Dream meaning: Chased/Chasing

Chased chasing One of the most frequent types of recurrent nightmare or anxiety dream, being chased sometimes can be traced back to waking situations in which you felt caught or vulnerable, acted passively, or in which you gave in.


Some researches connect it to a stressful situation dating from childhood or adolescence, the memory of which is often repressed. Being chased by animals or demons can represent your own unexpressed or unacknowledged anger or aggression, which is being projected onto the chaser.


Being chased and caught, especially by a man, may be birth process memories. Consider it as a possible sexual pun for chaste being chaste, and not caught. If you are the chaser, what you are chasing may represent a goal, or a solution to a waking issue. With what ease or difficulty are you pursuing it?


See escape and fear.

    I had a dream,in a place I know,but this one female figure, long blonde hair and wearing a coat , starts appearing…so because I don’t know who she is I start avoiding her,and this goes on until I’m running and getting out of breath, and when I stop to rest that’s when she stabs me in the gut and leaves me to bleed,and watch her walk away…then I wake up…I have no idea what it means?

    Last night I had a dream that my husband (soon to be ex husband) was chasing me around our old apartment with a knife. I ran outside and there were two little girls sitting at a picnic table that were mine (which is odd because I don’t have any children) and he tried to take them away from me. He made them eat this cake that made them forget who I was and he took “my girl” I would like to know what this means if anyone has just a slight idea please share with me! I’m still scared. And I also might be pregnant with the new man in my life.

  • Haley, 17 // Nov 30, 2014 at 10:08 am

    I had a dream last night where me, my mom, my sister, and our friend Hannah..were staying overnight in this random creepy cabin. Us girls had a feeling it was haunted but my mom was skeptical. So me, my sister and Hannah all went to bed in the same bed, me and my sister on the outside and Hannah in the middle. And as were sleeping, i get woken up by Hannah grabbing my arm freaking out and pointing behind me.. then out of nowhere, this all hite clown (literally all white, not just its skin) comes out of nowhere, and starts running angrily at us in slow motion. We started screaming, but my dream changed up before the clown reached us. My mom came in the room and we were telling her what happened, and she was just making fun of us for “what we saw” she didnt believe it. Then all of the sudden, on the wall right behind my side of the bed, Hannah points to this stuff coming out of the wall (it looked like white paint) and as its oozing out of the wall in different places.. i just hear my mom say: “No…” as if she knew something that she didnt want to happen. The white in the wall was basically like a figure appearing. We all backed away from it, and i woke up before i saw the full figure.
    -I want to figure out the meaning behind this.

  • claudia // Oct 14, 2014 at 12:10 pm

    I’ve had this dream twice now. The second time I knew I dreamt this twice I knew what to do to save the one I love. Am a 22 years old woman but in my dream am a man who’s saving this woman whose face I’ve never seen. I knew how to stop her but this time I decided to take another course. Its a house/facility it was all In glass. They were chasing me so I left the woman and ran for my self. I was on the roof and went through a glass window to get into these red tubes. Men with guns were around me but it was confusing because all the glass I couldnt tell if it was a reflection or not. I finally get to the door two men with guns were there and was shot right in front of me. The man that shot the two men had the woman who I was trying to save. He tossed her in the back of his little yellow truck ( the doors were navy blue ) in the back of the truck I wanted to get in but a fat man was already there so I went to the back too. I started cry For some reason this woman I called Claudia her by my name. I said my full name to her and she responded. I thanked the man who saved us both then woke up.

  • Hanna // Sep 26, 2014 at 8:14 am

    Ok so, I had a nightmare that my mom was trying to kill us both by driving off a cliff.. What does this mean?

