Being Murdered in Dreams

Being murdered in a dream can have many contexts. For one, being murdered can represent a struggle between the way you see yourself and what you want to become. People very often use the idea that you must “kill” your old self in order to reinvent yourself into a new person with a whole new changed persona. So, being murdered may not necessarily be a bad thing rather it can be the signs that you want a change in your life. Other contexts can include being depresses, wanting to escape your life, or fear of something being represented as the person murdering you.

  1. for three nights straight I’ve had dreams about some one trying to kill me i am 14 and this scares me i dont want to sleep at night because i am too scared

  2. I had a dream and it happened in the future of my life. I am still a teen but in this dream, I was a university student, living with a friend (I don’t even know who is that person in real life. I probably saw her face in the streets once). Someday, while we were studying in our own rooms for an exam, 5 intruders came in our house. I didn’t hear them because I was listening to music. They took my friend in the bathroom and they tortured her. I removed my earbuds, suspecting some noise then I heard my friend shout in intense pain, accompanied with laughters that didn’t come from her. I then understood that there was intruders. I called the police, saying there was strangers in house torturing my friend and that I was scared they would get me, but the police never came. I called them 5 times in my dream, telling them the same line, but the police still never came. When I heard that my friend stopped to scream and the stranger’s voices going away, I went into the bathroom. There was blood everywhere, and I saw that there was her teeth, all linked together with the braces she wore, on the counter of the bathroom (that was horrible! I remember it so clearly!). I then understood that she had been horribly tortured, and it would probably happen to me too. I didn’t dare open the bath’s curtains, I knew my friend’s corpse was in the bath.
    I tried to call the police another time, but the intruders came back into the bathroom and saw me. The bathroom was very small, so I couldn’t escape. I only remember that I was being stabbed several times, that I could feel the pain and that I was screaming, then I woke up in real life, shaking.

    I don’t think I’ll forget this dream anytime soon! It was a horrible nightmare!
    Does someone know what in the hell this dream could tell about my life?
    Thank you!

  3. I had a dream I was add a new job trying to train with a couple of other people and a guy behind my back grabbed me and started trying to hold me hostage for some random reason I pulled out a screwdriver and started launching at him then other people came to my defense and pulled out weapons also but the guys get started murdering everybody finally grabbing me and cutting my throat and I swear I could feel every bit of it with a huge knife and let me drop to the ground and bleed to death I can see myself leaving out in the Dream from my neck it was horrible the worst part is he was leaving all of us was murdered and he came back because I was gasping for breath I can feel every bit of this dream FYI and then pulled out a gun and pointed it to my head and shot me to finish the job

  4. In my dream, there was a warning going around about a murderer. People around me were dying, being found in awful ways after being attacked by the murderer, but there was one child that I watched die. There were two children, aged about 5, watching a Red Kite bird fly around scouting for food over the top of a dead lake bed. One of the kids fell over the railing preventing the steep fall down into it, he landed on a thorn bush if I recall correctly. This, however was not the cause of his death. The oversized bird swooped down and began to eat him. I screamed “Don’t look!” And jumped over the railing, but each time I jumped, I somehow ended back up the top, behind the railing again. Eventually, I gave up and talked to the living child, asking him where he lived, telling him that it would be ok. We reached his house and he went inside. Later on in the dream, I found myself at a broken down Volkswagen Camper where a group of teens were literally sitting there doing nothing. I knocked on the window, but got no response. They were all dead, yet they had no wounds. This is the point where I was killed. Stabbed repeatedly in the lower back. I felt every single knife entry. Yet the most vivid, scary part will always be the young child’s terrified screams of pain. What the hell could this possibly mean, if anything at all!?

  5. I just have dreams where I keep getting murdered . I can feel the pain. I act out and say I’m better this way.. and I’ll haunt you better than you are haunting me..

    I had a creepy haunted house dream with psychopathic killers in the house .
    I recently have been wanting to quit drinking and spicy food may be a trigger ..
    I also cheated on my boyfriend and feel really bad about it , wasn’t supposed to happen . Could it be a sign to end it ? Or am I premonitioning a murder, or perhaps my own death .

  6. I had a dream that I was in a maze and a serial killer came and cut my stomach open and I his in a little box of the maze. I then woke up and I went back to sleep. Then I was in the passenger of a truck with this guy and we come upon people in masks and they come and cut my stomach open again and I hide in another small area. I woke up again and went rolled over and fell back asleep. Has no problem. Rolled back over to the other side and the dream started again by me in an ambulance with my stomach wrapped and the medics in the masks from the second dream and then they cut my stomach even more. I woke back up and stayed up the rest of time. I had school the next morning. That whole day I was tired. What does this mean?

