Interpreting popular dream themes (5) - Knives & Stabbing

I have a lot of dreams involving knives and stabbings so I thought I would write an article about interpreting this very common dream theme. 

If you wish to read my newer, updated, more comprehensive Dream Interpretation Guide on how to interpret the meaning of ALL VIOLENT DREAMS INVOLVING WEAPONS, please click on this title link: 'DREAM INTERPRETATION: Weapons & Violence in Dreams (Knives, Guns, Bombs etc)'.

A blade generally indicates that the dreamer is making some important or difficult decisions in their waking life. You must be able to make clear distinctions between available choices and may be walking a 'thin line' and must balance aspects of your life carefully. Carrying a knife in a dream represents anger, aggression, emotional conflict, division and separation. There is something in the dreamer's waking life that he needs to cut out or get rid of. It may be that the dreamer needs to sever ties or end a certain relationship. The knife symbol may also indicate sexual tension or confrontation. A knife wound symbolises masculine or animalistic aggression and power. 

If the dreamer merely observes a knife in their dream, this refers to frustration, anger and aggression. It can reflect the dreamer's insecurity and need for protection of some sort. A set of knives reflects inner turmoil and the fact that the dreamer is 'battling' with himself. The dreamer may be pushing himself to act in a manner which will cause pain to himself and those close to him, but is being inhibited by his mind.

If the dreamer is female, dreaming of being chased by a man with a knife, this typically symbolises a fear that the dreamer will be dumped and become single - they are struggling to keep their partner happy. Alternatively, it may represent the woman's desire to avoid aggressive sexual advances - a fear of penetration and masculine power. A knife may symbolise sexual immaturity and a danger in allowing this to be acted on in an unrestrained manner. Male dreamers often dream of knives when facing conflict over opposing ideas and agendas. A knife is symbolic of a piercing mind and intellect - if sharp and able to cut through objects. If blunt, it will represent the opposite. If the knife seen in the dream is double-edged - it shows an ability to both attack (i.e. impose one's will on others) and defend.

A knife may symbolise a need to get everything out in the open - so problems in the dreamer's waking life can be successfully confronted. Because knives are used to cut, slice and penetrate, this symbol will also relate to a need to delve deeper into a matter in order to bring about greater understanding and resolution.

To dream of another person holding a knife represents a loss of control or power in a situation or relationship. The person holding the knife may be symbolic of a source of dominant masculine power in the dreamer's waking life. 

To dream of being stabbed symbolises the dreamer being wounded by someone's words or actions - particularly within a domestic scenario. It may also represent guilt, shame and disgrace. The dreamer perceives that someone wants to see them lose or get hurt in some way. A dream of stabbing may indicate a struggle for power, inadequacy, betrayal or sudden shock. Dreaming of stabbing someone else represents the fact that the dreamer is taking out their anger or aggression on others. It may represent a desire to restore the dreamer's independence in a relationship or situation. It can also symbolise wanting to feel another's pain or know your actions are hurting them. The dreamer may also wish to take someone important away from someone else. Being attacked by many knives at the same time is indicative that the dreamer perceives himself to have many enemies or opponents and suggests a need to take pre-emptive action to protect oneself. Cutting yourself with your own knife is symbolic of deception or disappointment. Highly polished knives may indicate worry or anxiety. Giving a knife to someone as a gift symbolises the severing of a relationship with the person receiving the knife from the dreamer, or vice versa.

A broken blade indicates ambiguity, ambivalence or confusion regarding the waking life decision. The dreamer may have experienced counter-productive circumstances from their current actions. It may also symbolise the idea that anger is not the solution to problems - it is a warning to address waking situations calmly. Rusty knives represent dissatisfaction, domestic disputes and the separation of lovers. 

A butter knife symbolises ease and simplicity. Attempting to cut something with a butter knife indicates ineffectual actions and difficulty in completing tasks. The dreamer is lacking some knowledge or insight and may be embarrassed by their impotence. A dull or blunt knife symbolises the fact that hard work will lead to little gain or a bad result. A knife grinder/sharpener represents a loss of freedom and autonomy, or additionally, a heightened desire for separation or conflict in the dreamer's waking life. The dreamer is preparing or improving their ability to face such conflict or strengthen their power against an enemy. Also, a knife grinder appearing in a dream may indicate that someone is taking liberties with the dreamer's personal possessions. If the dreamer is female, the symbol of the knife grinder represents unhappy union and drudgery. A dreamer who dreams of sharpening a knife may be facing sexual temptation or the instinct to cheat on a partner or friend.

