Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe


You may feel a need to cleanse yourself of some troubling thought, idea, pattern, habit, relationship, or experience.

If you are using the soap in your dream, you may get a clue as to what is troubling you by virtue of what part of your body you are washing. Soap cleans things up in the present; that which you want to clean up was created in the past. Therefore, soap in a dream may be responding to a desire to take care of some shame or regret from your past.
