The Dream Meanings for Fighting or Violence
The meaning of dreams about fighting usually symbolizes anger and confusion that comes about in times of change. If nothing is changing in your life, it may be a clue that a change is needed or that you want to change internally. Fighting with strangers usually represents an internal struggle. Fighting with familiar people may be an extension of daily life and a reflection on your relationship with them.
Research shows that most dreams are unpleasant. Violent dreams are relatively common and may be a reflection of the confusion and conflict that the dreamer experiences in daily life. Interpreting dreams with violent themes suggest that the dreamer has unconscious negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, and anger. If you are not dealing with these feelings consciously, your dreams are compensating and bringing into awareness the need for honest reflection and emotional balance in daily life.
Dreaming about fighting also may reflect the difficulties you have in balancing your conflicting personality traits. If you are watching a fight: you could help other people with your conciliatory words to diffuse the tension between them. If you dream of fighting on a battlefield, your enemies and adversaries are making your life difficult and you will succeed in defending yourself.
A fight in dreams may indicate unresolved internal conflict and the need to see tough times through to completion. Fighting in a dream can be an unconscious stance of resistance against something that needs to be acknowledged. Another interpretation can be feeling a need to defend or protect yourself especially when competing with others. Also see anger, nightmares, war, rape, kill or killing.
