Fighting Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Fighting Dream Symbol РDreams about fighting are indications of how you are dealing with the problems, responsibilities and struggles in your life at this moment. They also give insights into the areas you need to work on and outside influences that may be making it harder for you to accomplish your goals.

Fighting dreamsFor instance, if you dream that someone else is attacking you and trying to fight you, and you try to run and hide from them, this is an indication that you feel helpless in the face of your struggles, and that your way of coping right now is to try to escape.

On the other hand, if you respond to attackers by fighting back and winning, this is a positive indication that you feel capable of taking on the struggles in your life, that you feel in control of yourself and your circumstances, and that you feel you can affect your circumstances to gain the outcomes you want.

Fighting dreams are often symbolic of the battle between our moral beliefs and our sexual desires or our intellect and our emotions. These internal conflicting forces can end up pulling you in different directions.

Sometimes these dreams also indicate a real life conflict that you have with someone in your waking life. If the enemy in your dream is someone that you know, it can be symbolic of a real life issue that you have with that person. You may have animosity towards that person and not even realize it.

To see a fight between a young person against an older person with authority can indicate a struggle that you have with authority. Perhaps you have problems with someone you know or an institution that has power over you.

To see yourself fighting someone who is your age could represent a rivalry that you have with a sibling or friend. You may have resentment towards that person and not even realize it.

  1. In my dream I fought with different people. Once they see that I won another person will appear and I will still beat them. They kept appearing until I beat about 4-6 of them. And I saw myself going home on my way I heard a voice from the bush telling the guy on the road with a matche to attack me I started running, had to run a long distance only to find a hut to hide . In there was a woman with children I told her my story she decided to help cover up so they won’t catch me. I need to know that this means thanks.

  2. I dreamt I was in a constant fight with two really vile men on a bus who kept saying mean things to my mum. The more I fought them the more horrible they got, they would go quiet and then start again. It felt like a never ending battle. In waking life I have often looked after my mum taking on a masculine role of protector (I’m her daughter). Last night in real life I had been talking to her about how I think she should fight back against people wanting to take her house. I said if they don’t play fair I will take them back to court (I previously fought her case in court). I think the dream represents me always stepping into this role but is also telling me it is time to stop and let it go. In real life I have a partner now and I am on the cusp of building my business.

  3. Lol last night I had a dream where me and my friend were walking down the street and a bunch of Dudes wearing clown masks came at us with nailed up baseball bats and then right as the leader approached me, I realized I was dreaming an I looked at my friend and was like “watch this” and I did this thing from naruto called rasengan and exploded that fool and made all the other clowns leave ha ha

  4. I’ve been having dreams of the new guy from my school. He chases and tries to kill me. He wins every time. Now I’m having dreams about people capturing me and I fight back with fighting skills I have never used before. I suddenly can fight back easily enough to protect the things around me in my dream. Tell me what this means.
