5 Murder Dream Meaning (What does murder mean in a dream)

SUMMARY
Dreams about murder can represent the suppressed anger within you, failures, insecurities, and even new beginnings.

Had a dream about murder and thought now you are going to witness a murder on your way to the office? That is not going to be true. But yeah, dreams about murder have a lot to do about what’s going on in your waking life. Your unconscious mind takes up the pieces from your waking life and joins them to form the mental images that you see in the dream.

Apart from that, your dreams also depend on your dominant, submissive, and suppressed thoughts and feelings. A dream can also be a message or a warning from your higher self. Let’s know what it really means when you witness a murder in a dream.

1. You have suppressed anger within you

Usually, dreams about murder occur due to the suppressed anger people hold in their hearts in their waking life. Life can be hard sometimes and it makes us really mad at certain people and situations.

If we don’t know how to deal with the anger positively and repress it in order to avoid feuds, it takes a toss on us and affects us in a negative way. Your dreams about murder are a result of that. I advise you to take professional help under such situations.

2. You are aggressive in your real life

I know some people who engage in verbal and physical fights just to prove a point. They can start from ruthlessly abusing people and can reach the extent of hitting them?

Are you one of those?

People who see dreams about murder are often those who are extremely aggressive in their waking life. Everything upsets them and they are seen engaging in fights and abusing weak people more than others. This is especially true when they are the ones who were murdering someone in their dreams.

3. You are going to experience new things

Now we are coming to the positive side of dreams about murder. Our subconscious mind has weird rules of symbols and interpretations. Death is also associated with the ending of old things and the beginning of new things.

So, if you murdered someone in a dream, it signifies that you put an end to an old aspect of your life, like an old job, relationship, toxic behavior, or shifted house. Now, new beginnings are waiting for you!

4. You think you have failed

Failure in achieving your goals and dreams feels similar to murdering your aspirations and a life you always wanted for yourself. People who think they have successfully failed in some important aspect of their life have high chances of having this dream.

This dream is the result of the hopelessness and disappointment they feel for the future. This dream comes as a message that you need to change your way of approaching things as soon as you can as accepting failure and having thoughts of hopelessness is not an option.

5. You are jealous of someone/something

Dreams about killing someone are one of the common dreams if you are jealous of someone in your waking life. The person you are jealous of can be a family member, friend, co-workers, and others. Such dreams are the result of dream-seated jealousy in your heart.

The case just gets worse if you actually enjoy the dream. In such cases, it’s time to think about the good things they have done for you and be grateful for their existence in your life.