  • Azze // Sep 23, 2014 at 10:46 am

    Ive had this reoccurring dream but with different people and different places, that clowns are killing people at night. Just today I dreamt that, in the news they were warning the people of these serial killer clowns and so my remote family all went to my grandparents place. In the daytime this homeless tweaked out guy goes skipping by the alley where my grams lives depicting a clown killing someone. The homeless dude begins laughing and taking then making gagging sounds as if thats how the person being killed seemed. So we close all doors we all stay in the living room getting ready for bed when my 9yr old brother goes get something from outside I run out and start telling him to hurry up that was does he think he is doing when the homeless dude passes by making the same noises. This time I see a a clown in a bulldog suit walking towards the house. The homeless is killed and the clown putting him on the stairs prepping him like a Halloween prop. When I see that I told my dad scared but quietly to look as iexpect him to look through the blinds he opens the wood door leaving the metal door closed. I dont know if my dad says anything but I see the clown calling other clowns over. We frantically close the doors and start thinking what we could do. I take all the kids to the kitchen give them all a big knife and put them all in the restroom at the end of the hall. I give them an order to not hesitate if someone other than us opens the door. I go get 2 knifes my self and every adult does too. We’re so scared because we dont know what these clowns are going to do nor do we know what we’re going to do when they get in. The clowns are banging on the door trying to get in we all get startled and I just wake up very scared. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS since I’ve had this dream more than once. Once it was with my boyfriends family.

  • Isabel // Sep 14, 2014 at 8:02 pm

    So my dream began of me inside a market and I was beating up my ex boyfriend. In my dream he was inside the freezer fainted and I running away trying to get inside my car and as I reversed my car out he was running towards me. As I began to get out of the parking lot he was getting closer to me and afraid I was driving faster so he couldn’t catch up. As I drove off I lost him. And relief of calm came to my heart. It is not the first time I dream of my ex trying to catch me but I always get away which in my dream I’m so glad he couldn’t catch me.

  • Lexia // Aug 28, 2014 at 11:04 am

    I had several dreams when I was younger about a clown getting out of something and chasing me and a group of other kids that I didn’t recognize but now i’m older and found out that my ex used to have the same dream of the clown..

  • joo // Aug 3, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    I had a dream that I was running together with “friends” ( I don’t recognise them) from a dinosaur (sound sources) in a building. We heard it but had never seen the dinosaur until the end. We were formal dressed n hiding under the table covered by chair. At the end, a man who i dont recognise (I have no idea why a man instead of the dinosaur) came in, saw me n tried to catch me. I ran and suddenly I saw a light. I jumped to the light through a window. I woke up n felt shivering.

  • Hannah // Jul 13, 2014 at 1:25 pm

    I had a dream last night that I was with two girls and there was a guy trying to murder us, he murdered the two girls, but he couldn’t see me for some reason. I was trying to stay really quiet so he wouldn’t hear me, he almost caught me and killed me with a shovel but I got away. This time.

  • cris // Jul 7, 2014 at 10:18 am

    I had this dream that was reoccurring several times. I was running or we were running. I really can’t remember who I was running with or what I/We were running from but every time that was running something was like making me run slower or like there is a force that was making it hard for me to run. I really don’t know what that meant but it was haunting me ever since.

    I have this nightmare as long as I can remember where some man is trying to chase me and kill me I keep running but he is so close behind me but my dreams are always different like different men are trying to kill me. I don’t understand why they won’t go away or what they mean but this is the only kind of nightmare I get.

  • Ced // Jan 21, 2014 at 9:34 am

    I dreamt that i was biking home and i saw a woman shooting passerby’s whilst on her motorcycle at an intersection, so i whipped out a bb rifle and shot her in the back, and then ran as she tried shooting me. Her gun was very real, and so I jumped off the bike and dove into the woods, easily distancing her. I was terrified of dying, so i tried to avoid making noise and doubled back towards the intersection where I originally saw her. The downhill slope from the road into the forest offered me some cover, or so i thought, and I saw her up ahead, facing the road and loading her gun. I rushed her and brutally beat her down, yelling that one can’t shoot people the way she did, and she cried saying she just wanted to have fun. I grab her gun, hop onto my bike, and pedal home. All in all, it ended better than I expected.

