To dream of persecution represents your feelings of being unwelcome or singled out. You may feel that people never want to care about you again because of your different beliefs or opinions. Feelings about being abused or picked on without any way to rationally or reasonably defend yourself. Feeling that you have no choice other than to put up with abuse. Persecution may be a sign that you need to stand up for yourself more.
To dream that you are persecuting others may reflect your jealousy or that you’re looking for a way to redirect blame.
Example: A woman dreamed of being persecuted. In waking life she was the victim of sexual abuse and nobody believed her. She felt she had to put up with the abuse no matter how bad it got.
