Hmong Superstition, Beliefs, and Dreams

Hmong superstition, beliefs and dreams

This is only, many of the few Hmong superstitions,.. I will add more...

Being hmong and growing up my parents would always always remind us not to point at the moon,.. And if you did, your ears would get cut. Because it is believed that the Moon gets offended and therefor cuts your ears. You can appease it by saying, “Quav qaib, quav npua, quav nyuj, quav twm (Chicken poop, pig poop, cow poop, buffalo poop).” Or simply rubbing some (yours) saliva behind your ears. Once when we were younger, My sister's ears were sliced, after she pointed to the moon...

IF you go on a far away trip or vacation, you must call your spirit to go home with you. This is for everyone, children and adult. And if you have been hospitalized, you must call your spirit home too. You call your spirit by saying your name and if its someone else, say their name. For example you can say, "Susan, we are leaving home and no longer staying at this place." For infants, you must call their spirit home every time, no matter where you go, near or far. It is believed that babies, (infants) have the biggest spirit. And if one were to forget to call their child home, you can easily fix this by, doing a "Hu Plig" or spirit calling ceremony. This usually requires a shaman (a healer practitioner who connects through the spirit world). A spirit calling ceremony can also takes place anytime, you or someone is or becomes frighten, is extremely sad/upset or falling down (tripped on something, falling over, car accident, etc.)

If a bird flies into your home, it is bad luck, or a bad sign. You must call a shaman to fix it. Or if possible, catch it and cook it for dinner.

After a woman goes through labor, miscarriage or abortion, she cannot visit her side of the family, until her 30 day chicken diet is over. She can only visit her husband's immediate family that shares the same ancestors.

Dreams can be good and bad. Dreams in hmong cultures indicate what's going to happen in the future. When you dream about poop, it means earning money or losing money. For example, if you dream about getting poop all over yourself and no matter how much you've tried wiping off, its still on you, it means you are receiving money. But if in that same dream, your poop comes off and you see yourself cleaning the poop, and its draining away, it mean you are losing money. If you have a bad dream, you can actually prevent it from occurring by spitting saliva in the toilet along with your first morning pee and or poop. You have to speak out to your dream "You stupid dream, I'm spitting you out and flushing you away with these urine and poop, go away and do not return!" I do this all the time and it has worked for me! And when you are having a lot of repeated bad dreams, it's a bad sign and you should contact a shaman to fix this.

If you dream about snake(s), it means you or someone you know is pregnant. If you dream about eating fruits/vegetables, it is a sign that you are pregnant with a girl. If you dream that you are being shot, and can feel the bullet, you're having a boy.

Don't make fun of handicapped, deformed, disfigured kids or else your kids will end up the same.

Don't whistle at night.

Don’t fall at a funeral or you will see the dead person spirit and they will follow you home making you sick and worst scenario dying.

Children who still have all their baby teeths, can see ghost.

You can't cut your hair at night, its bad luck!

If you get pepper in your eyes, rub your saliva on your pinky toe.

Eye Twitching: I'm still learning what this really means,. but so far, I understand that it means I will be shedding tears, usually hearing some bad gossips/rumors.

ok.. so i'm curious. My in-laws just told me today, that when breastfeeding an infant/baby, we have to wash the baby's mouth before kissing him/her otherwise, the ones who kisses the baby before washing his/her mouth is going to get struck by lightning.. why is this?

Syd 4 years ago

It has to do with the superstition of breastmilk. Hmong superstition says you will get struck by lightning if you drink breastmilk (there is an exception for the baby).

If you were combing your hair, adoring your beautfil long hair and no hair is falling off... Its a good dream. BUT if your hair is shedding, it may mean a sign of losing money.

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Ntxawm: from my own experience; it may be a false pregnancy,. Or miscarriage, or someone or yourself is trying to get pregnant.

