Dream interpretation Murder and Killing

When you read about something distressing in the news, or someone makes you angry, it may well go through your mind that you would like to commit murder. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that dream murders and killing reflect deep and powerful emotions and issues. While these dreams may be disturbing, you may also find that they can be some of the most valuable keys for tapping into areas of your internal landscape that you may not have had much success accessing before.

General Dream Meaning: Murder and Killing

No matter whether you dream of murdering someone or being killed, the person dying may represent some aspect of yourself. If you know the person in question, you may also be symbolically killing a trait that you have in common. In some cases, a dream of killing or being murdered can also indicate some kind of closure or ending. Unfortunately, in most cases, you may be conflicted about that ending, or feel angry towards those who are causing it to happen.

How Dream Symbol Murder and Killing May Fit in Your Life

It can be said that the most graphic dreams are your mind's way of doing everything possible to get your attention. While you may believe that you are always open to your own thoughts and feelings, this dream is a clear indicator that you need to start listening to your internal signals. At the very least, if someone that you know is involved in the dream, paying attention to your stress elves, tone of voice, and other factors during interactions can help you decipher what is going on. From there, you may find it much easier to make changes in the relationship, as well as how you view it.

A Sample Dream, Murder Dream Interpretation

Consider a situation where you dream of a friend that is also associated with your romantic partner. In the dream, it may be a cloudy day, and you are not feeling very happy to begin with. As the dream progresses, you get into your car and begin driving across a parking lot. You see your friend, and suddenly become overwhelmed by rage. Even though you don't know why, the name of your romantic partner flashes across your mind. Once you are close enough to your friend, you suddenly slam on the gas and run them over. Once you get out of the car and find out they are dead, you seem to feel much better.

In this dream, the cloudy day is indicative that problems will occur in a relationship. Since the person being killed is someone that your significant other associates with, you may want to interpret this dream as one about your love life. Even though a parking lot is a place of rest, in this dream it suddenly becomes the location where a violent crime is committed. In that respect, you may want to interpret it as symbolizing your romantic relationship.

From here, you can interpret the dream in one of two ways. First, you can acknowledge that there may be feelings between your significant other and your friend. Killing that person in the dream may be your mind's way of establishing your territory, as well as cementing the idea that your relationship is sound. On the other hand, killing the other person may mean that you secretly suspect there is an illicit relationship going on, and you are feeling jealous and afraid. Either way, the calmness that you feel at the end of the dream indicates that you have combated the distress within yourself.

I had a nightmare or night terror or whatever you call it. I have had several but 3 of them in general stand out more than any others. One of of them I have been having since I was a kid Iím 16 now but itís been reoccurring randomly. It always starts off with me and my mom going outside to do something late at night and then she walks off (still in seeing distance) and starts doing something and then WOLVES show up and sometimes they corner my mom too but most of the time they corner me and start attacking me and then I guess I died or something because then I just wake up from my sleep. Another one is also about me and my mom. I keep having a reoccurring nightmare or night terror about watching my mom get in car accidents and dying later on in a hospital. And lastly this one scars me the most because itís very graphic and gruesome itís about me and my best friend who go to college together. It starts off with us getting dressed to go somewhere. It then escalated to me pulling into a driveway in a neighborhood with a for sale sign on the property. So then me and my best friend go aaround back to look at the garage when all of a sudden I get dizzy and my vision goes crazy and I barely see my best friend and I being dragged down the driveway to the back of a vehicle and being thrown in hitting my head where I then black out and I regain consciousness and we are inside a dark room and I see my best friend tied up a cross the room crying and Then this guy comes into the room with a mask on. And he pulls out a bunch of knifes and sharp objects and makes eye contact with me and starts slowly cutting chunks of my friends skin off. He keeps doing this until she stops moving (weakness from blood loss) and my best friend looks at me and says I love you and he starts cutting her again and then he starts sawing limbs off limb by limb each time making eye contact and then starts walking towards me and it goes black and I wake up. I donít know what any of these dreams mean I love my mother. My best friend and I have been best friends since 4th grade and we are juniors in highschool now and we have NEVER gotten into a fight. We have silly little goofy arguments but nothing more. The wolves dream makes me really paranoid for the rest of the day once I have woken from it to the point my friends literally think Iím on something. But lately I have been having these dreams reoccurring pretty often and itís starting to get more and more realistic feeling and looking and more graphic. Please help me.

My boyfriend had had two dreams in the last two weeks of me being hurt or killed. The first one i actually heard him in his sleep calling out my name and then when he woke up he kept asking if i was okay cus someone in the dream was trying to hurt me. Then a few minutes ago he woke up from another nightmare and told me that there was blood everywhere, that i was bleeding everywhere. Itís terrifying me and itís 4am and i just keep googling meanings for this. I think Iíve found some answers that i donít want to accept.

I had a dream last night in which I was hanging out with friends and we knew that two guys would come and try to kill us. When they arrived, I threw one of them out of the window, looked down and saw that he was lying dead in a bloody pool. When I noticed how easy it was, i did the same to the other intruder. I remember all of the people in the room being really shocked by the happening, including myself. Eventually they came back to life and I was away, running for the consequences. I am very confused by this dream, as it was cold-blooded and scary. Could anyone please help me interpret it? I did not know any of the guys, but there was some sense that they knew something they were not supposed to know.

I went to bed with my bf and had a dream that was very vivid and scary. I dreamed I was trying to smother him with a pillow, I have no idea why. And it was like I was watching the dream almost like there were two of me, and one was watching from outside of my body or something. And I wasn't upset or angry at him. And in my dream it didn't phase me at all. I had no feeling towards it.

