Interpretation of dream: Refuge

Dreaming of needing refuge suggests the need for some kind of sanctuary for the spirit. Spiritually, dreaming of being a refugee indicates that we are trying to escape from some anxiety or terror or from some authority greater than ourselves. If in dreams we are conscious of a place being a refuge, we can assume that we are temporarily emotionally secure. Dreaming of giving refuge indicates that we are capable of offering others that security. In more mundane terms only those who have been refugees themselves can know what it truly feels like, so any dream of being a refugee is going to be a dramatization of our circumstances. We need to identify the feeling and deal with it. Being in a refugee camp in dreams will highlight our feelings of displacement.
