    I’ve had this same dream multiple times an would like someone’s perspective on it. I keep dreaming that I’m in the car with 2 people an then all of a sudden i hear some one saying they’ve called the cops. and I always fear they are coming for me! Now I’ve had trouble with the law in the past and I always feel fearful around police. So what’s.really going on with me having this dream regularly?

    I dreamed that me and my boyfriend were passing the police station because my friend called me and said that she was in jail because of credit card fraud. When we were inside the police station I was afraid because I saw my name in their list, saying that I also have a police case because of my credit card. So, my boyfriend and I ran away and we were hiding. Then the police caught us and I was put in jail. So, what does this dream mean?

    In my dream I saw my girlfriend in jail along with her sister. I tried to break her out and almost got shot before waking up.

    I dreamt as i was in prison, however i had lot more freedom than the others in the prison. Talking to people/police in good manner, they respected me. I see a lot of people suffering/tortured but not me.
