BEING CHASED

Something in your life is creating a fear-based response to a threat. That threat may be real or imagined. When a person feels exposed at a very primal level, the built-in survival mechanism of the fight-or-flight response occurs. You may be running in terror without knowing that the secret enemy you are running from is yourself.

If you do not know your assailant, it may simply be you trying to catch up to you with something important that, if embraced, would allow you to feel more complete.

If you know who is chasing you, the person may have more to offer you if you let him or her catch you. Even if being caught ends in being killed, that death could be a symbolic transformation of such significance as to be the very thing needed to bring your greatest heart’s desires into reality. That is, of course, if you have the courage to stop running and turn around. Sometimes it is part of human nature to be afraid of success, and a dream of being chased is alerting you to stop running from your own magnificence.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

BEING CHASED

The way we respond to anxiety and pressure in real life is typically manifested as a chase dream. Often in these dream scenarios, you are being pursued by some attacker who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. You may be running away, hiding, or trying to outwit your pursuer. Chase dreams may represent your way of coping with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life.

Instead of confronting the situation, you are running away and avoiding it. Ask yourself, who is the one chasing you, and you may gain some understanding and insight on the source of your fears. The dream could also indicate that you are refusing to acknowledge a certain viewpoint or idea. On the other hand, the pursuer or attacker who is chasing you in your dream may represent a part of yourself. Your own feelings of anger, jealousy, fear, and possibly love, can assume the appearance of a threatening figure. You may be projecting these feelings onto the unknown chaser and your dream is calling your attention to your own self-destructive actions. A more direct analysis of chase dreams is that they reflect the simple fear of being attacked. Media hype and overexposure play on this fear and magnify our level of risk....

BEING CHASED OR HUNTED DOWN

The most common type of nightmare or bad dream is the one in which you are being chased or hunted down by something or someone. According to Jung, being chased or stalked as prey is a primal memory of your human collective unconscious and may refer to early times in the history of humankind when it was common to be chased, often to the death, by an animal.

If you are being chased in your dream it is important to think about who or what was chasing you, and then ask yourself whether there is anyone or anything in your life that reminds you of your pursuer.... The Element Encyclopedia

CHASE / CHASED / CHASING

(1) If you are being chased in a dream, what is chasing you probably symbolizes something you are afraid of, either in your external life or - more commonly - in your inner self, your unconscious. For example, a woman who dreams of being chased by men is probably afraid of sex. (Freud would add that her dreams present, in disguise, an unconscious, repressed desire for sex.)

(2) If you are doing the chasing, the ‘you’ in your dream is probably your conscious ego and the thing you are chasing is almost certainly some part of yourself that frightens you. Chasing it away means disowning it, banishing it from your conscious life. It might be much better to try to integrate it into your conscious life. At the very least, get to know it and understand it.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

CHASED

Example: Three men with clubs were chasing me, but never actually caught me as I woke in terror. I was deter­mined to tell myself it was only a dream, and the next night as they were chasing me I remembered it was only a dream and lost all fear—stopped running—turned to face them and said This is only a dream, you can’t hurt me.” As they came closer they faded into nothing and I never saw them again’ (Account of dreams when six years old. Mr C).

The example shows how we can be pursued by fears or emotions, and can either continue to avoid them or face them. We are, in a real sense, pursued by what we have created with our thoughts, emotions, action and inaction. What we are avoiding might be sexual feelings; responsibility; expressing what we really feel in public; our fear of death; sense of failure; guilt; emo­tional pain; grief, etc. We can never escape from ourself, so such feelings may pursue us through life unless we meet them.

Chased by opposite sex: afraid of love or sex, haunted by a past relationship. By animal: one’s passions; anger, natural feelings. By Thing or shadowy creature: usually past experi­ence or trauma, a hurt from childhood. Chasing: something you are pursuing in life; something or someone you want; aggression. See follow. ...

CHASED / ATTACKED

The origin of dreams of being chased or attacked probably dates back to an era when humans fought off beasts or other tribal members to survive. The ‘monsters’ of today are more likely to be emotional beasts, such as fear, anxiety, anger, hatred and envy, or the pressures put upon us by the fast pace of life. In these dream scenarios you are often being pursued by some attacker who wants to hurt or possibly kill you.

CHURCH

For a Christian person, seeing a church in a dream signifies a house of worship, religion, knowledge, devotion, work, ascetic detachment, fear of wrongdoing, penance, lamentation and it could mean crying.

