Stampede dream of a stampede represents behavior that you feel can’t be stopped. Feeling overwhelmed by other people who are impossible to control. Other people’s opinions, wishes, or goals that you feel trample all over your own. Succumbing to a mob mentality. A high demand situation. An overwhelming group overreaction.
A stampede may also reflect your fear that once something starts it can’t be stopped. Powerlessness to prevent yourself from being overpowered or brushed aside. Feeling that it’s dangerous to assert yourself.
Alternatively, a stampede may reflect a sudden shock to you or someone else that has been procrastinating.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing horses and donkeys stampeding into a sand dune. In waking life he felt that he was going to lose his job and partly felt an urgency to rush and find another job while also feeling that it may end up being an overreaction that leaves him without any job.
To see a stanchion barrier represents the direction that certain beliefs or situations are guiding you in life. For example, if you see a stanchion barrier that goes left and then turns to go back to the right it may represent turning around morally, or the reversal of a positive situation.
It may also point to patience required to reach an objective.
