    I dreamed that my thumb was cut off along with a section of my palm(just the area around my thumb like a circle).the cut off thumb was clean. There was no blood or pain just surprised it was cut. I was holding it and rejoined it after pressing it for a few seconds. It came off again but i held it again and then the skin got attached and after a min or two i looked at it and there was a scar along the entire cut area but it was healing well. Also, i had showed it to my parents when i first attached it n my dad tried to scratch the cut open (like when u see the edge of cello tape and try to remove it) i cried because it hurt that was the only time it hurt tho. So yeah after that it healed well with the scar and stuff. What does this mean?

    I had a dream that I was cutting my boy’s left hand 4 fingers and left the thumb??? And that would benefit him, then I picked them up in my hand horrified of what I’ve done

  • Rena // Apr 19, 2014 at 11:04 pm

    I dreamed that a machine cut off my big toe, but no blood came out and i didn’t feel any pain. What could really be the meaning of this dream? Funny enough, I am never bothered by dreams, but this one has been replaying back in my mind since yesterday night.

  • sophie // May 20, 2013 at 7:04 am

    I had a dream that my little finger from my right hand removed itself and rejoined my left hand next to my other little finger, it then had two blisters on. one of the blisters had a flat swirly disc on and the other had a flat sqaure on. I then asked a lady i was with what was happening? She told me that my little finger had become detached and was drawn to my nearest pregnant finger? Its really freaking me out. what does it mean?

  • Jessica // Apr 21, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    I had a dream that I was at this party and there was tons of cut off fingers and hands in a pile. I had to find a demons finger and once I found it I cut off the demons finger and stole the rings on it. The rings had white and green diamonds on them. And the demons finger was a normal looking woman’s finger with red nail polish on it…what does this mean?!

  • Laura // Mar 17, 2013 at 3:35 am

    Last night I deamt that the point finger of my left hand (I’m a righty) was cut clean off. But I was ok with it and was living a normal life. Someone noticed that I was missing a finger and asked if I wanted to take this magic potion that would restore my finger overnight but I had to sacrifice (something that I can’t recall now). But in my dream the sacrifice was worth it so I bought the potion which turned out to be a series of pills with very complicated instructions that if I messed up would make the potion ineffective. In the end, I was successful and 24hrs later, my finger grew back. Weird dream!!!!

  • Rhonda // Oct 21, 2012 at 3:51 pm

    I had a dream some time ago that both my wedding fingers rotted of my hands. I really don’t what these mean and i have frequent dreams of my teeth rotting out also then my mom trys to make me go to school with my rotten teeth.

  • arianne // Jul 4, 2012 at 3:16 am

    Last night I dreamed that my baby’s ring and thumb finger got cut but there was no blood. What does this dream mean?

  • Marie // Jun 11, 2012 at 10:33 am

    Last night I had a dream that the tips of my middle and ring finger got cut off. And my husband left me. Then a lady asked me what happened to my fingers & I started crying tears of blood. I then woke up
    But I wanna know what it means.

  • sarah // Feb 19, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    In my dream, I sliced my pinkey, ring, and middle fingers smooth off, but just the fingertips.

  • Jen // Feb 1, 2012 at 6:13 am

    Last night I dreamed I cut all my fingers off halfway…at a slant for some reason. It didn’t hurt but I knew I’d regret it. Later in the dream they came back.

  • Nicole // Jan 21, 2012 at 2:54 am

    I had a dream a few nights ago that I cut all the tips of my fingers off and then after that I had a dream that a turtle bit my finger off.. Weird.

  • Michelle // Dec 7, 2011 at 6:17 am

    I had a dream where I was afraid that my hands were going to make me do bad things, so I started cutting the fingers off my left hand one by one, starting from the easiest one to the hardest. I only got through 3 of them, and the pain was excruciating. Some dream figure made me prosthetic fingers that twisted on, but that only made the pain worse. I woke up when I started trying to cut off the last two…

  • Omar // Oct 30, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    I had a dream that my ring finger was hurt, so I chopped it clean off. I did it because my friend in my dream told me the finger would grow back…

  • Kat // Aug 17, 2011 at 7:04 am

    I dreamed I was supposed to be doing some kind of landscaping/farm work for the neighbours I grew up with who had a small produce farm. But instead I started pulling my fingers apart at the middle knuckle and trying to keep them in order in my lap to put back on later. I was surprised at how easy it was and why I hadn’t thought of it before (I’m a chronic knuckle-popper.)

