Clown Trying to Kill
A Clown Is Trying to Kill Me and My Family
I've had numerous dreams about clowns that kill.
I was having a normal dream about school. Then the scene becomes a fire explosion outside of school and everyone was in a mad panic. Clowns came out of some room telling me I have so many hours until they will come and find me. It was at my old house where I haven’t lived at in over 6 years.
After a while of me searching for ways of to kill that clown, I go downstairs where I usually face these clowns at my old house. My mother was there and the clown came in and tried attacking my mom although she didn't see it. So basically I break a clown’s jaw, stab it in the face with a butcher knife causing it to focus on me and leading to me killing it. Then I woke up in a panic. I haven't had a dream about a clown in a long time and was worried. Is there something wrong with me?
Main Life Issues:
Social anxiety, trusting a certain girl in my life.
It’s a story about trying to defend oneself from something that can bring happiness, but that has turned bad.
Explosion: Something that blows up; metaphor for an unexpected bad event such as a fight or negative words with someone.
Mom: Represents love and security, which in this dream, is threatened.
Clown: Someone foolish and very different; in this case, a metaphor of fears of being different or foolish to others.
Trying to Kill: Death as a metaphor for change or transformation; being killed as a symbol of a threat and a change that feels forced.
Butcher knife: A tool, one in this case that is wrongly used.
Have so many hours to live: A deadline, a major change that is imminent.
What the dream Means:
There is nothing wrong with you. Dreams are often stories of how life feels and how we see ourselves and others. This dream suggests that life feels vulnerable and that at times, you feel under attack. At age 20, life demands many changes like finding a career etc., which can be hard. Understanding the rules of the game and how to play can be puzzling but you will get there.
The killer clown that you kill in self defense suggests that you don’t want to look foolish to others, and may be over sensitive to the opinions of others. And you may have a lot of pride which is a good thing, except that if you can’t relax and go with the flow when needed, pride can become a prison instead of a badge of honor for things well done.
The dream suggests you are dealing with issues of trying to earn respect from others, yet have fears that they do not and will not take you seriously. And inside of you, there may be a part that is clown-like, a part of you that can make people laugh and feel happy, a lighter side of you.
The clown may also suggest that you are taking life too seriously and are trying to “kill” that lighter side of yourself. Yes, life is serious and needs your best foot forward yet at another level, it is also important to be able to laugh, relax, and not take things too seriously.
Bottom Line: Behaving seriously versus letting the light side of you come out to play is all about balance and doing the appropriate thing at the appropriate time. You will get there.
