What Does My Dream Mean: A Knife Dream That Seemed Prophetic
Here’s a recently submitted dream that’s, well, more than just a little creepy:
My fiance and I had become vampires. I was really happy about this and wanted nothing more. We wanted to purchase a motorcycle to go to bike week. I said we should shop for a nice new outfit for me first. We went to some clothing shops in a country downtown atmosphere.
I started worrying that maybe I was not really a vampire, maybe I could get hurt. I decided to cut my hand to see if it would heal quickly. As I looked at the wound I had given myself a flash of a dog with a stab wound to the eye came into my vision. The vision came and went very fast. I then saw my hand heal and felt excited again about being a vampire but confused about the vision.
I am a fan of twilight so I can understand why I would have a dream like this. My problem with it is what happened a few days after my dream.
I work at an animal shelter. At work a dog came in that had been stabbed in the stomach and in the eye. The knife was still lodged in the dogs’ eye. This was done by a cop in “self defense”. The dog had to be euthanized. After the dog was dead the knife was removed and it was the same image I had seen in my dream..
It was a traumatizing event for me to witness and the fact that I had a vision of it in a dream is making me crazy wondering how or why.
First of all, the vampire theme: I’ve gotten many (make that many, many, many) dreams over the past few years about vampire dreams. When I double-checked for a pattern, I found what I suspected – they mainly occurred around the release of Twilight and New Moon! Not surprisingly, people who are romantics at heart see this as something too delicious not to partake of in their dreams.
Some people are wondering if dreaming of vampires means they are looking for or craving excitement. It’s actually, in most circumstances, more on a romantic path than anything else…. especially since, as you said, you are a Twilight fan (me too by the way!).
Second of all, dreaming of a knife in any way is a symbol that there’s something in your life that you’d like to remove. Knife dreams indicate that the dreamer has something they want to get out of their life – or cut out of themselves (such as bashfulness, bitterness, a weight problem… even a bad memory). The dog in the dream is very much expected, given your work. He would seem to indicate that what you want to remove from your life is at least partly connected to your job.
As for the hideous incident with the dog, it truly was a most unfortunate coincidence. I can see how the vision would be troubling and difficult to get out of your mind. It will take time, but eventually your mind will be filled with adorable cats, dogs, and other patients who meet with much, much happier endings.
I hope your dreams and your thoughts are much sweeter very, very soon!
