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.

  1. I had a dream that I was stranded during the day in the middle of a gang of 4-5 men wearing black clothes. While they were fighting they all pulled out their guns while I just stood their frozen not knowing what to.. praying that someone would come to my rescue. Moments later, I felt this hot and burning sensation that something went through my left arm. When I looked down in the dream I saw the bullet hole and blood, but I was distended to stay awake and not pass out so I could figure out what was going to happen. I was so confused on why I could feel the pain knowing I was only dreaming. After 2 seconds of looking at the bullet wound I knew I had to wake my self up so my arm could stop hurting. It felt like I when through 3 different scenes of my eyes opening untill I was finally awake… I know that does not make any sense but I tried my best to describe..

  2. I had a dream the one of my friends got kidnapped and we had to go save her. So when we got there the guy had a gun and so did we. He came charging at us and started shooting I shot back at him. I my bullet skinned him and he shot me in my leg and it felt like someone pinched me and when I woke up it felt like I was getting pinched on my leg for around 10 seconds. Can you explain please.

Ensure that this dream guides you to share your kindness and compassion at all times, as this will draw positive people and energy into your life.

  3. I almost never dream, and when I do dream they’re good dreams for the most part. Last night I had a horrible dream. I was with people I didn’t know, in a house. The phone kept ringing, and there was always a creepy voice saying creepy things. Then there was 3 people outside. Somebody had s gun, then somebody threw a grenade. I somehow survived and was kept captive by a man for years. Then somebody got suspicious, so he decided to shoot me point blank in the temple twice. I somehow survived again and tried to escape. He was planning on cooking my head and caught me in the kitchen. He kept trying to stab me with a humongous fork, and I was able to get it and stabbed him to death. Then the actress who plays Elsa was outside waving. It turned into like I had been watching a movie. My ex was watching, and was so surprised she was in the movie. I was like “How did you not know that?” 😂 Strangest, scariest, most violent dream I’ve ever had with the most random ending. I actually took chantix before and never even had bad dreams then. I have no clue how to decode all that. Just hoping I never have it again.

    • Your dream is an amalgamation of a wide variety of influences that you have in your life. You may find that reducing the violent and dramatic media that you consume will be beneficial for you.

  5. I had a dream of getting shot. All of my family were in a nice building eating and having a great time, but there was this person. In the dream, I knew this person. Although, in real life, I don’t know him. I loved him so much and knew what was going to happen to him. I knew the shooter was going to go for him, so I started hugging him while he was getting food knowing that the shooter was going to come for him. When the time came, I was shot on the side and started walking where everybody was, barely. After that, the guy who was going to get shot apprehended the shooter. Everyone surrounded me and that’s when I woke up.

  6. I had a dream that included my boyfriend, his best friend, and my dad. My boyfriend shot his best friend and he died then my boyfriend shot me twice in the head but it didn’t kill me. My dad raced me to the hospital and I could feel a bullet stuck in my head and the pain. Made me super curious of what it meant and reading this made me realize.

    • This dream is not a reflection of your partner’s behaviors. Dreams about being shot are often manifestations of your knowledge of recent shootings and other violent events. Death is a manifestation of your knowledge of change in a relationship. This doesn’t mean that your relationship is ending. Take this time to consider the reality of your relationship. Nourish your relationship with your partner by spending additional time together in person.

  7. I had a dream about someone fore fully entering my home and trying to rob. When my dad almost escaped, he shot my dad in chest and somehow my did got shot but he was completely fine. Then i followed my dad and he came to catch me, there was some struggle but then he shot me too but again nothing happened to me. I kicked him and took his gun and this time i shot him and he was hurt. When i tried to drag him down the stairs into lane, he escaped.

    After few years robbers are back and they came back to a different home (not the same place as before) But this time I saw them before they entered the apartment and when i was trying to escape from them, i woke up. The terrifying part is I remember every detail. Is this common?

I had a dream last night that I was with two of my previous step sisters (I dont talk to these people anymore) and they were being mean to everyone around us to the point they started attacking them and then a guy pulled out a gun and shot them, and then shot me two-three times since I was with them, but I had my eyes closed while I was being shot and it was in my arm/left chest area.

  11. Hey , I had a dream about being in the army . We were on a mission to kill some terrorist warlord ….. something , anyway me and my team are killing these bad guys and a bunch of us gets killed , so we keep on shooting and then suddenly I’m out of bullets . The next thing I hear was the guy next to me yelling hey “Sergeant” get to the others I’ll cover you , so I ran for cover behind a building where the others are and then I felt it , the horrible pain . Those bad guys shot me , so I look down and see that they have shot me in the upper side of my left leg below the hip , so I fell down in agony . The next moment I hear someone else saying damnit they got Jenkins while he was covering “Serge” , hey corporal get the “Sergeant” out of there before they get the chance to kill him while he’s down . The next thing I can remember is being dragged out of enemy fire and inside the building , but here was something else , I could also feel that same pain in my chest . Then I heard someone asking the guy next to me how bad is it ? , so the guy answers it’s pretty bad , I have to apply pressure to his chest so he doesn’t bleed out . Then this girl who was also part of my team says it’s gonna be okay he’s going to make it . Then some other guy whose name I don’t know said , our backup is on their way just keep him alive a little longer , then we can load him into the chopper so they can take him to the hospital . Then the girl crouches over my left side and says , sir just hang in there the chopper’s on it’s way . Then everything just went blurry and I heard the medic with us saying we’re losing him , damnit Max tell that chopper to hurry the hell up before he’s gone . Then everything went dark and I woke up looking around in my room , that must mean I died in my dream but it felt so real . So I look for the bullet holes but didn’t find anything . Then the next day when I’m in the shower I see bruises in the middle of my chest and on my left upper leg where they had shot me . What does this mean ? please tell me , but remember I’m only 18 and still in highschool . I have never been through trauma or whatever you want to call it . I just want to know what it means . Cheers and I hope you have some answers 🤕 😁
