In some ways our personality or identity is like a plant which feeds from the most unlikely material to produce beautiful leaves and flowers.
The plant can transform manure into living leaves and petals. Our identity feeds on experience and information, some of which may appear uninviting, painful or unwholesome. In fact our experience may be all of these, and be depicted in dreams as manure, and if not put to our roots—our process of becoming aware of things in an intensely felt manner which links feelings with intellectual insight—remain a disintegrating influence. Learning processes which pile intellectual information on children or adults without helping them to allow their deep feeling responses, are piling manure on the psyche while cutting off its roots. Personal disintegration is the result.
Hard labor, dirty work, or being admonished by God, Ezek. 4:12
See “animals” and “bowels”
Vision: Looking at manure (a pile of it) means great success in business affairs.
The bigger the manure pile, the greater your wealth. Spreading manure: pending actions will have great results. Stepping in a manure pile means good luck. Take advandage of the opportunities that are coming your way. Toiling in manure: success and wealth through hard work. See Excrement, Mud.
Depth Psychology: Manure/garbage can create something new. Past experiences make it possible for you to grow in a positive way and develop your personality.
(Dung; Excrement) Manure represents money for one who eats it, or for one who collects it in his house or in a barn in his dream. Any animal excrements that are used to fertilize the soil, or if they are used as fuel represent profits when seen in a dream and particularly dried dung. Pigeons’ droppings, or the refuse of any type of fowl in a dream represent unlawful money. Cow dung in a dream is a sign of prosperity and a good harvest for farmers only. (Also see Droppings; Dung)
To see manure in your dream suggests that you are learning from past experiences. You are drawing from those experiences and putting it to use in your current situation.
To dream that you are cultivating the soil is a good sign for those in subordinate situations, but it is not so fortunate for the wealthy.
1. Doing something unpleasant yet positive to make a dream grow.
2. Signal that difﬁcult means are needed to make things grow.
3. A euphemistic term in a dream that expresses one’s reaction to what one is hearing.
4. Desire to grow things (become a “farmer”).
Dreams of manure symbolize your connection to the cycles of life, and that you are realizing that your challenges are giving rise to new growth, wisdom and power.
1- Some of the experiences which we have to go through can be painful or downright unwholesome.
If we do not manage to understand what has happened to us and make use of it as part of our growth proccss, we can often find that those experiences remain within our subconscious and cause difficulty later on. These bad experiences may appear as manure within a dream and alert us to the fact that we should be breaking down our problems and making positive use of them.
2- Manure can represent something which is disintegrating in our lives.
To be aware for instance, of a pile of manure in an inappropriate position would indicate that we have something in our lives which will have to disintegrate, to change form before it can be used properly.
3- Manure can be seen also as the prelude to spiritual breakdown. This docs not have to be a negative thing as a rebuilding process is often what is required to enable us to find solutions to current problems.
To dream of seeing manure, is a favorable omen. Much good will follow the dream. Farmers especially will feel a rise in fortune.
To dream that a man manures or cultivates earth, signifies melancholy to those that arc not of such a condition; but to laborers it signifies gain and a good crop.
This is a lucky dream, for it presages enrichment through hard work.
Cleaning manure out of stables is a sign of a new opportunity.