Sthao: are you married or in a relationship?? Your relationship is not going well

Mai: I have heard that it's a bad sign. Sickness or something tragic. Just be careful.

Alaya 2 years ago

Now my question is, where did all of the superstitions come from? What happens if you did it?

connie 2 years ago

I have been having a lot of dreams of dying or death or even scary dreams since I became pregnant. I have a feeling its a bad sign but is it bad for my baby? I would call a shaman but I am Christian so I cant do that. Also, oddly I had a dream that I gave birth to my baby but it was a horse?! lol what could that possibly mean?!

Mfang2013 2 years ago

I had a dream, or I thought it was a dream that someone knocked on my window & told me to open the door for them in Hmong. I was half awake & half asleep but it felt real. My younger sister usually goes out and play with the neighbors. When she returns, she knocks on my window & ask me to open the door for her. Am I just thinking too much?

Virginia 2 years ago

I had 2 strange dreams this past week. In first dream i saw a big dish of scrumptious rice i tasted some of it when some body told me it's made if monkey brain and turned away disgusted. In the next dream i saw my two yrs old nephew sitting in a tall tower made of pans in our house and someone i know was trying to wash my nephews poop. Seeing this i got angry and told them to remove baby from the pans. It's poop in the pans. Next my nephew is in my arms and I'm trying to find toilet to wash him. And then i woke up.

I'm really disturbed by these dreams.

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Connie: I dont think you should worry much, i'm sure you will have a healthy pregnancy and baby. Its a sign of good health and protection from your guardians

Mfang2013: Good that you didn't open for them. I wouldn't either.

Virginia: Poop is a sign of money,. basically your dreams is protecting your asset from others, because only you can touch it. Some type of money or income, small or big is destine for you, thats why you cant find a toilet.

Lisa 2 years ago

I never had dreams in general until I graduated from high school.

I dreamed about getting chased and beat up and saw blood, then later ended up getting a ticket going home from work.

I dreamed about my younger sister getting pregnant.

My last dream that I could remember is myself getting killed.

alicia 2 years ago

Idk if this is a superstition or true but I've heard that if you are on your period and you go to a river or a lake you can be followed home by this true??

What does it mean if you dream that you go bamboo picking??

chia leng 2 years ago

@lisa, I believe that from my knowledge,since you didn't get a reply from her, She must not know. But if you dream blood you will lose money. Sometimes if you dream about people getting pregnant,it is true. But,not always.And lastly,if you dream that you get killed,it only means that your sickness will go away. Well,at least from experience and words from the og's that's been true. There you go,hopefully its helpful!!

Kelsys 2 years ago

I had a dream that my family bought this big house and we were going through it looking into all rooms. Up stairs was fine but we wanted a cleaning done in the home. And down stairs we walk into a bathroom and inside was a lion & tiger. So we had someone stay at the home until the spritual cleaning was done. After that went to the house and the lion & tiger was gone. I vistie the home n the man doing the cleaning was there and the home was clean n clear. Next step was making sure the ground of the home was clean, then I had woke up from my dream. I just don't understand what this dream was trying to tell me? I woke up confuse

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Cara: I wouldn't be worried. Usually it doesn't mean anything.

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Kelsys: I have had several dreams like yours before too. And still figuring out what exactly it means. Although it's still a big mystery to me, from my experience and what I have learned from others,. It has something to do with who you are and being rooted or grounded. The house represent a place of feeling secure, safe. Usually (in your dreams) when you walk into a house where it is filthy and unclean., your guardians are protecting your spirit from being in a disastrous place. (Just my thoughts on it)

Celeste ledet 2 years ago

I dreamed I was being chased by a snake, no matter what I tried doing the snake was always following me, if I was in a high place the snake would jump up and try to stay by me, I was with my friend Shea in the dream. And Shes pregnant outside of my dream, so what does that mean?

What does it mean when I keep dreaming that my teeth falls out.

