(For: knives, violence)
I have a recurring dream where my hand gets either stabbed or sliced. The pain is just terrible and searing. When I wake up I can still feel it.
Earlier this week I had a dream that I was climbing some stairs and a woman was mad at me. She threw a knife and it stabbed through my hand and into the railing. I grabbed the knife and rocked it back and forth to loosen it out of the wood so that I could pull it out. I can still feel what it felt like.
Usually it is a knife in these dreams. Once it was a triangle shaped rounded blade (like a guitar pick) that a man said was ceremonial and the cut happened after I tried to save some children that he was keeping captive for a ritual.
Is the recurrent nature of this dream symbolic or literal? I guess I won't know until my memories return.
Does anyone out there with DID or DDNOS have similar recurring dreams? What are your thoughts about them?
