Free and Professional Dream Analysis and What Dreams Mean
Attacked at School
I was at my high school in a long, narrow hallway. The left side was all wall with an open door at the end leading to the school. The right was rows of doors, like sliding closet doors. As I walked with other students, a door slides open and two SWAT team men scream, “the gunman is shooting, the attack must be personal!”. The SWAT men tell us to run; others didn't hear but I do, and I run, and the SWAT men are shot in the head. Students go crazy, it gets chaotic, teachers are screaming and kids are crying, people are being shot. I pick up a Golden Handgun and start shooting at the shooters and run to the open door at end of the hall. I almost get there before I’m shot in the back a couple of times. I wake up screaming and crying, I can feel myself dying. I woke up terrified.
Death and School.
Someone is given a heads up about an attack and those who warn them about the attack are destroyed. A special tool brings partial success, though the tool user does not go unscathed.
SWAT team: Those who help others through a drastic encounter.
Shooting: Attacks; in this case, likely verbal attacks and snipes between teens.
Death: Change, a lot of change.
What it Means:
The dream is not about a shooting at your school. Most dreams are metaphors and dreams exaggerate to make a point. As a teenager, your dream is about verbal attacks and hurtful remarks that teen friends make at school.
Gossip at school and verbal sniping can cause a lot of emotional chaos and even when you try to defend yourself, you get hurt, which is what the dream shows. You have likely experienced such nastiness at school and as the beginning of a new school year gets close, you are getting anxious about what may happen with friends or cliques, which the dream mirrors.
Dying at the end suggests a lot is changing in you and in your life, and that is not a bad thing. We continuously grow and change, and get stronger.
Bottom Line: The dream is there to help you increase your self confidence. Confront your fears in the next school term. Own your confidence and decide how to handle nasty words, gossip or people. Talk to good friends or adults about such strategies; that can help.
