You look around you, and all you see is a misty environment. The fog is everywhere, and an eerie feeling is in the air — there’s there’s no light and no electricity anywhere. You feel scared and you want to run. You want to shout, but your voice has escaped you. Then you wake up. It was just a dream. Everyone sleeps, and therefore everyone dreams. We all experience good and bad dreams. But did you know that dreams can mean something? They say that dreams are subconscious manifestations of your fears and desires. While we don’t don’t remember most of our dreams, studies show that during the stage of sleep called rapid eye movement, we dream about six times. We usually remember dreams right after waking up, so if you are curious about what they mean, try to write them down right away. Many of us do not know what these dreams mean, but experts like sleep specialists and psychologists have come up with interpretations for some of the most common dreams people have. Read on to find out what your dream last night meant!
You Dreamed about a Loved One
If the dream is about a loved one, it usually means that you are passionate about this particular person. Remember that dreams are said to be manifestations of the subconscious. There are many variations to this dream. It could be a deceased loved one visiting you in the dream, which means that you love that person dearly—that you would do everything for them, so they would not leave you.
It could also be an indication of guilt, maybe because you did not spend that much time with the departed. On the other hand, dreaming of a partner can serve as a warning. To some degree, the brain could be warning you that you are not as in love with that person anymore. This means that you may have to work things out with that personthem. B, but if everything is normal, these types of dreams are usually no cause for concern.
You were attacked by a Dog
If you watched Harry Potter, you know that the Grimm, depicted as a scary dog, is a symbol of death. Seeing one, even in a dream, is said to be a bad omen that presages the imminent death of someone close to you. But on the flip side, if you dreamed that you were attacked by a dog, perhaps pinned to the flooring by the canine, it can mean that you are very faithful to your partner.
Dogs are man’s best friends, so if you are attacked by one in your dream, it could be a warning you need to be careful and rethink the amount of love you are giving to the people around you, especially your partner. Either you are giving too much or too little. Either way, it calls for reflection, and for you to figure out how you can improve the relationship further, so t. Think of what you can contribute and add to the relationship.
You dreamed of water
Water can drown a person. Water, when heated, can also turn to gas, signifying escape. So when you dream of water, it can mean that you are overwhelmed and would rather disappear into thin air. It can also mean that you feel unloved by relatives or those close to you. You probably want to escape from something or someone— i. It could even be a situation where you are feelfeel trapped in.
In general, dreams of floods or large bodies of water point to the heavy emotions a dreamer is carrying. When you dream of this, it is best to unload your feelings to a trusted person who can walk you through in identifying which emotions are causing you pain and what steps you can take. It is always best to open up so you won’t won’t be suppressing emotions that can drown you and lead you to develop mental health issues.
You dream of Dying
If you dream that you are dead or dying, it could signal that something is about to end in your life. It does not necessarily mean that you or someone close to you will die, but that a chapter, a segment, is about to close. If during the dream, you feel at ease, it could mean that you have accepted it would happen.
For example, we can all be anxious when we leave school and graduate, so sometimes, we dream right before graduation that we died. We still have student loans to pay for so; we cannot die yet. But the transition phase is a turbulent time, so that is probably why you dreamed of dying. In any case, dreams like this aren’t typically a cause for concern. Even if this were your dream, you can could always start over anyway, and there is no shame in that.
You dream of an animal in the garden
It does not have to be a garden per se, but if you see an animal in your dream, it could mean that you are anxious about how you behave socially. You might be having anxiety about not being accepted by other people or are scared that you are behaving in a way that offends others. An animal also symbolizes your intuition and your ability to assert yourself, as well as your confidence.
So if you dream about this, think of what has affected your confidence or your view of yourself lately? You are usually more than you give yourself credit for. There might also be a need to improve on a couple of behaviors so that you can feel more socially skilled. And, most importantly, you have to define yourself, and not let others do. Self-awareness goes a long way towards having a solid identity.
You dream of cars or vehicles
Generally, cars or vehicles in a dream tend to mean nothing. But if the dream involves crashing a car, it could be the brain signalling that you lack self-confidence. This means that you need to attend to, or put more focus on your mental and emotional health. Frequently, worrying about losing a job, a house over an unpaid mortgage, or a partner can result in car crash dreams.
It is not the end of course, as you can still work your way out. You can either do actions to prevent what you are afraid of or make steps so that you will be prepared to handle it when it happens. Either way, you can fix it. If needed, you can also ask for help from trusted friends or family members. As they say, your reaction to a stressful event is what defines you, not the event itself.
You dreamed of teeth falling out
This is perhaps one of the most common dreams. At one point, everyone has experienced this because we all had teeth falling out as young kids. The teeth symbolize your confidence and self-control. So when you dream of them being pulled out, it can mean that you are either losing control or you think you are losing control of the many issues in your life.
To put it more simply, you feel overwhelmed. In cases like this, the best response is to sit down and think of how you can address your problems one by one, prioritizing those that can be done quickly so that you will have small wins. You can also list down the regrets you have and start facing them. It will be difficult, but with the right degree of grit and determination, you can overcome these and not crumble down.
You dream of an airplane crash
We all have deadlines and projects that we work on daily. Excessive worrying about them can cause you to dream of an airplane crash. The airplane symbolizes the projects or plans you are working on. And, typically, the bigger the plane, the bigger the plan or project. Perhaps it is the insurance client you had been trying to close, or another project that has gone awry that is worrying you.
You probably think you will not be able to land the plane, arguably the most challenging part of operating an aircraft. But just like pilots who can undergo training, the best way forward is for you to figure out a way to make the project succeed. Look at the bigger picture, picture envision the end goal, and create a path to that. If neededIf the situation calls for it, you can ask for advice, upskill yourself or ask help from those who you can trust.
You dream of being trapped
This is as literal as a dream could get. If you dream that you are trapped somewhere, it is because you feel trapped in your current situation. The cliché goes that you are in between a rock and a hard place. It could mean that your relationship, work, or job is trapping you and not giving you any wiggle room. So the next time you dream of being in a small space, think of what is holding you back.
There may not be anything we can do about some situations, but to a degree, we can control how we react to them. If the current situation does not improve, we can always lay out a plan for ourselves to get out of the situation. Think of the things that are holding you back, and step by step, extricate yourself from them. It will be hard at first, but once you take the first step, the next ones will be easier.
You dream of birds
You hear birds chirping from either a tree or the house’s house’s roofing. Then you realize it’s just a dream and become curious about what it means. Dreaming of birds typically means that you long for someone and want to hear from them. During the old days, ravens were used to bring messages to and from people. You also see this in Merlin where Morgana usually sends messages through crows.
