This dream is often referred to as a nightmare as it generally indicates a crisis point of your life - where you seem to have no resolution. Obviously this dream is disturbing as it awakens the feeling of being exhausted and unable to deal with you events in life. It is clear from this dream you are experiencing an area of your waking life where you are feeling abandoned or abducted by somebody or a situation. Most of the time this dream is connected to a work situation. You need to analyse events that happened in your life recently as you feel that your spirit has been wounded. The message here is to start to look into situations which has resulted in you trying to overcome any conflict that you have experienced.
The most useful change for going forward is that you need to be able to be subjective in regards to your approach to situations with others. If you focus on looking at the practical matters in your waking life this will enable you to understand the background of complex situations, so you can find the best approach. A solution from another will be offered if you ask for help. Maybe you have been feeling that you have worked hard in order to get to where you are in life and that you are enjoying your projects and routine but you know that it is time to move on.
