Being chased is one of the most common reported themes occurring in dreams. While it could definitely represent a fear of actual physical danger in real life, it could also represent something mental. Being chased in a dream may be representative of an anxiety you have in your waking life. In order to solve the problem, put some thought into who or what may be causing you this anxiety – it may even be an aspect of your own self that is causing you to run.
The way you react to your chaser shows how you choose to deal with this anxiety. Do you run away? Hide? Try to outsmart the person chasing you? Confronting the chaser in your dream may show that you’re ready to tackle the issue in real life.
Take note of the distance between yourself and the chaser, as well. The closer the chaser is to you, the bigger the issue is in your life. If your chaser seems to be catching up to you quickly, the anxiety in your waking life is likely to be becoming more bothersome. A chaser getting lost in the distance behind you, however, may show that the issue in your waking life is starting to fade away.
The next time you dream of being chased, stop and ask yourself who or what you’re running away from in your waking life. Is there an issue in your personal life that you’ve been avoiding? Could you be avoiding confronting a certain fear or emotion within yourself? Once you ask yourself these questions, it may become clear why you’ve had such a dream. Think about how to confront your “chaser”, and take action to relieve yourself from these waking-life anxieties.