    I have a recurring dream that my mother is trying to kill me. Her method is different in each dream and she doesn’t chase or violently attack me. For example, in one dream, I caught her trying to poison me. I wake up feeling very disturbed for quite a long time when I have these. They occur a couple times a month. Please help…

  • Bronwyn // Jun 4, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    I have a dream thats not really recurring, but certain elements reappear in other dreams, i even remember parts of my dreams whilst im still dreaming. It can start off as nothing then all of a sudden michael myers appears either at a door way or i see him in the distance watching me. Whenever i try to run it feels like slow motion, as if im stuck at 2mph going nowhere. When I do eventually escape he knows exactly where i am every time, i can hop into a car that i can somehow drive and i know he will follow me. So I end up in my childhood house, upstairs as always taking to my sisters, he doesnt want them just me. Even though I knew i was dreaming last night, I made myself stand there and let him ‘kill me’ I felt pain but i didnt ‘die’ in the dream, i carried on. I remember, whilst in the dream, that in every nightmare i escape by climbing out a bedroom window, really easily, then run off again only to be followed. I wake myself up before I die, knowing im only dreaming. How is it i know exactly what im ‘suppose’ to do when im in the dream world? Its the same in any nightmare, can be any person trying to hurt me aswell but still the same outcome: run, be chased, same house, same window, run and then nearly die.

  • Vincent // Apr 30, 2013 at 7:53 pm

    I have this recurring dream that every time I try to go home from an earlier dream (which varies) I always go through dark passageways where at first there are lights and then later on there are none and that is when a monster ( I picture it as smeagul from LOTR) always tries to chase me. Sometimes I’d be paired with another guy trying to runaway, sometimes a girl. And I figure there are rules to it too, when I’m with the guy there’s a 50-50 chance to escape, with the girl is 100% and when I’m alone I’ll get caught for sure. Can someone interpret this for me. It really creeps the hell out of me.

