Dreams of being hunted
What does it mean to dream of being hunted?
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 the ethics of human hunting. Additionally, in 1932 there was a film known as “the most dangerous game” which basically featured violence and the hunting of people. The reason why I mention these films is that these dreams of being hunted can come from cinematic and television influences. This is exactly Freud's theory.

The human being (during these times) had to encounter many types of defense and equip themselves in order to “hunt” for food. Luckily, humans are intelligent and logical. If you are encountering a heartless, calculating being in the dream this can often seem quite absurd. If you look deeper into the meaning it becomes apparent that there are obstacles in your way.
The most interesting theme in this dream is that our moral dictates that hunting is against our own society's rules. If you are hunting for prey in a dream then this is quite interesting as it represents that you are looking for something new, rather like a human looking for food. This eludes me to the conclusion that this dream is about objectives. Your objectives.