A church in a dream also could mean distress, trouble, slander, innovation, injustice, a business club, a meeting house, bingo, wine, alcoholic consumption, communion, weddings or a wife. In a dream, a church also can represent its parish, diocese, ministry, clergyman or a chaplain.

If one sees a church turned into a synagogue, or a synagogue turned into a church in a dream, it means mistrust, an argument, or a scheme for tax evasion. Seeing oneself in a synagogue in a dream means that one may become a Jew.

If one’s house turns into a church in a dream, it means that he will bring its business to his house, or it may mean a fight with one’s boss. Seeing a church in a dream also denotes a cemetery, confession, a prostitute, a music house or a place of confinement. Ifa woman sees herself attending a wedding or a funeral service at a church in a dream, it may mean the same in wakefulness.

CHURCH

Symbol: The church may represent many things: “a woman clothed in the sun,” the “bride of Christ,” “Noah’s ark,” “the ship,” “the vineyard,” “the net,” “the City of Heaven,” and more.

Vision: Walking into a church: do you have to make amends to someone? Watching a church cave in: you have lost your faith in God. Looking at a church: you will be kept from “going down die wrong padi” or doing die wrong tiling. Praying in Church: you will receive help from above, or a very important wish will be realized. See Chapel, God.

Depth Psychology: Dreaming about a church can be a sign that you are already emotionally mature or that maturity is still missing. It often indicates strong faith and, sometimes, your connection to others.

CHURCH

What applies to a church may apply equally to a temple or a circle of stones or any other sacred place.

(1) A church may symbolize the self, the totally integrated psyche, with all its elements organized as a harmonious whole centred on whatever, in terms of your individual personality and ‘destiny5.

constitutes the supreme value of truth. (For self)

The image may therefore be taken as a sign that your unconscious is urging you to ‘centre” yourself, to put an end to the fragmentation which results in your going off in opposite directions; to ‘pull yourself together” in the almost literal sense of unifying all the currently conflicting parts of you into a creative and fulfilling collaboration or commingling.

Other buildings - a house, or just a room - may represent your psyche. The fact that your dream presents the psyche in the image of a church means that you are being invited to perceive the self as something sacred - that is, something of supreme value and perhaps in some way transcendent.

(2) The church may symbolize, not the total psyche, but some most valuable (‘sacred”) part of it which holds the meaning of your life - the key to your true destiny.

(3) In primitive times a sacred place was regarded as the birthplace of the tribe’s original - divine - ancestor(s). In the same way, your dream image of a sacred place may be a reminder that you are not a worthless creature living a meaningless life; that vour self is a divine reality’, something of supreme value and to be taken with the utmost seriousness; that you are not only to love yourself but also to revere yourself.

(4) The church - or what is going on inside it, or how you in the dream are reacting - may represent your feelings about religion or about some institutionalized form of religion.

(5) For church crypt see Cave, Cellar.

(6) Is there someone in the church - a priest or (other) holy person, or someone you love dearly and respect deeply (father or elder brother, for instance)? If so, the figure may represent the self, the part of you that transcends the ego (for self). See also Wise Old Man / Woman.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

CHURCH

Churches put us in contact with our inner harmony, since as it is known, they are places of seclusion and meditation. To dream that you find yourself in an empty, solitary church suggest a need for solitude and introspection.

If the church is large and full of people, the dream encourages you to trust more in others, in what society offers you.

The dream is very positive if the protagonist becomes aware of his potential and decides to seek new projects to change his future. The purpose of the architecture of sacred buildings is to symbolize the unity of the soul with God. In psychological terms, these buildings represent the human mind at its peak. (See ABBEY)

CHURCH

You are dreaming of connecting to your spiritual nature in a more conventional way. Churches, temples, and mosques are the center of spiritual life for any community. Just like a house in a dream, any building can be interpreted as representing one’s current sense of self. In this way, any place of worship ultimately points to your relationship with spirituality and religion. Because this element of life can be particularly controversial, it is very important that you make a clear distinction between the universal meaning of church as connecting to matters of spirituality and whatever personal feelings you harbor about organized religion....

