2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of hitting an object or person may be a manifestation of repressed aggression, a Freudian 'return of the repressed', where the unconscious mind seeks to express what the conscious mind suppresses.

Taking that analysis a bit deeper... It could symbolize a struggle with the 'Id', the primal part of our psyche that houses our basic drives. Conversely, dreams of being hit may reflect a sense of victimhood or perceived threats from the 'external world', a projection of the 'Super-ego', the moralistic part of our psyche that deals with societal rules. These dreams may be a call to reconcile the 'Id' and 'Super-ego' with the 'Ego', the realistic part that mediates between the two, to achieve psychological balance.

Dreaming about hitting something or someone can be a spiritual signal that you are grappling with unexpressed anger or frustration. It's a spiritual release of suppressed emotions, a call from your soul to acknowledge these feelings and seek resolution. Conversely, dreaming about being hit by something or someone can be a spiritual message of feeling under attack or overwhelmed. It's a spiritual cry for help, a plea from your soul to seek protection and balance. Both scenarios are spiritual wake-up calls, urging you to confront these issues head-on, to seek inner peace and harmony. They are spiritual invitations to embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing.
