To dream about ticking things off a list suggests a sense of completion.

Perhaps you have recently finished something and you are feeling satisfied with your efforts. 

On the flipside, the dream might be alerting you to the things you need to do, the items you need to tick off your to-do list, especially if you have been procrastinating lately. 

If there was a rhythmic ticking in your dream, perhaps this is a sign you are running out of time to get something done. It might be wise to get moving if you want to reach a deadline. 

Ticking of this sort can be a source of irritation, so to hear a ticking in your dream might signify something in your waking hours that is wearing you down and maddening you because of its repetitiveness. How can you break the cycle?

If someone was ticking a piece of your own work, it could be that you are seeking approval from someone in your waking hours. Consider who was in the dream with you to determine who this could be. 

On the other hand, if someone was ticking something you’d done, perhaps you have recently received some praise in return for your work. If this is the case, enjoy the recognition, especially if it doesn’t happen all that often.  

If someone was ticking your work too enthusiastically, perhaps this person dishes out praise too freely in your waking hours and the dream is telling you not to let it go to your head. If they don’t know how to deliver constructive criticism, it renders their approval meaningless. 

If a parasite was attached to you in your dream, it’s possible someone in your life is a bad influence on you. Perhaps they follow you around and suck you of all your energy and you need to find a way to detach yourself from them. 

A tick could also mean that you are carrying around something with you that isn’t serving you. A troubled memory, a bad attitude or baggage that you don’t need to burden yourself with anymore. It may be time to let this go or seek out someone who can help you to.

Is it worth all your time and attention or are you wasting precious moments of your life on something that will only make you feel worse? Ask yourself why you are so interested in this person’s life anyway- what is it about them that you find so fascinating? Do they live the life you want? Do they have the things you crave? Do they spend their time doing the things you yearn for or go to places you’ve always wanted to?
