I had a dream about killing mice again. There were two mice that I was chasing around this environment I was in. Everything leading up to this was extremely confusing so I can’t really describe how I got to chasing mice or the place I was in. By the time I finally cornered them they had two little mice with them. Somehow they found the time to have children. I gave each mouse a bop with my closed fist to cripple them. They stared up at me plaintively with their beady eyes, confused by their paralysis. Then my conscience didn’t want them to suffer so I tried to put them out of their misery by smashing them again. Why the hell do I dream about crushing mice? In the dream, I feel an overwhelming need to kill them for some reason, but I take no joy in the follow through.
According to various sources, mice are hard to interpret because the dreamer can be influenced by how Mice have been portrayed in the media during their life. i.e. Mickey Mouse, The Secret of NIMH, Tom and Jerry. That said they also could represent trivial matters that I am spending way too much energy dealing with. Killing them is an attempt to subconsciously eliminate the tedious problems. I should probably mention that I have heard mice in the ceiling of the living room, but I don’t hear them when lying in bed at night. If perhaps I was hearing them while I was sleeping, then I could understand my recurrent mouse murder.
Some laughable phrases that came up concerning mice or killing them are:
-Getting rid of unwanted guests in your house
-Trouble with a partner
-As a woman dreaming this I may have trouble with another woman
-A symbol of women’s lechery
