This is one of the most commonly reported dreams across all cultures. Mostly because the anxiety we feel in the dream is so vivid, that it makes it easier for us to remember them. Often, the reason for these dreams comes not from the fear of actually being chased, but rather what we’re running from. Being chased frequently means you're feeling threatened by something in your waking life. Chase dreams help us to understand that we may not be addressing something in our waking lives that requires our attention.
