There is no doubt that dreams are a very interesting part of the human mind. The mind itself is still insufficiently known to the human race so we don’t know the way it works exactly, even though we live in the 21st century.
Either way, it’s one complex topic, so to speak, a deep thought. So, we’re not going to talk about that today. Dreams seem to be easier to explain. As we said a moment ago, dreams are an interesting part of our mind, our subconscious. People have always interpreted dreams because it is thought that our subconscious may be telling us something that way.
You’ve probably heard of lucid dreams, daydreams, nightmares, etc. However, while daydreams are fine, also lucid dreams sometimes, but no one wants to have nightmares. The usual dreams are quite normal, probably pleasant, without disturbing scenes or anything like that. Yet, on the other hand, nightmares do happen and this is nothing out of the ordinary.
For example, a very common nightmare is when you dream of falling, you dream of a free fall that lasts so long. This, but also any other disturbing dream, isn’t pleasant at all. But today we’ll talk about one such dream.
Namely, dreaming of murder is probably one of the most disturbing dreams that a person can dream of. But what if you dream that someone is trying to kill you? Sure, it’s even more uncomfortable and scary, isn’t it?
Today we will try to clarify and interpret a dream like this. What does it really mean if you dream about someone trying to kill you? So, if you’re ready, let’s get started.
In short, what does it mean?
We have concluded that the dream of someone chasing, attacking, or possibly killing you, which is, by the way, most disturbing, is very unpleasant. Either way, it’s just a dream, so it shouldn’t be analyzed with too much concern.
In most cases, dreams like this indicate that you have control problems in life. You may be afraid of your actions if you lose control, you may be afraid that you are under the control of a certain person and that it affects your life and the decisions you make. Simply put, the fact that you are being attacked, or someone is trying to kill you, is most often interpreted as your own insecurity that you have complete control over your life.
What does it mean, in detail?
Well, the fact is that every dream has multiple interpretations, and can be understood in one way or another. It all depends on how you, as the person who dreamed, experience it all.
Yes, we know it all looked horrible, someone is trying to kill you, he/she is chasing you and there is simply no way out to escape and save your life. Fortunately, you woke up! You’re probably sitting there thinking about what that dream actually means? What is your subconscious trying to tell you, what is it warning you about?
Previously, in the section where we briefly talked about this dream, we said that this kind of dream, or rather a nightmare, most often refers to some real situations or problems from your real life. In particular, in this case, it is about control.
Do you think you are under someone’s control? Does anyone interfere too much in your important decisions or your life in general? If so, then this is the interpretation of your dream.
It is likely that someone close to you thinks that he/she has the right to decide for you. You simply feel that you are under the control of that person and you cannot resist and take matters into your own hands.
While you may not think too much about that when you are awake, you do think when you are asleep. Your consciousness may not want to address this issue, but the subconscious believes that there is a problem and that you need to deal with it. Now it is up to you to decide what to do next.
Aside from this meaning, this dream of someone trying to kill you can also signify your intention to distance yourself from someone you know in real life. If someone often brings you unpleasant situations, situations in which you find it difficult to cope, then it is likely that you would rather avoid every next meeting with that person.
Another interpretation that certainly seems pretty understandable is that you are actually trying to get away from something, whatever it is. For example, it may be some new challenge that scares you. Whether you’re getting a promotion, starting to work in a new job, or something like that. Maybe your subconscious is actually using the attacker/killer as a metaphor for the problem and your fear of it. Simply, you are afraid to reach a new level, that is, you are afraid of the unknown and possible failure that meeting a new challenge can bring.
Details to pay attention to
We have mentioned many times that a dream is a phenomenon through which the subconscious actually sends us certain messages. Although there are general interpretations that we mentioned above about this dream, there are also certain details that can explain your dream even more precisely.
For example, the first thing you need to remember is the weapon the killer used (firearm, knife, sword, etc.), as well as the point on your body where you were attacked (head, torso, back, etc.). For example, if the attacker/killer used a knife and stabbed you, say in the back, such a dream indicates betrayal. You may not follow your principles, the ideas that have guided you so far, so you feel like a traitor.
If the point of attack is the neck, or rather someone is trying to slaughter you, then maybe it’s time to say your opinion. Don’t be afraid to speak for yourself and say what you think.
Another significant spot in the heart. If you are stabbed or in any way injured or attacked in the area of the heart, the subconscious is actually telling you that you are suppressing feelings towards someone for reasons known to you.
As for the weapons used, we must add that the use of the sword in such dreams is often interpreted as self-criticism, or that you don’t agree with something you have done or plan to do. If it is a firearm, then it is interpreted as a non-support of your ideas or actions by another person.
