Shield، To dream of a shield represents mental, or emotional protection. It symbolizes thoughts or habits that protect you, keep you away from trouble, or provide self-defense. You may be vulnerable, trying to preserve yourself or resisting negativity in some manner. Deflecting arguments or withstanding an attack. Fending something off. Defending yourself from criticism. Feeling that someone is attacking you personally.
If you see an evil or bad person with a shield this symbolizes negative thinking patterns or situations that are difficult to overcome. You may have bad habits, or personality flaws that are difficult to give up. You might also be dealing with a difficult person or situation that is resisting you. Alternatively, it may reflect defense of your own bad habits or bad intentions.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing a shield being placed over his wife’s belly. In waking life his wife had just given birth and he was very protective of her by keeping people away from her while he recovered.
Example 2: A woman dreamed of needing to shield herself from being splashed with blood from a girl who had committed suicide in real life. In waking life she was trying to emotionally shield herself from depression and thinking of suicide.
