Man I Am Attracted To Is Murdered
Death of the Man I am Attracted To
Yesterday I dreamed that the man I have a strong attraction to died. We work for the same organization. I was standing next to him, then suddenly a man came and told us he had to die. He made him lie down on his stomach and slit his throat from behind. Later, a workmate came to see me at home and told me he wanted me to meet a few people. I went out to greet them but in my sadness I burst into tears, crying on my knees "Why me?", in deep anguish.
The dream felt real. I woke up screaming with tears on my face.
Main Life Issues:
Love, career. He and I had mixed signals about our feelings for over a year. When I told him how I felt a month ago, he said he did not feel the same way and never has. Yet he never leaves me alone, always talks to me even after we agreed to keep out of each others space.
It’s a story of witnessing a drastic, sad ending and resisting the new.
Death: often relates to endings and/or major or intense changes in life.
Throat is slit open: Throat is how one communicates; a slit throat is a metaphor for a nasty communication or that no further communication is possible.
Lying face down on one's stomach: Not looking up, not in a position to face one's attacker. As an image, suggests dreamer feels vulnerable and is not being able to defend self.
Bursting into tears at work: An uncontrolled emotion, emotions that are not generally shared with co-workers. Image suggests that your feelings for the man may have gotten out of control and would have been better left unshared. It invites you to gain control of your feelings about the man.
What it Means:
Death as a symbol is generally a metaphor for a huge change. In your dream, this is a messy, drastic, painful death or ending and witnessing it corresponds to the changes in your experiences and relationship with this man.
The dream reflects how messy and painful this attraction has been. The dream is trying to help you digest the experience so that you can cope with it and put it behind you. People who work together sometimes fall in love, but as you've learned, that can be very tricky, especially if it does not work. Don't waste time feeling angry or feeling sorry for yourself. There is someone else out there who will think you are the best.
Bottom Line: For a new relationship to enter, you need to digest this experience and let it go. Your dreams are trying to help you do so.
Thanx so much. It is true that it has been a messy attraction and I’m glad the dream gave me a wake-up call. I needed it.
