Dream meaning: Fight

To dream that you engage in a fight may reflect conflict in real life – with friends, family, or co-workers.  Fighting could also symbolize an internal conflict, such as a moral dilemma – conscience battling against selfish desire, for example. There are other types of inner conflicts as well, such as tensions between opposing personality traits, such as your masculine and feminine sides, emotion and intellect.

Dreams involving fighting with someone close to you may reflect unresolved anger toward that person.

If, in your dream, you are unable to fight or feel weak – for example you try to punch or strike your opponent but you have no strength, it may reflect feelings of helplessness.  Perhaps you lack confidence in your ability to overcome the conflict reflected in your dream.

    I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the American dream – one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed, “We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal.” I have a dream…

    I had a dream I made friends and we attacked the people that had been so horrible to me in my childhood years. Also all I was wearing was a big white t shirt? Lol, I had given my old classmates a chance to be forgiven and they destroyed a drawing I made when I was a child that was the last thing that made me happy😣 The classmates are real people but that’s the only thing that was

  • Ivan // Feb 15, 2016 at 10:26 pm

    I have dreams like this all the time. The most recent one was when i was at home and I got a phone call from a random person. They kidnapped a person dear in my life and said that I had to meet them somewhere. I did and they challenged me to a fight, which I agreed to. I ended up trying to throw a swing but was too weak to do any real damage, at that moment I tried running but was too weak to run too. I ended up finding some old plates and tried throwing it at them but again I couldn’t pull the strength to. Not sure the real meaning behind it but the dream started to get strange because at that point he turned into a blue baby dinosaur, which ended the fight and dream. Dream happens at least once every 3-4 months.

  • Ash // Oct 30, 2015 at 2:33 am

    I constantly dream my younger sister angering me. She frustrates me in my dreams and disrespects me, which in real life never happens. Last night i dreamt her angering me and when i was threatening her she spat on me! This made me furious! I didnt hit her in the dream it was like i couldn’t. I was only threatning and she would completely disregard my threats and spit anyway. In previous dreams its usually the same, me not bwing able to fight or making her respect me or simply “winning”. The weird part is as i said, in real life its the exact opposite. Never in a million years she would act this way with me. I’ve always wondered why her? And why does she act this way in my dream? And why can’t i fight!?

    I had a dream where I’m at my school and I get into a fight with a bully who really is a bully at my school and I’m punching him and when ever he tries to punch me I dodge and punch after I don’t know what this means I’ve had it two nights in a row and each time I win.

  • Andrew // Mar 6, 2015 at 5:12 am

    I’m at a childhood complex where i first smoked marijuana. I’m trying to get in to get rest but the current locals are refusing me access because they feel I’m fake and should undergo a heart check. I try avoiding the confrontation by running and at every point of entry a new person is waiting. Well i come to the conclusion the more i run the more people i will attract to whom want to hurt me. So i wind up back at the first entrance and tthe initial person repeats to me i have to prove to him and his people I’m tough or else. Sho i walk myself into a corner and commence. My only swing its comically caught and twisted exposing my ribs which are painfully stricken. The next in line laugh at me. I immediately awaken in a child sweat still feeling the pain in my ribs.

  • Dave // Jan 12, 2015 at 7:45 am

    I had a dream last night about me and a friend (who I barely see/talk to) on a bus. As the ride goes on 2-3 people take my stuff and I tried to get it back with no avail. After we all got off the bus my friend helps me fight those people who stole from me. we get it back with ease and then we took a test.

    I’m confused and happy.

    I had a dream I was with my group of friends and we was meeting my best friend Abby in a hotel, when we was about to go to an elevator I heard Abby scream and when the elevator opened Abby had a stab wound in her head, she was laying crookedly on the floor dead with her eyes wide open in fright and blood was everywhere, on the walls, floor, mirror and there was no murder in sight just Abby. Then I ran to Abby breaking down crying and my group of friends ran called the police and I woke up. It felt so real .___. I had to Skype her to see if she actually was still alive. What do you think of this?

