Sean – I wonder whether it is what is mentioned in Sleep Paralysis - Many people experience feeling paralysed while they are partially awake but dreaming. This may be due to the fact that voluntary movements are inhibited during periods of the dream process. All brain signals to the voluntary muscles are stopped. Therefore, if we become slightly awake and attempt to move at that time we feel paralysed. This is not sensed as a problem if we are unconsciously involved in a dream. While dreaming another level of will takes control of the body, so any sounds or movements made are not from ones conscious will.

I often use dreams as a way to pose questions to myself.  For example, if I had your dream, I might ask myself if there is some area of my body or life that I feel dead or lifeless in.  Or too stiff, as in taking everything too seriously.  Maybe I need to feel more or have more fun.  We can also procrastinate or get stuck making a choice, so it might also refer to that.  I learn a lot by questioning myself.
