Hide

 

a communal land allotment in England in the early Middle Ages. It was tilled by members of the so-called extended family. The most common size of the hide was 120 acres of plowable land. As a result of the fragmentation of peasant agriculture and the impoverishment of the ceorls during the development of feudalism, by the tenth century the virgate (one-fourth of a hide) became the land allotment for many peasants. Eventually, the hide became a unit of land measurement.

(dreams)
In daily life we hide from things that we don’t want to deal with or we hide from danger. As children we played the game of “hide and go seek, ”while as adults we enjoy “chase and discovery.” The emotional tone of your dream will reveal its meaning. If you are hiding out of danger, then you should consider those things in your life that propose a threat to you. They could be internal forces or environmental conditions. Generally, we attempt to hide our own negativity and mistakes. This dream may call for an honest reflection on personal characteristics and an evaluation of how much fear influences our lives and decision-making.
