Are you dreaming of cannibals?
Cannibals in dreams mimic very similar patterns like zombies because they feed off of humans. But dream cannibals are not really cannibals but the people in your life who feed off of your good energy, only to put you in a negative state of mind.
Known as energy vampires are people who — sometimes intentionally — drain all of your mental battery juice. They love to feed on your willingness to pay them attention and care for them, leaving you exhausted and overwhelmed. Energy vampires can be anywhere and anyone, in fact they can even be you without you realizing it – though your dream would make sure and tell you though its symbols. They can be your partner, coworkers, or your even best friend.
Your dream encourages you to find out who the cannibal might be and how to naturalize its toxic behaviors.

What does it mean when you dream about getting eaten alive?
When we metaphorically think of the act of consuming another individual of the same species as food we must pay attention to our surroundings. To dream of being eaten alive suggests whoever is feeding off of your energy remains unconscious, though may receive clues such as locations, specific emotions, and where they might be interested in eating you first.
Locations help pinpoint the root of the problem. For example, to dream of being eating alive at work usually points towards your coworkers, whereas in your house connects the person to the psyche/mind or inner architecture; a symbol that implies your behaviors or cravings end up devouring you in the long run. Alternatively, dreams about eating yourself represents depleting your own energy – a connection between negative traits and behaviors you are unable to stop.
If you are witnessing cannibalism in your dream it suggests you are unable to stop or not wanting to get involved between a weak person and their attackers.

Are you eating a baby in your dream?
Typically, seeing a baby in a dream signifies “new growth, warmth and new beginnings,”. Though it becomes a negative symbol in our dreams when we are consuming something that can metaphorically grow within ourselves. By eating a fetus in our dreams suggests an unconscous attack on sabotaging new growth within your life.
Cannibalism dream meaning Bible
Cannibalism is in fact mentioned in the Bible (Leviticus 26:29; Deuteronomy 28:53-57. Although there is no direct statement that says, “Thou shalt not eat human flesh,” the obvious indication from Scripture is that cannibalism is considered to be a terrible and vile act.
In our dreams the biblical meaning of cannibalism in our dreams represents an inhuman act of desperation by feeding of of others. Since the Bible often uses parables and metaphors like our dreams, it might be related to the toxic people in our lives that feed off of us in some way.
