What Does It Mean When You Dream of Getting Shot by a Bullet and Didn’t Die?

Being shot by a bullet is terrifying. Often, you wake up immediately after you die in a dream. In some cases, you do not always die from the bullet. Instead, you are forced to keep fighting through your injury or have to run away from the assailant. When you are finally able to wake up, you are left wondering what the bullet and your survival mean about your subconscious mind.

From what scientists and researchers can tell, dreams are a reflection of the subconscious mind. They include the thoughts, feelings and desires that you experience in your waking life. Because of this, each aspect of your dream may represent something unique about your waking world. It may show your desires, fears or current problems.

When it comes to being shot in a dream, the emotions involved are normally fear, anger and confusion. At the root of this dream is a sense of being victimized. You are being hurt at the hands of someone else, and the other person has an advantage. Their gun means that you are at risk as you run away or try to fight.

In a dream, a gun typically represents a sense of dominance or strength. It may also represent a fight for desire. Depending on your own experiences, a gun could also signify social status, a certain lifestyle or a career. Often, a gun represents a speedy response and defense. The true interpretation of this depends on the number of gunmen, the kind of gun and how serious the fight is.

If you are shot by a gunman that you cannot see, it generally means that you feel stricken or hurt by the words that other people say. Perhaps someone is gossiping behind your back and causing problems in your waking life. If you dream that you shoot someone else, it could mean that you are rejecting that person or an aspect of yourself. They may represent a certain feeling or attitude in your waking life. You shoot them in the dream because you want to reject that feeling within yourself.

When someone shoots you in the dream, it can also mean that you are trying to reject a certain part of yourself. Even the most emotionally balanced individuals have feelings or traits that they dislike within their mind. Being shot in the dream could mean that you are trying to reject that aspect of yourself. To figure out the trait that you are trying to reject, look at the type of person who is the gunmen. Do they represent a certain feeling or experience to you? If so, your mind may be trying to reject that thought or experience within yourself.

Bullets, Guns and More Interpretations

According to some dream interpreters, watching a bullet get shot in your dream means that there is a situation of hardship in your real life. You may feel attacked or you may feel like there is a significant level of competition in the real world. There may be other people making decisions in your life that you have no power over. You feel like your only option is to get shot because you cannot take control and determine your own future. Because of this, the dream may mean that you are in a situation where you lack the authority or power to make your own choices.

The good news is that you were not harmed in the dream. This means that those individuals are not able to harm you in real life. While you feel attacked and powerless, you are ultimately unaffected by those individuals. You are still injured, but you have some power to take control and achieve your aims.

On its own, a gun generally shows a fight for survival. If you are being shot at by gang members, then it shows that you feel overwhelmed in your real life. You feel like everyone is united against you, and you are the minority struggling to make your case. This may show some of your major fears and frustrations.

If you are in a natural environment or at home, it typically shows your fight over familiar territory. It means that it is most likely a home, family or friend-related situation that is making you upset. In an urban environment or city, the same actions show a fight for survival for your social status, career position or financial status.

If you are hunting in the dream and get shot, it shows a fight for survival. Hunting an animal shows that you are trying to survive and be self-reliant. If you are shot during your hunt, it shows that you feel unable to survive on your own. As hard as you work, it seems impossible to keep your head above water.

Dream of Getting Shot in the Head

Your mind is revealing concerns and worries that influence your actions in your waking life. The sights, sounds, tastes, smells, and many physical sensations interact with the sensory organs of our head. Your ideas and emotions appear in your mind as thoughts. Each of these aspects of your life may be represented by your head. When you dream of getting shot in the head, it is an indication that there may be a stressful or frustrating influence that is having an impact in your life.

You may find that a specific wound becomes apparent in your dream. If you were shot in the eye, then there may have been a recent sight or vision that made you feel uncomfortable or worried. Harmful or loud conversations could cause you feel as though your ears we damaged. Smelling or tasting blood could be an indication of events that occurred in the past. Many people felt the blood pulsing or streaming out of the bullet hole, which could be a sign of a physically stressful interaction.

Some dreams immediately end after being shot in the end, which may mean that there was a conclusion what occurred during your waking life. A fatal wound that continues throughout your dream could indicate what is causing the stress which remains in your mind.

Dream of Being Shot in the Chest

Our body, especially our chest, is often a reflection of the way that we interact with the world. Like our brain, our heart and lungs are of vital importance. The organs in our chest give our body vitality and power, which may be an indication of the purpose behind the dream. When you dream of being shot in the chest, it may be a sign that you feel drained or weakened from something in your life.

The wound in your chest can be best understood by how it affects the rest of your dream. If you feel like you are winded or short of breath, then there may be a passive or constant pressure that you are dealing with. If you feel weak or heavy, then something powerful or dominant in your life may be causing you to feel crushed. You may feel tired or empty, and this may be a sign that a requirement in your life is leaving you drained.

