How To Understand My Chase Dream:
Recognizing the context of the dream will help you decipher whether it”s an internal or external problem. Who or what is chasing you? The attacker might be hidden aspects of yourself you are unwilling to recognize? Being unaware of your emotions such as anger, fear, love or envy can manifest it”s way as a threatening figure. If you cannot see the chaser then it might suggest you are blind by your shadow figures in life. If you repress your dark side then it will transform to an scary entity that haunts you in your dreams. How close is your attacker, and how did you get away? Where you hiding or did you face it? How you react in the dream mimics how you are dealing with this situation in your walking life. If your dream is external than your unconscious would give you hints of what to look out for.

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 (forgot 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.
This seems to be a dream relating to something the dreamer locked away, forgot about or left alone unconsciously. The key symbol to the dream is to find out what the dreamer is feeling more guilty about than scared. Could this be a male in her life, or aspects of her Anima. The dreamer hold guilt in the past that might stem from a relationship they ignored.
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?
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.
