Chase Dreams

Chase dreams usually come back to haunt us in recurring type dreams that can drag on until we find the issue. Running away from what ever is chasing you suggests you are running away from something you fear in you’re walking life. Finding out who is chasing you might be easy but what is it’s true form? Dreams have a tendency to come across as metaphors so understanding every detail and decoding it helps get to the core of the issue. We found a video online that gives us more insight on chase dreams and what to do when you get them. He mentioned that you should turn around and confront your attacker but I don’t think that is a good idea. If you don’t fix the issue in your walking life then it might manifest it to something else if you confront what ever is chasing you. How to you find out who is chasing you. You have to figure out if this is an internal or external problem. If you cant see the face of the attacker then it could be aspects of yourself you are not facing that’s killing you. If you recognize the attacker then it could have something to do with that person.

Our dream forum has Thousands of members that study and have there dreams analyzed. Below we listed some chase dreams from our forum members that give you an idea that it is more common that you think. Join us and sign up at our forum above and let us know your chase dream. We will show you a consistent pattern in most of the chase dreams below that is the key symbol to analyze.

Dream 1:

I had a disturbing dream last night, which I’ve had several times before. In it, I was being chased by a person that I had imprisoned, it was sort of weird – like I had imprisoned him and then forgot all about him (for got to feed him/ let him out – just forgot!), then he obviously managed to escape and was hunting me down. I was running away and feeling more guilty than scared (but still very scared). I felt like I should stop and apologize, or try to explain that it was all mistake. The chase went on for ages, through dark forests and villages, I’d even wake up from the dream and go to the bathroom, when I got back to bed the dream would take up where it left off. ===== What does this mean?

 

Admin Analysis:

If you notice the key dream symbols in her dream.  We have imprisoned twice, feeling more guilty, stop and apologize and bathroom.  Just by judging from the symbols her problem seems to be with her guilt that is weighing her down. The bathroom would imply some form or needing  release from the stress.

 

Dream 2:

Ive had a dream reoccurring every once in a while the past year+ or so. It is where I’m at my grandmothers old house on the lake and im stuck inside the house I cant get out. My grandmother and a very large, scary dog are behind a see through door and im putting all my strength to keep them from coming out because i know theyll hurt me. I let go of the door and run as fast as i can down to the lake to get into an inflatable boat and go home to my mother, the only one whom i can trust. My best friend jumps in the boat with me and were off to get somewhere safe but all of a sudden my younger cousins get in the water and try to drown us by tipping the boat over. Somewhere along the lines my cousins and best friend disappears and Im left alone, and really scared. My last obstacle is through a simple tunnel, where small monsters jump out and try to pull me back from getting out, i finally reach the end of the tunnel, a bright open lake that sparkles. But i know something is still wrong, however that is where my dream ends. I hate having this dream, what does it mean and how can I prevent it from happening again?

Dream Analysis:

The time of the recurring dream you can trace back that problem too,  in this dreamers case it was one year.  This dream shouts out external problems most likely with her family.  Water would represent emotions and the cousin is pulling her down.  She feels stuck, trying hard to not get hurt and then gets pulled down.

Steve:

I had an epic dream a few nights ago. It was just so vivid I don’t even know if its a lucid dream, or just a really realistic one. There was a volcano eruption that was about to occur. I didn’t know when, though, I saw a volcano from a top of a building in my dream, surrounded by boiling sea water. I looked around and saw people running. And so did I start to run too. While running, I could feel the stretching of the muscles, in my dreams! It was scary, yet fascinating. Needless to say when I woke up, my legs began to ache, as if I had really been in the dream! Then, we ran into a tunnel, where it was decorated with marble columns and beautiful carvings. Everyone still ran straight ahead, and the next thing I knew, I dropped something in my dream. As I turned around to retrieve it, I saw that there were way too many people to get past, and I continued running.
Then, I found myself standing in front of this mall-like building. As I walked in, I was told by a strange person to turn to the right, and did I do it. I traveled up an escalator and ran down a slope on a second level, and I found myself in a convention hall. A lot of people that i had seen before, real or not, were all sitting around in tables. Then, the scene shifted and I found myself sitting in a forest, in front of an old wooden house with my friends in a circle. A statue was placed at the end of the forest. Suddenly, the statue moved! It reached out a hand for my friend. In fear, I turned around, and saw an old hag approaching me. I woke up after that. It was just.. So real!

Mike:

I had an epic dream i would never forget, i felt so liberated when i woke up and i wish it would have lasted longer, well it started off like this, i was in some medieval village with town houses and stone floors, and 4 little orphans wanted me to help rob a house lol, i don’t know what but i agreed too, so i dressed up as a guy with a beige cloak and glasses and we were looking for a house to rob

so we found one with a door slightly open and we snuck in, we were being very cautious to make sure that no one was in the house and when the signal was clear we were trying to rob everything we could lol, than someone came out of the shower and before he could see us we left quickly.

