Wounded Leg

The other night I had a dream that I couldn't get out of my mind. I was hoping you could help me with it. 

I had a dream that my leg had a really, really bad cut on the back of it. I had stitches in my leg that were very fair apart and barely holding my leg together. It had puss coming out of it and I was telling everyone that I couldn't go to work. I was very disturbed in my sleep, but not really upset about my leg. I also remember in my dream saying that I couldn't believe that a dog could do that much damage to my leg. So I'm guessing a dog did it. The cut was disgusting and it keeps flashing in my mind. Could you please help me out. 

Thank you,

Hi Laurie,

Generally, the leg relates to the balance in your life and your ability to navigate through life. And to dream that your leg is wounded in some way suggests that you are preoccupied with the path your life is taking. Perhaps it is your career path that you are concerned about. In you dream account, you had mentioned how you couldn't go to work and that a dog had caused this horrific injury to your leg. The dog may symbolize the ruthless nature of the business world. It's a dog eat dog world. You may feel that you are being hindered in the pursuit of your goals. The stitches in your legs signify you willingness and determination to press forward, but the notion that the stitches are far apart and puss is spilling out suggest that other forces in your life are causing you to slow down. And as a result you are barely able to keep up with your goals.

Best Regards,


Laurie's Response:

Thank you for your help. It does explain a little bit about what is going on in my life. I'm in the middle of a hard, trying relationship, that is pretty much on the outs. Because of what I'm going through, I have had a hard time at my job, and not working to the best of my ability. Thank you for taking the time to explain the dream to me.
