🧭 Direction

Relationships

Consider what in your life may be causing you to feel threatened or unsafe. Are there any changes or challenges that you are currently facing? It may be helpful to confront these issues head-on rather than avoiding them. Additionally, try to find healthy ways to release any pent-up emotions or frustrations.

❀️ Feelings

The dream of a gunshot can evoke a range of intense emotions. It may instill fear, anxiety, and a sense of danger. The sudden loud noise and the potential harm associated with a gunshot can create a feeling of vulnerability and helplessness. The dreamer may experience shock, panic, or a heightened state of alertness. The aftermath of a gunshot can also bring about feelings of confusion, uncertainty, and a need for self-preservation. Overall, this dream can leave a lasting impact, leaving the dreamer with a mix of negative emotions and a lingering sense of unease.

I was in a dark abyss. Super creepy faces appearing out of the darkness. I couldn't move at all. At the end of the dream, a gunshot was heard and I'm assuming I was the one shot.

Dream

I went to this school for a while and one day during the transition to my next class from gym, the principal on the inacom yelled " there is a shooter-" and before he could finish his sentence he got shot and the sound traveled through the school speakers. Everyone started panicking and screaming and crying and I was in a state of paralysis before taking off with everyone else exiting the gym. The school shooter saw us and he pointed his gun at the crowd shooting at it. People ran back into the gym while some was killed on the spot. I ran underneath the bleachers trying to keep myself together. After I was sure the shooter left the gym I attempted to make my way out of the school. The gunshots still echoed throughout the school physically and through the inacom. I was shaking and started crying seeing so many dead bodies and blood. I made my way to the second level of the school and looked out the window, I saw a black van pull up and seen two more people in black with guns exit and enter the school. My heart dropped and my eyes watered. I started breathing heavily and made my way into an empty classroom. I hid on the side of a big closet and sat there catching my breath while crying. I looked at the clock on the other wall. It was 10:30 am. When this started it was 9:00am becuse that's when the transition to my other class starts. I started crying and wondered how could this go on for so long without no police. I crawled over to the desk in the classroom and dialed my mom. She didn't pick up. So I tried a few more times and she didn't pick up. I crawled back to the side of the closet going through an anxiety attack. I ended up falling asleep in the room and I don't know how long. I woke up to the sound of gunshots, my heart started racing and I looked at the clock. It was 4:59pm. My heart dropped. School ends at 3:20pm. I crawled to the desk once again and dialed my mom. She answered and I cried telling her there was a school shooter and it started at 9:00am and it's still going on. I also told her there's three. My mom said she is coming to get me and I said "no don't come. I will get somewhere safe then call you to pick me up." I hanged up the phone and anxiously made my way out the class. I looked out the window and noticed the black van was still here and there was still no police. I heard screaming on the inacom and realized there are still students here. I looked to my left and saw out the window a crowd of students running out of the school and attempting to make their way out of the actual entrance of the school which could take 7-9 minutes if you walked. I gathered up my courage and made my way out the school. I joined the crowd and ran with them. Two of the three school shooters ran out the school as well and started shooting at the crowd. I cried and continue running. I finally made it out with a few people but it could still be considered a crowd . We continued to run until we were far enough from the School. We made our way into a hotel and told the employees what was happening. I begged one of the employees to use their phone and I called my mom to come get me. I gave her the address and she said she would be on her way. One of the people from the crowd screamed and we all turned to see what happend. Even the employees. The same black van that was outside of the school was driving up to the hotel. My heart started raining. The van stopped and the same two shooters that were following the crowd came out. Now I had to escape the hotel.

Dream

I was at home and an unfamiliar apartment. We are catching the news on television and somebody nearby the police were chasing. My son said that's really close Then we had to go outside the apartment intothe car port. My son started cleaning up the garage that had lots of sand on the floor. He was throwing junk out of the sand onto the side. Somebody that seemed like it was one of my adult nieces was sitting on the side didn't want the junk thrown by her. I started looking for the little boy that was in the apartment with us. I realized that he didn't come out the apartment. He stayed inside. I said to my son be careful where you throw that juck that was in the sandy carport floor. I then said, "don't get any of that junk on her. So I backed up the car and moved it while he got more junk and thew over to the other side away from my niece. Then we came back inside the apartment and while we're inside the apartment with some of nieces and other family members. A little girl was look like my daughter as a 3-year-old and a little boy that was unfamiliar to me but related, was there too. After a few minutes the story came on again about the police chasing a guy on a television. This time they chased him into the apartments. My son said "I think that you're close and inside these apartments chasing that guy. Then we heard gunshots and we were saying oh my God, that sounds like the police shot someone. We then started looking for the children, we couldn't find them in the apartment at first. Then we finally found them safe. It was scary when we couldn't find them at first. The children were hiding under a large bed. We were relieved that they were both safe, but it was scarest part was trying to find them.

I was in a squid games like contest with hundreds of other people. We had to walk in a long line on a sidewalk. I look to the other side of the street and there's a man saying " don't do it!". I heard a gunshot and when I looked back he was dead. Everyone had numbers on their head in bold black text. I looked in my reflection and I saw mine was a blue 27 and looked like a software glitch. I tried to cover it up with a sticker. We went to this big building and the guards gave us a big packet of math equations. When we were done with it, the guards would look through it and if you made one mistake you would die.

I was in a dark room and couldnt find a way out, i tried for what seemed hours and had no luck. I passed out from lack of oxygen just as someone broke through, i was dragged out and had an oxygen mask placed on my face when i came around i was surrounded by large men that kept asking who i was. As i looked around i noticed there was about 10 other men bleeding out from gunshot wounds and they were all dead. I couldnt speak so the ones i presumed had saved me picked me up and dragged me into the back of a van and i had a feeling these guys weren't good either. They took me into another room this time ventilated but they left me there with just enough food and water to keep me alive. Someone walked in with a gun and started demanding answers to questions i didnt know and told me i needed to think long and hard about what he wanted to know or id never get to see the sun again. I woke up as he walked out

I was working in this car shop and I was in the garage with a coworker and our boss when we started hearing a loud banging on the back door in the room next door so my boss went to check on it. My coworker and I were confused but kept talking about whatever we were talking about thinking someone got locked out by accident. Then we heard a couple gunshots. The coworker that was banging on the back door shot our boss and then my boyfriend when he had gone to check about the first gunshot. Then he came in aiming the gun at my coworker and I and he said something about how he didn't want to hurt us but we needed to cooperate. So he lead us to this other room that had a bunch of tables and sat us down while him and his "goons" patrolled the room and rest of the building. I was distraught because my boyfriend was dead. My bosses wide was there too and she was really upset and drinking a bottle of wine. I asked if I could have some and took it to my table to cry and drink. The coworker/shooter came over to the table I was at and asked if I wanted anything and I asked if I could go see my boyfriend/say goodbye and he said that was fine so a friend grabbed my hand and ran me to the room that had his casket. As soon as I opened the casket I realized he wasnt dead, just faking and I started crying happy tears. Then seconds later I was shot from behind by someone in the back of the room but it was too dark to see if it was the coworker/shooter or a goon and I fell back onto the casket with my boyfriend and died.
