Blood dreams often seem frightening, but it is actually a good dream about opening to your power to feel. Red is a color associated with getting our attention and blood appears in dreams when we need a wake up call to interact with life more deeply. When you see blood on yourself in a dream, it is an image of your free flowing life force breaking through emotional restraints as feelings coming to the surface. At the same time, it can sometimes signify pain associated with feelings. The theme of the dream will tell you which is taking place.
To see blood on someone or something else reflects how you have disassociated from your feelings, objectively exploring emotion in an abstract way. Blood can represent the blood line of family, or sometimes work, for those who work in the healthcare profession. See blood under Anatomy and Body Parts.
