Consider the phrase ‘chewing the cud’- if you were doing so in your dream, perhaps you need to sit down and think long and hard about something before you act or speak about it again.

If you tend to say the first thing that comes to your mind, the dream could be telling you to hold back. This is not the time or place to be impulsive. 

Similarly, if someone else was chewing the cud, maybe you need to be the person to tell them that they should reflect and pace themselves before they make their next move. 

To chew the cud also refers to talking about something reflectively so consider who else was in the dream with you as this might be the very person you need to ruminate with or indeed- over. 

Cud is defined as partly digested food that is being chewed on for a second time, so the dream could be a sign that you need to give something or someone a second chance. 

Perhaps you have been too hasty and it would be in your interest to give up more of your time to a person or project. 

If the cud had a foul taste, you may be disgusted by what you find or have found out upon a second glance. While this may not be what you wanted to hear, perhaps it’s for the best you know the truth now. 

On the other hand, if the cud tasted good, you may be enjoying the process of editing something to make it more effective or palatable. This may play to your strengths. 

The dream could be a pun for something you could have done or things that could have been. Think about what else was going on in the dream for clarification. For instance, if you saw a cow chewing cud- consider its surroundings. It’s possible if it was in a familiar location this is somewhere you could have visited lately but circumstances out of your control meant that you were unable to go.

Finally, to dream about partially digested food could mean that you haven’t quite come to terms with some recent news. You may need more time for it to sink in and you are still processing what it all means to you and your future. There is no rule for how long something like this will take to be fully understood so be patient with yourself.

Consider what was on the other side of the screen for additional meaning. Are you trying to keep two sets of people in your life from seeing each other? Are you attempting to keep a part of your life segregated from another because you feel they don’t mix? This parting of ways might be a healthy response to something that has happened lately, however it could be in response to your need to control things… to read more click HERE
