Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

The first thing I’m gonna says oh what a dream!

Commonly, animals that get slaughtered are: lambs, deer, horses, chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, sheep and buffalo. I will try to cover all of these animals within this dream interpretation. I can imagine that the slaughter was rather powerful in your dream - for you to even be looking up the meaning! Welcome to the dream part of my website. I have been researching dreams are over twenty years and my name is Flo. At the end of the day, we do not know really why we have dreams. If you could see blood in the dream connected to the slaughter this indicates a new beginning from a spiritual perspective. Now, there’s been many scientific research programs and various dreams have been measured through laboratory studies. What I do know is that dreams themselves offer us a remarkable insight into our own hidden elements in our mind. I can imagine that the dream of seeing animals or people slaughtered can be somewhat distressing. Firstly, I am sorry that you’ve had such a disturbing dream. Try not to worry too much even if you keep living the dream in your mind. Scroll down for more on this dream meaning.

Firstly, if this dream turned out to be a complete nightmare and is still in your conscious mind and it is important for us to try to decode it. Generally, there are many different types of animals that can appear to be slaughtered in your dream. There may be different reasons for slaughtering the animals in your dream, it could be because they are diseased or alternatively for consumption reasons. The actual details of the dream should also be taken into consideration. Did you see carcasses or did you actually slaughter the animal yourself? Perhaps you were escaping and running through a wood, and you needed to eat so you slaughtered a deer. Alternatively, you could have actually seen a proper slaughterhouse and perhaps the butcher was slaughtering the animals? Whatever occurred in the dream, if you could see “slaughter” then this dream meaning will help you.

Ok, let’s look firstly at animal slaughter then move onto human slaughter in dreams. Sometimes we do not understand the slaughtering of animals, and since 1853 there has been a focus on humane methods of slaughter. For example, the development of stunning technologies has helped alleviate the pain of slaughter. If you saw any stunning equipment or machinery involved in the slaughter then from a psychological perspective this indicates that you are taking stock of your own objectives in life. If we turn to some of the famous dream psychologists such as Sigmund Freud or Carl Jung, they both believed that dreams were connected to our external impressions and visions in waking life. This means perhaps you saw the slaughter of people or animals on the television which resulted in this dream. Now, both these dreams psychologist did not believe in the spiritual side of dream interpretation.

What is it dream interpretation of slaughtered animals?

In ancient spiritual dream books slaughtering animals is connected to the aspects and betrayals of yourself. It is important to look at the actual details of the dream, in order to find the appropriate meaning. If you cannot define what animals being slaughtered in the dream it can suggest that you need to find time for your own space. Generally, in ancient dream interpretation books to see an animal being slaughtered indicates that there is a loss of connection in your waking life. I will go into the deeper meaning of slaughtering each specific animal in a few moments, however, the general meaning of slaughtering animals suggests that there were certain parts of yourself which are not yet discovered. Alternatively, the dream can also indicate that you are looking towards the future. It could be that you need to end a situation or problem in life in order to continue to prosper. This dream may be given new clues as to how you can use future events to the best possible outcome. deer, horses, chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, sheep and buffalo.

What does it mean to see a lamb or sheep slaughtered in a dream?

To see a lamb being slaughtered in the dream is associated with your own inner wisdom and innocence in life. Perhaps you heard the crack of the neck, all you could see a knife sliding down the carcass. It can be very hard to witness such a dream. Sometimes we forget about the actual slaughter of animals, we just walk through the supermarket aisles seeing the meat on polystyrene trays. We do not actually have the connection or stop and think about the slaughter of the Lamb. From a spiritual perspective, this dream indicates that they need to be more clarity in life. You have achieved what you need to but in order to progress, you need more wisdom. If we turn to the biblical meaning of the lamb then Jesus believed that the Lamb of God is connected to the greater good in life. Therefore, to see the lamb being slaughtered is a sign that there may be a hidden agenda and resolve problems or feelings need to come to the surface. As you may expect the lamb is also connected to our inner child and conformity aspects of life. The takeaway from this dream is that you should try to open up to others, achieve clarity within yourself and above all be vulnerable.

What does the dream interpretation of a cow which is slaughtered?

I believe that cows are quite interesting when they appear in dreams. They can be associated with sacrifice or even a birth and mother nature. The cow slaughtered in a dream indicates you are feeling stuck in life. As a cow is a spiritual mother goddess it can suggest that you are contemplating the true nature of a current situation. I believe that the cow itself gives us special energy, especially as we derive milk from cows, this energy can be translated into the dream state. Now, in some religions the cow is also sacred, for example Hindu communities do not eat beef. Therefore, from a dream “spiritual” perspective this implies breaking away from something to ensure that you have the right space in order to think and take a more objective perspective on life. I had a very strange dream walks into a room and the cow was being slaughtered, there was blood everywhere but the whole dream seemed very calm and collective. When I try to decode my dream I understood that there was an issue that I had at work. I believe that the dream was in connection with the fact that "you" have to stand back and review the situation from an outside perspective. The cow I believe was a symbolism of the nurturing that I had to show the work context. There is also from ancient dream dictionaries the fact that cows also provide us with not only food and milk but also the symbolism of childbirth and fertility. It could simply be that the cow occurred in your dream because you are thinking about children getting pregnant if you are a woman.

Chickens are important animals in our culture. The chicken often appears in dreams when we need to think about how we respond to others in life.

What is a dream interpretation of slaughtering a goat?

I'm going to first turn to the spiritual meaning of a goat in this dream interpretation because it is important to understand how the goat being slaughtered in your dream affects your subconscious mind. The goat itself is sometimes quite difficult animals to understand. If we look at the goat as a spiritual symbolism it is often connected to how hard we work in life. The key traits of the goat are gentleness, happiness, and contentment so how do these connect to your dream? Goats themselves can symbolize how you deal with your social relationships. Why? Because the goat is very different than rams or sheep. Why? Because groups of goats normally reside together on grassy hills - spiritually the goat is associated with your own independence. Goats are also connected to our own achievements, as I said in the opening paragraph they are connected to work and how we approach our work situations. Goats are rather curious, they also symbolize the fact that you are going to think about how you connect with others. More commonly how you gain the respect of others. Therefore, the dream of a slaughtered goat indicates that there will be a problem in the future. The dream can suggest that perhaps you have fallen out with people in your life. Have you found difficult to gain respect? Slaughtering a goat in the dream state indicates that you have seen a problem in motion. If you see others slaughtering the goat it indicates you are contemplating various events in your life. From dream psychology perspective, it is often thought that we often dream of something we see in our waking life. For example, you may have seen a goat in a field and this is the reason for the dream. The slaughtering action can, according to Freud connect with our inner ego.
