If you see onions in your dream, then you want to pay very careful attention to the details surrounding them.
While an onion doesn’t seem like much, they actually have a very purposeful meaning in the dream world. They represent the unraveling of something in our lives.
Dreaming About An Onion With Layers
What situation do you see the onion in? This is a situation in your life that has multiple layers that you may or may not have considered. In order to get to the bottom of the onion, and of the layers, you may need to do some work to peel those away.
Things are unraveling because of a secret in your life, either that you are hiding, or that someone else is hiding, that the onion represents. The secret may simply be a revelation of sorts that you need to be inspired by in order to move forward in your life.
Have you had dreams about onions more than once? Check out the meaning of recurring dreams.
Dreaming About Eating An Onion
If you are eating a raw onion in a dream this represents your ability to get through the upcoming challenges facing you. Something might be unraveling, but this dream reassures you that it isn’t the end, you just have to act.
If the onion is cooked, it has a similar meaning except it adds that you are already acting and it is working. If you’ve recently asked questions or voiced concerns about something, a cooked onion gives you a nudge to continue on that path.
Dreaming That An Onion Is Making You Cry
You also might dream that an onion makes you cry. If this is the case, the symbol suggests that you are lacking intimacy in your life. This often points to our love or personal lives unraveling in front of us.
You may need to be a little more real and ask for what you need in these relationships in order to get where you want to in this situation.
Dreaming About Smelling Like Onions
Dreams about body odor generally lead back to one theme: Insecurity. When you specifically note a smell of onions, this points specifically to insecurity about the past.
The best way to overcome this is to face our past and work towards a life without regrets.