The same goes in the Old Testament, where two birds were asked by Noah to gather information about the then-flooded Earth. Birds have come to symbolize information being passed around. They can also mean bad tidings, so be prepared for bad negative news too. Missing someone you have not heard from in a long time can be quite stressful. What you can do in these instances is to reach out first, if you have not done so yet.
You dream of being in a confrontation
If you dream of yourself fighting someone violently, it could mean that you are facing bouts of frustration or dissatisfaction at work. This usually happens if you are not able to talk to anyone about what makes you angry and your grievance gets relegated to your subconscious. As a result, your desire for confronting that which makes you frustrated is transformed into a dream. What you can do in situations like these is to address your concern by talking to the person who is the source of your frustration.
It may be challenging at first, as the tendency is to lash out, or even zap them with electricity, but you have to approach the problem calmly. Once the issue is clarified, the dreams will decrease in frequency. RSome ways to move forward and take action after the dream include reading books on conflict management so that you can be prepared before talking to the person. You can also ask for mediation, if neededn drastic cases.
You dream of having a baby
Most associate dreaming of babies as a fertility sign, meaning, you will have a baby soon. It is speculated to mean that you have a desire to continue your father or mother’s mother’s legacy. Perhaps you want the moving company your father established to be passed on to the next generation through you.
On the other hand, it can also mean that you are looking forward to something new in your life, because having a baby often implies birth or renewal. It can mean creativity, too. It could mean a new faith, a new job, or a new business venture you are working on. Of course, whatever new beginning it is that you will embark on you will need to do your best for it to be successful. Working on a project does not stop at giving birth to the idea, as fulfillment is found in ensuring its completion.
You dream that you are on a plane
Riding a plane means that you take off the ground and fly swiftly to a new destination. This can mean that there are many changes in your life that are happening fast. The good thing is that, normally, these are the changes you wanted to happen. Maybe you are on the way to fulfilling your dream of becoming a lawyer. What is good about this dream is that it entails you are in complete control of the changes that are happening at work, at home, and with your life in general.
But it does not necessarily mean that the changes are good–just that you are the captain and can steer the plane any direction you want. It is good to reflect on what these changes mean for you and those around you. Also, if needed, you may want to slow down to give yourself a chance to breathe. It does not hurt to reflect on where you are and where you are going mid-flight. Perhaps you have strayed a bit from your intended path, and you need to recalculate your route.
You dream of eating bad food
Eating bad food can result in severe consequences, so it is a situation we try to avoid. If you dream of eating stale or rotten food, it means that there are some situations in your life that have left you dissatisfied or disappointed. This is not a good dream. Usually, it involves having a misunderstanding with a family member as we usually associate food with our family members whom we dine with on a regular basis.
Perhaps you expected them to make the investment you advised them of but they did not, or they decided on something that you find unacceptable. Either way, the best way to address this is to talk to the concerned person and work out a compromise that leaves both of you happy. Another way to handle this is showing them what you think is a better choice by being a model of it yourself. While it may take longer, they the other party might realize it sooner or later.
You dream of being chased
That feeling of being chased can cause anxiety in many people. A chaser is not even necessary, just the feeling of being preyed on. You want to move your muscles and start running, but sometimes you cannot. This dream is a bit tricky to interpret, but it can mean that you are worried about many issues that are still unresolved— s. Some of these issues you may not even know or realize yet.
You are generally anxious about the events happening around you, and sometimes you get overwhelmed. Maybe you even feel defeated, not knowing where to get the money for the next grocery run or the gas bill payment. All of these could point to a desire to run, and consequently, the feeling of being chased by the problems in your dreams. A solution is to prioritize what you can solve and start working on those.
You dream of an alien abduction
This is perhaps among the scariest dreams you will ever have. Imagine you are in a cornfield when a bright light catches your eyes. For a moment you see those big-eyed aliens looking at you curiously. In an instant, you are inside their ship, being prodded and perhaps stimulated by electricity through probes. Psychologists say that this reflects a mysterious part of yourself that is yet undiscovered.
It could also be a fear of the unknown. Conspiracy theorists, however, will argue that this is an actual memory of you being taken by aliens. Many people in the past have reported seeing bright lights and then having memories of being pricked and prodded by aliens. The more credible interpretation is that you fear something that you don’t don’t fully understand. You should try to identify what it is and work towards understanding why you fear it.
You dream of being stabbed
This typically means that you are undergoing changes in your life that are against your will. It could be because, in your waking life, you’ve you’ve been asked by your boss to do something unethical. It could also be because your parents are asking you to take up engineering instead of the finance degree you wanted to take. On the other hand, it can also signal your fear of betrayal.
Perhaps you are already aware that someone has betrayed you but refuse to acknowledge it. The use of a dagger also indicates sexual immaturity and aggressiveness. Overall, the dream does not bode well for the dreamer, so it is best to sort this out by talking to the concerned people about the betrayal that was done. This will not be easy, of course, as the other person might not readily confess. Be ready, as well, since as hearing the truth can be painful.
You dream of a cross
If you are a Christian and you see a cross in your dreams, then it means that you have a deep belief in the cross. It means that you are worried about something and hope for redemption. You tend to be restless, but you see the cross as your hope and chance to make things right. It can also mean the rebirth or renewal of your faith.
For those who are not Christians, dreaming of a cross can mean the exact opposite. It may mean that danger is about to happen. It could be danger that is either real or perceived. Perhaps forgot to pay your insurance dues for the past few months, leading you to worry. The cross, in the non-church tradition, is usually associated with pain and torture. It can also mean guilt and the resulting fear of punishment, and the death of the soul.
You dream of being amputated
No one wants to lose their limbs. To many, especially athletes, it is their life. So if you dream about being amputated, it means that you fear losing mobility or ability. When you lack a limb, it means that your capabilities are restricted. Even a thumb loss can already result in devastating consequences. If your foot gets amputated, not only can you no longer press the gas on the car, it also means you are not grounded by your goals.
If both feet are missing, it means you feel completely stuck and unable to move forward. This is usually not a good dream, so if this happens, identify what is causing it. Usually, you will already know what is wrong, but if you do not, ask friends and family members for help on what it is that could be holding you back. Once you’ve you’ve identified the problem, work on improving your situation.
You dream of being back in school
This is a good dream. If you see yourself at school, then it means deep inside you feel that you need to learn an essential lesson. What it means is that while you may have challenges at the moment, you are willing to take a step back and see what the circumstances are telling you. It also means you crave knowledge and learning.
It can also mean that you feel inadequate in certain aspects of your life and you have this longing to make things better. Perhaps you did not earn the degree you wanted, or did not get the promotion you were expecting. When reality does not meet the expectations, it can lead to anxiety and possibly other mental health issues, so it is best to study what it is that you feel you lack to build your self-worth and confidence.
