If you dream about being chased by needles, it means you are trying to avoid dealing with unsolved issues.
Needles, in general, signify vulnerability and complex situations that you aren't allowing yourself to comprehend completely. Needles are used in real life for safeguards and to treat things your body can't handle, which is why dreaming about them makes you feel out of control and unsure of how to solve problems. You may have a dream about needles soon before or after being in a clinical setting. When you think about or see things throughout the day, they frequently find their way into your dreams. If you're afraid of needles and hospitals, this could be precisely what you're trying to avoid.
The needle is a highly male metaphor, and depending on your perception, it might appear rather phallic. If you study the shape of the needle or the traits it possesses, you might be able to figure out what problems you're dealing with. If you're about to have intercourse with a man you're not sure about, avoiding a needle indicates that you have a psychological blockage that has to be resolved before you can successfully feel happy about what's to come. If you're in a relationship with a man and you find yourself avoiding needles, it could mean you're not completely satisfied and need to tackle your shared issues to help you overcome them and go on.
It's pretty common to feel emotionally weak in real life if a person who is close to you is hunting you with a needle. The person chasing you may or may not be the one making you feel weak, but they will almost always symbolize a prominent aspect of what you are fleeing. If you envision a parent following you, for example, parents are often thought of as someone who creates rules or limits for you - this could indicate that you are experiencing relationship issues since you may believe your partner is controlling you needlessly.
Dreaming about needles has numerous religious undertones, the most common of which idolize individuals around you, which is against the second commandment. If you feel this way, likely, you're not entirely idolizing others but instead finding attributes in others that you wish you possessed. If you are not religious, dreaming about a needle chasing you could indicate that you are avoiding a part of yourself that you are self-conscious about; in this case, it is likely to have been triggered by a masculine figure in your life.
If the needle has chased you and then stabbed you, it can be a terrifying experience to overcome. In general, it signifies someone's words or actions have just scarred you, and you're now bearing a load as a result. Try to assess your dream if you aren't already aware of what it could have been: What was the name of the person who stabbed you? What are your thoughts on the person? What does that individual stand for in your life? What was the appearance of the needle? Does it have any significance for you in terms of color?
To overcome troubles like being followed or stabbed by needles, you must first recognize the problems you're avoiding, then stop running and address them. Only then will you feel the weight of the burden lift off your shoulders. Being pursued by a murderer wielding a needle foreshadows a terrible period ahead.
