To dream of a lynching represents a cold or heartless approach to problem solving. Feeling good thinking of someone as a totally humiliated loser. It may also reflect satisfaction in "sticking it" to someone who disappointed you. You or someone else that is insensitively ridding yourself of commitments, relationships, or problems. It may also reflect a bitter act of retribution. A total loss of respect for someone. Feeling good not liking someone.
To dream of being chased by a lynch mob represents feelings about people or situations that gain satisfaction totally humiliating you as a total loser. You may have crossed someone who would enjoy having retribution. Feeling that people want to celebrate or instigate your total failure.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing someone being lynched. In real life he had lost all respect for a girl he liked. The lynching reflected the cold 180 degree change in his feelings for her. He became quite bitter and vocal about his new dislike for her.
To dream of a lynx represents feelings about issues that don't scare you or feel threatening until they are close at hand. Feeling that something is weak or impotent from afar, but deadly serious when you approach it. Feeling total emptiness from someone or something after first believing it to be gentle or easy. A dangerous threat with a docile appearance on the surface.
Negatively, a lynx may reflect a major oversight or embarrassment about a serious underestimation you've made. Feeling that a situation you first believed you could easily talk your way out of has become very serious or dangerous.
Example: The artist Peter Birkhouser's last dream painting before he died was of a giant black lynx standing over top of him, too big to do anything about. The dream was most likely a reflection of the artists fear of death or going to hell. The lynx may have reflected his feelings about death being something you don't worry about until it's too close. Alternatively, the lynx may have reflected his feeling about having completely underestimated the seriousness of his health problems.
