs.

Finally, remember that anything that involves water in a dream is going to connect somehow to issues of emotions. Using water to bathe might point to a need or desire to immerse yourself into the realm of your feelings in order to cleanse yourself of the pain that life sometimes brings.... washing/bathing dream meaning
