I had two strange dreams last night. In one dream, I was being held hostage and chased wherever I went.
Hostage: To dream that you are a hostage, indicates that you are feeling victimized and powerlessness. You may also be feeling limited in your choices or physically immobilized. Perhaps this dream is paralleling some situation/difficulties in your daily life or relationship. Alternatively, it suggests that a part of yourself is not be fully expressed.
Chased: To dream that you are being chased, signifies that you are avoiding a situation that you do not think is conquerable. It is often a metaphor for some form of insecurity.
In the other dream, I was constantly running uphill and getting tired. I kept trying to go but it felt like my feet were bricks and the hill was getting steeper.
Running: To dream that you are trying to run but cannot make your feet move as fast as you want them to, signifies lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. It may also reflect your actual state of REM paralysis while in the dream state.
