What are possible meanings for dreams of deformation?
Think of deformity in a dream as a physical representation of something askew, out of kilter, or misunderstood.
It can mean something is not right. Think: “distorted.”
Deformity can reflect a distorted self-image, especially if a mirror is involved. See: Mirror
It can symbolize excessive self-criticism.
It can symbolize severe issues with body image, or show self-loathing, heavy guilt, or shame.
Deformity can be a way of visualizing an undeveloped aspect of yourself, or something about yourself that’s repressed, ignored, or disrupting your development or creativity. Creations are formed, so deformation can mean the creation process is awry or incomplete.
It can mean the internal picture of something hasn’t come into focus, or something about yourself has recently emerged from the unconscious and hasn’t taken distinct form yet. See: Beaches
To dream about being dismembered can express feelings about being attacked personally. A situation is tearing you up. You go through the “meat grinder.”
Deformity or dismemberment can symbolize an ill mood or bad temper. It’s “ugly.” See: Ugliness
It can represent how you think people perceive you or react to you. If you get strange reactions from people, you can wonder if something really is wrong with you.
Deformity can visualize personal damage done by making a terrible mistake, something that harms your image or reputation. It’s a physical representation.
Carry the idea of “mangled” further, and it can symbolize a botched job or major fubar.
It can symbolize action or behavior that does or could cause harm to yourself or other people. Taking daredevil risks, for example, can lead to the sort of accident that disfigures you. In which case, a dream about being disfigured in an accident can symbolize fear of its actually happening.
Deformity or disfigurement can stem from personal neglect. It’s an extreme way of calling attention to your physical, emotional, or mental health.

A very strange dream causing an existential crisis
I was living life on a sort of farm property by a lake that I needed to survive on with my family. My house and surrounds were on the property, but outside of our house there was a fence that stretched around about a 250m diameter perimeter. I was told by my mum never to venture outside the perimeter or break the rules, because I would be in trouble by some technological godlike figure whose name I can't remember. Every day a new sort of animal would appear on the farm, such as a sheep, and they would appear in massive groups and run around the perimeter of the farm. I say sheep, but they only loosely resembled sheep - they were quite deformed, all had black wool and were very fast. They all had big orange writing painted on them spelling out the name of the animal. I realised something was off when my mum told me their name (which was written on the side of the sheep), but then I said I thought they looked more like a ___ (can't remember what the word was), and then every single sheep had their writing change to be labelled with this new word.
I said to my family - Where I come from, sheep don't work like that. They are already there on farmland and they don't just appear suddenly or change their name.
My family looked at me like they had seen a ghost.
'You have lived here your whole life! What do you mean' where you come from?''
I was very shocked and confused, so I went across the property and found my friends. We talked for a bit and I casually asked them: 'Do you ever wonder what life is like out there beyond this fence?' And they just laughed and said they didn't care.
Here's where it gets super weird. I went back up to my house and sat on the stairs. I was now questioning myself and then I had a thought. 'Am I dreaming?' I tried to focus on a dream and wake myself up, but it didn't work. I decided that it mustn't be a dream. But then I began to have a crisis. If this reality isn't just a dream, then maybe the other one is the dream? How can I know if this farmworld life was really my life, and my life up until this point was just a very long dream?
Needless to say I needed answers, and the rest of the dream was even stranger and involved me morphing into a sheep to disguise myself as I ventured outside the fence to search for clues (I can write about this part if the post does well). But it was a really awesome, eye opening dream, the likes of which I've never had before.

