There may be areas of your waking life in which you feel insecure or unsure of yourself. You may be aware of some of these areas but in other cases you may be repressing your anxiety. Repressing any emotion is damaging and to grow stronger emotionally you should try to recognize and understand it. Dreams can help you with this process. Dreams in which you missed a bus or plane or miss an appointment may be reflecting your fear of being late. They may also be suggesting feelings of uncertainty in your waking life.
If someone makes you late, that person may be part of the reason for your insecurity.
If you are angry with yourself in your dream, you may be angry with yourself about missing opportunities in waking life.
Any dream in which your safety is threatened by natural disasters, such as floods, storms or earthquakes, may be a sign of feelings of insecurity in waking life. Scan your dream for any clues as to who or what is dragging you down, killing you or giving you reason to hope. Is there a lighthouse, lifeboat or coastguard in sight? Dreams in which you are abroad and unable to understand the language or culture are classic symbols of uncertainty about new situations in your waking life, as are dreams in which you are constantly outbid in an auction. Try to identify what you were bidding for as it might help you understand what is worrying or bothering you. Dreams in which you consult a therapist, psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor or fortune teller are telling you that you are not feeling as in control of a particular situation in your waking life as you feel you ought to. You may also feel unsure about who to turn to for advice.... The Element Encyclopedia
The essence behind the meaning of the security camera is the discretion with which it captures things that occur; its presence is usually hidden, discreet, or ignored. In this way, security cameras often capture events that people don’t intend to make a permanent record of. In a dream, they connect with a sense of being watched and potentially judged for choices you are making. They loosely relate to a sense of conscience. What would you do or not do if you thought you were being watched? Such a dream may indicate a violation of privacy in some area of your life.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

Dreams can seem incredibly real when you are having them; as if you really are interacting with your environment and the people within it.
Although your five senses of taste, smell, touch, hearing and seeing are not conscious when you are dreaming, you may find yourself waking with lingering memories of sensual interaction that seemed so real at the time of dreaming. For example, you may recall seeing a beautiful sunset in your dream or hearing a conversation. Or perhaps you remember the smell of burning wood, the touch of a lover’s hand or the taste of a fine wine. You may wake up with a feeling of relief or regret that the terrible or exciting events in your dream simply weren’t real; and a part of you may need convincing that the events in the dream did not actually take place.
According to Jung, dreams are important messages from your unconscious to your conscious mind and nowhere is this more true than when the clarity, vividness and realism of your dreams are so incredible that you have no idea you are dreaming. Although some people are aware of when they are dreaming, many of us aren’t; if you regularly find your dreams both convincing and compelling, many dream analysts believe that your dreaming mind is creating an atmosphere of intense realism to shock you into action or a change of perspective.
