Almost all of my dreams are violent. I'm not a very violent person in real life. I've only been in a couple of fights in my life, and i'm about as laid back as you can be. But in my dreams, i am constantly forced to kill people. I'm often being attacked by undead beasts climbing out of the ground, or a swarm of police officers, or any number of demons and what not. Sometimes i shoot them, sometimes i beat the hell out of them with my hands, and sometimes i use my telekinetic powers (which i often have in dreams) to rip their arms and legs off. I've even been in situations where i ended up dying, or killing myself in my dream (despite being not even remotely suicidal in real life). Anyone else find that 90%% of their dreams are violent?

It could be that your so laid back that,even if you think you arent violent,you could be the most violent,twisted,messed up person in history deep inside.Personally,If i were in a zombie apocalypse,I would want to be with you.

However,I dont get this.I dont get it mainly because im the opposite of you.Im physically and verbaly violent but inside im laid back.One of the many things you can hear me say is,If someone hits me in my appendix stitches,I would say something like:"I swear to god,I wish i could cut your stomach open,Sew it back together,And punch you there just to let you see how it feels".If im not verbal,Im mental.I just think about it.If i get REALLY pissed off,I just say stuff in my head like:"Haha!One day,im going to grab the nearest blunt object and bash your head in with it..Lets see how funny it is making fun of me then jack f*ck!!"

I'm relieved to know there are others out there with seriously disturbing dreams. I often dream about being hunted down by soldiers, or being completely in fear hiding from killers - only to be found and shot or murdered some other way. I wake up sweating, and thinking that someone is in my room.

But my life is pretty good, I work hard, but I have many friends, a fiance and an optimistic attitude. What the hell is going on??

hi, I have alot of violent dreams too, but mine are like a story kinda. Its like my future life or something, and each dream is a random clip of my future. I say its my future because I get alot of vivid dreams that will come true months to even years ahead. Its usually years ahead btw. I have guessed that if it is real I'll be hunted down in mid/late 2010. Then from there i'll be busy fighting soldiers, demons, werid creatures, a clone me(although I might be the clone, long story), even some aliens lol. I go on missions searching for relics alot and I am constanly going crazy for this girl who I really hope exist. Now if none of this happens I'm going to write a book about all of this called outcasts, I've already begun a writing a little bit of it.

violent dreams can be a sign of too much stress in your life, or something that always pissed you off that you never could really do anything about. I get violent dreams about my mom sometimes because I always felt ultimately powerless against her when I was younger.

METHOSjr.
It sounds non-normal to me because I only dream of Unicorns and peppermint iceCream, and the iceCream is served to me by baby kittens. Talk it over with your church Pastor, and Youth Grope.

You know it may be depression or derived from an earlier experience. see a psychologist about that man, it may be serious.

It may also mean that the "laid back"-ness you were talking about is actually the cause of it. Perhaps you are TOO laid back and you have problems w/ conflict. I myself have somewhat of a rage problem w/ inatimate objects like video games, electronic equipment that don't work, etc. I've found that because I'm very lenient towards people, I'm sometimes very violent towards other things. Maybe you need another release in your life for anger and you won't have such bad dreams. Go to a shooting range or start working out or something.

I know its probaly a bit late to answer this but you wanted to know if anyone else finds there dreams 90%% violent and I am stepping up to the plate. I have never killed myself in a dream though I have fallen off building hitting the road below. I have mutilated, maimed and murdered people, bathed in blood, had wars bloody gorey wars with supernatural creatures usally 5-6 nights out of seven. Jus
t thought you should kow I find it somewhat normal because I have had them fro as long as i can remember.

I SO can relate to your dreams! I have these HORRIBLE dreams about killing people and/or strange beasts! Some seem like they will never die! I have never killed myself in a dream but I have died before. I have been having dreams like this since I can remember. I don't know why, I don't know how to stop them, and I don't know if they are normal. However, I hope hearing my sorry will bring you comfort in knowing that you are not alone. I know when I read your story that's how I felt. Thanks!

Hi I have just read your post and although I don't suffer from the same sort of dreams myself my husband does. He has told me about some of his dreams since we have been married which can be very violent. He has explained in his dreams he kills, mutilates chases strange people and strange animals. At first it freaked me right out but now I am relieved to know other people dream the same and I know my husband is not a violent person in action at all. He is a very gentle, loving and warm hearted man. I am very curious to know more about why some peoples dreams are so violent. I am curious to ask the people who have dreams like this if by chance they also have visions of events that happen in real life before they actually happen and if they can see what their loved ones are doing while they are sleeping? These are both things my husband has explained that he also experiences.
Look forward to your replies.

LOL. I have violent dreams all the time.. the latest one was this morning actually, so I googled it trying to see whether something was wrong with me :) I def consider myself a pacifist and I'm optimistic and happy in real life..but once I start dreaming wth lol. I've shot monsters and zombies and werewolves... and sometimes they just won't die!.. which usually results in me jumping off a building, despite not being suicidal at all. Weird.

I would say it's normal...although I've never asked anyone. I was just researching it because last night I had the most violent dream I've ever had...and seriously it's almost every dream where there's a gun fight, I'm getting stabbed or shot, I'm killing people..usually the bad guy, or fighting off a demon. And I am also a super laid back person. Maybe we just get it all out in our dreams. I mean...I see myself being an insane badass in some ways. :) I'm an artist and we all know I'm not going to be a spy or an fbi agent anytime soon. So I just dream about it.

violent dreams, with thrashing, kicking, flailing, falling out of bed, etc is an indicator of neurologic disease, and can precede by a decade or more the more obvious symptoms of brain disease. See a neurologist.

I've been having very violent dreams too, though only every once in a while. No strange beasts though. Just humans. Very scary stuff.

I know how you feel. For some reason i've been having violent and scary dreams. None of them involve beasts, just human but death is always involved in all of them. It's really starting to worry me
