A sense of spiritual injustice may be represented by scenes or acts of violence in a dream. A violent reaction to something in dreams suggests some kind of spiritual distress. When we are unable because of social pressures or circumstances to express ourselves properly, we can find ourselves behaving violently in dreams. If others are behaving violently towards us we may need to take care in waking life not to upset others, or it may be that subconsciously we are aware of others? distress. Any violence in dreams is a reflection of our own inner feeling, sometimes about ourselves, sometimes about the situations around us. Often the type of violence fighting or extreme behaviour, for example is worthy of notice if we are fully to understand ourselves. Also consult the entries for Anger and Fight.
