Words can harm as well as heal. They can be pure and honest and can be cleverly manipulated to disguise the truth. It's been said that the tongue is the strongest muscle in the body because it has the power to break a heart.
Our mouths, lips and tongues are the vehicles through which our emotions and thoughts find expression. Physically, we use these organs to convey affection as well as to inflict pain and pleasure. Please see these related articles:

Dreams where the mouth, lips or tongue is the central symbol might symbolize a need to express yourself or regret about something you've recently said. You may have recently been on the receiving end of harsh words that you may have taken to heart.
Dreaming of a deformed mouth or kissing someone with bad breath may symbolize lies, foul words or a toxic person. Have you been unkind or less than honest? Do you suspect that someone has been lying to you?
Perhaps a part of your personality needs to find an outlet for expression. Since the lips and tongue play a part in sexual interaction, your dream may reflect your feelings about this aspect of your life, especially if the dream involved oral sex. Of course, Sigmund Freud saw the mouth in dreams as a symbol of the female vagina. He also felt that this symbol could represent unresolved childhood issues that have manifested in immature behaviors such as biting and verbal aggression.
Is something going in or coming out of your mouth? Taking in a pleasurable substance symbolizes physical, spiritual or emotional nourishment. An unpleasant substance in your mouth or vomiting symbolizes something that you reject or want to get rid of.
If your dream involved words, could you hear them? What were they? Remember that the unconscious is quite fond of giving us word games and puzzles to solve! If you can't readily determine a meaning, be sure to jot them down in your Dream Journal for future reference when waking life gives you the clues you need.
The spoken word also has the power to create our experience. For instance, I realized that I was repeatedly saying that I was sick of dealing with a certain situation. Every time that situation came up, I felt sick!
So, be conscious of the words you speak and focus on words of self-love and positive intention for the coming year. May all your dreams come true!
