What does it mean when you dream about beheading?

A dream of being beheaded may indicate traumatic memories about bad judgments and wrong decisions made by the dreamer. The head symbolizes the intellect, so beheading can also represent alienation from feelings or from one’s own body. (See also Decapitation, Guillotine).