  • Curious Dreamer 868 // Nov 25, 2012 at 10:28 am

    this is long but I dreamt that I went to visit a friend at school he’s younger than me and he’s like a little brother to me.I went to carry lunch for him I thought that would be cool since My class finished early that day. In order to get through the gate at his school you had to kick this white statue they have at the gate in the crotch.So the gate opened and i walked in,I began searching for him since it was lunchtime as i was walking I met a group of girls my age and i stood talking to them it was then i realised that i knew one of them my best friend that used to go to the same school as me,it was weird cuz it seemed to me like she didnt like me she sneered at me but i talked to her and the other girls anyway she talked to me too,there was this one girl who got on my nerves it turns out i knew her too since her an my best friend used to be friends in real life i wondered what the hell she was doing there i felt kinda like she took my best friend away from me.So anyway i asked them to direct me to my brother he wasnt too far away i gave him his lunch and we stood talking.Next thing i know there are some guys running on the compound one talked to me like he knew me and apparently i knew him,telling everyone to evacuate the building and they were handing out some tablets,big round white tablets that you have to put on your tongue to help you breathe under water and masks and oxygen tanks.I looked at the school gate and there was a big rush of water coming toward us.we ran up the staircase into the building,then all of a sudden the scenery changed we werent in the school anymore,we were in this building looking like a long hallway but it was off the ground and there were doorways all down this hall with staircases going down to ground floor where there were red and white buses waiting(I know this place and its usually a busy place but no one was around but us) everyone was running trying to get out using the different doorways and aside from the water bad things i couldnt identify were chasing us.we still had the tanks and things with us and as i ran down one of the staircases people were pushing and shoving(at this point I didnt know where my brother went he disappeared and i ended up with the girl i didnt like and my best friend and two other people i didnt know)the stairs were like cages(there was wiring on either side)if you wanted to get out you had to swim.I realised everyone was trying to get back up the stairs so I sat on the railing and looked down there was a red striped lizard looking thing with horns and black hair(a little bigger than average human height) trying to hurt people.I looked through the caging to the other staircases and at the bottom of each one the same thing was playing out, there were people who got on the roofing of the stairs who were trying to get away but the monster caught some of them,the ones who did get away crawled though the windows and ran up the hall with other groups of people,I grabbed the girl that was with me even though I didnt really like her and we got up to the hall and ran, the water we were warned about earlier was rushing dwn the hallway like a big swirl taking and crushing everything in its path a lot of people got caught in it.I was scared i could feel my body tensing up and my heart beating hard in my chest,it felt too real.we kept running,there was a group of teachers trying to ward of the ‘things’ and help kids and adults get to safer places in groups.I tried to help this one group with people my age and some high schoolers because they kept lagging behind.the girl and i distracted the monster so the other kids could get away,this particular one being bigger than the others it looked like their leader or something.so the kids got away to find some other groups down an abandoned staircase(the only seemingly safe one).the girl and i ran to the end of the hallway and climbed out the window onto the ledge,it kept following us I felt like it was mainly coming after me trying to hurt me.it flew midway to the ground like it was waiting for me to fall off the ledge.its arms were long so we had to keep switching ledges,we jumped down on this ledge(one story from the ground) and the monster talked!it said let me see what you would do about this and i noticed to the end of its arms were blades,it dragged the blades halfway across the wall on top of the ledge we were standing on we had to jump i didnt even think about it i just knew we had to i grabbed the girl’s hand and jumped.we free fell onto a white block i thought that was it,i was a goner.but by some miracle we landed softly,we ran to where the groups that made it assembled in this caged room i dont know what happened to the rest of monsters but the head,the one we were running from was still around.i talked to one of the adults and he asked if i had a shovel i wondered what it was for,he said they were goin to build a trench around the area so they couldnt get to us(by then i was breathing heavily and freaking out)i couldnt cry even though i was feeling it as i was asleep my body in the dream refused to feel scared,my face refused to register fear.we got the groups in the room and i went with the adults to help dig the trench(it didnt make any sense to me really,there was still a lot of water everywhere)it looked a lot like rain fell too. we got on a bus and miraculously found shovels,i started digging.i watched over and i saw one of the monsters found the room the groups were hiding in and was trying to get in. I remember climbing on top of the roof to get to it and distract it so it wouldnt hurt my friends and met it face to face.everyone was screaming and somehow I couldnt scream, i was terrified(i almost lost control of my bladder) it was so close to me and getting closer,i could see its face clearly it looked like a human gone bad and it was very angry I kept telling my body to wake up before anything else happened and i forcefully woke up

  • MORAG MONTGOMERY // Nov 19, 2012 at 2:03 pm

  • Stephanie // Oct 8, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    I had a dream that I was in an abandoned house with my cousin and some man was chasing us. Then he let her go but told me to stay – if not, he was going to kill me. I still ran out & he started chasing me. I was running down my block I kept looking back to see if he was close to me & when I looked back he dropped to the floor & started running like a dog.

  • Ashley // Oct 5, 2012 at 9:54 am

    I had this recurring dream that I was being chased by this girl…her hair was in her face so I didn’t know who it was. So I kept running until there was this baby I caught in my arms and gave it to this woman. Then the girl disappeared and the face of a girl I have never seen before showed up…Then I woke up…The dream only gets scarier every time I have it

  • Lute // Oct 4, 2012 at 5:19 am

    I had a dream that my husband and I were sleeping, and I woke up out of my sleep asking him about a little pig. He said it was in the refrigerator, and I told him we could have just put the baby pig in the dog cage that was next to the side of our bed. Then I walked to the window cause I heard clanging noises of coins. I saw the front part of a blue car, and it looked like there was an accident that had occurred. I then looked over to the lower right side of the window and saw an old man in the bushes. It looked to me like he was looking for coins. I was frightened, so I moved away from the window. Just then the guy went up to the window, as my husband had his back against the window. The old man says hi to me in a weird, creepy manner. Then he lowers himself and takes a knife and starts to carve the back of his head. I started screaming Baby watch out…..over and over until he woke me!. It scared me so much, it really felt real. What does this dream mean.

