Electrical shock and other energy emanations are often associated with trying to cross a taboo line or some other kind of punishment. Sometimes the energy is not from a traditional source (i.e., cattle prod, electric fence, stun gun), but is rather the projection of power against us from another dream figure. Probably because of the paralyzing power of electrical shock and the invisible nature of electricity, we feel invisibly restrained or unable to move. The taboo we are violating may be obvious, such as trying to enter a place that is forbidden or itmay be more general, trying to assume too much personal power in the cosmos. Either way, being confronted by electrical or other energy metaphors can be a jolting dream event.
Did you notice where the shock came from, or did it surprise you? Did the shock hurt or disable you, or was it merely a nuisance?