I need help decoding a messy, confusing dream.
Let me start this off by saying I'm an athiest. I have a distaste for religion in general so its not unusual to see me ranting about it to my friends (who agree with me, not the religious ones,) and its kind of a big thing in my life.
So. The nightmare.
It was incredibly vivid. So much so that i debated for an hour or so if the first half of it aftually happened or not. I was in my living room alone when i heard the static of the speakers turn into chatter. Later on i found out they were jewish ghosts. I asked them if god exists and what religion was the right one if he did (they told me he did and it was an east asian religion called something along the lines of yanyangson. Im middle eastern so i have no idea where this could have come from.) They used a combination of the static talk and tv screen to communicate with me. then i went to my laundry room to hide and search up this religion, (i can understand dream me as well, its tabboo to research other religions here) when i found a rabid looking cat. I love cats and cats have always loved me but this one was...off. and it was just standing there.
So in a panic i slammed the door shut but not before a dog could find its way into my kitchen to maul me. It had a deformed mouth with fleshy tight bits and hundreds of fleshy teeth with sharp end. He was going to kill me but i stabbed him and cut his head off clean and threw it outside.
Rabid cat had a cult. There were thousands of them outside and they all wanted me for some reason. They transformed into relatively attractive men and gave my sister a bright yellow hat. I was understandably getting really anxious so i begged my mom to take us outside the house somewhere, maybe to my aunts house.
Then id gotten a text from one of the cat men. They sent me the locations of the exact places my mom told me we were going minutes before she actually said it. I was mortified and begged her to go somewhere else.
The dream jumped with a whiplash cutscene where i was happy on a rollar coaster but that isnt really importany to the rest of the dream i dont think. Im very scared and i have no idea what to search up to inquire about the meaning of it.
Can anyone help?

I have this disturbing, recurring nightmare I wake up everynight to
At firat, I stumble upon a fully concrete structure; at the entrance, you would come to a small fall, and see that from the opposite side there's a long staircase that goes under the platform you stand on. Every stair/level is at least 2-3 x 4-5 meters, and on the one that isn't fully visible from the platform above it, I can see a leg. It seems to be connected to a body, but I can't see it. I can also hear an eerie scratching noise that seems to follow the Morse code for "S. O. S." - it appears to come from the body itself. I want to see, if that person needs help, or are just messing around, but I can only see the leg, no matter how far I lower my head (the thing I'm standing on seems to be several meters thick). I understand, that jumping down there would result in having to find another way out - there was no possible way to go back up.
It doesn't matter how many times I live through this nightmare - I always firmly believe I have to help. I jump. The scratching stops. I turn around to look at the man, whose leg I had been observing just seconds before. What stood before me was deformed, hauntingly humanoid, with intelligence in its eyes, munching on a bone. The visible skull of the once alive person I had to rescue. It creeps toward me, its expression weirdly comforting, as if it understood my fear, before it clings to me is a strong embrace, breaking every bone in my body, without killing me yet. I groan, and cry in agony.
I see it back away through my now blurry vision. Its actions seemed unsure, guilty, terrified of what it has done. It closes in again, this time shivering, carefully touching my head, and I realize: it wasn't eating the corpse, it was showing affection, and grieving the death of my predecessor. I close my eyes, and hear my neck snap.
I've had this nightmare for a few weeks, and everytime I'm just as horrified as the first time. I am scared of falling asleep, and seeing it's face again. Please, tell me anyone else has had a similar experience...

Dream about being forced to watch horrific videos
I was being held captive in a old large museum style building. I was being forced to watch a montage of horrific videos. Including people dying. Being shot. Deformed people fighting to the death. Puppies being crushed my a steam roller. A person being killed while having sex. Animals being tortured and skinned alive.
It was really upsetting. What could it mean?

Strange dream I had during a nap, can’t find the symbolism anywhere!
I recently dreamed that I was upset and angry with someone. It was a strange deformed boy, and I believed he did something to wrong me. I lashed out at him and broke his glasses... which were very valuable to him. He looked very stunned and heartbroken after I did it.
Maybe a couple days go by(dream time) and me and 2 friends were walking around. We find ourselves cornered in a weird space, and there’s a tall wall with roof space above us. We look up, and the guy who’s glasses I broke is there, casting fishhooks down with his friends and laughing. It took me a couple of moments to realize what was going on, and I tried to escape, but the second I ran off the fish hook caught on my back and he started reeling us up( there was one fishing rod for each of us). I felt the hook in my back stretching my skin and it was horrifying and grotesque. I quickly woke up and fell back asleep, forcing my dream to change during those few moments. Does anyone know what this could mean? Thanks
