When you dream that you killed someone, you are demonstrating a serious conflict between your aspirations and moral standards with which you are forced to comply. Such dreams must be analyzed very carefully because they indicate the need for deeper knowledge of the self before you reach a situation of real violence. If in a dream you murder someone you know, you probably have a hidden resentment toward that person. On the other hand, the murdered person could also be a facet of yourself that you have been trying to suppress or destroy. If the victim is yourself, perhaps you live subdued by your own emotions. The very same instincts that you refuse may be seeking revenge. Some oracles believe this dream portends sadness. Notwithstanding, many others say that the act of killing someone in a dream surprisingly promises unexpected joy, recovery from of an illness, or a way out of an unfortunate period.