Also, we just recently moved into a new place and there's this cat that always sits on the porch ledge and looks/faces our window? Is it BC the lights are on or does it mean anything?

okmoua 2 years ago

My cousin had a dream about me and her going to a tournament/farm looking like place to pig a pig. I told her that I needed a pig so that I can so a Hu plis for me. I choose the pig but the guy who was selling it said that the pig was very naughty so he cut off his back legs. The pig was still alive so we took the pig and started walking up a mountain. Going up the mountain we met these to woman who told us that instead of taking turns carrying the pig that they will cut the pig in half. ( from head to but) they starred cut in the pig and it really freaked up out so we told them that we didn't want to pig anymore and starting running away. Even though we ran we still kept coming back to the same place. She woke up from the dream and her daughter was sick and couple days later a bird hit my car window. Help

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

bao: Dreaming about your teeth falling out is not a good sign. With me, it lead to sickness/illness. Depending on which tooth it was... sometimes its someone close to you becoming sick. But if you are concern, seek advice from the elders., they know what to do.

okmoua: Bird hitting your car is a bad sign, I would seek help from the elders.

Gio 2 years ago

I dreamed that I was pooping. And when I turned to see my poop I got scared. It was really big. I was socked. I didn't see anything like that before. So I started flashing it out. I do remember going away once i started flashing it out but I needed to do it couple times the more I was doing the more was gone. I don't remember if everything was gone.

shekatie profile image

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Mai: Sometimes we dream of what our heart desires,. perhaps your dreams is for-telling you something.

Marcia: I'm sincerely sorry for your lost ones. Snakes in dreams, as I know it, are children spirits, both bad and good ones. It could possibly mean that they(lost ones) are hungry. I would definitely seek a higher shaman for the correct interpretation and help. Good luck and keep me updated. Sending you and your baby my blessings.

Gio: According to my experiences, its something that will cause you to lose money,. like paying a large bill, or something in that area.

I had a dream about a green cobra snake but it didn't bit me it was just standing at the farm looking at me and a little grl trying to chase me around.

Honey 2 years ago

I dreamed that I was laying down with my knees bent, I woke up and saw a black widow and a hairy spider under one of my knee. They were inside a thick web Under my knee and I tried to grab them out from the web. The black widow bit me & I flung my hand around like crazy to get rid of them but got bit on my left side somewhere by either the same black widow or a different one. I panicked and cried so hard from the bottom of my soul because I knew what would follow is my death if I didn't go to the hospital. What does this mean?

I've been having dreams about fishes for the past 2 days. Does it mean anything? I know this might be a stupid question but I just want to be extra sure.

shekatie profile image

shekatie 2 years ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Maylonakim: Its a sign of bay spirits, doesn't necessarily mean anyone is pregnant

Honey: Just becareful. It just a dream of your fears.

Lou: Fishes are usually a sign of something you will receive of value,. for example: money, income,..

mai 2 years ago

I keep having dreams about animals. Last night I had a dream that a dog was chasing me and it bit me. What does it mean?

Chiessy 24 months ago

I honestly believe in calling your child's spirit home. There have been multiple times when I traveled far to see my side of the family and have forgotten to call my son's spirit home. He'd cry a lot and we'd have to bring a candle outside , light it and call out to him and tell him to follow the light of the candle home.

Hlinra 23 months ago

I have these unexplainable dreams.

Either me and partner running away in a game or something. Then seeing me and my family members getting chased and trap somewhere. Just yesterday night i dreamed tat just me and some ppl i know but cant see clearly who they were to me but we were in these plains of fields more like a hill going to be mountains. I then turned around and saw soo many leopards/lynx and one other type of animals but idk and wasn't paying full attention to what it was. All these animals where just sitting and hunting around like we were at the zoo but no cages. Plus i circled around myself and there was jus hundreds of leoparf/lynx. They weren't harming us. But we were scared. I then turned around and ran to the top of the mountain peak and somehow made it and look down everything was soooo high! Then this random guy was like a rock climber and then gladly helped me down with an airbag or something. He was a kind gentlemen and took me home to where i used to live back in Fresno but i dont no more. And no he didn't fully take me home. I said no and just ran away from him. Weirdly. What does this mean? Yes i am going onto a trip this sunday for an 2hour drive by highway near the ocean. What should i do and suspect?

shekatie 23 months ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Hi hlinra...

