Common Dream Theme- Running from Someone

If you are running from someone you do not know in a dream, that typically means there is a repressed aspect of yourself that you’re afraid of facing.

Running through a maze indicates confusion and being lost.

If you’re running away from someone (as I was last night- who kept trying to shoot me) and getting lost in a maze, it typically is trying to show you that there is some hidden aspect in yourself you’re trying to repress out of fear or anxiety. It is also important to take other emotions and other parts of the dream into context. In my case, they kept shooting and missing, there was a large group of other people (both men and women, all strangers) who were telling them they were overreacting, saying I wasn’t the bad person they thought I was and who were standing up for me) but the guy chose to keep shooting. In the end, he did hit me- in the arm and it barely left a scratch. (two small holes, my cat iwl has left worse marks on me)

What the dream seemed to be telling me was that I’m running from some aspect of my personality or self and that I feel a lot of fear and anxiety but it’s all too much of a reaction and if I accept it, it’ll prove to not hurt or leave as much of a mark as I am worried it would. Running through the maze shows confusion (I kept getting lost, stuck and held back from running). It had me literally running in circles and unable to escape the shooter who was right behind me. There were two colors that really stood out- red and yellow.

Red usually shows fear, anger, passionate anger (rage) and yellow can symbolize fear, betrayal, disease.

In retrospect, the dream I mentioned (I had it last night- it ended up lucid with me realizing half way through that I was dreaming that dream a second time) could be a warning about someone who I made mad who is trying to hurt me (betrayal) but other people aren’t buying it (all the strangers trying to talk the person out of shooting me)

When you’re analyzing a dream, it’s best to look at all possible meanings of the symbols, look at the major symbols, and either meditate (or pray) to try to gain clarity. I’ll personally turn to the tarot or even my crystal to gain better understanding.

If you have any dream themes you have that you’d like more insight, message me and I’ll create the same type of dream analysis (or blog post if I feel the theme could help others- I’ll leave personal details out and keep all themes anonymous)

Dream Meaning 1- Conflicts in Dreams

There are many different types of conflicts-

1. Screaming and yelling matches (when you hear screaming in a dream, pay attention to the message that’s being yelled- it’s usually your intuition trying to get a message across)

2. Violent fights without weapons

3. Violent fights with weapons (I’m dealing with guns and knives specifically in this post but will mention aside that if you smack someone in the head with a blunt weapon, it’s usually that you feel you’re trying to “knock some sense into someone” in your waking life- if you get hit, good chance someone in your life is trying to get you to see something that you’re refusing to see)

and last

4. group fights, gang fights or one on one fights

There are limited people you can be fighting against, your lover, friends/family/people you know, strangers and shadows.

All conflicts in dreams show conflict going on in your waking life. It can show you have repressed anger, aggression, rage or resentment

It can help you see if you have healthy or unhealthy coping methods to dealing with conflict

It can bring hidden relationship issues to light that you know about but are consciously ignoring

They can also help you figure out how to end an on going battle you’re having with someone.

1 on 1 conflicts

If you’re having a fight with someone you’re close to in real life, it can be due to the anxiety you’re feeling over the relationship. Pay close attention to the reason you’re fighting- that typically will show what your insecurity is.

If you’re fighting with your spouse or significant other dealing with another man or woman, chances are it’s an insecurity based dream dealing with feeling like you’re not attractive enough or you’re not good enough in other areas. It could also be showing that you have insecurities over his/her relationship with that person.

Dreams about subjects you have normal fights over are usually your mind trying to find a way to end the cycle and bring the conflict to a close, especially if it’s a recurring fight or is always brought back up when you argue over other stuff.

If your partner stabs you, it means they did something in your waking life that feels like you’ve been betrayed and if you stab them, it is from a guilty conscious and you betrayed them in some way.

Shooting them, on the other hand, could be repressed resentment or anger towards something they said or did or it could be sexual frustration if it’s been a while since you guys have had any time together.

