Have you ever wondered why zombies would make their appearance in your dreams?
Unless you’re playing Call of Duty: Zombies on PlayStation all night I wouldn’t worry about the dream too much. Though zombies actually contains a very symbolic meaning that embodies a plethora of different interpretations. One thing we do know is that killing a zombie in your dream represents a change or conscious shift in one’s life.
Zombie Dream Meaning
These brain-oriented flesh eating monsters deliver an important metaphorical message warning the dreamer about something inhuman in human form. Zombies in dreams represent the people who have a decreased levels of dopamine in prefrontal cortex.
In fact you might know a couple of zombies in your life. You know the ones who are controlled by limited beliefs, unconscious behaviors, addictions or urges… Maybe you had a glimpse of these fools trample over an old lady to save 15% on a flat screen T.V during a black Friday sale.
Wait….before you go it is quite possible that the zombie might be you!
#1. Zombie Dreams: Binge Eating
One dead give away (no pun intended) is the fact that zombies are unable to defend themselves against harm. There lack of self-preservation in pursuit of consumption suggests these are the people that will kill themselves for one particular thing. Brains.
Their insatiable craving for just one object might mirrors something in your life that you are possessed by. Could the zombie encourage the dreamer to reflect on their health? Do you ever eat harmful foods that might put you in a diabetic coma?
#2. Zombie Dream Meaning: Addictions
Zombies may even appear in your dreams if you or people you know that are consumed mainly by their addictions. Whether it be an alcoholic, heroine addict, pot head, or someone addicted to meth their movements are strikingly similar to a zombie.
Could your dream is hinting at your own personal addictions, or perhaps the people you surround yourself with? Alternately, you might even look at society on a whole especially if you live in the States due to its recent drug epidemic.
#3. Zombie Dreams: Consumerism
Question: When your phone becomes outdated do you just by a brand new one? Maybe you are the one that constantly craves to be on top of the latest trend to make others jealous. If you are one of those people who have a strong desire to obtain the latest toy then it is quite possible the zombie might attack you in your dream.
#4. Zombie Dreams: Cell Phones
Is cell phone addiction a real thing? Yes, it’s real. And it’s worse than you think. A poll in 2017 tallied up the average time someone spends on their phone and it was alarming – a whopping 2 hour and 50 seconds staring directly at a screen.
Are you one of these people or the ones how absolutely hate the fact everybody nowadays is stuck on their phone. Do you see society being programmed by social media companies just to get you hooked (eating brains) so you come back for more? Zombies and people on cell phones are unable to converse, get in the way of you walking, bad drivers, and lacking awareness.
#5. Lacking Spiritual Awareness
Could the zombies in your dream represent the people you surround yourself with who lack any sort of spiritual grounding? Since zombies are devoid of a soul could it reflect a need to search for enlightenment in a sea of emptiness?
