The meaning of chased dreams, chased dreams have realistic effects and reactions, as well as the subjective imagination of the dreamer. Please see the detailed explanation of the chased dreams to help you sort out below.
Being chased: The pressure of real life, or the inner scourge.
Dreaming of being chased or killed by people, animals or even aliens, and you run out of breath. This kind of dream is reminiscent of the real life that is always full of pressure, so the source of pressure is the important key to this kind of dream. So if you can identify the boss or wife who is chasing you, it will certainly help clarify the meaning of your dreams. But if it is very unfortunate, if the enemy who is chasing you is vague, then you can only help you in the process of fleeing or someone who has been with you, and you can infer who the “enemy” may be. So next time in your dream, it is necessary to try hard to take a look, so that you know where the inexplicable fear in your heart comes from, and you must dare to face the danger to solve the problem.
Targeting chasing objects:
If you can recall the specific person chasing you, then the dream interpretation is very obvious. If it is a boss or colleague or classmate, it is related to your work and study environment and pressure; if it is a dream of family members and children, it is naturally related to family depression.
But more often, the “enemy” chasing you is often your own incarnation, so you can’t get rid of it at all. This kind of incarnation is actually your instincts, such as morality, responsibility, guilt, etc.; if the “enemy” is a part of yourself, then the outcome of catching up is very important.
For catching up results:
You may fight against the enemy. Whether it is setting traps or other tricks or picking up a submachine gun to sweep around, it means that you suppress your inner scourge and achieve a temporary, rational victory.
You may have found a safe place to hide, which means that you use a temporary escape method in exchange for inner peace. But this is often also a manifestation of self-deception, adding a disguise to oneself and deliberately not feeling anxiety, this kind of dreamer’s personality is generally weaker.
You may have run away for a long time and finally be killed, or you may wake up too frightened, which symbolizes that the dreamer usually suppresses his instincts too much, and even after the suppression reaches a certain intensity, he begins to encounter strong instincts to resist or retaliate. The more ferocious the chase in the dream, the greater the intensity of the dreamer’s instincts.
If you shook hands with the enemy inexplicably, then pay attention to how you fight against the enemy in your dream. It is a gift of wisdom that the dream gives you beyond the fright. Maybe in the same way, you are confused in reality. It will be solved.
For the catch-up process:
Analyze how you escaped, whether you walked like flying, or wanted to run but couldn’t run fast. Most people want to run in their dreams but can’t run fast. The feeling of running not fast makes them very scared in their dreams. This reflects a kind of self-knowledge that they are unable to escape the dangers they face in life.
How you escaped in your dream can also explain many problems. For example, a netizen once dreamed of being chased by someone, and wanted to escape, but was not running fast, so he jumped up and wanted to fly to the sky, but was grabbed by someone behind him by the ankle, and was terrified. This dream reflects the dreamer’s attempt to escape from reality by way of fantasy (flying to the sky), but the reality is caught by the ankle.
If you want to hide, but you will be found no matter where you hide, it doesn’t matter how tight the door is closed, the chaser will be a few steps behind you wherever you go. At this time, the person or animal chasing you is a part of yourself, a symbol of your conscience or your values, or your own memories, worries, and pain. Since the chaser is in your mind, of course you can’t hide it so that it can’t find you, because you can’t completely deceive yourself.
The dream of being chased is probably the most common dream, and almost everyone has had this kind of dream.
Such as being chased by a dog or a group of dogs, chased by a group of bandits or robbers, chased by a group of enemies, etc.
According to Freud’s theory, the symbolic meaning of this type of dream refers to the conflict between one’s self and instinct. Such as sexual instincts and attacking instincts are suppressed by civilization and society, so they are usually symbolized by wild beasts or savage and beastly people. In other words, in this type of dream, dogs or other ferocious beasts, bandits, robbers, etc. are all signs of instinct. The chased person is usually the dreamer himself, sometimes someone else, but it is still a symbol of the dreamer’s self.
From an emotional point of view, this kind of dream is a manifestation of fear. It shows that the dreamer was facing a certain danger in his life at that time, he was very afraid of this danger, and tried his best to avoid and get rid of this danger.
Fleeing may be the first reaction of our animal ancestors when they encounter danger. When a monkey sees a ferocious beast, it is not like a snake that can hide in a cave, nor is it like a hedgehog that can shrink into a ball, nor is it like a tortoise that has a shell that can shrink into it. The best choice for monkeys is to run.
Therefore, avoiding because of fear is the deepest instinct in human nature. When you are afraid, you will naturally dream of running away, and the dangerous enemy will be chasing after you.
Therefore, if the dream interpreter wants to know what makes the dreamer so scared, he should ask the dreamer what kind of person is chasing him in his dream; if not a person, then what? This person or beast or monster chasing him , It symbolizes the person or thing he fears in life now. Although, intellectually, the dreamer may not necessarily admit that he is afraid of the other person, but in the subconscious mind, he is already afraid. Let the dreamer know that his inner fear is not a bad thing. The next step is to help the dreamer face this terrible reality and help him solve this difficulty, thereby eliminating fear and gaining inner security.
There was a girl of 17 or 18 who said that she often dreamed of being chased. The author asked who was chasing her. She replied: “Is a beggar.”
So I asked her again, who in her life begs for objects or emotions like a beggar.