Dreaming of a pocketknife represents the notion that a good friend is hiding his or her true feelings, or alternatively, confidence that the dreamer can deal with any problem which suddenly arises. A dream about an electric knife represents the dreamer's power to get down to the truth of a situation quickly and easily. A penknife represents hidden intentions to defend a permanent choice or decision in the dreamer's life. It can indicate preparedness to stand your ground or an inability to discuss your true feelings with others. 

A butcher's knife represents conflict which is severe, drastic or unsympathetic. There is a problematic person in the dreamer's waking life (or a situation causing some problems to the dreamer) which requires the dreamer to give 100%, but does not offer any reward or anything in return. Someone wants the dreamer to fail. A butcher's knife may also symbolise unyielding beliefs or absolute unwillingness to compromise when dealing with such issues. The dreamer may fear that someone is out to get them, leaving them with nothing - or these actions on the part of the dreamer in relation to another person. A cleaver represents bravery and courageousness - and the ability to distinguish between right and wrong. 

Dreaming of being sliced by a knife during an operation is symbolic that something needs to be cut from the dreamer's waking life. The dreamer needs to make a drastic change or change their habits. If the dreamer is performing the operation on another, this means they are facing a deep problem or dealing with repressed issues. 

Finding a knife in a dream represents luck and profit in the dreamer's waking life. To pick up a knife symbolises that the dreamer is facing some quarrel or dispute which needs to be addressed. A knife in a sheath or scabbard represent a buried or settled quarrel or problem. A knife on a covered table indicates to the dreamer that he can rely on his friends' loyalty, while a knife seen with other household appliances or objects symbolises an invitation of some sort. Losing a knife tends to indicate loss in business.

In many cultures, the knife is symbolic of survival, protection and retribution. Islamic interpretations of the symbol of the knife state that the knife is representative of the dreamer's servant, right-hand man or someone else who protects the dreamer's interests in some way. The sharpness of the knife represents the implementation of the dreamer's will. A knife entering a sheath - like in Freudian dream interpretations - would symbolise male penetration of a female.If a bachelor obtains a knife in a dream, it is a symbol  that he is to soon be married, whereas if a woman dreams of handing a knife to another woman, the knife symbolises the love interest of the dreamer. Swallowing a knife represents the idea that the dreamer will 'consume' or take some of their child's inheritance or resources intended for their offspring. Typically, in Islamic interpretations of the knife symbol, the knife will represent the dreamer's son. For example, some interpretations suggest that dreaming of stealing a knife indicates heightened love for a son over and above other children of the family, while dreaming that you have been given a knife as your sole weapon is indicative that you will have a son, or find some form of brotherhood with another male - particularly in situations of conflict. If a pregnant woman dreams of a knife, it symbolises that she will give birth to a male child. Lacerating your own hands with a knife in a dream suggests that the dreamer is to witness something spectacular in their waking life. Holding a knife means that finances are due to come to the dreamer, although if the knife is poor in some way, this may be less than expected or needed. A table knife represents someone who is lazy and cheats at their work, while using a table knife symbolises the fact that a project supported by the dreamer is void or will not come into fruition. Strangely, if a teacher dreams of stealing a knife, Islamic interpretations suggest that this means the dreamer is sexually tempted by children and has desires to abuse a child in their care. I am not sure whether this is a particularly apt interpretation and obviously, care should be taken when reading meanings into any dream. Islamic interpretation of the knife symbol also highlights the meanings of proof or evidence - the dreamer may require a witness to assist him in his 'testimony' or 'trials' - a sharp knife would indicate that this 'witness' will come up to proof, while a blunt knife means the opposite. To dream of a 'trial' where the dreamer carries a knife which is sheathed, indicates the dreamer will defend themselves perfectly by themselves, without the assistance of others. A knife sharpener represents a teacher of adroitness, sageness or skills - and additionally, the dignified bearer of adversity, sobriety or a decisive person. In the negative, it can symbolise a troublemaker or vile personality who possesses some of these traits. 

Freudian interpretation of a knife, blade - or anything sharp and pointed which can cut or penetrate - typically refers to the psycho-sexual and phallic, specifically the penis. The dreamer who dreams of objects with a sharp edge desire to rush headlong into instinctual action without restraint.