You behaviors in your dream are indications of the manner in which you overcome the concerns in your life. Hospitals or doctors may be a sign that you address concerns in your life when they arise. If you continue your mission within your dream, then you likely focus on your goals rather than the stresses in your life.

Dream of Getting Shot in the Back

The back is often used to indicate betrayal and treachery. If you dream of getting shot in the back, then it is possible that you are having problems with a social or familial relationship. You may have had a relationship end, been lied to, or abandoned. Feelings of distrust or paranoia may appear in these dreams as well. There may be a struggle that you are experiencing that is caused by an unknown source.

Other people in your dream could give you insight as to the purpose or meaning behind the images. If there are numerous people in your dream, then you may be confused about who is causing you concerns. There may be others who are there to help you, and their actions could be indications of their support during your waking life.

These dreams should lead you to make a decision about your life. There could be something in your life that you are not understanding, and this uncertainty may be appearing in your dream. Look into your dream for clues or insights. This may be a sign that something in your like is being overlooked or hidden from you. Speak with your friends and your family about any questions that you may have at this time.

Dream of Being Shot Multiple Times

Multiplicity may appear in a dream to signify numerous influences in your life which may be causing your stress and concerns. Numerous social relationships or repetitive interactions could be indicated by a dream like this. When you dream of being shot multiple times, you should look back on the experiences that you have had recently.

Various people, media, and memories could be causing you to feel overwhelmed. These dreams could also reveal a history of similar relationships or thoughts. There may be a social group or class of individuals that are making you feel pressure or stress. You may have recently consumed various media, such as horror or action movies. These dreams may leave you feeling like you are isolated or singled out.

The dream will bring you insight into what is causing you to feel concerned with your life. If there are a group of people, then attempt to understand what similarities that they have. There may be a connection that will help to better understand the purpose of the dream. Strengthen your relationships with your friends and family members, as this will help you feel supported in your waking life. Reduce the amount of interactions that you have with people who you do not trust or who make you feel uncertain.

Getting Shot in a Dream and Feeling the Pain

During your waking life, pain is an indication that you are being harmed or that something needs to be addressed. In a dream, you may find that you feel these sensations. Getting shot in a dream and feeling the pain is an indication of a strong mental connection with the experiences in this dream. It may mean that there is something that needs to be addressed as soon as possible.

These dreams are often extremely vivid in other ways as well, so you may be someone who has lucid dreams or simply remembers your dreams very well. There may have been a particularly biting interaction that you had recently. Perhaps something in your life was extremely powerful, such as a frightening interaction or sudden loss.

When you have dreams where the pain is felt, you should take time to understand what may have caused this dream to appear in the first place. When you are awake, ensure that you address what is causing you to be fearful or in pain. Remove the stress from your life, or address it in a manner that will reduce its influence on your thoughts and feelings. It is certain that there are benefits to be gained by changing what you allow into your life.

  9. I just had a dream that I was on a dark street in a group with several other guys who I recognized in the dream but don’t know in real life. There was also a younger boy with the group. A blue BMW drove through the area, made an aggressive U-turn, and started spraying at us. We all ducked down, and I did as well, but was a little more exposed than the rest of the group because I went to try to cover the young boy. No one was shot once the smoke cleared, but I felt a slight throbbing in my heart & throat area. Once we started walking again, I realized I had been shot in my lower back. Oddly enough though, there were no holes in my shirt or skin. On my back, there appeared several discolored (lighter-colored) holes but no wounds (it had the appearance of a target practice sheet on my back). On my lower left back, I could feel the bullet lodged and slightly protruding. There was never any blood, but the pain got worse with time (as did that throbbing in my heart/throat region) and I was walking around the city trying to get to a hospital by myself.

  12. I had a dream that I was leaving my local court house and when I came around the corner I saw people dead, people moaning, and people getting shot at. I was behind the shooters that was on a 6 foot ledge both shooters was on one knee. I walked up and I laid down on the ground on my back and played dead. Little later for some unknown reason to me one shooters caught on fire and he jumped down and ran around the corner and after the other one did to, with what looked like a shotgun as he walked past me, looking at me he shot me in my left leg above my knee (I did witness a drive by same location where he was shot at apparently) then again in my lower left side stumic, upper right chest and 3-4 times right behind my collar bone next to my neck. I was able to feel every shot. When he went around the corner I got up and a lady dressed nice like an lawyer helped me up and walked to the hospital where I was treated and was released. They were asking me what questions like what happened and I was fully aware and was able to answer all of there questions. I was able to recall they where two white me apparently 22-25 years of age with jackets on one with shoulder length curly hair that was brown and the other short blonde hair.
