Rape Dream Meaning: From 28 Different Sources


(1) In a woman’s dream, rape may represent cither (unconscious) fears of sex or (masochistic) fantasies of being raped.

(2) A man’s dream of committing rape would probably be a straightforward symbol of sexual desire, but of a sadistic kind. You probably need to become acquainted with your own feminine qualities - ability to relate, patience, gentleness, etc. - and let them play a larger part in your life. What arc you trying to take vengeance for? Did your mother seem to withdraw her love from you as a boy?

A Dictionary of Dream Symbols | Eric Ackroyd

Example: \ tried to turn but my legs were like lead.

The man caught me and I fought. He tried to rape me but couldn’t do it. As I talked to him I began to feel sorry for him and not frightened. I realised that inside he was a nice person. In the end I found I liked him so much I began to kiss him myself (Mrs JB). Rape in dreams is very different from rape in real life, as we create our own dream, so why introduce rape? Perhaps in the above example Mrs JB discovers her own power in the situation as she realises the weakness of the male.

Example: A man is trying to make love and at the last moment I repel him as I know it will cause a pregnancy. When I was about 10 I was raped and for many years had a fear of men’ (Anon.). This is the other side of rape. Rape in this dream may be memories, the effects of which are still visible in the life of this dreamer, causing her difficulties in warm sexuality.

Example: The devil attacked a woman. He was invisible.

The woman turned black as he raped her. She didn’t die. At this point I woke and went to the toiler. On returning to bed I continued the dream, particularly wondenng what I was in conflict with in the image of the devil. I found it disturbinr and frightening to be confronted by such a powerful oppo­nent. Partly because of the rape, I realised it was repressed sexuality. I then approached the “black” woman with tender­ness and this transformed the devil into available sexual or emotional energy. I tried this again and again. Each time it worked, and I could observe the devil was my sexual warmth and love which had become negative through restraint’ (Neil V). In this male dream, it is the conflict with his sexuality which causes the devilish’ rape. When he can find tender­ness, the negative aspect disappears. Rape also depicts the real evil of another person disregarding our personal needs and feelings, abusing not only the body, but particularly the ‘person’. Being raped by someone known: feeling anxious about sex with them, fighting off desire for them.

To dream of being sexually assaulted is indicative of a demonically induced nightmare

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

Rape in a dream is a positive symbol even though the association with it is very negative because of its abhorrent nature from waking life. Sex is ultimately about integration and the bringing together of aspects of personality. This is true in the world of symbolism even when the act is forceful and violent. Because rape is an act of violence, this, combined with the absence of consent, puts a very different spin on how to interpret it if it should appear in a dream. When a dream includes something as heinous as rape, it is important to remind yourself that dreams are symbolic, not literal. Rape in a dream is not like rape in life. It simply means that the integration that is occurring within your psyche is being experienced as so abrupt and potentially frightening that the symbolic expression of it appears dramatically.

The unconscious will often use nightmares and frightening dreams to get our attention.

If you were raped in the dream, consider the rapist.

If the person was known to you, then use that individual as a character aspect to see what part of your own personality is demanding to be dealt with.

If the person was not known to you, then consider the dream a precursor to a powerful shift that is going on under the surface and is not yet clear.

If you cannot glean more helpful insight from this dream, trust that future dreams will inform you of whatever shift is taking place.

If you witnessed a rape, you must look inward to see what aspects of your personality are at odds with one another, for they ultimately need to be integrated and made whole.

The rapist would be the part of you that is demanding to be recognized, and the victim is the part of you that needs to accept the merging, but may be in resistance to the process.

If you were the rapist in your dream, consider the victim as a character aspect that represents the part of you that you wish to subdue. Rape fantasies are common for many people and can be quite erotic and satisfying when handled in an appropriate manner.

