Dreams of being chased like this are often recurring nightmares. This means that the sleeping individual wakes up before the awful dream had a chance to end and reveal its secrets.

Once they become brave and confront their attacker, the dream will generally cease.
If the situation is reversed and it is you who is doing the chasing, this simply means that you are going after your goals. In the dream, ask yourself, 'What am I chasing?' It could be a taxi cab, a bus or anything else for that matter. If you manage to catch it, this foretells luck in your financial and business oriented situation. In most cases however, the dreamer does not catch their target. This simply means that they feel as though they aren't good enough to attain it. They harbor feelings of ill confidence and despair. While they are typically rather intense, such dreams of pursuit are necessary for mental stability. When something is bugging you, your subconscious will tell you, whether you want to hear it or not, so try listening to it keenly always helps.
