Being Chased Or Hunted Down

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. ... being chased or hunted down dream meaning

Communication Breakdown

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. ... communication breakdown dream meaning

Descending, Down

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. ... descending, down dream meaning

Down

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.

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. ... down dream meaning

Laying Down

The dreams in which you lay down in bed indicate a period of uncertainty or waiting regarding problems that you do not feel able to cope with without help. 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. ... laying down dream meaning

Uphill/downhill

Universal Landscape: Exertion or ease in your current life’s journey. Dreaming Lens: Were you going uphill or down? Was the uphill challenging? Was the downhill easy or frightening? How much further was there to go? What was waiting for you up top or down below? Was the hill an obstacle in your flow or an expected part of your movement?Personal Focus: Any path in a dream such as a road, trail, or walkway connects to your journey through life. The degree of inclination or declination is key to understanding how your unconscious is experiencing the current level of stress involved. This should be applied literally to the interpretation of how you are understanding some life experience. Consider the direction: uphill points to difficulty and challenge while downhill brings you ease and speed. Both perspectives have positive and negative associations to them. While going uphill can be exhausting and debilitating, a modicum of exertion can also be very stimulating and the accomplishment of the climb can be very satisfying. Going downhill may be easy and exhilarating, but the sense of free fall can also breed terror and create danger or misfortune. These dichotomies must be examined when coming to an accurate interpretation. Your Dreaming Lens will guide you, but you will also want to factor in your own physical abilities and/or limitations. If you are debilitated in life in some way, challenged movement in your dream could be an expression of frustration with your limitations. Similarly, ease of movement could be compensatory in some way. If the uphill journey in your dream stops your ability to move at all, you may be working out feelings of inadequacy and may be shut down in the face of a life challenge. Similarly, a downhill plunge that leads to calamity and injury could indicate the fears that are stopping your movement in life. If there is a view at the top of the hill, you may be looking at the motivating forces that underlie your current choices. If you are sailing easily and safely downhill, your unconscious may be signaling the end of a previous dilemma or signaling a need to proceed with blind faith—that no matter what the consequences, you will survive and proceed successfully. Pay attention to the road ahead and you cannot falter. ... uphill/downhill dream meaning