You Dream that you are intimate with a coworker
Let’s Let’s admit that we usually like people at work, whether we tell them or not, or act on it or not. Of course, if you are married, it is forbidden to act on those desires. However, you may dream that you are intimate with that particular workmate. Does this mean that you are cheating and not being faithful? Maybe. But this is not necessarily the case.
It could mean that your coworker has admirable qualities that you want to emulate. Perhaps they are a skilled financial advisor apart from being good at work. Another possible meaning is that you have leadership qualities that you want to develop. So it does not necessarily mean that you have a desire to pursue a relationship with them. Rather, it could mean that you have a strong admiration for them and wanted to learn from them or just be best friends with them.
You Dream that you are in a deep forest
Being in a deep forest can be quite an exhilarating experience. It can be freeing because you are away from civilization, away from electricity and other kinds of modern distractions. It can also be scary as dangers lurk about. If you dream that you are in a deep forest, it symbolizes that you are beginning to understand the potential for growth of your personality.
We all have the potential for certain things, but there are various reasons why we are not able to tap into those potentials. One, we are not aware of them. Second, we may be aware of them but remain hindered by money or opportunity. If you dream of this, take the time to talk to other people who may be able to see what you can do. While we are often ignorant about our own capabilities, good friends and family members can spot them.
You dream of various clothing
Clothing is a basic need, and hence it is something that we wear on a daily basis. But it can also symbolize what we want to project to the world. If you keep wearing clothes in different colors, it usually means that you are struggling with your personality and cannot make a decision on what to tell the world, or how you want to be seen by them.
This same interpretation holds true if you dream about wearing clothes of different colors. This can mean you are confused of about what your identity or purpose is in this world. If you wear the same clothes, however, it can be said that you are comfortable in who you are and how you are seen by the world. To a degree, you have accepted who you are, so what you are wearing is you, without deceiving yourself and others.
You dream you are in an empty room
Being in an empty room can evoke feelings of claustrophobia. But this is actually a positive dream. Psychologists have said that dreaming of an empty room usually means you’re you’re tapping into your hidden talents. You may not realize that you have these talents just yet–maybe you can be excellent at roof repairs! It can also represent a part of your life where nothing is happening.
If, for example, the room was not empty at first and then suddenly became empty, followed by feelings of emptiness. It can be positive or negative, depending on the situation you are in. Whatever it is, try to analyze what else you can do to tap into your hidden potential. Think of it this way, the more you explore your hidden talents, the more doors will open for you. The more opportunities there are, the better your chances of being successful.
You dream that you are a superhero
Suddenly you have superpowers and superstrength. All of us dream, at one point or another, about being real-life superheroes for various reasons. Maybe we want to save the world. If you dream that you are a superhero, it can mean that you feel trapped in a situation. So your latent desire to get out of the situation manifests in a dream.
Maybe you can no longer pay the mortgage. Or perhaps you did not get the promotion you wanted. Either way, while it may seem hopeless, the dream actually indicates that you are on the right track and dealing with it correctly. It means that you are powerful and capable. So use whatever you have to get out of the seemingly desperate situation you are in. Getting help is also not a bad thing at this point. Super heroes, after all, have friends, too, who help them.
You dream of monsters or demons
We all have a picture of what a demon or a monster looks like. But this is something that does not exist in the physical world. So, if you dream of demons or monsters, it is likely a result of watching too many horror films. The brain is trying to put meaning behind the scenes you see on film and interprets them for you.
We usually associate demons with evil, and so when we see them in our dreams chasing us, we become afraid, and we look for some form of insurance or protection against these monsters. This could also reflect what we are scared of in our waking life. There might be hidden demons that you are trying to hide that only surfaces when you are asleep. Reflect on what these hidden fears are and start working on them one by one.
You dream that you are driving an out-of-control-car
The car is a symbolism of your life. When you step on the gas and maneuver the steering wheel, it represents how you fuel yourself to become a better person. If you dream of driving a car that is out of control, it could be pointing to an equally chaotic waking life. You may feel that you no longer are the master of your life, and others are.
You want to take the wheel but for some reason, you cannot. In cases like these, psychologists suggest relaxing your grip and letting things be for a while. Nature finds a way to fix things, anyway, as there is usually balance in the universe. Then when you have a better view of the situation, you can try to wrestle control again. Sometimes a little bit of introspection and letting go can help you a lot.
You dream that you were late
Being late represents losing an opportunity. Maybe you’ve you’ve had a dream where you needed to go to a meeting to discuss options to refinance your home loans, and then you see yourself arriving late. It could mean that there were many opportunities that passed you by that you didn’t didn’t consciously realize.
You realize then that you may not have enough time to accomplish many of your goals. Hesitation is usually a factor here. So when making decisions, be sure to act right away. As some have said, you need to be prepared for when luck strikes. After all, luck means being ready at the right time. So while the dream might be negative, it can still become positive if you are able to turn the situation around. To ensure you are ready, make sure you have the necessary skills, learning, and mindset to pounce on an opportunity.
You dream of a building or a house
We all want the perfect home that is why we expend effort to find the perfect house that doesn’t doesn’t require roof repair right after we move in. But a building or a home in a dream can mean that you are looking for some sense of security. Houses represent warmth and shelter. A sturdy home means that it can withstand any storm that passes.
If there is a subconscious desire to own a home, it may be because, in our waking time, we feel insecure about many things. Meanwhile, if you dream that you are in someone else’s else’s house, it can represent the desire to spend more time with that person. You might be spending less time with a loved one, so you are prompted in a dream. It can also mean a simple desire to own a home and move, a signal of a new beginning for you.
You dream that your car is missing
You might have the best home security system but dream that you see your car missing from the garage. What could it mean? Does that mean we need to upgrade the system? Not necessarily. The vehicle represents something important in your life. It is, after all, a mode of transportation that lets us move from one point to another.
Missing and looking for a car could mean that you have lost the drive to move forward. It could mean a lack of motivation or a lack of purpose. This is not the end, though. You may have lost the energy, but it does not mean you are giving up. You are still looking for a way to continue. The desire is still there, ; you just have to tap themit. Ask yourself what it is that you need motivation for and work towards achieving small wins to help you get started.
You dream that you are friends with a wild animal
Encountering an animal in the wild, especially bears, can be frightening. Most of the time, we would freeze and not do anything. If in your dreams, however, you are able to become friends with one, it can symbolize that you have a better grasp of your intuitive nature. Animals are typically symbols of your natural impulses and unconscious needs.
Wild animals can also represent deep-seated primal needs and urges, where taming them can mean that you are in control of your emotions and urges. We may not understand what our instinct means, but to some degree, they help us in situations when rational thought does not. Hence, it is always a good idea to be in touch with our more “”wild” ” side. Do not be afraid to explore because in knowing the different facets of our personality, we are able to dig deeper into ourselves.