  • Tkd // May 13, 2012 at 3:40 am

    My dream was long and jumped around but all fit together (in the dream anyways).

    I was in a foreign place. I was with a bunch of people I knew, but not in real life. We partied and I got so drunk that I forgot most of the night in the morning. I checked my wallet-empy! All my cards and money were gone. I wanted to look in the mirror, but my bathroom lights didn’t turn on. So I went across the hall to some other hotel room and there were no lights in that one either. Some woman walked in and knew me but I had no idea who she was (it was safe but weird). I hung out there for a little while and left, in search of someone I knew. Oh ya, my cell phone was broken into 4 pieces and would turn on if I squeezed it all together, but all my data was gone.
    Anyways, I ended up at this beach house in the basement with a bunch of stairs that lead to nowhere..like a maze. I finally found my way out.
    Then I was on the beach and had to climb up the exterior of some deck to get up to the road.
    I somehow ended up in some old smelly car. I kind of knew where I was going, but made a wrong turn. I was driving up to the underside of an overpass and passed a group of sketchy-looking homeless guys. As soon as I passed them the car spun out and wouldn’t move. They all ran to the car, a couple of them dove into the windows. One guy outside the car was yelling “use the knife! Use the knife!”. The guys who dove in were trying to stab me. I managed to grab the one guys knife and somehow get out of the car… And then the CHASE was on!
    They were all chasing me and trying to stab me. I grabbed a few knives away from them while running. A couple guys stabbed my shirt, but I don’t think they cut me. One guy was very fast and had a long shinny and very sharp looking blade/sword…I was thinking to myself that he was the one who was going to catch me. I was thinking that I was so done. And then I woke up.

    Any insight you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you

  • Kelley // Mar 7, 2012 at 8:29 am

    Just this morning I had a dream that a man, he was older was biting the neck of another woman and he said that I was next and I ran away, but woke up very scared. About 2 hours later I had another dream it was like it was the continuation of the other dream, only the guy let me out of the front door where I ran away and this older lady with no shoes on started chasing me and we were running fast like 40 mph, that is how fast she told me were running. I got away and the next thing I knew I was eating in a restaraunt with my husband and I told him we had to leave so we did, and I walked out to his truck and the door was unlocked and I woke up. Strange…

  • Kent // Jan 23, 2012 at 1:52 am

    I dreamt that I was being chased by Jason Voorhees. I was at a house in the forest, it was daytime, and I saw him through the window. He chased me around, I don’t know for how long. It came to a point when I turned a corner and he was waiting for me, then I woke up.

  • Nicole // Oct 3, 2011 at 4:24 am

    I dreamed that Michael Myers was chasing me through a house w/ a knife and I had to act like I was jumping off the roof, but didn’t and as he ran downstairs to catch me on the ground, I never jumped and ran out the house, jumped like 5 fences and got away! I’ve had different dreams about mike myers since I was a kid.

  • angelica // Sep 25, 2011 at 10:16 am

    I dreamed that I was alone in my house and then I saw Michael Myers standing at the door and he chased after me. Then it changed – now I was being chased by Leather Face. Then I ran off the edge of a cliff.

  • axel // Sep 16, 2011 at 2:58 am

    I dream that I’m running, sometimes away from people and sometimes towards people. Though quite a few times I’m just running but it feels amazing. I feel different emotions in each dream, whether its fear, anger, happiness, and this raging need to hunt. In all these dreams though, I’ll be running, but it’s never fast enough and then I drop to all fours and I just go fast. Then I wake up and during that day, whenever I’m walking around I’ll get this impulse to drop and start running like a dog, an impulse so strong I have to fight to stay on my two feet.

