7 Common Dream Meanings You Should NEVER Ignore!

7 Common Dream Meanings You Should NEVER Ignore!

At first glance, dreams might be just fictional scenarios our minds make up when we’re sleeping. But what if there’s more to them than just stories we tell others, or write about after? Although there’s no scientific evidence to prove that dreams hold special meaning, for many years they have been studied to promote better self-awareness, and to help us understand what’s bothering us in our everyday lives. According to Suzanne Bergman, a social worker and dream specialist, “Dreams are a universal language, creating often elaborate images out of emotional concepts.” Have you been recognizing certain themes you frequently dream about? Here are 7 common dream meanings. This is a common dream many people have. Being lost or trapped usually means you’re unsure about what step to take next from a particular circumstance in real life. People who dream about getting lost in the woods, a large building, or any maze-like structure in general often feel overwhelmed and can’t seem to find a way out. This reflects the mental, physical, financial, or emotional burdens they’re experiencing in real life. Do you ever dream about missing public transportation, such as a bus, train, plane, or taxi? Often, people who dream about such scenarios tend to miss them only by a fraction of a second. This can also pertain to scenarios where you dream about being late for a job interview, performance, or special event. In real life, these dreams may reflect the regrets you have for not going after what you wanted. Whether that means missing out on seeing your favorite band perform live, Or not applying for your dream job on time. People who dream about these scenarios usually find themselves in or near a car vehicle. They can either be the driver or the passenger when they experience a brake failure, flat tire, or getting hit by another car. In real life, this typically means that you feel like you don’t have control over a certain situation, or you might be headed for trouble in the future. Contrary to what it sounds like, people who dream of this scenario are usually no longer in school. Common dream scenarios involve having trouble finding the test room, being unprepared from lack of studying, or missing equipment to complete it. They indicate that you are feeling tested in real life, which makes you anxious about what your future holds. This is a common dream people with anxiety often have. They usually dream about being chased by an animal, person, or something you cannot readily identify. In real life, it means that they are trying to run away from a certain situation, or it could be an emotion they are not ready to confront yet, whether it’s grief, or a breakup. Have you ever dreamed about reaching into your mouth, only to feel your teeth fall out, or that there is a missing gap? This indicates that you may feel insecure in real life, unattractive, or not good enough, whether it pertains to school, your work life, or romantic relationship. You may also have a fear of being embarrassed or judged by others. People who dream of this scenario often find themselves falling from a high building, or sinking into an ocean. They usually feel helpless and overwhelmed. It’s a common misconception to believe that having those dreams mean a foreshadow to your own death. But in reality, they indicate your fear of falling, or that you’re not content with where you are in life. You may need to carve a new path, or make some new choices to help you find meaning again.

  5. In the Philippines, dreaming about teeth falling out signifies a death of someone close to you. And to reverse this, you must bite on a piece of wood when you wake up

    My physiatrist diagnosed me as having seasonal depression

  10. Me I dreamed before of being chased by zombies but then I realized it's my own head so I was able to headshot them all.

  11. I know this is kinda late but I once dreamed that I was about to fall from a high platform but somebody saved me

  12. Me: having a dream

    Also me: wakes up in the middle of the dream

    Me three: goes back to sleep to finish the dream XD

  13. i don’t know if this happens to anyone else but it always happens to me, so i’ll be dreaming about something then i wake up and forget the dream, then i get to school and see someone that was in my dream and i feel so weird as if they had the same dream. idk it’s weird

  14. i had a dream where i was a furry, then i lost my fur suit but then i found it in a fridge. after that me and my friend got in a fight in walmart.

  15. I dreamed this, so i am a boy in the dream (i am a boy in rl too) So i died Then i becomed a girl, i was so stressed and sad and confused it was like a nightmare.

  16. I commonly dream that I'm in my car and then, the road brutally ends and my parents and I dive into the lake or also I dream that I go all naked at school and everyone's look constantly at me and whispering things I usually can't hear🙁

  17. I used to have a dream with me driving a car, and suddenly not being able to stop because its broken and then die because of a car crash and I panick everytime

  18. Wait, so you're telling me I'm not the only one who dreams of their teeth falling out?! I thought it was too weird to be common omg!

  19. It’s not a dream really. But I’m really curious. Sometimes when I’m just about to drift off to sleep, I have this feeling that I’m falling for like a second and I spring up. Can you explain this??

  20. The second dream-tHiNg "missed opportunities"

  21. Well, when I was 5 or 6 I had a HUGEE crush on this boy in my class.. yah I know. I always had dreams about him hugging me or him making out with my best friend.. few weeks later he moved away to Canada LMFAO

  22. I be getting chased in some of my dreams witch is too scary for me because I’ll be getting chased by By a clown or a ghost from a scary movie or sum😥,and am I’m the only one that my dreams make me run slow and everywhere I hide they always end up finding me☠️

  23. The last one is totally me! The only dreams I recall are falling off something high. I also never feel fully active or pleased with what I do. That's why I have lots of hobbies but I'm always still thinking that I need more or something is missing 😐

  24. Has anyone ever had a dream that was so good, and felt so long and then your body wakes up at 4 in the morning. Then you’re like “I want to finish that dream!” And somehow to back to bed and continue that dream?

    And sometimes I get dreams about things that happen later in life, like a vision. Does god already know who I’m going to marry and how many kids I’m going to have? I’d like to know as well please god lol

  25. Am I the only one who hasn't had any of these kinds of dreams? I've looked up my types of dreams and apparently no one has the kind I have.

    Whenever I do dream (I don't dream every night), I have reoccurring dreams that I've had when I was younger. I dream the same setting and a similar scenario, but something different happens. I tend to notice my surroundings and who I converse with rather than when I was younger and just dreaming the dream. In some nights, I have multiple of these dreams (at max 3-4). The dream never changes it's several settings I've revisited. I don't dream about specific people or interact with people I know in real life or that I know of online. I've remembered at least 7 different settings that have been reoccurring throughout my life each time I dream.

    I know some people have reoccurring dreams, but am I the only one who has them everytime I dream? Another thing is I remember my first dream and I've had it reoccurring as well. It seems like a far stretch, but I know what I dreamed.

    If someone is reading this far, I'd really like to dig deeper into why I have these reoccurring dreams and how come I am unable to dream of normal things that's common. If you know anything about this please reply to this comment!

  26. I had a dream where my plant for the science project got ticked of by a bird. Weeks later it happened, and remembered the dream I have, I was shooked.

  27. I commonly dream about me driving (idk how to drive) going down a hill I know in my area, then losing control of my brakes. Also missing things last second. The worst kinds of dreams because I can literally feel my anxiety boiling in my blood.😖

  33. My cousin got hit by a car not to long ago. And I had a dream about a little girl who got hit by one in front of me. I was just screaming when it happened and then I woke up. Does that mean I'm traumatized.

  38. My dream took place like this:
    Me doing stuff in the house, I see a child outside, (I'm a child myself) And I randomly decided to go outside and murder the kid (The place is taken in brod daylight) There were witnesses, nobody reacted, people just looked at me, gave me a weird look, and then went along to do their business.
    The next day, the police showed up to my house, gave me a 100$ fine for murdering a kid, and took my dog and cat away (I don't even have pets in real life.) Then they forced me to stay in my mom's house, for 5 days, and locked up, for punishment, and if I left, they would eat my organs, so dream me decided to leave for some reason, and of course they ate my organs. Fast forward to my funeral, (I had lots of friends and family in my dream for some reason) And the only people that showed up to my funeral were my pets. JUST MY PETS.
