In the 1800s, sexual dreams were considered to be a great source of worry to the men and women who had them because, at the time, sexual dreams were thought to cause mental and physical illness. It is, however, over-simplistic to describe all sexual dreams as a form of frustration or wish-fulfillment. The desire to have sex is a healthy human urge and your dreams allow you to give free reign to this urge as well as to indulge in all kinds of erotic experiments in which no emotional or physical harm is inflicted upon any one.
If you do wake up from a dream in which you have had sex with someone inappropriate or that contains graphic, disturbing or violent imagery, there is most likely to be a nonsexual interpretation. However, if you do find the dream distressing and it repeatedly recurs, be sure to seek professional counseling. Unless your erotic dreams are seriously disturbing (when psychiatric help should be sought), there is no reason why you should not enjoy them like any other fantasy.... The Element Encyclopedia

Unable or unwilling to speak, a silent witness in your dreams represents an area in your life in which you are not expressing yourself. According to Jung, favoring the intellect over your emotions or vice versa can make you speechless and unable to communicate fully and openly with other people. The only way to create intimacy in your life is to find a better balance. In dreams, twins or mirror images of a figure often represent two aspects of your personality.
If they are not identical, they suggest conflict between your inner and your outer realities.
If they are identical, they are a sign of inner harmony.... The Element Encyclopedia

If you watch a murder, this refers to aspects of yourself that have been denied expression.
If you are running from a murder in your dream, it depicts something you feel threatened by in waking life.
If you are the murderer, this may express intense emotional hurt towards someone, typically parents; the murder itself will be a symbol of the killing of the emotional bond or a warning that you are on an emotional ‘knife’s edge’. Dreams in which you kill someone may also point towards an internal conflict, especially if you harbor no ill will towards your dream victim in real life, or indeed if they were a stranger or an animal.
If someone provoked you into killing them in your dream, this may tell you what it is about yourself that you need to kill off. Animals symbolize aspects of your instinctual nature in dreams, so if you killed a cat, dog or any other animal in your dream, ask yourself what that animal represents within you.
If someone is trying to kill you in your dream, your unconscious may be alerting you not to a physical threat but to a real emotional or professional threat that someone poses to you.
If you were unable to identify the dream killer, your unconscious may have been suggesting to you that you are being victimized in waking life by a person, a group or an organization.
Dreams in which you are choking or strangled suggest conflict or indecision, as when you choke on your words. They can also suggest repressed emotions, or emotions or memories struggling to be recognized. Because it is associated with the element of water, drowning indicates a sense of being overwhelmed by difficult emotions or problems.
If the symbol of the guillotine appears in your dream, you may be afraid of losing self-control or of losing contact with a part of yourself or someone you value. The guillotine also represents severance of some kind, so what is it that you need to cut out of your life? If someone is poisoned in your dream, this refers to attitudes, thoughts and behavior patterns that are not good for you.
If you commit suicide in dreams, it may depict a sense of hopelessness; perhaps you have been working too hard lately and haven’t been taking care of your health. Or do you feel a desire to retreat from life’s problems or suffer from feelings of failure? It may also be a sign of repressed anger concerning relationships or business.
If someone else is committing suicide in your dream, this could be a sign that you want them out of your life.... The Element Encyclopedia
