Spiritual sense

In spiritual development, and particularly when dealing with outside
influences, we can become contaminated – or infected – by ideology and
spurious beliefs. We need to be aware of the possibility that we can be ‘taken
over’ by wrong thought and negativity.

Psychological / emotional perspective

When we are made uncomfortable by external circumstances in waking
life, this may appear as an infection in a dream.

Common meanings

Dreaming of having an infection suggests that there is the possibility
of us having internalized negative attitudes from other people. Depending
on where in the body the infection appears, there is information as to the
type of ‘infection’. For example, an infection in the leg may indicate
that we feel we are being prevented from moving forward quickly enough
in waking life.