When we outside the orphans ran and there was a cop who saw us and wanted to cuff me, but i said to him you can’t catch me if am going to fly away so that’s what i did, so i levitated myself and wow there was this amazing beautiful sunset i was flying towards, the closer i got far away i spotted ancient greek ruins in some field, but the sight was so beautiful i really good feeling in my chest.

So when i arrived at the ruins, i saw my friend from high school, she said she is trying to hide from her dad because he is mad at her and he might hit her or something lol. So i said to her i will help her talk to her dad so i flew away to him and i helped solve the problem so he wasn’t mad anymore, than i woke up lol.

 

Andrea:

I really wish I had more epic dreams… they’re awesome. I’ve only had two so far, and only one of them was organized to the point of actually being a sensible story, but the other one was awesome in it’s spontaneity and kept me guessing all the way through. It’s definitely interesting how you say that you’ll remember them all your life, because I definitely do, and looking back I actually remember them better than actual events that happened in real life! Strange… but awesome. I usually dream a ton every night and usually about every day things, so it’s these two dreams really made my day. In the sensible epic dream that I had I actually died in the end, and I have to say that when I woke up I thought it was the coolest thing ever!

Dave:

The only dream I can truly classify as epic happened to me over a year ago. Remembering every detail, standing in my friend’s field, I saw colors you and I as humans could not possibly perceive. A great meteor storm came hurling from a great sea of black. Once the meteors hit our atmosphere, lightning would light the sky and I would see these colors. Colors of the prettiest, most vibrant reds, greens, and purples flooded the sky. The meteors started making impact, still glowing from their journey. I look to my right and I notice a ship. A ship so massive it would not have fit inside our planet. This “ship” appeared to be sinking, or falling for that matter, below our horizon. I remember seeing it getting progressively closer. The feeling I had upon awakening was that I will never experience again. I felt like I had just seen the last minutes of earth’s existence and was about to be carried away. Saved from my personal extinction.

Jenna:

Personal Sleep Walking Stories:

Kathy

“I’m 12 years and Ive sleepwalked 3 times i think. I came out of my room and went straight to the patio door window.(in the kitchen) My parents were in the living right next door and my mom said she didn’t even hear me come out of my room. They said i just stood at the window and stared out to something. My mom said it was kinda freaky because my eyes were wide open but really interesting to watch. My dad slowly walked up behind me calling my name and telling me that i had to go to bed and lightly pointing me in the right direction. I went to my room and i stopped right when i got in my room. My dad helped me in bed and then i was fine. The next morning i was so freaked out when they told me”.  (Dream Dictionary Forum)

Denis

“I am 19 now , I think I am sleep walking , I am not sure, but every morning I wake up some things are out of place. like items inside my room and not in the position they were the night before…
I remember a couple of nights ago where I remember going to bed, as I did so… I looked at my phone for a second which is on the desk across my room.
Next morning I woke up and found my phone underneath me in my bed.
I was confused and now pretty sure either someones pranking me consecutively or I am in fact sleep walking…”  (Dream Dictionary Forum)

Mary

“When i was a kid i would sleep walk all the time i would wake my grandma up and give her pizza and i would run out the front door i would clean out my sisters closet and i never remembered any of it the next morning i was just always tired. my sisters used to laugh at me every morning saying all the things i done the night before.” (Dream Dictionary Forum)

Marie

“I’m 16 years old girl and I have been sleepwalking for months. But it’s not how u describe it in the paper up above, I remember the morning after that I slept walked I don’t always know the reason but I know what I did while I was sleepwalking. One night I pulled all my electronics out of the electrical sockets, and lately for the passed two weeks I have been turning my light on and off throughout the night but I have no idea why!!?”(Dream Dictionary Forum)

Chris

“I’m not quite sure if this has subsided now but here’s my story: when I was 11 I got the “swine flu” or H1N1 as it is scientifically known. I then took the Tamiflu tablets which warned a side effect of hallucinations. My mother let me sleep in her bed with her that night but when I woke up in the morning she told me I had been shouting and swearing, kicking out my arms and legs. It was a totally random situation that I don’t remember dreaming, saying or doing but I’m certain it’s true because I had some more situations like this only remembering one of which I sort of woke up during then realized what was going on. The similarity for all of my situations was that they only happened when I was sleeping in the same room as someone else”.  (Dream Dictionary Forum)

What Are Dreams?

Our dreams are made up of  a combination of thoughts, images, and emotions.  The majority of our dreams are thought out during our REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage.  The period of REM usually takes up close to a quarter of our sleep, or roughly around 120 minutes a night.  Most of the time when we get a full night's sleep we will participate in or around 3 to 5 laps of REM sleep, each getting gradually longer as the night progresses.  Most people over the age of 10 start having up to 4 to 6 dreams per night and that we lose up to 90% of our dream in the first minute of waking up. Remembering your dreams can be very easy once you know the right steps, and at Dream Dictionary we will teach you to improve dream recall.