  1. What if i dreamt that a loved one got killed in my dream and the person that killed my loved one came after me with shear like knives or large scissors but i advanced on them first stabbing them with the same scissor like knives that i grabbed to protect myself and to gain revenge. Then after that a baby came into the dream. What could that dream meaning fall under considering the motives and the shear like scissor knives?

    4. Hello,
      I dreamed that my kids father(ex boyfriend) and his now present wife appeared at my house while the children were playing outside. I had been feeling they would pop up and they did. I remember leaving the back door ajar so that I could see and hear my kids. I heard them outside and then saw them through the kitchen window quickly approaching the back door.(He and his wife). Ironically they made their way in before I could get to the door. Strangest thing was now there were three of them. It was as if he had a twin and the wife walked behind. The evil twin lunged toward me and started stabbing me. He had on shades and a hat. All I could think about was I'm about to die and I can't say I love you to my children or goodbye. I awoke from a dream that seemed so real.

    2. I think it has to do with 2 addictions or struggles that are partnered with the devil(the old enemy or past habit you broke)the 2 spiritual forces accociated with the 2 struggles were debating on who would get to hurt you more.2 struggles associated with a habit you broke in your past. You ran away, rrconized or should reconize those struggles or addictions not good for you so you avoid them(fleeing) they feared advancing because either Jesus is already with you as you are walking with him or Jesus is preventing those things from getting a hold of you. If you dont believe in Jesus, at least believe the rest.

    3. And or lies that are in 2 areas of your life relating to what was spoken to you in your past(old enemy)that is conflicting with what you know is true. You ran and they stopped pursuing because you fully believed the truth so the lies(conflicting-afflicting your mind) couldnt hurt you any more.

  3. I dreamt that I was a young child, and i stabbed another female child in the neck with a small sharp knife. When i stabbed her she continued rambling words i couldn't interpret. Even with a cut in her neck. I immediately regretted my actions and i didn't want her to suffer, so i stabbed her again. When she didn't pass out or anything, I tried to save her. I tried to cover the wounds with my hands. But when i did that, she would start choking i panicked. I didn't know what to do so i tried stabbing her again. I felt extremely guilty, i didn't know what to do. I was scared. I didn't even know who this little girl was. I don't recall ever seeing her before. Please help me understand this dream.

    2. When you were young or young at heart or didnt know any better you killed a desire of yours or something you used to enjoy doing because you feel you would be able to continue in what you loved doing so you killed that desire early on before you got to attacked to it.

  4. In my dream I was another woman (not myself), and I was being held captive on a large old-fashioned party boat. I had an opportunity to escape and so I ran, but people were everywhere and I had a frantic feeling as I was searching for somewhere to hide without being seen. I eventually found a closet at the foot of some stairs, and I tucked myself in as tightly as I could in the dark bottom. I felt so defenseless. And a little girl walked by, carrying a serrated paring knife. I looked at her pleadingly, she knew that I needed it, and gave it to me. Shortly after, a large man, wearing only shorts, came down the stairs and saw me. I could tell that something was wrong with him, as if he were hallucinating, and he had a very scary look to his eyes. I begged him to leave, but he came down on me, and so I stabbed him. More times than I could count. ...it didn't phase him at all. Blood was everywhere. And all of a sudden, he decided to walk away. As if nothing had happened. I was afraid that someone would see the blood and know where I was hiding, and that's when I woke up. Very unsettling.

    2. My moms facing away from me looking at our car parked in front of our house and then a man walked and brought out a pocket knife ready to stab her but I was able to scream to get her attention and called my dad so she was able to run away then I was able to run after the man my dad was able to shoot the man with his gun then i woke up what could possibly be the meaning of this

    3. Old fashioned party boat and ran-something you are doing habit, or whatnot that you are trying to run away from and hide(closet) from others. Little girl is your willingness to be free from what you are doing, or allowing that is not right. The man is your mind that is afraid and you attack the man-fighting in your thoughts then appearing to others that you are okay and nothing wrong. Jesus Loves you.

    1. Someone starved you of attention that you wanted(little girl). Someone finally has time to give you attention but afraid they will do same thing of withdrawing from you again. Someone a friend, or Jesus is keeping you from getting hurt and warning you to not let them deceive you and treat you this way by continuing to fellowship with them.

