What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?
I canīt remember the last time I had a good dream....itīs been so long. They are all disturbing now.


Last night I was shook out of my sleep at around 4am. I had a dream that my daughter and I were being chased by a gun toting crazy man. It started in a place that I didnīt recognize but I apparently lived. My daughter and I were at home and this guy busts through the door and just started shooting. I just fell to the floor with my daughter and acted like I was hit and dead so the guy would leave. When he did I ran holding my daughter and we ran right by him. I kept running until I was blocks away and I was knocking on doors and everything trying to get to a phone. We finally got to a house and this guy let us in. I went to use the phone and it was dead. All of a sudden the guy with the gun comes through the door and starts shooting again. That is where I woke up.


I canīt imagine what could be starting these dreams....I just wish I knew. The only thing different this time is that I didnīt wake up crying heavily like I normally do.

"What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?"

I could go into detail about anxiety and visual stimulation of violent images...but you probably know all that...

But it happens to me a lot in dreams...either shoot back or duck...or if you realize its a dream the bullets cant kill you...itīs a dream go bitchslap the shooter with a tractor trailer...good therapy...

Re: What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?
OAW -

Donīt be upset. When dreams recur like this it just means we didnīt get them the first time. Your subconscious/unconscious is just trying to get its message across to your conscious mind. Itīs language is symbolism. You seem to have gotten that much anyway since youīre asking what being shot means.

Being shot in a dream means someone using "male" force. A gun is a phallic symbol. It most often represents someone "saying" things to you that pack a powerful punch. The symbolism of your daughter "being killed" should make it easy to identify. Who the hell has been saying things to your daughter that just "kill" her inside? Letīs see the whole dream is this:

RE: "I had a dream that my daughter and I were being chased by a gun toting crazy man. It started in a place that I didnīt recognize but I apparently lived. My daughter and I were at home and this guy busts through the door and just started shooting. I just fell to the floor with my daughter and acted like I was hit and dead so the guy would leave. When he did I ran holding my daughter and we ran right by him. I kept running until I was blocks away and I was knocking on doors and everything trying to get to a phone. We finally got to a house and this guy let us in. I went to use the phone and it was dead. All of a sudden the guy with the gun comes through the door and starts shooting again. That is where I woke up."

Now you and your daughter are at home. Home means self. So this guy is affecting you at a very personal level. In other words, if you just had a run in with someone at work and left it there, the dream would take place there. But this, you bring home with you. Or this guy is PART of the household (was a part?) Someone you welcomed in? Itīs possible since he knows both you and your daughter. But the house is interesting because you say you donīt recognize it. This could mean that you donīt recognize this side of self. That would make sense since youīre not understanding this dream. Now this could mean a few things. Either this man brings out fear in you that youīre not used to feeling. Or you arenīt used to being treated like this and therefore donīt recognize it. Notice how you "pretend" with this guy. So is there someone you "act" with? By that I mean pretending to be a certain way to GET your way? Or to get him to leave you alone? This would also mean that your daughter is getting the brunt of this. In other words, your subconscious mind (probably your very maternal side) knows full well the damage this guy and his remarks are doing to your daughter.

You leave the house with your daughter after pretending to be dead. Did this actually happen? Did you play dead and then run from someone? Notice you run "blocks." This would be saying trying to overcome obstacles. You knock on doors until you find another "guy." Did you do this also? Find another "guy" to protect you from the first one? Or is this about finding that "guy" within you? Trying to get access to that male part of yourself that would adequately be able to deal with this situation. The phones represent communication. You were unable to communicate what was going on. And again you keep saying "dead." Everything is "dead." So does this signify how you felt about the relationship? Was this guy not willing to accept that your feelings toward him were "dead" and not subject to being revived? The fact that this guy follows you no matter what you do and starts shooting at you again, means this guy is not taking no for an answer. No matter what you say or where you go, heīs there just making his remarks.

Thatīs the parameter of what the dream means. You need to start packing some ammo in your dream and fire back. But the dream indicates youīre attempting to do that. You just donīt know how. And pretending everything is all right is obviously not working. Thatīs why youīre going from one door to another in an attempt to find a solution. A door that you can go through where you donīt have to see or deal with this anymore.

Shot
To dream that you are shot, and are feeling the sensations of dying, denotes that you are to meet unexpected abuse from the ill feelings of friends, but if you escape death by waking, you will be fully reconciled with them later on.

To dream that a preacher shoots you, signifies that you will be annoyed by some friend advancing views condemnatory to those entertained by yourself.

Pistol
Seeing a pistol in your dream, denotes bad fortune, generally.

If you own one, you will cultivate a low, designing character.

If you hear the report of one, you will be made aware of some scheme to ruin your interests.

To dream of shooting off your pistol, signifies that you will bear some innocent person envy, and you will go far to revenge the imagined wrong.

AC 12:05, my daughter wasnīt killed in the dream. Neither one of us were. And I donīt think it has anything to do with things being said or acting a certain way. I donīt even think it has anyhting to do with a man. I could be wrong though. This isnīt even a recurring dreamn, I have only had this one once. I just mean that all the dreams that I can remember lately are bad and cause me to be in shock when I wake up.

