Some people dream about being unable to walk. Some dream about falling. Others have dreams about wheelchairs. There are a number of different explanations for why this is, but one thing is certain: dreams can be very strange.
There are several theories regarding how and why the wheelchair appears in dreams. One theory is that the wheelchair symbolizes our conscious fears of becoming disabled, sick or dying, but there are other explanations as well.
In many cases, dreams about wheelchairs may simply be a way for our subconscious minds to warn us about potential dangers or problems in our lives.
For example, if you dreamed that you were in a wheelchair and you couldn’t move forward, that may be a sign that something important isn’t working properly in your life. You need to find what this is and you need to try to fix it.
On the other hand, if you dreamed that you fell from a wheelchair, then this might be a sign that you don’t have control over some part of your life (maybe you are unable to control your emotions?).
