Dreaming of Banana
One day, I dreamed of feeling a bad stomach ache, because I ate a couple of bananas. The feeling was so uncomfortable that I woke up.
I tried to remember what happened the day before, that might have triggered this dream. I recalled having eaten bananas for dinner, because I wanted a quick snack before bed. I swallowed my fruit too quickly and felt a lump in the back of my throat. I reached for a glass of water and gulped down a few mouthfuls. I felt only slightly better. So I proceeded to drink more water, until I could feel some normalcy in my throat.
The internal discomfort triggered this dream, to inform me that I need to do something to remove the irritation.
In my household, the banana fruit used to be a favorite. There can never be too many bananas. Then one day, excessive consumption of bananas over two months brought side effects. The extreme internal “cooling” of banana’s naturally found fruit acid, may cause some reaction in people with weakness. A banana contains a total of four acids and they are malic, oxalic, citric, and tartaric acid. It has a small amount of potassium but its safe to consume bananas daily. It would take around 400 bananas a day, to stop a human heart from beating with the amount of concentrated potassium that accumulates from over-consumption of bananas. Nobody can stomach 400 bananas a day so the scenario of dying from banana overdose, is a far fetched one.
Interpretation Bananas Dream
My dream of the banana fruit was probably triggered by the incident the night before. I don’t think there is any other latent meaning attached to this dream.
Erotic Banana Dreaming – Alternate meaning of the banana as a phallic symbol
Any object that is shaped like a phallus can be interpreted as holding sexual meaning in a dream. Human beings have primary needs like physiological, safety, love, esteem, and self-actualization. Men and women will dream of sexual love because of their secret desires for love, self esteem and being at one’s best (self actualization).
If you have an intimate partner and dream of the banana as a phallus, then it could mean you desire sexual love.
If you don’t have a special partner who you love, but dream of the banana as a phallic object, then your desire triggered this dream. Your unconscious sends a message using this dream. It wants to tell you to engage in activities that will find a suitable partner to satisfy your desire.
Another dream meaning of banana is its association to sensitivity.
The fruit is sensitive to touch and pressure. If you have a boyfriend, husband or males around you, then one of the possible dream interpretations maybe concerning the males around you. You may have encountered male sensitivity to certain issues and you might have brushed it off. However, your intuition and unconsciousness had worked on extracting meaning to your experiences. Thus, dreams maybe triggered.
Besides sexuality and sensuality, the banana can also denote fertility.
