To dream about being lost in a dense forest suggests that you are feeling confused or uncertain in your waking hours.
Perhaps you can’t see a way out of a situation you have got yourself in.
Who or what can you call upon for guidance?
It may be that you are panicking because you feel out of control- so try to calm yourself before thinking about your next steps.
Often when you are overwhelmed by something- this is when wrong choices are made so try to breathe and think about things rationally.
To walk in a forest that felt welcoming to you might be your dream telling you to spend some more time in nature.
If you have been cooped up indoors for some time now, it may be wise to put on your best walking boots and get exploring.
This may be even more beneficial if you have been struggling with your mental health lately too.

To see a sparse forest and you may be feeling exposed in your waking hours. What can you do to protect yourself more?
Have you done something lately to put yourself at risk? If so, it might be wise to stop or try and reverse some of the damage.

Break the word down for additional meaning- ‘for’ and ‘rest’- could the dream simply be encouraging you to take some time out?
Have you been working hard lately and has this relentlessness taken its toll on your body and mind?
If so, try to carve some time for yourself each day to recharge your batteries or you will struggle in both your professional and your personal life.
To see a forest burning in your dreams and you might be worried about something or someone coming along to destroy what you have or what you’ve built.
