You may have been chased by someone you know or it can be a complete stranger. You may dream of a certain character chasing you and it could even be a monster of some type. You may be chased by shadows, ghost, or even aliens. Truly speaking, nothing is out of the question. The fact of the matter is your being chased.

So, what does this mean?


Overall and most commonly, chase dreams represent negative emotions in your waking life. Truth be told, it can be referring to any negative emotion that your currently feeling in your waking life. You may have anxiety about a new job or a new relationship. Your chase dream may be caused by the stress of bills and everyday life. Your chase dream may have been brought on by pain, either physical, mental, or emotional.

If you are running away in your chase dream and you hide, this may mean that you are hiding from someone or something in your waking life. Think about how this reflects to your waking life. Are you hiding from a certain someone? Is there something that you are hiding from? Is something in your waking life causing you to hide or stay away?

If you are being chased in your dream or you are doing the chasing, make sure that you confront the perpetrator. This is an important step to find out the meaning of your chase dream. Is it someone that you know? Is it an animal that you know? Were you confronted by a stranger? Pay close attention to their characteristics and what they are doing. Chase dreams usually portray your own characteristics, traits, and emotions into the chaser. What they are doing, saying, or portraying may hold meaning in your waking life so pay close attention.

Some experts ask you to consider the space in between you and your chaser. If you are close to being caught, it may mean that you need to urgently resolve any issues that you may be having. If you able to escape or hide in your chase dream, this may refer that you problems may be minor. Either way, a resolution is needed.

If you are doing the chasing, this actually represents positive meaning in your waking life. If you are chasing someone or something, it may mean that you are close to achieving success in your waking life. If you are chasing someone and you catch them, it can represent that your ambitious and that you're a goal setter. However, if your chasing someone in your chase dream and you can't keep up, this can symbolize that you possibly need to work harder and strive for want you want. It may represent that you need to get in gear and keep up in your waking life.

If you are being chased in your chase dream, no matter from whom or what, it represents negativity in your waking life. No matter the scenario, you need to come up with a resolution to fix the issues. Anything that is bringing negativity to you needs to be resolved. Only you know the answer and only you can fix the problem. Your chase dream is trying to tell you that all the negativity in your life is taking a toll on you in your waking life. Believe me, dreams do have meaning. It is up to you to find out what your chase dream represents and how to resolve the issues that your having in your waking life.

      Oh boy, right on the spot with this one. I, like millions of others, have had chase dreams and usually I was the one being chased. The negative emotions were usually stress...many different reasons.

      Great hub that is right on. You are either doing a tremendous amount of research or you are a dream interpreter ;)

      Voted up, useful, and interesting.

      This was very interesting for me Ricky as recently had a dream of a bunch of little dogs chasing me - and indeed had actually been worrying over a friend's situation where they work.

      Very interesting. I do not remember my dreams for some reason, and I don't even know if I ever really dream, except maybe once in a while, I will wake up and remember a dream, but then when I fall back to sleep and wake up again, I do not remembered one thing about it. However, I have remembered two dreams that I have had in my entire life! One was a chase dream. It was when I was a child and this will sound crazy, as I see remember this dream vividly, but I was being chased by a big sumo wrestler! LOL And I could not run fast, and I had this same dream over and over. I never remember him catching me, but it would always start out in our neighbors backyard on a hill. So strange to say the least. I guess that means I had a huge negative thing going on in my life then, which was probably my dad who was suffering with PTSD, and I would hear him as a child having vivid episodes of being back in the wars. I'm just guessing?

      Voted up +++ and sharing

      God bless, Faith Reaper
