To dream of seeing or being a terrorist means that your anxieties are evolving into potentially destructive acts. You believe that you have lost control.
Breaking out of rigidity, necessitating change. See Adventure and Hero, who is dissatisfied with the social situation or who is a social outcast. When images of rebellion and protest appear repeatedly, ask yourself what your goals are. Often in such dreams we are looking for the Leader in us or for a sustaining principle.
Dreams of a terrorist signify fear of death, or of your unintegrated shadow. Because every person in your dream reflects an aspect of you, this dream could be an integration dream helping you to embrace and bring to balance your extreme feelings of right and wrong, righteousness, and fierce attachment to your belief system.
A nightmare about a terrorist attack is a venting dream allowing you to release and process through your fears of being violated, invaded feelings about world events.
