When you dream of eating, it is always important to do your best to remember what you ate, as well as other aspects of the event. For example, even if you were enjoying the food, but ate alone, then you may not have as many positive things to look forward to in the future. It is also important to correlate the quality of the food, as well as the quantity. Needless to say, if you, or others were cooking food instead of eating, these dreams will also have different implications.
Eating Dream General Meaning
If you dream of eating with others, you can look forward to a sense of personal well being, as well as happiness in your social and personal life. That said, if you dream of eating alone, it can indicate depression, a sense of alienation, and general loss. Regardless of who you ate with, dreams of rotten food, or food that did not taste good can indicate difficulties in the near future. That said, if the food was as enjoyable as the company, then you can look forward to happy times, good fortune, and good health in the near future.
How Eating Dream Symbol May Fit in Your Life
In many cases, a dream of eating is an indicator of how you feel about yourself, as well as various aspects of your own personality. When you eat alone, it can easily reflect feelings of depression and isolation. Without a question, if you correlate rotten or bad tasting food with an aspect of personality, you can most likely figure out which aspect of yourself seems to be bothering you the most.
Even though dreams of good food and good company tend to be good omens, they may still point to areas of your life that need some attention. For example, if you tend to be a loner during your waking hours, then this dream may indicate you need to socialize more. Fortunately, when you have a positive experience eating in a dream, you can look upon it as an omen that efforts to socialize more will result in good luck and well being. At the very least, you can look into engaging in some type of volunteer activity, or something else that will make you feel good about being around people more often.
A Sample Eating Dream Interpretation
Consider a situation where you and your co-workers are at a restaurant. As you order your food, one of your co-workers suddenly turns into a bohemian looking artist. This person seems so happy, you find yourself envying the sense of freedom and creativity. Suddenly, another co-worker turns into a peace activist, complete with a chain of flowers and headband. As you watch, one co-worker after another begin to transform into some of the most creative and spontaneous people in society.
Finally, your food arrives, and you find yourself wishing that you could be an animal rights activist. You look down at your plate, and see meat there. Rather than simply eat it, you inform the waiter that you are vegetarian, and wish to have something else. Your friends notice your dilemma and promptly offer to share there fruits and vegetables with you. As you accept the food, you notice that your hair is no longer short, and you are wearing the most beautiful shirt from a famous animal rights organization. Even though you do not have a mirror to look in, you know that you are now working at this organization, and having the time of your life
This particular dream indicates that you have good friends and plenty of hidden support for some cherished plan. Even if you are not thinking about getting into some form of activism, there may be many things that you and your co-workers agree on. Rather than go on leaving yourself feeling unfulfilled, you may want to begin asking your friends and co-workers about various volunteer organizations that may be of some appeal. No matter whether you decide to create a fund raising event, or some other venue, you are sure to enjoy socializing with your peers as you join together to achieve a common goal.
