Generally, your subconscious is trying to give your conscious mind insight into something that you might be running from in your waking state.

What Do These Dreams Really Mean?

The standard scenario of the fleeing or chase dream is the dreamer is being pursued by an attacker – an animal, person, monster, or someone unknown – who is trying to cause you harm.

In the chase dream you are on the defensive trying to evade being caught by the pursuer in your dream. You may try to simply outwit you pursuer or you may try to get away by running.  The standard feelings that one gets in the chase or flee dream is a feeling of insecurity, anxiety, being out of control, and fear.

Chase Dreams can Signal Avoidance

chase dreamsThe common interpretation for the chase dream is that you are being told by your subconscious that there is an issue or person that you have been trying to avoid. In the chase dream your pursuer matters for the meaning. If you are being chased by someone you know it could be that you fear the individual exposing something about you to others or discovering something personal. Being chased by an animal will have a different meaning than being chased by a person.

The person who is chasing you in the dream may also be a certain aspect or characteristic of yourself. If you have feelings of fear, anger, jealousy, or hate, they can often manifest themselves as a threat in a dream. The figure in your dream could also represent characteristics or feelings that you have chosen to reject.

Dreaming about being chased may also mean that you are trying to avoid something painful, uneasy or fearful of something. These feelings in the real world can often be expressed in a person’s subconscious through the act of dreaming about it. People who don’t like to confront situations in the real world and run away from their problem may have a chase or fleeing dream. It is always important to ask yourself what you are running from in the dream.

Distance Matters

The specific distance between you and your pursuer may also be relevant in the context of your dream. If the person is gaining distance on you, it could represent the problem not going away unless you deal with it head on. This might require you to confront the specific issue and address it head on. Conversely, if you are able to outrun the pursuer, it could mean that the problem can resolve itself and will fade over time.

There are also some people who have the chase dream for fear of being physically attacked in the real world. Women in particular may have a chase dream for fear of being attacked by a man or stranger. If you always see the news and media continually show images of rape and abuse, these things can often manifest themselves in a dream. To resolve this issue you might want to consider rationalizing these fears and ask yourself if they are warranted. Many people have many irrational fears due to the amount of television and news they watch on a weekly basis.

“I had a dream about being naked!” The dream of being naked or semi-nude is something that you would have experienced at some point in your life. The dreamer in the naked dream will often be going about doing a normal activity – going to school, giving a presentation, standing in line – when suddenly there is a realization of being completely naked. That act of being naked in a dream can symbolize a number of different things in the real world. The interpretation of these dreams should always be taken into context with the dreamer.

People have different perceptions about being nude or naked. Some people view nudity as a freedom of expression and go out of their way to show off their nude bodies. You will often find these people at nude beaches or other public places in the nude. Nudity for these dreamers represents something completely different than a majority of people who view nudity as embarrassing and something that should not be revealed in public. You should ask yourself how the dream made you feel? The majority of dreams involving nudity have a negative connotation associated with it.

Nude Dreams Should be Taken in Context with the Dreamer

Dreaming of being naked is a sign of great vulnerability and insecurity. You fear others seeing you for exactly what you are, and you desire to hide some part of yourself which you feel to be shameful or embarrassing. Dreaming of being naked in a crowd also represents social anxiety and the feeling of not fitting in among other people. There may also be some negative body image associated with this dream, especially if you dream specifically of others being able to see particular body flaws. You may need to gain acceptance of your body by spending some significant waking time naked, in order to stop trying to hide from yourself as well.

dream of nudityMany dreamers who find themselves in these situations will feel extremely embarrassed or ashamed when they realize they are standing in a public area with little or no clothing on. Usually these dreams reflect ones feeling of vulnerability or shame about being in that position.

There might be something that the dreamer is subconsciously hiding and scared that people might discover this secret. Because clothes are used as a form of protection from the outside world, when we strip away our clothes, we become vulnerable to people around us because we don’t have any layers of protection.

Naked Dreams can Symbol Embarrassment

Having a naked dream could mean that you are trying to cover up certain things in your life because you fear the embarrassment if others found out. You could also be trying to act in a way or do something that is not truly you. These anxieties are often presents when people are trying to make an impression on people they look up to. Someone in a new job or recently in a new relationship may have doubts about expressing certain feelings or issues about themselves.

The act of being nude or semi –nude in a dream symbolizes being caught off guard. Having your guard down makes you vulnerable to peoples judgments and opinions. If you are naked at school giving a presentation, you might not be prepared for a future project or presentation that may be due. You could also fear some of the judgment that your fellow classmates might pass on you if they found out who you really were. People often fear that others won’t accept them if they discovered who they really were. Such fear is very irrational because everyone feels these feelings at some point.

In many naked dreams others don’t realize in the dream that the dreamer is naked. Often people are going about their business without seeming to notice you standing naked in front of them. When this happens in a naked dream it means that your deep fears and concerns are often unfounded. No one cares about your fear except for you.

Dreamers who are naked with no shame or anxiety in their dream tend to have more power and freedom. Being able to expose yourself to the world with no feelings of guilt or shame shows a sense of freedom. Alternately the dream could be telling you that you are trying to attract unnecessary attention to yourself. You might be trying too hard to get noticed be people around you.

The standard definition of a dream according to most dictionaries is a succession of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind at specific stages of a sleep. The specific purpose and content of these dreams have been under much dispute over the years by people who believe dreams have different purposes.

Dreams are something that all mammals have in common. At some point in your sleep you will enter REM (rapid eye movement) and your mind will start to create a world of its own. Dreams can be as short as a few seconds or they can last 20 minutes. If you are awakened during the REM portion of your sleep you are most likely to remember your dream in the morning.

