Interpreting & Understanding the “Chase Dream” Using the Dreamtime Method

Being Chased in a Dream

Hi Dreamers,
Here’s another common dream theme that people experience in their dreams all of the time. It is that of being chased or what I call the “Chase Dream”.

Dear Dreamtime,
In my dream, a man is chasing me with a knife and I can’t run very fast. As
he starts to reach me, I wake up. What does this dream mean?

Dear Dreamer,
In this dream, your DreamSelf Within is communicating that within your current
thinking and thoughts creating your now . . . you dream that a man is chasing you with a knife.

Within each of us are two types of energy, male and female. Your “male energy” is
that part of you within that is your ability to act in life and to take action. Your male energy as a dream symbol is always represented by the image/figure of a man or men in your dream. Your “female energy” is that other half of you within which is your intuition, the doorway to your talents, abilities, and creativity. Your female energy as a dream symbol is always represented by the image/figure of a female or females in your dream.

In this dream, a man is chasing you. The man chasing you as a dream symbol
communication from your DreamSelf is saying that there is some action going on within yourself and life (symbolized by the man) that is causing you to feel pursued, hunted, or chased in your everyday living situation.

The man chasing you has a knife. The everyday definition of a knife is a utensil/tool that allows one “to cut” something. Adding this definition/understanding of a knife to the action of the man chasing you is communicating from your DreamSelf that right now, there is some action going on in your daily living (the man) where you are being pursued (chased)
to make you aware that you need to cut something (the knife) from you and your life.

In the dream, you go on to say that as the man is chasing you, you don’t seem to be able to run very fast. The inability to run very fast to get away from the man with the knife is saying that on some level, you know that taking some action (the man) and cutting out what needs to be eliminated from your life (the knife), that this is really the right thing for you to do. But for some reason in your everyday living situation you are hesitant to do this (you not being able to get away) as there is some fear regarding taking action. The reason that you wake up from the dream as soon as the man starts to reach you is because you
intuitively know this is going to be hard to do in your everyday living situation and you don’t believe you have the courage to take the action needed.

To get a deeper understanding of what this dream is saying, I would look at what
it is in your everyday living situation that is making you feel uneasy (afraid) of moving forward to rid yourself of something that you really do not need in your life. If you can pinpoint that, I feel you will have the answer to what this important dream is addressing.

Your dreams not only tell you what’s going on in your life, but as your own “multi-dimensional energy” from within attract into your next day and days after dreaming your dream similar three-dimensional (physical energy) to provide the solution for whatever your dream is addressing. It is in this way that your dreams create your everyday, three-dimensional reality.

Understanding the above, I would look in your next day(s) after dreaming this dream for the awareness of why you are afraid of making a change and then for the action (energy) to assist yourself to eliminate whatever it is that you don’t need that is depleting and harming you and your life energy.

Please e-mail me back when you get this and let me know if there is anything that
you did not understand of how I used the Dreamtime Method to interpret your dream.
Thank you again for submitting your dream for interpretation and good dreaming!

Here’s the Dreamer’s response to the above Chase dream interpretation:
Dear Terri,
Thank you for your insightful dream interpretation. I am in an abusive
relationship that I know needs to go. I’ve been dragging my feet about making
the break (cut) and the dream interpretation that you did spelled this out to
me. I’ve been running away from doing this because I know it’s going to be very messy and difficult and this interpretation confirmed this to me. I do have options and need to look at them now. Thank you again so much for confirming this to me that this is the right thing for me to do.

As you can see from how I interpreted the above dream, learning to interpert your dreams using the easy to understand and do Dreamtime Method created a “conscious awareness” within this dreamer of a problem that was ruining his or her life. Just “knowing” what their dream was communicating to them (by me interpreting it) made this dreamer more aware that they needed to make a change in a relationship that is abusive and is currently creating real disharmony for them with a less than happy life.

Remember, the important awareness and knowing this dreamer received from me after interpreting their dream coupled with the “actual energy” of the dream, will enable she or he in their day(s) after dreaming their dream to take definitive action to create change that they need for their everyday life.

Your dreams contain actual energy that is so superior to anything that you may be doing for your life now, that just knowing what they mean “alters” your thinking about yourself and that in turn, changes your life. And this change in thinking and action can create such profound change you’ll consider it “miraculous” because it does resolve whatever is hindering or keeping you from having the best life you desire. Such is the power of your dreams!

Dreamers, create “knowing” in your own life now by learning to interpret your dreams. That’s all you have to do to initiate the change you need for an improved living situation or whatever it is that you now desire for your life. Who doesn’t need a change in their life?
