Considering that dreams are 99 percent of the time, symbolic games played by the subconscious mind. Each root meaning is played out in what appear to be unrelated events, but are actually very closely related when thought in terms of meaning, emotion, and symbols.
It’s just another language. But it is a logical language, and one that each person can understand for themselves. Just remember, don’t think literally, in fact, think with emotion. Always look first at the symbolic of the event in the dream. Study the emotion that arises during the dream and, while you are awake, reflect on the dream.
Hitting others in dreams is certainly a dream with an emotional counterpart. You are angry or scared and you are defending or protecting someone from something.
This is not rocket science, of course. What in real life are you afraid or angry about? Remember that it may have nothing to do with the physical person in your dream, but it could be who you represent. A teacher could simply represent authority. A vampire could represent something in your life that is draining your energy.
Just look at your life while you are awake and you will find what this thing is. It will be something that has been on your mind lately, either consciously or unconsciously.
This type of dream is bringing to your consciousness what has been going on in your mind lately. Your mind wants to figure this out, rather than getting in the way like you’ve been doing it. Let this dream bring this situation fully to mind, so that you can put some effort into figuring out what this is.
What if you have a hitting dream, in which you are trying to hit something but seem unable to move your arms? This is a frustrating dream and one that I personally have often had. In my case, it was based on my enormous efforts to invent and commercialize my ideas. The inventing process was easy for me, but the marketing aspect really felt like it was throwing useless punches. At the time I was trying really hard and just wasn’t getting anywhere.
He was building up a high level of frustration both consciously and unconsciously. This frustration manifested itself in a dream in which I felt I had to defend or protect myself, and my efforts to do so were weak or ineffective. This same type of dynamic can appear in a dream in which you try to run away from something that is chasing you, but you discover that your legs are not working.
All the clues as to what the underlying problem will be in the dream, even if they are mostly symbolic. You already know that not being able to move your body in the way you want also means that there is something in your life where you feel inadequate. Now all you have to do is think about the other elements of the dream to see what they represent symbolically.
The fact that you are having this dream suggests that you are ignoring this attribute in your waking life. So whatever the problem, it may be something that you just don’t come up with. But you can be sure it’s something you’re putting a lot of excitement on, even if it’s off the radar.
Also keep in mind that you are having these dreams as the body’s self defense mechanism. The emotional body and the physical body will take steps to protect themselves. You will vomit if you eat something your body does not want. You will have a recurring dream if you hold on to negative feelings. Feeling fear or being inadequate will trigger these dreams in you in an attempt to get your conscious mind to take action. Your subconscious mind already understands that if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change. The point here is that you have been carrying negative feelings for the body with you. And you’ve been doing it for quite some time, as you now have recurring dreams about it.
So, reflect on yourself and discover the source of this dream. Find a way to deal with it in your mind, so that you are left feeling at peace with the situation. When you do this, you will quickly get over this type of dream.
I have heard that marijuana smokers often have these kinds of dreams. If this is the case, it is most likely because marijuana tends to make people lethargic and not take action. After all, sitting high all the time, one would not be motivated to take actions in life that one should be taking. So I can see this dream manifesting itself when emotional bodies try to make one realize this fact, and maybe I will ease the weed a bit and start taking positive action to move on.
