What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you think about blood? For many of us, the first thing we think of will be scenes from horror movies. Blood is connected with accidents and wounds. However, when we think about it, blood is what flows through the veins of every human. We can also think of it in terms of life force or family bonds (think of the saying “blood is thicker than water”).
But what does it mean when you dream about blood? Well, it could be connected to all of the things we mentioned above. In addition, blood in dreams can also be a symbol of deep love, strong emotions, and destiny.

Detailed Interpretation of Blood in Dreams
Most dream dictionaries say that seeing blood in a dream is a positive sign. Blood as a symbol is usually connected with love and passion, just like the color red. Love is the energy of life. Even though bleeding is often connected with injuries, we must remember that blood only comes from that which lives, hece blood is the symbol of life.
In addition, we might connect blood to fate and things that are certain. You might have heard of the expression – ‘it is written in blood’, meaning that something is bound to happen. ‘Blood’, figuratively, is what connects us to our ancestors and our kin. Hence, blood is also a symbol of stability and tradition.
When interpreting your dream about love, it makes sense to consider where the blood came from. As we have already mentioned, if it is you who is bleeding this is more often than not a positive sign although it can be scary. It is quite common that the interpretations of dreams are actually counter-intuitive.
When you see someone else bleeding it could be a sign of difficulties ahead, especially on the spiritual level. This dream is often telling you that you should take better care of yourself. You should think about who the person that was bleeding in the dream was. Was this person important to you? What are the first things that come to mind when you think of them? The person who was bleeding in the dream might actually represent a part of yourself. It is this part that needs healing and care.
The Menstrual Cycle Dream Meaning
A common theme in dreams that involve blood (especially in women) is the menstrual cycle. Sometimes, we might dream of a tampon or sanitary pad covered in blood, or perhaps one might see menstrual blood on underwear. The message of these dreams is usually that there is no need to worry. You might be anxious about something, but there is no real threat. You just need to calm down. If you are having some conflict with your family, this is a sign that all will be over soon and peace will be established.
Blood Transfusion Dream Meaning
Some of the more interesting dreams about blood are dreams about a blood transfusion. These dreams have a meaning that’s a bit different than just seeing blood. Dreaming about a transfusion usually indicates some dramatic change.
A transfusion usually saves a person with the help of someone else’s blood. The message of this dream is that you might come close to the edge in waking life, literally or metaphorically. However, the transfusion also indicates you will be saved by a helping hand.
Some dream dictionaries also say that dreaming of a blood transfusion means you will reach new heights spiritually.
Blood On The Ground Dream Meaning
Seeing blood on the ground in a dream is another powerful symbol. This is not always a positive sign, though. You should be wary about your surroundings. The dream might also be telling you to be cautious about any new friendships you make.
Blood On Hands Dream Meaning
If, in your dream, you have seen blood on your hands, rejoice! It’s a very positive omen. Yes, seeing blood on your hands (see also Hands Dream Meaning) might feel disturbing but actually it is a very positive sign in dreams, indicating luck.
