  1. I have seen my sister’s little girl arm amputated in my dream and i also tried to hurt myself too after that in the dream itself to feel the same pain.
    I tried to cry real hard in the dream , seeing her like that but it wasn’t possible and then i woke up being miserable.
    What does it mean??
    Does this dream signify anything?

    Thanks and regards

  2. I dreamt that my aunt voluntarily asked me to amputate her legs..i used a sword to do it. No blood was in the dream..once she saw her legs were gone..she began panicking feeling like she still had them.

  3. I dreamed my son got stuck in a tree but my son looked younger. Then my husband ripped the tree apart and with the branch so did his hand. There was no blood. And he said dont worry it will grow back.

  4. I had a dream about a woman that I had met. She was missing her left arm. I was aware that she was missing an arm, but it was not a bother to me, nor did I think of it much. What I was feeling during the dream was my love for this woman and the fact that I felt very comfortable with her and that I had known her my whole life. I do not know this person in my walking life, but of course I did in the dream.

    Any thoughts?
