  1. Hi, I dreamt that I was sat at my desk in my room. My laptop was on, but I don’t recall working. My window was open and it was a hot summers day. My hair was loose / down and I felt like there was something crawling on me. I reached up with my hand, and there was a gorgeous beetle there – red, yellow and green, intricately patterned. It was rectangular and had pale yellow legs. I thought the beetle was beautiful in my dream, but I didn’t want it on my hair! So I put the beetle on the end of my bed. There was a second beetle on me too – identical to the first. That one ended up crawling across the floor. I remember my mum coming into my room at one point, and I told her that I had beetles on me, but I don’t recall anything after that. I just remember feeling bewildered as to why there were beetles on my hair, but I wasn’t disgusted or upset.

    Please could you let me know what you think this dream means? I’ve read a lot of things about beetle interpretations in dreams!

  2. My dream started with me lashing out at my mom, trying to ‘hit’ her but not making contact…Then while still feeling the frustration, A large (about 2″) black beetle appeared on my kitchen floor. As I was trying to sweep it out it went between my fridge and cupboard.Then my brother appears and when I got it out he picked it up and holding it, put it on my face. I was frantically trying to stop him and then it fell down onto my neck-I could actually feel its legs moving on my neck- I then woke and swatted ‘it’ away, and feeling very anxious before going back to sleep. This is the first dream that I have had that was so vivid and intense in a very long time…Am I in some kind of trouble? What is the message here please. Thank You

  3. In my dream, a middle eastern man was playing with a beetle. Allowing the beetle to move freely on his hands and in between his fibgers, almost cherishing it. Is this a good sign??

  4. I dreamt of a giant brown beetle getting ready to crawl on me while I was asleep I woke up and knocked it off the bed. It had a huge body but the mouth was tiny I couldn’t see the tentacles. After I woke up from my dream I made sure I was under the covers and went back to sleep soundly. Pleas interpret. Thank you

  5. Hi my dream what about I was outside with the family and then all of a sudden there were beetles flying everywhere I try to run away but two went inside my left ear and five on my right arm and like 2 or 3 in my left arm. As well there was some one that help to take them off first it was the two of my ear then my right arm he never got to the left arm because he decided to take off the beetle on his feet. What it mean I don’t understand

  6. I had a dream I’m in my apartment Restroom and a black beetle twice the normal size crawls out from a shirt on the floor. I’m bear foot and at first I thought it was a scorpion buti noticed it didn’t have a tale. I want to step on it but again I’m bear foot and there were only some sandles on the floor. I’m not scared of bugs except spiders but for some reason the beattle scares me and than I woke up. Ivy never dreamed of beetles before this day.

Why?

  8. I had a very simple dream.. I saw very clearly and just this….a golden beetle… It was like looking through a papertowel role at it…it did make a clicking sound with its wings

  9. I walked through a room and bunch of white bugs fell on me as I ran out of the room I stepped into pile of black beetles but I shook everything off and woke up what does that mean?

  10. Well I had a dream about me having a big beetle as a pet but then I didn’t want it anymore it was disgusting after what does that mean?

  11. I just woke up from a very odd dream. It started with me pretending to be a guy (im a girl) in a military school. I was standing in the shower stall and as soon as I finished washing I wrapped a towel around my lower waist. A female janitor was cleaning in the bathroom and when she saw me she just stopped and stared and said that I was the most beautiful man she’d ever seen. Then the bathroom started filling with the other guys from the school. all of them were laughing and joking and all of them seemed nervous around me. I returned to my dorm and Met a hyper girl I know in life as kate except in the dream she wasn’t overweight anymore. we were roommates. Out in the hall of the dorms I saw some of my friends and they all were really happy to see me but for some reason they were scared of me. Every time I looked them in the eyes they looked away. (in real life they cant look me in the eye either I have creepy blue eyes my friends say their penetrating like I see everything). the hall way gets crowded but I can move easily among them. Im moving fast like im gliding and all of a sudden I grab my friends arm he was trying to get away from me. the crowd stops and begins converging on me but instead of hurting me their trying to pull my hands off trevor, they’re telling me I’m hurting him. I run out of the hall to my room and out the sliding glass door to the yard. the yard is filled with day old snow and the ridge on the edge of it is not snow covered. Their is someone watching me and I feel the need to show him myself. except instead of talking to him or going near him, I burst into a flurry of speed that feels like a flashback and when its done there are two bloody tracks going across the snow that lead to the ridge. on the bottom of the ridge are two bodies a man and a woman they look like they have been their for a few days but don’t smell. the scene disappears and the snow is gone its spring and green everywhere. I feel the boy from earlier still watching me he seems shocked and I feel satisfied that he is afraid of me he should be. I feel so powerful like a cheetah about to take down its pray. then I remember I have to be with someone they need me tonight. my friend that needs me comes running into the open and all of a sudden burst open and turns into a beautiful grey wolf. wolves are often part of my dreams lately. I realize that if I don’t change as well he’ll kill me so I begin to change as well as first I think for some reason expect to change into a dog but instead I morph into an ENORMOUS bigger than the wolf sized black rhino beetle with glowing red eyes. It and the wolf start playing and I feel content I love the wolf he as a human is my bestfriend. but the boy from earlier is still watching I feel like everything I do is seen by him god i hate this boy its a good thing I scared him he seems shocked. I saw everything past me coming out side to the snow from the outside like i was watching a movie. I remember it vividly and when I think about its it starts playing in my mind again I feel that if i don’t understand what it means and don’t act on it I’m going to be left behind.

