Watching in dreams can link to situations which you are thinking about and analysing. Maybe you have been coming to a new conclusion? Thinking about something in a new way? Some situations are quite fluid and you are starting to build up a more accurate picture of what is happening. It may take you some time to realise that there is a problem? Maybe you are noticing that things have changed? Maybe you are just taking a long hard look at the situation? Think about things like this and then try to see how well they fitted something from yesterday.

Watching could be associated with situations which are causing you concern. Maybe you are looking for signs of further trouble developing? You are worried about the consequences of getting involved in trouble? You may just be observing tension building up? You are aware of problems and cautious? You maybe worried that you have misinterpreted signs of trouble? Perhaps you are thinking that something bad could have been misinterpreted? Maybe you are trying to avoid trouble - or trying to avoid the blame.

Watching the pain and suffering of others may link to your own wish to help others. Maybe you have just started to realise the problems someone is going through? Maybe you have been deeply touched and emotionally involved in someone's plight? Perhaps linked to this might be your imaginations - perhaps you worry too much? Maybe you are thinking the worst in the problems of others?
