What Does It Mean When You Dream About Blood?

Bloody Hands

Blood is essential in our bodies because it’s the sole factor for surviving. Without blood, we cannot live. Fundamentally anything which affects the blood affects the whole body, too. When we refer to religion and spiritual realms, blood is used for making covenants and agreements. In witchcraft, blood must also supposedly be involved.

Generally, blood represents a sense of existence and energy. In family bonds and connections or inherited traits, we relate them with blood. That is the reason when people do certain things they say “it’s in my blood”, meaning that family bonds include weakness or strength in character.

Blood is a universal symbol of power and life, thus linking with humanity. During the ancient period, blood was the first ritual sacrament in times of significant events in one’s life, such as birth. Blood was regarded as the determinant of character and spirit of life. Blood is linked with personalities and unconscious forces within.


These days, when we find blood in someone’s clothes or on the ground, we automatically conclude that someone is dead or is hurt. Blood on the earth suggests a death, great battle, or deep wounding; the blood marks the event and acts as a sign of the act or a memorial.

In adverse cultural settings like Macedonian culture where symbols predicted bad and good luck, dark blood signified bad luck while light blood implied good luck.
