Violent Dreams

Violent dreams are relatively common and may be a reflection of the confusion and conflict that the dreamer experiences in daily life. Dreams with violent themes suggest that the dreamer has unconscious negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, and anger. If you are not dealing with these feeling consciously, your dreams are compensating and bringing into awareness the need for honest reflection and emotional balance in daily life.

If you are being ATTACKED, then maybe you are feeling somewhat vulnerable in some area of your daily life. If you are doing the attacking, it may be that you are releasing some of your frustrations and anger while expressing negative feelings in such ways that you are unable to do in daily life.

If you are KILLING someone in your dreams, you are probably expressing hostile feelings. Consider this an opportunity to look at your negative feelings and decide what would be the best and the least destructive way to address them. If you are a witness to a killing, you may be reflecting on changes going on around you that you don't particularly like.

SHOOTING someone or being shot yourself may reflect aggression, powerlessness, release of strong and dangerous emotions, and/or symbolize a conclusive event in a particular situation or relationship.

Dreaming about a WAR or a battle suggests that the dreamer has internal conflict. One part of personality or psyche may be battling with another for control and the dream reflects this internal war. Another reason for dreaming about war is that you may be faced with a situation that requires you to be aggressive or assertive and to come to terms with opposition. War veterans and others who have experienced war first hand may, from time to time, have such dreams based on memory and trauma.

I dreamt a woman I don't know ran into a limo, which might have been hers, to escape a man. But the limo driver was working with the him. The driver activated the front seats, somehow, and they slid backwards and began to press on the woman. I woke up before she could be killed.

Anonymous, a woman in your dream could be you. This dream portrays underlying anxiety due to feelings that someone or something makes a pressure or demands you can hardly handle.

No it doesn't. Woman in your dream is just the opposite, more feminine and gentle side of your personality.

In a dream I was driving along in a slightly bad neiborhood in my town. A little girl ran out in front of my car to get her ball. I slamed on my brakes and the car behind me crashed in to me, but it really wasn't that serious. As me and the guy in the other car were waiting for the cops to come some gang looking guys walked up to us. the guy took off running, I did too but fell. One of the guys drew out a gun nd shot me. Everything went black and I screamed no.

In a dream I was backing out of my driveway, in the early hours of the morning so it was still dark. For some reason I stopped at the end of the driveway and noticed a hooded figure walking towards my car on the passenger side. I hit the door locks button, but the stranger opened the passenger door. He stuck what I thought was a gun in my side and told me to drive. I couldn't see his face, but I had this overwhelming feeling he was going to kill me. I awoke quite frightened and when I left my house for work this morning, I remained just as scared.

I dreamt that I'm dreaming that my older brother was a monster. He chopped my two feet and I screamed very loud. Then I walk very fast to my sister then when I came near to her, I noticed that my feet are not chopped then my sister said that Daniela was the one who heals it but I don't even know that person. Then I woke up (but still I'm dreaming). After I woke up, I tell that to my parents and my sister (in my dream) but they are not listening to me....

couple of nights ago i had a dream that my dad was stabbed. I was with my family in an expensive car. my mom and dad kept having arguments like they always do. My mom was driving and we hit a car. It was a very small collision. all of us got out of the car and my dad drove it into a parking lot with the people who were involved in the accident to negotiate. and after a while when i felt somethings wrong, i went in to check on him and found out that he was stabbed. I went back to look for a knife to help him, but i could not find any. i went back into the parking lot with bare hands and i saw my dads body on the floor and thats when i woke up. could you tell me what this dream means? i don usually believe in these sort of stuff, but this dream is driving me crazy!

Hello spirita, I greet you will love and peace.

I have had different dreams in the past couple of days. I am writing you hoping maybe you can help me in some kind of way. First let me start off my saying I am in a part of my life that I am starting to be more spiritual and in touch with my 'higher self'.

So i do not know if maybe these different dreams and my new 'awakening' has anything to do with his.

But the first dream I had was about a praying mantis that kept wanting to stick to me, and in the dream i see myself trying to kick it off.

The second dream was about a zombie that kept chasing me and trying to engulp himself, sort of felt like in the dream like he was trying to become me or wanted me to become him......Any help and advice is greatly appreciated.

Love and peace

Todd

I had a dream where I felt very dark and evil, I saw people in a room pouring a dark colored substance on a creature human maybe but extremely deformed or mutated, decomposed? I lost control I found an axe nearby and started slashing them all I didnt let any of them leave the space, one tried to crawl away by then I was amused by the pain, and I swung the axe down into his skull . There was alot of blood shed (10+ people) I was fearful when I awoke because bloods scent lingered in my room the next 15-20 minutes.

For some reason I would always have dreams about shooting. I don't usually sleep long enough to get to the point that I've gotten shot but I do know what I'm their target. Also,sometimes i will have dreams about my aunt that passed away recently. She's telling me things in her dreams and I never knew about her and come to find out, they are all true.

I'm a female police officer. I keep dreaming that I get shot. Seems like every night. How can I fix this to stay focused with every day life?
