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 most common type of nightmare or bad dream is the one in which you are being chased or hunted down by something or someone. According to Jung, being chased or stalked as prey is a primal memory of your human collective unconscious and may refer to early times in the history of humankind when it was common to be chased, often to the death, by an animal.
If you are being chased in your dream it is important to think about who or what was chasing you, and then ask yourself whether there is anyone or anything in your life that reminds you of your pursuer.... The Element Encyclopedia
Dreams of a breakdown signify that you are in the midst of major transformation, processing your way through the changes in your life, and breaking out of a pattern or identity that no longer fits you.

If you hear a message in a dream which you know to be important but simply cannot understand, even if it is in your own language, this is a clear symbol of frustration in waking life. A similar scenario would be if you are trying to explain something to someone but cannot make yourself understood. Both dreams speak of times in your life when, for some reason, communication is blocked, or you are misreading the emotions of someone or they are misreading you.
If you dream that you have muddled your words, this suggests a vain struggle to attract the attention of someone in your dream. The inability to say the right words when you meet them may symbolize feelings of inadequacy in real life or a deep sense of frustration that the important people in your life, or the people you respect and admire, do not appreciate or even notice you. One of the most distressing scenarios in a dream is when you try to talk or cry out but have no voice.
If you have such a dream, try to work out who is not hearing you in waking life; do you need to listen more and give your voice a rest?
Tripping up in public, forgetting your words when giving a speech, treading on someone’s toes in a dance, or spilling food and drink over a VIP can all betray a deep sense of social inadequacy, even with regard to people close to you. Perhaps your ineptitude masks an element of defiance, expressing your feelings of frustration with the stifling rules and norms of social convention.
If someone you know appears in a dream but you find yourself unable to recognize them, this suggests feelings of frustration or ambivalence towards that person in waking life. A similar sense is conveyed if you are looking on as a spy whilst a friend or lover commits a crime, or an illicit or compromising act.... The Element Encyclopedia
Usually we live on the surface of our mind. In sleep we dive down deeper but lose our sense of self.
If we maintain some awareness in these deeps of the mind, it is somewhat like snorkelling in deep sea; we realise what immense and unbelievable depths lie beneath us. Dreams often portray this as depth—a hole, deep water, a chasm; space; our non-verbal life in the womb, or early childhood, which is remembered as patterns of feeling reaction rather than verbal utterance. In the depths we may find gems, skeletons, archaeological objects, and these relate to the memory of our evolutionary past, family influences we carry within us unknown. Deep cuts: suggests a hurt which penetrates us; or emotions which affect us powerfully. Idioms: in deep water, in the deep end; deeply troubled; deeply hurt. ...

Any sense of depth, particularly going down, in a dream usually represents the unconscious mind.

Example: ‘1 look down and the stairs and bannister rail are swarming alive with a black moving wave of crawling things, like some awful insects; and in the hallway is a swamp with crocodiles and other hideous things. My terror is terrible and I cry out to stop dreaming this nightmare.
The person who actually lived in this part of the house was the owner’s mother. She treated me badly but no one knew as she was artful in her abuse. She pulled me along by my hair, locked me in a cupboard, and once locked me in the orchard—four high walls and a hidden door’ (Rita). Something below us: as in Rita’s dream, where there is fear, it can depict past trauma which is not being faced (literally run away from); something we have left behind or we feel ‘above*.
Descent, going down stairs or in a lift: getting more down to eanh or practical; a return to difficulties after living in our fantasies or escapism, depression; sexual restraint; a return from meta conception (see aura). Descending into cave, cellar, hole: awareness of unconscious content, experience of womb existence. Example: Then I was climbing down a steep hill. Arriving at the foot I found rippling sparkling water. I stopped and looked around and found everything incredibly beautiful—the green fields and the pebbles in the water, the soft fresh air, then I looked up and the sky was a glorious picture, the sun so warm and the clouds fluffy and soft and pretty. I felt at peace and so happy, and thanked God with all my heart for giving us so much beauty’ (Mrs RE). Going down a hill: can mean loss of status, ageing, failure or death, but is also, as shown in the example, a positive sense of life after death. Idioms: feel down; down and out, down in the dumps; down to earth. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

