  1. I dreamt that i was getting lab work done. The first blood draw was normal, the blood looked rich and dark. But then the nurse had to reinsert a nee needle and it didn’t work, so she used a smaller butterfly needle and it worked. But as she was drawing my blood into the tube, the blood started looking more clear like water. She asked me if i was tricking her and i showed her my arm and said, “No look this really coming out of me!”

    I had a dream when I was awake in daylight….i went to take a shower blood came from the shower head told my mom she checked it and it was clear then I went to the elevator and blood came from the walls. ( I was wide awake) then later on in the day when I went to bed I feel asleep for an hour and in that hour I dreamed I was in an abandon amusement park and all the rides and games started to have blood come from them and then a lady in white talked to me it sounds like a chant and the blood got thicker. ( this same lady was in a dream I had the night before except in that dream the moon and trees were bleeding) i am not sure what this means so please help me.

  3. I dreamt my mother sent me to gether a blood transfusion were i felt she do waste money. I then informed myself tried themto explain how i was going to get it. Then i saw a free phone number i cant remember were i had to call for buz i have no idea why.

  4. I dreamt that I was visiting family out of state with my mother and that we had to go down this elevator to get to the basement. We went back upstairs, and I, awake in the dream, had a vivid flash of this girl screaming this gutteral scream in my face, while her and I were alone in the elevator going down, and then I would see all of these flashes of blood and death, then nothing, back to normal.

    We then saw my uncle start to bleed from every orifice out of nowhere, and die. This kept happening, horrible vision of the girl screaming in the elevator, bloody deathly visions, then a family member would bleed to death in front of me.

    The hardest one was my grandpa. He was using a walker, was having troubles breathing, and was on his last leg. He started to revert back in age. He was looking like he would have when I was first born (I say would have because I didn’t recognize this man from my real life. In fact the only family member who was real family was my mom, who was next to me for the whole dream, telling me that this wasn’t supernatural until this point). We spent the day together, and I was apprehensive the whole time because I could feel what was coming. I had the vision, and then instead of just bleeding out, he deteriorated as well, like he had aged another 20 years older than he was while bleeding out.

    As a strange sidenote, I was keeping a shoebox in the basement that I kept visiting throughout this dream. At first it had typical basement bugs, and then it attracted flies, roaches, and giant spiders, then snakes and centipedes and locusts. I just kept opening it and inspecting it and then putting it back periodically.

    We found out one of my aunts was performing torturous acts on someone else in the house, very old school medievil things. We saw the aunt die from random loss of blood, but this time my screaming girl vision came with a message. She sort of growled at me that ‘the innocent goes last’.

    I forced myself from this dream by this point. I couldn’t handle much more. I have been looking up blood symbolism in dreams all morning. Almost think I should be looking into hauntings or posession as well.

  5. I dreamed that I was swimming in a large pool then I got out and blood started pouring Al over me and I started freaking out

  6. I dreamed I bled shortly from my nose after flying in an extremely high speed with somebody I can’t recognize.

    I had my eyes open and I was flying in a straight direction between buildings and mountains. The speed was so high that I crossed many countries in just some seconds. At some point I even went through a huge block of water which was like under the ocean, and I was still able to breathe normally without feeling the water choking me. Then we stopped right in the place where we took off and we were surrounded by other comrades which I don’t know in my waking life. And they were like curious to know how was our experience and what we saw. And at that right moment I felt something is dropping from my nose, I touched it, it was blood. I thought it was because of the speed we were flying in. And I also thought “So, that is the feeling of a nosebleed ! ” because in my waking life I have never bled from my nose.

    Can you please help me understand this dream ?

  7. I had a dream that my mom invited President Obama over to our house and he brought his kid (in the dream he had a young white boy for a child) and then suddenly me and the pres and his kid were on the run because we were being chased after and shot at – at first I kept close to the president but then somehow we separated and I think I had to keep his kid safe but everywhere we ran there were people shooting at us and the secret service guys or whoever was there to protect the president (and myself and the kid) were putting all their focus into helping the president and even though I kept getting shot over and over (non-lethal, though), the security guys wouldn’t pay attention to helping me and in the end all three of us escaped alive but everyone was fawning over the president to make sure he was okay and I said to them “guys, im starting to bleed out, I really need to get to the hospital” and in the last scene of the dream I think I eventually made it to the hospital and did not die.
