When’s the last time that you heard someone tell you, “Oh, I’ll believe that when pigs fly!”
As ironic as that statement sounds, you may have actually had a dream about pigs flying — and that’s not by coincidence.
Everything that you see in your dreams could hold a deeper meaning. Yes, even dreams about pigs flying.
The dream realm works in mysterious (and sometimes hilarious) ways to reveal what’s going on within you on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
In this particular post, we will be exploring the messages that pigs may hold for you, especially when they show up in your dreams.
Pigs Can Show Up For You As Spirit Animals
If you’ve just begun your spiritual journey, you may start to notice certain animals showing up for you in your life.
This doesn’t always have to be limited to seeing them in your waking life.
Spirit animals are just one way that the Universe can communicate with you about certain qualities that you hold that you can call upon in times of need.
Animals are an excellent way to study and harness characteristics that can make you a well-rounded person that’s able to manifest the life that you wish to live.
Well, while humans are plagued with indecision, imposter syndrome, and constant comparison between themselves and others, animals simply do what they came here to do.
They have an innate ability to just know what they came to do and become experts in certain behaviors, qualities, actions, and activites that get them to achieve their goals whether it be hunting, protecting themselves, or creating an environment for them to flourish.
A pig showing up for you may not seem like the most intriguing spirit animal, but they are actually very fascinating.
While many people think that they are pretty gross, pigs still seem to flourish in their “dirty environments.”
Even studying this, you can take away that even in the mud (or darkness), you can still show up as your best self.
Pigs are actually very friendly and intelligent creatures as well.
If a pig is showing up for you as a spirit animal through your dreams, they may be sharing the message that you should rely on your charisma and empathy to connect with others around you at this time, even if you don’t feel that you’re in the most supportive environment.
Pigs are also curious and playful.
If you’ve been taking life way too seriously, your dreams could remind you that life doesn’t have to be stressful or draining.
It may be time to let your hair down and roll around in the mud with some close friends figuratively speaking.
The Most Common Dreams About Pigs and What They Mean
As mentioned above, dreams may reveal interesting images to highlight to you what needs to be addressed in your waking life.
Even if you’ve never seen a real pig in your waking life, you may have seen one in a movie or read a book about a pig (Charlotte’s Web is a favorite!) that stored that particular image in your subconscious mind.
A pig may show up for you in your dreams to reveal a certain emotion, invite you to explore a new characteristic about yourself, or nudge you to face something in your waking life.
Here are the most common dreams about pigs and what they mean.
Dreaming of a Pig Playing in the Mud
If you’ve recently had a dream of a pig happily rolling around in the mud, you may find that you’re facing a more joyous time ahead.
Even if you don’t feel like you’ve manifested everything that your ego desires, you may be able to find the small things to be grateful for in your life.
It’s important to pay attention to how you feel when you witness that pig playing in its natural habitat.
Most times, you may feel light and even appreciative of the happy sight.
This could be an emotion that you’re ready to experience in your waking life.
If you’ve been facing tougher times, this is a sign from your dreams that you may come into more prosperity and abundance in many ways!
Dreaming of a Pig and It’s Owner
There are many people who make pigs their pets in real life!
Pigs are lovable creatures that make great companions.
The fact that pigs are pink and super cute is also a subconscious message of love and compassion.
If you’ve recently had a dream that someone was caring for their little pet piggly wiggly, this could be a sign from your subconscious that you’re ready to open your heart up to love.
This may come in the form of a pet that shows you unconditional love or even a new relationship.
If a new relationship does not seem to be on the horizon, this could be a message to explore different ways to expand your self love.
Dreaming of Pigs Doing Odd Tasks
While this dream description may seem broad, there’s a reason for this.
Pigs are actually considered to be the 4th most intelligent animal in the world next to chimps, elephants, and dolphins.
Believe it or not, their intelligence was first discovered during a few experiments that took place in the late 90’s.
Surprisingly, pigs were taught several tasks using a cursor on a computer screen and picked up on them as quickly as chimps did.
If you’ve recently had a dream that depicted a pig doing something out of the norm, this could mean that you’re ready to learn something new yourself.
Even if you’re facing a daunting task, this dream could be telling you that you are more than capable of learning something new and applying it in your waking life.
Dreaming of a Pig and It’s Mother
Did you know that pigs are actually very social creatures?
They love to be in groups and work pretty well together to create a loving, nurturing environment together.
Of course, this starts at an early age with the relationship between the mother and it’s baby piglet.
If you’ve recently had a dream about a piglet and it’s mother, this could mean that you’re ready to create something new.
Any young animal or even babies showing up in your dreams can bring a visual to the idea of something new and fresh coming to life.
You may be feeling fertile with new creative ideas.
This is a sign from the astral realm that it’s time to start exploring new territories as this could bring about an exciting venture in the near future.
Dreaming of a Pig Slaughter
While most of the dreams about pigs hold positive messages, there is a chance that you may have had a more violent dream about a pig.
In many societies, pigs are a common food and face slaughter.
This type of dream does not translate realistically or mean that anything bad will happen to you in the future.
However, this dream may highlight some interesting feelings for you to explore and unpack in your waking life.
If you’ve recently had a dream about a pig on the chopping block, you may subconsciously feel like you are disposable.
There could be feelings of self worth that need to be explored when you have a dream similar to this.
How Can You Use The Messages That Come To You In Your Dreams?
If you’ve been noticing that you’re having particularly active dreams about pigs or any other subject matter, this could be a sign that it’s time to start integrating the messages and lessons being revealed to you in the astral realm.
Your dreams are considered to be a safe space to reveal to you what’s going on within you.
It’s up to you to decide whether to use them or not.
One way that you can is to start notating the different details of your dreams to start identifying patterns that show up for you, if any.
Keeping a dream journal nearby the place you rest can be very beneficial for decoding your dreams.
