Detailed dream interpretation

In human anatomy, the throat connects the body to the brain. The throat is associated with communication in life. It gives us the notion of having an important human body part. The throat chakra is associated with one's ability to communicate and express ourselves - which is the whole basis of this dream. 

Communication is powerful, at its very best it can build us up relationships and friendships are important to us. We communicate we give out a sense of love, it's important that we have a reliable support system. Sometimes however in life people become rather toxic and this can be destructive to us. It generally affects our value system, and negatively impacts our life. If you dream that there is anything wrong with your throat, then it is an indication that you need to think about yourself. Remember we can't do everything alone. 

This dream also means that in waking life feelings and thoughts are linked and interconnected. To see a throat bleeding is connected to emotions and intellect. It can suggest that one's emotions are sometimes confused. It will be difficult in waking life to create balance if your own throat is bleeding. One is likely to suffer from a difficult situation if they see an animal's throat slit or bleeding.

As we have learned in the opening paragraph, throat dreams symbolize an ability to communicate. This line of communication with others may be blocked. This dream can also mean trying to accept oneself. To see a women's throat, according to ancient dream dictionaries means that one will fails to express themselves. This dream can indicate the need to develop better skills in order to communicate better with others.

Seeing your own throat in a dream suggests the ability to communicate matters concerning your ideas and feelings. It is also important to note that the throat is a sensitive area of the body, this means that one needs to be sensitive to others in communication. In addition, without immediate treatment, a problem with the throat can give you a lot of health problems. To dream of your own throat, (especially if it is a beautiful one) without injuries foretells prosperity in your career.

A male throat featured in one's dream indicates the need to maintain and sustain one's endeavors in business. Someone is likely to be engaged in conflict, but for the dreamer, this may provide promotion or success.

On the other hand, dreaming of throat problems (such as throat cancer) means that one is unable to establish themselves. This can mean that one is having difficulty expressing ideas and feelings for fear of disapproval from society. It is not a crime to commit mistakes or to possess weaknesses, after all, you are only human. If you dream of your throat being slit by another or hanged this is a warning dream: do not be engulfed too much in other people's affairs. Think of your own life, and the people that care for you. The injury to your throat is a metaphor to take care of oneself.

If you dream of people without heads (just their throat) beware for you might be caught off guard. Look at yourself from an outsider's perspective, are you being true to yourself or others?

Dreams about a knife to your throat

If you dream of someone holding a knife or cutting your throat then this can be a concerning dream. Knives are symbols of cutting away things in life and to cut see someone you know hold this against your neck in a dream denotes issues of aggression from the person portrayed in the dream. If the knife was dull or did not work then this could be a message from your subconscious mind telling you that you need be aware of those around you. The other important that we need to understand is what the knife actually looked like.

It comes as no surprise that dreams of a knife to your throat can often be associated with communication. Frequently we often have such dreams when we are trying to communicate with someone who does not seem that interested. Before going any further I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the issue of gender. It is often believed that men tend to use violence against others, and it is relatively rare for women to dream she is the victim. It's important to acknowledge that the dream can have a gender focus. If the person trying to cut your throat is of the same gender then look out for those people (of the same gender) who could be toxic in your life.

Throat chakra and our dreams

Spiritually speaking we all have an aura and this is made of subtle areas. The aura is affected by many things in life such as who we socialize with, who we talk to, and what we do. Energy flows through our body there are suppose to be seven points to our body known as chakras. The throat chakra is one of these seven.  The throat chakra is the fifth chakra in the system. The throat chakra is connected to purification, this chakra is generally located just above the collarbone known as the third cervical vertebra. The throat chakra connects the heart chakra to the third eye. If you imagine taking a large glass of water, envisage water traveling through your throat. As it washes over the throat chakra imagine yourself communicating and you will see your chakra in your mind's eye. 

The throat chakra is associated with communication and expression. The reason why mention this in this dream interpretation of throats is that to dream of the throat may be a result that your throat chakra is blocked. If you are feeling misunderstood or unable to manifest the things that you want in life then it is likely that the dream about your throat has appeared because your chakra is blocked.
