Spiritual Meaning Of Pooping In A Dream
One of the most disturbing dreams that many see daily is a dream about pooping. If you are one of those who have seen this dream, you will agree with me that it wasn't a pleasant sight; neither did it bring a pleasant feeling. 

If you found this article while searching for the meaning of pooping in the dream, I can assure you that you are at the right spot to learn the meaning of your dream. Follow up as we discuss the spiritual meaning of pooping in a dream—as much as God enables us to. 

2 Timothy 2:21 ESV
Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.

It is normal for people to wake up perplexed, whenever to see a dream about pooping. A dream about poop is one of those strangest dreams out there. 

If you saw yourself pooping in a dream, I presume that you have many questions regarding that dream, which we'll trust the Holy Spirit to help us answer in this article. 

Pooping dreams come in various forms. For proper understanding of your dream, we will discuss this interpretation under the following:

  • Spiritual meaning of feces in a dream
  • Is dreaming about poop good luck
  • Spiritual meaning of defecating in the dream
  • Spiritual meaning of someone defecating in a dream
  • Meaning of defecating in a dream

It is likely that the dreamer may be tempted to conclude that they just saw a bad dream, the moment they wake up out of a pooping dream, but understand that not every dream about pooping has negative connotations. 

Pooping in the dream may be a good or bad omen. This depends largely on several factors within each dream. Some of such dreams could come from God, and some could be from the enemy. 

It is wise if we always discern and ascertain the source of our dream first, before we proceed to draw conclusions on what it means. 

That being said, it is not advisable to rush into conclusion that by seeing yourself defecating in the dream, something undesirable is about to befall you in your waking life, because that is not always the case. 

Spiritual Meaning Of A Poop In A Dream


Defecation is a biological process created by God for the discharge of solid waste from the human body. In one way or the other, all living organisms defecate. 

But poop is not something to have around or retain, it is something that is meant to be discarded. It is waste and impurity; no one wants their kids playing with it. 

If poop stays for a long time in an open space where people live and carry out their daily activities, it could turn out hazardous to human health. That is why a separate space is created for the discarding and decomposition of human excrement. 

2 Corinthians 6:17 NIV
Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”

To some people, mentioning or talking about poop is offensive and shameful. Despite the fact that everyone excretes, no one really likes to talk about it. But when it shows up in a dream, it becomes a thing of concern, making the dreamer eager to know what their dream means. Of a truth, such is definitely not a dream to ignore. 

Many people see recurring dreams of pooping, and that is something that causes so much worry. Understand that these dreams are not “just ordinary” dreams, they communicate something very important concerning the dreamer’s life. 

Since a dream is spiritual, we cannot say that a poop in a dream is exactly the same as what we have in the physical realm. Dreams are rarely literal; every dream comes with its own spiritual symbols. 

A pooping dream could mean that a positive transformation is taking place in the dreamer’s waking life. But on the other hand, a pooping dream could also reveal that a lot of things are going wrong in the dreamer’s life. 

A pooping dream from God often symbolizes the following:

  1. Spiritual cleansing and sanctification
  2. Spiritual purging from demonic and witchcraft deposits. 
  3. Getting rid of sin and bad habits
  4. Manifestation of the purifying work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Believer. 

Negative pooping dreams (which often comes from the enemy) symbolizes the following:

  • Shame and disgrace 
  • Setbacks
  • Attacks against the success and prosperity of the dreamer 
  • Spiritual manipulation to rob the dreamer of their blessings
  • Witchcraft manipulation to bring poverty and shame to the dreamer 
  • Pooping in public in a dream is often a vice of the enemy to cause series of problems in the life of the dreamer. 

Psalm 51:2 ESV
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!

God wouldn't want us to retain what is not good for us, that is why He purges us of them. On the other hand, the enemy always wants the opposite for us, that is why a dream about living with poop all around you can never be from God. Understand this. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Pooping In The Dream


Both God and the enemy could cause a dream of pooping manifest to anyone. The source of the dream matters, and this goes a long way to determine what the dream is all about. 

For instance, there are people who see themselves eating in the dream—then the moment they wake up to pray and return back to sleep, they happen to see their self pooping in the dream

Such a dream shows that their prayer was effective, and the Lord intervened to rid them of the demonic deposits the enemy fed them in their dream. In such a scenario, it is apparent that what they saw was a good pooping dream from God. 

But there are also dreams about pooping that comes as an attack and a manipulation from the enemy. Examples of such dreams can be seen as follows:

  1. There are people who find themselves touching poop in the dream. This is not a good omen. 
  2. Others see poop in the toilet. This is not a good omen. 
  3. Seeing poop everywhere around you in the dream is not a good omen.
  4. Pooping in public is a bad omen. 
  5. There are people who find themselves pooping in an open space, while people pass by, see them and sometimes mock them. This is not a good dream, but a very serious spiritual attack from the kingdom of darkness. 

We know that pooping isn't something that should be done in the eyes of everyone. It is only safe and comfortable to poop in an enclosed space, and not on the road where people are passing and watching. Unfortunately, there are many people who dream of pooping in such public places. 

