Few dreams are more terrifying than getting shot or killed in a dream. When you have a dream about being shot in the head, it can cause you to wake up in a cold sweat and shaking. Many people are afraid that having this type of dream means that they will actually get shot in real life. Luckily, this dream rarely, if ever, predicts the future. Instead, it shows what is going on within your own subconscious mind.

Dream About Being Shot in the Head

Dreams are the reflection of what is going on in your subconscious mind. They show your thoughts, ears and desires in your waking life. When you have a dream about being shot in the head, it only shows what is going on in your waking life and your subconscious feelings. Because of this, it is important to look at each aspect of the dream to interpret the overall meaning. The people, situation, feelings and location in your dream can help you figure out exactly what your dream actually means.

The Shooting Aspect of the Dream

No matter where you are shot in the dream, this kind of action has a general interpretation. When you dream about getting shot, it shows that you do not have a good opinion of yourself or your abilities. You may feel ashamed of actions you have taken in the past or doubtful about your own abilities in the future.

If you get shot in the dream and return as someone else, it shows that you need a new outlook on life. You changed to someone else in the dream because you need to have a new approach in life if you want to get what you want out of life.

The Head Aspect of the Dream

Meanwhile, the head represents your feelings, thoughts and actions in life. Your head is a representation of how you view yourself, your identity, your abilities and the world at large. If someone is injuring your head in the dream, it may mean that you are not thinking clearly about your waking life. You may be in denial about what is going on, so the root of your thoughts is being attacked in the dream. You have to face your fears and be willing to take chances in your waking life, or this dream will keep returning to you.

Guns

In dreams, a gun is a representation of strength and dominance. If only the gunman in your dream has a weapon, it may mean that you feel like other people hold the power in your waking life. If you cannot see who the gunman is in your dream, it may show that you are hurt by things that people do behind the scenes. You may not know who is harming you in your waking life because they gossip behind your back or invisibly pull the strings. Even if you try to run away in the dream, your safety is still at risk because of the gun. In real life, you may feel like it is impossible to defend yourself. All of your attempts to keep yourself safe only put you at risk like you are in the dream.

A Sense of Rejection

Sometimes, dreams about being shot also symbolize a sense of rejection. You may feel like a certain part of your personality or past is not serving you anymore. You are shot in the dream because you want to reject that aspect of yourself. Because you are shot in the head, your rejection will typically have something to do with your beliefs, goals or personality.

Other Dream Interpretations

Guns also indicate a fight for survival. If you are shot by a group of gunmen, it may mean that you are overwhelmed in your day-to-day life. You may feel like many people are united and working against you, and you feel powerless to stop them. You may be frustrated as you try to work toward your goals because it seems like everyone is against you.

According to some dream interpreters, dreams about being shot in the head shows that you are struggling to make your own decisions in life. You may feel unable to take control of your future because other people hold the power. They make decisions for you, and you are only able to go along for the ride. You may know what you want out of life, but you do not have the authority or ability to choose your own course in life.

If you are unharmed in the dream, it shows that these attackers and negative influences cannot actually harm you in your waking life. If you are actually harmed or killed in the dream, then it shows that you feel harmed and unable to fight back in your waking life.

  1. I dreamt that I (though it wasn’t actually me) was sat on a bench and I was talking to some women about who I would marry because I was unsure as I liked them all and so on. We’re royal and there was a young royal girl with us too. Then a royal who was not next in line but slightly further down came to view and shot at us. We ran around a corner but he caught up and tried to shoot the child. I protected the child but he dealt with that by grabbing me and shooting me in the temple and then shot the child. I remember feeling the bullet go through into my head and my brain seemed to go light and fuzzy before cutting off and I can’t explain it but I couldn’t feel anything. I then (As me the dreamer) thought “shit I need to switch character” and moved onto a woman who was running and I saw the rest of the dream play out but that’s the whole part of that woman. I’m very confused about it and I can’t stop thinking about how the lack of everything felt I can’t explain what I felt properly because I can’t seem to comprehend it but whatever here it is. Pls help n tell me what it means

  2. I dreamed I was in a heated argument with my brother whom I no longer speak with. He became angry that I had not shared my life’s fortune with him, which really seems like him, pulled out a revolver and shot me in the right upper quadrant of my head. My sister who was also there screamed, exchanged words with my brother and then they both left me. I remember thinking that my brother sat at my right hand, literally and figuratively, my whole life and I always treated him well, and it still wasn’t enough, he still was jealous and envious of me, to the point of murdering me.

    • Your dream is a reflection of the relationship that you no longer share with your brother.

  6. I have the most vivid dream last night. My parents had been visiting and were heading back home so after dropping them off at the airport I drove back home to pick up my husband, two children and a friend as we had made plans. While we were driving there was chaos cars going in all directions, I noticed police cornering off an area there were six men fighting holding weapons. People running screaming, building behind us was destroyed; my husband told me to get out and sit in the back with the children while that happened we must’ve been hit by a bullet as we got a flat tyre. A police officer coming over asking us to leave immediately as the men were walking around shooting all that witnessed the event was shot. It was too late the two men shot a girl running from the scene of the event they came over to our car and proceeded to kill everyone infront of me then shot me point blank in the head. I blacked out then woke up in tears and I couldn’t feel anything in my left leg.

