Blood in dreams
PostPosted: Sun 11 Jan, 2009  Reply with quote

I almost never have blood in my dreams. I find it weird... last night, for example, I was in some kind of war, and I shot a guy in the face several times overspannen but there was no blood or holes! Lots of other dreams where I shoot enemies there's no blood.

Just wondering if other people are the same or if their dreams are more realistic in that sense....

cool

and just to make it clear, I'm not a violent guy and I don't usually have violent dreams. ^^

I only remember one dream with blood. But it was a very random dream and.. there were, like, rivers of blood eek2

but usually when I have violent ones I'm in a war or something (computer game influence probably). When I shoot the enemies sometimes nothing happens and I say "oh, come on! at least fall down!" without really realizing it's a dream lach2

It might happen because you are not used to seeing blood IRL.

I sense an experiment coming: Try killing some real people and see if it affects your dreams!

I do see blood in dreams. I have seen it often enough. One of my recurring dreams, unfortunately, is being trapped in a slaughterhouse, with bleeding pigs and cows sadblauw although I don't have those dreams very often anymore.

I once dreamt that I was throwing eggs on a wall, that were filled with blood. When I was over my rage the wall was one disgusting bloody mess...

I haven't seen any blood in my dreams, either. I have seen some pretty gory and disgusting things IRL, so I guess that it's a little surprising that I haven't had any dreams that reflect that.

Still, I think that Hollywood's partly to blame for the lack of blood (at least for me). I've seen a fair amount of bloody films, but I've seen a LOT more movies where people get shot with little/no blood. Once you see violence in a particular way, it's hard to imagine it being any other way.

Ugh... my mother has a serious bloodlust when it comes to [horror] movies. The majority of the movies I watched in my childhood were saturated in gory, gratuitous violence. It may also be worth mentioning that my mother's side of the family has a chronic issue with violence themselves.... No need to elaborate.

Oddly enough, nightmares are something of a rarity, for me. Even violent dreams, in general. But in its gritty presence, there is plenty of viscera and blood. And it never seems to be lacking, nor in excess. But, just enough to keep it close to reality. Perhaps too close.

Dreams involving blood are often more realistic than my other dreams. (Well, other than the dreams I have that involve me performing my daily routine....)

I can't remember the last time I had a particularly violent dream...or any dream with blood in it for that matter!

Wow, I never even thought about that before, good on ya! (Though now I'm prolly gonna dream about blood everywhere )

I had read this topic before I went to sleep last night... and I had a very violent and very bloody dream! I am not sure if it was influenced by this topic or the fact that I was playing a very violent and bloody computer game (F.E.A.R.) last night too. ^^ In the dream I was running around being attacked by everything, but I managed to defend myself in a particular violent and ruthless manner, mutilating and destroying anything that stood in my path. I was unstopable! Yay me shy2

i can't remember having blood in my dreams. i mean, i've thrown a butchers knife at a guys ribs and he just pulled it out without bleeding. i've even had horrific dreams where my eyes or teeth have fallen out, and nothing.
maybe we don't see enough blood in real life to see it in our dreams?
