Being rescued from a pursuing animal, a potential drowning, etc. often indicates the dreamer needs to rescue themselves from a disturbing or even a potentially threatening situation that they are experiencing in their business or in their personal life.

Generally this manifests a circumstance from real life that exerts greater force than normal.

It is particularly when you have to bring about some type of business or project that the dreamer sees this. On the other hand, the person or thing that you save can be an aspect of your personality that you have previously rejected and are looking for a means of expressing it.

If you are rejected, you should analyze the dream scene in its totality. For example, being saved from the jaws of a ferocious animal could indicate that you fear something related to your instincts or nature.

If they save you from a storm at sea, it evidences how close you have been to drowning in your own emotions. The person that takes you out of danger probably symbolizes the psychological qualities and attitudes that you should take on in real life.

The most common tradition says that everyone has the potential to be a hero or superhero. Within you are hidden the resources that make you able to get what you want. In this way, nothing is impossible.

Avoid all unnecessary risks as you are likely to be in an accident-prone phase for a few weeks following a dream of being rescued; but if your dream involved rescuing someone else, or others being rescued, it signifies sudden success in overcoming a previously sticky obstacle.

If you dream of being rescued, you feel trapped or unable to help yourself and you wish someone would get you out of the situation, or you don’t want to take responsibility and you wish someone would sweep in and make it all better.

If you dream of rescuing someone, you have a strong protective urge and you feel responsible for others.
