Bear In A Field
I only remember parts of this one.
I am in a field. It is peaceful and green and I can see trees off in the distance. All of the sudden, there is a brown bear and I run. He is close behind me and I hop over a barbed wire fence and run for the trees. Then I am suddenly at some meeting in a shopping mall that has pink stucco walls.

Chase dreams are quite common and often reflect a situation that you are afraid in confronting. The bear is symbolic of introspection and self-reflection. In mythology, it also refers to the great mother figure.
The green fields indicates your hopes and your unlimited potential for growth. The fence is obviously an obstacle that you overcome and is a reflection of your determination and will. I think the bear is chasing you not to attack you, but to push you away. It is no coincidence that you run toward the trees. The trees are significant for they are a symbol of self-development and individuality. Your mother may be pushing you to explore the world on your own and become your own person.
At the end of your dream, you suddenly found yourself in a meeting. The meeting reiterates again how you need to redirect your energies in a more productive manner.