  8. In my dream I was talking to my cousin on my mobile when suddenly a boy (looking like a street kid) followed me. Realising I was about to be robbed I crossed the street but he followed me to the other end. I then grabbed a stick and confronted him. He took out a very big knife and attached me. I woke up before I could be stabbed.

  9. So the last three nights I have had dreams of being stabbed in the heart/chest/stomach. Two of which have stayed with me and I am trying to work out what to do with the information. What they mean I don't understand.
    In the first dream, I was at my mother's house in my old room with my husband. I think we were in the house alone. We heard a noise and my husband got up to check. My mother has a glass sliding door and a security sliding door which is what he opened to look outside for the noise. He opened and closed it and shrugged. As we were about to go back to bed, I had the thought that he hadn't closed the security sliding door only the glass one. So I went to check. I opened the door slightly and a hand forced it opened more and I was stabbed in chest/upper abdomen area. I then woke up.
    The second dream was in my own home. It started out as a sexual dream. I was performing oral sex on my husband and got up to go to the toilet/or heard a noise (not sure how I got to the back of my house). I noticed that our back door wasn't bolted shut (our toilet and bathroom are at the back of the house you have to walk past back door to go to toilet). So I opened it to close it properly and as I put my hand on the door, another hand pushed the door from the outside and came through to stab me in the heart. I woke up.
    Why am I opening doors and getting stabbed. I had a similar dream three nights ago but only remember the door and being stabbed.

    I had a recurring stabbing dream about six years ago but I could pinpoint what it related to. I wasn't being stabbed. My friend was at my house which had turned into a war zone and outside was like the end of the world. There were bombs going off etc etc. We were on the verandah and her partner came up and tried to kill her so she stabbed him. She immediately regretted it and was crying and upset. I hadn't seen my friend for a while at the time. I had not met nor seen her partner (as I had just moved back from living away) and when I described the man in my dream it was her partner.
    I know that this dream was to do with fear for my friend. Her partner had been cheating on her and they had just separated after 14 years. I could work out that one due to the fact what was happening but these stabbing dreams I can't pinpoint.

    1. Mother(emotions/heart).Your home=heart. Your hear trusts easily-sliding door, and open as sliding door could see through and security door-take security thinking youll petceive a threat to your security of your heart before you can get hurt. Your husband-your mind that you briefly thought if someone you started to trust appeared to be trustworthy. But when your mind later checks if they can, that person will force you to trust them and let them into your heart and then will soon or eventually hurt you some time after loving them and letting them into your heart.

    2. Second part: your housr is your heart. Love is a battlefield. Your heart will get hurt. Your friend-you care about-yourself. Your friends husband attacking your friend- your thoughts attacking yourself and are sorry that you said lies to yourself that hurt yourself.

    3. Or when you think everything is alright, something will happen that will hurt your heart that you cant control or keep out. You wont be able ro keep out the pain of what may happen, so pray to Jesus that he reveal what may happen doesnt.

  10. Earlier today I dreamt that I was in class and was told that my classmates were going to stab me to death during a video clip. I had no means of escape and was also told the professor was in on it. I should just accept my fate. During the movie, I believe I was stabbed several times as people watched or ignored the interaction; however, I was saved by several other individuals who carted me off bleeding.

    1. A dream you had that you felt all alone(orphan) believing. You perceived something was a threat to that dream and so you cut off that thing or person. But later that dream you had not the same and died anyway. (Black guy-thought of fear)
      It was your fearful thought that caused you to cut out what or who was threatening your dream.

  12. I dreamt that I learned that my sister's partner and her was planning my murder and a few of important people in my life (i.e friends) and a few collegues were also plotting it Together with them.
    So i was hiding on a flight of steps behind some plotted plants but my sister's gf found me and stabbed me on my right chest wall and I felt pain. I hid there for a while and a group of people whom I've never met, found me and was asking me to do a survey. I told them that I've been stabbed and they said no way, looked at me as though I was ccrazy and tried to walk a way but 1 of them stayed on and I told him to look at the side that I was stabbed and he checked it and then this group of people helped me. I had my hair cut and I was taking the public bus while the hunt for my friends continued. In the final part of the dream I was running down a street with closed shop and they figured that I survived and they started to call out everyone to come after me but no one could attack me violently. They threw soft colourful balls, hitting these balls with a golf stick while aiming them on me when I ran to the final bus (colourful) and I told them why are you attacking me when I've never done anything to you...then they stopped and let us board the final bus (colourful with a retro interior) without much fuss. I sat on the last seat panting and remembering how much my sides hurt...woke up panting

