If you were hiding, there is some suggestion that you're keeping a secret or withholding information from someone in your waking life.
You may be trying to bury your head in the sand and not deal with a particular situation or issue that is on your mind during your waking hours. Is this serving you well so far? If not- it might be time to choose another approach.
You might feel the need to tell someone this piece of information before it comes out via another source. Would it be better coming from you than through someone else via gossip and rumours?
Another thought is that you're hiding something from yourself and perhaps need to explore what that could be and bring it to the surface. If you weren't sure what you were hiding from in the dream- then maybe your subconscious is trying to work out what it is you've been suppressing for so long.
Hiding can also mean that you fear something during the day- a situation or a person and don't feel ready to confront that fear.
Perhaps you often avoid confrontation where you can and feel that if you hide from a person or thing that you will not be put in the position to be argumentative even if you have the urge to.
One final interpretation is that you have the opportunity to highlight your talents rather than keeping them to yourself.
Your fear may be criticism, however if you want to embrace your gifts fully, this might come as part of the package.
Perhaps you need to learn to view criticism as constructive- something that will help you to grow a thicker skin rather than viewing it as a setback.