From my own experience., when I dream about any type of Lynx, leopards, lions, Tigers... It's usually means for me that I will hear about death/funeral. It could be different for you., you just have to see what the outcomes are. Be cautious and alert on your drive. And please update with me... Thanks for taking the time to share your dreams.

shekatie 23 months ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Hlinra: Sorry to hear about your friend's uncle... I'm glad all you were safe. Hmong clothes?? it depends what your dream is about. It could mean several things. But yes, it could be dab, it could be a sign of sickness/illness, or a warning....

hli nra 23 months ago

Oh I see. My dream of tat consist of me packing some food and giving it to a hmong old lady...while she was going to drive out. Weird....idk and I keep hearing if you dream of being preggo or holding a baby means ur going to get sick too? Hmm

shekatie profile image

shekatie 23 months ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Hlinra: it seems to be a pleasant dream,. because you weren't frighten or or scared by her... sometimes those things come to you to seek help and therefor, you were able to fulfill it. I had a dream once that an old hmong lady, in hmong clothing, with thick long dirty hair., she walked into my home not to threaten me, but to ask if I can remove bugs out of her hair. Yes, being prego does signify sickness,. However if you are giving labor and the baby is delivered, it means you healed from your illness,...

i dreamt that my close cousin died and i was really sad bc we were best friends growing up. everyone kept telling me that everything was fine bc he was sick for a long time and that he was prepared and made peace. then it turned out that i was dead and lingering around my mom bc i missed her so much and she knew that i was there too which made her happy. the only weird thing was that in the dream i felt like i had to follow this person that i knew........and then i woke up.

shekatie 22 months ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Youa: when you dream of someone's death or your own death,. there is a superstition that it means you or the person you dream of dying will heal from a sickness or illness,. I cant say that everything will heal,. but your health condition will get better. OR maybe your cousin is trying to tell you something... maybe its his time... You just have to pay close attention to the outcome. Please do let me know.

Lala: I can tell you that dream #2 could mean that you could be expecting. However your other dreams, doesn't seem so pleasant... I can't tell you exactly what they signify,.. but just be extra cautious; dog bite is not good to dream about. It seems you will encounter a problem that you will be unclear about what lies ahead. Just pay attention to the outcome,. Thanks for sharing and please do update with me.

For the first time I dreamed of a dragon. It was really strange because it was a beautiful golden dragon swimming under the bridge that some people and I were standing on. I wanted to take a picture of the dragon but just as soon as I could take one, the dragon turned around and wanted to take me because I was going to take a picture of them. It was scary because it shook the bridge to its breaking point. The dragon's head was huge when looking at me. I pleaded to the dragon and finally it left.

I constantly dream of one of my sister-in-law who try's to start a conversation with me but I refused to speak with her because of how she treated me in the real world. Some of those dreams involves her and a baby (I believe it's a boy). One of the dream, recently, was her telling me how pretty my paj ntaub I bought, after she said that her and her husband got into a little argument. I did not have dreams about her until she took her kids and husband to California to be with her side of the family. Which I careless, I just want to know why I constantly dream about her. It's been bothersome.

I dreamt that I was inside my parents house, watching my daughter through the back door as she played outside. Then out of nowhere a lioness approaches her. I panicked and waved for her to run inside and I can tell my daughter was scared too. The lioness kind of just lingers around her, watching her, almost like it was preying on her. Finally when the lioness looked away, my daughter ran into the house. I woke up with a very uneasy feeling. Please help.

