This is a little embarassing to share but I've had these kinds of dream for so long and so often, I think it's trying to tell me sth.

It doesnt specify where I am everytime, but if i have toilet dreams, it's always like this.

- the place is digustingly dirty.
- it's usually a one toilet room.
- sometimes, there're poop around toilet., n always dirty walls.
- sometimes, the bathroom has no light, and a few times, it's in a public place where there's a lot of toilets, but very little privacy (like.. no doors, or half doors)
- sometimes, clogged toilet.

whatever the situation is, no matter how disgusting I feel the place is, I always end up pooping there.
and everytime i poop, there's always a lot. . u know. *blush @**@ .
sometimes overflow.

I've read some of the dream dictionary (under "toilet").

I never woke up because of the dream, and I never had to go to the bathroom.

interprets a lot concerning my emotions; releasing, holding it back, or need to be resolved.. but, hard as I try, I cant think of any emotions in me that's serious enough to make me have these dreams so often.

and I haven't/dont know how to find an interpretation that explains my. . combination of .. toilet.. .poop. . . . based. dreams.
hehe.

Dreams such as this, the overflowing of water based mechanisms, is dreampt by those seeking truth. It usually involves large, public (10 or more and sometimes infinite# of stalls), usually with doors that don't lock, and when is found there is still no privacy and it also begins to overflow. The TRUTH is what is being sought. It does not come easily. It is - excuse my modern day phrase - "wading through **** and scum". Seeking your truth is good. It shall not come without inconvenience or peril, but it will come. Strong and determined individuals have this dream often to remind them that the truth they seek may be as simple as getting out of the crap and moving on. Or it may occur many years apart as a reminder of belonging to truth vs. dung. Either way - feel blessed to have this dream. It means that you are seeking truth and purging the lies that bind you.

I have had this exact dream several times now and I'm actually kinda creepy to hear that others have had this exact dream!! I dream about some sort of college or high school gym with many many open toilets everywhere and I remember they are all dirty. I have a hard time integrating the meaning of it. I remember even the seats were too disgusting to sit on so i'd go searching for another and there were many to choose from. Very vivid dream too and its always this same exact dirty gymnasium. Anyone else having this? Maybe there are some similarities between us all?

I found this on a website author unknown I found it informative Imagine... walking down a corridor. An empty, silent, corridor in a school or a dorm. You are looking for a bathroom. Finally you recognize the door that indicates you have found what you are looking for. You feel a substantial amount of urgency. When you open the door you see a typical public bathroom with tile halfway up the walls and a line of stalls. You open the door to a stall and wham! you are met with a disgustingly dirty plugged toilet that has overflowed all over the floor. You try to avoid the abundance of human refuse and wet toilet paper that is spread across the floor. Almost finding this impossible you try another stall and are met with the same thing. This scene repeats itself until you find a stall, although still dirty and disgusting, one you can maneuver in on tip toe without touching anything. Luckily you wake up, although a bit distressed, and realize this was just a dream.

Sharing our dreams with our friends is a great way to get some laughter started and some intriguing conversation going. I would have to admit that one of my most disturbing dreams is the one described above. For years I kept this dream to myself, too embarrassed to ever mention it to even my closest friends. Although I had this dream maybe once every two years or less, I believed I was the only person in the world who had it and probably due to some disturbance in my early development.

During a particularly rambunctious family dinner when the subject of bizarre dreams came up I purged myself of my dirty bathroom dream. Believe it or not my sister and my Dad chimed in to admit they have also had this dream. My father bowed out of our post discussion which dissected the gory details. Amazingly, my sister and I shared similar images. We agreed the common feeling state we both shared during this experience was extreme horror and disgust.

What in the world does all this mean? Well, the following research was meant of course for my own use but also for all of you who have had a similar dream. I do believe we can learn about ourselves from our dreams and there are many dream experts out there.

