DREAM DICTIONARY - Alive :If you are desperate to stay alive in a dream or you are alive then this presupposes something bad has just happened. In practice such a dream will follow on from some major stress or problem. Perhaps you are realising now that the worst is over and that you have to assess how much damage has been done. You could be wondering if a troubled relationship can be saved. It could just be your minds way of saying -'I am glad that's over'.
Staying alive could also suggest that you really do not like someone. You think that they are a real problem and you want to stay away from them. Perhaps you are trying to avoid them.
