And I know this, because being chased in dreams is reported as being THE most common dream theme of all.
These bizarre creatures of our darkest nights are terribly scary, even though in reality they wouldn’t be out of place in a comedy skit!
Ok, sometimes they are genuinely scary images, but a giant potato isn't.
So what makes these images so scary in our sleep?
Chase dreams are frightening because we believe they are real at the time.
By running away screaming!
Remember that the rational part of our brain is not active while we dream. This means the part of our brain that would interrupt and say;
Being chased in dreams will usually occur when you feel threatened by some waking life situation or person. It is a natural reaction to the stress of life.
You are trying to avoid an unpleasant situation, something that you are not ready to confront.
My bet is that you will have a vague idea what it is you are running away from, but you are not yet ready to face it fully.
In addition dreams where you are trying to run away but can’t, because your legs won’t move are a sign that you feel stuck and essentially immobile in the face of whatever it is you fear.
When dealing with chase dreams, the most important questions to ask yourself are:
What are you running away from in waking life?
Is there a situation you find threatening?
Chase dreams can also be a reflection of more personal inner threats.