    But then I started stressing out because my bosses were irritated that the lawn mowing wasn’t getting done and there would be many customers soon. So I was trying to reattach the fingers all but it was difficult and I mixed up a few of the fingers so they were in the wrong place so I had to remove them and swap them around again.

    I’m doubly concerned about this dream because the night before I dreamed there were maggots on the floor of a movie theatre and I was trying to fly over them.

  • wendy // Jul 24, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    I had a dream my husband was over (we’ve been separated for 9 months) and he was talking away…I can’t remember what he was saying, and the whole time he was talking I kept messing with my finger (my pointer finger.) It had a blister on it about the size of a half dime. The blister was not on the side where the nail was but on the skin part tip of finger.

    So my husband went to go toward the bathroom and he said, “Do you have a needle a pin or something so I can pop this blister?” I looked up and said, “What!?” He said he had a blister on his finger. “See,” he said and I said, “Wow you’re kidding, right?” and I showed him my blister. We both had a blister on the same finger – our pointer finger.

  • cherry // May 22, 2011 at 5:36 pm

    I dreamed I cut my pinkie finger. I cut it with a pair of scissors. I didn’t see much blood nor feel any pain. I cut it two times. It’s like I just sliced an eggplant. After I cut my pinkie finger I decided to put it back together, but it was hard so I got a little cloth and wrapped it around my pinkie finger to put it back to normal.

  • sireen // Apr 5, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    I dreamed I took pair of scissors and cut my 4 fingers off then thought maybe I shouldn’t have done that and picked them up and squeezed them back on … hoping they’d stick. So what in the world could that mean? I thought maybe identity lost? Because it was only the top half below fingernail…

  • Anabee // Mar 29, 2011 at 5:58 am

    I just had a dream where I started growing a hand on the back of my head, the only part of the hand that was fully grown out was a big ugly finger with a finger nail. Once people started finding out (including family) they were all after me to kill me. But in trying to defend myself I realized I had some type of super human strength.

    It was a crazy dream, please let me know what it could mean! At first I could only feel the finger and fingernail but towards the end I was able to see it, it looked deformed and huge.

  • Kacy // Mar 22, 2011 at 12:36 pm

    I dreamed last night that I pulled a bone out of my finger. It looked like a a white bridge; a wooden bridge(like one you would see in the jungle). I dont really know how to describe it. Anyways, I pulled it out, and it had a piece of cartlidge attatched in one place. My cousin told me that since that peice of cartlidge broke off a poison could be released into my body, and I could die. I immediatley began praying I would not die.

  • Samantha // Mar 10, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    I had a dream last night that I was in my grandparents hallway upstairs and I was just cutting my own fingers off, I was cutting my arms and just chopping my fingers clean off with a saw. What could this mean?

  • Paul // Mar 4, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    I dreamt that I was at work and for whatever reason I was examining my hands. I noticed that I had six fingers, but that the extra finger and my ring finger were attached up to the first knuckle and then it split off into two. The thickness of the finger was as two, they were just fuzed. I mentioned to a co-worker if they had ever noticed this about their hand and they showed their hand it was the same. They just said “Wow, that is interesting, I have never noticed that”. Then I woke up and immediately looked at my hand to find that it was normal.

  • marian // Jan 14, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Last night I dreamed that I was sleeping & I noticed that there was something painful in my index finger. So I wake up and see what is it. But when I saw what is happening to my hand I was scared because I noticed that my index fingernail was removed. I wondered why there was no blood coming out, so I’m worried. Until I woke up this morning and I looked at my finger I thought it was true. I’m thankful that all is fine. But still wondering what it could mean.

  • Mark // Oct 25, 2010 at 1:51 am

    Every night for the last 5 weeks I have been dreaming about people trying to kill me. It’s never the same people or place and they use fists, knives and guns. It doesn’t matter how many times they shoot, stab or whatever they can’t seem to kill me. Now it’s the same thing when I fight back I can’t kill any of them. But last night the dream went to the next level. They realized they couldn’t kill me so they pinned me down and cut off my hands and feet. I am very curious to know what this means. Can anyone help?

