I had a dream I was on a ship protecting my older brother from someone who did Santeria and I ended up getting stabbed in the middle of my chest with a kitchen knife. Any idea what this could mean?
I am not familiar with Santeria so i had to do some mini research which is pretty fascinating.
“Santería means “worship of the saints.” Just as the saints serve as emissaries to the creator god in the Catholic religion, so Santería has a creator god and a huge number of lesser deities, or saints, known as orishas. The orishas rule over every aspect of nature and human endeavor. And like the saints, you can find an orisha for anything that ails you. Santería is a decentralized religion with no template for ritual, symbol, or doctrine. The rituals and even the some of the saints will vary from house temple to house temple depending on the santeros or santeras (priests or priestesses). Worship takes place in a casa de santos (house of the saints). Central to the worship in Santería is dance, trance, and divination.”
With that being said, i’m guessing the dream was about protecting your brother from a ritual or spell where you ended up getting stabbed instead? Symbolically it shows me sacrifice and bravery, you have a deep love for your family. Being stabbed in place of your brother could also mean you have a struggle with power, you are experiencing feelings of inadequacy and defensiveness.
It could also reversibly mean betrayal such as the saying ‘stabbed in the back’. Also the location of the stabbing because it is the middle of the chest could denote something to do with the heart chakra, feelings, emotions, relationships, love and self-love.
hope this helps!
