Did you know that a chicken can teach you lessons? This is what Hermione, the neighborhood chicken, has been doing. For this post I will use my tagline, Nighttime Messages, Daytime Wisdom to showcase how chickens educate us. First, you will learn the chicken’s dream meanings, then I will go over the different chicken lessons Hermione has reinforced.
Once again, I will remind you that symbols in dreams are unique to each dreams. Why? Everyone has their own unique past issues, present experiences, and feelings; therefore, symbols have a different dream meaning for each individual. Please keep this in mind for the following:
Seven Chicken Dream Meanings
To be afraid.
The need to be in a group.
Something is fertile and/or ready to give birth.
A desire for something to take flight, yet not traveling far.
Your boyfriend/husband has more than one woman.
You need to keep nick-picking at something.
Someone in your life keeps pecking at you.
Chicken symbols in dream interpretation will vary depending on the person perspective, for instance:
A farmer views chicken as their livelihood.
The chicken is your pet.
Your favorite main course is chicken.
You were attacked by a flock of chickens.
Chickens disgust you.
These viewpoints will affect the dream’s meaning, which is why when you dream of a chicken you must think about what’s occurring in your life today, in the past or future, and problems that need to be solved. Plus, take into consideration the actions, other people, and symbols within the dream.
Back in March of 2019, my man and I were coming back from a walk when I exclaimed, “Is that a chicken?” It surely was to our surprise! This was the start of my chicken education/reminder lessons.
Six Chicken Lessons
I was brought up in the suburbs; hence, I lacked any experience with chickens. When this chicken first came up to me, I didn’t know what to expect and was nervous that she would peck me with her large beak. Not knowing how the chicken or my cats would respond to one another, I wouldn’t allow my cats, Merlin (white cat) and Rhiannon (black cat), too close to the chicken. Honestly, the first few times the chicken was braver than me, which people thought was hysterical.
One of my neighbors, my Facebook friends, and I were concerned about where this chicken came from. We didn’t think she was wild, but what happens if she got hit by a car, stolen, or some other misfortune. It was during a walk where I felt compelled to travel down a side street that I never bothered with. Where I observed the chicken surrounded by cats on a front porch, which answered the question why she wasn’t fearful of Merlin and Rhiannon!
There was a young couple across the street from the house with cats and chicken, so I asked if they knew who owned the chicken. Turns out, they owned her, Hermione, and I met some of their other chickens. I informed them about the distance she walked, that’s far for her chicken legs, and how I fed her bread. They were fine with me feeding her and told me to keep any eggs.
Hermione with her Mommy and Flock
Everyone was relieved when I spread the Hermione chicken news.
Don’t Put Your Eggs in One Basket
Even though I’ve practiced this with my eBooks among other things, it is funny the way Hermione reinforces this chicken lesson. To my knowledge, Hermione hits up three houses during her daily food walks; however, we all agree she probably has more.
My neighbor who lives across the street, not only feeds Hermione, she also leaves water on the porch for the chicken. One day, Hermione ate, drank water, and took a nap on my neighbor’s doormat. Ah, the life of a chicken.
Not only has Hermione been fed by my next door neighbor, but has walked into her house twice! The first time she grabbed her camera because no one would ever believe that a chicken walked into her house. Another time, my neighbor was in her backyard and shooed the chicken away from the backdoor. When she went to the front of her home, she heard Hermione pecking her door from inside of the house. Giggle, that’s one bold chicken!
Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?
Answer – because she was full from the neighborhood’s feeding her and went home to take a nap!
Share the Wealth
The hens are finally catching on to Hermione’s activity! I was feeding her and saw another chicken running across the road. Then, I fed both chickens.
When my mate came home, I told him that instead of telling my chicken story, I emailed him a picture. Hence, the lesson of a picture tells a thousand words. Upon opening the email, his response was, “Two chickens! I can’t believe there are two chickens!” Grin!
Hermione still comes alone in the morning; nonetheless, there are now three chickens in the hood at dinnertime! Perhaps more biker chicks will join them? We were trying to figure out a name for them and finally agreed upon a name I often call Hermione – the Bak-Bak Gang!
Did you know that while you’re dreaming what is occurring in your surrounding area can affect your dreams? How about your inner bodily function, can they alter your dreams? Yes to both questions. Even when you’re sleeping it’s important to be aware of what’s happening in your environment. Why? Because these dreams alert us to danger or issues within our bodies. Let’s examine each of these types of environment dreams.
