What are the spiritual and biblical meanings of seeing feces in a dream?


Few things are disgusting to every normal person; feces tops the list.

No normal person wants to stay close to feces or look at it.

Its stench is unbearable.

It can negatively impact one’s health because it is generally unhealthy.

Therefore, dreaming about feces is not a good sign.

Spiritually, feces have some meanings.

Understanding them will help you know where to channel your prayers when you see them in your dream.

In this article, we shall discuss some meanings of seeing feces in the dream, using biblical references.

Spiritual & Biblical Meanings Of Seeing Feces In A Dream:

Shamebiblical meaning of seeing feces in a dream

“And you shall have an implement among your equipment, and when you sit down outside, you shall dig with it and turn and cover your refuse.” (Deuteronomy 23:13)

Nobody wants to be seen pooping.

That is why a particular room is dedicated to it. Also, people do not want to see their feces or other people’s feces except on rare occasions when it is needed for a medical checkup.

That is why a water closet is built in such a way that feces drops and flows down the pipe or can be flushed without people seeing it. Seeing one pooing is shameful or embarrassing.

Pooing on one’s self is shameful. That is why it is a private affair.

Therefore, dreaming about seeing feces means shame.

Shame can happen in any way in the physical world. It does not mean that you will poo on yourself or see someone in the act.

It can be financial embarrassment or other forms of public shame that can bring reproach to one’s name and reputation. 

So, you must be careful after having this kind of dream because it suggests a heavy demonic attack from the pit of hell to put a dent in your name and reputation you have built for years.

The enemy is known to destroy (John 10:10). Do not give him a chance.

Povertybiblical meaning of baby feces in a dream

“He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill.” (Psalm 113:7)

Being on a dunghill spiritually means being in perpetual lack and poverty.

Seeing yourself heaps of feces around you in a dream signifies poverty. Poor people mostly ignore personal hygiene.

They channel all their resources toward survival.

So, any penny they get would rather be used to buy food instead of making their environment clean. Cleanliness then becomes a luxury.

Therefore, dreaming about feces is a reflection of your present reality or impending financial calamity.

Any position you are currently in requires prayers, hard work, smart financial decisions, and investments.

It could be that you are indeed languishing in lack and need God’s help to be lifted out of the mess you are in.

It could also mean you are wealthy but making certain financial decisions that will send you to the dunghill. 

A state of uselessnessdream of feces

“They shall be as dung on the surface of the ground; and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their dead bodies shall be food for the birds of the sky, and for the animals of the earth.” (Jeremiah 16:4)

Feces might have properties that make the soil rich with nutrients for farming. However, a significant number of farmers would prefer to use animal dung rather than human waste.

The sight and stench of feces can be unbearable and cause contamination and diseases because they carry disease-causing pathogens and parasites.

So, to a large extent, it is useless.

Jeremiah 16:4 portrays its level of uselessness. God says those who go against His command will be like feces on the surface of the earth.

Therefore, they will end up in a state of uselessness to themselves and the people around them. 

So, seeing feces in the dream might confirm that you are about to be irrelevant. It means that you are about to be dumped because you will be perceived as a waste or dead weight.

Remember that this is the enemy’s plot to destroy your life. Therefore, you must engage him in spiritual warfare. Do not relent in prayer.

James 5:16 says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

Sinbiblical meaning of dreaming of poop

“As part of your equipment have something to dig with, and when you relieve yourself, dig a hole and cover up your excrement. For the Lord your God moves about in your camp to protect you and to deliver your enemies to you. Your camp must be holy, so that he will not see among you anything indecent and turn away from you.” (Deuteronomy 23:13-14)

This meaning of feces in the dream is crucial because ninety percent of the time you dream about feces, God is trying to show you the state of your spiritual life.

Feces in the realm of the spirit are sin. Just as feces is disgusting, so is sin.

God hates sin; humans hate feces. Just as people run away from where feces is, so does God stay away from people involved in sin.

Apart from being spiritually holy, God also prioritizes physical cleanliness.

God’s Spirit cannot operate in a dirty environment. That is why the famous saying, cleanliness is next to godliness is true.

God is interested in your heart as much as your body. You are His vessels. Therefore, a vessel that is fit for use, especially by a king, must be pure through and through. 

The purity of the content of a thing does not matter; once its container is unclean, it creates a perception of uncleanliness that makes it undesirable.

Therefore, seeing feces in the dream means you are in sin. So, you must eliminate sin from your life to have true fellowship with God.

Feces are indecent and unholy, just like sin, and they can repel God’s presence, thereby making you open to the enemy’s attack.

The spiritual meaning of seeing plenty of feces in the dreamThe spiritual meaning of seeing plenty of feces in the dream

Since we have established that feces symbolizes sin in the spiritual realm, dreaming about it points the dreamer to the state of their heart.