  8. I had a dream, I was shot in the back of my skull. I was sitting and talking to some guy outside an cafe then 4 young men approach us asking something. I answered quite firmly and said no we don’t. I cannot remember what he ask but in the dream I knew I had whatever he asked and the guy whom sat across me stared at me and said nothing. So I stood up and started to walk. The minute I walked leaving the gentleman behind, the young man starts shooting and whilst he shooting I drop to the floor and acted like I was shot, he approached me and shot me in the head whilst my face is facing the ground. I tasted blood running through my throat when the bullet wen through my skull. I appeared at my parents house asking them to take me to the hospital. My dad responded and said I would only be wasting my time I should stay home for I will be waiting to get help at the hospital. My mum came over looked at wound in my head and she said the same thing I can just stay at home for I wont get any assistance. I wanted to argue and be like they will assist me I was shot in the head. I had to take myself to the hospital.

  9. I had a dream where I was sitting on the floor of a generic supermarket and was amongst other strangers who were doing the same. I felt like I was trapped and there was something keeping me from getting out of the building. The dream then jumps to me being in a large coach with a tub of water on my lap and half of a small wooden frame in my left hand. There were others sitting on the coach who also had the same items. The moment I inexplicably dipped the whole frame into the water, a man with a large gun walked through the middle of the coach and pointed the gun at me telling me not to make the frame too wet. He walked away but out of confusion I dipped half of the frame into the water. This time the same man took me out of the coach a long with another man. The man with the gun said that he had enough and shot the man first but there was no sound of a gunshot. I turned away from the man with the gun in an attempt to run but as soon as I turn, I hear no gunshot but it felt like I was shot from the back of the head as I felt light headed and was unable to control my body as I fell face first onto the side of the road.

  10. I had a dream that I was at some event with a lot of people. It was a fancy event. There were some people I knew and some people I didn’t know there. Someone came up to me and said “hey you’re bleeding from your head” I looked in the mirror and saw a hole on the right side of my temple, the hole was the size of my index finger I could actually see inside the hole, however, I didn’t feel the pain. I looked at my hands which had blood on it as well as dry blood on the side of my face. I realized I was shot and thought it was from a stray bullet but I could not figure out where the person could be or the time the shot went off. I was confused but in a panic. Someone walked me out to take me to the hospital and as I was walking the pain started and it became worse and worse as we got to the car. I was trying to tell myself not to freak out but I cried and panicked once we got to the car. I woke up scared and sweating after that.

  11. I dreamed I opened my front door and someone shot me in my temple. This happened 2 days ago an I can still feel a pain in my temple. It’s really scared me..

    • This type of dream may reflect something that you recently watched or read. It may also show a fear that an outside force or some uncontrollable part of life could intrude on you and cause you harm. This type of fear is quite normal to have, but it is a terrifying experience to go through. Thankfully, it only represents your subconscious thoughts and not what will actually happen in real life.

  12. I was on looking some type of fight inside a facility that involved guns. We were able to use the same weapons. We thought we couldn’t be seen or shot at (20+ more people with me) they all run felt so bad. Told them to leave me. Didnt want them to watch me die a horrible death (lungs would eventually stop working due to high tech guns).
    Shortly after the fight inside this facility was done some guy came out and asked for everyone. Said i told them to run away and get away from me. That i got shot. Asked if drs could help her because i wanted to become a nurse there. They said no my lungs would stop working. Nothing could be done. By this time the group shows up. I was like cam i shoot myself in the head with your gun please. Since i didn’t know how to work the damn thing the guy said let me do the honors. I reach out for a hand. The guy beside me puts his hand on the barrel and my head said hold on. I held on. Watched the guy shoot me. What he probably felt (bad but sparing my suffering) and myself adrenaline. Woke up right away went to this website

    • This might just reflect on anxiety you feel in your waking life, or it could be due to some type of movie that you have been watching recently. Often, this type of dream shows a fear of the outside world or of all the things that you cannot control in life. Thankfully, it only reflects the state of your subconscious mind and not what will happen in real life, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it. Good luck, Tawnya!

  13. I had a dream that I was chosen by a group of people. We were all sent out into this glass room connecting two buildings. I was shot first, once in the back of the head then in the legs by a stranger then two other people were shot. The other two people who were not shot were selected to participate in something. I ended up dying kinda painfully then somehow came back to life. I tried to go save my brothers and sister. I had to tell my sister that I was dead, but explain that I was still kinda alive. Then together we went and tried to save our brothers from the gunmen without the gunmen realizing that I was alive and that I understood what was happening and was trying to save my brothers.

  14. I had a dream where I had killed at least 4 other people, though the reason is unknown. After killing these people, I ran away and ended in a house where the relatives of the victims where staying at. Then, I closed myself in a room where I held a machete for protection. There I slashed two more victims. Somehow, my brother appeared along with two other children, and while I knew I was going to die, I told him to go to a corner and cover himself so he wouldn’t see me be killed. The relatives started banging on the door. So I was trying to hold back the vengeful relatives, but they got through and I got shot in the head. As I died, I heard my brother crying and calling my name out.

  17. Dreamt of being shot in the head and living. Looking for someone to accompany to hospital without them knowing I have a gunshot wound in the head and not bleeding. I was trying to conceal the wounds using my hair. I was sure there’s an entry wound at the right side of my forehead and the exit wound at the left. I wasn’t bleeding. It didn’t hurt. I was actually going on with my daily activities at work. Laughing. Speaking tp colleagues and friends. Woke up when I found someone (a very dear friend) to drop me off at the nearest supermarket which is very near to a hospital.

I fell and I saw a shadowey man holding a gun and I heard my little boy screaming. I couldn’t protect him. I shouted to my other older son in the front room to run -but no sound was coming out.
