Dreams related to prosecution are among the most common. As with most ordinary dreams, they are often the result of anxiety in your everyday life.
Running is an instinctive response to physical threats in your surroundings. In these dreams you can be pursued by an attacker, animal or stranger, who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. In turn, you run, hide or attempt to mislead the pursuer. Your actions in your dream reflect your reactions to stress and how you deal with your fears in real life. Instead of controlling the situation you are trying to escape from it. Ask yourself what you pursue, and maybe you can find the source of your fears and care.
Dreaming of a pursuer may also reflect a part of yourself. Your own feelings of anger, jealousy, fear, and possibly love, can occur as a menacing figure. This shadowy figure may also symbolize rejected qualities of your personality, you can design these feelings on the unknown chaser. Next time you dream of being pursued, try to think what it is your trying to escape from?
If you're the one who pursues in the dream then this can detect energy and ambition to the next thing you want. Or maybe the dream suggests that you stay behind and have to catch all the others up.
Consider the distance between you and your pursuer. This shows how close to something you are. If you reached persecution, this implies that the problem will not go away. The problem will be around you until you are face to face with the encounter. However, if you are able to extend the distance between you and the pursuer, then the problem becomes smaller and smaller. You are able to successfully distance themselves from the problem. Indeed, the problem begins to go away.
A deeper analysis of dreams about prosecution is the fear that you are attacked. These dreams are more frequent in women than in men. They are caused by fear of violence and sexual harassment that are so prevalent in the media, which further increase these fears
