Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
ESSAY : What is the symbolic meaning of insects in dreams?

Bugs and insects may symbolise your own hatred of such things. Many people do not like slimy bugs and creatures. E.g.

"We are getting a pet dog but I am against it because I hate the thought of fleas."[Dream Dictionary - insects]

"My friends are going camping but I cannot stand anything like that so I am definitely not going." [Dream Dictionary - insects]

Bugs can refer to illnesses and infections. E.g.

"my girlfriend has just returned from holiday but she has got Strep throat so she is not likely to be wanting any visitors"[Dream Dictionary - flies down mouth]

"I have had a skin rash all the time I have had these insect dreams"[Dream symbol - covered by insects]

Insects can refer to problems and irritations within your life. E.g.

"I am getting problems everywhere. I hate school and my parents are getting divorced"[Dream Dictionary - wants help with bugs but father doesn't know what to do]

"I hate my neighbour who constantly plays loud music and is inconsiderate. In fact I hate where I live full stop."[Dream Dictionary - bugs]

Insects can symbolise irritating personal problems in you or in those around you. E.g.

"I realise its best not to start a relationship with a girl I know because right now I am depressed and have got lots of problems. It would not be fair to her"[Dream Dictionary - infestation of insects in house]

"I just bought a present for one of my supervisors. I wanted to do something nice for my other supervisor but she is so difficult to talk too. In fact she is a bit of a psycho"[Dream Dictionary - bugs in the weeds]

"I am trying to get back together with my ex girlfriend. She is trying to overcome some personal problems with alcohol"[Dream Dictionary - bug flying around]

"I have been worried about getting fat recently. Could this be the onset of bolemia? Have I got deeper problems "[Dream Dictionary - I throw up bugs]

"I was thinking about an old friend yesterday and how I had let lots of bad memories and misunderstandings get in the way of our relationship"[Dream Dictionary - using insecticide on cockroaches]

Insects are small and can get easily eaten up. They may symbolise powerlessness. E.g.

"I was playing with my band yesterday but really I know we were terrible. Everyone was polite but I know they hated us"[Dream Dictionary - insect gets devoured by grasshopper]
THE DREAM - I am talking with a friend. There are bugs and cockroaches everywhere. I take out some insecticide and spray it . The spray hits a dog which yelps.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been thinking about the old friend in the dream the night before. He had realised that he had let bad memories and misunderstandings get in the way of what had been a good relationship. They had lost touch.

DREAM ANALYSIS Dream soften relate to recent events and thoughts. If a person appears in a dream and you were thinking about them yesterday then try to see if the dream captures some recent feelings linked to that person.

In this case the dreamer had been thinking through bad memories. Surely the insects and cockroaches symbolise the bad memories and difficulties that had bugged the relationship.

The insecticide perhaps relates to the dreamers response to his friend. Perhaps he was starting to realise that he had overreacted and that his reaction had led to the relationship ending.

THE DREAM - I am throwing up bugs.

THE REALITY The dreamer had been worried about getting fat.

DREAM ANALYSIS Noone knows exactly what a dream means. But we can often tell what the themes are in your life. We can tell what is on your mind.

This dream clearly mimics bolemia. Throwing up is the main symptom of this disease. By coincidence the dreamer had been worried about her own weight. This is a simple coincidence. This is the kind of simple association which reveals what the dream is about.

The dream does probably not mean that she is bolemic. It merely means that she is looking at her own behavior. Just when exactly does a worry about getting fat turn into bolemia? Is this worry about getting fat reveal deeper problems? Is she acting like this because of some hidden disorder? She is thinking deeply about this issue. Making deeper connections.

Cleopatra Computer dictionary - relevant references
INSECTS : The dreamers own personal hang ups and problems. Thinsg that bug her.
THROW UP : The dreamer is worried about becoming bolemic

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I have been worried about getting fat. When do you become bolemic? Am I just acting normally or is there some deeper reason why I am thinking this way?"
