The appearance of blood in a dream may frighten us terribly and raise questions: Is the appearance of blood in a dream related to injury and harm to us or, conversely, is it related to an experience of power and animals? How should we analyze dreams in which blood appears and what meaning should we give them? Here are some suggestions for interpretation.
Interpretation of blood in a dream
In note life the appearance of blood usually signifies injury or injury and accordingly, evokes fears and a feeling that we are physically or mentally threatened. In contrast, the appearance of blood in a dream may have different and additional meanings pertaining to both the symbolic meaning of blood and the personal psychological meanings of blood for each and every dreamer.
The meaning of the blood symbol in a dream
Deciphering dreams by deciphering the meanings of symbols that appear in a dream is the earliest approach to deciphering dreams. Already in the Bible and ancient Egyptian writings there are references to trying to identify the meaning of specific symbols that appear in a dream, and even in the early days of psychoanalysis the meaning of specific symbols was emphasized. Blood in a dream is considered to be an element that can have different symbolic meanings. A hated person is the source of blood in a dream.
It is important to note that these interpretations are questionable and most professionals in the field of psychology will oppose them. This, from a conception that denies the existence of universal meanings specific to the symbols of the dream, and emphasizes the personal subjective meaning of the appearance of blood in a dream for each dreamer and dreamer.

Interpretation of the dream in psychological terms
How, then, can one find the personal meaning of blood in a dream? Sigmund Freud, along with his reference to the symbolic meanings, suggested that the dream is "the king's way to the unconscious" since it reveals unconscious and inaccessible contents in ignorance. To prevent the awakening of too much anxiety, the mind disguises the dream by various means including condensation, displacement, symbolization and so on. To decipher the dream and the meanings behind the camouflage, Freud suggested that one should look at the dreamer's spontaneous associations and decipher through them the personal meaning that a particular element has for the dreamer. For example, a man who dreamed that his boss was cut from a glass of a door, described in associations to a dream that as a child he was cut by crises of a glass that his father dropped and needed several stitches. For this dreamer, the appearance of blood in the dream symbolized feelings of anger and aggression towards the father. In contrast, the appearance of blood in a dream symbolized for a girl who began to recover from prolonged dealing with anorexia the appearance of menstruation, which symbolized an improvement in her physical condition.
What does a recurring blood dream mean?
The recurrence of blood in a dream, similar to the repetition of other elements in dreams, means that our mind is trying to process a particular subject or unconscious content is trying to rise to our consciousness. However, in some cases the recurring appearance of blood in a dream, accompanied by a feeling of fear and discomfort, is in some cases associated with an anxiety disorder known as blood phobia and manifests itself in excessive and extreme fear of blood appearance or blood-related situations (e.g. blood tests, injections). People dealing with a blood phobia may be intensely preoccupied with blood both when awake and in their dreams.
How to deal with recurring blood dreams?
The way to deal with recurring dreams is to try to understand their personal meaning and the emotional causes of their recurrence. As mentioned, the recurrence of blood in a dream often marks the mind's attempts to draw our attention to an unresolved issue or conflict. Accordingly, the best way to deal with recurring dreams about blood is to listen to the dream and try to decipher it. It is important to note that in case the recurrence of blood in the dream appears as part of a state of blood phobia - it is important to also treat the dream as part of an anxiety disorder which is recommended to be treated through cognitive-behavioral therapy.
