What Does It Mean When You Dream about Lice?

Have you ever had lice before? Then you know for a fact it’s a really icky feeling, and everyone wants to avoid you. Dreaming about lice can be just as traumatizing – at least until you wake up.

Is there anything at all to lice dreams? Are there deeper meanings you should be on the lookout for? Let’s see.

1. There’s a situation or person you want to distance yourself from

As we noted, no one wants to be near anyone who’s got lice, for obvious reasons.

If you’re dreaming about them, it’s either you want to put a gap between yourself and something, or someone, or your dream is a precognitive warning from your subconscious mind that you need to give this thing or person a wide berth. Check to see who or what you’ve been feeling uneasy about recently, in your waking life.

2. You’re very frustrated about something

Is there something not going well in your life? Maybe in love, or at work? Is the situation a bit of a “head scratcher?” Well, guess what else makes you scratch your head. Lice! Dreaming of lice is a sure sign that you’re really frustrated.

Perhaps you’ve been trying to make a go of things, to keep a sunny disposition. Your subconscious mind isn’t deceived though, and is showing you through the lice in your dream, that you need to be honest with yourself about how you feel, if you want to move forward at all.

3. You’re being warned to be careful with a new business

It might be you’re about to start your own business, or branch out into something you haven’t done before. A dream about lice is a warning that you just might find yourself disappointed with the outcome.

So before you go ahead and take the plunge, be very certain that the rewards are worth the risk you’re about take. If not, then maybe hold off on the business for now, or look for something else to invest yourself in.

4. You’re feeling uneasy about your health

If you’re dreaming of lice, and of recent you have been concerned about your health, then the dream could simply be a reflection of your anxiety.

You know for a fact whether or not you could be doing better for yourself, in terms of your lifestyle. If this has been bothering you, even a bit, then you definitely want to get yourself checked out. It couldn’t hurt, could it?

5. You are ready to get rid of everything that does not serve you

If you dream about picking the lice out of your hair and tossing them, then this is a sign that you’re ready for change. You’re ready to remove everything that does not contribute to your well-being from your life.

If you’re not, then this is a sign from your subconscious that you had better get started on that. Everything that is an irritation, or an anchor, has got to go, and now is the absolute best time to begin the purge!