If the dream of rape was erotic in nature, the meaning is the same, but the integration that is taking place has much lower stakes and may in fact be a source of pleasurable anticipation.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

1. Defilement;

2. Violating your boundaries in a way that gives them pleasure;

3. Abusive control that gratifies the flesh;

4. Someone forcing you to reproduce against your will.

5. A defiling impartation;

6. Forced intimacy interaction that violates your boundaries.

7. Can be a memory or reliving the trauma of abuse.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Any image of rape appearing in dreams can be as much to do with violation of personal space as with the sexual act. Rape may only appear as an image when we as adults are ready to deal with trauma of any kind.

Dream Meanings of Versatile | Versatile - Anonymous

Universal Landscape: Integration of the aspects of personality through violent, forceful means.

Dreaming Lens: Were you being raped in a dream? Were you witnessing a rape? Were you aware of who the rapist was? Were you the rapist? Was the rape a violent act, or was it an erotic pseudo-rape?

Personal Focus: Although it is conceivable that in the waking world, a woman could rape a man, the notion of rape as a symbol connects to the masculine principle. Women will sometimes dream of being the aggressor in sexual situations and may even have a penis in their dream, or perceive themselves as having one. Because the act of rape is sexual in structure, the symbolic meaning must reflect the same theme as sex that is consensual, which is the coming together or integration of different Character Aspects of the personality. However, rape is an act of violence and when this is combined with the absence of consent, it puts a very different spin on how to interpret it if it should appear in a dream.

When a dream includes something as heinous as rape, it is important to remind yourself—whether you are male or female—that dreams are symbolic, not literal. Rape in a dream is not like rape in life. It simply means that the integration that is occurring within your psyche is being experienced as so abrupt and potentially frightening that the symbolic expression of it appears dramatically. The unconscious will often use nightmares and frightening dreams to get our attention.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

To dream that rape has been committed among your acquaintances, denotes that you will be shocked at the distress of some of your friends.

For a young woman to dream that she has been the victim of rape, foretells that she will have troubles, which will wound her pride, and her lover will be estranged.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

Dreaming about being raped is a nightmare that inflicts fear and anxiety upon recall. Since rape is a brutal and deeply personal violation, it suggests that the dreamer may be feeling robbed of options and negated as a human being. In a dream, as in real life, rape have very little to do with sex.

It is about power, control, anger, and other very destructive emotions. In order to understand this dream, you may need to think about the areas of your life that causes you great anxiety and fear.

If you are superstitious, take this dream as a warning. Take precautions, protect yourself emotionally and physically and don’t engage in careless behaviors.

If you were a rape victim, the traumatic nature of this experience may cause you to have a dream like this from time to time.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

Dreaming of rape symbolizes the loss of control over your reality. You are living in a situation in which you own love seems damaged. For a man, it could be a sadistic representation of his sexual desires.

It is possible that you harbor feelings of vengeance towards the opposite sex. For a woman, it could represent sexual fears or the manifestation of masochistic fantasies.

Even Victorian books about dreams contemplate this image. According to superstition, if a woman dreams of rape, her pride will be damaged. In the case that it is a close friend who suffers, it is saying that you will hear impactful news.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

To dream of committing or witnessing a rape prophesies a period of business and mental depression.

Whatever form it took in your dream, this act is a warning to avoid loose companions or careless behavior that could seriously damage your reputation by giving a false impression to those whose opinions are important to your welfare.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

You are losing energy, allowing someone’s negative influence to take your power and self-esteem. Has no sexual meaning; do not take it literally. Simply indicates you are getting ripped off.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

A dream of rape can be incredibly disturbing and you are unlikely to want to dwell on it, but it might be worth your while to ask yourself why your dreaming mind would put you through such an ordeal.

If you have been a victim of sexual violence, then your dream may have been trying to resolve your feelings about the trauma.

If this isn’t the case, however, your dream may have been warning you about a predatory person in your life or warning you about someone in your life who is forcing you to do something against your will.

