i do my best to understand.


dream.
i'm running down a huge farming property with ten little kids, and two mothers. we are in a war and if we get caught we will be killed. i am in charge to getting the kids and mothers to safety and i tell them what to do and how to escape. we hide behind huge rocks and under the water of pools that light up and sparkle blue. i keep screaming at the kids to run faster, because as hard as i try it's like running in slow motion and we never seem to get far. we hold each other and run together, urging each other to move faster and comforting the kids when they get tired. every time we think we are safe, a small robot comes and takes our picture, alerting our captors of our exact position. & even though i know that we will be killed in the end--and no matter how hard or fast we run--we keep running and running.

dream analysis:
Running:
One of the most frequent types of recurrent nightmare or anxiety dream, being chased sometimes can be traced back to waking situations in which you felt caught or vulnerable, acted passively, or in which you gave in. Flee and flight is an instinctive response to a physical threat in the environment. In such dreams, the scenario often features you being pursued by an attacker, an animal, a monster or an unknown figure, who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. Consequently, you run, you hide or you try to outwit your pursuer. Your actions in the dream parallel how you would respond to pressure and cope with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life. Instead of confronting the situation, your dream indicates that you have a tendency to run away and avoid the issue. If you have difficulty running it can mean helplessness, being held back by negative feelings, feeling rundown or out of steam. Running away can be related to avoidance; issues of responsibility; guilt; new strength to avoid what is negative for you.
War:
To dream of a war, signifies disorder and chaos in your waking life You are experiencing some internal conflict or emotional struggle which is tearing you up inside. If you have unresolved issues and cannot find balance between the different parts of your psyche, the war dream will be quite prevalent.
