Dreaming about monsters is a specific category of nightmare. I don’t think I’ve ever dreamed of a “real” monster ~ have you? It seems appropriate with Halloween coming up that we discuss this type of dream and what it might possibly mean.
The Dream Glossary says that a monster in a dream represents something we’re worried about during our waking lives. It could also be a metaphor for injustice ~ perhaps you were treated unfairly or you expect to be. A monster in your dream might symbolize a financial burden, such as a debt that’s hanging over you. If you are talking to a monster, this could mean you’re trying to conceal your feelings about someone and/or that you’re trying to distance yourself from a certain person.
If you’re running away from a dream monster, it’s time to face a real-life problem. If you see others running away from a monster, it means you believe you’re headed for an unpleasant confrontation in the near future. What if the monster actually attacks you in your dream? That symbolizes anxiety and fears that you’re trying to keep hidden. Check out the Dream Glossary for further interpretation of monster dreams.
The Dream Bible says that a dream monster is often a projection of our feelings about a person. A child might dream of a monster eating their younger sibling because they’re envious of the attention the younger one gets. The specific features of a monster are important: teeth, eyes, claws, size, etc. Visit the Dream Bible to learn about more monster dream symbolism.
