Escape represents our own need for spiritual freedom and the ability to consciously move on. Trying to escape from someone signifies that we are feeling threatened. It is possible that anxiety or past trauma means we are unable to do anything other than try to escape from the situation itself. When we dream of escape we are trying to move beyond - or to avoid - difficult feelings. We may be trying to run away from responsibility or from duty. Broadly, escape in a womans dream will have an emotional content perhaps triggered by fear. In a mans dream the reason is likely to be more considered.
