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.

  3. I had a dream that me and my boyfriend had traveled to a new city, we gathered in the town center where they were having a meeting, after the speech we moved to a circle of chairs. There were friends I knew from the past, my boyfriend was next to me, there were policemen from the city, and there was my chemistry teacher. My teacher pulled out a gun and started to fire at random, the trick was not to get shot before the ammo runs out. Many people were getting shot, I tried to dodge a bullet being shot at me and I got shot right in my head, I jumped up in fear and ran to get my stuff, I was not harmed just felt weak and blood was pouring down my head and my hair was matted. Then I woke up.

  4. I had a dream that three men had access to my car. I have never seen any of them in my life. They would just kind of hangout in my car and I would always find the chance to see them leave and I would try to lock the car back but minutes later they are back inside. The 3rd time I come back, it’s just one guy with the doors open, back seat put down,and he’s just laying in my car. I remember saying “f*** this” and I pull out my phone to call 911, but then he gets upset and comes after me pulling out a gun and aiming it at me. I attempt to calm him down and I put my phone down. Suddenly a random guy punches the man with the gun in the face. Then for some reason there’s a gun on the floor and I pick it up to try and shoot the man before he shoots me….but he shoots me first like in the head behind my ear. I don’t wake up immediately. I fall on the floor and I could feel the blood draining out of my head as I lay there. About 30 seconds or something after I wake up I could feel as if something is coming out of my head like the pressure I felt as the blood drained from my head at the exact spot in the dream but nothing is there.

  6. I had a dream that I got shot in the head three times by a woman ( I can’t remember if it was my fed girlfriend or sister who was close to me in my real life) I but survived and was crawling outside to wait for the police because I managed to hide my phone under the couch I was laying beside on the ground while they were looking at my dying body. No matter how many times they attempted to shoot me I kept alive and fought for my life, they left me for dead on the ground and left me on the floor while they went out to the store to grab “things” and as they were out I mananged to crawl outside and wait becsuse I was able to grab my phone I hid under the couch and text my “girlfriend” (which gets confusing because I thought it was her or my sister who shot me, the character changes sometimes which I don’t understand why) thing is, my girlfriend called me and decided to end our real life relationship last night which we both agreed upon was fair.

  7. I had a dream that my boyfriend shot me twice in the belly but the bullets crossed and stay in my back near my spine.. The pain felt real and when I touched the bullets in my dream , it was like they were really there. I remember my dream as clear as day. We were in the comfort of the home I share with my 2 sisters but they weren’t around when I was shot. He told me not to tell my mom and I didn’t but when I mustered up some courage to finally tell her my dream was cut short by a phone call

  12. First of all it’s been years since I could last remember any dream. Last night I spent the night with someone I love more than life itself. Rose petals EVERYWHERE, candles EVERYWHERE, hot bath, wine, good music, etc. After she fell asleep I stayed awake for a couple of hours and watched some TV (Live PD). At any rate, once I went to bed I woke up just a couple of hours later after I dreamt that someone in a tinted out SUV hit or crashed hard in to someone I know (not sure who though) and I began to chase this SUV with my vehicle. I was able to hit this truck pretty hard and next thing I know my passenger window is up against the SUVs driver side window. Thinking something bad was going to happen, I pull my handgun from my waist. No sooner do I do that, as i look back over a bright light and glass explodes everywhere. I was shot in the right side of my face. Ears ringing, dazed, slowly going out, and could feel blood dripping (distinctly) from my head, off my nose, through my beard, etc. However, I mustered enough energy, as the SUV sped off, to fire quite a few shots back and once the SUV windows shattered I could see I hit whoever was driving but they still got away from the scene. Once I got back to whoever had been hit earlier by this SUV I started shouting it’s OK because I hit him, I shot him back and he’ll need medical attention… then I woke up sweating my ass off in a panic.

    • The romantic aspects of your dream are likely indications of your thoughts regarding social and emotional relationships.

    i don’t know what was that mean…

    • Dreams of being shot are often reflection of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. The person who accused you may be someone who makes you feel uncomfortable or insecure. Allow the negative aspects of this dream to fade. Share your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life, and abstain from consuming violent and dramatic media. Have a great day, Mhadz!

  14. I had a dream recently about getting shot in back of my head three times. I felt the bullets hit my head and the blood rushing out. My hair is all sticky with blood but I do not die instead I am walking around. Then i go to a restaurant where my parents are sitting (my dad recently passed away) and it seems like he is letting go and dying and i tell him not to. Everybody is saying why i am not dying (i do not know who these everybody are ) then someone (dont know who) say lets shoot her in the middle of her eyes to kill her. I agree to the idea and wait for the bullet to hit me. I woke up then. I was not scared or traumatized. It was more like i am ready to die.

    • Your dream is a reflection of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. You seemed to feel comfortable with the dream, and you acknowledged that you were ready to die.
