EXAMPLE DREAMS

Example dream : Blood in a dream linked to the pain involved in a break up - the split had been difficult. The dreams meaning linked to this theme of "emotional pain" in the following context "I was talking about how I broke up with my ex and it made me realise how brutal and deliberate I was in ending it."
Example dream : Blood in a dream linked to the dreamer thinking about a female friend who was being chatted up by a black guy. The dreamer felt this guy was a sexual predator and would only use her for sex. So the blood was a symbol of his uncaring attitude and his to get what he wanted no matter how others are affected. So blood translated into the words "uncaring attitude" and the dream caught this exact feeling "I do not trust this guy as he will chase after my friend and use her for sex. He will not care about her feelings and she will end up hurt."
Example dream : In one dream two sharks are fighting together and one draws a little blood. The day before this dream the dreamer had tried to set off one friend against another but only in a friendly playful way. Blood has relevance in this situation as we say things like "his comment drew blood" meaning that someones feelings were hurt. In the dream one shark was bleeding and the dreamer noticed that one shark was much bigger than the other. The dream could be a metaphor for a thought like this "I tried to playfully set one friend off against another. Maybe this was a dangerous thing to do. Maybe one friend was much stronger than the other and causing them to argue led the weaker one being upset." This type of playful fighting that the dreamer was engaging in involves an element of risk. There is a line we must not cross and people can easily be hurt if we say the wrong thing. Yet this type of humour only works if it is quite edgey and involves a level of danger.
Example dream : Bleeding was a symbol for the dreamers emotional hurts after the split with her boyfriend.
Example dream : A dream with loads of blood took place as the dreamer was angry that her partner was friends with a woman that the dreamer did not trust. Why would she have a dream with loads of blood in? It's not entirely clear what the connection is. The dreamer did not trust a woman in real life and so the blood and guts and violence could be a symbol of all the problems she was capable of (and by the dream the dreamer may see her capable of anything). So maybe the dream captures this type of feeling "He does not realise what she is capable of."
Example dream : A very bloody game in a dream seemed to link to arguments with the dreamers future mother in law. Blood was a symbol of her deeply critical comments and wish to draw blood. Blood shows the level of hurt these arguments were causing.

Example dream : Bleeding in a dream linked to the dreamers feelings of depression. Bleeding was symbolic of all her emotional pain. In real life the dreamer had had a lot to deal with after her father died and also other stresses. When blood gushes out in the dream its an obvious metaphor for emotional upsets and could link to specific feelings like "My emotions just gushed out" and "all the bad feelings just spilled over". Its likely that the dream captures a specific feeling linked to her depression "Just recently its all been getting too much for me."
