What does it mean to see an executions in a dream?

Executions Dream Meaning: From 2 Different Sources


This dream indicates a need to sacrifice a way of being or thinking that no longer serves you. Such a sacrifice is a symbolic movement in the process of change and the evolution of your character. Something needs to die in order for something else to be reborn. In the case of an execution, the impulse to do this is coming out of some perceived wrong, shame, or defect of character.

A particular way of being in the world as represented by the character being executed is no longer necessary.

If it is you who is being executed, then it is your whole sense of identity that is being confronted with drastic change.

If you are doing the executing, then your ego mind is getting ready for some dynamic housecleaning.

If neither of these scenarios is the case, consider what you know about the person being executed. You will find what is currently up for transformation in the character aspect that the individual embodies.

Universal Landscape: Sacrifice of a way of being or thinking that no longer serves you.

Dreaming Lens: Were you witness to an execution? Were you the one being executed? Were you the executioner? What was the method of the kill? Was the execution thorough and completed successfully? Was there fear present?

Personal Focus: Death is always an indicator of the rebirth that inevitably follows. As we execute our undesirables, death by execution adds the elements of purpose or intent. Often, the undesirable qualities within ourselves are what we hold on to the most. The execution of a Character Aspect in a dream indicates that a moment of reckoning has come. A particular way of being in the world as represented by the character being executed is no longer necessary. If it is you who is being executed, then your whole sense of identity is being confronted with drastic change. If you are the executioner, then your ego mind is getting ready for some dynamic housecleaning. If neither of these scenarios is the case, consider what you know about the person being executed. It is in the Character Aspect that they embody where you will find what is currently up for transformation.

Death by gunshot might indicate that the force of change is rapid and deeply penetrating. Hanging might indicate a change in the area of how you communicate since hanging impacts the neck, throat, and voice. Electrocution points to a more organic and neurological alteration of thoughts, as the brain is an electrically run organ. When someone is burned to death, a total transmutation is implied by virtue of bringing the physical body back to the carbon-based material that makes it up. Death by lethal injection or poison may connect to the toxic effect of some life experience or individual surrounding you at the time of the dream.

Whatever your feelings around a dream execution, never forget that as we grow and mature, we must discard old ways of being that no longer serve us. This allows us to take up new paths and fresh ways of being. This ongoing process keeps us in a sort of psychic balance, much as balancing of the scales implies justice in the image of an execution.
