Dream Interpretation #12 ~ Monster Dreams

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.

Please share your monster dreams with us, either in the comments or create your own post and link back.

Have a Happy Halloween and check back in two weeks when we interpret kissing dreams!


  1. I never have monster dreams. I try to control my dreams when I first go to bed and fantasize about events in history I would have liked to be part of. A kind of reincarnation dream. When I drift off I don’t remember much in the morning.

      • I didn’t realize my link would show up twice if I left a comment with the link. I didn’t see the pingback when I commented. ….But a techy question: how did you get the picture to show up in the comment. I’d like to do that if I start doing blog hops again. I think visuals help people to visit other people’s sites.

      • It’s fine. Many do that because it can take a few hours for me to approve all the linkbacks. I’m not sure how to post a picture deliberately ~ if mine show up, it isn’t intentional 🙂

  2. “If уоu kеер seeing thе ѕаmе dream, thiѕ iѕ bесаuѕе уоu ѕtill hаvеn’t lеаrnеd thе
    lesson. Thе unсоnѕсiоuѕ mind has to ѕhоw уоu thе same thing many times, in thе
    hope thаt someday уоu’ll learn the lеѕѕоn. Yоu hаvе tо саrе аbоut the intеrрrеtаtiоn оf your dreams аnd uѕе thе uniԛuе ѕсiеntifiс mеthоd whiсh соrrесtlу trаnѕlаtеѕ their mеаning.” Is this true? I came across this in an e-book called Repetitive Patterns,
