Universal Landscape: Area of vulnerability; evidence of past hurts.

Dreaming Lens: What type of wound did you sustain? Was it bleeding? Was your life in danger? How old was the wound? Was it in the process of healing? Were you in pain? What caused the wound? Who caused the wound?

Personal Focus: A wound is an indication that something dramatic and dangerous has already occurred. It is not only evidence of the event itself; it is also the residual damage that the wounding event may have left you vulnerable to. While wounds to the body are physical in nature, they can symbolically represent emotional, psychological, and spiritual wounds as well.

The most important thing to consider about a wound in a dream is the state that it has left you in. The greater the risk, the higher the stakes of the life situation the dream is expressing. The presence of infection may be revealing that an old hurt left unattended is festering and causing you pain and discomfort. Anything that results in the loss of blood relates to passion and life force being leaked out or dissipated.

Where on the body you are wounded will also have meaning. Injuries to the feet connect to the direction your life is moving in. If your legs are affected, your ability to move forward may be what is suffering. The belly area relates to instincts and feelings about things that are occurring. The area around the chest points to matters of the heart. The arms are where strength and our sense of capability lie, while the hands are about creativity and skill. Anything that involves the throat may be indicating issues around communication. The face is about the persona and social identity and may also reflect issues of attractiveness and self-esteem. The head is the home of the intellect and if this is wounded, there may be challenges to your ideas and thoughts coming up. Wherever you are wounded, consider the behaviors and actions that might be hindered and add that information to your interpretation. (See also Blood, Cuts/Cutting.)... wound(s) dream meaning
