Dream Meanings - Dreaming of Running Away

What does my dream mean?

This is my dream interpretation blog, where I describe a dream, interpret each aspect of the dream and then decipher a dream meaning. Here is my dream interpretation blog, where I explore dream meanings.

In today's dream, the dreamer dreams that she is with her mother in law and she is trying to escape from her. It is night time and she drives away, it is very dark and she cannot see where she is going, she knows that there are many deep potholes at the side of the road that she must avoid. She arrives at a small town, possibly in a foreign country that she had once visited, she walks past a bar and sees an old boyfriend who appears to be still waiting for her, she tries to pass by unnoticed.

Dream meaning - running away - if you dream about running away you are trying to avoid a situation in real life. You are possibly in denial about something, you may have a problem that you do not want to acknowledge.

Dream meaning - mother-in-law, these relationships can be good or bad and so the dreamer will need to see the context of the mother in law -a good relationship can mean emotional security but a bad relationship can show that you are in a relationship with people that you do not trust or feel that they do not have your best interests at heart. A mother in law in a dream shows that you are or were once in a serious relationship.

Dream meaning - driving in the dark - if you are driving in the dark, you are going through life with no particular plan, you cannot see your goals, you are just in motion.

Dream meaning - Potholes in the road - potholes in a dream are symbols of things that you should avoid, you may suffer injury or become stuck in a situation. Potholes symbolize problems with achieving your goals.

Dream meaning - being in a foreign country - this is a situation where you are out of your comfort zone. If the dream was positive, it is a sign that you will have new fun and adventures, if you were lost then you will find your new surroundings challenging.

Dream meaning - to see someone waiting for you in a bar - most likely this is a sign that there is someone waiting out there for you, perhaps to date you or to hang out in social situations.

The meaning of today's dream, our dreamer runs away from her mother in law, she is in an unhappy situation , possibly in a marriage. She gets into a car, in the dark with no idea of where she is going -this shows that she leaves the unhappy relationship with no forward planning. She realizes that what she is doing is risky, the road is dark and full of potholes, she finds herself somewhere new, unscathed. She survives the journey and goes back to somewhere that she was before. Perhaps this symbolizes being single, she has previously been single. The man waiting for her in the bar is a sign that she could start dating again but she wants to avoid this.

Dream Interpretations

I started interpreting dreams when I was a teenager. I always had very detailed dreams and would recount them to my friends. One of my boyfriends bought me a dream dictionary and I started to delve into interpretation. Unfortunately, I found that many dreams had elements that were contradictory and so I did not really get a detailed analysis of my dream.

I realised that different people have different relationships with dream symbols based on experience, their daily lives and culture. A person who keeps snakes will have a different interpretation of a snake dream to a person who has a fear of snakes.

Dreams may have symbols that are said to be good omens and then some that are bad omens, understanding the context of the omens will help you to interpret their true meaning for you.

My blog is a series of dreams and interpretations of the elements in each dream to help you to understand how best to interpret your dreams, I am also available to interpret a dream for you. Email me:, dream interpretations are free!

I organise the dreams by general subject area rather than alphabetically, if you have a question about a dream symbol please email me.

Tarot Readings!

I started reading tarot cards many years ago when I was in college, I was studying business but my real interest has always been in psychology, astrology, tarot and dreams. I waited a long time to pursue tarot reading professionally. I do not understand how tarot cards work or why they work. I do not believe that you need special powers to read the cards but experience and an understanding of the symbols on each card opens the doors to a successful interpretation.

It is a good idea to be in a quiet place to have a tarot reading, to be able to free your mind of distractions and concentrate on an issue that you would like some insight into. Tarot cards can give you insight into situations and things that are happening around the questioner.

I have been a tarot reader for more than 40 years and will be happy to do a reading for you, the cost is $30 for 30 minutes or $50 per hour.  In UK: £20 for 30 minutes or £35 for 60 minutes. I use PayPal for payment and Skype to complete the reading. Please email me to set this up with your preferred time see below.. Readings are for entertainment only!

 In US Time: I am available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 2pm, 3pm, 4pm or 5 pm Eastern Standard Time and Saturday 9 am, 10 am and 11 am EST. 

In UK time: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 7 pm, 8 pm and 9 pm. Saturday 2 pm, 3pm and 4 pm.
