What does it mean when you dream about watching something?

Watching something in a dream could reflect suspicion, though it could also simply be a message from our subconscious that we need to pay more attention to something. A dream about watching could also be alluding to the meaning of a common idiom, such as “watch your back,” “a watched pot never boils,” “it’s like watching grass grow,” “watch the clock,” etc.
