Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Tackled and Raped
I Dreamed I Was Raped
I was in the house where I grew up. I go outside and start walking down the very long driveway when I notice a male friend heading toward me with an aura about him that made the hair on my scalp and neck stand on end. I run but he's faster. He tackles me and hits me in the face and hits my head hard as it hits the ground. He tears off my shirt and bra and rapes me. When he's done he says, “Mmm … that was nice, it's nothing personal”. I run for help but nobody believes me. It felt like he was everywhere, overpowering me.
Afraid, on edge, defenseless, violated.
Main Life Issues:
Age 19, unhappy at work, lots of family problems
Someone is overpowered by someone who enjoys it and gets no help.
Rape: Being overpowered in all ways, including words and tyranny.
House where you grew up: Usually a safe place, but what that place means depends on what happened to the dreamer as a child. Also, attitudes learned in childhood.
Dangerous male friend: A man who should feel safe but feels threatening.
Chased and tackled: Feeling overwhelmed.
Running away: Feeling vulnerable.
The words, “It’s nothing personal”: A disclaimer that does not resonate. Relates to a boss or someone who leaves the dreamer feeling embarrassed and demeaned.
What the dream Means:
At age nineteen it’s important to avoid situations where physical rape could happen. However, the dream is more likely about a situation where someone expresses displeasure and puts you down when they communicate, such as at work or a family member. The story is a message about feeling hurt by someone who appears as if they enjoy power.
At the same time, the opening scene of being in the childhood home may suggest that some attitudes and expectations may be a bit childish. And because you feel vulnerable and violated, the dream is a message to learn how to constructively communicate and stand up for yourself. The dream invites you to learn to assert yourself in a positive manner, so that you do not feel overwhelmed or controlled. If the dream relates to a situation at work, bosses do have a right to make demands on your time and give you feedback about your work, but not in a demeaning way. Your responsibility is to be cooperative and to use polite words as your best defense and offense.
Bottom Line: Before entering into a verbal duel with anyone, especially those in authority, make sure what you say is valid and that you speak from a place of maturity and inner strength.
