Searching anxiously for refuge for protection from the inclement environment, or from persecution, indicates a state of insecurity, and the need to search for help and protection. The dreamer could have been rejected socially and feel isolated on the emotional plane, or they may be searching to protect themselves from disloyal and false people that surround them. In the same manner, the dream denotes a great desire to evade problems. Fleeing, of course, reduces the probability that they will be resolved. Dreaming of displaced peoples, for whatever reason, foretells failure of well conceived plans.
