Rape, Dream Interpretation

Example: \ tried to turn but my legs were like lead.

The man caught me and I fought. He tried to rape me but couldn’t do it. As I talked to him I began to feel sorry for him and not frightened. I realised that inside he was a nice person. In the end I found I liked him so much I began to kiss him myself (Mrs JB). Rape in dreams is very different from rape in real life, as we create our own dream, so why introduce rape? Perhaps in the above example Mrs JB discovers her own power in the situation as she realises the weakness of the male.

Example: A man is trying to make love and at the last moment I repel him as I know it will cause a pregnancy. When I was about 10 I was raped and for many years had a fear of men’ (Anon.). This is the other side of rape. Rape in this dream may be memories, the effects of which are still visible in the life of this dreamer, causing her difficulties in warm sexuality.

Example: The devil attacked a woman. He was invisible.

The woman turned black as he raped her. She didn’t die. At this point I woke and went to the toiler. On returning to bed I continued the dream, particularly wondenng what I was in conflict with in the image of the devil. I found it disturbinr and frightening to be confronted by such a powerful oppo­nent. Partly because of the rape, I realised it was repressed sexuality. I then approached the “black” woman with tender­ness and this transformed the devil into available sexual or emotional energy. I tried this again and again. Each time it worked, and I could observe the devil was my sexual warmth and love which had become negative through restraint’ (Neil V). In this male dream, it is the conflict with his sexuality which causes the devilish’ rape. When he can find tender­ness, the negative aspect disappears. Rape also depicts the real evil of another person disregarding our personal needs and feelings, abusing not only the body, but particularly the ‘person’. Being raped by someone known: feeling anxious about sex with them, fighting off desire for them.

To dream of being sexually assaulted is indicative of a demonically induced nightmare

Forcefully taking advantage of the innocent, physically, financially, i.E. Like locust that rape the land

Any image of rape appearing in dreams can be as much to do with violation of personal space as with the sexual act. Rape may only appear as an image when we as adults are ready to deal with trauma of any kind.

To dream of being raped suggests a subconscious desire to be sexually abused or humiliated. You might be conveying a hidden desire to be violated, conquered, or forced. Some women secretly wish to be sexually overpowered without being battered. Also, it may indicate hatred and ill-feelings toward the opposite sex. Alternatively, it indicates you are feeling violated or your well-being and self-esteem is being impinged. You dream may also be a sign that you are being forced to do something against your will. Dreams of rape are mostly experienced by actual rape victims.

The dream is usually a manifestation of their traumatic encounter.

To witness a rape being committed denotes sexual incapacity or ambivalence.

Vision: Sometimes a dream about rape is a sign that the dreamer is looking for aggressive sex. In general, however, a dream about rape means that others are ignoring your feelings and wishes—or you are ignoring theirs. See Aggression, Intercourse, Sexuality.

This is a dream of immediate warning which could involve yourself or your resources.

To dream that you are being raped, or even if you dream you see someone else being raped, then avoid loose companions and the seamier side of life’s highways and byways for safeties sake. Also be sure that you check everything on any financial agreement, or any deal so whatever, involving your finances, as the chance of having your bank account ‘raped’, or your business, is very high.

(See Adultery)

A dream about a rape (whether it was you or someone else being attacked in the dream) suggests that you are feeling violated in some way. Something or someone is jeopardizing your self-esteem and emotional well-being. Dreams of rape are also common for those who were actually raped in their waking life.

1. Violation of principles, beliefs.

2. Assault on sense of worth, self-esteem.

3. Feelings of vengeance.

A dream of rape, one in which a woman is sexually attacked by a man, is considered, by some authorities, to be the expression of the subconscious desiring a fulfillment of sexual love contrary to the conscious wishes in the waking hours of the woman.

Dreams of rape denote that you are grappling with victim/perpetrator issues. Perhaps you have taken what is not yours, or you have allowed someone to take advantage of you. See Boundaries.

see Sex

To dream that rape has been committed among your acquaintances, denotes that you will be shocked at the distress of some of your friends.

For a young woman to dream that she has been the victim of rape, foretells that she will have troubles, which will wound her pride, and her lover will be estranged.

Dreaming about being raped is a nightmare that inflicts fear and anxiety upon recall. Since rape is a brutal and deeply personal violation, it suggests that the dreamer may be feeling robbed of options and negated as a human being. In a dream, as in real life, rape have very little to do with sex. It is about power, control, anger, and other very destructive emotions. In order to understand this dream, you may need to think about the areas of your life that causes you great anxiety and fear.

If you are superstitious, take this dream as a warning. Take precautions, protect yourself emotionally and physically and don’t engage in careless behaviors.

If you were a rape victim, the traumatic nature of this experience may cause you to have a dream like this from time to time.

To dream of committing or witnessing a rape prophesies a period of business and mental depression.
