What does it mean when you dream about pulling?

Pulling in a dream can be a direct reflection of exerting effort in one’s waking life. If we dream about being pulled, it represents our sense of being influenced, of being “pulled” in a certain direction. The dream might also be drawing on a idiomatic sense of pull, as in “pulling strings,” to “have pull,” to “pull something off,” to “pull together,” or to “pull rank.”
