Move Movements

In general the quality of your movements in dreams depicts your feeling or mental state, your confidence or lack of it, your ability to make changes – move easily – or difficulty in facing change – paralysed. The quality or lack of it that you express in your life; what you are creating or ‘giving off’ in everyday life. But movement is always an expression of who you are, of your potential to achieve, to make changes, to ‘get somewhere’. So look to your feelings in the dream to define what it is of yourself that is being expressed, what of your potential is flowing or being denied.

If it is an object moving, it suggests the thing has direction, life, or purpose of some kind. In this case you need to understand what your relationship with it is in the dream. It might also refer to it attracting your attention.

Agility: Coping well with your situation; adaptability; mental quickness.

Easy flowing movement: Self acceptance and thus easy expression of oneself; feeling in harmony with emotions and sexuality.

Getting stuck, unable to move: Often being held back by anxiety or fears, such as fear of failure. See Life’s Little Secrets

Do I have any sense what my movement or posture expresses?

Am I aware of my body much or what I am saying through it?

Do I love moving or is it a chore?

I am a 56 year old woman and the past year I have been moving in my sleep sometimes my arms are tired. I try to turn and pick up things or grap for things and get upset when I can not touch them theis wakes me up. Also my partner gets hit by me picking things up, moving, or trying to grab. This is very anoying. why does my body move insetead of rest?

    Bernie – Usually all the movements we make in our dreams are active in our brain but then are blocked by a part of our brain so we can stay asleep. Also the fact that you cannot get hold of thing suggest another thing, that you are semi awake while dreaming, and this may be because there are feelings you need to release. While we sleep our voluntary muscles are paralysed which causes the frustration you feel – you dream it but your body does not respond.

    If you read it may explain more fully. But also try using the as this may be of help to release any tensions that are trying to express through your dreams.
