We all got to go; hence, defecating will appear in our dreams. Even if it’s a natural part of life, there are some people who will feel uncomfortable about this post. However, dreams about poop are very common. The following quote from my book Learn the Secret Language of Dreams sums it up nicely:

Pamela Cummins author, dream interpretation quote

Please remember that everyone’s dream symbolism is different; therefore, one symbol can literally have thousands of meaning depending on the dreamers: past experiences, obstacles, relationships, upcoming events, and emotions in the dream. These following seven poop dream meanings are for the general public:

  1. Letting go.
  2. Holding on.
  3. Cleansing your issues.
  4. Feeling grossed out.
  5. Reminding you that sh*t happens.
  6. Alerting you to intestinal health problems.
  7. Cleaning up someone else’s messes.

Feelings In Dreams

Feelings always play a major part in your dreams, which you can learn more about in these two blogs Emotions in Dreams, Aids in Dream Interpretation and Feeling Emotions in Dreams. Here’s an example to showcase this point with.

After you defecated in a toilet, people walk into the bathroom looking at your poop and some are holding their noses.

  • Embarrassment could mean you don’t want people to know about your issues or bodily functions.
  • A sense of relief may indicate that you can stop hiding who you are and be yourself despite what others think.
  • Anger might be a signal that you don’t want people to know about your dirty laundry.
  • Feeling proud can be symbolic that you no longer care what people think about you.

Not Coming Clean

There are many types of poop dreams; however, a common one is no matter how much you wipe your butt with toilet paper, it’s not coming clean. Which can mean the following:

  • You feel dirty about yourself.
  • You have more issues to resolve that you may be denying.
  • You need to stop being so rough on delicate problems.
  • You have to stop trying to be perfect and accept the imperfect parts of yourself.

Overflowing Toilets 

Another dream people have about poop is overflowing toilets that can be symbolic for:

  • You’re not dealing with your problems.
  • You take on others crap.
  • You’re full of sh*t literally or symbolically.
  • You’ve plumbing issues at your home.

Other People’s Poop

The last common dream that I will mention is when it’s other people’s poop. Which could be about:

  • Your child finally went number two in the toilet.
  • You allow others to crap all over you.
  • You’re standing up to abuse from others.
  • You’ve realize that it’s their poop and not yours.

As you can see, your poop dream can have many meanings.

  1. hell, when I dream about going to the bathroom it turns out to be a signal from my subconscious that I need to get up and use the bathroom…

    1. You are describing an environment dream, George. Which I touched upon with the dream message that I gave for overflowing toilets can mean you’re of sh*t literally or symbolically. The urge to urinate is a huge theme in environment dreams, too. Hmm, I thought that I did an entire post about environment dreams for my website, but I didn’t, so it’s on my blog to do list.

  2. I dream about when I go to bathroom to poop, then I rush to my friends and I felt I didn’t need to finish to poop.

  3. I dreamt cleaning for my pregnant neighbor’s bathtub and came across feces n I cleaned without feeling disgusted

  4. I dreamt I was at Andrew Cuomo’s house (old not a mansion) a weird hole in the wall sideways toilet you had to step up to – door wouldn’t close – I had difficulty pooping – only little bits at a time- AND wiping was difficult – used so much toilet paper – got some poop on my hands 🤮

    1. Interesting… This dream could have a few different meanings. I would suggest reviewing your life situations and how you respond to them. If you need further assistance, please check out my dream interpretation services.

  7. I poo in my pant in front of someone that is to help me. Try rushing to suppose toilet it turns out it is not a toilet. I rushed out told my sister to clean the stain, she asked for paper from me, was trying to get the paper when I woke up.

  8. Hello Pamela
    I dreamt I was sitting on the toilet doing a pee pee when suddenly a man came in and tried to push me off the toilet so I held my ground then he just pooped next to me but some of his poop went on my foot? My feelings were mixed: firstly I felt empowered by standing my ground but then disgust when I looked at my foot! I’ve just commenced schema therapy for childhood trauma issues so this dream is very interesting as I usually do not recall my dreams! Thank You!

  9. I dreamed of sitting in the toilet infront of few ladies i could not really recognize then there is no toilet paper. Then when people started to eat outside i was wiping infront of the ladies that was sitting with me, but there was no mess.
    When i got home i found my boyfriend having wet the bed for the second time not even knowing that he had wet the bed what does all this mean

  10. I had a dream I was in the bath with my friends girlfriend and I accidentally shit, in the bath, what does this mean?

  11. Weirdest dream I’ve ever had. Last night I dreamt that I thought I was pregnant so I laid down to show my mother and sister the huge bump on one side of my body and my mother says “that’s not a baby, that’s a full roll of toilet paper” End dream. What does this mean? Can’t find anything that makes sense.

    1. Thanks for sharing your dream, Michelle. Off the top of my head, I can think of a couple of meanings. I would be happy to analyze your dream once you purchase a service. As stated in the blog, I don’t interpret dreams (meanings of dreams) in the comment since this a paid service.

  12. The poop in my dream came from an old woman. I was at an old friends house and she had an aunt it grandma who is senile. She came around us naked and when she walked past us, I got the whiff of poop and realized she shat on my pant leg. The left one. I had to clean it up and take the clothes off. Not sure if this also counts but my friend went to grab me a towel and I saw her throw up all over the floor and it looked like more poop but with little marshmallows in it, which then caused me to throw up a little bit after watching her. My vomit looked just like hers. The weirdest and strange I’ve had so far.

  13. I dreamt that my husband was literally picking his butt and sticking his fingers in my face telling me to smell it. And then took my blanket and wiped himself with it and threw it at me. I started yelling at him in the dream and awoke actually yelling at him saying “what does that have to do with anything?” Have no idea what this weird dream meant…maybe you do lol
