Actions like hiding in a dream can be a physical representation of a personal situation. For example, hiding a body in a dream can symbolize hiding from guilt or hiding your involvement in something regretful. It can symbolize avoiding a painful truth, hiding negative feelings, or concealing your true thoughts. It can mean that you’re hiding something from yourself through denial or wishful thinking. See: Burying Hiding in a dream can symbolize hiding away from the world generally, or from a person or situation specifically. This is especially true of people who are private or secretive, but it also applies to anyone dealing with a stressful or difficult situation. Sometimes you just want to get away from it all or avoid someone. For example, you always find a reason to be away or busy when your in-laws visit. You are, in a sense, hiding, and dream about it as hiding in the basement when the doorbell rings. Hiding from a specific person can mean you avoid that person’s scrutiny, or conceal something from that person. For example, hiding from your mother can mean you know you’re doing, thinking, or considering something that goes against her wishes or teachings. Hiding from your supervisor can mean you’re trying to conceal poor work performance. Hiding from a significant other can reflect a situation where you feel ambiguous about the relationship but don’t want to raise suspicion, or you’re doing or considering something you don’t want that person to know about. Also consider that a surrogate character can represent a person in your life. The big bear stalking you in the woods can symbolize a parent. The serial killer can symbolize a bully or business rival. A dinosaur sniffing around can symbolize a nosy grandparent. Hiding from an overly enthusiastic suitor can symbolize avoiding the phone calls or messages from someone who shows interest in dating you. For an example, see: Dinosaur.

In order to go on with daily life you avoid thinking about what you’d rather be doing. Hiding can mean you don’t want to know something. It can mean you don’t know something about yourself. In a dream you hide in a closet, which is connected with hiding your sexuality. Hiding can mean saving something for later, like a squirrel burying nuts. Dreams can use the symbolism of hiding the same as figures of speech like “hide in plain sight” and “hide out.” Hiding or being invisible in a dream can symbolize the feeling of not being seen or heard. You feel like a ghost. Or something is overlooked. It’s in a blind spot. See also: Burying, Coffins, Clothing, Ghosts, Imposters, Masks, Panic