Re: What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?
I was going to make a one-liner answer, but Iīll refrain. ;-)

I never gave too much weight to the symbolism of dreams. Sure, there are some symbolic things in there, but usually itīs just a movie in your head that your brain plays for entertainment while you sleep. So we should always question whether or not they truly have a meaning. In your case, although it sure sounds like a scary dream, itīs probably just your fear of losing your daughter, and your own life, coming through in a dream. Thatīs the scariest thing anyone can think of, losing a child. I dream that all the time. Doesnīt mean itīs going to happen. It just makes me more cautious.

Why you have these disturbing dreams all the time is another question. Without knowing your personal life, itīs impossible to say what could be triggering them. Did something happen to you or your kids, or someone you know, that coincides with the onset of these dreams?

Sorry, me and my reply were dumped of GLP again.

I see these type of dreams in people who are getting into a second or third mattiage or relationship after a failed one.

Its not the commitment, its the subconscience fear that the relationship will fail.

I have been noticing that you are not as Bubbley as you have been in the past and was wondering if you were feeling the "weight" of things.

Re: What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?
OAW -

You know, I really donīt know why I even bother interpreting these dreams. Even when I hit things on the head, it just goes zip and zoom right over the head. Perhaps you donīt want to see things? Or you just like to pretend. Some people never get enough of game playing.

In terms of what you said:

Number one: That the dreams are NOT recurring and that you had it only once.

Well, then why did you say this:

"I canīt imagine what could be starting these dreams....I just wish I knew. The only thing different this time is that I didnīt wake up crying heavily like I normally do."

Okay, so why did you say you canīt imagine why youīre having these "dreams" and that this time you didnīt wake up crying? Hello? Anybody there?

Next as to you and your daughter being killed. You say this:

My daughter and I were at home and this guy busts through the door and just started shooting. I just fell to the floor with my daughter and acted like I was hit and dead so the guy would leave."

You say you were PRETENDING TO BE DEAD. Hello? Anybody there?

Next in my interpretation I say (AND I should add I donīt know you) that:

"You knock on doors until you find another "guy." Did you do this also? Find another "guy" to protect you from the first one? "

And it seems thatīs exactly what youīre doing. Someone asked about the FUTURE Mr. OAW and it seems there is a FUTURE Mr. OAW.

So you need to go back and think about the relationship you had BEFORE you had this one and that would be it. Was the previous relationship one where there was verbal abuse of this type? A temper or someone "bursting" in on you in terms of controlling you.

You donīt need to answer me because I doubt youīre serious at getting to the heart of this dream. Another day playing games on GLP. Otherwise you wouldnīt have lied and misstated things in your original post.

Obviously youīve had dreams of this type before or you wouldnīt have said so.

Remember?

"I canīt remember the last time I had a good dream....itīs been so long. They are all disturbing now."

Get it straight and stop pretending. Thatīs what youīre doing here.

Iīm soooo outta here!

Re: What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?
Dreams have a way of being driven by both our stresses and our underlying fears.

To survive, we suppress a good deal of our fear. This is basic. We couldnīt survive if we didnīt.

The brain, being a very well designed system, finds ways to release these fears. As you sleep your conscious systems are shut down and the mind is free to explore and expose the things we do not want to "think about" when we are awake and attempting to be rational problem solvers.

Re: What does it mean when you get shot at in a dream?
Ok, Anonymer. I was on the phone and couldnīt really read your whole post but now I am a little adgitated by it.

There is no way you could interpret me having a recurring dream by statement.

When I said this statement here:

I canīt remember the last time I had a good dream....itīs been so long. They are all disturbing now.


It was tying in with this one:

I canīt imagine what could be starting these dreams....I just wish I knew. The only thing different this time is that I didnīt wake up crying heavily like I normally do.

SO before you go and assume something you should ask first. Nowhere did I say it was recurring. I have had ALOT of bad dreams lately and that is what these statements meant.

Now, when I said this:

My daughter and I were at home and this guy busts through the door and just started shooting. I just fell to the floor with my daughter and acted like I was hit and dead so the guy would leave."

Nowhere did I say that my daughter was killed. So yes I guess you could say that I was pretending to be dead. No harm in that correct? It is my dream right?


Anonymer said,
"So you need to go back and think about the relationship you had BEFORE you had this one and that would be it. Was the previous relationship one where there was verbal abuse of this type? A temper or someone "bursting" in on you in terms of controlling you."


I think this has nothing to do with someone controlling me. As I stated that in a previous post to an AC. But ok, this is your interpretation so I will look at it as such.

"You donīt need to answer me because I doubt youīre serious at getting to the heart of this dream. Another day playing games on GLP. Otherwise you wouldnīt have lied and misstated things in your original post."


I asked a question and I got some answers, I wanted to know what others thought about it. Let me tell you something Anonymer. I may play with other avīs on threads that were meant for such, but when I post a thread that is even remotely serious I donīt do so to play games. I donīt appreciate or need you coming and telling me that I am a liar because you donīt understand something.

Hi,
So it's 8 years later approx, if that dream did mean anything now is a great time to get a good sample.

What's happening OAW? Are you still with the same guy? Are you resting easier now? Is your daughter safe?
