Violence in dreams is a consistent metaphor for emotional injury and pain in your waking life. If someone is violent with you in a dream or you are surrounded by hostile people, consider where you are surrounded by mean and angry people in your waking life. Your dream is warning you that you don’t feel safe in their company. If you are violent in a dream, it is a metaphor for your feelings of frustration toward a person or a situation in your waking life. It does not mean you want to hurt the person, but you would like to communicate better. If there is a lot of violence around you in a dream, neither caused by nor directed at you, it reflects your sense that there is a lot of violence (physical and/or emotional) around you in your waking life. Defending yourself in a dream, even if you wound or kill an attacker, is a positive sign, reflecting your willingness and confidence to stand up to your opponents in order to defend yourself.
