Why do we dream? Are your dreams as symbolic as they seem?
All of us do have dreams while sleeping. Try to imagine the dream you had last night, containing the answer you are looking for. What if we could really look unto our dreams as our guideline to our deeper self who holds our anxieties, hopes and fears? If we would be able to interpret the hidden mysteries of our dreams then this insight would be life-changing. I do believe that dreams hold fantasies and mysteries of our human experience and being able to interpret our dreams would be a great indication of what currently is happening in our subconscious mind.
Here are 10 most common dreams and their meanings…
The Dream Where you’re Being Chased by Someone or Something:
This means that you are trying to avoid issues present in your life instead of facing them. It is advised by your brain to address immediately the problem.
The Falling Dream
These dreams imply anxiety and loss of control in your waking life. According to Dream Dictionary, the falling dream happens frequently out of all the dreams we experience throughout our entire lifetime. It’s a sign that something in your life is going out of control; it might be your job, finances, marriage or relationship.
The N***d Dream
In a dream of being n***d (particularly before a group of nobles) is a sign of insecurity, humiliation, shame or feeling of vulnerability. Some psychiatrists see this as a message of being liberated, to be able to get a taste of true freedom and break the chains that bind us.
The Dream about Failing Your Exams
If you are a student then apparently these dreams are part of the anxiety related to the exams. However, in the case you have graduated many years ago; still having the dream/nightmare of being back in college and worrying that you are going to fail a particular exam. Then, usually this would pertain to your job. When you were in college, school was your main way of life, so dreams about failing out of school can usually be associated to your fear that something bad is going to happen at work.
The Dream Where You Think You Woke Up But You Didn’t
This is one of the most common dreams which often takes place in the morning hours when you’re nearly awake but not quite. In this dream you assume having waken up and you start with your daily routine; taking a bath, eating breakfast, checking your phone, brushing your teeth, etc. These dreams occur when you’re very worried about the upcoming day and you’d want to be fully equipped to face the challenge.
The snake dream:
Seeing a snake or being bitten by one in your dream symbolizes hidden fears and worries that are threatening you. Your dream tells you something in your life that you are not aware of or has not yet appeared.
Otherwise, the snake may be seen as phallic and thus symbolizes temptation, danger and forbidden sexuality. In other communities the snake is seen as a positive symbol representing healing, knowledge and wisdom. Choose your side!
The Flying Dreams
In these dreams, they are usually pleasant, happy, and exciting. These dreams are actually called lucid dreams which mean that you are fully aware of the truth that you’re dreaming. This does not need too much thought. Just take a good grip of the plot and enjoy the excitement of living up a story that is controlled by YOU.
The Dream Where You Can’t Run
There are dreams wherein no matter how hard you try, you can’t run. It feels like your life depends unto running but in this case you are either running in slow motion or it feels like you’re trying to run over an invisible barrier and failing. This dream is said to happen when you’re suffering from low-esteem, lack of self-confidence or when you’re going through a current situation in which you feel helpless!
The dream of the dead
This is a serious dream – being able to see or talk to the dead in your dream warns that you are being influenced by negative people. Also it may be a way for you to resolve your resentment towards those who have passed away. If you dream of a deceased person from long time ago then it reminds you of his or her quality; visible through your current relationship or situation.
The dream of a M****r
Having a dream that you have committed a m****r is usually a subconscious expression of some suppressed anger or rage at yourself or someone. To dream that you witnessed a m****r means deep-seated anger towards somebody. Being m******d in your dream indicates that some important and vital relationship has been severed. Therefore, you are trying to disconnect yourself from your emotions.