Outer Environment Dreams
It’s quite possible this type of dream occurred back in the cavemen time! Can you imagine what would have happened to the human race if they continued sleeping in a cave when a lion entered? Talk about an easy meal for the lion!
Fast forward to our timeline, we may no longer be sleeping in caves, yet we still need to be warned of danger. For instance, you could have a dream about a creepy stranger that wakes you up. Upon awakening, you hear someone breaking into your home. If you continue to sleep there’s a strong possibility that this intruder could have harmed you! Instead, you are prepared to defend yourself.
Other possibilities of outer environment dreams are when your home is on fire, a car is about to crash into your bedroom, or a dangerous storm is occurring. Again, these dreams keep you safe.
Sometimes an outer environment dream uses other senses besides sight. Many, many moons ago on an extremely hot June night, I had a dream about bad body odor, which I still smelled upon awakening. Since my bedroom window was open, I looked out onto the roof outside, yet didn’t see anyone – only darkness. I decided to close and lock that window, even though I lived on the second floor without an air conditioner. Better hot and sweaty, I thought to myself, then raped or dead. The next day I got an air conditioner.
Inner Environment Dreams
These types of dreams tend to be more humorous because rarely danger is involved. An example of this is when you have to urinate. You could dream of not being able to find a toilet, or find a bunch that are occupied, or there’re no door on it and a bunch of people are standing around it. Upon awakening, you get out of bed in a hurry to relieve yourself.
Another common inner environment dream theme is not being able to quench your thirst no matter how much you are drinking. In the dream you could have drank a gallon of water or keep refilling your cup at a soda fountain without any relief. Boy, are you thirsty when you wake up!
Why would we have those two dream examples? To keep from messing up our sleeping area, to avoid a possible bladder infection, or prevent becoming dehydrated.
If you journal your dreams, you may wonder if you should bother recording these types. My suggestion is to journal environment dreams for two reasons. The first reason is to help keep you consistent. Secondly, there may be a symbol or an action that will be useful in interpreting future dreams.
Great news, I am now a teacher at Learn It Live! My very first class is FREE on June 30, 2019 at noon Eastern Time. Here’s the class description:
Did you know there’s more to understanding your dream meanings than your symbols? In this class you will learn the limitations of using dream dictionaries. Plus, you’ll discover eleven different dream categories and tips on how to recognize them. When you understand what category your dream fits into, then its message will become more apparent.
For those of you who don’t know what a precognitive dream is, it’s when you have a dream about an upcoming future event. The actual dream rarely plays out the exact same way the incident occurs; often your dream will have weird symbolism and altered actions. In some precognitive dreams, you will experience a knowing this will take place. Other times, you won’t recognize that the dream was a prediction of future event until the situation unfolds.
There’s also a third circumstance where the dream has a message for a past or current situation and is still a precognitive dream at the same time. This is what happened to me recently, hence the reason for this blog. Here’s my dream:
I was running late for work and needed to wash up and change my clothes. As I approached the master bedroom bathroom, I saw my sister in there with a hot iron in her hand that she dropped and it hit my cat, Merlin, by his eye. My sister walked out of the bathroom acting like it was no big deal, as I ran to check on Merlin. Luckily, the iron burned the fur by his right eye instead of the actual eye. I felt bad for him, yet at the same time really didn’t have time for him because I had so much work to do. Compassion won and I asked him, “Are you okay, baby?” Merlin started to do whiny meows that I was able to understand as if he was meowing in the English language.
Merlin’s Hard Life
Upon awakening, I understood how this related to a recent situation of mine. My sister represented a woman who disagreed with a couple of ideas I had. After our conversation I felt my intuitive knowing was disregarded and was upset. This waking incident was shown in the dream symbolically as my sister walking away without being phased that she had hurt Merlin. Merlin was an aspect of my third eye and feelings that were not accepted, and the burn mark was for my hurt feelings.
However, the dream also had another meaning, which became clearer as time went on. That morning, I put Merlin’s harness and leash on for his morning walk. When we walked onto the porch, I noticed an adorable orange with white kitten that was meowing at my neighbor in her yard. My neighbor thought it was one of the feral kittens from the neighbors down the street (who feed feral cats, but don’t get medical care for them – grr); however, I told her that feral cats don’t meow. We each took a turn trying to get the kitten to go to that house, yet the kitten refused.
