A sense of inability to act in a given situation, usually with regard to love.
If the paralysis was total, then the dream may fear taking a certain action.
It could be whether or not to declare his love, propose marriage, or break up.
If the paralysis was only partial, sexual inhibitions could be the problem.
The dreamer may feel inhibited or blocked from moving ahead with plans for major changes in her life due to circumstances beyond her control.