I've been dreaming about lions and tigers. Every time I dream them, I'm at my parents house and they are in the backyard. My parents backyard is a forest. They will try to come at me for some reason. So I'm just wondering what it means in the Hmong way.

But when I quickly hold her. It was an half white egg shell. Inside was white but have heart beat. I somehow quickly put my hand on some water holding to drop some few water on the white egg shell. It turn like my dog but not, like a baby but not. I just woke up. I feel sad and wonder why? Weird? Does it mean anything?

Also while carry a baby with me.

2) I dream bout a white beautiful big white snake. It was wrap and sleeping. Also it was pregnant too. Than there was a door the open gap. I quickly wake up and gone. It didn't bite or anything. Wonder what it mean?

3) Going to the mall or store but away have that big tiger follow me. I was scary that it'll bite me or kill me. But it keep following me and I keep trying to run away to get rid of that tiger but it still keep following me. It didn't harm me or anything. I've been dreaming so many time. Nothing happen to me tho. But just wonder whats the meaning of dream a tiger?...

Kia: Fishes in dreams means good luck. You just have to see what the outcome is. Sometimes it doesn't mean anything.

Maiv: Frogs? Im not sure what that means.

Rose manner: Poop on your body means income., money,

Kaj Nrig: Just be cautious, avoid going out for a few days. Death means a new beginning, healing and overcoming fears.

I dream that my boyfriend and I was arguing about personal stuff then suddenly as we were walking towards his car I saw a car driving towards our way. Then suddenly they started shooting at my boyfriend but lucky I was right behind the car, but the bullet still hit me from under the car and I got shot couple of times on my leg and I felt the bullet going through me and I just drop and I figure I shouldn't come up so I turn my head toward the shooter and they were still shooting so I just lay there and next you know the doctor said there were no big injuries. What is this telling me? Because I felt so real.

shekatie 12 months ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

I had a dream that I was walking around my old apartment and as I was walking I find a paper lying on the ground so I picked it up and as I picked it up there was a dragon looking at me from the roof of the apartment. It said that it wanted to marry me and I said no I have a boyfriend. It kept persuading me but I didn't let. After saying no it swoops down and takes me to a desert . I saw this old lady with white hair and some of my family members. I asked her to help me , I don't want to go with the dragon, she's says for me to go. And I decided I should go, I had a feeling she had something set up to free me. So the dragon took me to its place in the desert and as he did cops came and covered me and the dragon with the blanket and was shooting at us but I wasn't shot at and the blanket was see through. The dragon then disappeared.

In My dream everyone had magicpowrs, this happened at my parents current house/farm. First me and my hubby killed a poj dab child (a kid who used to ride the bus with me)The poj dab child let us kill him, i was kinda sad when we did? But he seemed so sad? First i think we slit it's throat from the right then broke it's neck to make sure it was dead then threw it in the pond with what seemed like some other bodies. When we were heading back home i first saw one bright moon in the sky with a halo around it then the more i looked i saw 5 or so moons with halos around them in the sky. The sky seemed like it was a dark purple. And also I felt like I was being watched the whole time all of this was happening. Then when we got in the house poj dab and poj ntxoog started coming out every where outside and we were using magic to fight them. Just wanting some insight on what this could mean. Thanks a bunch!!

Today, I had a dream that a big dog bit me on my thigh and wouldn't let go of it. I was crying so hard.

Also, I dreamed that a four month baby gave birth to a snake and that snake had four souls. One of those soul was cousin. They turned to human ghosts where they only stayed and left during New Years. When they would leave, my grandpa would blow the qeej to guide them home and I would cry because my cousin was leaving again.

Lisa: Dreams about snakes usually means pregnancy, someone in you know is pregnant, or it could be you. Sometimes it just means your baby spirits are close to you. Don't give up on them.

