Bathing dreams come to both Christians and non-Christians. A large number of people have come to me with requests for dream interpretation about bathing. This tells us that these dreams are rampant. 

For proper understanding of your dream, in this article, we will discuss the following:

  • Dream meaning of bathing outside

  • When you see yourself bathing in a dream
  • Dream of bathing with soap and sponge
  • Dream of bathing in public meaning
  • Biblical meaning of bathing in a dream
  • Seeing yourself bathing in dream 

Bathing dreams come in various forms to different people. Some see themselves bathing in a bathtub; some dream about bathing outside; and some dream about bathing in a dirty water, some dream about taking a bath in the river, and the list goes on.

When you see yourself bathing in a dream, you must not take such a dream lightly, as it speaks directly concerning what is currently happening in your life spiritually. 

Biblical Meaning Of Bathing In A Dream

Seeing oneself bathing in a dream can either be a good or bad omen, depending on several factors—like the cleanness of the water or bathroom; or the location within which the dreamer found theirself taking their bath.

The positive aspect of seeing oneself bathing in a dream has to do with the following:

  • Dreams about bathing signify spiritual cleansing. 
  • Bathing in dream can portray and ongoing work of sanctification that God is doing in the life of the dreamer
  • Bathing in the dream can sometimes signify deliverance from life problems, etc. 

If a Christian finds theirself bathing clean water in a clean bathroom in their dream, it's possible that they've encountered many problems and the Lord has finally heard their cry, and decided to take all their problems away from them. But the reverse might be the case if the water and bathroom in the dream were dirty. 

Dreams about bathing often speak of deliverance and purification from sin. What may likely follow is a better relationship with God and God's blessings.

James 4:8 KJV Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
We bath in our waking life so as to be clean, look presentable and become acceptable in the society. Also, when we come to Christ, we come as sinners who not only need redemption but only cleansing by his blood. 
Ephesians 5:25-26 KJV
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; [26] That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word.

Therefore, God cleanses makes us acceptable and presentable in His sight and also worthy of making Heaven. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Bathing Outside In The Dream

In most African countries, children often take their bath outside, in an open space, until they grow up into teenagers. On reaching the stage of adolescence, it becomes weird and a shameful thing for anyone to take their bath in an open space—and in the eyes of everyone.

As an adult, if you found yourself bathing outside the house in your dream, this tells that something is definitely wrong about that dream.

Genesis 3:21 KJV
Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

Remember that after the fall of man, and after man realised he was naked, God Himself made proper clothing and clothed them—to cover their nakedness and shame.

When an adult finds theirself bathing in the dream, they must understand that there is a careful strategy of darkness fashioned to bring them shame and disgrace. This may happen in various forms, including:

  • Loss of job
  • Marital failure
  • Health deterioration
  • Academic failure, etc.

In the book of Jeremiah 29:11, the Lord said that His plans for is are for good and not evil. It is the enemy who plots evil against us, in his effort to make us a plubic disgrace and laughingstock. But if God be for us, none can stand against us.

If you saw yourself bathing outside in your dream, it's time to start praying ruggedly, cancelling the plots of darkness against your life. 

Dream Of Bathing In Public

What does it mean when you dream about showering in public ? The meaning of dream of bathing in public is not far-fetched. When a person sees theirself bathing in the public, it means that the enemy has plotted to bring them disgrace and shame in every possible way. 

A dream of bathing in public could also be an indication that one's sin has been made known to many—which could likely affect their reputation. If the dreamer has been living in secret sin for a long time and has adamantly refused to repent, such dream may show up notifying them that their sin will be exposed, if they don't repent. 

Dreaming about bathing in public where there are passers-bys and onlookers often signify the plans of the enemy to bring embarrassment, disgrace and shame to the dreamer through whatever means possible. This kind of dreams should be met with serious prayers.

Dream Of Bathing With Soap And Sponge

If you saw a dream of bathing with soap and water, in an enclosed space, this is a good omen. This dream often means that the dreamer is cooperating with God to rid themselves of their sins and live a holy life. And in turn, God is help them overcome all their physical and spiritual challenges. These kinds of dreams often precede a breakthrough. 

Dream Meaning Of Bathing In A Dirty Bathroom

If you find yourself bathing in a dirty bathroom, this dream is not a good omen. It is an indication that the enemy has plotted to bring the dreamer many problems, and cause the dreamer to experience all manner of challenges in their waking life. 

Dreams about bathing in a dirty bathroom could bring setbacks, stagnation, failure at the verge of breakthrough and many other problems if not prayed against. 

Dream Of Bathing In The Market

If a person sees theirself bathing in the market in their dream, they must understand that there is an ongoing plot of darkness to bring them public disgrace is every way possible. This could end up damaging their reputation. This dream must be met with serious prayers and the effects cancelled. 

Dream About Bathing Clean Water

When one dreams about taking a bath with clean water, it speaks of spiritual purging and sanctification. Without the forsaking and cleansing from sins, there can't be spiritual growth. 

Therefore, this dream is an indication that the dreamer is experiencing the spiritual cleansing needed for them to grow spiritually

Psalm 51:7 KJV
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.  

After seeing such a dream, possibilities are that, the dreamer will begin to experience a better relationship with God. 

The Lord sanctifies us to prepare us for the ministry which He calls us to. And sometimes, His cleansing work upon us may manifest as taking a bath in dreams. 

2 Timothy 2:21 KJV
If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.  

We all should desire and seek to be cleansed and made ready for the Master's use. 

Dream About Bathing Dirty Water

Dreams about bathing dirty water could mean the following:

  1. An indication that one is wallowing in sin and needs repentance and sanctification. 
  2. Sometimes it as well symbolises blind initiation into evil covenants, covens and the occult.
  3. A sign of serious troubles that the dreamer is about to encounter.

If you happen to see this dream, know that it is time to sit up, live right and improve your prayer life. The dreamer might also want to embark on fasting and prayers to cancel the plots of the enemy against their life.
