Try to apply the classification of the monster to the following categories:.
Dreaming About Strange Creatures
- Fighting a monster in a dream: Fighting a monster in a dream is quite common. Very often, fighting a monster during a dream occurs when we are failing to heed some important advice from another. The dream is connected with events in waking life. On a historical level, fighting monsters in legends during our sleep connects with the need to be wiser. If the monster was animalistic in any way, then this can indicate that you need to monitor how you approach problems in life. Monsters are tightly interwoven into our own culture. Demons, fairies, and vampires in a dream can indicate that your innocence is being challenged.
- Monster size: The size of the monster will determine the size of the issue you are handling in real life. Dreams about monsters could be a sign to face your issues in real life, even if you don’t like or fear them. Change what you can and accept those that you have no control over. It could be that there is a part of you that doesn’t want to accept someone for who they are, or you might be angry over something. The need to forgive yourself for someone’s actions can also cause monster dreams.
- Attacking monster in dreams: magical, gigantic monsters attacking you during the dream indicate a “battle” is going to be on your hands. It denotes, in Welsh folklore, that you should be perfectly obedient to your own goals in life. To overcome the monster in a dream is positive.
- Serpent or dragon monster: Dreaming of a gigantic serpent or dragon can indicate that you are capable of thinking deeply. In Hindu mythology, Ahi was a massive serpent that was so large that it drank water in the earth. Dreaming of a large snake monster can indicate that you need to release your emotions.
- Vampire monsters: Vampiric monsters in dreams are connected to the need for safety to occur in life. The dream is focused on protection. It was thought that the African cost that vampires presented in sleeping indicated that you needed to abandon a project. The correct technical term is known as an abandonment, and if you get repetitive dreams of this type of monster trying to bite you, then it is advised to lay pepper before you sleep.
- Dreaming of strange creatures: Mythical creatures in a dream can indicate that “not all is as it seems.” The creature could often be connected to your dealings with others in real life. Sometimes the monster in your dream could just be from deep within your subconscious mind. Every dream is connected to our own symbolic subconscious mind. Monsters are strange and this could represent dealing with someone or a situation in life. Strange creatures in dreams often appear when we are feeling worried or scared about something. The strange creatures can represent our own fear, even though they are completely harmless. There is a focus here on feeling free; the monster represents a phase of life that is free from worry. If the strange creatures are large, then this can indicate you are feeling overwhelmed. I hope this helps.
- Cannot see the monster: There are times when you dream about a monster that you cannot see, but deep down, you know that it is in the vicinity, trying to haunt you. This kind of dream is revealing to you an issue in your life you are trying to escape from. It could be a message to face a problem that is really bothering you in life and that is now being portrayed in your subconscious as a “monster” so that you can tackle your problems before they destroy you. When people contact me about monster dreams, I often ask them to look at the past for pain that needs overcoming.
- Transformation in life: When undergoing a transformation, it is possible to have dreams about monsters. They are dreams that can reveal the bad and the ugly in your personality. You might be behaving badly with your friends and relatives, treating them unjustly and thus the dream will try to pinpoint to you some of the bad habits you have or how badly you are behaving and the dire need to change.
- Anxiety dream: Something happening in your life that you are worried about can make you dream about a monster. On the other hand, you could be having your own desire for something bad to happen to someone else, which would thus make you have this type of dream. Falling out with someone can often trigger a monster to appear in your dream. The dream could pinpoint a certain problem you are currently facing in your life, which is now overwhelming you. This could be “being” out of control over a situation in your life. If the monster is massive, then it could be a sign of being overpowered. If it had large, sharp teeth, then it could imply that you fear being attacked. I do feel that not having enough sleep and other physical conditions can cause you to have dreams where you see monsters. Overeating and constipation can affect our dreams. Not being able to sleep well due to bad aeration in the room could also trigger the dream.
- Children dreaming of a monster: It is more common for children to have monster dreams than adults due to the content they watch in cartoons and movies or some underlying issues in their lives. Children often have dreams of monsters, which can indicate that they are feeling worried about an aspect of waking life.

In this case, it symbolizes a person in your life whom you consider to be a threat or one who forces you to do something that you don’t like or that you know is overwhelming to you.
