Dreaming of food is relatively common for some people, yet others will dream of food hardly at all. Even if the dream is of seeing, trying to attain or having some food, the actual act of eating may not be dominant in the dream. So here are some answers to your food dream questions that what they actually means.
This may be because in waking life we pay little attention to eating, often doing other things such as watching TV or working while we eat, the textures, tastes and sensations of eating are not so noticeable to us, and the visual signals play a more important role.
What different kind of dreams signifies?
Dreaming of a lavish spread:
It can indicate general abundance in life, not just in terms of material comforts, but a sense of having as much as you need of everything: love, time, friendship etc. Or maybe the opposite is true, and we “too much on our plate” which can imply we need to simply our life a little!
Dreaming of an empty table or empty plates:
It can indicate that how we feel like we are not getting the nourishment which we need in life or we are missing out on something that is important to our well-being.
Sharing food in a dream:
It can be a very rewarding feeling, creating a sense that there is something of value we are able to offer to others. In waking life this may be someone we are caring for, providing guidance, assistance or emotional support in some way.
To be offered food in a dream:
It can be our subconscious mind trying to give us a gift, so if we have influence in such a dream we should try to accept it. It may not be immediately obvious what this gift is, but just as food in waking life give us energy, makes us stronger, provides immunity from diseases and helps us to grow, so too can our subconscious mind “feed” us psychologically.
Food dreams ask us to consider what is healthy for us, what sustains us and how we can share with others. In waking life, if we start to pay more attention to what we eat, to savour the taste and be consciously grateful for what we have, our dreaming mind will recognize this, and is likely to reward us with dreams of delicious experiences and abundance.
