Any competition suggests a struggle between two polarities, though in the spiritual sense it is actually a joint effort to overcome a challenge. To be competing in a dream is to perhaps look for a better performance from ourselves than we have managed hitherto. As todays world is highly competitive our dreams may highlight competitiveness in ways that we do not consciously recognize. Dreaming of running a race might highlight such competition in the workplace. Competition in both men?s and women?s dreams will highlight their area of competitiveness. A woman for instance might find herself competing against another woman for recognition, whereas a man may simply find himself in competition with all and sundry.
