Dream 464: I am worried about the move and the effect on family

My son had a dream zombies were after us and trying kill us. They were setting everything on fire. He had a dream of killing and blood. We got away.  It was a very scary dream for a little guy whom has never seen a zombie movie.

Interpretation

Zombies in dreams usually represent depression because that is how we feel when we are very depressed, like “the living dead” (zombies.) My guess would be that it probably is more of a fear of depression or fear of change (fire) involving the family (blood relationships.)

Fire represents change because it changes matter into energy. Blood can refer to relatives by blood or close family. The dreamer’s mother later told me that the family was moving to a new home.

It sounds like he is worried about changes the move will cause which are stressors that usually amplify conflicts temporarily ( which is why their is killing and blood symbolizing conflict involving blood relatives. Hopefully the move goes well and he finds himself in a better situation after the move, all my best…
