Seeing a camel in a dream is not as common as dreaming about cats and dogs. That is why I encourage you to go over the following meanings and be surprised how much it reveals about your personality.
People dream about camels because it may represent 1) animal representation of personality, 2) insecurity or doubt in self, 3) guilt, 4) need to be humble, 5) indecisiveness, 6) struggle with aggressive behavior, and 7) dissatisfaction with life.
Seeing a camel in your dreams can either be calming or worrying, depending on the context of your dream. Take note of the feelings associated when you have this dream.
There are a lot of possible explanations for the appearance of a camel in your dreams. But one thing is for sure, this dream symbol is related to some issues you may be experiencing in your waking life.
Camels often appear in dreams because they can be the representation in animal form of the dreamer’s personality.
The camel signifies an animal that is easy to ride on and very helpful. If someone rides a camel in his or her dream, it would indicate that the dreamer’s personality is good at guiding others through their own problems.
On the other hand similar to a dream about deer, if someone dreams of a camel in their dream but they are not riding the animal, it generally indicates that the person is trying to be helpful in the world around them. Camels represent the ability to help others through difficulties.
The personality of a person may also appear as a camel in dreams if the dreamer is trying to understand themselves better. The animal’s traits are generally positive, and it may represent an aspect that will help them through the struggles they are experiencing.
If one is dreaming about a camel then that could also translate into insecurity or doubt in oneself. Such a dream is related to the way one views oneself and the effects that might have on their lives. The camel can be viewed for instance as the living representation of a boring, demanding or having an unhealthy relationship.
The first mention of the camel in a dream is often related to some kind of problem or challenge. Dreaming about camels can be tantamount to being insecure or having doubts in oneself. This type of anxiety could come from feelings that are preventing the dreamer from moving forward with their life, either positively or negatively.
It could mean that one is feeling challenged in regards to how they view things. They may feel that what you are doing, or about to do is not good enough. It could also be seen as the camel being boring and uninspiring. These types of dreams can also be related to some type of relationship with a family member, co-worker or someone else in one’s life.
A person may dream about a camel when they feel guilty because the dreamer might have done something to hurt others. This is represented by a camel attacking them.
When people feel guilty they may not take action because they are afraid of the consequences or the other person’s reaction. If this happens, their guilt will continue to grow. The instinct is designed to motivate people by making them feel bad when they do something wrong.
People who dream about a camel when they feel guilty may be suffering from guilt overload. This is caused by an overactive guilt instinct that has not been able to motivate them into taking some action.
In a dream, camels can also represent a person’s need to be humble. In some cases, a camel in a dream represents someone who is sinful.
In the case of the need to be humble, a camel can represent forgiveness of sins or repentance from our own personal offenses against God.
It has been said that every human being commits sin by either thought, word, or deed. We all fall short of God’s standard of perfection which is righteousness, holiness, and truth as the bible says. Hence, every human being needs to be humble before God because no one deserves His blessings just by his/her own merit (Luke).
When one dreams about a camel, there is also a chance that one is having trouble making decisions in their own life, especially those that pertain to their future or life path.
Dreams in which a camel is present can also represent a need for more spiritual guidance when it comes to making decisions. They may have been going through life changes, and they require a deeper level of introspection in order to fully understand what is best for their future.
Camel dreams sometimes do not necessarily mean that one is indecisive, but they can mean that one is struggling to make a decision. Often, the reason why people cannot make decisions boils down to fear of making the wrong choice.
Decision-making is not an easy process for those who simply cannot bear to think about making a mistake, as they may have already planned out their life choices and visualized their future plans.
When one is trying to make a decision, they often have more than one option available. However, this can be problematic if they are unable (or unwilling) to choose between the options that are presented to them.
When someone cannot seem to make up their mind, it can be helpful for them to take some time alone in order to fully think through all of their options.
