Dream meaning of belly

To see your belly in your dream indicates that your are processing and integrating your ideas and feelings from the subconscious to the conscious level.

The belly symbolically holds repressed emotions and unexpressed feelings. Your dream may also be telling you to trust your gut feeling and intuition.

To see a pregnant belly represents emotions that are due to come to the surface. They can no longer remain suppressed.

To dream that you are stroking or touching a belly indicates that you are coming to terms with certain feelings. You are slowly confronting and acknowledging your repressed emotions.

To dream that you or someone has a belly piercing denotes your deep connection with your mother. Perhaps the dream is telling you to reconnect with your mother or that you need to be in touch with your maternal instincts. (See also: Abdomen)

The interior of the belly is invariably equated symbolically with the alchemic laboratory, or, in other words, with the place where transmutations are effected. Since these metamorphoses are entirely of a natural order, the bellylaboratory becomes, in a sense, the antithesis to the brain.

Your instincts and emotions are being expressed by this dream. It is in our belly that we experience our feelings and our gut instincts about what is happening inside us and in our environment.

When this is working well, the relationship you have with your belly is your great ally in navigating the world and knowing if you are safe in any given moment.

When the belly is compromised, such as being layered in fat, it is your instincts that are being blocked. If you are sick in the belly, there are consequences for past inauthenticity or holding back anger, rage, or sadness.

Belly button: Are you an innie or an outtie? Dreams of this vulnerable spot reveal how well your most intimate needs are being met.

If you show off your belly button, you feel ready to be openly vulnerable in an intimate relationship.
If something is wrong with your belly button, or it is missing, nobody is meeting your needs. You feel emotionally and physically neglected.
If you dream that you have a pierced belly button, or see someone else with a pierced belly button, you have the courage and desire to explore more daring and exciting contact in your intimate relationships.

If you dream of looking at your own belly, it portends a pleasant attitude toward your condition of life.

If you gaze at another’s belly, either a man’s or a woman’s, it is an omen of an achievement that will not be creditable but will bring you money.
