My Son Was Brutally Raped (Being Chased Dream)
I dreamed that I heard my 14-yr-old son crying in his room, only it wasn't his bedroom in our home. I got the sense that it was in his father's home (we've been divorced for years). His father had just been in the room and had spanked him BECAUSE he was crying and telling him to stop.

When I went in to check on him, he was laying in bed with the covers over him. His head was disconnected - not severed, just not attached to his body. I could feel his distress, although it had nothing to do with his head. When I asked him what was wrong, he got out of bed, completely naked, and bent over in the floor to show me his rear end. The rest is pretty graphic, so I'll spare you the details, but he had been brutally raped, complete with blood and bruises. I just kept asking him over and over again, "Who did this?"

I'll tell you that what is happening in our lives right now is that he is insisting on going to live with his father in another state, but I'm not so sure that's what is best for him. My sense of the dream is not that he will be molested or literally raped, but that something terrible, life altering, is going to happen to him. Maybe I fear that he will lose himself or maybe his innocence by doing so?

Please help me! This is very disturbing to me. I don't know if this is just my fear, or if my gut instinct is trying to tell me something.

I personally do not think that your dream can actually translate into a sort of a prediction for the future. Your decision to send him back to his father must depend on other tangible factors. The only thing I'd do if I were you was to warn him about talking ro strangers and not to place himself in a place where he might be vulnerable.

Hi Parkerstar,

I Believe your dream is what you said it could be: A fear you have about your son’s well being. “His father had just been in the room and had spanked him BECAUSE he was crying…” Do you feel the father may not know how to handle your son’s emotions? Could the father respond to your son’s emotions and/or feelings in the wrong way? Does his Dad have patience? Or do you feel he may not have as much patience as you do? You felt your son’s stress but you knew it had nothing to do with his head. So perhaps if something does occur it won’t have anything to do with his mentality. It could be more emotional?
Rape in a dream could mean that a person was taken advantage of. In this dream by someone they trusted. So now there’s an emotional hurt because a person or a situation didn’t turn out the way it was believed to turn out. Does this fit with your son wanting to go live with his dad? What kind of ideas does your son have about living with his dad? Are they realistic ideas? Will his dad more than likely follow through or do you feel the dad will more than likely disappoint your son?
“…completely naked, and bent over in the floor to show me his rear end…” This quote cause me to say that someone is completely exposed (vulnerable) in a situation and ‘in the end’ they could feel hurt by someone else’s doing and/or a situation. So I guess the question is does your dream have some truth to it or is it fear of losing the son that you know? Will it be a good thing for father and son to be together? Or is it that this particular combination (father and son) may not be a good idea? Will cause more damage in the long run?
I think asking your son what his expectations are when he goes to live with his dad. That’s a starting point to see where his head is at on the situation. My heart goes out to you because it may seem there’s nothing you can do to protect your child from being hurt. It seems like a lot of emotions could be there for you which perhaps is what prompt your dream. I hope this helps you.
