In almost all the mythological stories, petrification is the gods’ punishment for a gaze that has crossed the permissible limit. In this case, the dream is indicative of a guilty conscience. On the other hand, there are occasions when the dreamer tries to react to a violent situation, or simply tries to move, and can’t. These dreams reflect a state of involuntary paralysis that could be physical, emotional, or intellectual. It is best to analyze the circumstances of your life to discover the cause of this immobility.

Do animals dream?
Research conducted by various scientists show that animals do experience dream while sleeping. They also experience similar sleep stages like human beings - REM and Non-REM. If you have noticed a dog sleep, it might sometimes wag its tail, this indicates some response to its dream. A study was conducted in a cat by removing a part of the brain stem, which will not prevent it from reacting to the dream during REM. It was noted in some cats they were aggressively chasing mice as in reality.