    1. Possibly a thought connected to your mind that will hurt yourself and others when you distance from important people in your life. You have partnered(collegues)with the idea. You have hidden that behing what you do that is good(plants who grow-allowing) you appear to be the one wounded but wound others more by the reactions to your actions. Hair cut-less wise because of your actions. Someone helped you identify what in your past has prompted you to act this way. You say you havnt done anything hurting others but they claim you have. You may have done things that hurt people that you didnt realize did hurt others. And you are wondering why others are making such a negative attitude toward you.

  15. I had a dream a few nights ago that I was carrying this beautiful knife. The handle was made of gorgeous wood with silver colored metal inlay. It seemed to me that this was more of a culinary knife, but not a butcher knife. I had a beautiful leather sheath that attached to my pants. This is where I carried it. I remember really being proud of this knife even though I had no idea why I had it. I then looked down to where it had been and it had been stolen from me. I immediately knew who had stolen it. It was stolen by my step son. I was distraught. I really wanted my knife back. I was trying to find my step son so I could get it back, but I couldn't find him. Somehow the police knew about it and wanted to go and haul him to jail. The police were evidently taking him into custody, but I couldn't see him. I am shouting from a distance, "I still love you Trevor"! The setting was not anywhere I was familiar with. The edges were out of focus and it seemed overcast or very dim. I would appreciate your interpretation of my dream. Thank you so much!

  16. i had a dream where i was in a house i dont know and we had been there for a holiday or lived there a while and were moving back to a city, i had to catch the train but i went through my drawers to find clothes and i found bottles of drugs, like i had opened a pharmacy, then i went out the front and was confronting my mum about something while everyone was waiting to get going in a car (even though i earlier we had all been on a train and that was where we were supposed to be going) and out of no where i just pulled a knife out and sliced my throat and i could feel the warmth of the blood stream down my throat and chest and it got very light and my mum tried to cover it up, no one was in hysterics or anything and i was smiling, i remember just feeling blissful, well with a bit of apprehension of where i was going, then i woke up. This dream felt so real, the feeling of the blood was very realistic, only thing was it didnt hurt at all. What does this mean? Was it a suicidal dream? The "Pharmacy" thing in my room that opened up i remember being happy and reaching for the bottles of xanax and Oxycontin/ Heavy pain killers and other benzos but i couldnt get them as my parents got in the way but i wasnt reacting to that too much, it was more the tension between my mum and me, then the knife came out. I dont usually remember dreams at all or this long but this has stuck with me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  20. Hello,
    I was walking at night, when a random guy came up to me and stabbed me in the neck with a dirty HIV needle. I was panicked, and randomly found a small sharp knife in my pocket and stabbed him in the stomach. My fear stopped, and I felt bad for him, because I didn't mean to hurt him. However; I knew if I didn't stab him, he would con't to stab me with that needle.

  22. Hi... Had a dream today morning... I wonder if you could analyze that!
    In the dream I am in some place where someone close to me or myself have had "someone" cut open my chest and left in a very bad shape. Later on after a series of events I find out the person responsible and plan to do the same to him. Find a young boy who either i know is close to that person or is related to him. He has some health issue, After talking I then take him to a beach... his friends also accompany me I have a knife and i tell him that I have a solution to his problem. He says go ahead and do what you have to do. I am not a bad person so I start having doubts and seeing the knife his friends dissuade him. But he says she know what she's doing and maybe it will solve the problem. I cut open his chest skin in middle.... he has very little pain... no bleeding. He doesn't cry and is looking at me like he's ok. Tells me go ahead... I cut open the muscles but then bleeding starts and I feel remorse that whatever happened to me doesn't have to be repeated.... I look at him - tell him to go and get it stitched. Gather my stuff so that I am not put in problem with law and simply go back to my house. after some odd incidents related to cleaning of house maids coming and going...I get to know the boy's father has come to my place. I go and speak to him... he is calm... tells me the boy is fine... just needed stitches and then asks me calmly why I did that? I was about to tell him my trauma and what had happened with me when due to some noise my dream got broken.
    Can you help me find out what this means... please!!!

