I had a bizarre dream last night/this morning:

Among other things I was a student in a school.  I heard a large crowd and much commotion in a side classroom.  I poked my head in and saw the room full of a bunch of swaggering jocks and bystanders as some teenage boy was being raped by the jocks.  I saw him from the back and they had put a yellow "Swiss Miss" type of wig on him.  Everyone was standing around and cheering.

Horrified by this I raced to find a teacher only to realize how ineffectual she was going to be (in my dream it was my layout teacher from 1st year of art school and she was very nice but not much of an authority figure.) and the situation I had put myself in.

By the time we'd gotten back I realized the whole thing had broken up, everyone was going to deny the whole thing and everyone was going to know I was the one who had ratted them out.  (I had no regrets about it, I was just trying to think what to do about the situation next.)

So in my dream as I was going about school I was constantly being anonymously hit and thwacked and harassed until I finally caught a few of them at it and did a bit of a throw down, using what I had been studying in karate and forcing them to "tap out."  A few of them tried to take me at the same time but I snarled at them that one had to hold off it WASN'T HIS TURN.  He looked a little sheepish and stepped back and let me start tackling his buddy.

The boys I had to fight started young and small and got older and older as I went through the ranks of guys who wanted a piece of me.  (what's interesting is in my dream I never saw the kid who was being raped again...it wasn't a pressing issue...the focus of my dream was what to do about all these guys who wanted to beat me up.)

Initially it was easy but I started getting more nervous as the boys started getting older and a lot stronger then me.

I woke up before I had to spar the last guy.

You still would have kicked the last guy's... well, you would have beat him soundly, I think.

I hope so. In my dream I wished I had taken more jujitsu since I certainly wasn't going to be able to outmuscle the guy.

I'm thinking there is something more psychological to this dream though since it is lingering with me.

Freud Vs Jeung deathmatch?
Here's what the dreamers dictionary has to say:


To dream that you participate in a fight, indicates inner turmoil. Some aspect of yourself is in conflict with another aspect of yourself. Perhaps an unresolved or unacknowledged part is fighting for its right to be heard. It may also parallel a fight or struggle that you are going through in your waking life.
To see others fighting in your dream, suggests that you are unwilling to acknowledge your own problems and turmoil. You are not taking any responsibility or initiative in trying to resolve issues in your waking life.
To dream that you are fighting to the death, indicates that you are unwilling to acknowledge a waking conflict or your own inner turmoil. You are unwilling and refusing to change your old attitudes and habits."

Personally, I always like to ask myself if I was me in my dream or one of the other characters or symbols. Were you, yourself, the boy, the teacher or one of the aggressors?

It's my understanding that everything in the dream represents some aspect of the dreamer. Man, I hope I'm not some swaggering jock rapist!

Re: Freud Vs Jeung deathmatch?
not always. Depends what theory you subscribe to. Sometimes yes, sometimes it's just a case of witnessing or experiencing something in your day to day life that sets off a subconsious visual cue. And let's face it, we are a visual creature.
Jock rapist, yeah, that's just...you all over. (careful you don't step in the sarcasm drip there.) :)

That's really interesting. I've had a lot of disturbing fight dreams, but never really explored what it meant... Hmmm... I have some thinking to do.

Wow, that's pretty deep.

But the Xenite in me just had to laugh at the "IT'S NOT YOUR TURN" part. ;)

"Get her!! But ONE AT A TIME!!!!"

Ephesians 6:12 "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

That verse came to my mind as I read about your dream.
