Dream interpretation Running

Regardless of whether or not you run on a regular basis, a dream of running can still have some important symbolic meaning. In fact, if you find that the way you run in a dream does not match your current physical level, you may want to pay even more attention to the other events in this dream, as well as how they compare to various areas of your life. Needless to say, if you feel danger in the dream, or you are being chased, then you may not want to ignore the possibility that this dream may have some precognitive aspects.

General Dream Meaning: Running

If you were running in your dream without little effort, it usually means you will be able to achieve your goals. That said, if you were running away from something, as opposed to being in a race, then the dream may indicate that you are trying to avoid something. If you have a hard time running, or your feet feel stuck, then you should look for situations that may be robbing you of your self-esteem. In some instances, dreaming of not being able to move while running may also indicate you are suffering from sleep paralysis.

How Dream Symbol Running may Fit in your Life

A dream of running can give you some good indicators about how you feel about your progress towards various goals. If you find that running in a dream does not match with your waking reality, then it may be time to examine each situation in order to find out if there are hidden factors. Aside from making use of your intuitive abilities to avoid various problems, you may just uncover any number of appealing opportunities. Needless to say, if you dream of being chased, or notice other things that create an emotional disturbance, this dream will also give you a chance to do some repair work on your inner landscape.

A Sample Dream meaning and Running Dream Interpretation

Consider a dream where you are about to begin running a marathon. Once the race begins, you start off slowly, and feel an immense amount of power. Despite that you do not rush, and simply want to enjoy the race. As you continue to run, you continually remind yourself that you do not think you will win. The landscape changes, and all of as sudden, you see your arch enemy just ahead. Instantly, you are galvanized to run faster. Even though you still believe you aren't going to win the race, you run faster and faster. Finally, you approach the finish line, and realize that you can win. With a final burst of speed, you brush past your enemy and find that you have won the race. When you look back at your enemy, you are surprised to find that it is now a former lover that you had broken up with years ago.

In this particular dream, you should keep sight of the fact that it was always easy for you to run. Even though your feelings about your abilities were not accurate, you were able to keep up with the group, as well as enjoy the scenery around you. This indicates that in your daily life, you may feel that you are not as competent or as capable as you actually are. That said, once you see your enemy, the challenge of doing better kicks in. Since you are able to meet the additional demands on your body, it is a clear indicator that you can be doing better in your life. When you turn around and discover that the enemy is an old lover, you can conclude that this dream refers to your love life.

If you happen to be in a relationship that satisfies you, it may be of some help to look at your inner landscape. Do you feel bored, or find that you aren't being pushed to grow as an individual. Are you often wondering if you can find someone else that you will have more passion with? Regardless of what comes up, you may want to compare these feelings to what you felt for your ex while you were on good terms. From there, you can begin to take steps to bring fulfilling changes to your current relationship, or start thinking about looking for a partner that will be more suitable for your needs.

What if there is nothing in my life I am running from but lately every dream I've had has been running? They always start so peaceful. I'm having a picnic or I'm in a store or a church then suddenly boom! Something happens and I'm running. It is almost always running from something that is not alive. Like a mist that if I slack off and fall back it turns into goop on contact with my skin and burns me alive. Often I'm with other people and they fall behind and I fall back on purpose to retrieve them or something. But in real life I'm not trying to avoid anything that's why I'm so confused. And these dreams are disturbing what little sleep I get because of my crazy work and school schedule. I'm at a loss here.

I had a dream last night that I was at a huge futuristic mall. There was this jack black looking guy who chased me everywhere. I got out of this pod thing and he greeted me when I walked out. I told him to go away and I started sprinting on this trail that used to run in cross country. Then I climbed a few fences and over to a crowded play ground. Still he followed me as I hurried the kids down the slide so I could hide in there. Eventually I slid down and hid under slide when the guy saw me inside the slide and decided to come down. I ran off from the playground and into the never ending mall. There were thousands of people crowded everywhere. Then I decided to run back to my pod. At my pod I was falling asleep when the guy broke in and shattered the pod and looked at me like he was going to kill me.Then I woke up

This was quite a long dream and long ago, so ill make it quick!. I was venturing around in this hotel and every door was filled with amazement. I even remember entering a room where i was standing next to an extremely intelligent being and we where constructing massive geometric shapes and colors in the universe.
Later on i left the hotel with my family, people were partying like animals in there! I had to go back inside to fetch something, but for some reason I started walking down the road past the hotel. I kept walking further and further down. It became darker and darker. I stopped before crossing the second bridge(there was complete darkness, no lights what so ever) - I knew if i crossed it i might not come back alive. I filled with paranoia. black-figured people where walking down the road in groups of two. I started walking back frantically. preparing myself for a fight when i passed people. As i got further up the long road i started jogging and then running and running even faster! i started passing speeding cars and felt amazing. Around a bend, i had to slow down, i saw a massive and humble tiger lying in the road. eventually i got back to the hotel but i wasnt running anymore i was in a car and I nervously parked it, almost hitting a few things!