You dream of lots of money
You dream of money, lots of them, enough to pay your student loans many times over. But is this a positive or a negative dream? It can be either. Many of us want a life of wealth because we associate money with pleasure. Dreaming about money is your subconscious telling you that you have a deep desire to have more money. It can also mean that you desire power, as power is another thing everyone craves.
We have to remember though that not everything is about money or power. We may have theose two highly sought-after things,, but it’s possible to still live a life full of discontent. On the positive side, the money in your dreams can also symbolize the non-monetary riches you already have, such as friends, coworkers or family members. Either way, you can try to determine what it means depending on the situation you are in now.
You dream that you are in the attic
Attics are usually associated with childhood and finding trash and treasure. It also serves as a hiding place for kids who had nowhere to run. So if you dream that you are in an attic, it can mean that you are trying to connect to your sense of self. Rooms usually symbolize different aspects of yourself, and the attic, being at the top of the house, pertains to your memories or intellect.
If the attic is dirty, it can mean you have not visited it in a while–a call to action on your part. You must reflect and decide what else you can work on to improve yourself. Perhaps getting that finance degree you had been putting off will do the trick. What is important is we find out what it is we want— and self-reflection is usually a good method of figuring things out.
You dream of a burning house or building
Fire represents change and rebirth. Hence, if you dream of a fire, be it consuming a building or a house, it can symbolize a rebirth. Perhaps, in your waking life, there are changes that are going to happen or are already happening. You have to realize that in order for change to happen, there must be uncomfortable changes, which can include pain and the total elimination of old ways.
Perhaps you are struggling with money loans, so the only way is to get rid of your bad financial habits and replace them with those that allow you to save money. You might have to become creative to achieve these goals. You are probably afraid to go into business, but if this can help financially then go for it. Taking a calculated risk is not a bad thing as it can spur you into something more productive and helpful.
You dream of falling or tumbling
This is similar to the hypnic jerk that you feel when falling asleep. When you dream of falling, you feel that you have no control of your surroundings and are free-falling. This is among the most common dreams we experience because we are hardwired to avoid danger. This dream is very common, but every time you dream of whereabouts, you will be frightened.
Hence, you falling in a dream can be likened to the brain doing a test run so that when you actually fall, you will know how to react. It can also mean that you lack leadership qualities in life and, hence, will fail because of a lack of guidance. This does not have to be the case, however, as you can develop yourself further and work towards improving yourself, either through online classes or face to face ones.
You dream that you have lost your shoes
Your shoes represent many things, but it can mean a position on a particular topic or argument. Dreaming of a lost pair of shoes means that you have difficulty making a stand on a specific issue. Your values may be intact, but you are too considerate of the feelings of other people that you find it challenging to take a side and hurt the one who took the counter position.
It can be likened to investment planning where the options are too many, and selecting one is tricky. What you can do is try to determine whether your stand aligns with your values— t. That means figuring out what values beliefs you have in the first place. Then convey that argument in the most respectful way to the other side. We have no control over how they will react, but we still need to make a stand.
You dream of being addicted
Being addicted to illicit drugs, be it while awake or in a dream is not good. It means that you are trying to escape a situation you find yourself in and are having difficulty doing so. You may feel varying degrees of emotion. You need to determine the best course of action. While we may not have control over many things, we need to do our best with what we can control.
Once we start winning small battles, we can take care of bigger ones. Dreaming of drugs also means that you have unfulfilled dreams and desires. If these desires are legal, it is best to work towards achieving them. Seize the chance when you have them, or create opportunities through hard work as needed. If they are illegal or immoral, then come to terms that they are not achievable.
You Dream of Killing People
If you dream that you are killing people, it is usually a negative dream. It could be a result of watching too many violent films or playing violent video games. If this is the case, it is best to minimize watching those kinds of movies or videos. If this dream is regular, it can mean that you are harboring violent thoughts or are an aggressive person.
That This aggressiveness aggression can stem from something that happened in childhood. There might be unresolved issues and there might be something wrong in your life that needs to be resolved. You may not get along well with other people, so it is best to work on developing interpersonal skills. Think of this as an investment for yourself as working well with others can also benefit you. Asking for help from a professional is also not a bad idea at this point.
You dream of looking for someone
Losing someone or missing someone can be painful. If you find that you are searching for someone in your dream, it can mean that you are trying to reconnect with a part of yourself that you have not been in touch with. Perhaps you have given up on a dream or on something that you planned for. Maybe you wanted to buy a big home, but found the mortgage prohibitive.
It does not mean you cannot reclaim those dreams, though, as you always can. It can also mean that you lack social skills to deal with complex issues. It is best to try and determine what is causing this and work towards improving your social skills. It is difficult, but it can be done. If you have lost touch with an aspect of yourself, get other people to help you recognize that lost aspect.
You Dream that you are invisible
Many probably want to have superpowers, like being invisible. So if in your dreams you suddenly have that power, that should make you celebrate, right? Well, not necessarily. Dreaming that you are invisible can mean that you feel unappreciated at home or at work. This is a common feeling, but if it has already encroached in your subconscious, it means that there are some deep-seated emotions that you need to address.
Usually, it means you lack confidence in your capabilities. It is easy to blame others for not seeing your efforts. It is also easy to blame yourself. But instead of blaming, focus instead on working smarter and promoting your work, giving yourself a higher degree of chance to be recognized. After all, you need to be proud of the accomplishments you have. Start small and achieve bigger things in life.
You dream that you are naked in public
Being shamed in public can be traumatizing. If you dream that you are naked in public, perhaps there is nothing more embarrassing. Psychologists say that if you are afraid of being embarrassed or ashamed in any way, then you might have this dream. It can also relate to a recent event where you were shamed or felt that you were shamed. Perhaps you forgot to turn off the gas before logging out for the day.
Sometimes, bosses would reprimand their staff in public shamelessly. People also tend to view themselves by how others see them—seeking other people’s people’s approval. That is why it is important that we know ourselves and that we should not be affected by how others perceive us. Take note of how many times you’ve you’ve dreamed about this. If it becomes a pattern, you will need to work on worrying less.
You dream that you are walking bare feet
Dreaming that you are walking barefooted indicates vulnerability. It can mean that the brain is warning you to be more careful of the steps you are taking in life. Psychologists say that uncertainties in how you manage your life can give life to these dreams. Perhaps you made the wrong decision with your love life. No one wants to be uncertain about things.
Try to be grounded and credit yourself for the good things you have done as well. If you are unsure of the next step, what you can do is retrace where you think you might have made a mistake and correct it. The earlier you recognize this misstep, the easier it is to correct. It is not bad to admit your mistakes and make amends with those you’ve you’ve harmed. If any, it will only make you feel better.
