She came home and was beaten up by this group of girls, so I went and found them, I beat them all until they collapsed and stopped breathing and then I needed to get out of this place. When I got outside she wasn’t there, I waited for ages outside this house, then the group of girls I beat up came out and told me she as still inside, and eventually she walked out. We then had to go through this tunnel full of water, there were snakes and one of them bit through my thumb, and then a dog came and bit me multiple times whilst I tried to jump over this fence. Then I woke up. Please help me explain this.

  5. i had this dream, where im much older than i am now. I go to my garage to leave my house and i see this guy who i was in love with years ago, on my garage floor with a knife in hus neck. i dropped to my knees and and start crying asking random questions like; “how’d you get here?!, who did this to you?!” and he opened his mouth and blood just went everywhere. I dragged him to my back seat and raced to the nearest hospital by my house. I ran inside and got a nurse who brough more people ans a stretcher out. Im holding his hand while they rush him to the surgery room and asking me questions that i dont have the answers to. As i sit in the waiting room covered in his blood, praying that he makes it. The doctor finally comes out and asks me my relation with him. I broke down and told him i haven’t seen him in years since we broke it off due to his ex. I asked if he was alive and he said he made it and the person who stuck the knife in his neck knew what they were doing. They did not want him to die they wanted him to feel pain. I was able to get into his room and talk to him, but when i asked him what happened and who did this..he looked terrified to tell me. I woke up in tears and sweat. I love this man i dont want anything to happen to him

  6. I had a dream that we was in a car and it was me my boyfriend and his bestfriend. I am also really good mates with his bestfriend. 3 people came up the car opens my boyfriends door and whispered I’m his ear and kinda dragged him out In a forceful way. They then went to kians door ( the bestfriend) and pulled him out and started attacking him and kicking him on the floor and seriously beating him up. This dream has actually made me feel scarred of walking alone in the streets now that I know this has happened in my dream. If you could explain the meaning his would be great many thanks x

  7. I had a dream that a little girl on tv was (warning this is disgusting and I wish I have never seen it) put her hands in a meat grinder and cut her fingers off then her all the way up past her wrist. It was so that she could go to sea world and they would feel bad for her and she could go for free? Most confusing dream ever. I even had to wake up for a minute and pray for it to go away. I cannot stop thinking about it. What does that mean?!

  8. In my dream I was taking a shower and my close friend barges in and tries to cut/kill me with a razor or knife (forgot which) and I successfully fight her off and pin her down and she’s like shaking and trying to bite me. I don’t remember if she actually hurt me or not but she was acting crazy and screaming out to my mom(?) that she was going to end me and that she would become her new daughter. Idk but it was pretty creepy

  9. I had a dream the other night that I was with my former boyfriend and there was a group of people around us that he knew. We had to climb up a ladder to get out of a tiny space that had concrete as the floor and felt like the room itself was very cilinder like. Anyway, I climbed halfway up the iron ladder and I was attempting to coax my boyfriend up it aswell. He lost his grip and where the group of people were, the spread out and watched him fall! He fell head first onto the concrete. I jumped off the ladder and quickly came to his aid. His eyes were rolling to the back of his head and appeared to be losing consciousness. I got him home and he had fallen asleep. He woke up later and seemed to be behaving differently. I dont remember much after that since I had woken up in real life after he did in the dream.

  10. I had a dream last night that some man was almost stabbing into my leg and I was in agony and woke up clutching my leg… I could feel the pain so vividly and real… Was still in pain for about 30 second when I woke up before I went away… What could that mean?

    • If you felt physical pain when you woke up that could have been a muscle cramp, they don’t always last very long but they are very painful. If that was a muscle cramp it could mean that you are either lacking magnesium or you are dehydrated. Hope this helped 🙂

    • Maybe you just feel worried about his future and what might happen if you are not there to protect him which is hurting you emotionally projected through him because it would hurt you more if he got injured or killed
      than yourself

  15. I had two dreams the first was a jackhammer falling on my husband and nearly killing him. the second was I went inside my house and I had to very friendly white and orange cats but the white one wasn’t really mine but she looked worn down nappy hair dirty but the orange one full of health any explanations please help too many other dreams but no explanation.

  16. I had this dream about two times. I’m in my room and there was this guy that called me asking to meet him somewhere. I denied it. Then he called to ask for a pic. I denied it again. Next thing I know, he’s in my room with about 3 other people. They look a little older than me. It becomes this whole segment where they have knives and they cut me, but get ahold of sharp objects and cut them too. It goes on like this for a while. They try to defend themselves in the room next to mine. As this happens, I’m getting cuts on my arm, back, wrists. After I thought it was over, I’m in the next room trying to cover myself when I see the guy sitting down on my chair. The other 3 people are standing up. He says that it was done and over. Believe it or not, one of the people stab me in my chest with a nail. I remember laying down in my living room. Since I knew I wasn’t fully dead, I picked myself back up and was glad the person missed. I run upstairs and look through the kitchen cabinets for knives and found a sharp scissors and a small razor knife. I hear my aunt asking me what happened and what I’m doing. I told her I was stabbed and that if they were still there, I would finish them off. My aunt tells me that she called my parents saying I was stabbed in the shoulder and chest. Immediately, I run downstairs and see my mom going through my phone but I tell her there’s no evidence there and only on my ps3 . We go to check the system and was glad it was still there and that’s where I actually woke up.

  17. I had a dream where my right shoulder had about 5 holes, I could see through them and instead of seeing blood I would see lots of nasty string. What could this mean?

  18. I had a dream last night about me going through a column of rooms in an apartment or hotel. Each room was very beautiful in its own unique ways, but each room had little to almost no light even from the sun. The house felt familiar but I felt unsafe about being there and felt like I was being watched and chased. My little sister is a very playful,energetic girl I am the opposite of this composed,calm,quiet and I dreamed she was trying to playfight with me. I ended up getting angry because of something she did or said and I choked her which I felt extremely horrible and guilty about after I had done it. I did it to the point where she was unconscious. I decided to run away ashamed and as if nothing had happened she hugged me and said its okay I forgive you. Then my dream ended please help solve this very uneasy dream for me. Thank You. Shane

    • Maybe you don’t like/get anoyed with your sister consciously but deep down no matter how much you may
      hurt each other you will always love her if only subconsciously

  19. I had a dream I was cutting someone’s hair on a computer but was holding a axe with no handle. Every time I cut the hair people in the room said it looked fantastic , but each time I cut I struggled to hold the chopper and it cut my face legs chest, some wounds healed some were fresh, I wasn’t panicked, then a paramedic appeared, I woke up, please solve this weird dream for me, many thanks Maria xxx

    • Maybe you feel preussured to do something that other people see as good that is hurting you mentally or emotionally
      and sense some wounds are still fresh it was effecting you the day of the dream
