There is something in your waking life that is causing you anxiety or challenge if you were challenged in your dream. Your dream’s challenge rating may be indicative of the extent to which you’re worrying about real-world events. As a metaphor for the difficulties you overcome on a daily basis, a challenge can have a positive connotation if it was relatively easy to complete or if it was directly tied to your interests or hobbies. If you found the challenge to be too difficult, you are probably feeling pressured.
In your dream, you challenged another person to do something, which suggests that you are not facing enough challenges in real life. You’re hoping to reawaken your interest in the dream world because everything else has lost its luster. One sign of self-assurance is issuing a challenge to another dream character.
Your willingness to take on the challenge in your dream is indicative of your willingness to face your anxieties and fight for what is right in the real world. You have a lot of confidence in yourself, which serves you well in the real world. People respect and admire your challenge to tackle any challenge, no matter how daunting it may seem.
Having a fear of being judged or failing in the real world can explain why you turned down the challenge in your dream. You may be coping with the stresses of life in unhealthy ways because you are sometimes overwhelmed. Realize that life is not going to always be easy.
If you were able to overcome the challenge you faced in your dream, you should expect to achieve tremendous success in the near future. There’s a major event in your life for which you’ve been preparing, and now you’re ready to take on everything the real world throws at you.
Insomnia is a sign of anxiety about an approaching task in the waking world if you dreamed that you failed the challenge offered to you in the dream. Whether it’s a huge presentation at work or school or a family emergency, you worry that you’re not up to the task at hand. Realize there are some things for which there is no way to plan, and that no one can fault you for trying.
There’s a lot of stress in your life if you had to fight for the challenge in your dream. You and another person are involved in a disagreement that needs to be settled. Any dream in which physical violence is depicted is a bad omen, and the waking world should work quickly to rectify the problem depicted.
