Just imagine if the dream you had last night, contained the answer that you have been looking for? What if we could actually look at our dreams as a roadmap to our anxieties, hopes and fear?
Believe it, dreams are one of the most fascinating and mysterious parts of the human experience, and interpretation of dreams can give us a good indication of what may be currently happening in our subconscious mind!
The dreams explained in this post are going to cover some of the people reading this, so if you’ve been having a weird dream and you don’t know what it means, stick around and you’ll find the meaning here.
Here are the 12 most common dreams and their meanings.
1. The Dream Where You’re Being Chased By Someone Or Something:
It indicates that you are avoiding issues in your life instead of addressing them. May be, your brain is trying to send you the message that you need to address the problem. OR That you’re just feeling
endangered or under pressure. You might need to look at what’s stressing you out most in life.
2. Falling From A Height
This seems to be the most common dream, It simply means that you are losing control of yourself and you have fear of failure OR It’s believed to be a sign that something in your life is spiraling out of control, whether that’s your job, your finances, your marriage or relationship. It also means that no matter how hard you’ve tried at something, you keep failing at it and you need to let it go.
3. Being naked
A dream of being naked (particularly before a group of peers) is a sign of insecurity, humiliation, shame or feelings of vulnerability. Some psychiatrists are of the view that dreaming of ourselves nude may be a message to become liberated, get a taste of true freedom and break out of the ties that keep us chained.
4. Dreams About Failing Your Exams
If you are a student then obviously these dreams are a part of the exams related anxiety. But, if you have graduated many – many years ago and still having the dream/nightmare of being back in college and worrying that you are going to fail in this particular exam. Then, usually, these types of dreams relate to your job. When you were in college, school was your main occupation, so dreams about failing out of school can usually be traced back to your fear that something bad is going to happen at work.
5. Seeing large water body
This can mean you’re over your head or in lots of financial trouble. It could also symbolise stress or the feeling of having LOTS of big responsibilities.
6. Dreams Where You Can’t Run
The dreams where no matter how hard you try, you can’t run, your life depends on running, but somehow you are either running in slow motion, or it feels like you’re trying to run through an invisible barrier and failing ― is said to occur when you’re suffering from low self-esteem or a lack of self-confidence. You can also have them when you’re going through a current situation in which you feel powerless!
7. A Dream About the dead
To see or talk to the dead in your dream forewarns that you are being influenced by negative people. On the other hand it may also be a way for you to resolve your feelings with those who have passed on.
If you dream of a person who has died a long time ago, then it may suggest that a current situation or relationship in your life resembles the quality of that deceased person. It also means you’re scared of change. It can also mean you’re feeling vulnerable.
8. Meeting Someone Famous
This usually means you’re excited about them and like them as a person. This is often day residue as we see celebs on the TV during the day and therefore will dream about them often.
9. Dreams Of Car Crash
These kinds of dreams are common and usually mean you’re in a conflict with someone close to you and it needs resolving.
10. Flying In The Dream
This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve joined ’em witches – No!😂 Most flying dreams are pleasant, happy, and exciting. These are usually ‘lucid dreams’, which means that you’re aware of the fact that you’re dreaming. You probably don’t have to look into this one too much. Just take hold of the plot and enjoy the exhilaration of living up a story written and directed by you!
11. Losing A Tooth
This simple seems to refer to your power and usually means you’re feeling subconsciously repressed or controlled. It can mean you really WANT to leave a job, but you’re feeling trapped or like you can’t for some reason.
12. About Murder
These kinds of dreams doesn’t always mean you want to kill the person you see yourself killing. It more commonly means you want to kill that part of YOURSELF that the dream character REPRESENTS. To dream that you witnessed a murder indicates deep-seated anger towards somebody. To dream that you are murdered suggests that some important and significant relationship has been severed. You are trying to disconnect yourself from your emotions.
