Minor irritation; hurtful words or ideas; harboured ideas which bring negative feelings or pain.
Symbolic of being angry at others over minor things, Matt. 7:5
Are you feeling injured? Inconsequential things are getting you upset. (In the Bible, one often sees a splinter in the eye of a neighbor, but not in one’s own.)
If one has a splinter he/she is allowing petty things to get the better of him/her.
Dreams of a splinter signify emotional injury that you have been carrying around unaware. You are dealing with a minor annoyance that causes you to be defensive and reactive. See Thorn.
1- In dreams, a splinter can represent a minor irritation. It is something which has penetrated our defences and is now making us uncomfortable. Splinters may represent painful words or ideas. YVc may be holding on to ideas which cause negative feelings.
2- To be part of a splinter group in a dream suggests feeling sufficiently strongly about something to break away from mainstream thought.
To hit something which splinters is to rccognisc that we are all composed of parts which make a whole.
3- The sense of belonging to a group of like-minded people can only come after we have recognised our isolation or, in some cases, fragmentation.
To dream of splinters sticking into your flesh, denotes that you will have many vexations from members of your family or from jealous rivals.
If while you are visiting you stick a splinter in your foot, you will soon make, or receive, a visit which will prove extremely unpleasant. Your affairs will go slightly wrong through your continued neglect.
