      Hmmm that happens to me, but for some reason, the person chasing me either disappears, never catches me or stops and soon I have no reason to run anymore.

      Argh, they never continue anything I expect them to in my dreams!

      Hi Tropical Horizon and Welcome.

      Sure I have some idea on what you are experiencing. Now if you all could back me up on this.. ladies and gents.

      I know that when you are sleeping your body shuts down for a brief period of time, this happens so you would not act out any of your dream responses during sleep. Sometimes in your dreams you still feel the connection with your body while its sleeping The inability to run is exactly what it is your legs during sleep becomes heavy and cumbersome due to this breif shut down period sometimes during sleep you cannot move your legs or other parts of your body, this may have some effect on your dreams because while you are dreaming you are still somewhat feeling your body (which happens sometimes). This experience is nothing to fear for it is normal everyone bodys shut down during sleep. I believe in any given time of your dream where you feel the need to run is usually because you're running away from something that causes fear within you, and whenever your feelings become aroused by excitement or frear sometimes it may spark things within allowing yourself to become active this is the early indication of feeling your body begining to wake from the dream. Noticed whenever you have a disturbing dream you wake up abrubtly and sit straight up in your bed like something just jolted electrical voltage within you. This is your body reacting once again. So this is what you are experiencing and its normal so don't fret.

      That used to happen to me too. Not sure what it means though. However, this is a good time to either 1. use that as a dreamsigh to reming yourself that you are dreaming and thus become lucid or 2. turn around and fight your attacker. If you ask an attacker wgat his name is, he will lose his powers. Attackers represent fears and anxiety, so when you ask them to uncover themselves they disintegrate. Try it.

      That is a very common and powerful dreamsign! Not only does it always sinify dreaming, but the extra shot of adrenaline to your system can trigger lucidity!

      typical, typical.

      this used to happen to me every night with the same reocurring dream...about a werewolf that used to run down the hill to my old house and i guess the dream would end before he got me
      but my feet always got stuck. scared the shit outta me sometimes.

      Call it 'womens intuition', but I think I'm on to something here.
