Dreams Related To Back

Being shot in the back

According to Jungian dream interpretation sources, being shot in the back has a very similar meaning to the phrase being "stabbed in the back". This means you are likely to be betrayed or hurt by someone you thought you could trust. In this case, it seems more likely to be an older person than a friend or peer. For instance, a school counselor may blab your secrets to their colleagues or a boss may let the embarrassing reason you were out sick slip to the rest of your team.

Back pain

The interpretation of back pain in the dream realm, particularly that of the lower back or spine, often suggests you are stressed in reality. The unpleasant sensations of tenseness, soreness or achiness are manifestations of tension and severe anxiety in wake life. Furthermore, these aches and pains may indicate holding onto certain feelings or responsibilities longer than necessary. This means if you were to offload some of your work or burdens on someone else, you would probably feel much lighter and relaxed.

People with backs turned

I dreamed I walked into a room and everybody had their backs turned on me and one person said your in the wrong room.

Walking into a room may point toward a new idea you have had or a new course of action you have set out for yourself. Seeing everyone with their backs to you, then, represents some roadblocks to your success. In particular, this could refer to your inability to gain the support of some important individuals or keep up relations with those who have helped you in the past. While this venture may not be destined for success, trying something new or working from a different angle may yield slightly more promising results.

Someone carrying you on their back

According to the teachings of Carl Jung on dream interpretations, being carried on someone's back symbolizes a lack of personal responsibility or feeling overwhelmed in waking life. The person carrying you represents a figure of authority or a supportive individual who is helping you to cope with the burden of your responsibilities. If the dream feels heavy, it is a warning to take control of your own life and avoid taking on more responsibilities. Alternatively, if the dream feels light and uplifting, it indicates that you are successfully relying on someone else's help and support and should take your responsibilities into your own hands to win what you're striving for.