  • Justin // Oct 22, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    i was sleeping and i dreamt of me holding a knife and slowly sliting/poking the tip of my fingers and watching blood pour out.

    when i woke up there was only one slit on my finger and i read in many books that its about love and im sure its about my love [Angel] :]

  • Patty // Sep 23, 2010 at 1:01 am

    I dreamt I was looking at my left hand and all the fingernails were faces, with hair and they were talking to each other. Except the thumb which was facing away from the others, and couldn’t speak. I wasn’t puzzled or upset by this, although I felt so alone and very upset. I tried to get my sister to help me, but she just looked at me blankly. Then My brother in law came home and asked if I wanted to hear a story and I said yes! and went to him and curled up like a baby on the seat next to him, and put my head on his knee. I felt safer there.

  • jane // Jul 19, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    “In my dream last night. I cut a piece of my skin on my finger using a nail-cutter. Funny even though I am trying to look for remedy I just let it bleed and bleed. And the next thing I know there wasn’t any trace of blood at all on my finger.”

    As I search in the web, It happens to be an unrequited love from a friend. Maybe I really do miss the person but somehow I try to ignore the feelings.

  • Sam // Jul 15, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    Last night i had a dream were my finger was sliced pretty bad as the skin was almost peeling off. It wasn’t bleeding though and i don’t know how it happened, but once i realized it, i ran to my father and asked him to take me to the hospital. He refused and tried to sew up my finger himself. when he failed, i pleaded again, but again he ignored me. Later i proceeded to tear off the top layer of my finger, almost as if it were a glove or something…underneath was a normal sized, still injured thumb covered in some sticky material. next i skipped to my friend dying and coming back as a ghost that only i and a few other friends could see. I was upset with her death and stormed off to find comfort in another friend. my mother followed me, i wanted her to leave, but she followed me for a while before i woke up. what could any of that mean?

  • Steve // Jun 14, 2010 at 11:09 pm

    I dreamed that my thumb was nearly cut off but it wasn’t bleeding at all and I couldn’t figure out how it happened. I asked my dad why it was like this but he couldn’t help.

  • Hina // May 27, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    I seen my husband makes a holes in my right hand fingers and its start bleeding I then wake-up (wake-up in dream not in reality) and found no one around me.

  • Jo // Apr 16, 2010 at 1:59 am

    Last night I dreamed I cut off all my fingers (only half of each finger) one by one. The reason behind it appeared to be vanity, I suddenly decided my fingers were too long and awkward and made a snap decision to just cut them down. There was no pain or blood at all, except with the last thumb, which I was having difficulty sawing through with the knife I was using. After I had thrown out all my fingers, I looked in the mirror and y hands looked horribly deformed and I regretted my decision but realized it was now one I had to live with, and I would get used to the way they look eventually.

  • liz // Feb 21, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Last night I had a dream about being in class. My friend noticed that I was bleeding from my hands. So she looked at them and said my rings had cut my knuckles. But my rings were far apart from my knuckles. So I’m trying to figure out how they got cut. &&. What does it mean?

  • Dan // Dec 30, 2009 at 7:21 am

    I dreamt I was in the kitchen of the old house I grew up in. I don’t remember exactly how this happened but my left index finger was chopped into 2 pieces, one right behind the nail and the other at the next joint.

    I started freaking out and ran to my father but he was working on something in a corner and didn’t care saying something like “so what” My mother says something like “O well what are ya gonna do ?” I asked for someone to call an ambulance or take me to a hospital but my mom says it’s not that serious. I notice my left thumb is also missing now and the pieces keep falling out of my hand. I keep washing them to keep sterile and when I put the pieces back together and press really really hard I am able to move the fingers. This makes me determined to find help.

    I shout at my mother to take me to a hospital and she says thats impossible because “We are still in outer space.” I am dumbfounded and look around and I am still in my house. She says “ Why do you think you do not feel pain? There are no alarms going off.” I realize she is right and that I was freaking out at the idea of loosing my fingers and that that was not reality. She tells me we are in a program designed to mimic reality while we hibernate on a trip through outer space. I ask if my hand is really ok and she says yes. I say I want to see for myself. She says that is not possible. I say Oh Yea? And then start to will myself awake. I wake up in my bed. My hand is fine.

  • Jo // Dec 17, 2009 at 6:47 pm

    Last night I dreamt that I cut my pinky finger off, diced it up and put it in my dinner salad. Then i got mad because I might need it later.