You dream that your children are in danger
Children can represent ideas in your dreams. So if you see a child or your child is in danger in your dream, it can mean that you have a very good idea you are keeping to yourself that you are trying to develop. It might be the next breakthrough that everyone has been wanting to hear about. These ideas might not necessarily be in danger but it can only be because you have a deep appreciation for the ideas and you want to protect them.
If you feel that you cannot achieve the ideas on your own, you can always ask for help from other people. Brainstorming with like-minded individuals can help. Having a friend that you can bounce ideas off with is also an good idea you should consider. It is not bad to share our dreams with those we trust. A certain degree of help from others can jumpstart your plans, after all.
You dream of winning the lottery
Winning the lottery is probably everyone’s everyone’s wishful thinking at one point. We want to be rich quickly, and sometimes we give in to scams that drain us of our investment money. If we see ourselves winning the lottery in a dream, it can mean that we now realize our self-value–that we are rich inside. It relates more to spiritual wealth rather than acquiring physical wealth.
It means that you have the potential, and you can do more by exploring those skills that have not been used for a long time. Pursue your dreams and become a better version of yourself. It can also mean that you have a financial issue you are dealing with, and you see that problem ending. If not, then find ways to eradicate the financial issue. Start by eliminating debt and then building an emergency fund that could last you six months at least.
You dream that you cannot find your way home
Being lost is a frightening experience. You do not know where to start looking to find your way home. If this happens in your dream, then it can symbolize that you have difficulties in finding out who you are. The dream stands as a reminder that you should make others see your true self. You have to be honest about yourself and let others see yourself for what you are.
A dream like this can also mean that you are trying to find some stability in your life. A home, with a good home security system, is a stable house, which means that there are some uncertainties in your life right now. Find out what is making you feel lost and address that issue. Look at your immediate surroundings first—your family,, loved ones, friends—and see if there is something that needs to be corrected or an issue that needs to be discussed.
You dream of meeting someone famous
Imagine meeting Lebron James in person and having a one-on-one session with him. We all want to meet our idols. This can mean, however, that you are longing for recognition. You might be envious of the people around you and their accomplishments. A friend might be making good use of her finance degree and making money. You probably feel left out and is are feeling some envy.
But remember that envy will not get you anywhere. Having this dream from time to time is fine, but if you get it quite often, you will have to analyze what is causing this because it more than likely means you feel envy. If envy is the cause, then try not to be envious and work on improving yourself. Find out what skills you are great at. After all, we have our unique capabilities and skills.
You dream of being in love
The feeling of being in love is something we all want to have. There is nothing much more fulfilling than the feeling of being appreciated and loved. If you dream that you are falling in love, it can mean that you lack intimacy and passion. You are longing for love and cannot seem to find it. It might have been triggered by the fact that you are in love with someone in your waking life.
Perhaps he is the perfect person who is not only capable of roof repairs but is also able to give you time and attention. The level of intimacy you have for someone in your dream symbolizes the depth of the love you have for them in real life— s. So when awake, make sure that the person feels that level of love you wanted to show them. Do not hold back.
You dream of flying
If you dream that you are flying, it means that you experienced a recent liberating experience. Perhaps you were able to free yourself from the shackles holding you back at work. There might be many circumstances that are weighing you down but you’ve you’ve been able to find a way to go beyond them. It is not usually because of luck but because of the degree of rigorous effort to get yourself out.
Flying in the air means that you are looking from a different perspective in life. Make sure about that new perspective to achieve something more meaningful. Look at the bigger perspective and see what else you can do. If there is anxiety in the air, however, it can mean that you are looking for some stability, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Finding your footing is critical when there are uncertainties in life.
You dream that you are trapped in the kitchen
Being trapped is very scary. You would not want to be in a room all alone, especially if you are claustrophobic. If you dream that you are in a kitchen, it means that you are being stifled in your ability to nurture others. The kitchen is the area where we prepare food, a source of nourishment. It can be that you feel incapacitated to take care of yourself and others.
If you feel cramped in the kitchen, it can signify that you are not that creative in dealing with things. It usually means that you usually look out for others while forgetting yourself. This is bad, as you need nurturing too. Try to find a way to take care of yourself, too. Note that taking care of yourself is insurance for your own future. Find a balance between caring for others and yourself.
You dream of being cheated on
This is not the best dream because no one wants to be cheated on whether in real life or in a dream. If this shows up in your dreams, you will probably end up feeling sad and down. This The vision can also make you suspicious of your partner. Usually, the one being cheated on is labeled as insufficient. If you were ever cheated on before, you’ll you’d know the feeling.
It does not mean that you are doubtful of your partner. It simply recognizes your fear of being left behind. These are valid feelings, of course. You have to give yourself some credit and not just finding fault. Just be cautious and be careful. It can also symbolize your feelings of inferiority. How you see yourself is critical to your sense of self so never downplay your achievements and wear them with pride.
You dream that you missed a taxi or plane
The plane departed without you. You can see the tail drifting off the roofing of many houses near the airport. You hold a ticket that is no longer valid. If in your dreams you missed a taxi or a plane, it means that you are being bogged down by your many commitments. It is stress that manifested in a dream because you cannot handle multitasking with all the projects on your plate.
Take the time to relax and forget about payday loans for the time being and focus on relaxing the mind first. Leave unnecessary baggage behind and think of your priorities. If you are able to identify which matters to you most and which will help you with your goals, then you can work on those first. Listen to your body and mind so that you will not only achieve your goals but also remain healthy.
You dream you are in a war
We have not experienced real war first-hand–at least those who belong to this generation. We should consider ourselves lucky. So if you dream of being in a war, it is mostly because you are encountering stress in your life. The tension growing inside you can be overburdening you. It can also mean that there are opposing needs in your life that you find hard to reconcile.
Another possible meaning is that you have fear and that fear can lead to loss of control. The degree of fear will manifest in how gruesome the war can be and the people in it. If you know the people around you, it can mean that you fear losing these people and would fight for them at any time. If the battle is intense, it can signify how fearful you are of losing the people around you.
You dream of fulfilling your most secret desire
We all have a secret personal desire. If you dream that you were able to fulfill that desire, it means what you want is real. If the desire is legitimate and achievable like having lots of investment money, you can always go for it. If, however, it is an illegal or immoral act, you have to come to terms that you should not fulfill it at any cost.
For example, if you dream of robbing a bank or defacing a wall, which is clearly not allowed, the brain is probably warning you to back off. Our desires will always be there, but you have the ability to hold them back and control them. On the other hand, your brain might just be giving you a treat by letting you experience the desire, even if you won’t won’t be attempting it in your waking life. The brain can work in mysterious ways.
