Dreams of being attacked typically represent feelings of being attacked emotionally, in our waking lives. Is the attacker someone you know? If so, you are alerted that you feel threatened (emotionally) by this person. If we are able to identify the attacker in our dreams, we will learn who—or what—is causing us the distress. If you cannot identify the attacker in the dream, the location and other key people in the dream are often clues. If you resist and stand up to an attacker, it is a positive sign of self-confidence and assertion. If your efforts to combat the attacker fail or are ineffective, it reflects feelings of helplessness or powerlessness against that person.

Attackers can also represent internal struggles—“battles” with drug, alcohol, or food addictions, for example, that a person “just can’t beat” or they may represent social pressures to conform.
