To dream of dragging something represents feelings about a situation being reluctantly not in your favor. Feeling forced to get people to do something against their will. Feelings about someone “dragging their feet.” A lack of volunteering in a situation. Insisting a person or situation do what you want. Forcing others even if it means that they will “kick and scream” against you. Experiencing feelings of unwillingness from people or situations. Feeling forced to go along with others choices or demands reluctantly.
Negatively, dreams about being dragged could reflect feelings about being forced to deal with problems against your will. Parents, teachers, or authorities figures that are making you do something you don’t want to do.
Dreams of being dragged are very common to people involved in the military or their spouses who have to reluctantly witness them going off to service.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing his child dragged away from him. In waking life he was enlisted in the military and felt reluctantly forced to leave his family due to military service.
Example 2: A man dreamed of seeing someone being dragged along a floor. In waking life he experienced the death of his grandfather as the first person in his family to die. The dragging symbolism in this case may have reflected his feelings about witnessing his grandfather not wanting to die and feeling life forcing him to.