She replied: “That’s my parents. When I was a child, I was brought up by my grandparents and didn’t have much affection with my parents. Now I am with them, and they always beg for my affection like a beggar. They often blame me for my feelings. They have no feelings. So I am afraid to see them.”
“They are the beggars in your dreams. You want to escape them but you can’t escape, so you are very scared. Their behavior is understandable, and parents want their children to love themselves.” I said.
The little girl responded to me: “So I also feel bad about myself, why can’t I love them?”
“You are not unfilial. Feelings have their own laws and cannot be forced. How can you have feelings for them all at once without being with them? You don’t have to blame yourself for this. Don’t be afraid of them, because you don’t. That’s right. It’s like treating a beggar, you give it if you want, and don’t give it if you don’t want to, and don’t have to run away. In this way, they will gradually understand the truth that feelings can’t be forced. In this way, maybe after a while, between you and your parents Instead, there will be real feelings.” I said.
If you don’t know who is chasing you in your dream, try to be bold and take a look, so you know where the inexplicable fear in your heart comes from. This kind of look is the so-called: dare to face danger.
You can also analyze how you escaped, whether you walked like flying, or wanted to run but couldn’t run fast. Most people want to run in their dreams but can’t run fast. The feeling of not running fast makes them very scared in their dreams. This reflects a self-knowledge, thinking that one has no ability to escape the dangers faced in life. How you escaped in your dream can also explain many problems. For example: I once dreamed of being chased by someone, I wanted to run but I couldn’t run fast, so I jumped up and wanted to fly to the sky, but the people behind grabbed my ankle, so I was terrified. This dream reflects my attempt to escape reality by means of fantasy (flying to the sky), but I was caught by reality.
Have you ever had this kind of dream: when you are being chased, you want to hide, but you will be found no matter where you hide, no matter how tightly you close the door, it is useless. Wherever you go, the chasers are a few steps behind you. Or like the woman who dreamed of a dog: She beat the dog hard with a stick, but couldn’t kill the dog.
At this time, the person or animal chasing you is a part of yourself, your conscience or your values, or your own memories, worries, and pain. Because the chaser is actually in your own mind, of course you can’t hide so that he can’t find you, because you can’t deceive yourself.
By the way, do we have to obey our inner conscience? Not at all. For most people, the so-called conscience is only the influence of the education and family received at an early age, and it may not be correct. For example, a person in the old age may think that remarrying a widow is very shameful, immoral, and contrary to conscience, and this conscience is nothing more than the old morals. Through dreams, we can know what is “catching up” with us in our hearts, and then we can specifically analyze how we should do it. Is it to obey the chaser, to defeat it or to persuade it.
Because instinct does not consider social norms, ethics and morality, it often manifests as sexual impulses and aggressive impulses, so it inevitably conflicts with one’s self. The ending of the chased dream often symbolizes the dreamer’s strategy to resolve this conflict.
Generally speaking, dreams being chased have several endings:
(1) The person being pursued (often the dreamer himself) is bitten or killed;
(2) The chased person pretends to be dead or hides, avoiding the sight of wild beasts or bad guys;
(3) The chased person fights head-on with wild beasts or bad guys.
The ending (1) symbolizes that the dreamer usually represses his instincts too much, and when the repression reaches a certain level, he begins to encounter strong instincts to resist or retaliate. The more ferocious the chaser in the dream, the greater the intensity of the dreamer’s instinct repression;
The ending (2) symbolizes that dreamers often use self-deception and turn a blind eye to release some instinctive impulses in their daily lives, that is, add some reasonable disguise to the instinctual impulses, so that the self does not feel anxious. Such dreamers are generally weaker in character;
The ending (3) symbolizes that the dreamer continues to suppress his instincts in daily life, or that the dreamer has suppressed his instincts for years, and the dreamer himself has become a rational machine.
The strategies shown in the above three endings are not the correct attitude towards instinct. The correct attitude towards instinct should be like Dayu’s control of water. It is naturally undesirable to allow it to overflow, but blindly suppressing instinct will inevitably lead to future troubles, and “draining” is relatively preferable.
Shaking hands and making peace with the beast or bad guy in the dream is a kind of guidance. If the instinct is channeled, it is a continuous flow of vitality and vitality; if it is suppressed and blocked and eventually overflows, it will become destructive; if it is over-repressed, the vitality and vitality will be exhausted.
Psychological Dream Interpretation
Dream interpretation: This kind of dream is usually caused by extreme worry or frustration in real life. To dream of being chased and running is a bad omen, which means that the dreamer wants to get rid of some kind of difficulty or pressure as much as possible, but is often unable to do so. In fact, when there is nothing to do, you can seek the help of others and use the power of others to help yourself tide over the difficulties.
Psychological analysis: dreaming of your wife chasing yourself, life will be very happy, husband and wife are in harmony, and love is sweet. To dream of a friend chasing oneself, one’s own difficulties will be difficult to overcome, and the help of a friend will be lost at a critical moment. Dreaming of animals chasing, you may feel unhappy because of the difficulties in work and life that cannot be solved. Dreaming of being chased by ghosts means that the dreamer will be notorious, and may also have mental problems due to the pressure of work and life. To dream of chasing someone else, all the current efforts are in vain, and it takes a lot of effort to achieve the goal. To dream that you are chasing the opposite sex, the dreamer is depressed because of being single, but there may be a person you want to appear. Content.
