A dream that focuses on a wound can be bringing the idea that something painful is being repressed. A woman who observes a wounded man can be exploring insecurities about being able to provide for herself. A man who sees a wounded woman may have shut down his ability to feel because of prior hurts. Where the wound appears on the body can also have significance. On the legs or feet, the message may be about the ability to move forward and feel empowered. Wounds on the arms or hands would symbolize the ability to take what one needs. A scar on the abdomen can represent not being able 'to stomach' difficulty. Wounds on the head can represent ideas that are self limiting or the need to let old grievances go so that one can 'heal.' See also Scar.