  • Chandler // Sep 15, 2011 at 7:12 am

    I always have the same dream. It’s always someone I know chasing me and trying to kill me. Sometimes it’s my friends, but mostly it is my family members. So far, I’ve had my Mom, Dad, and sister all chasing me and trying to kill me. But I have only been killed in my dream once. I have been beaten up and yelled at. I always run into different houses or rooms and hide, but they always seem to find me. It’s scary to dream about your own mother trying to kill you…actually, its just pretty messed up.

  • Londa // Aug 29, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    My dream is always chasing a male friend. In the dream he doesn’t see me. He is living his life, and I’m chasing him, or I’m trying to get his attention through a glass wall.

  • Sbee // Jul 12, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    I had a dream that I was the chaser. I was in a shop and I knew my boyfriend was around but I hadn’t seen him in a while. Then I looked outside and he was talking to this girl who had a school uniform on that he used to go out with. And he was with another girl and she kept pulling him away. So then he and this girl walked away. I got angry watching this so I went after him, but they got away. So I just ran around getting glimpses of them and trying to chase them…

  • Mahesh // Jun 25, 2011 at 1:28 am

    I’ve had a recurring dream since I was 9 where I am being chased by an unseen person/thing and as I run I realise I’m running up towards the edge of a cliff. When I reach the edge I think that whatever is chasing me has gone, so I turn to look out over the sea and that’s when I am pushed over the edge. I fall and see the rocks and waves rushing to meet me. I wake up sometimes before I hit and other times as I hit. Being 30 now this dream has scared me for 1/3 of my life.

    I had a dream I was running with my ex to catch a train… or bus… or something and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t cacth up to her. She was always just out of my reach. All I could see was the back of her head as she ran away from me. Is this as obvious as it seems or does it have another meaning??

    Whenever you dream that you are in danger speak the dream to a toilet and then flush it.

    When you dream that you are being chased by someone and you escape then you have won victory over your situation.

    When you dream that you are being chased by a dog, that means that the person whom you are dating is being lured by someone who has found them attractive.

    I had a dream that my teacher was my mom. My classmate who I have crush on is my boyfriend, and he said, “Let’s steal your mom’s car and make love.” We did that and than we were caught and my mom chased me with an ax.

  • nathanaelle // Feb 5, 2011 at 11:40 am

    I had a dream: a mad woman was chasing me. I was running from her, and she never catches me. She was yelling after me, “I’m gonna catch you”, etc.

  • Bryan // Feb 4, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    In my dream I’m running from lots of men in uniform. I dunno from what agency – just know they all have guns and bullet proof vests. I hop in a car and start driving away. I then realize there is a girl with me from my high school who is very beautiful…and that’s all I remember. I rarely talk to this girl – just comment on her facebook every once in a while. and I haven’t been in high school for 5 years.

    I dreamed of being chased by a dog. The dog is barking at some people but he only chased me. So I ran and climbed onto a building. I thought he won’t reach me but the dog came near me, and he’s reaching for my feet. And a guy (whom I never met) came and saved me. He carried me on his back and we walked then later on I saw dogs walking behind us but they didn’t bark nor were they mad.

    Then the next day, I dreamed of being chased by a woman or a thief I guess, and I ran and hid but she found me. Then I remember I was running and a guy chased me. I avoided him & I don’t know the reason why. Then he went up to me & I was walking with him. He made this impressions to me. And I think he’s cute and nice that’s why I befriended him. But he has a girlfriend. Whenever I’m with him I feel as if I cheated on my boyfriend.

    When I woke up I felt guilty because I would never cheat on my boyfriend and I was thinking about that dream guy’s girlfriend’s feelings…

  • amber // Dec 11, 2010 at 6:54 am

    I had a dream where I can’t see the chaser but I know it’s my ex boyfriend. He is angryu and wants to kills us (my ma and I are running from him). We run into a house, shut the door. Then a huge fat guy busts the door down–knocking the door into my ma. Her neck is cut half way open (on the left side). She is laying on the ground bleeding-then I woke up shaking.

