Dream Dictionary Meaning For Paralysis
Dreaming of being paralyzed (whether the dream was a nightmare or not) can mean that you have a feeling in your waking life that things are not under your control at all and you really don't know what to do.
Paralysis can also indicate that you are afraid to do or say something in day to day life. This will usually revolve around something that is important to you rather than something inconsequential. It might be that you have a decision to make and it's a scary one and you don't know what to do for the best.
Paralysis is a very primeval fear for most people and to have that reflected within a dream indicates how important something may be. The issue or issues it refers to usually go to the very heart of a person's being.
Dreaming of being paralyzed is not uncommon and it's a very good indicator of the helplessness that is sometimes felt during waking life. Think of it as a wake up call to get things back on an even keel.
Paralysis on rare occasions can be traced back to childhood trauma or sometimes to trauma experienced as an adult. Whichever is the case it might be that you need to consider therapy to help you overcome past issues. This is particularly true in the case of trauma related dreams if the dream is a recurring one. Your sub-conscious is telling you in no uncertain terms that you have unresolved issues.
