Walking barefooted in a dream is also interpreted as unloading one’s burdens and relief from pressure, divorce or death in one’s family.
If one sees himself traveling barefooted, it represents a debt that he could not repay.
If one sees himself walking with one foot bare and the second fitted in the dream, it means breaking up a business partnership.

Taking refuge may be a good thing or a bad. Simply running away and hiding is useless: the threats and problems remain, and worsen. On the other hand, if finding a refuge means discovering a depth of yourself where you can fully love (accept and forgive) yourself, that may be all that is needed to dissolve a guilt- or inferiority-complex, or anger or envy.
The significance of the refuge will obviously depend largely on what you are taking refuge from. See also, for example, Animal(s), section
