Because Defense is something that you do all the time, this means that there are many reasons why you might dream of defense or a situation in which you might defend yourself.
A lot of the times a person can be subtly attacked in their lives and possibly not even notice it. These types of attacks are attacks on the integrity and the humanity of the person that is being spoken to. If you have a dream in which you see a person trying to defend themselves or in which you see yourself trying to defend yourself it means that lately you have been feeling attacked in real life. There are some issues with the way that you feel about your own integrity. You could feel as if you had been personally attacked like someone has insulted you directly or they have treated you badly when you didn’t deserve it. If this is the case then it means that you need to calm down a bit and relax. Put up your defenses but don’t feel so attacked or else you will always feel a bit inferior. If you have a dream in which someone else is trying to defend themselves from you it means that you have not been so nice recently and you feel pretty guilty for what you’ve done lately.
If you have a dream about defense or where you are trying to put up a defense it might be because you feel like you are a bit vulnerable. This is usually the reason that people feel inclined to defend themselves because not only do you feel attacked but you also feel like you do not have the ability to defend yourself like you might like to. Something has happened or someone has told you something which made you feel weak or called your strength into question and you felt inadequate.
To dream that others are trying to defend themselves from you, aside from what has already been mentioned above, this can also mean that you have been more aggressive than usual lately which can be a good or bad thing, or even just a neutral one depending on how purposefully that aggression was employed and the intention behind it. If you are going into this trying to hurt someone’s feelings and make them feel terrible then obviously you do not have the best intent in mind and this can lead to complications which may happen for you later on in life. Sometimes being aggressive is a good thing and can get you recognition from your superiors. This is also a good way of being assertive. Go aggressively towards your goals to make sure that you achieve them, don’t let them simply fly past you and don’t forget how hard you worked for them or this is one sure way to put yourself on a path towards loss. This is where being aggressive can be a negative thing. Don’t let this happen to you. Make sure to go for the goal and fight for what you believe in. Otherwise you will continue to plummet earthward.
