What do vampires in dreams mean?

In honor of Halloween – another spooky term!


Universal Landscape:  Drain of life force.

Dreaming Lens:  Were you the vampire or was the vampire someone else?  Was the vampire a stranger and a figure of mystery?  Was the vampire someone you know from life?  Were you the intended victim?  Were you trying to save someone from a vampire?  Were you bitten?  What was the level of danger, intrigue or sexual stimulation?

Personal Focus:  Vampires are creatures of death that survive by drinking the blood of the living.  Blood represents passion and life force.  A vampire in your dreams represents some aspect of your personality or way of being that has the potential to drain you of your vibrancy and energy.

Because vampires can only move about freely at night, they are in the symbolic realm of the shadow.  This indicates that whatever issues are robbing you of your vitality are hidden from your conscious awareness and must be examined with this in mind.  What we keep in the shadow are parts of ourselves that we can’t accept and have difficulty integrating into our personal identity.  Not doing so can suck the life force out of us until we face what we are resisting.

Often portrayed as sexy or seductive, consider that the vampire may represent a situation or person in your life that seemed alluring at first, but is now exhausting or depleting.  As a character aspect of your personality, there may be some habit, behavior or emotional trait that is literally sucking you dry.  Since vampires cast no reflection in a mirror, this may be a part of you that you may be unable or unwilling to see directly.

We often feel drained by responsibilities and the things we think we should be doing.  You may want to become more aware of those things you are attached to in a negative way.  Holding on to old attitudes and beliefs can be draining.  Consider that it can be just as draining to avoid responsibilities that are legitimately yours.  It is the ignorant victim who foolishly leaves the window open and unwittingly invites the vampire to visit.  Other internal vampires include neediness, self-doubt, lack of forgiveness and judgments.  All of these kill passion for life.  Commit to emotional healing and your vampires will return to the grave where they belong.

    What does it mean when you are having the greatest sex in the world with a vampire not once but three different times and then have sex with another female vampire and they bite me and turn me into a vampire.

(In real life we stopped talking a month ago, but we always stare at each other.)Then we had to go kill em because they were harming people. but before we did I was with rosales we talked and he say he still loves me , but Priscilla s( my enemy)Is helping him forget about Me. I told him I loved him I always had and we just kiss. Then we had to kill em. But memo (my ex)was the captain of the vampires. We killed them all except Rosales(guy I like) and he came to normal when I told him . ” I wanna be with you, I’m not. Ganna leave Im in love with you. “

    Hi, I have a situation here that I am a vampire, I was afraid to hurt my family so I consult to a guy. He was mid age man, he seems the one of coven member of a mate in my dream. I asked him about how I control my thirst so that I can’t hurt my family. Then flash images that I drink my sisters blood. Then I fly away from my family with this man. when I woke up I felt that I flew in the sky last night. Can you help me to figure it out thanks.

    I have this dream I am a vampire then I was saving a vampire also we both keep on running in the forest it was gloomy that time, until we stood up in a cliff. Under the cliff is a deep water or ocean. I saw her she was hanging in the cliff. I try to pull her. When I pull her I was separated from the scene I was behind the trees then she she was floating then the waves starting to hit the cliff. She look at me like grinning. I run again away I felt someone was following. That’s what I remember in my dream. Help me to figure this out thank you

    I had a dream about at least seven vampires. In my dream there were three main. Two seductive females and one male that seemed to turn people into vampires. For some reason they were after my nine month old and I was constantly protecting her and so was her father. At some point the females tried to seduce him and when he rejected they forced him and then He turned into one but he was still consumed with protecting us. There was always one guy that turned into a woman helping us. I have no clue to make sense out of this.

    I had a dream where I was not sure if I was the vampire or just observing the situation. The central person in the dream was a vampire and had a small group of 2 or 3 that were also vampires that were loyal to the person. But there were others that tricked the central vampire into turning them into vampires for the purpose of having a strong pack of them that do what ever they wanted because the were powerful and have the central vampire as the patriarch. But he wanted no part of it and with the small group that felt the same secretly left to escape them. Later they come to what looks like a prison camp that has people in it that are ware wolves that are enslaved and the central vamp and his small group seek to rescue them. I should add that I don’t have a group around me like that. I spend most of my time alone and have no love life to speak of and im not in a hurry to be in a relationship. I like being single.

    I dreamed about a guy my schoolmate I guess? because I saw him at our campus. During the dream I know his face was familiar,but now I can’t remember him. He wore blue shirt a pants and a shoulder bag. He smiled at me then suddenly grab my neck and did bite me( actually it didn’t hurt) and I can’t remember if he left or stayed. There’s no blood that came out and I’m confused because vampire usually wore black and a cape but this guy isn’t creepy, he’s a simple guy.
