Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM DICTIONARY : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

HIDE : Hiding in a simple sense may suggest that you feel lacking in confidence or that there are overwhelming forces up against you in some way. But hiding may also link to the truth. You may feel that you have not accepted the truth or that you are deceiving yourself.

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Is there some problem which you cannot seem to escape right now?
- Are you failing to realise the seriousness of some situation? Are you in denial?
- Have people been trying to conceal the truth about something?

KEY WORDS : Protect, denial, acceptance, truth, reminded, true potential, pressure, concealing(write down some quotes that capture your key feelings on issues that have been dominating your mind. Then see if any of these words could appear in those quotes)

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "I have just not accepted the truth - the relationship is over"
- "people say I am in denial but I am willing to fight on"
- "I think I just need to realise the seriousness of the situation"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of hiding in dreams?

Hiding may suggest that you are hiding from some truth or reality. That you must realise the reality of the situation. E.g.

"I broke up with my guy a few months ago and we have recently had sex. I think I have not accepted that it is over and he is using me" [Dream symbol - hide dead body]

"I am trying to keep a relationship going even though its now long distance. In some ways I am hiding from the truth and reality yet actually things are going quite well. We talk over the Internet daily" [Dream Dictionary - trying to hide from the grim reaper]

"I have had a bad time recently and almost committed suicide. I feel the need to be protected" [Dream Dictionary - two children ask me to help them hide]

Hiding may suggest that there are some scarey or dominating forces. E.g.

"a child molested is coming into the restaurant where I work and I have been made to serve him." [Dream Dictionary - I am trying to help some little girls hide from a rapist]

"I hate my boyfriends family and really do not want to be near them at all. My boyfriend says I exaggerate things though and make them sound like mad killers" [Dream Dictionary - hide from my boyfriends frenzied murdering family]

"These builders just keep taking advantage of me. I do not like them. I try to stand up to them but I think they can sense my weaknesses" [Dream symbol - trying to hide in a tall building]

"I feel so alone and cannot seem to make friends. I simply cannot stand the pressure. I just want to be alone" [Dream symbol - trying to hide at top of a tall building]

"I had a dominant and abusive mother but I have cut her out of my life. I still feel her presence though" [Dream Dictionary - mother sends me emails saying I cannot hide from her]

"I hate my next door neighbour. He is loud and aggressive and has loud parties all the time in the garden. I want to say something but I know they will be aggressive with me" [Dream Dictionary - hiding in waterfall]

"I am getting disillusioned with my friend. She does not seem to be taking my side or supporting me in my recent difficulties" [Dream Dictionary - using my friend to shield behind as I throw knives at people]

"My neighbours are out again. I am trying to avoid them. They constantly harass me" [Dream Dictionary - Peter hide is with me]

Hiding may simply show that you(or others) are trying to conceal something. E.g.

"I have got a new boyfriend and my parents do not like him even though they have never met him" [Dream Dictionary - trying to hide my boyfriend from my parents]

"I realise that I have got to behave better at work or I will get fired." [Dream Dictionary - hide from my boss]

"My grandmother is coming to stay because she is not well and I do not like her. I will try to be nice to her but I will definitely stick up to her" [Dream Dictionary - hiding ]

"This girl I used to date has been trying to sabotage any attempts to go out with another girl. I cannot prove it but I know they talk to each other " [Dream Dictionary - dark figure trying to hide from me]

"I was thinking a lot yesterday about how people lie on their CV#146;s and it really annoys me. I am unemployed and many people put down fake qualifications" [Dream Dictionary - people steal money and hide it inside mailboxes]

Hiding may suggest a lack of confidence. E.g.

"I have been trying to find about about a man I like. I keep asking questions about him and finding out about him. I do not tend to think I am good enough for him though" [Dream Dictionary - trying to hide in mans house ]

"I tend to get depressed about this guy I like. I have got to start being more honest with my feelings and stand tall" [Dream Dictionary - running and hiding]

Hiding may suggest that you have let yourself down in some way and that you have not lived up to your own high standards. E.g.

"I set myself some goals about being less lazy yet I woke up and went back to sleep. I just let myself down" [Dream Dictionary - trying to hide form police]

Hiding may suggest that you feel the pressure has been put on you. E.g.

"I am encouraging my boyfriend to quit smoking but he is making me quit too. I cannot seem to manage" [Dream Dictionary - hiding]

Hiding may suggest that you are in denial about something. E.g.

"I am trying to deny the truth. I am in denial and deceiving myself" [Dream Dictionary - hiding body of my sister who I have just poisoned]

"I know I need to start getting on better with my ex boyfriend. I know its over and I have got to accept his friendship" [Dream Dictionary - hiding from naked girl in my ex boyfriends bedroom]