  7. I DREAM OF BEING MURDERED, my husband is some sort of top secret agent in a dangerous job. ( Really he is i the army). There is a someone muffling people around our house, woman horribly. I’m stepping over bodies and hiding , listening to the horrible screams of woman being cut up to death. I sea the murders face , i int recognise him.. then i see ,myself mere on a table top. my husband holding my cut open stomach together to attempt tisane our unborn baby thats already dead. (I’m not even pregnant). It was bloody a`and gory. then woke up.

  8. i woke up in the middle of the night from one of the most terrifying dreams ive ever had. there were all types of crazy things going on but one part of the dream that stuck out the most was when i was being murdered i could feel myself being repeatedly stabbed and the funny part about it is it wasnt really me being murdered it was some other women and it was like she was showing me who she was killed by and how it happend for the longest ive been trying to figure this dream out . but this wont be the first dream ive had like this , i tend to have a lot of paranormal dreams about past houses ive lived at that has had paranormal events happen to me . it is a must for me to figure this dream out

  9. I wake up strapped to a table, with a bright light hanging up above me. I hear a scraping sound to my left and turn my head. Sitting at a small round table is a man sharpening a variety of knives. As i look, he tells me that itd be better if i looked away when he starts. He then stands up and walks over to the table. He takes a rag out of his belt and begins shoving it into my mouth, explaining he doesnt like the noise. When he is done he steps to the foot of the table and pulls out a knife. Sometimes i look, sometimes i dont. He starts by making a shallow cut going all the way around my ankle, and then begins to pull the skin up and slice it away in strips. I feel burning agony as he works his way up my leg, then to the next, then my arms, then my chest, then my face. All while talking to me, telling me horrible things, all about what ive done and will do if given the chance. When hes done, he stares for a few minutes, then walks up and buries the knife in my chest, down to the hilt and twists. I can feel the blood filling up the lung he punctured and begin running up my air passages, where i start to choke on it. As i pass out, i wake up. This happens to me every night, seven days a week 365 days a year. Im at the end of my rope, waking up and having it only be a few hours after i fell asleep

  10. I dreamt three people were chasing me to murder me. They were strangers one man and two women, a family possibly. They found me at work, in a parking lot and a theme park. I asked a policeman for help he brushed me off but his radio said there’s been six murders. I’m wondering what it means it was a very real dream, I’m a woman if that matters to the dream.

  11. I’ve currently been having a constant nightmare, Ive had the same nightmare for 3 nights and this includes me running through a dark and gloomy park, there are loads of tall trees surrounding me and it’s completely black, I can just about see my hand in front of my face. I start to get chased by a group of boys or men I can’t really tell, they chase me and chase me, I finally think I’ve found a hiding place behind a massive tree trunk, until one of the boys/men drag me from behind the tree, I am passed from one to the other and I am sexual assaulted by each and every one of them, after they have finished they all talk it in turns to stab me with the end of a very sharp stick/ branch. After this they kick and beat me to death, I’ve always woken up after this. I don’t know if there is a reason that this is happening but I’d love to have guidance on why my dream is like this. I recognise one of the people in my dream and it’s starting to really scare me. I know it’s not normal and I need somebody to give me the reason why.

  12. I was with my friends. We were racing our cars on this never ending parking lot. Then this pther car came out of nowhere. We parked to see who it was. It was a man who came out of his car with guns. We admittedly began to run, but this dude was crazy fast. He shot and killed one of my friends( just a couple shots to him) then he pointed it at me. But he seem to be more chaotic and violent with me. He wasted all his rounds on me. He then got a machete and began to cut out my eyes then decapitate me. I fight back but was not successful.

  13. I was with my friends chilling out somewhere, we were having fun. Suddenly someone came from the back side and killed one of my friend. After tht he chased us. I was able to hide and looking for some ways to escape, but I woke up at that point.

  14. Dream 1: There was a classroom shooting and I didn’t see who it was but I got shot in the back. The weird thing is it didn’t hurt but I was getting really weak.

    Dream 2: I was interviewed for a job. The girl after me didn’t get interviewed and went beserk. I wanted to put her in her place but decided to call the cops. She ends up choking me and I’m to weak to stop her.

