Tell Me Your Wildest Dreams!
Every Wednesday I venture away from romantic/erotic fiction writing to interpret your dreams. Have a recurring or puzzling dream? Send it to and I'll try to shed some light on Wild Dreams Wednesday!

This Week's Wildest Dream:

“I dreamt it was night, and some strange guy I knew in the dream was acting threatening. The police came and started chasing him off. Instead of waiting I ran the other way--along a deserted dark vacant lot. Two guys in a van drove up. I got scared in the dream, thinking they could throw me in that van and take off. Sure enough, they stopped and jumped out after me. I woke up before much more happened, but I remember thinking what a frying pan/fire scenario it became. What does this mean?"

There are quite a few themes worth exploring in this dream. First, it happens at night. Nighttime in dreams tends to represent things we cannot see clearly, or obstacles that obscure our path. Someone behaving threatening to you in the dream can represent a feeling of being emotionally attacked or bullied. Police have a variety of meanings in dreams. Here they arrive to help you (though wind up chasing the guy rather than arresting him), representing a symbol of authority that may or may not be capable of solving issues hindering you. Instead of waiting around to see, you run off--and running away in dreams indicates an issue you are hoping to avoid. Instead, you run into TWO attackers in a van. Vehicles in dreams represent directions we can head in our lives--and clearly that van was a direction you did NOT care to head. And this time you aren't just running, you're being chased. Being chased involves emotions or situations that disturb you, again that you'd rather avoid.

To put all these together, perhaps you've encountered a relationship or career situation where you felt emotionally or personally attacked, and attempts to correct the issue not only fell short of your hopes, but perhaps lead to some sort of retribution (or you may have fears of retribution). Your subconscious is acknowledging your tendency to try and avoid these scenarios, rather than risk a greater negative outcome.

Before chemo I used to have a very similar dream...night, threatening situation (usually aware of someone chasing me, but police didn't factor in. Very fascinating reading your interpretations!

You always seem to hit, as they say, the nail on the head with your interpretations.

Thanks...I do believe there is much dreams can tell us. We know a lot more about ourselves then we give us credit for!
