Broom ,To dream of a broom represents an ability to push away, push aside, or “sweep away” your problems, fears, insecurities. Discarding or clearing what is no longer useful to you. Feeling able to clean up your act when needed. Presentability or making a good impression when it’s finally important. Responsibly fixing or perfecting something with “final touches.”
Negatively, a broom may be a sign that you are intentionally ignoring good advice because it doesn’t feel good. Intentionally ignoring facts you don’t like. An arrogant or stubborn attitude that simply doesn’t want to deal with issues. Pushing problems away because they are not convenient. Pushing people away because they tell you the truth when you don’t want to hear it. Hiding the truth because it’s not convenient. A willingness to “sweep away” your own feelings to adjust to someone else’s.
Example: A young man dreamed of using a broom to kill spiders. In waking life he had just returned from a party with a lot of girls whom he was constantly insecure about speaking to. The broom killing the spiders may reflected his attempt to change things about himself at the party that he felt the girls at the party didn’t like by “brushing away” anything that wsn’t cool or attractive to the girls. A reflection of his wish to avoid looking like a loser by “brushing away”or hiding anything about himself that wasn’t perceived as cool.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of her mother poking her in the stomach with a broom handle. In waking life she was pregnant and heard comments from someone who told her that her mother had wished that she would lose the baby. She had a very bad relationship with her mother. The broom handle being poked in the pregnant belly may have reflected her feelings about the insensitive “jabbing” she was feeling from her mother’s comments about the baby being “cleared away” by a miscarriage.
Example 3: A woman dreamed of seeing a broom being used to lift up a skirt. In waking life she was intentionally choosing to “push aside” advice that was given to her and instead choose to discuss something embarrassing to the person giving her advice.