Information from "The Strangest Dream...The Dreamers Dictionary for the 21st Century" by Kelly Sullivan Walden, describes that dreams of bathrooms symbolize releasing and letting go of toxic feelings and thoughts. In addition dreams of human excrement signify a releasing and letting go of what is in the way of your being fully in your power. Ms Walden also writes that dreams of dirt indicate that there is an aspect of your life that needs to be cleaned up and dreams of urine signify that a person is releasing negativity. A common theme here with all of these symbols is a letting go to start anew.

In George Fink's, "Dream Symbols A-Z", Mr. Fink writes that bathrooms are a place for cleaning up, and indicate emotional purification. Dreams which contain a toilet mean that we want to rid ourselves of burdens. He goes on to write that a dream about feces may be related to "financial matters or to evaluating the worth of someone's character." He writes that "it points to the dreamer's sense of order and generousity."

In "Parkers' Complete book of Dreams" by Julia and Derek Parker I read a particularly powerful statement which may be helpful, "Refuse is something that we want to dispose of . It may be something we no longer want or something foisted upon us by others.

In my dream sample the human waste or refuse is already there, left by someone else. I am faced with maneuvering around it. It could be considered a type of assault or just an uncomfortable barrier and represents people or situations which are keeping me from my full potential. It may mean I need to look more closely at those around me who have an important influence on me. The most positive aspect of the dream in my opinion is that I am able to work around all of the refuse.

I really find dreams fascinating and fully realize I am no expert. I'm sure I have only skimmed the surface on this one. (Dr. Freud would have alot to say). But isn't it interesting? At the least a little research into your own dreams will leave you feeling a little more hopeful and you may realize that you are not alone.

Hi, I have also had a very similar dream recurring throughout my life and just last night in fact. I think that Sister Mary is right on, but also I think that the dream could mean that we are trying to express something or connect in a deeper sense with our reality...but that we have no 'clean' outlet, whether that be the people that surround us or the spiritual environment that surrounds us is full of 'unclean' energy. Perhaps with the right people, and the right catering surroundings, we may fully reach our potential and then be able to expunge all the filth that we are trying to eradicate.

Wow! I have these EXACT dreams too! I always am like WTF!? I think I'm just trying to pee most of the time though. But yeah, there always dirty, one dream was in a tiny room w/ one toilet and it was like spewing crap and nasty gunk and then I had a dream where I was searching for a bathroom and then there was like this sort of public bathroom place, it seemed like this old run down gym bathroom stalls but yeah, kind of open concept and filthy and there was poop everywhere and overflowing and I was frantically looking for a clean one. Ughhh. It's so freaky! I'm so glad I'm not alone in these nightmares. So strange that two strangers can dream the same dreams!

ps - I wonder what it means too, I do tend to hold in how I feel and am afraid to express how I feel in fear of rejection from others so I don't know... Hmmm

i have the same kind of dreams, the last one was 2 nights ago. They are not related to my physical needs, and they don't wake me up either. The only clean toilet was impossible to reach, all the other ones were dirty and didn't have walls around them. The floor was flooded so i knew if i even tried to use any toilet my pants were going to get dirty. It was also dark and cold. I can't seem to find the proper interpretation to these dreams, and they happen ever couple of months or so...I'm sorry I can't help, but I sympathize with you.

Exact same dream experience here too! Right down to the old disused gymnasium/locker room toilets, dirty, overflowing, no walls etc. Often in my dream there are many toilets to try but upon trying each one they're all out of order or overflowing or whatever.

And also, like many here - it doesn't wake me up or make me need the toilet. But its a regular thing with the same theme - needing to poo and not being able to find a clean private toilet.

Its odd. but not uncommon apparently. I'd love to know the meaning of it.

I keep having dirty overflowing toilet dreams, too. I keep trying to pee in them too, but they're so disgusting it's hard to pee in them. Last night I had a dream where I was at my rich aunt and uncle's house and they had SO MANY toilets and they ALL overflowed. I felt like I couldn't run away from the water fast enough! I was also wondering what would possess them to buy so many toilets for one house and place them in circular patterns?
