If you want to know about the general meaning of a jungle in your dreams, just look at the usual associations with a jungle!
It’s a place where ‘survival of the fittest’ is a common mantra. The predators seek the prey; the prey seeks to survive; the predators know that if they do not kill the prey, then they themselves will be killed.
It’s a dog eat dog world out there in the jungle; and this is often what a jungle dream represents: competitiveness, pressure, and expecting a lot of yourself.
The Deeper Meaning Of A Jungle Dream
Whether you are in a jungle, fighting to survive in a jungle, or walking through a jungle, it is important to acknowledge the deeper meaning behind a jungle dream.
The jungle is a symbol of the unconscious aspects of yourself which are underdeveloped and yet to be tamed. They may be repressed in the darkest corners of yourself and are being stifled, often due to social demands or disapproval within the collective.
A jungle dream is a sign that you must focus on your own personal growth if you are to progress on a spiritual level. It is the same with human civilization. If humanity had not progressed as a civilization through the centuries, we as a species would not have been able to reach where we are today, which includes a progression of moral concepts, a sense of right and wrong, and an acceptance of all types of people, regardless of color, background, sexual orientation, and individual beliefs.
The only way that you can civilize these aspects of yourself is by acknowledging them and drawing them into the light. In the words of Carl Jung: “In all chaos, there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”

Dreaming About Being Trapped In A Jungle
Fear and anxiety may be trapping you in your waking life. This fear is determined to be released and is affecting you in your sleeping world. It is important to analyze during waking life what may be preventing you from moving forward, to the point that it is affecting you in your dream.
Dreaming About Being Attacked In A Jungle
Dreaming of being attacked in a jungle, either by a wild animal or another person, indicates that you are acknowledging the deeper and wilder aspects of yourself and undergoing a transformation.
Being attacked in a dream can be frightening, but this is likely your subconscious’ way of letting you know that you are ready to ‘release the beast within’ and you have the strength and fortitude to face aspects of your own character which can help you become the best version of yourself.
Dreaming of Fighting Over Food In The Jungle
If you dream that you are fighting someone or something over food, or another necessary tool for survival like water or shelter, then it indicates that the competitive side of your nature is strong at the moment.
It may be time to step back a bit if it is getting out of control.
Analyze your waking life and ask yourself: what areas of my life am I being overly competitive?
