Are flies good or bad dream omens?

Not every single fly dream is a bad omen. The spiritual meaning of a fly connects the dreamer towards good flexibility, hinting at your ability to navigate throughout tough times. In essence flies symbolizes motivation & determination, its role being to push you forward until you achieve your goal.

Alternatively, files have been known in religious texts, folklore and literature as a negative symbol when they show up in abundance or in your dreams. They are known to go hand in hand with dark energy or spirits that still haven’t crossed over to the other side. This is why in dreams they never just show up buzzing around, instead they are often grotesque themes like coming out of your skin or seeing maggots.

But dreams love to use specific symbol to point to something in your life; the dreamer must metaphorically breakdown what exactly is a “fly”. Flies live for a very short time. They are easily killed. Consequently they are frequently used as a image of the transient and ephemeral nature of life.

Why is the fly in my house dream meaning?

To dream of a fly or flies in your house symbolizes negative thoughts or emotions that you need to let you. Houses in dreams are very symbolic because they are sort of like the dreamers mind or inner architecture; the fly is attracted to things that need to be either thrown out or put away. The dream of the fly in your house becomes a warning for you to clean up some aspect of your life that is either troubling you or something negative lingering around.

Meaning of flies on your food dream

Most dreamer don’t really grasp the spiritual meaning of food in our dreams; a powerful symbol that gives us energy and inner growth. Now when a fly is on your food in your dream it becomes a warning suggesting something negative is feeding off of your energy.

Soon the food will be left out if you are not able to figure out who or what the fly could represent in your dream. Rotting food are often symbols that you are not paying attention to something in your life. Decay or putrefaction in dreams symbolizes obstacles, things left behind or neglected. This was something that is supposed to give you the right nourishment to move forward in life, however this is not the case.

Flies and maggots dream meaning

To dream of maggots represent your negative emotions, feeing’s or situations that you have encountered, currently facing, or are about to go your way. Flies show up to tell you that this issue has been persisting and will only get worse if you don’t find the root of the problem. The location of your dream will help you find out where this could be arising from.

HELP… The flies are on me in my dream!

Whenever the dreamer is either being attacked or chased by flies it automatically tells you that you are not facing something. But what? Being chased in our dream by flies might suggest pestering thoughts, behaviors, urges, feelings that remain unconscious to you.

To dream of flies coming out of your skin represents hidden negative feelings, behaviors, energy, repressed emotions that are in you. The fly has been under your skin for a long time and your dream is either letting you know it needs to come out – or – it has now emerged to the surface to come out. Is the fly stuck or are you pulling it out? How you react to the fly will tell you how easy this issue will come out for you.

If you are dreaming of a fly stuck in your hair it represents minor hinderances that is stopping your own inner growth and wisdom.

Biblical meaning of fly dreams

There are 5 verses of flies in the bible: Exodus 8:21-23 · Psalm 105:30-31 · Ecclesiastes 10:1 · Matthew 23:23-24 · Exodus 8:18. Flies in the bible are bad omens that are connected with evil or the prince of demons. But like the bible we shouldn’t read into it so much and break it down in a metaphor.

Flies show up in unclean places, suggesting the gifts God has given you, one or two are not fully utilized and are thus rotting away.

If you think about it when God blesses you with friendship, job, relationship or even good health and you are not appreciative, flies may appear to symbolize the underutilization and neglect of talent or gifting.

In Ecclesiastes 10:1, the Bible says, “As dead flies bring a stench to the perfumer’s oil, so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.”  In our dream the  fly can represent foolishness can cause costly destruction. Alternatively, the fly could in fact be connect to gods wrath.

In Exodus 8:21 “If you do not let my people go, I will send swarms of flies on you and your officials, on your people and into your houses. The houses of the Egyptians will be full of flies; even the ground will be covered with them.”
