Scissors in dreams have a powerful meaning and symbolism. Although it is a tool that can be found in every household and to which not everyone attaches great importance, our ancestors already perceived scissors as a sacred symbol of truth and power.
If you had a dream about scissors, stabbing, cutting, flying, or broken scissors, the scissors dream meaning might surprise you.
Symbolism of Scissors
It is common knowledge that scissors can cut through anything in seconds. Their power comes from the geometric shape of two blades that cuts two edges at once. People who understand this symbolism see the scissors as a symbol of change, growth, and transition.
Scissors also represent ending or detaching from something. In this sense, they are a positive sign of getting rid of something that has made your life difficult or prevented you from moving forward.
Last but not least, scissors represent the cyclical nature of life and death, as well as birth and rebirth. If a pregnant woman sees scissors in her dream, it is said to bring good luck and a prosperous life for her baby.
Spiritually, a dream about scissors represents severing ties with old relationships or past events that no longer serve you or you want to free yourself from.
You may be in a relationship with someone who restricts your freedom or wants to control you. Scissors in a dream are your subconscious’ way of telling you that it’s time to make a change and become a free person again.
Furthermore, dreams of scissors are seen in a spiritual sense as a sign to get rid of your habit of material things and become more aware of your psychic abilities. I know from experience that people who cling to possessions or material things dream of scissors more often than anyone else.
The dream could be a way for you to let go of things so you can become more clear and focused on the things that are most important to you, such as your health or family.
If you are dependent on someone (especially emotionally) or chasing someone, this dream means that it is time to break away from them and realize that what is meant for you will find you. You have to “cut the rope” that you tied yourself to another person or thing and become free again.
Dreaming of finding scissors may indicate healing and self-realization is near. There may be trust or detachment involved in cutting out that which no longer serves you. You may gain freedom if things can’t be repaired or changed back.
Finding scissors in a dream is synonymous with finding the courage to end something for good or let go of something or someone.
Dreaming of a broken or damaged object is most likely a message from your subconscious mind, which may reflect your current feelings and emotions or even a warning about something.
If you’re dreaming about broken scissors, you are likely worrying too much about losing something or someone. Perhaps you’re taking the relationship too far and pushing too hard because you are afraid of losing that person, while your efforts have the opposite effect.
A dream about broken scissors is telling you not to try or push yourself or someone so hard. More effort does not always mean better results.
To dream of flying scissors represents the fearlessness that comes with being free of fear. The dream encourages you to be more decisive and self-confident in your life or that you may need to forgive others more fully.
According to old dream dictionaries, a dream about flying scissors means that you are not fully determined to end something. For example, you want to leave someone because they cheated on you, but instead of leaving them and cutting off all contact, you keep coming back to them.
You have to grasp the scissors in your hands and cut the rope that is holding you back. As flying in dreams represents your thoughts and freedom, flying scissors could also symbolize your desire to break free from something or someone.
Being Stabbed With Scissors
Dream about being stabbed with scissors means an emotional rejection, loss, or betrayal. It is a message from your unconscious mind that something you value is not as important to you as you think.
For example, this dream could mean cutting off contact with someone close, such as your partner or friend. You may have found out that they are not who you thought they were because they spilled secrets about you or talked behind your back. They literally “cut” the trust you had in them.