Samantha: Its definitely a calming dream. I dont think there is anything you should worry about. Plants growing is a sign o fertility. its a good dream! good luck! ;).

The Hmong chicken is delicious. And the smell is comforting. I had the honor of working with several professionals who are Hmong and I found the superstitions, the culture, the clothing absolutely fascinating.

I hope to someday hear how the Hmong chicken diet for mothers does or doesn't make sense. I have a feeling the high protein is advantageous to the new mother.

Any further insights you can offer?

My Parents have passed away for a few years now and once in while I have dreams about them. In those dreams my dad would come to me without any clothes on and lecture me.

We were like somewhere and like selling things for new year and someone says there is a specific time were three big bulldogs would come and kill you if you weren't sleep by noon. Then a siren went on which means the dogs are coming so we all vanished to sleep then I saw the dogs coming telling my family to sleep asap. I slept with my aunt and uncle and then we heard the door open and it was my other aunt. She went to the table of shaman things and pray for protection and she says that something going to happen and tells me to pray for myself. Right when I was going to, I blacked out and woke up. I told my friend about this and she say it's a bad sign and for me to just stay home for a few days. I'm curious, is it bad?

What does it mean? Before that, I've also had a dream that a snake was trying to attack my nephew and my mom while we were in the car. I was afraid that it would bite them so I decided to grab on the snake and throw it out the car (we were in the car) but as I threw it out, it bit my arm. What does this means?

ANy dreams about snake is a symbol of pregnancy or children spirit that are close by. If you saw yourself in labor it means you are healing from an illness.

i had a dream that i had went went down to the lake and there were a group of people trying to catch fishes. From there i passed a guy who had just caught an enormous size cat fish and i went to my friend who was at the end and asked if he got any luck and he said no and so i told him that the guy over there had just caught a bunch of different kinds of fish. We went to go look and there were crabs and lobsters and fishes. Turns out he was a japanese fisherman. There were goods playing with the fishes he had caught and he seemed like an angry old man. We were trying to help him and so there was a bag of red crabs that were his. I tried to pick it up and help him with it, Crabs were falling out of the bag and all of a sudden the bottom ripped and they all fell out. Me and my friends just said forget it and took off. The old man ran after us but he didn't speak no language. In the dream the old man just made noises. So i went back to help him cause i felt bad and when i got there, there was this plastic tub that had ice and a lobster and crab. I had the water hose and i guess i was filling it up. The lobster wasn't moving but the crab was trying its hardest to get out of the cold water. The old man had so much crabs that i was so confuse of how to help him. I asked my buddy where is he going to put all of these crabs and i turned around and there was this restaurant that the old man was trying to tell people to get out so we can put the crabs in there. But..... the dream changed to something different and there was this girl that i use to like. I was telling her that i was gonna move back. I was helping her clean up her moms place and in there we had something going on but i woke up. You have any idea what it means?

The other day I dreamed about 3 dragons. 2 dragons (1 white/yellow like the snake & 1 neon green) who lived underwater (they were regular size dragons) & there was the other one who ruled the sky & he's pure white gold & he is 2X bigger than the other 2. All I remember when I woke up from this dream was, I was helping the 2 dragons who lived underwater start a fire like how you would when camping. & the dragon from the sky had flown down to tell me something, but I don't remember much of what he had said. But I have the feeling where he wasn't too happy towards me.

Yoh: that is an add dream. I am not too sure of what it means. But a Horse means its your "khua neeb" or spiritual guides., To me it just sounds like its a spiritual baby dreams. It could be someone you know is pregnant., or just probably dreaming of your baby spirits, which is common. Hope this helps

shekatie 9 days ago from Somewhere in the East Coast Author

Ying: sometimes dreams are a way that spirits can connect or communicate with us... and it seems that you are more sensitive in that spiritual part. Spirits/ghost/entity only reveal theirselves to those that they chose to show themselves to.... if they aren't harming you... It's nothing bad.