  23. Whether you are having nightmares or completely incredible, idealistic dreams, we all want to understand them better. Dreams are so frequently studied because of their unimaginable and vast potential. Various scientists have sought to understand dreams and sleep patterns including Sigmund Freud. Here are options for dreams, dream moods, field of dreams, how to lucid dream, dream quotes and what do dreams mean.

    1. Instead of clicking on this link in the comment, or registering to use this generalised website, I would prefer my readers to visit my Facebook page, 'Tallulah La Ghash' and ask me directly, as I take a subjective approach to dream interpretation (more in-line with Freudian Dream Interpretation Techniques than this website which just gives basic interpretations based on universal symbolism) :) xx

  24. I had a dream about a knife fight, in a warehouse, against multiple opponets(one at a time), during the second fight the opponet was dual weilding knives:
    When i withdrew a second knife i actually own. What is the significance of "pulling" a knife from my waking world into my dreams?

  27. I had a dream that I was looking after a boy and we were at in a canteen waiting to get food when i first saw a man walking around with blood all over his face, he looked like he was in a trance state. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw a guy on his knees and someone was holding him in position and another guy had one hand holding his head in place and with the other hand he was stabbing him in the forehead. The guy being stabbed looked very calm, and there was no blood. All I could think about was running away and protecting the boy. When we ran outside no one else was there... It almost felt like I was the only one that had seen all of this. Then I woke up. I still can't get that image out of my head though.

  29. I dreamed a few years ago that my cousin got stabbed by his kid's mother and died. I had the thought about the same thing happening but this time i was just thinking it not dreaming and two days later it really happened exactly how i saw it in my thoughts and dreams. Rip to my cousin smh. Sometimes dreams are real.

  30. I was having a completely normal dream. Me and my brother were walking to my girlfriends house. We were in a big parking lot and all of a sudden I hear footsteps running at me and then I see my brother take off and this guy stabs me in the chest multiple times. He finally gets off to go after my brother but notices he's already to far ahead so he rubs back at me. At that point I wake up yelling.

  31. Hi! I dreamt of being in a forest and being in an argument with someone. I dont remember who it was. Suddenly we both had knives and we started attacking eachother. We both stabbed eachother at the same time. I was stabbed in the left wrist, just below the hand. My attacker was stabbed in the chest, diagonally, therefore he wasnt as hurt.
    We both realized we needed to get help. I ran of to a very close end of the forest, where some men were working on something, next to a road.
    I told them i got stabbed and they told me to wait for the ambulance.
    The next thing i remember being in a small forest house on a tree, with my parents. I remember realizing it was a few days after the incident. My wound has somewhat healed, but not completely. I remembered that i left the knife that was stabbed into my wrist on a small slope that led to that building site. I quickly told my parents that it's something very important while running of to get it.
    It was still there, on a white plastic protection cloth, on the slope. I remember getting it, then waking up.

  33. I had a bizarre dream. I had a sword or knife and stuck it down my throat into my body. Then I was fine. then I started feeling pain and went into surgery and I could see myself having surgery. I was very upset during this dream. It makes no sense to me. Why would I stick a sword/knife down my throat? And I woke up before I knew if I even lived or died.

  35. Hi there,
    I am a woman. I had a dream that I stopped for a hitchhiker and she sat in the back seat of my car before I had a chance to tell her to get in the front. She stabbed my seat with a large butcher knife, but I was able to avoid it. I woke up while I was trying to decide whether I should pretend she killed me and wait for her to come around and open the door, or to open the door myself and confront her.
    I do have a relationship with a man that needs to be ended. He is mentally ill and it has been two years of stormy ups and downs that have left me drained. Who would this woman be? I recently met someone with a very scary energy...

  41. hi. i had a dream that i was in an un-familiar place but in my dream i knew it was school. all the people that i knew where there. everyone was outside together. they all watched me as i walked to my car. a girl pushed me over and began calling me bad names. i stood up as she began to approach her own car. i said that it was not right for her to do that to me. a boy (about my age, whose face i couldnt identify) started yelling at me saying i was being mean to his sister. he then drew a knife and proceeded to chase me around the school for hours. he would stab me in my arms and legs. none of the cuts hurt and werent bleeding. i went back to school the next day and everyone wanted to see my cuts. at the end of the dream, he professed his love for me. when i woke up from my dream, i have marks all over my arms and legs that matched the places i was stabbbed in my dream. what does this dream mean? also i always have dreams of being bitten by a white snake but not dying or feeling pain. what do these dreams mean? im never scarred in them. ever. im very confused

  42. Had a dream I was pierced in side with a spear. Very real the pain in the dream was horrendous. Woke up terrified. Wasn't hurting when I got my bearings. Three days later I was in hospital with kidney stones, and you can guess which side. Thought it was cool that I had a dream warning me what was coming.

