To see someone being beheaded still strikes fear today as it once did, arguably even more than it used to. To witness that in your sleep would suggest that for some reason you have been fixated on the idea of something violent happening to you. This is not good, and is something that you should really keep a watch on before something really negative comes of it. Don’t spend too much time fearing for your life, or you might run the risk of becoming too afraid to venture outdoors or do anything fun and risky.
If you dream that you are the one being beheaded, then this could be because you feel incredibly guilty about something. Beheading is a brutal tactic that was traditionally employed only to punish the guiltiest of people in the most terrible way for the horrible crimes that they committed. If you think that you are guilty of an awful crime or something like that, then this might be one reason that you are dreaming of being beheaded, because you think that beheading would be a just punishment for whatever it is that you have done.
If you have a dream in which you are beheaded then another reason that this might occur is because you feel as though you are losing your wits and mental faculties. As we all know the brain is one of the most important organs in our bodies, controlling the way that we respond to all kinds of stimuli, and it also stores information for us too. To be beheaded means the loss of the brain along with a loss of everything that the brain stored within it, a total loss of information and faculties. This could be because you have been made to feel stupid by someone else around you. Don’t let that get you down, we can’t all be geniuses.
This could also represent a loss of direction though too. This would be especially prevalent if you have just moved to a new location or if you have put yourself in a totally new environment where you are unfamiliar with what is going on. You do not know what you are doing and you need to be able to gather some of your bearings. Take some time to try and figure things out. And make sure to go one at a time. If you try to wrap your head around too many things at once, you will get confused and become irritable and angry, which will only serve to further impede progress. Do not let yourself fall into this trap. Instead make responsible decisions and know that every step forward you take is important even if you can’t understand everything that is going on all at once.