In this world that is divided into binary code, there are always two options in any polarity.
The up-down continuum relates directly to the strongest force we deal with: gravity. When anything in a dream is moving in a downward direction, you are either exploring what is below the surface or being stopped in your forward movement by something that is forcing you down. Consider how this downward direction is being presented to you and then remember to explore what wisdom is available for you in the lower depths.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

If you are lying down outdoors, something that is causing you suffering is nothing more than a passing concern, not as serious as you originally thought.
If you are sharing your bed with a person of the same sex, in addition to the aforementioned uncertainty, this reflects a concern about what others might think of you. Conversely, if it is a person of the opposite sex, chances are the problems will be solved soon.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams

Motivation to pursue advancement. Or loneliness. Life needs to be better organized. This is a dream that almost always calls on your inner guide, or how you are guiding others. Can you lead and still let others lead you?... Little Giant Encyclopedia
(1) Bearing in mind that the T in dreams is almost invariably your conscious ego, you may be fairly sure that leading others (people or animals) in a dream means you are - or that you should be-in control of your unconscious forces; of your emotions; or of your life-situation.
(2) If in the dream you are being led, who or what is leading you? If it is a person of the opposite sex, it may be your anima / animus. If
so, you must distinguish between leading and controlling: that your anima / animus should take you by the hand and show you things you had never deigned to look at - in yourself - before, is good; but an anima / animus that wants to take over the whole psyche is overcompensating for having been neglected - so now is the time to stop neglecting it and denying it a place in your conscious life (for anima / animus, see Brother / Sister, sections (4)-(6)).
Alternatively, he, she or it could represent some (unconscious) attitude or instinctive drive. Where are you being led: towards your true self or astray?
(3) Is the leader an authority figure? If so, he or she may represent either some actual person (father, for instance) or some belief-system (a dogmatic religious or other institution) that is influencing you, perhaps to the extent of moulding you. The dream may be telling you that your life should be ruled from within, not from outside.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols
To dream that you lead something shows that you are taking control of certain facets of your life. For example, if you walk a dog in the dream, it may be a reference to your sexual nature.

The path is a classic symbol of the direction your life is taking. A rocky path suggests obstacles in your way. When a path suddenly inclines uphill, Freudians would interpret the climb as a desire for sex.
If you are traveling alone, this suggests independence or loneliness.
If you are traveling in a group, pay attention to the people accompanying you. Are they helping or hindering your progress? Traveling companions suggest your involvement with others in life or the feelings and attitudes that influence you and give you direction.
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.
If you are following a trail of footsteps in your dream, perhaps this reflects your sense to follow someone else’s example in waking life. An open road suggests a desire for freedom, whereas a narrow road suggests constraints.

The road or path in a dream suggests our own individual way forward.

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

Unlike rivers and seas, lakes, lagoons, pools, ponds and puddles are typically still, so if they feature in your dream, they could be reflecting your emotional calm.
If a lagoon appears mysteriously, reminding you that still waters run deep, this could be referring to your own hidden strengths or weaknesses. Some dream researchers believe that lagoons in dreams are symbols of the womb, so perhaps when they appear in a dream, you are longing to retreat to a safe haven.
If you are a woman, they may refer to a desire for children and if you are a man, a longing for intimacy. Dream ponds can also reflect your unconscious personality, facets of which will be represented by the creatures who live in it.
If your dream pond is lifeless and stagnant, is your emotional life currently unfulfilling? If you watched a fish swim to the surface, could it have represented the emergence of your intuition? If the pool suddenly transforms into a whirlpool or maelstrom, this suggests emotional turbulence or confusion in waking life.... The Element Encyclopedia

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