  43. Hi Maybe some of you might be able to assist as I cannot find clear information on some aspects of this dream.

    The dreamer dreams that he is sitting in a pub. The dreamer cant remember the full dream but a gentleman starts getting aggressive with him. (No knowledge of who the gentleman is in real life, so no connection to the gentleman in real life.) Soon the aggression leads to violence as the gentleman starts ranting more aggressively verbally and coming aggressively towards the dreamer. the dreamer not being violent or confrontational backs up the whole time but soon the gentleman picks up a bottle and comes very aggressively towards the dreamer. The gentleman attempts to break the bottle to use it as a weapon. At first he struggles to break the bottle but then he eventually breaks it and starts running aggressively towards the dreamer to stab him. The next moment the dreamer grabs a bottle, breaks the bottle and go to stab the gentleman out of self defense. The dreamer grabs a piece of stick and hammer the broken bottle into the left eye of the gentleman. (Almost as if you are hammering a nail with a hammer.) Dreamer explains this happened so quickly that the one moment he is trying to get away the next he just watched his hands hammering a broken glass bottle into this mans eye. The next moment the dreamer walks out of the pub and is going on with life as if nothing happens, walking through a park towards a local market. a while later he spots a few gentlemen running madly up and down looking for someone in the crowd in the market. Suddenly a fear overcome the dreamer. The dreamer is at this time with someone which he doesnt know in real life, they unintentionally go to sit down under a tree in the park, not to hide or anything, and the fear leaves the dreamer as he relaxes. A while later in the dream the dreamer and the man he is with gets up to leave and as they walk off the dreamer feel that he needs to turn around. as he turns around an object comes flying towards his head, he ducks and narrowly escapes the object flying past his head. He relaised then that the gentleman who threw the object was the one man that he spotted that was running around earlier looking for someone. The dreamer first ignores this and then the gentleman starts running towards him aggressively. The dreamer back off slowly and then realized that he is being surrounded by a lot of men who are extremely angry and aggressive. The men then flag a police car off the side of the park and scream this is him, this is him. The dreamer then in his mind in the dream thinked..: hang on a second... why did I not approach the police? Why did I not go to the police immediately, I did what I did out of self defence now it is looking like I did a act and ran away.. this is out of character for me, I would normally immediately called the police and at least wait for the police to arrive at the incident. then the dreamer woke up.

    Having said this, This dreamer also a few days ago dreamed that he was under attack by someone, and the dreamer only remembers that he kept trying to get away, saying to the attackers the whole time: "please please I dont want to fight you I dont want to hurt you.. please please dont ..

    If anyone can assist I would be grateful.

  45. I had a nightmare saturday night it started as a buffet line at a restaurant i did not recognize and then it moved to a different room and my boyfriend was on a char and someone that looked like a kid threw my dog at me and she wimpered and my boyfriend was "forced" to stab himself but he was in a trance. He stabbed his right arm and right knee and the middle of his chest then his eye. In the nightmare i felt as if i was not there, but just watching. I woke up and i cried because it felt so real. What could this mean?

  47. Sensitive topic warning.
    I dreamt I punched and stabbed every guy that passed me then I literally threw them aross the mountain top. I came home and shot myself. But I survived and kept trying to shoot myself. After the 5th shot I ended up in the hospital seeing my girlfriend wearing black winter clothes, crying holding a paper signing something.
    What does this mean. Could this be because some sick man poisoned and forced himself in me at work. Basicly the worst any human being can do. His E.M.T. Badge should be taken away. Then my girlfriend found my bloody boxers in the trash saying I passed out in the shower and a bag full of 'the peacefull pill' when i came home from work. I felt her try helping me up, I freaked out and am uncomfortable. She is worried but it will crush her if she finds out i was poisoned and raped. I just can't deal with it and want to end it all. These types of dreams have been haunting me. I dont want to go in public telling doctors or face group meeting. That will just take my masculinity away. Advise soon would be good because I work 24/48 hour ahift as a paramedic.
