When one is developing psychically, it is possible to become aware of the subtle forces and energy around. This can be experienced as being pushed. When in a dream we are being pushed, there is an energy around us that enables us to achieve what we want. If we are pushing, then we are usually exerting our will positively. Pushing something uphill, such as a car or snowball, suggests that we are trying to resist natural forces. When in everyday life we are aware of pressure, this can surface in dreams as being pushed and can sometimes indicate a fear of illness. In certain forms of mental illness, the patient experiences a feeling of being pushed around and made to do something he does not want to do. Occasionally, when experienced in dreams, this can actually be a form of healing.
