Dreams About Being Hunted

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Being hunted in a dream is considered an obstacle dream.

People hunting other people is shocking and also worrying during a dream. In 1924 a novelist called Richard Connell published a story aimed at this very concept. Since this publication we have seen many films such as “the hunger games” and this has in turn bought about ethics of human hunting. Additionally, in 1932 there was a film known as “the most dangerous game” which basically featured violence and hunting of people. The reason why I mention these films is that the dream of being hunted can come from cinematic and television influences. This is exactly the Freud theory. In ancient dream lore this dream can mean that you will encounter success but after some obstacles.