  • Cassidy // Nov 22, 2014 at 9:24 am

    I had a dream that my little brother and I got into an argument and he ended up getting me grounded; well I was sent outside to clean the yard and my neighbor asked me to watch their baby. (The baby was in a newborn type of car seat.) and I said sure and they just went on and on about how much they hate their child and they even tried to run it over but I pulled it out and took it home and put it to sleep. Then I went back outside and my little brother started talking crap so I chased him through my house and ended up pushing him down in the hallway and I ran back outside carrying a fly swatter; I heard him open up the knife drawer and then he came outside and swung at me with the knife; I told him to put it down and he swung again. Missed again; I tried to hit the knife out of his hand with the fly swatter and he stabbed me in the other hand with it then ran inside and locked me out. After bleeding on the front porch for a while he let me inside and I ran to my mom and told her he had stabbed me and it was bleeding bad and she said oh wow; make sure you put that knife back into the right sink. I asked her to take me to the ER and she laughed in my face. I bled out and died. What does this mean? Just typing it I feel like it means I don’t feel like my parents care, but I’m on sure. Please help.

  • Anthony // Sep 26, 2014 at 4:56 am

    I had a dream that my girlfriend had brought another guy to my house to hang out and by the end of this situation I was convinced she was cheating on me with him, and he was subliminally rubbing it in my face, so I was walking downstairs when I decided to punch my wall (something Ive done occasionally before, when I am way more upset than usual.), but my punches are going slow, and don’t do much damage to the wall. This only made me more upset as I noticed I couldn’t take my anger out on flimsy sheetrock, so I struck harder. I was able to cause a good but of damage but my punches were still moving like I was in a slow-motion scene in an action movie and I couldn’t express the full strength I wanted to(i.e. feeling really weak still)

  • Dishika // Aug 28, 2014 at 7:46 am

    I had a dream last night that my boyfriend was at my house and this girl that drops him off from work in real-life but in my dream he was cheating with her so she came over for some money and she demanded him to give her a 100 than 20 but I told him no he didn’t listen to me and gave her a 100 so I fought her until I saw blood and I took the.money back and start fighting him to. But the funniest thing is that I never saw this girl in person.

  • Nicole // Aug 11, 2014 at 7:02 am

    I’m pregnant in real life but not in my dream. My whole family takes a cruise to Alaska where the ship get wrecked in icebergs. No one to comes to save us. And I have to fight a man who resembles a lumberjack to get the cabin that is dry for my family. Surprisingly I am very quick and use my anger to beat his sorry ass!! I throw things at his face with perfect accuracy and break his arm and fingers all while talking smack. We all wind up getting saved and then sit around the kitchen table reveling of my victory. It was a great dream.

  • DM // Jul 28, 2014 at 5:12 am

    I dreamed my girlfriend was standing by a guy’s car discussing her relationship with me, explaining why she was not seeing him. Ince i arrived at the place they were at, i begin questioning my girlfriend about why she’s standing answering yes and no questions. Then i begin pointing in the guy’s face because he continued questioning. Then i shoved him and pushed him away, threatening him also to stay away or else.

  • kayleigh // Jul 1, 2014 at 8:39 am

    I had a dream that my boyfriend cheated on me with one of his friends & he wouldn’t admit it even though her bra was in his bed. I kept trying to hit him and everytime I would try to smack him it would feel as though there was a small space between my hand and his face, I couldn’t slap him. I remember it being so frustrating. And then I woke up.

  • Jane // Jun 19, 2014 at 9:53 am

    In my dream I was driving a woman that needed help and my little sister. I stopped at a park dont know why and a woman she was big took my ipod. I punched her so she gave it to her daughter. Her daughter was being interviewed by a cop. I punched her daughter too but every time I did it felt weak. Then my cousin called and woke me up.

  • Anu // Jun 1, 2014 at 9:11 pm

    I usually have a dream of fighting with my Grandfather who has deceived my Father and Mother. I see that I have an aggressive discussion with him and then I fight with him, asking him why he deceived my mother and father. I seem to cry a lot and pledge for justice every time.

  • danica // Apr 27, 2014 at 12:05 am

    I have dreams a lot where I go to throw a punch and I get about 3 cm away from their face and it feels like something is stopping me like a forcefield is pushing me back and everyone else in the background is laughing at me. Its quite frightening and I also have the losing teeth dreams.