Whether you are raped by a person of the same or the opposite sex in your dream, the images reinforce your feelings of powerlessness and shame at having to bend to (non-sexual) demands in waking life. Your dreaming mind may have sent you this shocking image to encourage you to assert yourself and fight back.

If you are raping someone else in your dream, this expresses your desire to humiliate or put someone in their place in waking life.

If you witnessed someone else being raped in your dream but could not or would not prevent it, the message is again one of powerlessness and your feelings of frustration at being unable to right a wrong in waking life, or protect someone who is vulnerable. See also NIGHTMARES; SEX.

(Num 13:24) • Grapes are only as good as the soil they are grown in. If the soil is good, then the fruit will be good as well. • To dream of ripe grapes means that your spiritual life is in order and that the fruit of your spirit is good. • It also means that your feet are planted in the right place now and that the Lord is going to bless you in this land that He has given you. This can speak of your ministry or of your business and financial land. Negative: On the other hand, sour grapes have a number of meanings. Firstly it means that what is coming out of you is not pleasant. • It means that the land that you are in right now (be it spiritual or natural) is not right and it is producing sour grapes. • Jeremiah 31:30 But every one will die for his own iniquity: every man that eats the sour grape, his teeth will be set on edge. • Although you were expecting prosperity or blessing, you are getting quite the opposite. • This is a warning dream or vision and the Lord is telling you that where you are right now in your spiritual life is not good.

The Dream Books Symbols

Grapes

Grapes are a great symbol of wealth and prosperity not only because they are a fruit that requires an enormous amount of cultivation to produce, but because from them is made wine, one of the oldest riches of Earth’s bounty.

My Dream Interpretation

Skyscraper

This image indicates expansion to higher levels of conscious awareness. Any building is a reflection of the consciousness of human beings. If a house in a dream symbolizes your personal sense of self, each successively larger building can be thought of as an expansion of this consciousness. In this way, a skyscraper is the ultimate expression of human consciousness, reaching from the ground to the heavens. The skyscraper is also a very American icon and is directly connected to the explosion of urbanization that marked the movement into the current modern era. When steel began to be mass-produced, it paved the way for the bustling city environment to push upward. This ascension then is symbolic of the consciousness of humankind erupting toward higher levels of awareness and intellectual functioning. ... skyscraper dream meaning

Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Skyscraper

Universal Landscape: Expansion to higher levels of conscious awareness. Dreaming Lens: How tall was the skyscraper in your dream? What was the building made of? Were you inside or outside of the skyscraper? What floor were you on? Were you on the roof? How far could you see?Personal Focus: Any building is a reflection of the consciousness of human beings. If a house in a dream symbolizes your sense of personal self, each successively larger building can be thought of as expansions of this consciousness. In this way, a skyscraper is the ultimate expression of human consciousness reaching from the ground to the heavens. The skyscraper is also a very American icon and is directly connected to the explosion of urbanization that marked the movement into the current modern era. When steel began to be mass-produced, it paved the way for the bustling city environment to push upwards. This ascension, then, is symbolic for the consciousness of mankind erupting toward higher levels of awareness and intellectual functioning. There is an interesting linguistic nuance in the meaning of the skyscraper as a symbol. A tall building is understood in terms of just how tall it is. And every floor is also commonly known as a “story. ” The taller a building is, the more “stories” it has: the higher into consciousness one gets, the more life-stories are required to unfold in order to gain the wisdom reflected in the high vantage point that a skyscraper has to offer. Consider your relationship to the skyscraper in your dream. If you are inside the building, then your dream is reflecting a deeper rumination of thoughts. Being outside and looking up at the building is to be contemplating thoughts you have yet to grapple with. If you are enjoying the view from someplace high in the building, then the dream is connected to the awareness that results from higher levels of thought. If the height is frightening or menacing, then the dream may be expressing fears and overwhelm around too much thinking. ... skyscraper dream meaning
