Surely many times, when you just woke up, you wonder what your dreams mean. According to psychology, dreams are the interpretation that we give to the world of which we are conscious and to the world of the subconscious. Most dreams have meaning. There are dreams that are very common and that many of us have dreamed of even once in our lives.
It is true that there are dreams that have a common meaning, but do not forget that your imagination also plays a very important role and each of us must give it the interpretation that seems most correct to us. Dreams, after all, reflect who we are, how we think and our way of being, therefore, each of us must also give it a different interpretation. These are the most common dreams and their meaning:
Dreaming that you are being chased or running away from something
This dream can happen in many ways. Being chased by another person, being chased by an animal, being chased by a monster, etc … You are running away from something that scares you or that generates a lot of anxiety. What you run from or what chases you is a problem for you. Although it can be an overwhelming dream and many times it can even be a nightmare, our subconscious tries to tell us that we must face this problem, that we have to be strong and not let ourselves be overcome by it.
If you are being chased by an animal, it may mean that you are running away from your own feelings, your desires, or your own anger. If something dark and unfamiliar is haunting you, it may be related to past trauma. If you are being chased by a person you know, it may mean that you have feelings for them and are trying to run away from your feelings.
Dreaming that your teeth are falling out
This dream is closely related to the confidence you have in yourself. In the end, the smile is a very important part of our face, it says a lot about us. The smile is not only something physical and superficial, but it is in the mouth and is where we communicate. To dream that your teeth are falling out means that something has happened in your life that has caused you to lose confidence in yourself. It is related to anxiety about our appearance, wanting to be someone that we are not really or that we worry about how others see us. This dream arises from the fear of rejection, shame or having very low self-esteem.
Being also related to communication, it can also mean wanting to say something and not being able or that it is very difficult for you to express yourself.
It is very common to dream that we are naked in front of others or that we are missing some piece of clothing that covers our body. In your dream, you feel exposed, even ashamed or humiliated. It means that you are afraid to show yourself as you are and that others will see your true self. You are afraid to show what your imperfections and your flaws are.
But if in your dream you are naked and you feel comfortable and you do not feel ashamed, it can mean the opposite. That you are happy to be who you are, that you want people to admire and recognize you. You are comfortable in your own skin because you have nothing to hide. You have enough confidence in yourself that everyone sees you for who you are.
Dream of fire or a fire
Many times we dream that our own house is burned or that something that we hold dear is burned. The house represents ourselves, our intellect, our mind. Being on fire, we need to find a place to be safe. There is something that is making you feel trapped and you need to get out of there anyway to find calm, security.
Dreaming of fire is closely related to transformation, with the end of something and the beginning of something new.
Dream about spiders
That there are spiders in your dream means that you feel trapped in something or that you feel that someone is lying to you, especially if cobwebs also appear. You feel trapped in a situation that you surely cannot see with your own eyes.
Dreaming of spiders as such can indicate that there is something that gives you a lot of anxiety and a lot of fear. It is also related to your emotions. This dream can mean that there is something in your relationships that does not let you be yourself, that catches you and does not let you go. If you dream of spiders, pay close attention to what is happening around you, because it may indicate that you should take a little more care of your relationships.
Dreaming of spiders in the middle of a pandemic is VERY common. At the end of the day, we feel trapped in this situation, we cannot do anything and we worry that we will not be able to enjoy our life. We need to protect ourselves from our fears.
Dream about pregnancies
It does not have to be that you dream that you are pregnant, simply that there is a pregnancy in your dreams. It is something positive, because it means that there is something that is forming, that is growing. If you dream that you are pregnant, it is because there is something new growing “inside” of you. It can be anything, from an idea, to a project, a job, a relationship, etc …
It is a dream synonymous with changes. If you dream that you are giving birth, it indicates that you will achieve your goals and that you will go as far as you propose. It is a super positive dream and dreaming about it often brings great luck.
Dreaming of dying or death
These dreams really are nightmares and can leave us unsettled when we wake up. If you dream of the death of a person you love, it reflects anxiety about changes, fear of the unknown or fear of losing something that makes you feel very safe.
Death means the end of something and the beginning of something new that is unknown to us. If you dream that someone dies, reflect on what that person means to you. Go much further, to the end of the matter. In the end it will be something that you are very afraid of losing or something that is coming to an end and you don’t want it to ever end.
It is said that if you dream of someone’s death, you are giving them years of life.
Dream about the person you like
When you start to like someone or when you are very much in love, you do not stop thinking about that person ALL day. So it is quite normal to dream about him / her. You may be in a relationship with another person but dream of someone you liked in adolescence or that you dream of someone with whom you left things pending. This dream is related to your own desire, to wanting something very strongly and never getting it.