You dream of calling the wrong number
It is frustrating to call the wrong number. If you see yourself dialing the wrong number in a dream, your brain is signaling that you are not able to connect with someone well. You might be making an attempt, but it is simply not working. Calling someone is a very logical way of talking to someone to sort out problems.
It means that if there is a breakdown in communication in your dream, things might not be not as good in your waking life. Consider this a warning from the brain. Of course, no one wants a breakdown in communication, lest of all with someone we deeply care about. Identify this person you are having problems with and re-establish a connection with him or her. We are, after all, social beings. Give yourself credit for doing the best you can.
You dream of going blind
Our eyesight is one of our superpowers. Quite literally, it is not easy to go about your waking life without you seeing the things around you. It will seem you are in an endless dream if you see that you are blind, quite ironically, in your dream. Then it means that there is an aspect of our life we are overlooking deliberately or a blindspot that is out of our control.
To some degree, this is a warning from your brain that you have to figure out what you are missing. Get spiritual guidance if need be. This may also mean that there is a sudden change in your finances, from being wealthy to being poor. In cases like these, work with what you have. Personal blind spots are hard to determine, so seek the help of another person who can give you more insights.
You dream you are being chased by the police or authority
If you did something illegal, it is natural to feel guilty and be afraid that the authorities are going after you. If you dream that the police are chasing you and you are pressing the gas pedal hard to get away from them, it can mean that you have some worries about your free will and obligations. There might be situations in your waking life where your options are limited.
You may blame other people for these limitations, but in the end, your brain is warning you that you have to be responsible for your actions. In the end, the more self-disciplined you are, the more freedom you will get. Freedom, after all, is not a free pass to do anything we can. It has to be exercised with the appropriate level of discipline, too. Rules exist for a reason, and that is to maintain order in the society.
You dream you are running but cannot move
This dream is a common one, and it is about controlling various aspects of your waking life. If you dream that you are not able to move, it means that you feel no matter how much you try, nothing changes. The reason why we have this dream often is that it is rare that people change. We want to change the world, but we do not usually want change to begin with ourselves.
But if we think of it, putting in the time investment can change people. It is challenging to change your ways, but if you set specific goals, work towards a timeline, and get help from those who can give you assistance, then it can be possible. Also, it can indicate a lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem, so make sure you try to build them up. Reflect on what you can do best, and then start from there.
You dream of playing a board game
When we play board games, time flies fast. We usually enjoy progressing in a board game in a non-violent manner. If you dream of this, it means you prefer a more civilized approach to being competitive. It can mean that you have a competitive nature, but are not that aggressive. Psychologists say that if this is the case, you tend to avoid confrontations and use a more rules-based approach to life.
If you are bored while playing a board game, it can mean that you have minor setbacks in your waking life. Perhaps the plumbing services team did not show up, and you are stuck with faucet issues over the weekend. Simple issues should be fixed right away, while complex ones can be taken piece by piece. Know that any setback is temporary so long as you work towards resolving the problem quickly.
You dream of chewing glass
How we communicate with others is a reflection of our personality. Sometimes, we can be sharp with our words, and our brains warn us of this in a dream. Chewing glass in a dream is a manifestation of how you communicate with people around you. Try to limit your sharp jokes and be more gentle with words.
This does not mean that you should not be honest anymore, just that you need to be more tamed when expressing your view. When you are unsure of how you are behaving, think of the other person as a prospective client who you’re you’re selling homeowners insurance to. For sure, you will use more positive and encouraging words, as opposed to those that can hurt or annoy them. Use a more soothing and calmer tone as well. Most importantly, be authentic when dealing with other people.
You dream of lots of water (not necessarily drowning)
Water symbolizes your emotions. If you dream of a lot of water, it can mean that you are overwhelmed and filled with emotion in your waking life. The flow of water in your dream can indicate if there are problems. The more turbulent the flow, the more you feel out of control. It could mean that whatever problem you have when awake is something that is beyond your skills or capabilities.
If the water is still or flowing smoothly, then it means you feel calm and in control of your emotions. Give yourself credit for taking charge and being able to recognize a problem as they arise. If you want to establish more control of your feelings, identify which ones cause you to struggle more. Find out why you find it hard to manage such emotion and get someone who you know is good at that particular emotion.
You dream that a bomb detonated
It is a dreadful dream because you can almost always see destruction. A bomb going off, whether in a dream or in real life, is never a pleasant experience. But, in a dream, this can mean something positive. The brain is telling you that you need to be ready for a significant change. A bomb is a cataclysmic event, and when it goes off, it changes everything. Electricity, water, and natural resources are going to be wiped out.
Life could change in a second. In your dream, you can focus on how the bomb has eliminated the target. If it is precise, then you can look forward to a more positive change in your life. If it is not precise, theny it means you have more work to do. Significant changes are not easy, so the brain is also telling you to seek help if necessary so that you do not have to go through the changes alone.
You dream of climbing uphill
This dream can be literal. If you are climbing up a hill, you use all available muscle power you have. You also need all the calories you can get to help you climb. If in a dream, you see yourself climbing a steep hill, it can mean that you are working on a particularly challenging project that has some significant consequences on your life. This means that if you fail, you can end up falling hard, but if you succeed, you will find yourself in a better position.
You might be studying for a law degree, and you are almost ready to become a lawyer–but there are still stumbling blocks. What you can do is to keep moving, no matter how slow. A step in the right direction is always a step towards your goal. Remember your goals and how hard you fought to get to the first step. It aAlso helps to take a look at where you are now, compared to back then.
You dream of a movie reenactment
Many would say that dreams have meaning. To a degree, they all have sense. But sometimes, they are just that, dreams and nothing else. People who binge-watch Korean TV series or crime TV series would usually end up dreaming that they are in the movie or the film they had been watching. This is the brain merely rewinding the good scenes you have already watched. Our brain usually has weird ways of rewarding us.
It can be scary, though, if the movies that are reenacted are horror or slash films. But think of it, what if you suddenly dream of being Harry Potter, right? It can be a rather fun experience being a wizard, even in our dreams! So if this ever happens to you, try not to stress over what it means and just sit back, sleep, and relax. You will probably wake up refreshed and ready to face the day.
You dream of taking an exam unprepared
Showing up for an exam without having reviewed the lessons required is enough to make anyone stressed out. If you dream that you have an exam only to realize that you are not prepared, it means that your brain is trying to examine or assess the decisions you have been making in your waking life. This can mean you have self-doubt about the decisions you’ve you’ve recently made or are questioning how well you are doing in life.