I dreamt my husband and I took our two daughters to a Christmas party at a friend's house. They were wearing these little red dresses that we actually have. After being there for a little while I started looking for my youngest who was about 3 years old at the time just to check on her. I saw her being dragged downstairs and into a room by someone dressed as Santa Claus. The door was locked when I tried to open it and I could hear her screaming and crying as he was murdering her. It was horrible. I could hear her dying and couldn't get to her. I was pounding on the soor, screaming and trying to break it down. I woke up in tears. Ive not taken them to see Santa since. This dream was about 9 years ago. I still cry when I think about it. This is one of many dreams I've had where one of my kids either gets hurt or dies, but this was the worst by far. Usually it's getting into an accident or something. Also of my 6 kids she is the one I see hurt or killed most often. I put her in karate when she was 6 and now
9 years after this dream she's 12 and a black belt in 3 forms of karate.

i'm not okay... 2017-10-14 14:00:18
ok so in my dream, there was a group of saad looking kids in like a small gated area and one was given a cross bow and he had to shoot one of the other kids and he shot this little black girl in the group, and she was crying and 2 arrows in he shoulder already, she was crying more as the 3rd on came, and then she was out of the cage, her ribs were a;; visible, and out of nowhere knifes were thrown at her, like kitchen knives, then butcher knives, all hitting her, until her body was not even recognizable, she didn't fall until she was no longer recognizable, and then there was a cgi air conditioner looking creature floating around to people and he said something about how we'll be seeing his face on a clock every time, and then his face got close to a screen which turned out to be a tv screen I think? and I was freaking out, saying "why?! why would you do that to a child??" (I was also wondering why was this was happening to one of the only 2 black kids in the group) and a girl next to me paused the tv and I flipped off the tv with the cgi looking creature's face, and she wasn't bothered at all by what we saw, while I was still totally freaking out, and we decided to go to bed, I was still trying, and failing miserably, to calm down. then I woke up, and cried for like 10 minutes before coming on here. I feel like I need mental help, why would I dream such a thing? I'm not okay with this... the image of the little girl's dead body is still in my head, why, just WHY? is there an actual meaning to any this shit? am I mentally disturbed? is this awful ass dream saying I need a damn therapist? I feel so dumb asking that...

I had a dream that I was murdered once by my 'bf' (I dont have a bf in real life) and this girl told me to go with him and then kill him. I just decided to escape and I fell in love with my parallel self (weird). My parallel self was dating a purple haired girl but broke up with her on good terms. Me, parallel self, and the girl decided to steal some magical transfprming bowl thing but in the middle of it we were stopped by 'heros' and there were also dogs that were helping us. I ended up getting arrested but I didnt go to jail and I just kept asking prisoners questions.

I had a dream that I was in the living room and heard people laughing that they were going to do some killing tonight and then I remember in my dream trying to lock the door but being unsuccessful then hearing laughing meaning the people got inside the house. In my dream I ran into my brothers bedroom and opening the window and jumping out. Then running and grabbing my phone and calling my grandparents who live down the street. The next thing I hear are gunshots and a light turning on in each room or my house. I then remember crying in my dream because my brother and parents were sleeping in their rooms when the gunshots occurred. I ran over to my grandparents house and told them to call 911. Then I woke up from my dream and got out of my bed and lcoked the door to our house. I am scared because it felt so real. Like in my dream everything was so realistic.

I had been studying all day for a final exam I had the next day.
I fell into a nap and had a very vivid dream of people getting killed and how it was getting closer to where I was with my family outside. I noticed we just stood there, no screaming or running away. Two men walked out of the house that we last heard gunshots and were a stone's throw way from.
They apparently were looking for someone, me.
They asked me and my mother and aunt our names. I told them my name while my family members trembled in fear. They shook their heads vigorously, motioning to me that I should stop.

It was too late. The men grabbed me and I had an "aha" moment. There was a nearby river, however, it was muddy. I told them I needed to pee. They allowed me to pee and when their backs were turned after asking for privacy I dived and begun swimming as fast as I could through the waters that seemed to be against me. The last thing I heard was my mother screaming "run!" and the men arguing about my escape.

As I travelled downstream I thought about my family and why these men wanted to kill me. I was just eighteen and was in mourning. I and my family members were coming from a reading of my grandmother's will. Then it dawned on me that I had inherited land and a substantial amount of wealth from my late grandmother. They wanted the money and it was in my name. How would they know this? Was it an inside job?

I saw my grandmother's home in the distance. I found my way out of the river. I went up to large estate looking home. I couldn't enter so I climbed up the building to the second floor using a column placed for the olden day's estate aesthetic of the home. Upon reaching the balcony of the second floor. I heard two familiar voices.The two men. I heard them enter the house and realised they were slowly making their way to where I was. My heart was like the hooves of a racehorse. I tried the door to the bedroom and slowly went in. I saw a small silver handgun on the nightstand.Their voices had gotten louder. I grabbed the gun and went into the bathroom to hide, I hid behind the door with my hand covering my mouth. I heard them enter and I knew I was dead.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I heard the bathroom door open and one of the men enter.
I charged at him using my hand to cover his face and push him out of the room. He was thrown off balance and fell and begun shooting aimlessly. I shot him and his partner who was taken by surprise to see me holding a gun and his partner dead on the floor. His stunned reaction gave my bullet enough time. I ran out as fast as I could.

I woke up with my heart racing and with heavy breathing. I breathed a sigh of relief, it was just a dream.
Were these two men symbolic of my exam which I had the next day? Will I come out victorious?
