I was trying to kill a woman (whom I didn't recognize). She was naked and she had her hands tied behind her back. I had a partner in crime and we were trying to kill this woman discreetly, so we wouldn't get caught. At one point the woman being killed turned into my brother-in-law. Then I remember noticing (when she was a woman again) that she had meridians painted all over her naked body. I thought "Didn't she know she was going to be murdered at the time she had her body painted?" My partner and I were outdoors in daylight and I believe we pulled the woman out of the boat(?) to continue the killing. My partner pulled the woman to the ground (on grass) and I laid on top of her to hide her body so that people passing by wouldn't notice. Although I knew we were killing her I do not recall making any violent attacks. The victim didn't die easily. I almost didn't want her to die as then I would have felt guilty. During all this, I was trying to make it to a dance recital that I was performing in. I remember watching the others rehearsing. Everyone in the performance had to hold a red rose and I saw each rose stem had been trimmed and a drinking straw attached as a handle.
Tier 1 Key Symbol or Action Taken - Killing
Dreams speak to us in metaphor, allegory, symbolism, word play and exaggerations. As frightful as this dream may have been to you, it does not mean that you have latent desires that are brewing to take another's life. According to many dream psychologists, we can use our dreams to explore activities that are forbidden in our awake lives. There is also the hypothesis that some dream motifs come from a more primitive functioning of the brain. From a time when killing was often necessary in order to live. Modern dream psychologists view the act of killing in a dream as symbolic of dealing with an aspect of the Self. Was there any aspect of the victim that you could identify with personally? More than just for an instance the female victim being your male relative. Could there be something familiar about the victim that has become a big preoccupation in your Awake life?