    1. oh and I remembered that in the beginning when I looked like an adonis reincarnation that the entire time I was thinking how funny it was going to be when they finally saw the real me the entire time I felt like a woman in this beautiful mans body. I don’t feel like it was me saying when im older that im going to be more beautful I’m not ugly or fat or guy looking. I don’t have a problem with the way I look so I don’t understand what it could mean. I just texted my BF and he says to ignore it but i don’t think i should

  12. Well me an my boyfriend had a argument the nite before an made up last nite an I had this dream where I was in my liveing room an a friend come from stealing she came from outside took of her jacket all of a sudden I see one beetle looking bug crawl on my sofa near my sleeping baby then I see one two crawling on the floor then more an a few starting coming but everywhere I kept looking I kept seeing one of my friends was just boxing it of the other was shaking it of I was the most scared an disgusted they were long as well it was horrible an as in real life I think I got a phobia of any crawling insects anyway so my reaction that I would of done is exactly the same as my dream what do u think that means is that a bad or good sign

  13. I had a dream I took my dog to the vet for a check up and some woman who didn’t work there squealed and was holding a flea comb and said my dog was infested. I looked at the parted hair and there was a zit filled with baby beetles and larger beetles running away from me. I woke up really upset and couldn’t shake it for a while.

  14. Well my dream is simple i just dreamd that i had a beetle in my hair it felt so real! I just toke it out and threw it and i wokeup what does it mean its happen twice now.

  15. I have a phobia of beetles and I dreamt in one dream that I was driving and my best mate was sitting in the back throwing beetles at me, knowing that I have a phobia and causing me to be hysterical and almost crash. Also, I had a dream I was lying on a beach and my brother came and put a huge beetle on my leg and I went hysterical but could not scream at him to take it off, he stood laughing at me. What could these mean? :s

  16. I had a dream that I saw a big giant beetle looking bug. I tried to step on it and remembering I was waiting for the pop. But it just would not squish, eventually a smaller bug came out if it and when I tried to kill that a smaller one came out and ran into a crack in the floor. I woke up with a feeling of dread and have not been able to shake it.

  17. hi. um i had a dream about a bettle. its starts with me standing without a shirt on and the one bettle crawls along my back and neck. the weird thing is it looks friendly but i grab him with my right hand and look at him, right after i crush him and i wake up. can someone tell me what this means?

  18. I had a dream in which there were beetles and bugs, I think they were bed bugs all over me and I was taking them off, but they were spreading I was even cuting my clothes and hair just to get rid of them. The dream felt very real. I woke up feeling very scared. Can you guide me Dream master.

  19. I don’t remember much of my dream, but what I do remember is leaving the front door of my childhood home and seeing a massive spiderweb with millions of spiders outside the door. Having arachnophobia, I walked around them and saw a spider trying to fight a beetle. The bluish-green beetle backed up and lunged at the spider ultimately devouring the thing. I woke up feeling relieved but in seeing the interpretations of spiders and beetles in dreams, maybe it wasn’t a good thing.

  20. i wenthrough some bad times lately ending up in hospital after a drug overdose emotional situations with family and dealing with my depression iv had crazy nightmares that are still there when i wake up. in 1 night i woke up 6 times and kept slipping back into nightmares in one i was covered with black beetles and small ones all crawling overr my arms on my chest towards my head i tried brushing them off. but what does this mean?

  21. I can’t quite remember exactly how my dream was not sure if I was laying down or standing I’m pretty sure I was laying down. but I just remember that the beetles was covering me from my feet going up and I couldn’t move my hands or legs.

