Murder is a violent, law-based, illegal act. Taking another one's life also means gaining a punishment for one's soul and separation from God. However, killing someone through the act of self-defense is inevitable; what does this mean in a dream?
Why Am I Committing The Act Of Self Defense In My Dream?
Dreaming of the act of self-defense may be a sign that you have a fear for unexpected changes. You have been feeling worried to the bone because of how you are moving to another residence or career. However, dreams like these encourage us not to be afraid of what is ahead because you only receive lousy karma if you commit a terrible act.
If you dream about self-defense, this might be resembling your confusion about something that everyone has picked a side on. This dream means that you will encounter a challenging point later on in your life, and you will have to choose between two options.
Dreaming of self-defense can be an indication of the emotions that you have been bottling up. You may have gained lots of anger issues that have led you into making bad decisions causing awful consequences. You may not be ready to get rid of this kind of negativity because you feel like this is the only way you can let it out. Take this sign as a stepping stone to getting rid of these issues because not only are you hurting yourself, but the people who surround you.
Self-defense also indicates your hesitance whenever you are about to take dominance within a situation. You may have a rough time deciding about a particular thing; thus, you are becoming impatient. It is time to stop being so hesitant about the decisions you would like to make because you are not running out of time anytime soon.
Sometimes you are unrealistic and base yourself and your decisions on fairytales such as fantasies. This dream indicates that you rely on the sugar-coated side of your mind, and this is the cause of why you are unable to succeed. Try to seek advice from your friends or anyone you can trust to solve your current problems.
This dream can also indicate that you are a one-of-a-kind type of friend, and you have the characteristics of a social butterfly. You get along quickly with other people you meet, especially those who you meet unexpectedly. You are the friend who listens to all sides of the story during a conflict and quickly solves the problem.
Dreaming about self-defense is also an indication that you can lead any team successfully. You have the qualities that a good leader possesses, and because of that, you are often reaching stepping stones to new levels of success. This dream encourages you to keep up with this behavior because many people believe in your success.
A dream about self-defense can also indicate a need for change; you need to find your inner maturity. You have to retransform yourself into a better person who can decide freely and reliably. Finding your self-trust can also be the first step to this process because you are close to being a reliable person.
Similar to a murder dream, this dream also indicates that you need to end something in your life even if you never wanted it to end. These things may not serve you as much as before and quickly lead you to a rough path. Maybe an abusive relationship or a job that you are no longer passionate about needs to end even if you don't want it to end.
If you are addicted to something such as drugs, shopping, and the like, this means that you have to stop these habits. Even if it hurts to end these habits, these are indications that you have to trust in the process because ending the toxicity will give beautiful results. Patterns aren't that easy to lose, mainly because of the euphoria it gives you, but many people believe you can stop these practices.
Dreams like these can also be a sign of significant success within your personal life, and they may be related to your finances. You may receive lots of incoming benefits that will make you content and happy.
If you dream of accidentally killing yourself while you are committing the act of self-defense, this indicates that you are wasting something. You are wasting a valuable characteristic that you possess because of how you disregard your inner thoughts. Remember that your creativity serves as your capability of reaching the success you have always desired. However, this dream may also signify how you're taking your talents for granted; learn to value your abilities because they deserve recognition.
If you dream of killing someone in the act of self-defense by using a knife, this is a sign of misfortune. You may encounter lots of losses regarding your finances because of how you work. This time is not the right time to make big decisions or risks because good luck is not by your side as of now. Remember those sacrifices you want to take to make when you are on the luckier side of life.
If you dream of shooting a stranger by the act of self-defense, you may have desired to be heard by others. You may hide in your shell often because you feel like the things you do are not good enough. However, it is always best to be open to your workmates or your family members so they can improve whatever you want to change.
I actually wrote an extensive article about shooting dream that you may find interesting or you can also read about knife dream.
Dreaming of killing a stranger in the act of self-defense indicates that you are releasing massive destructive emotions within your subconscious. This message is a bad thing because you are dealing with problems that don't involve your presence. Maybe you are speaking your mind too much that many people are getting uncomfortable with how you think. It's better to disregard what they think of you and decide to work on yourself for the better.