The quantity of feces seen in a dream is symbolic. If you dream about plenty of feces littering a place, then it means you are deep into sin. 

Sin is sin.

There is no great or small sin. However, our level of involvement in sin differs.

Certain people are neck-deep into sin with the aim of not repenting.

The Bible refers to these people as stony-hearted (Ezekiel 11:19).

To have a heart of stone is to have blocked all your senses toward godliness and truth. It means to be resistant to the Word of God. 

Those in this category have no intention to repent.

They are mostly sworn atheists who detest anything related to Jesus Christ and righteous living.

They are also backslidden believers who have wandered far away from the Father’s love like the Prodigal Son. 

Seeing feces in the dream is not just a revelation about the extent of the filth in your heart.

Instead, it is also a strong message and warning to repent. It is a call to leave evil and sin and embrace God.

Dreams like this often signal an impending judgment or omen.

For believers who have decided to frustrate God’s grace upon their lives or sinners who have refused to forsake evil, God might judge them according to their deeds even as they are still living. Judgment does not only happen after death.

There are certain punishments sinners will experience here on earth because certain universal laws, such as seed and harvest time, are real. Therefore, those sowing evil will certainly harvest it in multiple folds. 

However, you can avert divine punishment by working towards eliminating spots of feces in your life.

Allow Jesus to wash you clean with His soul-cleansing blood, and you will be stainless. 

The spiritual meaning of seeing small feces in the dreamThe spiritual meaning of seeing small feces in the dream

Dreaming about little stains of feces or small particles of feces also means the presence of sin in your life. However, it indicates little sins.

The Bible warns us against little foxes that spoil the vine (Song of Solomon 2:15). These are seemingly little and harmless sins that we believe have little impact on our spiritual life.

For example, we categorize kissing out of wedlock as a lesser sin than fornication.

The Bible says we must be spotless. We must be perfect even as our heavenly Father is perfect (Matthew 5:48). So, there’s no excuse. 

Seeing small feces in the dream is usually a warning to a Christian who is still battling secret sins.

It is a warning to people like Judas Iscariot, who are still possessed by the spirit of greed despite being one of the twelve disciples.

It is a message to people like Peter, who still lie despite being part of Jesus’ inner caucus.

It is also a warning to people like David, who still engage in sexual sins despite being a man after God’s own heart.

We must deliberately fight for our lives because salvation is free, but deliverance is not cheap.

Jesus has saved us from our sins, but we must work, through the help of the Holy Spirit, to conquer our weaknesses and overcome secret sins so that we will not end up like Judas, who died prematurely, or Moses, who did not see the Promised Land because of the spirit of anger.

This dream is a good sign because it shows God loves you and is interested in your repentance.

Ezekiel 18:23 says, “Do I have any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?” says the Lord GOD, “and not that he should turn from his ways and live?” 

Therefore, Jesus loves you and is ready to help you conquer your battles against addictions and weaknesses, for His grace is sufficient for you, and His strength is made perfect in your weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9)

Spiritual meaning of seeing yourself in a place littered with feces in the dreamSpiritual meaning of seeing yourself in a place littered with feces in the dream

This is another symbolic dream. Seeing yourself in a toilet or feces dumping site shows that you are staying around sin or sinful people.

The Bible warns us against being unequally yoked with unbelievers.

Apostle Paul further asked believers, “For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16).

The answer is nothing!

Even though Jesus has given us the mandate to shine our light on the world and preach the Gospel of Christ, we must be circumspect in our approach.

We must understand the power of influence and learn how to create boundaries.

Sin is contagious.

The more we stay around it, the higher the chances to begin to manifest the fruits of sin. That is why the Bible says we must flee every appearance of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22)

We must be strategic and understand timing. Joseph did not stay to preach to Portiphar’s wife when she was trying to seduce him. Instead, he removed his garment and ran out of the room.

Giving excuses about staying around sin might make you end up in sin.

Therefore, seeing yourself in an environment littered with feces shows that you must watch where you go and the people you hang out with. Spend more time with godly people and watch yourself grow spiritually (Hebrews 10:25). 

The spiritual meaning of cleaning feces in the dreamThe spiritual meaning of cleaning feces in the dream

Seeing yourself cleaning feces in the dream shows the purification and forgiveness of sin.

It means that God is working on your heart to restore you from filth.

It does not matter how dirty you are; Jesus’ blood can make you spotless and as white as snow (Isaiah 1:18).

Having this kind of dream also means God is delivering and restoring you from shame, poverty, and the activities of the enemy.

It also shows that you are not willing to remain in that situation. So, you are fighting for your deliverance.

The Bible says faith without work is dead. Therefore, you are on the right track toward experiencing deliverance and a new beginning.
