DREAM DICTIONARY - Cut :

The symbolism of any dream may link to any situation or any emotion that you can connect in any way to the dream symbol. Collect together possible emotions and situations. Think of ways in which use the word "cut" in a wider sense. We say "I didn't meet the cut", "he cut me out of his life" and "he gave her the chop". Dreams can link to any ruthless action where you resist or reject someone.

KEY WORDS :ruthless, cut someone out of your life, fired, sharp and dangerous, getting the chop, shunned, bitter opposition, resist, exaggerating how bad someone is, delete, rejected, forbidden topic, stopped you talking about something

Now think of ways in which you might use any of these key words to describe any of your feelings right now. Think especially of key thoughts which pinpoint your thinking and crucial changes in your thinking. Think of sentences like "That shelf fell down last night and it could have caused a lot of harm - it felt very sharp and dangerous" or thoughts like "I hate the state of the economy. I fear getting the chop at work as there are no new orders coming in". Its a fallacy that dreams link to unconscious feelings - we are aware of most thoughts which trigger dreams. So simply write down your key feelings and look for ways in which the symbolism seems to have some relevance.

EXAMPLE DREAMS

Example dream : A dream where the dreamer wanted to cut the head off a snake took place when the dreamer was realising that he had to confront a neighbour who was actively trying to get him evicted. Trying to cut the snakes head off was a symbol for his need to stop this neighbours complaints.
Example dream : Trying to cut a wolf's throat linked to the dreamer thinking about all the pressure he was under to have an arranged marriage. Cutting the throat symbolised his bitter opposition to all this pressure. We could even translate "cutting" in this dream into the words "bitter resistance" and the dreams meaning would link to this type of thought "I am under constant pressure to agree to an arranged marriage. I am bitterly against this."
Example dream : Cutting off his brothers head in a dream linked to the dreamer thinking seriously about 'cutting' himself off from his dysfunctional brother and all his problems.
Example dream : A dream about a devil cutting out the dreamers unborn baby linked to the dreamer worrying about her husband being deported. Cutting out her baby symbolised the serious damage the immigration problems were having on there family life. (knives can do serious damage)
Example dream : Frenzied killers cutting up a body linked to the dreamers thoughts about her boyfriends family - she really hated being with them and it was all made worse by her boyfriend dismissing her claims as ridiculous and exaggerated. The 'cutting' up of the body symbolised the dreamers boyfriends belief that these claims were exaggerated - his family were being portrayed as completely crazy (knife wielding maniacs).
Example dream : One dream was about a plane which almost cuts power lines. In real life the dreamer woke up and found that there was a power cut. This seems a remarkable coincidence and the dreamer felt that this was a premonition.
