When you see or eat a shrimp in your dream it’s possible you are feeling insignificant in your waking life. Maybe your friends and family have experienced events that have overpowered yours and you feel overlooked right now.
Alternatively, you may feel like you want to hide from the world and be left alone, either as a result of your perceived insignificance or because you are in a place where you need some ‘me time’.
Another interpretation if you were eating a shrimp is that you feel powerful and superior during your waking hours. Perhaps you have just received a promotion that sees you in a high ranking position or maybe you are brimming with confidence right now and it's making you feel bigger and better than everyone else.
It’s possible this has gone too far and you are becoming arrogant- you may want to take things down a notch or two or you may end up losing allies and embarrassing yourself.
Another thought process is that you desire something small but significant or expensive.
Pay close attention to the dream as is may be telling you something you have failed to see lately. Consider the common phrases associated with fish like ‘a fish out of water’ for instance. Are you in unfamiliar and uncomfortable surroundings at present either in your personal or professional life? Perhaps you see a situation in your waking hours as ‘fishy’. Something doesn’t feel right about it so perhaps you need to trust your gut on this one and take a step back. Think about the other expression- ‘like a cold fish’- is someone being hard-hearted or unfeeling towards you at present? If so, do you need to make them aware of how this is making you feel? Perhaps you are the person who is showing a lack of emotion towards someone else. If so- why? Is your behaviour driving this person away? This dream might also refer to someone you believe to be a ‘slippery’ character. It might be wise to keep your distance from this person if you doubt their trustworthiness...