    My ex boyfriend is emotionally abusive and is trying to get back with me so I thought maybe it has something to do with that. My ma was abused by men until I was 7, so I figured that is why she appears to be running for her life along with me.

    What do u think it all means?

  • matt // Nov 30, 2010 at 3:21 am

    I have these dreams where I I try to run from something or someone but can simply not propel myself forward and find myself running like a dog with my hands or something to try and put more force on the ground to try and move faster. As soon as I am about to be caught its like another dream starts.

  • Lillian // Aug 27, 2010 at 7:02 am

    I am running and a clown is chasing me, but no matter how hard and fast i try to run, i dont seem to be moving fast enough and the clown seems to always find me or be right behind me. However the clown never catches me, its just a constant chase.

  • dreamer23 // Jun 16, 2010 at 9:23 am

    Emily, daniela, Dana your dreams have very similer meanings, what they’re saying is whoever these ‘friends’ are they’re no good for you, whether it happens sooner or later they’re gonna hurt you or screw you over.
    Any dream where your friends (or people close to you such as family/boyfriends etc) are involved and it’s a negative dream e.g. they’re chasing you, not backing you up, shows that something bad or significant is going to happen involving those people in your dream.

    Take your dreams as a warning about their characters/actions/people around them. Slowly distance yourself from their company to avoid getting hurt : ]

  • Emmanuel // Apr 18, 2010 at 12:11 am

    1. In my dream I was holding the horns of a big brown animal like cow but am not sure.
    2. I saw my self being chased around by a little girl but very fast, I later escape.
    3. I found myself on the street with dogs and goats but I was scared. Two dogs try to face me and I throw sand at them.
    4. Finally I saw group of age 15/16, a boy and a girl, more fair in complexion./p>

  • Quintin // Apr 5, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    I have had dreams that I am being chased by demons for the past 2 weeks. In my dream I am running away from the demons and they don’t normally catch me fast – it’s like they like watching me run scared in my dream, but they get really close to me. Then I wake up before they catch me.

  • Katie // Oct 13, 2009 at 6:09 am

    I dreamt that i was walking with my niece, who is 1 (she was in a stroller) and a car hit me in the leg as i was walking across the street. The car took off, but I yelled after it. I bumped into a friend and told her what happened, she was very upset. We continued walking and suddenly the car that hit me drove up beside the sidewalk and started to follow us. everytime i tried to cross a side street it tried to run me over. I ran back onto the sidewalk and hopped a fence, leaving my niece in her stroller behind. I ran to a school and tried to hide. I spoke to a teacher that I knew and then decided that it would be safe to go back to my niece. I was crossing through the cafeteria and there were the two guys that were driving the car. I got down on the floor and crawled to the doors. I heard them behind me, they had seen me. I ran out into the street and said that it was going to be okay, it is after all just a dream and everything has to end happily ever after. I then woke up.

  • Teresa // Sep 29, 2009 at 5:17 pm

    i have this dream, where I see some one running because they’re being chased, and they end up jumping off a cliff into an ocean, but as they do this, they turned into a skeleton. And the night before, I had a dream of an evil clown about to kill these two lesbian women who were hiding in a cabinet, saying “at least we have each other.” And then all of the sudden, the clown pokes a metal rod right through one of the women. scaryyy stuff.

  • Rachel // Aug 22, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    I always have dreams where I’m being chased by either a man or an animal and I’m trying to run really fast but am only going at the pace of a slow walk.
    These dreams get really frustrating and I always wake up scared out of my mind.
    It’s a sort of feeling of hopelessness…like being stuck in a situation that I can’t get out of

  • jordan // Aug 8, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    I dream that I am being chased through a forest on a dirt road. Then I get to like a farm, but there are no animals or house but there is a barn. I run in to the barn as big doors at either end are open and there are about 20 old American cars and trucks there and I crawl under a old black car. It doesn’t take long for the chasers to catch up because when I look from under the car they are standing about 3 cars away from mine. There are 4 of them – all male – and they are dressed in dark clothes, talking about finding me. I never remember dreams but I can remember every little detail of this one and have for a long time. In the dream I am so fearful for my life, but I think one of them is trying to help me but in not sure. Its really scary!!!

