To dream of a grocery store represents decisions being made that help to sustain you for the short term. Keeping a good situation going by addressing your short term needs. Confidence about knowing what you can delay confronting a problems or delay an unpleasant situation from occurring. Feeling that it’s easy to deal with your problems “just for now.”
Negatively, a grocery store may be a sign that you are considering dishonest behavior as method to temporarily keep a problem under control. Lies or deception in order to delay being honest. Feeling good not having to face your problems for a short while longer. A sign that long term solutions to problems are not being considered or that you continually keep putting your problems off for later. Short-term solutions that costs you long-term happiness.
Alternatively, dreaming of a grocery store may reflect anxiety issues related to health issues with food sensitivities. Anxiety about not being able to buy the special food or health products you need.
Example: A woman dreamed of being in a grocery store parking lot. In waking life she was delaying family gatherings to reunite with her step-sister because she felt her step-sister was dangerous due to her marijuana use. The grocery store in this case may have reflected her feelings about the potential to regularly have family gathering to temporarily help prolong healthy family relationships.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of seeing a grocery store closing. In waking life she was having anxiety that she wouldn’t be able to buy certain food products during a family visit out of state because she was on a very special diet.
Example 3: A young woman dreamed of being in a grocery store with her parents. In waking life she was impatiently trying to pass a training program at work to help her get a better job at her company. She was doing everything she could to persevere hoping to be told she finally passed. The grocery store in this case may have reflected her choice to keep enduring the difficult training by whatever means possible for the short term hoping she would pass the training test. The grocery store symbolism was may have been a sign that she was more focused on passing the training than on being good at her job while believing that short-term perseverance was her only problem when the job might not have been good for her at all.
