Walking Backward Dream Symbol


Walking Backward – Dreaming about walking or falling backward is a strong archetype that indicates fear and loss of control. If you are specifically walking backward, you may be having trouble paying bills or attaining a goal in your life. Focusing on attaining the goal is sometimes not the best course of action. Instead, focus on the journey you are taking. If you are falling backward in your dream, your subconscious is telling you that you are completely without any control in your life. Regaining a sense of control and taking back one thing for yourself is crucial for your spiritual wellbeing.

    I can’t seem to find anything about *other* people in front of me walking backward, as I walk forward easily, at a pretty steady clip. What sort of meaning could that point to?

  2. Walking forward is almost impossible. I can grab stuff & pull myself forward but otherwise it’s like I’m in water being pulled backward. If I turn around I can easily walk backward but I can’t see where I’m going. It is so stressful & frightening