  • Anjyl // May 24, 2009 at 5:37 am

    I was being chased by an 11 year old child with a new weapon every few minutes. I was falling down a lot, and also couldn’t get the phone to dial the right number. People tried to help but the little girl kept getting past them because they didn’t believe that a little girl would do that. I have no idea what a little girl means in my dream.

  • Naira // Apr 12, 2009 at 2:08 pm

    I used to dream that I’m sitting in a white room playing with some balls of different colours. While I’m playing they were growing and growing and eventually get so big that they begin to chase, push and scare me. I don’t know what that means. And I can’t wake up at that moment

  • anamika // Dec 2, 2008 at 9:20 am

    Well, in the dream I started running from my house’s top floor & after running through the whole city I ended up in my house’s down floor & I have no idea who the person chasing me was.

  • Emily // Nov 19, 2008 at 9:05 pm

    I had this dream that, in the beginning was perfectly pleasant. I was hanging out with friends and having a good time. I was also hanging out with someone that I secretly have a crush on. Then, everyone started getting really freaked out. They were saying things like “they will be here soon, we’d better go” and “this is where they like to hang out at night” I don’t know who “they” were but from the way everyone was talking, I decided that I didn’t want to be there either. So, we all tried ti hide in a place that looked strangely like my apartment building but we didn’t hide quick enough. I tried to lock the door but this big strange man that I had never seen before was chasing me. I went in to the bedroom to hide because I couldn’t run and as he was about to grab me, I woke up.

  • Aimee // Nov 18, 2008 at 10:15 pm

    I had a recurring dream where i was chasing a man. I still don’t know who the man is. I eventually catch up with him at the top of a building but he turns slightly holds his hand out and jumps off. I didn’t have a boyfriend when it started but then i got one. Strangely, it stopped when i broke up with my boyfriend.

  • Daniella // Sep 14, 2008 at 9:17 am

    I was with my 13 and 11 year old cousins. I was holding their hands and these 2 men (brothers) who apparently I used to date, chase me and my cousins. I try to get in my car but my car doors are not locking once I’m in. I finally go and the men are holding my car back from behind by the bumper and I’m putting my foot on the gas as hard as I can! and just staying in one place on the street burning rubber. Finally I get away and start driving and the men find me on bikes. I swerve and hit them and they just don’t die. Then I’m running with my cousins and they still chase me. and then a red car comes and then I woke up. Pretty scary! I felt like I was going to die!!! I called my auntie right after to make sure my little cousins were OK…

  • daniela // Sep 11, 2008 at 4:59 pm

    I had a dream that I was being chased by a bunch of good friends and they were trying to snatch me, never did get caught cause I got away but then I woke up and fell back asleep to the same dream and this time i was running on top of water in a pool, any ideas

  • Dana // Sep 11, 2008 at 8:33 am

    I had a dream where my friends were chasing me and trying to kill me. I kept hiding and tried to call 911 to help me, but they didn’t pick up.

  • Nitz // Jul 24, 2008 at 9:23 am

    I dream that I being chased by everyone, I hide out in the house of a friend I no longer talk with, and stay there until the national guard and army are called in to capture me. Its really weird, I know, but I have this dream a lot. Any ideas what it means?

  • jeff // Jul 16, 2008 at 6:27 am

    I used to dream I was in the back seat of a car – then looking out the back window I could see a massive, perfectly round rock ball chasing me. It must have been 60 to 70 foot tall. Scary stuff.

  • amanda // Jul 9, 2008 at 11:50 am

    I am being chased but can not run quick enough so start jumping/bounding away which seems quicker…
