Maze Dream Symbol


Maze – Dreaming of a maze is a symbol of frustration and a lack of direction in one’s life. You may feel as if someone else is using or manipulating you (“a rat in a maze”). Alternatively, you may simply be in an overwhelming situation without a clear idea of how you got there or how to get out again. If you feel fear in connection to being in a maze, then either the situation or the people controlling the confusing situation are threatening.

Alternatively, this may be a warning against a choice you are considering making. If you do not feel fear with regards to the maze, then the situation you find yourself in is a positive one, and you are able to view your current dilemma as a challenging puzzle rather than as a threat.

If you dream about watching others in a maze, then you are in a position of authority over someone, and are causing confusion in their life. Be careful about the possibility that you might be causing someone else anguish by your choices.

  1. I used to have a recurring dream when I was younger about being in a maze game. Each person in the dream was split into a team (I was always red) and the first to the centre won a giant ball of gum. When walking through the maze I could hear whispering and people talking. You’d know if someone had made it to the centre because the entire board the maze was on would tip, and all the losers would fall off. The red team were rubbish, we’d always lose. The worst part about this dream was that every time I’d wake up from it and be alone in a dark room, I’d have auditory hallucinations. I could hear the whispering and my balance would always be off, and my sight would be blurry.

    Hi.. I dreamt that I am in a maze and m enjoying solving it. Following that there s a dark room and I want to explore but others are skeptical. Then we start climbing a ladder I get stuck at the top but as I was trying hard..someone woke me up and I couldn’t see what happened. I always get such vivid dreams.! What does this one mean..

  4. In my dream i am running through a house that acts sort of like a maze. I pass through many doors that open into more rooms and hallways, a lot of stairs that are slippery. Hot on my tail is a black wolf. This wolf is chasing and i get the feeling it wants to attack. It never caught me. I woke up shortly after meeting an old woman that was sweet and happy to make my acquaintance. She was wearing yellow rain gear.

    If you have any ideas you should throw them my way. It was a very interesting dream. My email address should be sufficient for now. Thank you for your time.

    • I’ve literally just woke up from a dream so similar to yours. I was running from a young chubby boy in a house that felt like a maze and i was going through all these doors, ruining up so many stairs until i opened a room that a older lady lived in. She calmed me down and told me he couldn’t get me and if he did she’d protect me.