  • Sofia // Feb 22, 2014 at 5:26 pm

    I dreamed about the fighting between my father and any ex-colleague. I and my father was returning back from the temple in the mid of our way, my colleague started teasing and misbehaving with me my father noticed that started yelling and quarreling with him. Suddenly he slapped my father and beaten up him brutally and I was literally crying that what to do because that boy was well built, then he took my father on the courtyard of that shop which was resembling like the same shop that is still present today at my grandfather’s place that is far away from here. Then I followed them and pleaded to leave my father. After sometime that boy got tired and sat above on his knees and I tightly slapped him again and again. Then his mother was also standing there and was also crying I caught her up from her collar and beaten her up till like he did with my father. His mother was saying,’ kill me please I deserve this’. and suddenly I woke up by listening that phrase exactly at 5:07am and my heart beats were running seamlessly…. But I exactly not getting the exact meaning of this dream as my father is also a well built man and also I have no link with my ex- colleague. 🙁

  • Valerie // Jan 23, 2014 at 2:23 am

    My partner dreamt that he and his brother got beat up. It’s really playing on his mind as he never remembers his dreams.

  • Tapita // Dec 25, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    I had three little dreams in one night but they all had parts where I hit people. They probably hit me too, but I didn’t feel any of it.

    I just dreamed that I was at training early in the morning but I had arrived a bit too early, and I decided to go for a walk. While I was walking I came across a bunch of people who recognised who I was. Some of them were familiar faces that attend the same school I did but I had no association with them whatsoever.

    Then I dreamed that some weirdo was annoying me. I had no idea who he was but the more I hurt him, the more he came back for more. Later one of my bestfriends and I took my anger out on her and I hit her, but I told her why I was soo angry. She cried and I felt really bad. Told her I was sorry and she understood why I was soo mad.

    Then at the end I saw the same bunch of kids at a dairy because I was told to grab a lolly and a bottle of water to make me feel better. I got angry again. But I knew one of the girls and everyone had negative views on me apart from her.

    What does this mean exactly?

  • Jastavia // Oct 2, 2013 at 11:52 pm

    I had a dream my bf proposed to me and I accepted. Then we ended up at someones house with my brother I think and a friend of his and my brothers girlfriend and they were smoking weed while me and my fiance were just chillin’. Then some young girls walked in. I say young because they didn’t look no older than 16 or 17 years of age and I’m in my 40’s. One of the young ladies was telling us about a wedding or some other gathering that was going to take place somewhere soon and she, I guess wanted us to come or something. Anyway, as she was talking she kept eye balling me like she had a problem with me or something, but I wasn’t really sure and besides she’s a kid under me so I dismissed it. However, my fiance and I were getting up to leave and the girl started mouthing off at me saying something like “you think you’re better than us” who do you think you are” and some other stuff. I just looked at her and said something sarcastic and she was immediately ticked off and started taking her jacket off and earrings like she was ready to fight. I turned and looked at everyone in the room, then turned around again to face her because she was still running her mouth and getting up in my face. And as soon as I raised my hand in gesture to tell her something, she started hitting me and I just grabbed her and told her to stop, then asked her what is she so upset about? But she would never say. So I held her until she was tired of fighting and her friends finally told her lets go or something to that effect, then I told my fiance, my brother, his friend and my brothers girlfriend to get up because we are leaving. By the time we got the door to leave, this girls whole family was coming in the door to see who was fighting this girl. I knew the people who were coming in the door and that was even more puzzling, because I didn’t know the young lady was the grandaughter of a guy I was seeing that attacked me not too long ago. Anyhow, they asked what happened and I told them, she wanted to fight as soon as she came in the door and thought it was me she wanted to fight, but found out real quickly that it wasn’t. I also told them, that she must be festering some anger inside of her towards someone else, because I didn’t know her and hadn’t said anything to her and I didn’t hit her, but I wasn’t going to let her hit me either, so I held her til she was tired of fighting. But little did I know, she all of sudden ended up with a black eye or something and they wanted to know how she got it. I said she probably had one of her friends do that just to get something started. Desparate times calls for desperate measures. For some reason the dream ended there. I didn’t understand it either.

  • Exydus // Sep 28, 2013 at 11:55 am

    Well, honestli, this helps a lot. I have issues with my friends where I realli want a break from them, I want to be alone for a while but I’m always around them. I want to tell them but don’t know how. I feel horrible about it. I know that while doing so, I’ve hurt some feelings, and somehow betrayed them. ‘conscience battling against selfish desire’…..

