Being stuck, or unable to move in a dream is a very symbolic experience, and these types of dreams often seem to come about at times in our lives when we wish a situation was different in some ways, but for some reason feel powerless and not sure how to move forward.
Perhaps you’re in a situation right now where you feel cornered, or you may have tried to change a living situation without success. These types of dreams could also indicate that there is fear in our lives.
As with all dreams, it is always important to be honest with ourselves, and accept where we may feel stuck in our daily lives. Perhaps you have been living in denial, and the dream is helping you reach more awareness and understanding.
Also ask yourself what you can do to reclaim your power? We can never be in full control of any situation in life, but we can live in alignment with our heart and soul, where we honor ourselves, including our own spiritual power.
If there is nothing you can think of to change a situation at this point in time, remember if is not the event itself that determines our experience of it, but rather how we perceive it. It is possible to develop a new attitude.
By enhancing our awareness about ourselves we are in a position to better understand ourselves, and this is how we ultimately develop more compassion for ourselves, and step into our own power.
There is a beautiful prayer called the Serenity prayer that so elegantly shows us the power of observing our life situations, and I think that is one of the most important steps we can take on the path of soul growth.
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”