As horrible as I felt for the kitten’s circumstances, I didn’t want to become involved. Why? Because I didn’t want to infect my own two cats with the kitten’s ‘possible disease’, plus I have a parakeet and beta fish, too. Kitten’s vet bills are very expensive. And I’m busy with my own business. When I felt horrible and teary, my guides kept reminding me that it wasn’t my responsibility. I did give the kitten some dry food that he/she wouldn’t eat.
Three times the kitten went in the middle of the road. And so we forced him/her to move onto the grass to avoid being hit. Perhaps the kitten wanted to die? Or didn’t know better?

This kitten spent the night seeking shelter under different cars when it was pouring out and the next day he/she wouldn’t leave my neighbor alone. My neighbor ended up bringing it to the shelter because she wasn’t able to care for it either. Turns out the kitten wasn’t eating, had upper respiratory problems, fleas, a blind left eye, and God knows what else. My neighbor received a call from the shelter that they put the kitten down to avoid it suffering a few more days before it would die.
After this sorrowful experience, it occurred to me how my strange dream was also a precognitive dream as follows:
Our master bathroom in the dream was related to an actual experience of mine. The first summer I lived in my present home, either a person or cat dropped off a newborn kitten in our front yard. At one point, Chris brought the kitten into the master bathroom. I was paranoid that my two cats, Merlin and Rhiannon, could catch a disease from the newborn, he honored my request to put the kitten on the porch. Sadly, the kitten passed during the night. This part of the dream really illustrated the point I’m always blogging about on how our past experiences will affect a dream. Therefore, the event in the master bathroom was a representation of an abandoned kitten.
My sister was used for two meanings in the dream. The first is she loves orange and white cats; therefore, a metaphor for the orange and white kitten. Secondly, my sister was representing how some folks don’t care about the cat’s welfare and their action of just walking off.
Merlin’s injury was symbolic for the kitten’s blind eye, maybe by an accident? Also, my feelings of I’m too busy to take care of Merlin were really for the kitten.
What still is upsetting to me (as my eyes tear up while I’m typing) is this kitten’s tragedy could have been avoided if people were responsible. The kitten was either a victim of someone dropping it off in our neighborhood. It wouldn’t be the first time! Or the people who are feeding the feral cats without spending the money to neuter or spay them!
When you drop off a domesticated animal in an unknown neighborhood you’re subjecting it to: food for birds of prey, getting hit by a car, attacked by animals, caught by animal control, brought to an animal shelter that will euthanized unwanted animals, being rejected by people who aren’t responsible for it, or surviving while adding more unwanted kittens or puppies! Very rarely will someone adopt your pet.
For anyone who feeds feral cats, DON”T, unless you’re willing to catch them and pay for fixing them and other medical care. Why? Male cats help female cats become pregnant and ONE female cat can give birth to 180 Kittens in a Lifetime! This is the reason millions of animals are killed each year, it’s not the shelter’s fault – it’s society’s fault!
If you can’t afford the vet bill for all the shots a kitten needs or to spay/neutered them, then adopt an older cat that already had these procedures done. Towns often have free or low cost yearly shots. What is really needed is people who can volunteer at a shelter and/or foster kittens and cats until their forever home is available.
Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox; nevertheless, if I only educated one person about the perils of our cat population, then it was worth it to write this blog.
Perhaps there was a purpose for this precognitive dream and experience of the unwanted kitten so people could learn about both subjects. Precognitive dreams often alert us to upcoming danger, yet other times we are informed of upcoming happy times.

Every night, your dreams are sending you messages while you sleep. What are these messages about? They can be about: denied emotions, future events, visitations from your departed loved ones, and guidance. Many times your dreams are similar to a Guru’s advice on how to solve problems and life direction.
Yes, your dreams do supply you with answers; hence, the category of solution dreams. Solution dreams are one of my favorite styles of dream that I often use. To learn more about this dream category, please click on this site’s category for solution dreams where there are posts on this topic. In some of these post, I mentioned there are times when your answer might not come into your dreams, yet appears in another form when you’re awake.
Here are eleven ways that you may receive your answer:
Signs on the road while driving.
Books, whether that’s a book falling off a shelf or seeing the same book over and over.
Numbers on a clock or elsewhere, which you will discover the meaning through numerology and/or angels numbers.
Image posts on social media.
An unexpected article, blog, or email.
