Hit Hitting

Apart from aggressiveness, you may hit on an idea, hit on the answer.

An expression of energy or aggression, often fear. If you are hitting a child, it suggests you are still trying to destroy or repress the development of your own child self. In other words, as a child events that happened to you, parental or social punishment or restrictions, may have held back your emerging curiosity, enthusiasm, sexuality, or love. Maybe these things were crushed. But they are still within you to resurrect, and will call out to be healed. So the hitting in your dream would be a continuation of the repression that you received in your early years.

Because of problems we never resolved with our parents, while we are together with a partner we tend to hit them with everything we needed to have worked out with our parents. This is because any emotions or love that was hurt with parents now gets projected onto the present love.

Example: I hit the ground and I could feel intense pain everywhere. I thought ” I love you Thomas ” (my boyfriend). Then I died and everything went black. I then remember standing over my friend who jumped off same building but wasn’t fully dead yet. I felt bad that he was in pain and was looking in his eyes. I then smushed him like a bug with my foot so he would be out of his misery.

As can be seen in this dream you cannot die in your dreams,although you can imagine and feel what you think it is like to die like that. Then as with a computer game, there you are again to play once more – the game being played is The Game if Life.

In one woman’s dream she wrote to me that she could see a massive wave building up and coming towards her. It was so huge that the water was retreating as the wave was building. She said she couldn’t move because there was nowhere she could run from it, and so she stood in fear of it. Then as it hit her she woke in fear.

Now I want to say to somebody like that, “Why are you frightened of life?” I say this because it is so obvious in the dream that what is coming to her is something so huge and wonderful, and yet she is the terrified of it. That wave was a massive force of positive change that if she had met it would have transformed her life. Unfortunately many people are frightened of Life. See Life’s Little Secrets

Being hit in the guts in a dream is usually about hurts in a relationship or something to do with sex, feeling a target of someone’s verbal or emotional attack.

Example: I was attending an adult class with about 20 or 30 people, mostly men. The teacher came in. He said something and a man asked a question or spoke back. The teacher got really angry and hit him with a walking stick. Someone else in the class remarked on the beating and was attacked also. A man sitting next to me on my left said that if the teacher hit him he wouldn’t sit and take it.

But as the second man was hit, my companion said something like – Bloody hell. The teacher landed two mighty blows on his arse, but he didn’t move. I said in horror “Good God!” whereupon the teacher moved to hit me. I stood up and said, “If you hit me with that thing I’ll whack you in the fucking ear.” I felt keyed up and ready to fight. He backed off and threatened to get the headmaster on me. I told him to try it. He said if I could do better try it. So I took over the class and it went really well.

Then I seemed to be witnessing a young man making love with a girl in a room. A teacher burst into the room and got angry at the couple. The young man was not at all cowed. He said, “You burst into a private room without knocking. We happen to be adults. I want an apology.” The teacher was silent for a time then apologised. The young man said, “Thank you sir. I am proud to acknowledge you as my teacher.”

The dreamer was a man in his forties, and the dream, when he explored it was about the sort of violence he witnessed at school. It shows how he felt and what he wanted to do, to stand up for himself for taking such heavy blows – but at the time lived in the belief that it was normal. But he was now seeing it from a different viewpoint, and handled it very well. As you can see, you do not have to cower to aggressors in your dreams.

i dreamt that my 4 yr old godson ( hes also my cousins child) started dancing and running towards the street while a white car was speeding down the road. it seemed that hed be hit by the car. i went after him, yelled stop and slapped him hard on his face before he reached the street. he stopped . when he looked at me i saw the bruises on the side of his face and remembered that he had gotten hurt earlier that day. i had slapped him in the same area and he cried a little because that area hurt more now. i was sorry when i saw his face but also i didnt know anything else i could have done instead of slapping him. his mom saw and was upset and i tried to explain that he was running/ dancing towards the car and couldve gotten hit.

also ive been thinking for a while that i should call my godson to check on him .

earlier that day before i had the dream, while i was at work, we had training. im an assistant jhs teacher in japan since 2 months ago. we went to jhs training and elementary school training. at the elementary training we planing language games , and a story was read to us like “circle time” on the floor lol. i enjoyed that training. a teacher in another group asked me how that training went and i kept smiling and told her “it was a lot of fun”. she said friendly that she could tell i enjoyed it from my face. when she said that i felt embarrassed and juvenile. i tried to not smile and put on a more mature behavior.

later that evening i had a phone interview for a volunteer position overseas. i had a few questions about relationships and possibilities of starting a family between placements or during placements.

after my interview i checked my phone and had received a text from an ex boyfriend i hadnt spoken to in months. he asked me how i was doing and told me he had a dream that i was pregnant. i havnt responded back to him yet because im not sure how i want to. i want to be angry with him because hes been kind of rude and hasnt texted me for months. i miss him but i think i shouldnt say much to him.

and after all of this i watched a little tv, looked at my phone and fell asleep and had that dream

    Hi – It would help you to understand your dreams, if you would read – http://dreamhawk.com/news/summing-up/ and also http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/features-found-on-site/ which has so much information in.

    Nothing can replace your own ability to understand your dream. With a little effort you can do this by practising what is described in – http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson or http://dreamhawk.com/dream-dictionary/getting-at-your-dreams-meaning/


    Yenn – It is difficult to understand your dream without some feedback. Have you been looking for some excuse to leave your husband? Has your husband ever hit your children before?

