Have you dreamed of running and want to know what that means? If so, you are in the right place. We are going to try to summarize one of the main doubts related to dreams: running. It is probably a feeling that we have all had at some time and whatever the nature of the dream, we have felt the need to run but we have not been able to do it normally. If you want to know why this happens, do not stop reading.

Before continuing, we would also like to clarify that despite being a very controversial and requested topic, it is true that the interpretations that are made about these dreams are like the rest, that is, variable. It depends on each person, their experiences, their memories and their life, so it is very difficult to offer an accurate psychoanalysis without knowing anything about the person on the other side of the screen.

Another aspect to take into account is the importance of each element that appears in the dream. It is not the same to dream of a dinosaur that chases you and therefore you run away than to dream that you are running without more. Only when running is the focus of attention can the dream be interpreted following the guidelines that we indicate in this article.

We do not want to deceive anyone and that is why we focus on providing you with the tools and that it is you yourself who ends up discovering the meaning of the dream in your life. Do not forget also that it is not always necessary to find an explanation for everything we dream of, as this is a clear example of a dream susceptible to being affected by the environment. You may have had to run to get to work on time, to catch the bus or you have seen some athletes running, everything can make it appear in your dream, which means that they have no valid interpretation in your life.

Meaning of dreaming about running

  • One of the general meanings of running in dreams is the one that defends the need or desire of the dreamer to achieve their dreams in real life. If, for example, you often dream of running, it is very likely that you are a person who is looking for a way to achieve the goals that you have in mind for some time. This is one of those neutral dreams in which the meaning can vary from the most negative to the most positive. It is not good to be obsessed with the objectives but neither to give up and lose hope.
  • To dream that you are always late to places and feel bad about it is a sign to wake up. It is very possible that you are a relaxed person who lets things flow without hardly moving. This must change if you really want to move forward in your life and achieve things on your own merit. Don’t let laziness or fear of failure hold you back, because you learn from mistakes and become stronger.
  • Feeling a strong desire to run in dreams and getting into it reflects the need to escape from what surrounds you. There is something in your life that you would like to change and you don’t really know how. The truth is that you know that it is your environment that affects you in this way but you cannot find a way out. The best thing you can do is start to face reality, try to improve your situation from now on, even if you have to have tense or uncomfortable conversations to do so.
  • When, on the other hand, you cannot run even if you try with all your might, it is because there is something that literally slows you down in your life. You know what it’s about and you can’t change it, which burdens you even more. The mentality and positive mood is in these cases essential to stay balanced and know how to make the right decisions. This dream is usually more related to those who explain paralysis in dreams, another very common phenomenon.
  • If in dreams you are running with the sole purpose of surpassing the rest, it is because you feel the need to improve yourself, move forward and achieve more than you have. In this case we are talking about ambitious people who also like to be the center of attention and receive a pat on the back every time they do something. This is a dream that should be used as a reason for reflection on the personality, because in the long run nothing good brings this type of character.
  • Finally, we talk about one of the dreams that has created the most controversy among psychoanalysts. We talk about dreams in which when running reduces gravity and it seems that we levitate with each stride we take and even speed is reduced. This lack of gravity is a feeling that can be pleasant or distressing if what we really want is to leave in a hurry from where we are. These dreams do not have a precise meaning yet, as many relate it to the traditional desire to progress and others say that it is a reflection of the lack of means to do so.

Conclusion of dreaming about running

Running is a healthy sports activity that is being practiced more and more, although in dreams the meanings are quite different. We hope your performance is just as flattering on the body and more importantly, on the mind. Tell us your dreams related to running and do not hesitate to ask what you want.
