A famine symbolizes a lack of Spiritual sustenance, which should give us enough energy to remain active within the physical. Famine from an emotional perspective signifies a lack of love or appreciation. In waking life those in authority may seem to withhold approval or approbation. In the Western world famine is not so prevalent but as a dream image it may signify a concern over global matters. On a more personal note, such an image suggests that a project or task is no longer receiving the attention it deserves and, therefore, lacks nurturing. In both men?s and women?s dreams famine suggests a lack of resources, though which particular ones will depend on everyday circumstances.
