Hide ‘N Seek Dream Symbol


Hide ‘N Seek – Hide ‘n seek is an interesting dream symbol that combines frustration with joy and trust. If you dream of playing hide ‘n seek with another person, you have a beneficial, playful relationship with them, and they are a person you can trust, deep down. However, you may have surface frustrations in this relationship, with the other person playing games with you. Do not let these games become the cause of real problems.

If you are the one running and hiding from the other person in the game, examine your waking-life relationship with the other person in the dream. It is good to play, but it is important to make sure you are not taking advantage of them or being mean to the other person.

  1. I had a dream that a past friend was riding in the car with me,I was driving. We were chit chatting like we always used to do. And we made a minds of the friendship. She told me while I was gone she would play hide and seek with me knowing I wasn’t there but it gave her comfort. What does this mean?

  2. I dreamed I was playing hide and seek in a gardening centre with a ghost. It really freaked me out especially when he ripped the head off a cat. But it wasn’t only me playing there were other people in my dream that I go to school with. Any idea what all this could mean?

    I dreamt I went to the language centre I used to go in a foreign country and got into the class and met a lot of young energetic girls from my country and I found it both amusing and surprised! They were both warm and welcoming. Then I saw someone (a lecturer) overlooking me from a top of a tall staircase like the ones of an oil tank. As if he doesn’t want me to see him. But he can see me clearly hanging up from there! The final part of the dream was that his colleagues asked me to arrange and staple old newspapers together and one of the pages was torn off!!

  4. I dream that I was playing hide N seek , I was running into a creepy looking bathroom(silent hill style) and a black demonic skeleton was playing with me

    • What if your playing hide and seek in a dream but it’s not another person your hiding from but some unseen thing, the other person’s hiding with you. It’s a dark house and the things seem to get closer when your alone. Then when I had multiple chances to escape I turned back for the other person. Any idea what it could mean?

      • I had a similar dream to that but I was hiding with someone else and more people were also hiding, if you were found you were dead

    • What if your playing hide and seek in a dream but it’s not another person your hiding from but some unseen thing, the other person is someone you like in that way but it’s complicated and they’re hiding with you.

  5. I had a dream where, I was playing hide-and-seek , it was all animated. I hid up in the rafters of a very tall building with no floors. This girl kept popping up in my dream, and she appeared in the Window outside the rafters. The strange thing is, she was on the other side of the map area, she opened the window grabbed my foot, I shook off her foot and she fell off the rafter, then it all became reality, it wasn’t animation anymore. She let out a blood curdling scream and I heard something collide with floor and I woke up

    Do you have any idea what this means? ;-;

    that is the dream of my book reader can you please help her?
    thankyou :*

  6. I dreamt that my boyfriend and I were playing (sinister) hide n seek inside a different dimension.. Area reminded me of a dollhouse but dark and broken. And he left me, saying that he will be back – to help us find a way back but I practically begged him to not leave me because I was scared. For the rest if the dream, he never came back.. I wasnt sure whether he abandoned me or something’s happened to him.

    A ghost found me and I forced myself to not see them as ghost-children. Instead, I tried to see them as normal children playing and innocent game of hide n seek. And so, I smiled at the little girl and told here let’s play it again and I still wanted to hide. The ghost girl agreed and counted to ten. We took turns.
    Then all of a sudden, I saw a different small, ghost girl hiding in the oven. And then when I hid behind the kitchen door for few seconds, I peeked out,only to see that the oven was on. I freaked and ran straight to the oven, opened the oven door and pulled the ghost girl out. (i dont understand how was i able to touch her when she’s a ghost?)

    When she got out, she was half burnt.. And now looks like a teenage girl with a goth-ish attitude. She was bemused by her tongue being half burnt and blackened.
    I don’t remember anything else after that.. Maybe my mind went blank before waking up?

  7. I dreamed I was playing hide n seek with a little girl I don’t not know it was creepy I was babysitting her and she kept getting on my nerves so I took her doll head off and threw it Down the stairs I jump down there to get it I realized the doll eyes were some how connected to her eyes so I start playing hide and seek making the little girl blind by covering the doll eyes and running around the house what does that mean?

  8. I had a dream that I was in a mansion with people (like a party), but seven boys that l like that are very popular were hiding inside the mansion and I somehow found them. They suddenly asked me to play hide and seek with them, and the guy I like most out of all the seven (I like all of them, but I like one of them the most) was the chaser. He almost caught us/me, but I woke up before I was caught.
