Common Dreams Restroom

“When the servants came, they saw with surprise that the doors to the rooftop room were locked.
They said, “He’s probably relieving himself in the restroom.”
Judges 3:24 (MSG)

Restroom Dreams

The restroom or bathroom (depending on which country you come from) is a place where you can freshen up or relieve yourself. There is nothing more frustrating than dreaming about trying to find a toilet, and when you do finally find one it has no door or is set in the open in full public view. A toilet can appear in a dream when we are dealing with an issue or problem—something that needs to be eliminated from our life. It may be negative attitudes, selfishness, a damaging relationship or toxic thoughts that you wish to dispose of.


  • Crowded toilet
    You may feel ‘peopled out’ and need to get away from the crowd for some personal space and time out.
  • No toilet
    Perhaps the stress of life has overwhelmed you and you’re finding it difficult to ‘unload’ your burdens. You may be carrying a substantial workload and wish to ‘offload’ some of it. You may be seeking help and support but are feeling under resourced.    
  • Muddy & messy toilet
    This may imply you’ve made a mess of things, which you wish to clean up.
  • Overflowing toilet
    This may represent a negative attitude or situation, which you’ve allowed to ‘spill’ over, possibly affecting other people around you. 
  • Blocked toilet
    Perhaps you have bottled up your emotions over time and find it difficult to release your grief and despair. If in a dream there is a toilet that refuses to flush it is possible you may be unwilling to ‘discharge’ toxic attitudes such as resentment and bitterness.   

Life Application

Toxic thoughts or negative thinking can have a damaging effect on your emotions and general well being. The average person has over 30,000 thoughts a day and it’s safe to say not all of them will be positive.  Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV) states that “As a man thinks in his heart so is he…” Your words and your thoughts are connected to your heart. Luke 6:44 tells us that “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”

  • An offended heart may contain resentful and bitter words.
  • A rejected heart may contain thoughts that question your identity and confidence and sometimes these thoughts translate to words.
  • An abused heart may have become cautious and unable to trust. It may manifest itself through harsh words.
  • A grateful heart often contains kind and gracious words.
  • An honouring heart will likely manifest polite and respectful words.
  • An optimistic heart will generally bring forth words, which inspire belief and faith.
  • A forgiving heart will promote reconciliation and mercy.
  • A joyful and secure heart will often overflow with cheerful and contented words.

A change of heart will contribute much to cleansing and healing your thinking. As you deal with your heart issues, keep working on your thought life. Begin to develop a positive approach and outlook on life.

“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