  15. I dreamt I was murdered by a poison dart, it missed, but I still pretending to die, so the one trying to kill me, would think I was dead……

  16. I’m having recurring dreams of being murdered while I’m alone ,and in bed or getting out of bed . Only once have I actually seen the killers face. But on one ocassion I was just about to meet my demise,I Turn my head and there was a long lady covered in blood lying dead from to killer who was about to do the same thing to me.And as soon as the killer bashes my head I woke up. I am a trusting person and fell if confronted head on I can defind my or over power the killer. But is this why my dreams only happens while I’m in bed or vulnerable

  17. It’s never the same. It’s always different, sometimes I’m hunted, sometimes they’re my friends, other it’s just a normal day and all of a sudden some one is after me. Every night, 2-3 times a night. I can never sleep. What does this mean? Why can’t I sleep? Is there any way to stop these dreams by myself?

  18. In my dream there were three large metal claws, like old fashioned gardening tools. They were in a pile in my grandads house(not in real life) A woman who I did not recognize had been hurt by one of them and it puzzled me so I tested how sharp the instruments were, the largest was quite blunt. Next thing I know there is a little boy trying to play with the claws, I told him that he shouldn’t as that was how Grandad got his scars on his face (also not true) the boy left and I went to move the claws, the largest one was gone and I started to panic. I turned around and a woman who I could not make out lunged at me with the claw and pushed it against my throat. I knew I would die so closed my eyes and prayed. Everything went black and I woke up still in my dream.it goes on a bit so I won’t bore you with the rest but I was just wondering about what on earth it means

  19. I’ve had this dream ever since I can remember someone PLEASE HELP it rendures me motionless in fear every time I wake up from it.
    I was running and there was someone following me and I went into this house. I locked myself in a room with a floral pattern on the wall that was blue and a pink floral bedding like mid 1900’s style . The room was a rectangle and to my right was a end table the bed was in front of me and to the left against the wall that my back was to there was a tall dresser and in front of me kiddy cornerd facing me (diagonally across the room) there was a t.v on static. I went across the bed in a panic to a old fashioned phone and started sliding the numbers I heard a horrid scream that pierced my ears and I looked at the t.v and there was a girl in there playing with something and when I looked at her She made eye contact with me and her eyes were all black. I could literally feel panic like I knew I was gonna die, the door broke down the static on the t.v started again I was thrown onto the floor then I was watching my body fight off this person but he won and gutted me and I swear to fucking God felt it. From the running heart racing ear piercing screams to the knife rupturing my stomach. HELP

  20. I had the dream three times where I wake up in an abandoned trailer and as I start to work my way down to my home I see the same man and for some reason he does not like therefor sending his friends to try and kill by any means necessary. In the dream I star to fight for my life by killing them using anything I can but I can’t find a way out unless I wake up p. too scary and vivid for me so if that means change lord knows I want and need it.

  21. I have been having a recurring dream since i was a kid where i am chased around in a huge labyrinth-like building by a masked man in black, the building changes every time and by the end of the dream he catches me. He kills me somehow, that too changes every time, and when he unmasks himself it’s me. Ive been having this dream about once a year since i was 8 and often wonder what it means.

  22. I’ve had several dream in which I die this is the most recent.

    In real life I had recently discovered a lump on my back but it’s probably nothing. It gets me thinking about making an appointment to get it checked out. In my dream eventually I end up in a car with my mother. We are supposed to arrive somewhere but instead she stops at a free clinic for an examination. I meet a black man who complements me on my hair, I couldn’t tell if he is being sarcastic but he look rather unkept. He takes me to the back office looks like a run down old club room with paper everywhere. I sit there alone for a moment until another man come asking me to persuade him to help me. He was implying he wanted a bribe, I open my wallet and he reaches in grabs several bills. I protest and try to leave, he grows angry shoves me down and a small crowd of clinic workers look on. I protest that I come here for a deal, and I begin to regret not turning around at first sight of this place. He mocks me and says you are new, implying I have to pay my dues. He then pulls out a revolver, I try to run but there is no time, he lays in five shots. Everything instantly goes black and I feel myself fall to the ground. (I don’t know if this is a dream or if this is real.) I try to will myself to get up and run. I feel myself fading, desperate I beg my body to get up, fight, wake up, wake up. I wake up in real life, I’ve been holding my breath since I’ve died in my dreams.

  23. I had 2 dreams in one but the first felt almost real…. at first it was me and my girlfriend going to sleep and after she fell asleep I awoke with her killing me. In the second, she was pregnant, she went to the store but left her phone at home with me. Two black.guys stormed in saying how they were moving in not even realizing that j was there til I shouted at them ” get the fuck out if my house.” I gonna assume the one who spoke up.was the leader and said “you don’t understand, im fixin to make this my room.” Next thing I know I’m dialing 911 and running for my life. After a few minutes of that I’m being drug by my hair and all of a suddeni feel this sharp pain in my shoulder as something grinds into the bone. Before to long I blacked out and woke up into an overly alert mind running a million miles a second. Nit the first time I’ve had dreams like these.

