Dreams about being pursued

The Surprising Significance of Other People's Dreams

Nothing is more terrifying than a nightmare about being chased. These are the kinds of dreams that cause us to awaken from a restless night’s sleep with our hearts pounding like jackhammers.

Nevertheless, the meaning of these nightmares isn’t as frightening as you would think.

This is because the people (or animals, or monsters, or anything) chasing you in your dreams do not indicate that your brain is concerned about you being physically attacked. Instead, the creature chasing you could be a metaphor for some aspect of yourself that you are embarrassed about. In that instance, you are fleeing that person because, symbolically, you are fleeing yourself.

If that isn’t weird enough, the monster chasing you could potentially represent a positive characteristic that you are avoiding for whatever reason. The entity hunting you could represent traits you’ve been reluctant to embrace, such as stark honesty or sexual independence. In these situations, your brain is rooting for you to “get caught” and change.
