    I have dreams all of the time where a person who seems to just be a random person turns to me with a pocket knife gets in my face and starts cutting me sharp, quick little slices all over and I end up with my own knife or razor cutting them back but I can never hurt the other person.

    I had a dream that someone was chasing me. But, I couldn’t see who it was. This happens at least 2 times a month!

    I had a dream that I was in a store with knives on display in the aisles. I had someone chasing me throwing knives at me as if it were a game; who could hit who first. I managed to dodge about 5 knives that were thrown at me when I grabbed a knife on the ground and ended up nailing the person in the back that was chasing me. ~ if anyone has an interpretation let me know

    In my dream I was surrounded by a dozen women with pocket knives in their hands. We all were moving around threatening each other. Nobody was hurt. We just got exhausted and thrown knives on the floor. The women were looking for something very precious that was hidden and they believed I knew the hidden place. I did know that place but did not tell them, only offered to stop the fight.

    I my dream I was in a apartment and somebody was DETERMINED to kill me. I couldn’t see their face or even tell male or female because the face was so dark, covered with a hood. Their weapon was a knife. I’m fighting them and they were just trying their hardest to kill me so I kicked them towards the door and the door swung open to where they lost their balance and fell over the balcony. So I ran over to see if they broke their neck falling, because it was a long drop down. Not even 3 seconds later the person zoomed up the stairs, ran up to my face and slit my throat and I died. This killer was DETERMINED to kill me. Idky but it seemed sooo real.

    I saw myself in a dream being attacked by a group of people who appeared like soldiers. They threw a knife at me and it caught me in my chest. I had a gun and I tried to shoot at them but there was no bullet.
    I ran and later removed the knife from my chest and flung it back at one of the them and took the knife I had beside me and threw that back at them, and suddenly woke up.

    In my dream, I was out in public and this boy who I’ve been hanging out with took a knife that belonged to my other friend and started cutting me all over
    my body. He was laughing and acting the same way he dowager when he’s high, but in the dream he was sober, and people just stood around and watched him hurt me. Then as I was laying there I died and woke up.

    I dreamed I was at a friend’s house and someone walked up and stuck a knife right below my belt line and stabbed me. It didn’t kill me, I just had a wound with stitches. My friend says that it may be the fact Im afraid of having a miscarriage and thinks I’m pregnant now. So I have no idea what it means, but it seemed so real that when I woke up I checked to see if the stitches were there.

    I dreamed I was walking in the forest and on the forest floor were these chopping blades. I was barefoot and had to carefully step over them. I never did get hurt.

    I dreamed I was laying in bed and at the edge of the bed were hands with all sorts of knives trying to cut me and I couldn’t wake up from the dream.
