knife Dream Meaning and Dream Interpretation

To dream about knife explained:

Dreams about knives may suggest that there is something in your life that needs to be cut out you may need to cut ties or sever a relationship with someone or a habit or negative behavior needs to be stopped or ‘cut out’.

A knife is symbolic of frustration, rage and negative feelings. The dream means that you need to separate yourself and cut away from things in your life that is causing you distress. It could be a relationship, negative situation or a bad habit that you need to cut out of your life. If you are cut by a knife it is a negative dream symbol. Did anyone cut you or did you cut yourself? Dreaming of being cut means that you are going to be harmed in some way and depending on who cut you represents who is going to do the harming. If the knife is dull, then it signifies all your efforts to succeed would be unfruitful and serve no purpose in the end. Alternatively it indicates that you are unable to cut off whatever you are trying to get rid of in your life because you are not being harsh enough.

Dreaming about a lost knife, whether you were intending to use it at that moment or not, suggests you find sexual activities to be a chore or an obligation rather than something to be enjoyed. You may have some intimacy issues or are experiencing a lack of drive due to worry, stress, and fatigue. For a male who experiences this vision, it can be interpreted as a sign that they tend to view women as objects for sex instead of full human beings, which inhibits their ability to relax or act normally in a public or social setting. If this symbol is seen in a dream vision, you may want to make changes to your routine and habits in order to improve your interaction with the opposite gender.

Having a dream where you are unsuccessfully trying to use a dull knife is a message from your subconscious. This message suggests that it is time to grow up and behave more maturely because the world does not revolve around you. If you are currently concerned about a project or endeavor you are working on, envisioning a dull knife may also represent needing to let go of inhibiting fears and doubts which may be holding you back from reaching your full potential.

Dreaming about a beautifully designed, special knife is often interpreted as a sign that you are soon to receive a gift from someone. This is likely to come from out of nowhere, and you may find it to be a pleasant surprise that this person was thinking about you. However, this person's generosity may not be completely without ulterior motives. They may have some other plans in the works which may work out better for them if they have your cooperation or goodwill.
