To dream that you are walking the plank represents a lack of choice or feeling that you are being forced into something. Forced to accept a fate or alternative choice that you don’t like. Facing a problem whether you like it or not. It may also reflect your worst fears becoming a reality. Feeling pushed into failure or an unpleasant ending.
Example: A woman dreamed of feeling forced to walk . In waking life she was very happy in her career, but due to her pregnancy she felt forced to have to accept maternity leave and risk losing the opportunity to keep building her career.
