What does an abortion mean in dreams?

1. The traditional interpretation

A dream about experiencing an abortion can symbolize guilt, regret, or fear of consequences related to a decision or action you've taken in waking life. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It may reflect feelings of loss or missed opportunities. A dream about someone else going through an abortion, on the other hand, could indicate your concern for them, or it might reflect your own feelings of helplessness or inability to influence a situation. This dream isn't necessarily about physical abortion, but more about the emotional and psychological aspects of letting go or ending something prematurely.

An abortion can often be a difficult dream image to make any kind of definitive analysis about. To really know without any doubts, it would be necessary to get a deeper understanding of the dreamer's background and circumstances.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of undergoing an abortion may embody a Freudian manifestation of guilt or remorse, perhaps linked to a decision or action that has led to a perceived loss or missed opportunity.

With that being said, an abortion can be more complicated than that. This dream may also signify a subconscious fear of the repercussions of such actions. Conversely, dreaming of another's abortion could represent a projection of your own feelings of impotence or inability to alter a situation. It may also symbolize your empathetic concern for the individual. These dreams are less about the physical act of abortion, and more about the psychological implications of prematurely terminating or relinquishing something of significance.

3. The spiritualist's interpretation

Dreaming about undergoing an abortion can be a spiritual message about releasing guilt or regret tied to a choice you've made. It's a call to forgive yourself and let go of past actions that may have resulted in perceived loss. On the other hand, dreaming about someone else's abortion could be a spiritual signal of your empathetic concern for them, or a reflection of your own feelings of powerlessness. It's a reminder to trust in the divine plan and release control. These dreams are less about the physical act of abortion, and more about the spiritual journey of releasing and healing.
