If you are dreaming about a situation where you are late, issues of ambivalence and opportunities lost need to be addressed in your waking life.

Ask yourself these questions after your dream. Are you the one that is late? Are you always late? You may be taking steps in your life that are counterproductive to your success, and being late in your dream is the message that you are missing out on life and miracles as a result.

Dreaming of being late also highlights issues of your own insecurity. Perhaps you do not feel worthy of opportunities in life?

Dreaming About Being Late

If you dream about being late it could mean there are issues in your waking life you do not want to face but are reluctant to admit. You might be making yourself late on purpose as a means of avoiding responsibilities.

This stressful dream may be caused by an issue of time in your current life. Are you running out of time over an issue or situation? Or do you simply feel like you are running out of time?

It’s not always negative though. In some cases being late can actually be helpful in our life, and the message could simply be, “better late than never” when it comes to acknowledging opportunities in our waking worlds.

If this is a situation where a bodily function like a period, bowel movement, or immune response is late, this can be tied to our insecurities about these elements of our lives and require more investigation into their specific meanings.

Dreaming About Someone Else Being Late

Is someone else the person that is late in your dream? This person may not be giving their whole Selves to your current relationship, and are putting themselves before you in the partnership.

This dream indicates there is a balance in your waking life within your relationships that needs to be restored. You may feel disrespected by someone and that they are not respecting the time and effort you put into your relationship.

Dreaming About Being Late For Your Journey

If you dream you are late for a journey, such as that you miss a bus, train, or plane, it indicates that you feel something is missing in your waking life.

This dream often appears after experiencing a loss of some kind. It is also your soul’s way of telling you that a part of you feels missing. It is good to do some inner exploration work during waking life to get to the bottom of it.

If you are late for this journey despite putting in your best efforts to make it on time, it could indicate your frustration or rage at having missed out on an opportunity in your waking life.

If in your dream you keep checking the time to catch the transport and you are waiting for it, but you miss it anyway, this is an indication that you are feeling physically and mentally exhausted in your waking life.
