Customer Question

I had a really gnarly dream where i was witnessing a lot of violence. There was a wall of police performing riot control with the big plastic shields holding attackers at bay. All of a sudden they began beating the people viciously with punches and nightsticks. I was seeing teeth being knocked out and massive amounts of bleeding untill one very calm man walked up with a giant gun and began firing shots in a mowing motion, injuring and killing all the cops and making way for him to walk in to the area they were blocking off. I ducked behind a car and continued to watch while trying to figure out what was going on. The man continued to fire shots in to the crowd as he walk through the parking lot of the complex. It seemed like he was looking for someone in specific. I waited for an opening and ran to what seemed like safety. I asked someone what was going on. They told me this guy was looking for someone in the apartment complex. The shots continued to get closer and closer. I ended up seeing the guy who was being hunted. He begins running and the man with the gun is right beside me at this point. People are still being shot at random. I dont remember exactly what happened next but at some point the gunman was handcuffed and seemed completely calm. I think he did murder the guy he was after. That is all i can really remember but i can clearly see the gunmans face and there was some sort of connection to the drug cartel.

Hi there. I have two thoughts on this matter but want more information. First, have you been watching the news or youtube videos of people rioting? Second, are you under a lot of stress or have some big decisions you need to be making at this point in time?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have not been watching any riot related news nor am i emotionally attached to any of the relating issues. My stress level feels normal but I have increased the intensity of my day to day schedule. The only decision I needed to make, I have made already. I was in the position to give bad news. I had been on the fence about telling someone that they are really bad at something they cared deeply about. I did tell them yesterday but am comfortable that I had done the right thing.

Typically, when there is chaos or fighting in a dream it usually relates to an increase in stress. Maybe the intensity of your schedule might have created some undo pressure and is being represented in a dream. As far as specifics on what the dream means, the best guess would be some unresolved conflict or tension happening in your life. Additionally, when you are a bystander in the dream there can be a sense of helplessness going on in your life. Any of this might be true?

I would be happy to help assist you in understanding the symbols in your dream. Please give me a little time to read over your dream please.

The dream most likely relates to the situation of you having to deliver this bad news. All depends on when you had this dream,before or after that took place? Overall a good dream, Showing obstacles being overcome.

The wall of police, is showing a higher authority you are having to take in order to overcome an obstacle. Such as this bad news you were referring to. This person who was murdering, perhaps could be the person you are having to deliver this bad news to. Or relates to your fears of how this person may react to your words. Or symbolic of a scary obstacle you are to overcome. Since they are shooting people, their words or actions are very harmful to those around them. Looking for someone in the apartment complex is showing a place of transition. Something temporary to take place., With the police arresting this man and everything seeming calm can relate to those feelings you are having right now after having to deliver this bad news. With it being a connection to the drug cartel can be relating to the person of who you are sharing this bad news with. Perhaps their personal choices are bad choices, relating to criminal activity, drugs, or just a bad path in life they are heading on.
