The most usual dream in respects to being chased if that you really feel someone is following you or you have a feeling someone is behind you.
  • Unable to move or run: if you find yourself physically unmovable in your dream and the chaser is drawing near you, then this shows that you need to grow up and grow some sense of accountability and the need to mature emotionally and physically.
  • Cannot see your chaser: this means you cannot picture them. In this case the pursuer is, in reality, part of you and this dream specifies that you need to discover the emotional state within or change your attitude towards an area of your occupation.
  • Chased by people at work or school: if you are being chased in a dream by work associates or people at school, then this signifies that you may feel that you are not working as firmly as you should.
  • Your reaction: The way you reacted to the person who chased you imitates the way you deal with that issue in real life.

2 Mistakes in Interpreting Chasing Dreams

Most people understand dreams erroneously because they always make 2 highly usual mistakes.

  • The first is considering that the dream signifies something that is yet to occur while in fact 99% of dreams embody something that has previously taken place. When you dream that somebody is chasing you, it doesn't actually indicates that someone will pursue you in reality but means that your intuition is trying to notify you that something is taking place right now using its own signs.
  • The other error people make is that when they infer dreams, they think every symbol has a common meaning globally. In fact, each sign can have a dissimilar meaning based on the being who saw it. If two persons dreamed of being chased in their respective dreams, then both dreams can have a totally different meaning.
