What does it mean when you dream about killing?

The act of killing in a dream need not be negative. As we grow and change, it often feels like we are “killing off’ old parts of our life. Alternatively, killing in a dream may mean that one has murdered the incentive or enthusiasm for life. (See also Murder).
