Have you been having the same dream for years? Did you just wake up from an odd dream and you are wondering what it means? Here are a handful of common dreams and their meanings.
You can’t seem to get rid of that bad guy who’s chasing you. In your waking life, you’re having trouble getting past certain issues. It could be as serious as a relationship issue or as basic as a nagging feeling you just can’t seem to kick.
Teeth symbolize power and confidence. You show your teeth whether you’re snarling or smiling. When you dream that your teeth are falling out, it means that your self-assurance has taken a hit.
Can’t Find a Bathroom
If you’re not able to relieve yourself in a dream, it could be because you’re figuratively blocked in real life. You may need to get rid of something, like a bad friend or a horrible job. You fear that getting rid of this thing will be messy, so for now, you’re not making any moves.
Being Naked in Public
This dream means that you’re vulnerable, afraid of being exposed, and feeling out of place. There might be something in your life that is making you feel uneasy. For students who have the dream that they’re naked in a classroom, it could be because whatever they’re learning in school is making them feel insecure. When the dream takes place in a cafeteria, even if you’ve been out of school for years, it could point to social anxiety.
Taking a Test Without Preparing
Perfectionists often have this recurring dream because they’re constantly afraid that they’re going to mess up something that they’ve prepared for. When you dream about failing an exam that you’ve already taken and passed in real life, it could be because you’re worried about your performance, not necessarily your competence.
When you dream of flying, it’s often because you’ve gotten over a huge obstacle in your own life. You probably feel free of all limitations and you’re open to making big decisions, like the people on the new TV show by Steve Wynn have done in their lives.
Have you dreamt that you’re falling? This could point to perceived failure in life or the realization that you don’t have control over something.
Sometimes, interpreting a dream is as obvious as it seems. Other times, the answer and meaning isn’t entirely clear. Either way, it is important to take a good look at your own life to try to figure out where your dreams are originating.
