The Meaning of a Maze Running Dream, According to a Dream Analyst

The Meaning of a Maze Running Dream, According to a Dream Analyst
Written by publishing team

I wonder what this crazy dream you dreamed of could mean? Don’t Let It Keep You Up At Night – Our Inner Dream Analyst Layne Dalfen, author of I wish you a great dream The books, are here to help you make sense of it all. In a twice-monthly column on the Oprah’s Daily, Lynn draws on her decades of experience to explore what a dream reader is trying to tell him.

I dreamed that one morning, I woke up in my New York City apartment to find that the outside wall of the building had fallen completely, exposing the outside world and the crowded streets below. As I looked from the edge of my sixth-floor apartment, I realized that it wasn’t a typical morning, but the morning of the New York City Marathon—a race that was recorded for the coming fall.

I immediately panicked, knowing I had missed the start of the race. But as I stood watching, holding onto the edge of the building (and my running shoes), I realized that the runners were racing through a hamster-like maze rather than the regular track. The streets were stacked on top of each other, rising into the sky one by one, connected like a ring that carried them from top to bottom, over and over. They ran in each level, climbing crazily on top of each other, to continue in the ending that was not there before. Suddenly, I felt like I wasn’t too sad about missing something.

Dear maze runner,

Your dream is full of surprises! He was surprised to see that the outer wall of the building had fallen completely. You were shocked when you realized it was the morning of the New York City Marathon, and even worse, you missed the start. And then you discover that the racetrack is a “hamster-like maze”.

Amid all the surprises, I’m drawn to how you go from the panic and sadness of losing the start of a race (where you first say you really want to be), to deciding you’re not sad after all, knowing there’s no end to this race.

If this is my dream, this is where I’d start. Your labyrinth reminds me of how I feel sometimes after I finish cleaning my house; Under the surface, I know this job will present itself over and over again. It is a task that does not get done and does not continue, or as you say, continues “to the end that was not there before.”

Is there a job or situation in your life recently where you feel that no matter how high you go, there is no finish line? I chose “job” first in my question, because as you described it, “they were running fast at every level, climbing on top of each other like crazy.” This brings to mind the corporate ladder.

For some people, work can have an endless adjective; Once they reach the goal, they are already looking at the next step. Are you the style of a person who focuses more on what’s in front of you rather than taking a breath of appreciation for where you’ve arrived?

This is another point. In your dream, you have already scored in the race. I planned it. To help connect to the recent waking event that led to this dream, ask yourself if your job, or some other recent situation, presents a scenario you had initially planned for, but then felt like you had missed the beginning in some way.

Moreover, this dream sounds like it could describe a situation that starts out intensely – after all, it’s the New York City Marathon – but later, you lose motivation and realize you don’t want to do it.

Alternately, this might be a conversation you’re having with yourself about a particular relationship? We all know how a relationship can start with a blast. Once the honeymoon phase is over and a few months have passed, the truth with your partner begins to emerge. Could you be wondering if you want to continue the course, figuratively speaking?

To expand this thought, could it be that you “missed the start” of the marathon because you didn’t take the time to look at the person you started yet? If this resonates with you, you may have started to feel that your partner’s traits are the kind that will never change, and that you don’t like the idea that this “race” may never end.

Often, a dream offers a solution there in the plot.

Now, let’s look at the surprise of waking up to find that the outside wall of your building has fallen completely, exposing the outside world. Do you feel that there is some truth or truth about the “outside world” that has been revealed to you recently?

I like how this realization happens to you after you start the race, but before that You are join. Even though you’re anxious at first, you’ll soon realize that it’s not a situation you want to be a part of! Perhaps this dream is an early call to attention to any waking state that the subconscious is “discussing”.

Often, a dream offers a solution there in the plot. Here, the missing ending – literally. This is your subconscious mind that encourages you to fill in the blanks! You can look at your feelings to find the best result.

If this is job related, a good question might be, “Is this where I want to be?” If your current dilemma is related to a relationship, the question could be, “Is this the person I want to be with for the long term?”

Answering any of these questions will get you straight to the finish line.
