The meaning of Dismemberment in dream | Dream interpretation
1- Dismemberment of the body, or indeed any dream where some type of fragmentation takes place, is largely to do with being rendered powrerless.
A situation may be tearing us apart and violent action may be necessary Before we can recover our equilibrium.
2- Psychologically we need to take our old feelings and ideas apart to make sense of what is going on. This process has to take place before a rebuilding of one’s life can happen.
3- The death and rebirth symbolism of initiation; the death of the Self before reintegration and rebirth.
1. Feeling a loss of control over situation or problem (as in “everything is falling apart”).
2. Feeling great loss, usually over an aspect of self or personality.
3. Note body parts that are lost: loss of mobility (loss of legs) or dexterity (loss of hands or ﬁngers), etc.
The fear of a family breaking up, or a romantic attachment being severed, is sometimes warned of by the dream of dismemberment, which means a breaking up.
If you sometimes feel your live is coming apart at the seams, then this too will occasion a dismemberment dream. As in olden mythology, when man fell apart, the Gods would put him back together again, this then is a dream of warning you to change your ways, or take charge of a situation, before it reaches the dismemberment stage.
Dismemberment is a very ancient and widespread motif in initiation, especially in shamanistic initiation, in which one is taken apart and put back together in a renewed, improved form.
If the experience does not feel unpleasant during a dream, dismemberment may well indicate the closing of one phase of life and rebirth into a new phase.
If accompanied by strong emotions of fear and anxiety, dismemberment may simply reflect a feeling of “coming apart.”
Dismemberment of the body, or indeed any dream where some type of fragmentation takes place, is largely to do with being rendered powerless.
It is the death, or rather dissolution, of the self before reintegration and rebirth take place.
Psychological / emotional perspective: Psychologically we need to take our old feelings and ideas apart to make sense of what is going on. This process has to take place before we can rebuild our lives.
Material aspects: A situation may be tearing us apart and drastic action may be necessary before we can recover our equilibrium.
