Hello, oh gracious Observationists. I would like a dream analysis, if you can make sense of the crazy imaginings in my mind.
I was at home, in the kitchen/lounge room, with my Nan and Grandad. My boyfriend suddenly rushed into the room to show me the baby huntsman he'd found. Both my Nan and I have a fear of huntsmans yet I still went with him expecting a relatively small spider, small it was not. It was about the size of a football and utterly terrifying. The dream changed and I was in my room, but the spider was still there. I was trying to squash it with a shoe but it kept darting about the place. My room's upstairs so I quickly run out the door and tore down the stairs. The spider chased me down but stopped halfway as I rushed into the kitchen. I called my boyfriend to help me so he asked me to try and entice the spider down the stairs so he could squash it. I ran up the stairs a bit then the spider ran down at me. I'm not sure whether the dream finished there or not, but I can't remember anymore.

EDIT: Not sure if this is relevant or not, but I've been seeing/feeling spiders a few times in the past few days. Someone would be talking to me then all of a sudden the image of a spider would pop into my head, or the feeling a spider is crawling up my arm. Not sure if this is helpful, but I thought I'd put it just in case. :)

"I'm Being Chased!"
Chase dreams are one of several common dream themes, stemming from feelings of anxiety in your waking life. Flee and flight is an instinctive response to a physical threat in the environment. In such dreams, the scenario often features you being pursued by an attacker, an animal, a monster or an unknown figure, who wants to hurt or possibly kill you. Consequently, you run, you hide or you try to outwit your pursuer. Your actions in the dream parallel how you would respond to pressure and cope with fears, stress or various situations in your waking life. Instead of confronting the situation, your dream indicates that you have a tendency to run away and avoid the issue. Ask yourself who is chasing you, so that you can gain a better understanding and insight on the source of your fears and anxieties.
