Dream Interpretation: Vampires

What is Dream Interpretation?

It is assigning meaning to dreams, meaning using what one dreams of and the symbols, objects and events of the dream to relate them to the psychological, emotional and sometimes spiritual state of the dreamer. Some use it as a way to divine and predict the future while others use it to help assess their emotional states and subconscious thoughts they may be ignoring in waking life.

Specific Dream Situations

Following/Watching You: Often, when a vampire is following or stalking you in a dream they represent an aspect of yourself that you feel is parasitic and negative to who you are. They may also represent a person who you feel has been draining you and are exhausting to be around. If the vampire also takes on the appearance of a specific person you know in your waking life then it may mean that specific person is starting to drain you of your patience and are getting on your nerves.To Be a Vampire: To be or become a vampire in your dream represents a selfish need to use or feed off of others in your waking life. You may also be overly dependent on a friend, family member or significant other and are subconsciously aware of it.Being Bitten or Fed Off of: You currently feel like others are using you and you feel very much helpless to it. You may also feel trapped in a relationship that is“sucking the life out of you”.Original/Traditional Vampires: Seeing a more horrific and bat like vampire in your dreams indicates something very distressing is going on in your life and it is negatively affecting you. Some psychologists link these dreams to people who are sickly or unwell. There also seems to be a common pattern of dreamers with heart problems/illnesses dreaming of nightmarish vampires.Sexy“Modern” Vampires: The dreamer currently desires more in their love and/or sex life. It is feeling bland and lack-luster to you right now and honestly, you are feeling bored.Being Chased by Several Vampires: You are fighting some major force in your life and its very stressful. The situation itself may be scaring you more than you’d like to admit. You may feel like you are losing the battle as well, and that your failure is“catching up to you”.Falling in Love with a Vampire: This dream is very common but often means you are thinking romantically about someone and you are still on a subconscious level are trying to figure it out.Intercourse/Kissing a Vampire: You are feeling sexually stifled and even neglected. This dream is very common after break-ups.Killing or Hunting Vampires: You are overcoming your dependence on someone and are finally confronting your problems/flaws.Dracula: To dream specifically about Dracula means there is a person you are intimidated by that is making more of a presence in your life than before and it is very upsetting to you.

Divination

For a long time it was believed dreaming about a vampire in the traditional sense was an omen of doom and disaster and likely tragedy.

In some cultures dreaming of a vampire was similar to that of dreaming of a demon (especially for religious cultures) meaning something evil is at play. Modernly, dreaming about vampires in the modern sense or romantically may allude to a relationship to come or a new‘mysterious person’ to enter your life.
