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 pulling in dreams?

Pulling may show that you recognise the need to take radical action in some way. E.g.

"I cannot seem to get close to my friend any more. He has changed totally. I cannot talk to him about real issues as all he wants to talk about is politics and human rights" [Dream Dictionary - pulled the gun off him back and clicked it and aimed]

"I realise that I am stuck in a routine and have become frozen inside. I need to change and seek out new experiences and new people." [Dream Dictionary - wolf pulls me out]

"I think that this dream was a premonition of the day of the dream. I was scared for my Grans safety as the weather was very bad where she lives. I did not think she would cope. But actually she was safely tucked up and did not even hear the storms because she is deaf." [Dream Dictionary - I grabbed her hand and pulled her toward us]

"I had to attend a funeral yesterday. But I realised that virtually all of the congregation had been in prison or done drugs. They have got to realise the importance of religion and save themselves. Otherwise they will be swept away. I know I am not without sin but I have sought the forgiveness of the Lord". [Dream Dictionary - start scrambling up pulling my son with me]

"I have been thinking about my old friend from Australia. She is in the UK. I would really like to see her. I know its probably not likely to happen but I really really wish it could happen." [Dream Dictionary - he tries to pull up the car]

Pulling suggests tough circumstances and hardships that you are trying to overcome. E.g.

"I am having to make a decision about starting my own business. I will have to give up my job in order to get the business started. I know its going to be an uphill struggle" [Dream Dictionary - He refused, saying he would pull my hands apart and break the ropes ]

"I have been having problems with a work project. If things get worse then I think I will leave the job"[Dream Dictionary - Two men were trying to pull me up but it failed at last]

"I recently had a car crash. I lost my boyfriend due to that and also a lot of money" [Dream Dictionary - pulled out my upper teeth]

Pulling may suggest that you have realised the hardships that others have had to face. E.g.

"I am just beginning to realise how bad Hurricane Katrina was. I watched the victims on TV but when I saw them I realised that it could quite easily been me. This did not happen in some far away country. These people were Americans just like me. Its scary". [Dream Dictionary - managed to pull my self to the ground ]

"My Mom is stuck in her present situation. Her mental health has always been bad but now she is also virtually bed bound. I fear she could die at any moment".[Dream symbol - pulling its huge body around with these little legs]

Pulling suggests that people are not open to any influences and have their own definite views on things. E.g.

"I feel left out by my husband. I cannot get him to talk. There is obviously something wrong. If we cannot talk through problems then I cannot see the point of us being married. That's the whole purpose of marriage to be able to share problems." [Dream Dictionary - Suddenly the jeweller and his father pull our a gun and point it at us]

Pulling can suggest that you have been putting lots of effort into something. E.g.

"I left a religious cult a few months ago. I have been thinking over my times since then. I have started to do normal things such as enjoy Christmas and go to MacDonalds (all which were banned when I was a member of the cult)" [Dream symbol - co-worker pulled me close and kissed me]

"I visited a friend yesterday. She has been having some bad luck. I think she is overwhelmed by it all" [Dream Dictionary - I pulled her out and tried to resuscitate her]

Pulling can suggest that you are trying to form your own opinions and motivate yourself for decisive action. E.g.

"I am unsure of my own feelings right now. I am unsure of my job and my relationship. I am wondering what my feelings are." [Dream Dictionary - I pulled it free from the ropes and released him]

"I feel so powerless. I am waiting for my exam results and cannot do anything until they arrive." [Dream Dictionary - I pulled my mother out and saved her]

Pulling can suggest that someone has been forming some conclusions on something. E.g.

"I told my husband at marriage counselling that I felt that the good days during the previous week had been false. He took it in a bad way. He misinterpreted what I felt. Its pointless trying to bury issues. I think he was hurt because he felt that we had been doing so well." [Dream Dictionary - pulls out a picture of his children]

Pulling can suggest that you are coming to some conclusions about what is happening in your life. E.g.

"I really have got to sit down and think about what is important to me. I want to move to Houston to be with my daughter and grandchild. Yet I know now that I really will miss all my friends here in Dallas." [Dream dictionary - I pulled some cash out of my pocket ]

"Well I think I have totally misinterpreted this woman at work. I thought she was being critical of me but she actually agrees with everything I was saying. Its just the endless questions that I was facing from her" [Dream symbol - I am pulling things out of it including a woman who is sexually attracted to me]

"Yesterday was a real scare for me. I forgot my medications and had to get some emergency replacements from my doctor. It was not just the immediate scare as the incident brought to life my very real fears about my deteriorating health. So far I am coping but in the future I fear my health will change my life in ways I cannot even imagine"[Dream Dictionary - we were pulled to some unknown destination]

"I wanted to be nice to people at work. But it was so hard as its hard trying to be nice because I have got a cold at the moment. I cannot make anyone feel good with a stuffed up nose." [Dream Dictionary - pulled out my wallet and counted my money]

"I was thinking about my friend and how he helps me out. He told me he could not help me yesterday because he was a little exhausted. I think I understand." [Dream Dictionary - I pulled a mug out of the draw]

Pulling may suggest that you have been thinking about some hasty or radical actions that you have recently taken. E.g.

"Maybe I should not have broken up with my boyfriend. There seemed to be good reasons at the time but I have a feeling I have made a mistake"[Dream dictionary - I tried pulling him out, and ended up snapping his neck]

"I have just left a job that I really enjoyed. I will miss work" [Dream dictionary - I am pulling at a tooth]

Pulling suggests that you are trying to draw attention to something in particular. E.g.

"I hate being late. It drives me mad when my girlfriend keeps trying on new outfits five minutes before we have to leave. But my Fiancé has different ideas. I guess I just have to put up with it." [Dream Dictionary - he was pulled aside by the Colonel ]

"I know my father made a serious error which has disrupted me. But I am trying to calm myself down and take a more relaxed attitude towards this as he was after all sending me my Christmas present." [Dream Dictionary - I reached down and pulled out some cold ones ]
