To dream of filing may represent feelings about wanting to take action with a problem. Feeling that something is dangerous and want to do something about it.
To dream of having problems properly filing may be a sign that you feel unable to initiate positive change. You may also feel stupid for having originally thought something was dangerous when it isn’t. Anxiety about what other people think that stops you from speaking up about a problem. Reluctance to speak out.
Example: A person dreamed of wanting to file , but when they called they couldn’t speak. In waking life they wanted to take action with a problem they were having, but when it came time to do it they felt unable to go through with it.