Oracle or tarot cards in physical form or online.
Text or call from someone.
A movie, television show, video, or commercial.
Someone else’s conversation that you overheard.
Or having a light bulb moment.
Of course, there are other ways your answers appear. Perhaps you’re thinking those eleven things are just a coincidence? As a dream interpreter and from doing psychic readings, I’ve learned to consider everything that occurs with a client. For instance, once I was giving a reading to a woman about her boss, when out of the blue my two cats interrupted our session with a cat fight – meow, grr, and hiss! I was about to go on with the reading, when a flash about the fight’s symbolism hit me of how their cat fight related to the reading, which I passed on to the client. In other words – everything happens for a reason.
Then, there are times solutions come through both your dreams and waking life for extra validation. This is what happened to me and the inspiration for this blog. Hopefully, my experience will assist in some manner.
In the past six months, my business has undergone some major changes. As many self-employed people know there are many ups and downs in business to accelerate our doubts and fears. This is what happened to me recently. Since I recently did a guest post for Angelorum about Sleeping with Your Tarot Cards to get answers to your problems, I decided to take my own advice.
I placed the Isis card from the Daughters of the Moon tarot deck under my pillow while asking my angels for dream guidance on my business. Sadly, sleep didn’t happen right away. At one point, I opened my eyes, turned my head to observe the time – 11:44 – an intuitive feeling overcame me that there was significance in these numbers and I grabbed my tablet. In general this means new direction. Then I was guided to choose an online tarot card and received the strength card of being strong while being loving to overcome obstacles. Yuppers, even before I fell asleep guidance was coming.
When I eventually fell asleep, I dreamt:
Working at my desk, Merlin started to make the sound of a hairball being stuck in his throat. My response was, “I don’t have time for this.”
As I was awakening, I knew there was more, yet it slipped away. Yes, even a dream interpreter’s dream flee away at times. However, there are messages in this short dream segment such as:
Take the time to express yourself.
Stop being so wrapped up in business problems.
Continue your work despite objection from others or yourself.
Warning you of an upcoming hairball.
Merlin lets me know he needs more attention; twenty-four hours a day would be preferred!
Honestly, it’s probably all of the above meanings, since I cleaned up Rhiannon’s hairball instead of Merlin after getting out of bed. What’s really awesome was the morning after this dream I was guided to two different oracle decks for my message of the day, the cards guidance was about transformation, perseverance, and compensation. On social media there were posts about being yourself while walking your own unique path. Talk about confirmation!

To subscribe or not to subscribe that is the question. As a society, we tend to enjoy subscriptions, whether that’s with books, movies, or music. It’s almost like being at a smorgasbord where you can pig out, but with entertainment. Have you ever been hooked on a series that’s on Netflix or a similar on-demand video streaming services, it is one A.M.in the morning on a weeknight, but say to yourself – just one more episode?
Many people love subscriptions for the savings and variety of choices. Who makes the most money from subscription plans? Big companies, for example: Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, and Amazon. These companies often take large cuts from authors, musicians, and others profits; however, some people who use these platforms to submit their works can earn mega amounts of income.
Let’s face it, subscription plans are here to stay as the majority of society is using one or more daily. Fortunately, it’s not mandatory where you have to put your creative works. For instance; I agonizes over words, sentences, and paragraphs for my nonfiction books. If I put these eBooks into the Kindle unlimited program (a division of KDP Select), I would be paid less than a half a cent for each page read! This fact, among numerous other reasons, is why my eBooks are available at other online stores and not exclusive to Amazon despite the so-called advantage of the Select program.
As I mention earlier, we do have a choice on where to put our works. Recently, I received an email from Vivek Puri of Tabletwise inviting me to put my dream interpretation course on his new subscription learning site. My intuition told me to check it out; therefore, I used his scheduler to set up the time to ask questions about his site. And boy, did I have questions! After speaking to Vivek, I knew this would be an ideal platform for my course.

We all got to go; hence, defecating will appear in our dreams. Even if it’s a natural part of life, there are some people who will feel uncomfortable about this post. However, dreams about poop are very common. The following quote from my book Learn the Secret Language of Dreams sums it up nicely:
Please remember that everyone’s dream symbolism is different; therefore, one symbol can literally have thousands of meaning depending on the dreamers: past experiences, obstacles, relationships, upcoming events, and emotions in the dream. These following seven poop dream meanings are for the general public:
