I Dreamt That I Saved My Family From Gun-wielding Mafia

It was an interesting and intense dream.

Not as abrupt at the swimming with sharks dream, as intense as the zombie dream but even that was single room with single frontal view.

This dream on the other hand, started with me being aware that my family was in the wrong place, wrong time, and they were being held captive by mafias, gangsters or people with guns, and that I was in a car heading someplace to get suitable weapons.

I was driving away from the place, and I can remember bits and pieces of where my family was, and I “suddenly” ended up with two weapons, a shotgun and an automatic rifle.

I drove back to the place where my family was held captive, and I silently broke into the first area, which seemed to be an open area for processing goods. There were not many guards, just 3, of which I used the shotgun to get rid of them from a near-ish distance.

Hmm, I was that good with a gun?

Am I a trained military spy or what?

I climbed up a ladder nearby, and it was a corridor with a few rooms on the right. I opened the door and they were there. Unhurt.

Mm? Mostly unhurt – seems like my wife got hurt in the eye, but nothing severe, just mild bruises. I checked out their physical conditions and told them that we’re getting out of there.

I went out to take a look beyond the corridor, and I commando-crawled towards the edge.

My eyes widened as I saw a LOT of military? armed people standing in platoons and teams, with someone standing right in front of them. I knew at that point, all I needed to do was to get away, no point engaging.

I crawled backwards, got my family down the stairs, into the car and we were off.

Apparently it was my brother who was driving and I remember I was scolding him because he missed a turn that would lead us to the airport, but he was calm and he told me that he knows the way, to which I nodded silently.

No point wasting energy.

We escaped that situation and then I woke up.

It’s definitely a longer scoped out dream with multiple individuals in the dream this time, and I wonder if there’s any significance or meaning that I need to consider.

Does it mean that

  1. I will fight and die for my family? ie they’re most important to me?
  2. That I am a planner, I knew I needed to get weapons to save my family…and to withdraw when I know it’s impossible to win that specific scenario?

  • Dream about Saving My Family is a symbol for strength, longevity, immortality, faithfulness, durability and fertility. It is time to listen to your instincts. Your emotions are clouding your judgment. The dream is an evidence for your unrealized potential and possibilities. You are ready to make a brand new start in a new place.
  • Saving My Family is a premonition for protection. You are giving up on something that you had once believed. You need to capture some moment and preserve it. Your dream represents wisdom and intellect. Perhaps there is something that you are refusing to see and acknowledge.


Jesus I pray that You continue to give me visions and dreams, and keep guiding me closer to you.
