Murderer Chases Us
Man trying to murder us.
I was in a hospital-type room that was upstairs in a house because we were hiding from a man who was trying to murder all of us. The man in the bed was about to have surgery the next day. His wife was in the room, trying to calm him down but not succeeding. The man had blood over him. I am a nurse in real life. In the dream, I told the wife that I would talk to him to calm him and lessen his anxiety, which I did.
Then the doorbell rang and I went downstairs. Another person in the hosue said she wanted me to meet someone, so I followed her into another room. A man was sitting in the chair and she said, "This is Robert" and I instantly knew that was the name of the man trying to murder us. I was enveloped with fear!
Main Life Issues:
Lost my job a few months ago and employer lied, so unemployment was denied.
Frightened. I woke up, shaken, unable to go back to sleep.
This dream has three story lines.
1) Someone faces drastic change (is about to have surgery);
2) Someone needs reassurance and receives it (nurse talks to surgery patient)
3) Someone is filled with dread when they come face to face with an agent of drastic change.
Death: Generally a symbol of change, drastic change.
Hospital room: Where people recover or wait for help.
Hiding: Feeling vulnerable, trying to avoid what is frightening or painful.
Blood all over the patient: A metaphor for the pain dreamer experienced.
Nurse reassures patient: Giving solace and encouragement. In this dream, it is a metaphor of the encouragement the dreamer is getting from their inner self, that tells them that whatever they have to go through, it will be okay.
Coming face to face with murderer: Confronting the source of one's problems, facing one's pain. In this dream, it is a metaphor for accepting where one is at, so that one can move forward.
What it Means:
You have had unexpected, drastic changes that feel painful and terrible, leaving you feeling scared and insecure. When you calm the patient in the dream, you are telling yourself to find your calm place, and are receiving words of consolation from your own soul. The fact that the murderer is still at large tells you that is is important to face the pain and accept the next steps. Death is a symbol of change, and murder is a metaphor of drastic change, and that is what you are going through.
Bottom Line: There are no frightening dreams, only frightened dreamers. The dream is saying you need to calm down, fact the pain and accept where you are at. That will allow you to take steps to reclaim your life and your inner strength. Take heart. Such unexexpected and painful changes can unseat your stable inner place, but the best may yet be ahead of you.