Many people consider dreams to be a deep link to your unconscious mind. They can vary from a standard situation to a bizarre and surreal experience. Dreams can offer various experiences that can make someone feel a mix of emotions such as magical, excitement, adventure, sexual and sadness. Most dreams are considered to be outside of the dreamer’s control. However, lucid dreaming is when the dreamer is self-aware that they are inside of a dream.

To some people dreams are a normal function of the body that doesn’t have any meaning or purpose. However, there are many who believe there dreams have a deeper meaning than just a daily function. A dream could be your subconscious trying to tell you something or an outside force trying to explain a past event that has happened to you. DreamStop.com operates on the assumption that your dreams have meaning.

There are many different theories on dreams with a thousand different interpretations to various dreams. People who are interested in trying to interpret their dreams should understand that there is no absolute truth in interpretations. Take the standard dream of being at a party or dinner table and realizing that you have no clothes on; this dream could be interpreted to mean a thousand different things. The key to interpreting a dream is to find an interpretation that best fits your dream. The interpretations offered at DreamStop.com are in no way absolute to the meaning of your dream. You can use a number of different resources to help you find out what your dreams mean.

 

 

Meaning: To dream of your parents could be quite an involved thing and must be sorted out by consulting the rest of your dream. By and large the dream of a father is a dream symbol of authority which this parent has held over you, it could also represent power, or strength, or discipline. A dream of a mother is usually a dream that foretells a happy conclusion concerning a love interest as a mother represents love, protection, and nourishment of the body or the spirit. If a deceased parent speaks to you in a dream you will have some very good luck. Unfortunately to dream of parents in law you will soon become involved in an embarrassing situation.

Meaning: Yikes! Murder? Are you sure? This is a biggie, so bear with me. First of all, whether you killed someone or saw someone kill someone, having death be caused anywhere in the dream depends on who was killed. Basically, anger and resentment that you can’t work out in real life may cause you to dream of murder. Fortunately, people can work it out while they’re asleep and not while you’re awake or we’d have to build a lot more prisons. So, if you killed someone you know, try to make peace with whatever hidden feelings you may have towards them. If you killed a STRANGER in your dream, this may be you trying to kill a part of your own behavior that you feel is self-destructive or shameful. Suicide is along the same lines, but a little more serious, especially if it’s a reoccurring dream. You are most likely exploring how you perceive yourself and your value as a person. This signifies a deep rooted behavior pattern that needs to be resolved. A comforting note– Some analysts believe that because our society has been so desensitized to death, that we may dream of it for more trivial reasons. Still, lots to think about.

Meaning: Ah, the mystery of death! It is probably our greatest fear and is very common to dream about. This is a long one, so get ready… Freud has a rule about figuring out what the dead person represents to you. If there is no mention, or you do not realize that the person in the dream is dead until you wake from your dream, then the dead person is really reflection of you. If you talk to the dead person and know that they are dead, then the person who is dead is probably actually that person to you. If the dead person or animal in your dream is alive in real life, then you are probably worrying about their health and safety. If the dead person you dream about is actually dead, then you are probably working through your projection about what they would think about your current situation. For example, if in real life you’re dating someone new, you might be subconsciously wondering what your mother would think about them if she were still alive. You’re getting the answer in your dream. Traditionalists would say that the spirit of your mother is actually speaking to you, it’s your choice what you believe, but either way you should listen.

Meaning: Let’s see. If you’re simply referring to time in your dream as ‘most of the time’ or ‘one at a time’, you don’t need to read on. If time is of the essence and you are rushed or late this could be a warning not to be caught late for an important appointment. In other words, this is probably a fear dream pointing at the fact that you have a real life appointment that you have a fear of blowing… the dream is only mirroring your fear.

Meaning: As in waking life, dreaming of or seeing a relative or spouse in your dream is an important symbol. Dreaming about family members is very common. One theory about this is that everyone is searching for a ‘normal’ family life and your dreams explore and sometimes reject your ideas of what ‘normal’ is. Many people have reoccurring dreams about certain family members, this may be necessary for your subconscious to continue working on balancing what you wish your place in the family structure to be and what it really is. If you see a family that is not yours in your dream, what is different about them?

Meaning: Seeing a girl in your dream is a pretty straightforward symbol of the feminine inner child. The younger the girl, the more sensitive your inner child is feeling at the present. Could be telling you to play more, take it easy. If the girl in your dream was in trouble at all, well maybe you need to take care of yourself a bit.

Meaning: Much like other vehicles, dreaming of seeing a car or riding in a car may be your subconscious trying to control a situation. Look at the other symbols in your dream, i.e. where are you driving to? Who are you driving with? And what is happening while you are driving to find out what you are trying to control. What color is the car? Try a symbol search on the color to reveal more.

Meaning: First of all, dreams involving your friends are very common and can be interpreted many ways. They could symbolize emotions and fears you have about that person in the waking hours or they may also be your mind projecting parts of yourself onto an image of your friend so you have an easier time dealing with a problem. In other words, your dream friend may represent your alter ego, or the part of yourself that you keep hidden in your waking life. Ask yourself, what is your friend doing in your dream that you may be repressing in life?

Home sweet home. Well, according to Carl Jung, a house usually represents how you see yourself, or how you think others see you. You can divide the house into different parts of your consciousness, i.e. going into the attic means going into your ‘rational’ head, going into the cellar is a trip into your unconscious. The condition of the house in your dream is key: If it’s dilapidated and neglected, or negative in general for you to be there, then you may be feeling frustrated with yourself or your image of yourself these days. If its pleasant and warm, then you are probably pretty satisfied… If the house is your childhood home, than this dream may be telling you a lot about feelings you had as a child. Pay attention.