  • Ryan // Sep 21, 2013 at 4:09 am

    Well I dreamed that I, my best friends Jon, and Eddie were following a kid that I know from 9th grade named Troy(he is a reallllly popular kid). He was touching a girls area that he should not of been touching, I have a disorder were my personality changes so I don’t remember the rest, I just have deep anger for this kid. I woke up at 6:25 with a dream in my head so I grab my journal and started writing: Eddie, Jon, Troy, and I got off a bus and entered a parking garage, we took the elevator up and all I was think was I need to beat this kid [troy] up. We see an old man in the elevator with us ride to the second floor, than we get tithe too floor and enter his home. His house has a fridge connecting a kitchen to a living room. Than he has a bedroom which we all entered, that is when the fighting started. I punched him in the mouth and no realizing, it did not leave a mark or anything. He than pulled out a pocket knife and Me, Eddie, and Jon ran out of his home into the dark parking garage and his in a dark turn, Troy saw us and charged at us, we ran back into his house as he followed I ran into his room agian and he tried to hit me but it went threw me, adrenaline was pumping and I stole the knife from him and I ran down the parking garage and as I got to the 2nd floor the old man sat in a chair by the elevator and he smiled at me as I ran down, I got to ground level and the dream ended.

  • Lilly // Jul 2, 2013 at 7:52 pm

    I always have dreams where I am fighting in some way, mostly physical. In my most recent dream, I am punching someone in the face with my fists violently after being taunted by that person. When I am restrained, I repeat the taunts that were spoken to me. I look at my hands and see that they aren’t bruised. I look at the person’s face and there is no damage. I feel severely dismayed, that my best couldn’t produce any discoloration or blood. Although, I can tell the person is immobile and in pain.

  • jenny // Jun 28, 2013 at 2:13 pm

    In my dream its just me and a girl i dont know just fighting. She she robbed my clothes from me and ran and when I ran behind her I caught her and started hitting her. But it didn’t do much. But I did get my clothes back. Then out of nowhere, I was fighting a boy, and a boy I used to talk to was there, just sitting down doing nothing. After a while, me and the guy I was fighting started crying and I said it’s not right for a guy to hit a girl. 😛

  • Callie // Jun 25, 2013 at 8:45 pm

    I often have these fighting dreams….usually when i try to throw punches they come out slow and hard to complete, and only end up annoying/amusing the opponent. However, I have found that although fist throws don’t work, elbow swings do. I always start going ham with elbow jabs and always win 😀 This isn’t completely harmless though….most of the time I wake up beating the deuce out my wall and end up having sore elbows in the morning….lol.

  • DS // May 23, 2013 at 10:48 am

    I dreamt and I was seriously fighting my own younger brother at our house. I realised that is not good to fight. Therefore I stopped throwing blows and started to cry. I told my brother is not good for us to fight and he too stopped.

  • Danny // Feb 10, 2013 at 6:35 am

    I remember lots of dreams like this, for example one was that, A thief robbed our house and I woke up to find him stealing. So then I wanted to strangle him and all I could feel was just….. nothing. That strangle did nothing, as well as any of my punches.

  • Sam // Feb 2, 2013 at 10:12 pm

    I keep on having very similar dreams where I have to save this one person by fighting off the bad guys who want this person. In one of ’em, I fight a dragon and the person is on the bus trying to get away from the dragon and then I save them and it always ends with me holding their hand. I always wake up after I hold their hand though :/

  • Tanya // Jan 25, 2013 at 5:01 am

    My dream started as I climbed up the stairs, some kids people were making fun of my weight and one started to pick a fight. I didn’t have the energy to fight back at first.. But I did a little later and fought the girl off and eventually chasing her away and running after her.. When I turned around there was a guy trying to fight me too.. But as I tried to swing he held me in a lock and that’s when I woke up

  • leo // Jan 14, 2013 at 10:42 am

    I dreamt that I was walking in a mall, and for some reason it was in the 40s era. In this dream I went around beating bullies. I was walking around the mall with some friends and then one of them points to a guy and says “that guy beat up his girlfriend” so I immediately rush the guy and beat him till hes nearly dead and say “this is what your girl felt like”. There were more fights like that of me beating helpless bullies, like they had no power couldnt even fight back. I even beat a guy who was hanging out with a girl I liked in my dream.

  • Angie // Dec 30, 2012 at 8:58 am

    I had a dream i was listening to a band at my dads restaurant and I started singing it louloud. Some girl from my school randomly says “Angie, STFU”, so then I said, First off you didn’t have to be disrespectful, and she gets up to me and tries to fight me…
    So I said OK you look really immature. Then she got into a fighting stance. So then I said “You know what, lets go.” As I try to punch her, I cant feel anything and no one is moving. It’s like I couldn’t even punch! And a bunch of confusion just went through my head .. And as I try again.. I wake up.

