To dream of hitchhiking represents using others to reach goals. There may be a person or situation that allows you to feel a certain way or to reach an objective without any serious commitment of your own.
Hitchhiking may be a sign that you may not want to focus all your energy or resources towards your goals. You may prefer to taste or sample something before committing yourself fully. You may wish to play with opportunities or use other people’s resources before really jumping into something.
Example: A woman who was interested in public service dreamed of a hitchhiker at the same time that she got involved in volunteer work. The hitchhiker reflected her interest in using the community center to perform public service without having to make serious commitments to politics.
