  1. I dreamed scrapping 2 small, dead, red ticks that were settled around my ear lob. After removing them I realised there was one live greyish tick sucking stuck to the back of my neck and sucking my blood and I plucked it off and killed it.

    • This is a common meaning it is most likely mentioning towards a close friend that was causing pain or treachery and needed to be removed from your life……but this dream is a form of closure meaning that you have already removed this friend or that you have been seriously considering it

  2. I had a dream that my little daughter was filled with tiks and they told me that it means money but I really dont no !

  3. I had a dream i was so itchy all over my body.I went into a bathroom and took part of my clothes off and i had a lot of ticks on me.As i took them off i would throw them into the toilet.

    • Hi,

      The dream is telling you that you have “Dry Skin”. All those Ticks on you means that you have alot of Dry Scaly Skin..WHen you were taking them off and throwing them in the toilet means that you need to take care of your “Dry Skin”.

  4. I had a reoccuring dream last night about tick infestation. They were everywhere…on my car, on the carpet, the grass, etc. I am deathly afraid of them, so to dream about them more than once in a night doesn’t sit well with me. I would wake myself up from the dream and then when I would fall asleep I would dream about ticks again…always an infestation. what does it mean?? This is what I found so far on the dream interpretation (from two different websites):

    To dream of ticks represents an annoyance in your life that forces you to be extra careful. An exhausting need to stay perfect or appear perfect to others. Never getting to enjoy yourself because you are too concerned with being cautious of a mistake. Always feeling on the edge.

    To see ticks in your dream indicates that something is slowly draining the energy and strength out of you. A relationship, your job, or someone is sucking the life and energy out of you. The dream may also be a pun on being “ticked off” and thus represent your feelings of being annoyed or irritated.

  5. hi Shari,
    the Ticks in your dream are Symbols of Worry. And that they are manifested and that You keep seeing them everywhere means that You are surrounded by Worry. You are Worring yourself to the bone. Jesus said: “Donot worry about nothing. Just like God take care of Birds, He will take care of Us. We are greater than Birds so if God takes care of lesser creatures than Humans then imagine what he will do for Us. For He will never leave Us or forsake Us~those that believe in His Son Jesus the Christ. You need to Constantly Pray to God and believe that all things are possible through Christ Jesus. By doing this you will increase Your faith and there will be lesser room for anxiety that brings fear and worry into your Soul.

    I pray that I have helped you, in Jesus name! Contact me anytime if you have anymore questions….

  15. The only thing I remember about my dream last night is that looked down and had a big fat tick on my side, a little bit towards my back but in the hip area. I looked down and it was attached but I could see the mouth.. I don’t really understand it either. I was like oh I’ll get a lighter and burn it off, as I reached for the lighter I noticed it already fell to the floor. What does it mean?

  20. I had a dream last night that ticks were falling down from the sky like heavy rain. I was standing outside when it started. As I was running to find shelter, the ticks were landing all over me. I was covered in seconds. Some already blood bloated ticks splatted when they hit the ground. I was too scared to see if I had been bitten by any of them. I tried to brush them off without looking. It was horrifying to me. I’ve had Lyme’s disease once before.

  21. i dreamed I had a tick infestation on my head but I managed to remove all of them and threw them in a burning pit. Prior to this dream, I had been carrying a lot of anxiety and worry and it weighed me down. I prayed over it and had the tick removal dream. since then, I’ve been feeling a lot lighter and worry is a thing of the past. So y’all gotta examine your lives and see where u need help.

  22. Last night I dreamed that I was at my mother-in-law’s house. She is 86 years old. Her son, my husband, was still living there in the dream even though were all were our actual ages. I was getting ready to go home to my apartment, so I started packing my things. It was a very dark and messy environment. While I was packing, I decided to change my clothes and noticed on the outer side of my left calf there were probably 50 ticks attached to my skin, the size of grapes all huddled together. They were blue-gray/skin colored and floppy like a growth. The skin near the ticks was black like it has been burned and was beginning to scar. To look at them made me feel sick, but I wasn’t sure if they had caused the blackening on my leg or whether they were helping. I was left with an overall sick, yucky feeling.

    I look forward to someone’s interpretation.