  • peter // Nov 2, 2012 at 4:29 am

    had this dream that I was sitting on a park bench then 2-3 girls came past me. Then I noticed I was getting the piss taken out of me so I challenged them about it. Then one girl shoved her fist right in my face, told me to get lost Or i fight her. So I took her offer up. We both went somewhere quiet. We then held our fists up and started to fight. She was a bit taller than me so I thought if I can get her down I may have a chance. I took the chance to punch her hard in the stomach. She buckled. I then got hold of her, wrestled her to the floor, and I got on top. Then with two punches to her face, she gave in. Only to find out it was my pillow I was beating.

  • Brod // Oct 14, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    I always dream of those people who bullied me when i was a kid. In my dreams I’m always in a fight with them but when I punch them its either a miss or a powerless punch.. I hate having these kinds of dream. Feel like a hopeless person. Even in my dreams i cannot defend myself…

  • julia // Aug 25, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    About 2 nights ago I had a dream I was fighting with someone. But i didnt know who. it was my best friend’s friend.
    We were fighting ferociously. Before I could find out who won, I woke up!

  • brandon // May 28, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    I have been having some wierd dreams. A couple nights ago I dreamed that me and my cousin were in a room with an insurgent. He had a gun and then he told my cousin and I to kill eachother. We both had knives, so my first action was toward the insurgent, but then he drew the gun on me again so then I asked him what would happen if we both dropped our knives, he said then he would kill us. So my cousin and I fought, he almost stabbed me, then I slammed my knife deep into his kidney and I gently laid him down even though he was still trying to kill me. All I remember after that is sadness, but the insurgent was gone.

  • Angel // Apr 20, 2012 at 8:34 am

    Last night I had a dream that i Was at a dance competition that was held at a club. Two drunk girls started messing with me so I started fighting with both of them.. Then I go into an elevator to get to the restroom and they follow me. Still messing with me. I ignore them. As I’m getting out to go into a stall, one girl pushes in front of me to get in.. I start grabbing her hair and literally threw her across the restroom. I lock the door and start peeing. The girl crawls under the stall and fights with me. I tell her to get out or I’m going to pee on her.. She doesnt so I pee on her face.. Then I take her head apart from her body and kick it into another stall. Once I go back downstairs..I’m lost. Someone tells me where I have to go put I can’t find it..I’m walking around anxious and lost..Does this mean anything or is it just a weird dream? lol

  • Pietro // Apr 7, 2012 at 11:37 am

    yesterday i had a dream that i had fought two faceless men with long hair that just made their faces obscure. one just dropped at my glare. which made no sense. but the other one. he knocked me down and kicked my head. but i managed to get up. i grabbed his hair and started kneeing him in the face. it appeared as i had inflicted no damage at all. i had hit him about 10 times with my knee. when i let go. he just dropped. im assuming he. or it k.o’d and then blood just started flowing into the puddle he landed in. then i woke up.

  • Tali // Apr 4, 2012 at 1:00 pm

    Last night, I had a dream where me and this person I lost an argument with a few months back were having an insane fight. I was hitting him with all my might, I even threw him off a third story ledge at some point in the dream. No matter what I did, he’d just shrug it off and either attack me back or insult me.

  • Luke // Apr 2, 2012 at 1:03 am

    I have this reoccurring dream that I’m punching my dad repeatedly with as much force and energy I have but he is completely unharmed. He actually stares at me with a blank face as I continue to strike him. It’s so frustrating and entirely confusing. I have no current problems with my dad, we actually have a pretty good relationship. Yet I often have this dream. What the hell does it mean???

  • Natasha // Sep 18, 2011 at 2:36 am

    Many times I have seen that dream of not having strength when I went to beat some person with all my power by trying again and again and couldn’t hit him. Every time I see that happening in my dream, thogh, I find other ways to hurt my opponents. Most of the time I stab them or I throw big things at them or trap them. In the end I always win, I don’t understand how I am lacking confidence.

    I’ve had that dream before – when you try to punch someone, and as soon as your fist gets near where you’re trying to hit them, it goes in some weird slow motion. It’s like repelling magnets. I think it means, if you know the person you are hitting, that you either feel inferior to them for some reason or you might just feel helpless about something. If it’s someone you don’t know, that symbolizes that you’re feeling weak. It doesn’t mean you actually are weak.