I believe that after seeing such a dream, there is often that inner knowing that it is not a good dream. And yes, if you saw a similar dream and think that it is bad, you are right about that. 

Dream Of Pooping In Public Meaning


In the physical world, if a baby or an animal defecated in public, it would be understandable. People wouldn't care so much that such a thing happened. But it is totally odd and unexpected for an adult to poop in public. Such a sight would often be met with disdain; it would send a signal to the onlookers that something isn't right about that person.  

The same way, it is not right to find oneself pooping in public in a dream. If you saw yourself in a dream pooping in public, such a dream often symbolize;

  • An attack from the enemy, meant to bring shame, disgrace and mockery to the dreamer. 
  • A spiritual attack from the enemy to bring demotion to the dreamer. 
  • Spiritual attack against the progress and prosperity of the dreamer 

Most Africans can relate to this: 

There are people who often see a dream of them pooping in their family compound (even though they are no longer living there). Some find themselves pooping in a former place of living, and end up wondering what such a dream could mean. This is often the spiritual forces of backwardness at work against the dreamer. But their plots and manipulations against your life shall not come to pass, in the Name of Jesus Christ!

If you're one of those who constantly see yourself pooping in a former place of living in your dream, please start praying ruggedly against foundational powers, because they do not want you to prosper and move forward in life. They are after frustrating your effort to succeed in life. That isn't the kind of dream anyone should ignore and let slide. 

Dream Meaning Of Poop In Toilet


Pooping in the toilet in a dream can either be a good or bad omen. Look forward to a dream interpretation about toilets, because I'll be explaining more on this, in that new article. 

There are people who find themselves pooping in an open toilet, and despite their efforts to cover up themselves, other people keep passing by and staring at them. That is something that sounds shameful and such a dream doesn't come from God. It is part of the enemy's efforts to frustrate that person's life. 

Whereas, to some extent, pooping in a toilet that is in good condition can be a manifestation of deliverance from God

Dreaming Of Feces On The Floor


As I earlier said, there are people who see recurring dreams of feces all around them; some find feces all over the floor around them in their dream. Such a dream often reveals the evil plots of the enemy against the dreamer—purposed to bring them series of problems, hardships and setbacks in their waking life. 

Even in the physical realm, no one can comfortably live in the midst of poop spread all around them. Such a living condition could be extremely disastrous and uncomfortable. It is only the enemy who plots to sow such form of discomfort in the life of a person. 

A dream of feces on the floor often symbolizes problems, hardships, setbacks and every form of physical and spiritual disturbance the enemy has plotted to launch against the dreamer. Such a dream must be handled as serious as it is. 

Spiritual Meaning Of Defecating In A Dream


When a dream of defecating is from God, it always shows up in form of deliverance from God. 

But when a dream of defecating is from the enemy, there are always very many negative feelings and symbols surrounding that dream

If you keep seeing yourself in dreams defecating in places you aren't supposed to, you should inherently know that isn't a good dream. 

The moment you find yourself in a dream pooping in a former place of living, know that foundational evil and witchcraft powers have risen against you to attack and hinder your progress. 

If you keep seeing recurring negative pooping dreams, don't just fold arms and watch it continue. Go into fasting and prayers to destroy what the enemy is doing against you. Victory is always yours, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

Prayer Against Negative Pooping In The Dream


  1. Thank You precious Holy Spirit for revealing to me what the enemy is plotting against me in secret. 
  2. Thank You Father, for I know that if You reveal it, that always means You are on it. Thank you for the victory You have given me over the works of darkness. 
  3. By the authority of Jesus Christ, I come against every evil plot of the enemy against my life. I declare that they shall not manifest in my life, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  4. Heavenly Father, I belong to You and I know that Your thoughts and plans for me are always good. Therefore, I reject every plan of the enemy for my life. They shall not come to pass, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  5. I take authority over every demonic foundational powers risen against me to hinder my progress. Let their works begin to backfire now, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  6. I declare that I shall not see shame. Instead of demotion, I shall experience promotion in all my life endeavors, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  7. Power of God, locate and arrest every force of darkness fighting tirelessly to see my downfall, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  8. I come against and destroy the effect of every recurring negative pooping dream I have seen. They shall not manifest in my life, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 
  9. By the power of the Almighty, I break the cycle of recurring negative pooping dreams off my life, in the Name of Jesus Christ! 
  10. I declare that I shall excel and become all that Heaven destined me to be. No force of Hell can stop me, in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

Final Words On Pooping Dream


A pooping dream is not one of those dreams that anyone should allow to continue. Poop doesn't represent something nice and pleasant—both in the physical and spiritual. 

Notice that even when a pooping dream manifests as a result of God's work in a person's life, such a dream often comes to show that God is getting rid of something not so good from the dreamer’s life. 

Sometimes, people wake up from negative pooping dreams to start experiencing every form of misfortune, sickness and hardship because they saw nothing wrong with such dreams and did not pray against them. Don't be like them. Stay prayed up and victorious over the works of darkness.
