I had a dream last night that i was in bed like normal but there were these hands in my bed and they just starting squishing my ribs together and it really hurt, in dreams when you get stabbed or shot or something like that it doesn't actually hurt because its just a dream, but it actually really hurt then i woke up straight after, it was like a weird two second dream. I was hoping someone could tell me what it means?
A pain in the ribs might represent someone or something you see as a "thorn in your side."
A hand grabbing at you, or coming at you with ill intent, could represent a feeling or fear of persecution, hostility, aggression, criticism, or being taken advantage of by another person or by people in general.
Dreaming that someone injures you can mean you're feeling threatened emotionally, mentally, or physically in real life, or you may be having a Toxic Dream.
I don't know why it hurt when you woke up..
Dreams can have deep meaning or they can also just be you're mind running wild on you. To feel actual pain once you're awake can only be 2 things. 1 you believed it was real so u still feel it. Like phantom limb pain. And 2 you had actual pain and it seeped into your dream creating your dream scenario.
