Wild Boar Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Share

Historically, humanity has had ambiguous feelings about the boar or pig. In some cultures, it is an honored symbol of courage and fearlessness, while in others, it is associated with death, demons that devour humans, and overall danger. Polynesian cultures make masks of a “devouring demon” that feature boar’s tusks, and the ancient Greek depiction of Medusa often shows her as having boar’s tusks along with her serpent hair.

The ancient devourer symbol represents he underworld. The sow, a very productive and omnivorous animal that is known to eat her own young, represents the cycle of birth and death; in other words, the Earth takes back what it produces. The boar or pig represents the Earth Goddess who is beyond good and evil. When masculine gods became dominant in history, these ancient goddess figures were given more sinister and demonic connotations.

The blood of a pig was considered to be an agent of purification, according to some ancient beliefs, suggesting that the boar was a sacred animal with links to demonic elements. In Christian tradition, when Jesus casts out demons, they are sent into a herd of pigs. This was done because pigs, as traditionally sacred animals, can take away evil and purify it. At the same time, they are creatures of the underworld themselves and are receptive to evil.

The dream of a wild boar represents courage, assertiveness, and confrontation. The appearance of a boar in a dream suggests that you are learning to face your fears. It is an ancient symbol of the hero and the warrior. Boars were sacrificed to the fertility gods Frey and Freya in honor of victory and courage.

The dream of a wild boar indicates success and protection in troubled times. It is also a symbol of personal honor. Some ancient cultures associated the boar with healing as well. This association arises from the boar’s ability to fearlessly face unknown dangers.

If you see a boar in a dream, it means that you must fearlessly search within to discover new things about yourself and how you view the people in your life.

  • Thank you for this. Definitely helped me to understand what happened to me this morning a little better. I was in a state of sleep paralysis when a figure (human, I think) wearing a boar's mask, with tusks, appeared at the end of my bed. I started screaming at it to get away (in my mind, of course, since I was paralyzed), I was so furious that it was there, until I saw that a knife was stuck into its belly. I suddenly became sympathetic and asked, "Who did this to you?" at which point it slowly raised its hand and pointed at me. CREEPY. Anyway, a lot to go off of in this article to try and interpret that, so I appreciate it. I didn't know anything about boars until now.

    • I had this happen too. I was having one of my sleep paralysis episodes too and saw a human with a boar face. It creeped me out but I wasn’t scared. It happened twice to me. I actually tried to grab its snout.

  • In my dream, I had One bore locked up in a heavy duty room. It was taller than a man and appeared sedated. It also stood on two feet. The other bore was outside tied up with pipe cleaners that are used for arts and crafts. I was more afraid of that one than the larger One. When I went to check on it, the bore outside had freed itself and was breaking into the house. I stabbed it with a fork and cut its tongue and fingers (it didn't have hooves) with scissors but it had no affect. Finally it got into the house. It wasn't dangerous but playful. But I still had the need to kill it. I asked around if anyone had a gun but everyone said no. I called my pit bull to come eat it but he got so scared he turned White and backed away with his tail between his legs. Finally I gave the bore a pack of Tylenol tablets to eat. My alarm went off and I woke up.

  • Very interesting. I had a dream last night that I was in a parking lot with wild boars running around me and I was not afraid of them - even reached out to pet them as they passed.

  • I have had two dreams recently about wild boars. In the first one they were in the distance. In the second one the boat followed me and was right next to me. A friend tried to stuff a pillow in its mouth.

  • I just woke up from my dream about 15 minutes ago. It was horrifying. In my dream, I signed a contract to kill a demon pig. The contractor himself had a scary figure. At one point in my dream, I was so scared to ask for help because the contractor said that he would torture me if I was to discuss the demon pig with anyone. At one point in my dream, I was in tears because I felt so helpless. I signed a contract that I knew nothing about that bounded me to kill a gigantic and horrifying pig. I talked to my brother about my contract and when I said the word "demon pig" we both were teleported to the contractor. We were in his torture chamber and he tortured us. The scary part was that I felt the torture in real pain.... I could feel the pain on my left lower back in real life. This has never happened to me before until now. Shortly after, I woke up but I was somehow tempted to go back to my dream. So, I closed my eyes and fell asleep. I got back into my dream and my brother and I met a man. This man said that we could go with him and be safe from the contractor or we could kill the demon pig and live a life of evil. I was already terrified about discussing about the demon pig at this point. I was hesitant because I was afraid that the contractor wouldve killed me if I left with the man... So I asked the man if he could wait until I made a decision. But, the man said I had to make the decision now- to either stay and attempt to kill the demon pig or leave with the man to safety. I later woke up from the dream and I was afraid to leave my bed. I couldn't tell if then pain i felt was real or fake. I'm afraid to go back to sleep to experience this "demon pig" and the scary contractor man. If anyone has any opinions or insights about my dream, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!
