Deep cut and bleeding dream

If you bleed in real life its because you have some injury. If you bleed in a dream it will more often be linked to some emotional pain or problem.

THE DREAM This one guy came to me when I was in the garage and said this sheet metal wasn't thick enough. So I took it in the garage I was talking to someone and saying I don't know how to make it bigger so I started stapling things to it. I was closing the garage door so they wouldn't come back but they got it then I was tied to a chair and these two other people (a boy and a girl) were also tied up but they were my friends. I didn't know who they were. So this one guy shot me in the stomach. Then they went after the guy that was my friend. I guess his name was Ryan because I kept saying that name. But they had knifes and they were just cutting him not deep enough to kill but to cause pain. I was saying stop it every time I spoke this guy beside me would stab a toothpick in my legs. So then everyone's heads were down. I could see through the corner of my eye the guy slit the girl's throat and then the guy I think they slit his. I didn't really see it, but then they came at me. I jerked up somehow and got away. I was running down my driveway.

Two guys were behind me saying see you tomorrow. I ran by my friend's house and these clowns were coming out. I ran around the corner there was a car accident. A clown was on the ground. Someone behind. He said "that's Blank for ya"(I forget his name) I was running down the side walk. There was a big traffic jam. Then I jumped into the street. Everything went slow motion. There was an explosion or something but all the cars were being crammed together from the force of the explosion. They were backing up heading for me. I went on the side walk again but then I was outside of a theatre where you get your tickets for the movie. I was still bleeding pretty badly but no one was helping, they ignored me. Then this grandma was talking to this girl saying, "is this...."? But was cut off by the girl saying "yes grandma." She sounded angry with her grandma. So I was going to this one movie the door was very hard to open you had to press a button at the same time as you pushed on the door but it was heavy too. I went back out then I saw a shadow and I knew it was them. I tried to get the door open but it wouldn't open and the guy said "www it's locked." I could feel his smile though

THE REALITY The dreamer was experiencing a lot of disruption at that time. Her sister had run away from home and there was a lot of fighting in the house. She was trying to discuss and share her problems with friends but felt as if they were not helping.

THE INTERPRETATION Well this dream is probably quite difficult to examine in very close detail. But it is very obviously linked to the dreamers current emotional situation. This dream features a lot of men and lots of stabbing and bleeding. That is often symbolic of male type emotions and painful feelings. So we have a good fit with the dreamers personal state of mind. When asked the dreamer mentioned that she felt let down by her friends. In the dream she is bleeding - obviously in need of support - but she is ignored.

One obvious symbol to link to this lack of support is the clowns. The dreamer wants help from friends but gets none. Perhaps the clowns symbolise their own fixed and pointless smile. It shows a superficial type of expression which in real life has no meaning. Maybe it symbolises the exact expression on the friends face. In difficult moments a friend maybe will not know what to do. How could they help someone in the midst of real and very complex emotional situation.

Traffic is symbolic of mixed feelings and indecision. In the dream the dreamer is presumably trying to move forward and make progress in her situation. Yet things have suddenly come to a standstill.

One interesting symbol is the slow motion. When something happens in slow motion it often links to things which are very predictable. We can see every aspect of the situation yet we are unable to act. For instance when a child is slowly getting worked up you know soon that what is going to happen is quite predictable. The child is going to have a temper tantrum. The slow motion shows the intense focus on the dreamers situation and knowledge of what is happening.

The movie theatre perhaps links to the very public way that the dreamer is sharing these major life changing emotions with friends. The movies represent the major issues of her own life being replayed publicly for her friends to see.

Perhaps the door is heavy because it symbolises the serious and very difficult issues which the dreamer is trying to express. Perhaps this is too serious for her friends.