Camels often appear in dreams when people are dealing with aggressive behaviors. This can be in the form of 1) excessive strong personality, 2) warlike conduct or purposefully ignoring reason or facts, or 3) emotional overwhelm
Too strong personality: The appearance of a camel may also suggest that dreamers are struggling with their own aggression. People often find camels to be abrasive and annoying creatures in real life, but in dreams, their presence is usually a sign that they are apathetic to others or just poorly equipped for dealing with the world.
Ignoring reasons: Since the appearance of a camel in dreams tends to symbolize an unknown, unpredictable power, it can also be said that this animal’s presence in dreams represents something unexplainable.
When people find themselves dealing with aggressive behavior, they may be unable to fully comprehend what they are dealing with. It is as if the aggressive energy behind it is not of this world and therefore inexplicable..
Emotional Overwhelm: this happens when the dreamer is not able to control his emotions and he becomes a victim of them going from a state of happiness or sadness quite quickly.
If one is having dreams about a camel often, then it might be related to one’s dissatisfaction with life. The reasons behind this are often related to discontent with one’s career, living conditions, family life, or relationships.
Camels can travel long distances and survive for months without water, which is similar to how one lives their life. Therefore, the camel in such dreams might just be a symbol for how someone really feels about their life.
For instance, if one’s life is too predictable or comfortable then it will bore them and they may start having dreams about camels.
If one has dreams in which the camel dies, this might be related to how he/she feels dissatisfied with their life in general but if the camel causes harm then it might have to do more specifically with what is happening in the person’s life.
The camel might also be a symbol of how one lives their life and their need to take risks or not.
The image of a camel symbolizes the power of God. It is also associated with wisdom and self-control. According to biblical texts, the camel has these attributes because it does not mess itself up like other animals do (it can go for days without water). However, this animal also represents stubbornness and unwillingness to listen to others. The camel’s dream image could mean that one needs to be more open-minded and less stubborn.
What is the spiritual meaning of a camel in a dream? Here are other explanations:
- Overcoming Difficulties: To see a camel in one’s dream means that you will overcome your difficulties and learn from your mistakes.
- Tolerance: It also suggests that one needs to be more tolerant towards others and think before acting.
- Overworked: The image of a camel may indicate that one is overworked.
- Hardships: If the camel is in one’s dream, it could also mean that one will experience hardships and problems, but they will be temporary.
- Adaptability: Another possible interpretation of this image is that one needs to adapt to change because it will positively impact their life.
- Journey: The appearance of a camel may be an omen for long journeys or even one’s journey through life.
Dreaming about being attacked by a camel is quite a rare dream. However, if you have been experiencing such an unpleasant encounter in your dream, 3 are the possible reasons to look after.
Escape from Life’s Drama
People dream about a camel attacking them in their sleep when they no longer want to put up with the drama in their life anymore.

When people dream about a dead camel it may indicate that someone needed closure or relief from an issue.
- Closure: Dreaming about a dead camel does not mean that the dreamer has an issue with camels specifically, but it may represent some type of closure for them. Dreams are the brain’s way of saying that it is time for the dreamer to move past or resolve whatever issue they are having.
- Relief: Dreams about dead camels can also be related to feeling relieved which may seem bizarre or unusual once the person wakes up.This often happens when someone has made a difficult decision regarding something in their life. These dreams are often very vivid because the brain is excited about being able to move forward with this new decision.
Dreams can be a powerful and cathartic way to process your thoughts. If you dream about camels, the meaning will depend on what type of camel it is and where you are in relation to the animal. Is it attacking you? Riding one? Dead ones represent different things depending on individual circumstances such as whether they were sick or not at time of death.
It’s important that we don’t take our dreams too literally; instead, we should let them provide us with guidance for how we might approach certain problems in life without taking an all-or-nothing stance.
The next time you have a dream about a camel, think back over recent events and see if there was any event or decision that may have spurred this particular vision–it will provide you with insight into your current mindset.