    I’ve also been having weird dreams about killing people and hurting them in scary ways. I was really freaked out that maybe I had mental problems, but I found out it’s actually alright to dream like that, because it’s a healthy way of releasing frustration and anger by acting out how you feel in your dream. For example you might be frustrated about someone in work or school and then you have a dream that you beat them up LOL. It makes you feel better about yourself and it means you don’t have to do it in real life.

    I had a dream last night like this.
    I hate them because I know in real life I could knock them out in 1 or 2 shots, yet I punch my hardest and it barely phases them. I usually have 3 or 4 people attacking me at once. Sometimes I get stabbed up and crap. It’s pretty scary.

    I had this dream that a girl I know and have conflict with approaches me. She then pulls my hair resulting in myself hitting her and winning the fight. Later on I had a similar dream, the fight went exactly the same way but the scenario was different. What does this mean?

    I just had this dream where a guy wanted to fight me (fist fight) so we did, multiple times. It got to the point where i hurt him so much that one of his friends told me to leave him alone, I saw what they meant by it. So I did. Now that I am awake, when looking back I feel bad for doing it to this person, even if it was only a dream

    My dad had a dream that he and his best friend had a argument nothing physical, and they ended the friendship. He’s pretty worried, so any help would be appreciated.

    I had a dream where 4 guys were fighting over me. One I know and like in real life and ended up going out with in my dream. One was Jacob Black from Twilight. Another was Edward from Twilight. The last was some kid named Cody who was my boyfriend at the start of the dream. I hung out with Ed more than my boyfriend in the dream.

    I’ve had the same dream every night for the past two weeks. It’s about me hitting a guy in my school until he gives up. Then in the dream I choke him until his face turns blue. Then I just let go and help him up. It’s really weird and it happens every night.

  • Elizabeth // Jan 21, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I had a dream, That this guy I used to talk to, well I liked him, but in return he did not like me back. Now we don’t even talk. But In my dream I’m fighting for him, telling him to come back to me, and in my dream, he comes with me. We just have to fight this girl that he’s with now.

  • mz // Jan 19, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    I keep on having this dream where I walk into my school angry and start fighting many girls at once. But in the end I end up winning the fight.

  • samantha // Jan 4, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    I keep dreaming that I’m punching someone with all my strength and it’s not hurting and they are laughing at me. This dream happened often but I don’t know who the person is that I’m punching.

  • steve // Dec 15, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    OMG thank you! A couple of years ago I had a childhood bully. He never hurt me physically, though I would have many dreams about me becoming enraged and punching him, but he would only laugh at my attempts, which would only anger me more and bring me to tears. I always wondered why I could never beat him in my dream.

  • Alex // Dec 1, 2010 at 12:59 am

    I’ve had several dreams with mother in the last couple of weeks. In one she is held hostage and forgives her attackers whereas I call the police confront them and eventually kill both attackers. The recent one is that she is cheating on my father with a hideous person. I’m telling her that he is unfaithful and can give her an STD. He then starts to fight me and I’m able to drag him and pick him up but when I punch him directly it has little effect on him.

    I figured the dream meant I felt helpless about something but I have no idea what. And what does my mother have to do with it? Any help will be appreciated!

  • Emily M. // Nov 20, 2010 at 12:03 am

    I have had the same dream several times recently. Much like everyone on here, I am punching an unknown person as hard as I can and with a lot of anger but my punches dont phase them and I feel weak. After researching this dream, I feel this is due to the possibiltiy of me being promoted soon to a much higher position at work but I have fears that I wont do it well. It’s nothing I have talked about but sub-concsious feels I have doubt and concerns about this situation. I believe its a sign of weakness and uncertainty.

  • Jose // Aug 23, 2010 at 11:16 am

    I’ve had that dream also, where I punch but have slow motion punches and the other person hits me but I have no affect on them.

  • Jocelin // Aug 13, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    I’ve had 9 or 8 dreams about fighting a girl at school that I dislike. But everytime I try to hit her my punch goes in slow motion and she doesn’t feel anything. Its wierd because I’ve been having these dreams one after another.

