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. 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?
You might be making yourself late on purpose as a means of avoiding responsibilities. 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. There may be 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? 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.
