Belly Dream Meaning: From 16 Different Sources

Your instincts and emotions are being expressed by this dream.

It is in our belly that we experience our feelings and our gut instincts about what is happening inside us and in our environment. When this is working well, the relationship you have with your belly is your great ally in navigating the world and knowing if you are safe in any given moment. When the belly is compromised, such as being layered in fat, it is your instincts that are being blocked.

If you are sick in the belly, there are consequences for past inauthenticity or holding back anger, rage, or sadness.
