If you appear in an alley within a dream, you may find yourself facing a dilemma in the near future. The image suggests that you may feel you have little choice while an avenue, street or path in good condition may indicate support for the direction you wish to take. Paths in dreams signify the direction you have decided to take in life; the type of path, and whether it is smooth, rocky, winding or straight, may be as important as the path itself. A rough track does not have a negative meaning if the journey was interesting and you felt confident in your dream about following it. A path can often represent the way you feel a relationship or situation is developing. It can also suggest a way to follow up a line of inquiry.
To dream that you are in a corner or see a corner signifies feelings of frustration and lack of control in making decisions. You may feel trapped and cornered in waking life. To turn a corner indicates that you are moving forward in your life, despite the obstacles in your path. You are no longer feeling trapped or restricted, and feel that you can handle the unexpected or new experiences.
You have gained a new and positive perspective on life. To be turning a right- handed corner indicates a logical course of action, whilst to turn a left-handed corner indicates a more intuitive approach to life.... The Element Encyclopedia

The defences we use, such as pnde, beliefs, anger, to protect ourselves from deeply feeling the impact of the world, relationships, love, anxiety or pain. These are often felt as traps or restraints, even though they are parts of our own personality.
For instance one may feel trapped by one’s own feelings of dependence upon family.
Example: ‘1 am trapped in a bricked room with no way out and I shout for somebody to help me. Then either a big bird or a creature with long arms tries to catch me, and I scream’ (Karen S). Karen had previously lost a baby, been divorced, had an unsatisfying relationship with a man. She feels trapped by the defences she has herself built ‘brick by brick’, but is frightened of the opportunity of change represented by the bird. What encloses or traps us in our dream gives a clue to what constrains us in waking.
Example: ‘As I go through a tunnel it either gets smaller so I can’t get through, or it goes on so far there is no end to it. I am trapped and terrified’ (Don M). This son of enclosed dream is typical of trauma relating to a difficult binh. In fact Don’s mother was in labour for four days, and never had another child because of the pain. ...

If the path was wide, open and straight, the sun was shining, you had a clear view ahead and were walking with confidence, this suggests optimism, independence, well-being and a sense of direction in life.
If, however, the dream path is foggy, hazy or you are walking in darkness, the message is that you have lost your focus. The same would apply if you are struggling to push your way through foliage or other obstacles, such as rocks, holes and other pitfalls.
If you overcame the obstacles, the message is that you will find a way of doing so in waking life; if you gave up, this suggests that you feel defeated.
If you felt frustrated that you could not move as fast along the path as you would have liked, this also suggests obstacles inflicted on you by others or by yourself.

Crossroads will offer choices, while a cul-de-sac would signify a dead end or non-success.

There is one form of communication that requires no paper, pen, computer or phone: thought transference or telepathy. Although the jury is still out as to whether telepathy is a real phenomenon or not, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that it is; you may have experienced it yourself in dreams. For example, if you had a dream of your much-loved cousin being badly injured in a car crash, and then woke to receive news that he had been involved in such a car crash during the night, your cousin may have communicated his pain telepathically to you. In most cases, telepathy is thought to occur between two people who have a very close or empathetic relationship and the sender may often be unaware of transmitting their emotions to the receiver. The most common published accounts of telepathy and ESP are between lovers or family members, and focus on a life-threatening injury or death. Psychics believe these people are able to tune into each other’s frequencies as they are so close to each other emotionally; a twin brother, for example, will sense the pain of his twin sister. In times of crisis, we send out our message and those who are in tune will pick it up.
Another example of dream telepathy is called shared dreaming, in which people try to meet up with each other in dreamland or to dream of the same landscape.... The Element Encyclopedia
To dream that you have telepathy, signifies a personal and highly spiritual message from your unconscious. You need to pay more attention to what people are telling you and trying to convey to you.... My Dream Interpretation
You may experience dreams in which you pick up emotions or experience the same situations as others. For example, you dream of a loved one being rushed to hospital only to find in the morning that this is in fact the case and your father has had a stroke. In most cases, telepathic dreams occur between people who are close to each other; for example between family members, married couples or close friends. These dreams will be generally be for and about you; but if you really do not think this is the case, keep your mind open to the possibility that you may have been picking up sensations or feelings from loved ones.
If you are an empathic or sensitive person and know you are prone to such dreams, you can easily recognize them to avoid confusion.... The Element Encyclopedia
