DREAM DICTIONARY - Grab : Grabbing in a dream is not a major symbol it just
generally helps build up the atmosphere of a dream. Grabbing
is associated with forthright action, determination and in a
more negative sense ways in which you are struggling. Think of situations where you feel pushed around and forced into doing things. Think of situations when you would grab - your dream probably links to a similar type of situation. Think also of the emotions that you feel when others grab.
If you are trying to grab something it may suggest that you have been particularly determined. If you were trying to prevent something then its likely that the dreamer captures the effort that you were putting in to make sure it does not happen.