    Of course it might have nothing to do with those things. For many people do not realise that they have an inner husband equally as powerful as an external husband. You have taken in millions of bit of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences, along with all the feelings or problems met by loving and living with your husband, and they are what makes you the person you are. This is true even if your husband was never there for you – you still have all the memories of him not being there for you filed under ‘husband’. The memories and experience we gather unconsciously change us and are not lost. It is part of you and is symbolised in dreams as a person or event. Such an inner husband can appear in dreams because you are deeply influenced by what you hold within you.

    But often we project onto our partner the hurts we carry from our father. Whatever the cause is it seems you are moving toward difficult times. But please try imaging yourself as your husband as he is in the dream, it often helps to see things clearly. Use http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/acting-on-your-dream/#BeingPerson

Last night, I had a very disturbing dream that I kept throwing (what appears to be..) my own baby down the stairs. I have children, and even though none of them are infants, I can’t shake this feeling of guilt I have over the dream.

-Sandra 2017-03-02 21:04:01

Thinking about the dream a little more. I think it was about how I was punishing my inner child. I realised the tea towel was the same tea towels my child minder had. I feel a lot lighter today. Last night I had music playing while I tidied my room. I felt so free dancing and singing along. What a revelation.Wow. I really admire the work you do.

    -Tony Crisp 2017-03-03 13:42:54

    Thanks so much Sandra. That inner child need loving and plenty of space to grow.

    Tony 🙂

      Just a little update. I had another dream about a baby a few nights ago. I was in the bath with the baby. She was smiling and scooped some water up in her mouth and cheekily spat it out like a little fountain. And then she gave me the cutest little smile ever. I wrapped my arms around her thinking I really need to protect my baby. And in my waking life I’ve finally learned how to take care of myself and not allow other people to abuse me. Some real healing has taken place. Thank you again for the work that you do. It makes a lot more sense than some of the other dream interpretation sites I’ve read.

        -Tony Crisp 2017-03-22 9:47:24

        Sandra – Thanks for that.

        The thing about meeting your inner child, is that it will now grow, so watch out for changes in you as it goes through adolescence.

I had a dream this morning that I was hitting a baby with a tea towel. It was my daughter when she was a todler. I could feel the sting of the tea towel hitting the baby’s shoulder. I hit her over and over again. She was being bold and I felt like I needed to punish her. I put her in a cupboard. Later I owned up to her what I had done and I felt really bad. I was thinking of my niece who is two and saying imagine if I did that to her? My daughter said my brother in law (my nieces father) would sort me out. I have a hazy memory of the woman who minded me as a child telling me I had to punish the baby and a man showing me how to do it with the tea towel. I felt so guilty afterwards. I was flitting between justifying it to myself and telling myself that it was wrong. I do feel that the childminder I had as a child was quite cold. I used to kick and scream when my parents dropped me off there. And when they left the childminder would shout at me for being bold. I am quite aware that this experience affected me so I’m wondering why I’m dreaming about it. Is there something else my subconscious mind is trying to tell me? Could it be more to do with my relationship with my daughter?

I had a dream that i was driving, and kept having to turn around, and go in the opposite direction. But each time, i ended up driving on the wrong side of the road, and narrowly escaped an accident. Then is started flying, but kep knocking up against brick walls. Suddenly i flew over toward a door, and it opened, and inside was just darkness. I was too afraid to see what was in the darkness, so i consciously woke myself up.

    Dear Gowon – Your dream may reflect the difficulties you meet when you become aware that you are going in a direction that may not reflect your own inner direction.
    This is not clear though because you do not mention why you have to turn around.
    Is there an obstacle?
    Is the rest of the road under construction?
    This may also suggest many things such as a rough road ahead, or that there are many obstacles to deal with. You might have to decide on a new direction, so continuing might be difficult.
    It could be that you will have to develop new ways of doing things, learning a different approach. May imply building new habits, new ideals, new patterns of mind; learning new ways to approach old, and so daring to travel new territory, and so a journey into the darkness or the unknown; the hidden depths of yourself.
    The part of your dream after having turned around reflects that you may be under a lot of stress at the moment and you have not find the right approach yet to deal with it.
    Undoing inner obstacles – “but kept knocking up against brick walls” – may be enabled by using the approach “Opening to Life”, which you may feel like exploring; http://dreamhawk.com/approaches-to-being/opening-to-life/
    Daring to open the door – you did create the whole dream – is a courageous step and so perhaps next time you dare to stay in the darkness, which may also be a symbol of your inner confusion; this stage often precedes inner clarity.
    An approach to learn to overcome your fears is called http://dreamhawk.com/dream-encyclopedia/secrets-power-dreaming/
    With this approach you can practise seeing what is in the darkness.

I dreamed I was watching a boy who looked like he was about 10 to 12 years and he was hold his toddler sister who looked like she was 4 or 5. They were walking up on a stair way and a boy with a bat who looked the brothers age, was holding and beating the brother and sister, following them and beating them with a bat. Once they got on the level from being beaten going up stairs, the boy with the bat starts beating the toddler in the head repeatedly, and the whole time the little girl nor her brother blocks the hits. The boy with the bat beat the little girl in the head I think about 15 times then stopped. She seem to shake it off and then her brother sat her in a seat type window box.
