Attacked

What does it mean to dream about being attacked?

Scary dream about my brother…

Scary dream about my brotherDream: I had this really scary dream about my brother and now I’m really worried that something evil is after us. We were getting ready to leave my house when I noticed lights flickering wherever I went in the house. I said “the power of Christ compels you” and they stopped but then quickly started flickering faster then they stopped. The lights in the hallway went on, and then started flickering leading down to the laundry room (where my brother was). I quickly ran to the laundry room and hugged my brother, made a cross with my fingers, and repeatedly screamed “the power of Christ compels you” waiting for it to come in through the doorway. After what felt like 5 minutes a very tall figure walked around the corner in a black hooded cape. He had a long nose and pale, old wrinkly skin. He kept his fix on my brother the entire time and stepped closer. I tried to keep screaming it but I was losing my voice. He was shrieking and breaking my fingers without touching me. I screamed again and he looked at me with pure anger before I woke up.

DreamsMaster: Yes, this is a scary dream, but you have nothing to fear from the dream itself. The dream likely represents your own personal struggles between good and evil, which might have to do with your own sense of guilt over something that’s happened in your waking world, or it could be about trying to rescue your brother from something you perceive as evil but feeling powerless to do so. As an example, another dreamer shared a similar dream in which she was trying to rescue a friend from an evil force, and it turned out the “evil force” in his life was drugs. Is there some kind of “evil force” in your life or in your brother’s life that you feel compelled to try to rescue him from?

In the dream you’re losing your voice as you desperately try to protect your brother, which could be symbolic of your sense of powerlessness at not feeling heard or listened to. Rescuers often become victims. The dream could be a warning that if you continue to try to rescue him, you could end up being a victim yourself if he turns his anger on you and cuts you out of his life completely.

The dreamer is the only one who can interpret their own dream, but hopefully my input has put you a little at ease as you explore what the dream is trying to tell you.

Attacked by a demonic presence…

demonic presenceDream: I dreamed I was being attacked by a demonic presence. It was choking me, I couldn’t breathe. I felt his weight on me. I was screaming help, help. I could hear myself, fighting this thing off me. My grandson shook me awake, he heard me screaming.

DreamsMaster: My initial instinct with this dream is to recommend you visit your doctor to rule out any health issues that may be causing you to experience this choking sensation and difficulty breathing due to pressure on your chest.

If you’ve indeed been experiencing health issues, then it’s possible that the “demonic presence” was your dreaming mind’s way of visualizing the threat of a violent death, and getting your attention to take immediate action.

If this literal interpretation of the dream does not fit for you, next take a look at the theme and symbolism. The most striking thing to me is the overwhelming sense of powerlessness. The aggressor is not in physical form, so your attempts to fight it off physically fail. One way of viewing this is that whatever the threat you perceive going on in your life right now, your defense must come from your spiritual core. This is where your strength resides.
