Hit initially meant 'to meet with' and it is this meaning that we can apply spiritually. When a revelation occurs or some truth becomes obvious, it can hit with the force of a blow, as in 'it hit me all of a sudden'. A hit is the application of some force, so to be hit by someone in a dream or to be hitting someone suggests an aggression or emotion that we find difficult to deal with. To be hitting an object suggests frustration and finding an interpretation for the object may be of assistance. A hit may have the slang meaning of food, drink or drugs giving a false sense of bonhomie, which is short-lived, so in dreams a blow, hit or thump can suggest such a feeling. Phrases that contain hit, such as 'hit the ground running', suggest short, sharp action.
