Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Victims are individuals who suffer as a result of some catastrophic event or situation which affects them in detrimental ways.

Being a victim refers to the situation causing you to lose something or to bring negativity to your life thus making your life less than what it was before it happened. Survivors are the antithesis of victims because even though the situation the person had to go through was horrific or hard in some way, they survived it and learned something new or it changed their life in a positive way.

If you dream that you are a victim of rape this means that you are feeling violated either through some traumatic relationship issue or through the trust of a loved one which has been violated. If you are a victim of rape in the dream, this can also mean that you are angry about a romantic situation that went bad and need to learn to control it in the future.

In this dream you may have

  • Been a victim of rape.
  • Been the person inflicting a rape on a victim.
  • Were a victim of grand theft auto.
  • Were a victim of a flood.
  • Were a victim of a robbery.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You accepted the robbery as a chance to become a survivor.
  • Decided in the middle of the dream that you were not going to get raped and changed the scenario completely.
  • Were a victim of an emotionally abusive relationship but got out of it.

Detailed dream meaning

Being a victim in a dream indicates losing control or being out of control. These dreams are representations of someone else or something else taking control actively from you rather than just giving it up. Sometimes you will have these images as well when you are being taken advantage of and other times when you are feeling guilty. These kinds of dreams can be very complex and the complete dream must be examined when you decide what the dream means.

What you are victim of is important as well. Dreaming that you are a victim of a robbery, for example is a sign that you are going to lose out on a project you have begun for financial gain. Being a victim of grand theft auto (someone stealing your vehicle) this means that the dreamer’s prized possessions are going to be taken from them. When one dreams of being a victim of an emotionally abusive relationship, this means the dreamer is going to soon take charge over environments which have become hurtful to them.

Being a victim of circumstance is another specific dream where it is about someone who is just being in the wrong place at the wrong time (with varying possibilities) this means the dreamer is stuck in a repetitive cycle of believing that they are going to get in the way.

When mother nature is the one causing the problem in a dream and you are being a victim of a flood, or a flash flood, this means the dreamer is overwhelmed by their emotions and needs to find a way to ground themselves either through meditation or through counseling or both. 

Victimology in a dream can also be representative of a past trauma that was suffered. Especially if you are suffering from reoccurring dreams over and over again

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Vulnerability in new relationships
  • Breach of trust between friends or lovers
  • Victim like mentalities

Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of victim

Victim. Sadness. Full disclosure. Betrayal. Uncertainty. Consternation. Concentration. Morose. Hopeful.