I had a dream that my stepfather was chasing me. First i ran from his house to the library, where he found me, this is where i started running.
I leapt down staircases and jumped over desks with ease. Next thing you know, im back at the house, looming with shadows. I run in, and suddenly im spent. I still run, and hes on my tail, reaching out with his hand. I tried to dodge into a bathroom, but i was so scared, i woke up, the feeling of icy daggers rushing through my body. Now i live in constant fear of him, andbit makes it worse that we live in the same house.

I had a really nice dream last night. In my real life I play soccer but when we go out to run I usually get left behind and run out of breath easily, but in my dream I was running alone for a very long distance and still didn't feel tired or sweaty. I was going really fast almost sprinting. Then I came across a type of square area surrounded by a stone fence and an arched door that lead into a Mexican type town. Then for some reason I just wanted to keep running in that area so I just ran back a and forth. I did a lot of sprints, so many that I even lost count and I still did not feel tired. After that I got into town and ran all the way around till I ended up in a house and met a lot of people but among them was a really really handsome boy and I talked with him for some minutes and then we started running again and then I woke up

I had the weirdest dream last night. It starts off with me surrounded with a bunch of people. Then I end up alone in this creepy ally. And I'm running away from this person who came off as a really cool person. From re ally I end up in a hallway running towards a flower (Petunia). I never make it to the flower because the person that was chasing me turned out to be an evil spirt who then kills me.

In my dream. I'm running - but my feet hardly touch the ground. My running steps are far between. No effort, I get where I'm going quickly.

I dreamed that I was at a friend's apartment complex and they were holding a race for the children that lived there. I am a track coach and therefore was interested in watching the race. The children were running around the courtyard which was lined with bushes. I noticed a slighly disabled girl trying to complete the race so I grabbed her by the hand and started running with her. Along the way there was a boy who was giving up, so I grabbed him by the hand. As we ran towards the finish line I saw one of my coworkers watching me. We ran through the finish line as they were giving the top three runners their medals. Then the official gave the two children I was running with their own medal for completing the race.

I dreamt that my boyfriend and I were sitting on a hill. And I started running downhill from him in a really playful manner. I kept looking back at him to chase me for 3 times, until he got up with the biggest smile and ran after me, like we were playful little kids in love.While I was running from him, I had tears of joy, due to the fact that he was running behind me. I was running uphill and once he caught me, we were standing on top of a hill and kissed and hugged underneath the stars. This dream made me cry tears of joy once I woke up, I was emotionally devastated it was such a strong dream, because I have been having doubts about our relationship, but it was like this dream was telling me to hold on, because we will make it uphill and he will follow me downhill to get on top of a different hill then he was sitting on. Anyone who wants to tell me their thoughts about it?

I've had the same dream twice now, in a row. It wasn't exactly the same but I was running. Running so fast, so free, it was amazing. Definitely not in any shape to run that fast (like a superhero kind of fast), anyone know what these could mean??

I had the same dream for years. I'd just run and run and run without getting tired. Loved it. However, I'd wake up sad knowing that I could never run that much without being beat red and out of breath. Now, a couple of years since I've had that dream, I'd forgotten about it. Suddenly, I picked up running for exercise and next thing you know? I loved it. Just completed a half marathon last month and training for a full a marathon this year! Not only that, but I was asked to be the cross country coach next year! Me???! The kid who lied and said she was sick every P.E. Class so I wouldn't have to run the mile! Lol! Now, I feel like a 4-5 mile run is a breeze. So, do I think recurring dreams can be premonition sometimes?? I don't know. But, in my case? That definitely happened!!

had the strangest dream last night. don't know how it started. i remember feeling happy with my boyfriend. a strange woman asked us to come over to her. now the dream gets weird. she dropped a bomb or something that cause me and my boyfriend to run for our lives but in different directions. i was separated from him, scared and lost. seems like a lot of time passed before i saw him again. he looked happy with other people. i ran towards him so happy to see him finally to have him back. but he wasn't as happy to see me. he had found someone else. and i burst into tears and he just stood there. i dropped to my knees sobbing and woke up and remembered it so clearly crying and crying. i haven't seen him today he's at work and i feel so weird and confused about my dream. we have had issues recently with him reading my phone but he's never cheated on me and I'm crazy about him so i don't understand why i would dream such an upsetting dream. help!
