Interpreting dreams is sometimes fun. But what if your dream shows you as a criminal, killing someone? Such dreams are definitely scary and strange at the same time. So, what does dreaming about murdering someone, or dreams about murder mean? PsycholoGenie brings to you an interesting compilation of what these could mean.
On an average, a person forgets about 50% of his dream within 5 minutes of waking up, and within 10 minutes, he forgets about 90% of the dream.
It is true that dreams have no control or limit. They can be as soothing, like resting under clear sky, or as deadly as war and bloodshed. A general assumption with people is that a dream is something that you desire for or want from life; perhaps, you were thinking a lot about a certain something or someone in your life. This thought stays engraved in your subconscious mind, and makes the subject of your dream. Whatever you see is either indicative of what you think or is some telling sign.
However, would you buy this theory even if you saw yourself killing someone in the dream? Seeing yourself murdering people – that sure is eerie. Perhaps worse than a nightmare. So, does that mean you really are thinking about a murder, and that you have a criminal’s mind? Absolutely not (at least in most cases). Dreaming about killing someone does not necessarily indicate a criminal mind. Let us take a look at all the possible interpretations of dreams involving killing people.
Interpretation of Dreams About Killing Someone
There are many reasons as to why your mind would recall a thought that relates to killing. And it is not easy to sum up the answer in one statement, because interpretations of dreams, good or bad, are extremely subjective. Each individual has a different thinking and significance for each thought. So, the interpretations may vary for different people. The compilation below is for informative purposes only. Do not start making decisions based on the meanings stated below.
At the end of the day, it is a dream. Sometimes it may signify important aspects of our lives, but sometimes they are just plain, simple, and random visuals that have no meaning and cannot be explained.
