Dream Interpretation: My Partner Sterilized Equipment to Kill Me

Other people’s dreams are never interesting…except when they’re about sex. Each week, our dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg tells one lucky reader what their dirty dream means. Got a dream you want Lauri to analyze? Click here to submit it. This week, a reader asks Lauri:

I just had this awful dream that my partner was trying to kill me. It was a little odd at times as he was actually married to someone else in the dream, but I lived with him, and they both decided they were going to kill me. I kept trying to get upstairs to get my daughter to leave, but he was upstairs making everything sterile, all the instruments, it was horrid! I finally got my daughter in the car, then his wife — a random women in the dream — came chasing after me, hanging onto the car. It was so realistic I can smell bleach!

Lauri:  Dreaming that someone is trying to knock you off is fairly common. However, I really like the added element of the sterilizing bleach. Nice touch!

So, let’s figure this out. Odds are, your mate is not a homicidal maniac, so don’t worry. But he probably does want to “kill off” something about you or something in your life. Do you have a behavior or a habit he wants you to stop? Does he want you to lose weight? Is there anything going on in your life that he thinks needs to end? Or does he want to kill off who you are now and make you someone else… like his wife?

The bleach, and the fact that he is married in the dream, are both clues. The wife could mean that he is committed to this change that he wants to take place. The bleach might mean he wants to, or he wants you to “come clean” about something. Or perhaps he wants a fresh clean start in some way.

Whatever this change is, it is something you are resisting, which is why the dream was so horrid. It seems you don’t see it as a change but rather a death sentence! Might be a good time to discuss this with your mate, because he may be putting the pressure on a bit too much!
