Hurt – To dream of being emotionally hurt is a simple and straightforward symbol indicating an emotion you also have in your waking life, but which you may be ignoring or avoiding because of complex factors involved in the emotion or the relationship. To dream of feeling physically hurt is rarer, and actually feeling physical pain in your dream is almost certainly an indication that your physical body is in pain and you have simply not woken up yet.
This is actually why people pinch themselves to find out whether they are dreaming – if you are dreaming and you pinch yourself, you are probably not going to feel pain. Therefore if you pinch yourself and you do not feel the hurt, you know you are dreaming and can launch into a lucid dream.