Maybe you saw a friend who is now well-to-do, with student loans all paid up, while you’re you’re still struggling financially. This should not hold you down, however. Remember that everyone moves at his own pace. If we measure our accomplishments against others, we will only end up envious. Strive to improve a little bit daily. The only competition you should have is yourself.
You dream of an abandoned and derelict house
Rooms and houses represent ourselves and how we view our identity. A particular room, for instance, symbolizes a specific aspect of our life or personality. If you see a derelict or abandoned house in your dream, it can mean that you have some issues related to self-confidence and self-esteem. This can be because, in your waking life, someone has made you feel insecure. An event might have precipitated this.
This is why your brain is trying to redirect you to your sense of self. If the house appears solid and not totally destroyed, then it can mean that you feel more secure about yourself. The dream suggests that you have to appreciate your skills and abilities. It is easy to look at things we lack, but there might be a lot of things you can do, including roof repair if you really put your heart to it.
You experience sleep paralysis
This is the most frightening of all dreams based on a survey of many people. This is not technically a dream, but your brain is in between waking and sleeping, giving it a surreal sense. You feel that there is a ton of weight crushing against your chest. Even if you try to shout or move an inch, you feel that you cannot. You are somehow conscious of what goes on around you.
You can hear people talking and moving about. Difficult as it may seem, the best way to deal with sleep paralysis is relaxing the mind. Isolated cases of sleep paralysis are usually no cause for concern, but if it happens periodically, the best course of action is to seek help from a doctor. Check with the insurance companies, but mostly this kind of consultation should be covered.
You dream that you are unable to find a toilet
That feeling of an exploding bladder is tormenting. If you find yourself dreaming that you need to use the bathroom but can’t can’t find one, this might indicate that you are ignoring your own needs in favor of the needs of others. A toilet symbolizes a facility where we can safely and cleanly get rid of our body’s body’s wastes, and in a dream, this can mean that your brain is telling you to address your own needs first.
Some may say it is but natural, but the tendency for many is to consider others first. It is, of course, right to help others, but not to the degree where you’re you’re sacrificing yourself. Figure out what it is that you are excessively giving out and then try to limit it. It may not work well at first as you will feel uncomfortable, but it is worth a try.
You dream you are in a dark basement
Knowing yourself is crucial if you want to be happy and content with your life. We all have our aspirations, with some of us dreaming of becoming a lawyer or a doctor. But we can only set clear goals if we are in touch with ourselves. If you have frequent dreams of being in a dark basement, it means that you are starting to become aware of what your core behavior and values are.
The basement symbolizes the deepest and darkest desired desires we have—the ones we typically do not want others to see. The brain is inviting you to do more deep introspection to explore the things you do not know about yourself further. So even if the dream appears scary because of the dark basement, it can actually be a way towards self-realization. If you know yourself well, it is easier to achieve your goals.
You dream of a snake
Snakes are beautiful creatures. They prey on rats and other small pests so that their numbers remain checked. But in a dream, it can mean that you are excessively worried that someone is one being untruthful to you. Maybe you suspect that someone had been looking at your credit reports at home without your express permission. Or maybe you think your partner is cheating.
Historically, snakes have been associated with deceit and dishonesty, and this is hardwired in our brains. They also carry venom, so we are afraid that we can get hurt. In turn, so we are become afraid of facing them. What we can do is confront the person we are suspecting and handle the situation with tact. If you are not comfortable doing direct confrontation, you can ask for a mediator to help so that it won’t won’t be difficult for either party.
You dream of being accused of a crime
This is another guilt dream. Your brain is alerting you to the guilt you feel inside. Perhaps you made a mistake or committed a less serious crime, and your conscience is trying to tell you that something is wrong. This is a good dream, however, because it also signifies that you still have a conscience and that you are capable of guilt.
Others who are hardcore criminals are not expected to have this kind of dreams. During your waking time, what you can do is assess the gravity of the offense you committed. Did you hurt someone? Did you purposely lie? If yes, you can admit to the fault and give yourself credit for coming out truthfully. Be ready to face the consequences of your actions. If we own up to our mistakes, for sure, we’ll we’ll end up feeling better.
You dream of being defeated by a vermin
Vermins are little pests that can wreak havoc to the crops that farmers have worked on for the entire year. Being defeated by one in a dream can signify that you have difficulties and fears that are affecting you in your waking life. These fears might not be that significant but are enough to make you worry or doubt your capabilities and decision-making skills.
What you can do is not to let the small hurdles get in the way. Sometimes, you need to step back and let things happen. There are things that are beyond our control. Those that you can, of course, make the decision to address them. Think of problems as investments for the future. You will become better at handling them with practice. Find what actions work against the vermin of your waking life and start eliminating these so so-called “”pests”..”
You dream of being accused of a crime
This is another of those guilt dreams. If in your sleeping time, you get accused of committing crime or fraud, perhaps one that involved insurance fraud, then it means you’re you’re hiding something in your waking life. It may be something serious or something not serious, but you feel a great deal of remorse over it. The crime we do in dreams is usually a representation of the deliberate choices we make while awake.
Psychologists say that the more serious the crime in your dream, the bigger the guilt you feel. Ease some of the burdens by sharing it with a friend, or turning yourself in, if it is a real crime. Being responsible is also part of being a part of this society. While it is easier to tuck away the guilt in exchange of for a seemingly better life, the guilt could eventually catch up with you.
You dream of a leaky roof
If this happens in your real life, then a roof repair is in order. But if you dream that your roof is leaking, it means that you need to toughen up. The roof is a symbol of security, much like the walls of a house. If the roof has damage, this represents the amount of damage that your psychological or spiritual self has suffered. We all have our emotional vulnerabilities. Sometimes, those emotional holes are touched, and we become miserable.
It should not be a cause of concern, though, as the brain is warning you of a possible breakdown, which you must solve on your own. A high emotional quotient cannot be achieved overnight. It needs daily and consistent effort to be in touch with one’s one’s emotion, and it is an excellent day to start today! Asking help, though, if things go out of hand is not so bad, and even suggested.
You dream of showering
Being clean daily is achieved by good grooming and of course, taking a shower. This act is the embodiment of the mind’s mind’s desire to be clean. If you dream about taking showers, it can mean that, to some degree, you want to clean or sanitize yourself. Maybe there was something you did that made you feel unclean.
There may also be a sticky situation you are in that you want to avoid. If this happens often, it can mean that you will need serious introspection on what it is that happened. Try to solve the situation. On the flip side, it can also be an indication that you are fine and healthy. Taking a shower is part of daily life; , a routine, even. and f Following a schedule of events meant that nothing has had disrupted things around you. This is one of those nuanced dreams, where you have to understand the situation to determine what the definite meaning is.
