How often do you feel lost in a crowd?
Posted 9/18/14
In many dreams being in the crowd shows your response to socialising. The crowd may indicate social pressure or what you feel is the common direction or response – as when we say ‘follow the crowd’. Feeling crowded out, pushed out by competition or pressure from others. A crowd can also indicate public opinion, what you feel others are feeling about you or doing to you. You might also feel anonymous in a crowd, camouflaged or lost.

A crowd in a dream may mean it is an important dream. This is because it involves many aspects of your nature, many parts of yourself. This is especially so when the crowd is in an arena, a theatre or a public event.

Lost in a crowd: Feeling without personal direction; confusion on meeting many opinions; desire not to stand out, or swayed by general opinions.

Attacked by crowd: Fear of public opinion or response to you; feeling your own anger or irrational urges as threatening.

Talking to, leading, or part of crowd at a central event: An impulse or idea which unifies many parts of your nature – as the many aspects of our own being, such as visual impressions; sensuality; thoughts; musical sense; religious feelings; sexual drive; intuition; fear; ambition; hunger; our desire for acclaim; the sadist in us and so on, constitute a crowd.

How we relate to the crowd: Suggests our relationship with our own inner community and the external public. Being unable to tolerate parts of oneself leads to intolerance toward external people with those traits. See: Group under people.



Useful Questions and Hints:

Am I happily part of the crowd or am I ill at ease – and what do my feelings indicate?

What is my relationship with the crowd, and does that reflect in any way on the way I feel about socialising?

Am I a follower or leader in this dream?

I always tell my friends not to leave me when we're about to run into a crowd, if I were to lose a friend in a crowd i'd go into panic mode..there's no way I like crowds at all

God walking home from school sucks, everyone's crowded and it's annoying as hell. Unless of course you stay in school for like at least 10 mins after its finished. But like 50 people hang around the fish and chips shop after school and even teachers are there so even if you are 10 mins later it's still crowded and annoying. The stupid thing is that people literally run across the road when cars are going by. Oh yeah when we did a school walk there's like 700+ people in my school we had to go a year at a time so about 180 at a time. So the youngest would go then 10 mins later the next year would go and so on. There was just so many people me and my friends went to the front and went ahead just to not get devoured by the crowd. In the end me and my friends finished in about 40th place... not bad out of 700. Especially considering like the first 20 jogged it, this was like 8 miles, and we were in year 8 and the oldest there was year 10.

That's weird, never really thought about it. I don't think I ever felt that way either

Sometimes I guess, not often though as you can't feel lost in a crowd if you're alone. My dreams are always screwy though.

I hate crowds. I feel like a sheep in a heard. It freaks me out BAD! I always wait until everyone's left the movie theater before I get up, I live in a small town so I don't have to deal with crowds often. Someone once told me that I was energy sensitive and that I panic in groups of people because I am affected by everyone else's energy. I like that idea it makes me more comfortable with my weirdness.

Always, but I make my own path that leads me to the right crowd and I get along with them all
