THE CHASE DREAM
Hi Dreamers, Here’s another common theme that I interpret all the time in dreams, that of being chased. I”ll now use the Dreamtime Method (The Multi-Dimensional thinking Approach) to easliy and accurately interpret this 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 foryou 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! Terri Ullstrup/The Dreamtime
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 know I have options and need to look at them. I also am going to purchase your dream interpretation book as your easy to understand dream interpretation peeked my interest not only in terms of your method, but in seeing what my future dreams may be guiding me to do. Thank you so much.
