To dream of an execution represents a deliberate elimination of some area of your life. It may also reflect your feelings of having to wait for an inevitable failure. A crucial deadline. Dreading an ending or consequences for an unforgivable action. An untreatable illness.
To dream of being executed represents your feelings about being deliberately eliminated from a situation. You may feel like you are on the “chopping block” of life, like there is a lot at stake, or are fearing failure. Fearing being fired from a job for poor performance. Fear of not meeting an important deadline. Feeling cut off or that your life is hopelessly failed.
Example: A woman dreamed of waiting for her execution. In waking life she was stuck in an unhappy marriage and felt that waiting or hoping for a solution would inevitably waste her life. She felt that by choosing to stay in her marriage she was potentially “killing off” she chances for future happiness.
Example 2: A man dreamed of waiting to be executed. In waking life he was dying of cancer. He feared he could die the next day.
Example 3: A man dreamed of fearing the possibility of being executed. In waking life he was very sensitive about performing well at work and fearing losing his job if he didn’t.
Example 4: A woman dreamed of watching someone being executed. In waking life she couldn’t pay her water bill and was fearing the inevitable moment when the city water department would shut her water off.
Example 5: A woman dreamed of a baby being ordered to be executed. In waking life she was having second thoughts about a relationship she had started and felt it may be best to coldly end it.