  • vicky // Jul 29, 2010 at 5:01 pm

    I dream that im punching my mum really hard in the face with all my strenghth but she cant feel it and it doesn’t affect her at all and I can tell she is enjoying watching me get more upset and angry with her.

  • Alex // Jun 16, 2010 at 6:25 am

    I keep having this dream about fighting with my friend. But it’s very serious. Instead of being weak, I’m actually really strong and always the one that wins.

  • Mike // Apr 28, 2010 at 2:35 pm

    I have that same thing in my dreams – I engage in a fight and it has little or no affect on them. I’ve always wondered what that symbolizes.

  • emily // Jan 11, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    For me, I feel so angry in my dreams that all I want to do is hurt the other person–badly. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t even touch them. It’s like two magnets repelling each other, and the other person ends up smirking then laughing at me (which only makes me even more angry). So then, I usually wake up with this horribly intense anger, which sometimes lasts through the rest of the day.

  • Vickie // Nov 16, 2009 at 8:07 pm

    I keep having different dreams about fighting. The first one was me fighting this girl I didn’t know. We ended up stabbing each other up, but I stabbed her so much that she had to stop. Plus, I started feeling like I didn’t want to fight anymore. The second was about me and my little brother fighting together against a whole bunch of people. When the fight ended and my little brother called his people’s to come and retaliate, everyone scattered.

  • peter // Oct 27, 2009 at 3:14 am

    I also dream this lol, my last dream of this was last night. It’s normally men I fight but this 1 was a girl I know, but this time she was fightin back and I was defendin my self with high kicks, blockin her punches, something I would never ever do in real life lol. Also when I found my self punchin her I was usin the inner part of my fists, like the thumb and index finger part .. very very wierd. But mostly they don’t fight back and I cant even punch, sometimes when I land a punch, my fists kinda slip off their face .. so wierd, hate them

  • Blake // Oct 20, 2009 at 8:15 am

    I had this dream last night that, although it was a different setting where the fight took place, the same sort of thing keeps happening. In my dream I kept seeing this guy that would be stealing stuff from other people, just a creepy guy with no exact face. But finally after a lot of debate, I saw him under a bridge with all this stolen stuff and jumped on him and put him in a headlock and either knocked him out or killed him.

  • aaron // Oct 15, 2009 at 6:02 pm

    i keep having this dream where im in a physical fight with my best mate outside my girlfriend’s mothers shop…each time i strike a fist at this guy there is absolutly no effect what so ever..asif i missed…but i didnt

  • Nikki // Oct 6, 2009 at 9:56 pm

    Im fighting someone, not anyone close to me, but I can’t tell who it is. This is a reoccuring dream. When i’m fighting I am giving it my all, but my punches keep coming out very weak, and I become frustated and try harder and harder, but nothing works. I don’t know why they’re not fighting back, its almost like they enjoy watching me fail, or they just don’t notice how hard I’m trying

  • Laura // Sep 17, 2009 at 3:01 pm

    I just had a dream where I was fighting with a friend of mine, we ended up in a physical fist fight and somehow both of us walked away from it as if nothing happened. I woke up confused and stressed out because the fight was over something very little and petty

  • Braulio // Jul 27, 2009 at 4:39 am

    I have the same exact dreams as you guys. At least 3 or 4 times a week. That I’m in a fight and no matter how hard I try, my punches are extremely weak. I hate having this dream =[

  • Michael // Jun 13, 2009 at 10:17 pm

    My Gosh, this exactly the same dream ive had so many times. In my dream I want to hit the other guy so bad ….it kinda makes me feel anxious, but no matter how much I try, my punches are weak. Like the first user, stated, “I try to hit them but I am so weak that it barely grazes them. Like I’m under water, or in quicksand – really slowed down, and I am giving all of my strength to hurt them but I cannot”. I often awake agitated and feeling kinda useless? I hate this dream. God I wish i would stop having it…
    Thanks guys for sharing, makes me think maybe the dream isn’t a sign of something wrong or lacking in me.

  • philly // May 25, 2009 at 6:58 am

    I am having the exact same reoccurring dream as the other two. In it I am always in some fight and I go to throw a fist and it does nothing.
    Weird eh?

  • Loren // May 15, 2009 at 6:19 am

    I also have a recurring dream of fighting with little force behind my punches as if I am weak. It started after a brutal fight in real life, also I began taking boxing lessons. The dream occurs at least once a week as well.

  • Sian // Feb 25, 2009 at 9:32 pm