If you see blood, chances are through the anger and fighting (in your waking life) the relationship is or can be healthy and it has potential to survive. Blood is life- without it, no one can survive. If you shoot or stab and don’t see blood, that usually means the relationship is either dead or close to dying.

If you’re fighting with a stranger one on one who is the same gender as you, there is an internal conflict going on. Pay attention to the things that stand out about the person you’re fighting against.

If certain personality traits come out, those traits are either repressed in you and wanting to be let out or they’re traits you’re wanting to take on yourself. They could also be insecurities you’re wanting to kill off (in the case of shooting another more attractive woman- it could be that you’re dealing with insecurities based on your weight or your looks, if the woman you killed has a strong temper, you could be dealing with repressed anger or even rage issues)

If you’re fighting with a member of the opposite sex, they could be showing traits you have that are considered more “masculine” or “feminine” that you’re trying to hide or get rid of due to sociatial pressures. It could show traits you’re embarassed to have or are embracing. When dealing with these dreams, pay attention to the details.

Gang fights tend to mean you’re feeling like a group of people are ganging up on you or you’re feeling overpowered in an area in your personal life.

If you’re shooting a stranger that looks like you, it means you’re trying to kill off an aspect of your personality or trying to bring an issue from the past to a close.

If you’re fighting a shadow person, it shows fear and anxiety over an unknown area. If you over power them, it shows you are trying to get past the fear and are close to succeeding but if they over power you, it shows the fear winning out.

Why it’s sometimes difficult to study your own dreams

Often you’re too close to the subject to see it objectively. That’s where people like me come in. I have devoted my life to studying everything I can find about dreams. I have studied the psychological and symbolic nature behind what dreams are trying to tell you. I have been interpreting peoples’ dreams for years and kept a journal of my own since I was in middle school.

I’ll be creating a dream journal to help you focus on your own dreams.

Often, our dreams are our mind’s attempt to put pieces together and figure tough situations out. They can also serve as warnings when you’re heading in the wrong direction or about to do something destructive. At times they can be caused by fears and anxieties when an event is coming up (new trip, new job, new relationship or pregnancy being a few of the changes)

Most dreams should not be taken at face value (for example- dreaming you’re pregnant usually doesn’t mean you need to set up an appointment with your OB, being pregnant in a dream means you’re starting a new project or new chapter of your life. Dreaming of death doesn’t meant to get your living will straightened out, it typically just means there is a part of your life that’s coming to an end or a chapter closing with a new one opening soon.

Most of the time, when we dream, we’re too close to the subject of the dream and we can’t see things subjectively. We can’t figure out exactly what the dream is telling us unless it’s an outcome or message we want to hear. Keeping a journal with all the details (including colors, shapes, symbols, people, places, and everything else you can remember) then waiting a while and going back over the dream at a later date can help create enough distance to see the dream clearer. I’ll be posting tips and tricks, symbols and other dream related things on this blog.

I’d love to hear from you all- what types of questions do y’all have about dreams?

This coming June I’m taking my first ever paid vacation from work

Since I’ll have a full week off, I have decided that the month of June I am going to try to do one post a day and come up with either 1 post or one article to submit to a magazine or blog every day through June.

Coming up with ideas shouldn’t be too difficult.

I have 11 more days in this month and I’ll be brainstorming topics (privately) and I’ll try to come up with 30 varied posts.

When I lost you

When I lost you, not only did I lose getting to know a person. I also lost hopes and dreams for the future. I lost everything I drempt you would be and every potential achievement you could have made. I lost a tiny hand in my hand and a chance to be your mommy.

I lost seeing you smile, hearing you talk, hearing you laugh and picking you up when you fell.

I always wonder if you would be more like your daddy or me. Would you look like a mix of both of us or favor one more?

Would you be an artist, athlete or studious? Would you prefer cats or dogs?

Would you be girly like your sisters or the tomboy of the group? What would your favorite flower be? Favorite color?

What would your personality be like? Would you love or hate school?

When I lost you I have so many questions I will never know the answer to and I will never get to experience.

When you died, so did those hopes and dreams for the future. Your future. My future as your mommy and our future as a family
