What does it mean when you dream about devouring something?

Being eaten in a dream can reflect our feelings of being “eaten up” by someone or by the demands of our lives. If we are the devourer, then it can indicate that we are hungering for something, or that we are possessive. Being swallowed whole by a large creature is a widespread shamanic motif for personal transformation (e.g., Jonah and the whale). (See also Eating, Hunger).