    I couldn’t fight them away at all and it was like after they covered my whole body, face and all after I couldn’t breath. it was like all of a sudden I was looking down watching my self covered and watching them running all over me like they was fighting to get inside.

    but as I was over myself watching this I still was able to feel them on myself that I was watching it was still like I couldn’t breath because of them it was like I couldn’t wake up. it just kept happening in front of me seem like never ending but when I did finally wake up. I still had loss of breath but the next night I had a another one not as bad but I was able to wake myself up faster.

    then 2 nights after that I started to have one but I was able to wake my self up right away what does this beetle dream mean any more really don’t even want to sleep

  22. I had this dream last night, in my dreams i am awake, but then suddenly i noticed that there are beetles of different sizes all over, others are turned-over while many are just there not moving or crawling. But then, i am not alarmed or afraid whatsoever, i just wondered where they come from! what does this mean? thank you in advance

  23. In my dream, i opened doors infinite doors. But the last one opened to a land of white and light. There a beetle as a buttle punched my back came out from my heart, it was huuge and it was golden. It rested there for a bit then became a swarm of beetles and they were big, the rhinoceros kind. Then all this golden beetles flew away. leaving a dusty golden trail behind.

    Can someone help me interpret this one?

  24. I had a dream of me laying down on the grass and bugs biting me. Then it switched to me running and I made it around my house I think and the bugs were everywhere as I ran away from them. I took them off my body and was freaking out. They were on the back of my legs one on each leg, my shoulders, and back. Only one on each side. As I took them off they returned immediately so I finally took them off as I was running and crushed them so they wouldn’t return. I ran inside and saw my mother and a real old family friend who is younger than me sitting in my kitchen eating. I asked my mom if I had any marks and she said yes, you got bug bites and are bleeding. We conversed for a little and she said she needed to take a shower and then I told her I do I have bug bites. I went upstairs and woke up.

  25. well ive been having dreams lately and in every dream i notice black beetles…they might be jus crwling around the floor but in one dream i remember my son was crawling around ad the beetles were jus crawling around with him it creeped me out but i wasnt afraid i didnt want to harm them?/? what does this mean???

  26. I had a dream in which I was with people from house eating cheese. Everything was fine until I got to the end of the cheese and inside that last piece there was a black beetle, but I wasn’t afraid, I was really disgusted, but it was really weird. I was able to ses the crab completely moving (its antennas and mouth), but It was like if the crab was trapped by the cheese. What could it mean??

  27. Wow..the interpretation of beetles in dreams is incredibly accurate for me..”In relationships, no matter how hard you work at building a strong foundation, your significant other is always antagonizing and looking to weaken the bond.”

    I had had yet another argument with my husband and wanting to just get away, so I went to bed early and while I don’t usually remember my dreams, I do remember seeing a beetle in it last night..my husband takes every chance he gets to try and control me, not gonna happen.

  28. In this particular dream, I believe that the beetles are a good sign.

    There are some things in the dream to support this:
    1. The beetles came out of your comforter after you got out of bed. The implication is that they were there all the time. Thus, they help you with your dreams and, by extension, help you explore the dream world, which would include the lower levels of the unconscious.
    2. The dog ate the beetles. This is a good sign because dogs have a long been associated with their ability to find their way in darkness – symbolically this would be the darkness of the unconscioius. And, they are also known to be very protective, which is another valuable trait for a dream compani0on. By eating the beetles, the dog would be getting more of the special attribute that made them so useful in your dream travels.

    OK – but what is this valuable “thing” that these beetles have? To answer this question, we have to look what beetles mean to our unconscious.

    So, how can we possibly know what these beetles mean to our unconscious? We can’t know everything that they mean but we can get a good idea. This is because the lowest region of the unconscious is called the collective unconscious. This is where we find archetypes that have been seen in people’s dreams for thousands of years. These archetypes are also important because they are the source of many of the symbols of different myths and religions. For more information on archetypes etc, see http://n2.nabble.com/Dream-Discussion-f4289868.html .

    Now the next step is to look at the significance of beetles in ancient myths and religions.

    Probably the best know beetle in mythology is the scarab beetles of the ancient Egyptians. To these ancient Egyptians, it was Khepera and pushed the sun through the sky.

    Summing up –
    I’m not really sure of the meaning of the beetles but I believe that they are very positive and are a source of power or strength in the dream world.

    Hope this helps.

  29. I almost forgot, in the first dream, I was amazed that the beetles were not crawling all over me as i had just gotten out of bed, I didn’t understand why they waited until I was out of bed to show themselves. In fact they were trying to get away, not attack.

    1. There’s a positive aura around you that keeps the beetles from harming you. Whether the powers of this charm will last forever is unknown.

      Let this dream be a warning of sorts that you should be more cautious in your daily activities.

  30. I had two separate dreams I am unsure of the meanings. The first dream was of beetles. I had been sleeping in a very large bed and was awakened by my son because we were going to be late, as I was about to get dressed my son noticed the fur on my comforter was moving. As I looked closer, the dog started barking and the beetles started falling out of the fur, it seemed like there was hundreds of them. We started killing them by stepping on them, even the dog was killing them by eating them.