CHURCH / GRAVEYARD

A church or religious building in your dreams represents your feelings about religion; if you are not religious, it marks all that is sacred to you in your life. To see the outside of a church in your dream signifies sacredness and spiritual nourishment. It is representative of your value system and the things you hold sacred. To see the inside of a church indicates that you may experience some minor setbacks. However, whatever seems like a nuisance might eventually turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

Dreaming of a grave or graveyard is an indication that you must resolve or deal with your feelings concerning the inevitability of death. It may be that you are trying to deal with feelings concerning someone who has died. Alternatively, part of your personality may have been killed off or is buried—or cut off—from the outside world. To dream that you are in a graveyard signifies sadness, unresolved grief or ambivalent feelings about death. It can also represent those parts of yourself that you have killed off or have stopped using. From a spiritual perspective, a graveyard is not only a place of death but also a place of spiritual regeneration and rebirth. To see a mausoleum in your dream signifies possible health issues or anxiety about your health.... The Element Encyclopedia

2- A church building may or may not be considered to be beautiful, but its image links with our appreciation of beautiful objects which mark and enhance our sense of worship. We link with the forces of life within us which enable us to live life more fully.

Example: ‘It was like an English church with several great spires.

The whole building seemed to be built in a white and gold design.

The gold pans shim­mered in the sun. I gazed at this wonderful sight for some time and felt such a wonderful feeling of upliftment, my tired­ness gone’ (Johan E). As in the example, the powerfully re­generative side of our inner life or feelings; the world of expe­rience we have created inwardly by our thoughts, meditation, actions; our sense of contact with life itself. Also the moral rules we make decisions from (such rules may not be ‘Chris­tian’ if they kill much of our inner life); moral authority, our relationship with the community. Occasionally baptism, mar­riage, death, the mother or refuge.

Walking past church: not entering into contact with the best in us—or our anger towards dogma. Example: The priest was going to question and assault my friend in connection with some opinion he had offended the church with. I went to stand near him to give him moral suppon, and physical help if necessary. I hated seeing anybody degraded.

The priest saw my move and sent three thug type men to shoulder me out. They surrounded me to knock me down. I went beserk and knocked them all over the place with kicks and punches’ (John P). In the example John sees the dogmas of the Church as an assault and degradation of human qualities of love and moral suppon. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

CHURCH 

Dreaming about being in a church is more common than most people realize. Each week I get several requests to add church to the dictionary. This may be so due to the fact that most of us went to church as children. From a very early age we had to go to church and were taught that there was a God. This was important in our life and to our families. Dreaming about churches, cathedrals, synagogues, or any other place of worship may represent our childhood associations with religion. At times, the dream may be a muddled childhood memory.

The church could represent a need for greater spirituality in the dreamer’s life. It may express religious beliefs, everyday occurrences, issues of safety, security and strength through community and religious expression. None of us can escape the age-old questions, “Who am I?” and, “What is the meaning of life?”. Coping with our own physical mortality is a very big deal. Both our conscious, and unconscious minds are continually working and bringing issues of relevance and concern into our awareness. Think about the details of your dream and make an attempt to honestly understand its meaning.... The Bedside Dream Dictionary

WATCHED, ATTACKED OR CHASED BY AN ANIMAL

Hiding from or being trapped by animals can suggest you are feeling controlled or threatened by your urges or the emotions or feelings of others.

If the animal is watching you, your unconscious is reminding you not to forget or neglect the instincts that it represents.

If the animal is attacking you, this could indicate that you are in the grip of a rage that you fear you may unleash. Your dream is urging you express or deal with your anger in a controlled way.

If an animal is chasing you in a dream, this may suggest that in real life you are in flight from some area of your personality that wants to be expressed.

If you are trying to find refuge from animals—either by building a defense or running away—this indicates a struggle with instincts that threaten your safety in waking life. In some cases dreams of being threatened or attacked by animals may be telling you that you are repressing your instincts—perhaps being too civilized— and you should try and loosen up more. Being bitten by an animal could indicate aggression from someone close to you or that our own aggressive instincts are not under control. Any threat from a sinister animal suggests fears and doubts you may have about your ability to manage your emotions. See also SURREALISM AND FANTASY.

Animal noises

If you hear animals making sounds in your dream, you need to consider what these sounds mean to you in waking life and then to make a symbolic link. For example, if you hear an animal barking, wailing or whining for attention, these sounds could be calling your attention to the qualities that that particular animal represents to you.

If you hear ominous growling, roaring or cackling, it could reflect pent-up anger either within yourself or another person.

If you hear braying, it could indicate a need to overcome basic animal instincts.

If you hear bleating, you may be taking on new cares and responsibilities that could be positive or negative depending on your attitude towards them. See also SENSES.... The Element Encyclopedia
