Dream: I dreamed I was stabbed several times. What does that mean for me?
DreamsMaster: To fully understand the meaning of a dream, more details are required. For example, did you know the person or people who stabbed you? Where were you when the stabbing took place? What part of your body did they stab?
If you knew the person who stabbed you, then the dream could be warning you that this person is not to be trusted – especially if you were stabbed in the back, reenacting the metaphor about betrayal.
If you did not know the person, then the person could symbolize a part of yourself sabotaging you. Perhaps you have a ruthless inner critic and you tend to beat yourself up or “cut” yourself when you think you’ve said or done something “stupid” or wrong.
Most of our dreams relate to something on our mind when we went to bed. Consider this as you think about the interpretation ideas I’ve suggested, and see if more ideas come to you.