  • Gina // Aug 28, 2009 at 3:25 pm

    I had a dream that while I was fasting to prepare for a journey to the underworld I was putting something on my finger nails that was clear and rubbery. It was like a protective coating. Then I cut them short (the nails) and buffed them so they looked manicured. They were clean when I began the process.
    anyone have any idea what this means

  • Michy // Aug 27, 2009 at 11:38 pm

    I dreamt the my index finger was cut off and I was so nonchalant about it. I actually tossed it off to a bench. The thing is it was not just the finger. There was also a small piece of raw meat, which I ‘tasted’ in my dream and then also tossed onto the bench. Weird huh???

  • Mari // Aug 10, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    I dreamt a male acquaintance’s left pinky finger was bluntly cut off. Kind of messy, and he really wasn’t keeping it clean. I remember being concerned he was going to get infections. Frightening, but he kept functioning normally.

  • Dina // Mar 31, 2009 at 11:30 pm

    My dream, well, it disturbed me.

    First, I don’t know why, but I was staring at my hand. I noticed that the skin was almost removed and I could see through my hand, I could see through the skin and see the bones, and for some reason my hand also looked like bread. Almost like it was rotting or something, nooo idea what it means though.

  • Maria // Jan 22, 2009 at 9:58 pm

    I dreamt about a wall that was blistering with water, then dreamt of a blister on my finger.

  • Anto // Dec 13, 2008 at 7:12 am

    I dreamed I saw my left hand index finger, having 3 hairs growing up from the top of the finger more and more, non stop. When I ask for some one to give me scissor to cut hair out. I just wake-up. What could that mean?

  • JazzyJean // Nov 4, 2008 at 2:08 am

    I saw wounds on both parts of my hands – in my fingers to be exact. There were knife- like cuts that never oozed blood from my fingers. In the darkness of that room where I saw my hands clasped to each other, I wondered where I got them. They didn’t feel painful though but the marks of the wounds with the blood staying in place, not a drip,or moreover ooze was so vivid even as I write now.

    And then came my mother who said “Look at mine, worse than yours.” In my dream, I saw her left finger with a huge cut (no blood oozing but static along the skin cuts) and she showed me that I can even see her bone in that finger! Suddenly, at the corner of my left eye, in that dark room we were in, a candle lit and illuminated the room.

    What a dream!

  • ZAHRA // Oct 11, 2008 at 12:52 am

    Last night, I dreamed my father showed me his fingers, and it seemed that something sharp from the inner part of body had cut them. Because of my surprise, my father explained that this had happed to many of my fingers several times. Something from the inner part of body makes my fingers cut and scar.

  • Angel // Jul 14, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    This dream may not get the prize for “gross-ness” but it may get the prize for most disturbing.

    I had a dream where I allowed someone to remove a part of my index finger. I even asked them to make sure it’s numbed down so that I wouldn’t feel anything. So they take a scalpel and slowly start to cut through my finger, all the while I’m staring at the whole process, slightly nostalgic in the end about the part of my index finger that will never grow back. Interestingly enough, I don’t remember any blood.

    I wish I knew what happened to the part of my finger that was cut off. Maybe I’ll find out in another dream sometime in the future.

  • Maria // Jun 25, 2008 at 12:03 am


    Funny, last night I saw a dream that was close to yours. I started to pull my left hand index finger and it just came of and I could see inside the “hole” where the bones are supposed to be. I was not scared, I just noticed that I could still use my hand. Then my whole hand started to itch and felt strange. Another finger came off, like falling teeth they fell to the floor. And then I looked my hand again and I noticed that there were new fingers growing from the hand. I just followed this strange happening and then I started to wonder if all this would happen to my other hand, and of course it started just then. It felt like this dream was really long and at the end I had completely new fingers, they did not look entirely the same as the old ones, but they were as pretty or as ugly as my old fingers. Well on my right hand there were actually six fingers, but I was still happy 😀

  • Sarah // Jun 10, 2008 at 9:45 am

    Okay, so in my dream, my middle finger wasn’t cut off clean but close to that. I saw that there was callus on it, like when I was really young when I used to hold my pens tight. Anyway, this was sort of an all around callus, and my finger was getting rid of the callus because I could lift if off like it was scab. The gross thing is, part of it hasn’t “dried” yet, but I still tried to pull it to see how much will be taken off, then I realize I was already seeing my bones. GROSS!! So I panicked and stopped, then I realized, I could pull off the fingertip and reveal bone, and I panicked. I did not play with it any more, then I saw that instead of having three parts on my finger, I have five. So basically, I was growed two parts to replace the injured top of my fingers.

    That’s why I said it’s not cut clean because it’s just injured, plus there’s a replacement, like I was regenerating. What could that mean?
