5 Common Dreams And Their Meaning•
Posted on December 23 2020
Every night we spend over two hours dreaming. From frantic chases to exhilarating flying experiences, the meaning of the dreams we remember can often escape us. But if the subconscious chooses these images, it is because they convey a set of symbols that have a meaning in our life. The interpretation of dreams says a lot about the sleeper, but you still need to know how to decipher it! In this article we will go through 5 common dreams and understand what they represent.
LOOSING YOUR TEETH
Don’t worry! This dream is a great classic and touches people all over the world from diverse cultures and origins. It is believed to be linked to the loss of our baby teeth, the sign of our first big physical change. It marks the transition from infancy to childhood. Thus, it's no surprise that our brain makes the connection between our first experience of mutation and elements of our present life that make us anxious. Dreaming about your teeth falling as an adult, often means that you are afraid or worried about the changes that are happening in your current life
THE DEATH OF A LOVED ONE
Again, don't panic! These types of dreams should not be taken literally. Remember that dreams are just about your life experiences. People and events in them are just symbols that your subconscious is using. Symbolically, it is a pattern or aspect of ourselves that is disappearing - a character trait that we have had for a while, aspirations or goals abandoned. A move or a change of job are thus conducive to this type of dream.
DREAMING OF SCHOOL OR WORK
To dream of not studying for a test, being late for work or not being prepared for a meeting are all signs of vulnerability. More profoundly, it can also be the fear of being caught off guard, as we truly are, unvarnished and unprotected. Indeed, many of us put on a mask to conceal certain aspects of our personality from employers, colleagues, teachers and even friends. The thought of removing this protection leaves us vulnerable, just as if you were sitting in a classroom with nothing but your underwear.
BEING ATTACKED OR PURSUED
This is a common theme recurring in childhood nightmares that people remember throughout their lives and it is full of symbolic possibilities. The attacker can represent fear or an inner desire repressed by consciousness. Some even argue that this was in fact a dream inherited from our ancestors, whose survival depended on their ability to respond to attacks from large predators.
Such dreams can occur when neurotransmitters in the brain suddenly switch from one stage of sleep to another. Even if there is a physiological instigator, dreams of falling can have many symbolic meanings as they often reflect experiences of sudden change, disruption, loss, or trauma.