  24. I have always been haunted in my dreams, but it was never me who was killed. Lately, it has been me. The latest one was where I was walking through the mall with a “friend”, who was a girl I’ve never seen before. She was walking quickly ahead of me, trying to get away as I stumbled behind her in a drunken stupor with a plastic cup of a spiked drink. Then, I am at my grandmother’s house (she and I were close before she passed away and a lot of my nightmares take place here). My sister comes into the living room and knocks a bunch of pills out of my hands and I scramble to pick them up. Then, we are standing at the kitchen island and I had just shot up with heroin. She stares at me with disapproval, and then she walks away. A strange man walks in to take me to the back room to lie down. As I am lying on the floor under a blanket, another man pulls out a sword and begins taking “practice shots” at a third man while the first man watches. Before the man is dead, the killer stops and the man doubles over clutching his stomach. The killer then slams the edge of the blade across my throat with the blanket still covering it, so I couldn’t scream. He then instructs the first man to pull the blanket off me, which he does. Immediately, the killer raises the sword and begins chopping and slicing my abdomen, so viciously that he actually has to take a second to grab the dying man by the back of his shirt and tosses him across the room to finish. All of this I can feel until I am supposed to be dead, but I am still conscious. The killer is not satisfied until I am in two very bloody and mangled pieces. Then, I am a passenger in a car with two strange men, the driver was supposed to be my boyfriend.

    This dream really got to me, not only because of the pure evil vibe of the dream and the fact that I still felt the effects after I awoke with severe pain in my abdomen, but because everything that happened was completely the opposite of who I am! I have never touched a drug other than what was prescribed to me and I very rarely drink, nor do I surround myself with various men…this dream still haunts me and I have no idea what it means…

  25. My mother died when I was 15. Her other children went to live with their father(my step father) in Georgia. She didn’t leave us anything in her will because she didn’t have anything to give. So I’m having trouble interpreting my dream.
    In my dream I was talking to my mother while she was cooking dinner. We were in a large 3 story, empty house. I talked to her for just a second. She told me there was jewelry upstairs in her room. I ran upstairs and had to break into the room because it was all boarded up, like most of the empty house. I found some of the jewelry. But as I was about to take it and hide it my step father tried breaking into the room. I was pushing the broken door so he wouldn’t open it. He was trying to stab me through the crack of the door but it was so thin he just punched through the middle of the door and stabbed me in the heart. Then I woke up.

  26. My dream was very odd. My friends and i are camping near a lake. Theres a beautiful brick church that has a cute dock off over the lake so we stop to get a closer view. My friends all walk back to the jeep and i stay there, Staring at myself in the water seemed to calm my nerves. Until a preacher wearing one of those outfits the excorcize in comes up behind me and starts to drown me in the lake. My friends dont notice untill its too late. There horrified faces looking out the back window of the jeep are the last thing i see before i wake up.

  27. I dreamed that the guy i’m seeing was a murderer and had murdered alot of women and left them hanging in a tree, he hadn’t been caught and i was watching tv and they put a picture of him on the tv saying he was a murderer and if anyone had seen him to turn him in.

  28. My dream was being shot on the sidewalk in my wedding dress with my mother driving on the street talking to me. after I am shot, my mother gets toward me and I say I love her, which confused her because she don’t understand why I am randomly saying that until she realized what happened and began to cry. But I reassure her that its okay and that I will be fine and that I loved her very much.

    1. I’m originally from a large city with a high murder rate. 15 yrs ago I moved to a smaller state which is when the dreams began. Each dream is me running from people or a person trying to kill me. I’m always somewhere like a house or abandoned building. Every dream I try my hardest to hide or get away. Sometimes I’m caught but most times I get away or find a good hiding place. There are also times when I don’t get away & am killed by this peron or group of people. I have had this dream every couple of months for the past 15yrs. Tonight I was at a skating rink in my dream with my daughter & left my purse at our table. Someone stole my phone & I flipped out (which I do often in real life). The guy came bk feeling humiliated by me & had his girlfriend shoot me & i dont want to type the rest but my daughterwas on my lap as i tried to shield her.

      Earlier this evening I did repremand her about getting a new pair of boots muddy at school today. As mentioned before I have been known to confront people when i feel im being disrespected or done wrong.

      I don’t know why after all these yrs i still have these dreams of being killed or hunted down. Please help!!