You dream of opening new rooms or spaces
Rooms represent various aspects of your life. If you dream that you are opening a new door or space, it can mean that you are trying to explore the different areas of your identity. You may have encountered something that inspired you to want to discover your true potential. Maybe you are skilled at selling insurance or products online. Perhaps you are a good coach. The possibilities are endless.
It can also mean that you are looking for something that is missing in your personality. Sometimes tapping into your innermost desires can uncover a lot of things. By going through the various rooms, you hope to be able to find out what that missing piece is. What you can do is make sure that you reflect on what you do best and what your weaknesses are so that you will know yourself better.
You dream of being lost in a shop or a mall
As it is, being lost is scary. If you dream that you are lost in a mall or a shop, it can trigger a lot of anxiety. It means, however, that you doubt your own value. You feel insecure in your waking life that your subconscious is manifesting it in a dream. The shelves and the individual stores represent those possible insecurities in life.
But, it is also telling you that inside those shops are valuable materials, and if you choose to explore them, you’ll you’ll see how much you are valued as a person. It would help if you gave yourself credit for the good things you have done while taking responsibility for the wrong decisions. Identify what those struggles are, be it at work or home. Just like finding treasure in the shops or malls, you can also find treasure in the things that you discover about yourself.
You dream that you can talk to animals
We can always talk to animals. We do that to our dogs or cats. But if they talk back, should we be worried? In your dreams, however, being able to talk to animals is an indication that you have the ability to connect with nature easily. Many find that difficult to do, especially now that we mostly live in cities. But perhaps you are an environmentalist, who opposes the use of fossil fuel to produce gas.
Or you love animals and trees. This can also be a call from your brain to reconnect with nature. Take a trip to the beach. Jog or hike up a mountain. Do something that will ease your burdens, and let nature work its magic on you. This can also mean you are stressed beyond limits and would want to reconnect with your roots to release some of the stress.
You dream of a bridge
A bridge symbolizes the link between your past and the future. If you dream of a bridge, or that you are at the edge of a bridge, then it can signal a turning point in your life. Perhaps there is a change that you are still reluctant to accept. It may be a positive or a negative change in your life.
It can also mean that you are losing touch of the past, and your brain is trying to tell you to learn from your mistakes before you leap into the future. Think of past mistakes. Maybe you made a bad financial decision resulting in a hit on your credit report. Deal with those mistakes and get yourself ready for the next chapter of your life. Be ready to cross the bridge by making sure you have come to terms with any past issuess.
You dream that you are in a mysterious corridor
If we remember the scene from Harry Potter where Harry dreams of a corridor leading to the Department of Mysteries, then we might be able to relate to this. What lies behind the corridor intrigues us, and we want to open it. It can signify big changes in our waking life that we are excited or fearful about. Prepare yourself for those changes. Decide to be better always.
The door at the end of the corridor can also mean a path for you to appreciate yourself even more. Congratulate yourself on making that mortgage payment or for finishing that project at work. If we do not respect our own work, we cannot expect others to do the same. Just like we do not know what lies ahead of the corridor, we do not know what may happen to us, but we can always prepare for every possibility.
You dream that you were able to travel in time
We all have regrets. Perhaps you did not attain the finance degree your mother wanted, or you chose to work instead of setting up a business. Whatever it is, if these issues remain unacknowledged, it will remain in our subconscious and appear in our dreams. It can manifest as you travel in time. We cannot go back, of course, but our brain is tickling us with the idea that “”what if” ” we can change things? What if I made the decision to do things my way?
Of course, we can only face the consequences now and then decide moving forward. We have to learn to accept the bad decisions we made in the past. What you can do is to treat today as the past, knowing that every decision you make now will either be bad or good for your future. Do not be stumped, though. S, seize every chance, and make the most out of every opportunity.
You dream of a candle
Candles are usually associated with death and dying, as this was used to light up funerals in the past. But in your dreams, it can mean the exact opposite–life. Yes, it means that you can bring ideas to life through that creative spark. When we light a candle, we take part in creating and enhancing fire, a very versatile tool that can be used to cook or transform metals.
It can mean that you are excited about a particular change in your life. Perhaps you will soon start an online class on how to become a better manager, or will participate in a cooking class. Whatever it is, you need to keep the candle lit by being enthusiastic because a candle that’s that’s been snuffed can mean the end. Of course, you can always reignite a candle—, and in real life, you can restart your dreams too!
You dream of a malfunctioning machine
If the printer in the office does not work, you would be frustrated too. Printers are pretty standard in any office, so if something ordinary malfunctions in a dream, then it means that in your waking life, things are also breaking down. It can be the breakdown in communication with someone you love and depend on. Maybe there was disagreement over who refills the car’s car’s gas, or who takes the baby to daycare.
It can also be because of a misunderstanding at work between you and a coworker or your boss. But whatever it is, you will need to work out a solution. Any breakdown in communication can be solved anyway. All it takes is an effort from both parties to start talking and addressing the situation. If things are still not patched up, bringing in other people to help can perhaps make the deal.
You dream of zombies
A zombie apocalypse is the last thing anyone wants, especially with the pandemic still unsolved. If you dream of zombies, it means that your past is hunting you. Zombies are representations of the dead coming back to life and being worried about past mistakes, or skeletons in the closet. Being haunted by zombies in your dreams represents your past catching up on you. You may have unresolved conflicts that you need to solve.
Perhaps you made use of your investment money for something else that has resulted in you being in a financial fix. Or it can represent the anxieties you have in life. Try to figure out what is keeping you agitated. Whatever the cause is, you have to reflect on it and try to figure out what can be done to come to terms with any mistakes you have made in the past.
You dream of a closet or cabinet
Our secret stash of magazines or chocolates is usually hidden in our closets in the room. If you dream of exploring closets or cabinets, it can mean that you are hiding something or are afraid of something. If your closet is full of items, it can mean that you are overwhelmed by many things. This is the brain’s brain’s way of warning you to focus on one thing at a time.
It can also represent the things that you are trying to avoid. Note that avoidance may make you forget the problems temporarily, but it will not solve the problem entirely. You have to work at decluttering your mind and figuring out what it is that needs attention. You have to give yourself credit for the good things you have done right. At the same time, you have to take responsibility for the wrong decisions made, in order, to balance things out.
You dream of meeting an old acquaintance
Meeting with friends is good for our mental health. They give us the happiness that no one else can. They make us feel appreciated. If you dream that you are meeting an old friend, it means that you are getting in touch with a part of yourself that you have lost touch with.
The brain is telling you to remember that quality or personality trait you have forgotten about so you can get reacquainted with it. You need some degree of effort to remember what has been forgotten, but look at old pictures, ask your friends and your old friends about your best qualities. What you are now is the best starting point to finding out what else you can do to unleash your full potential. Do not lost lose sight of the goal, though, as sometimes we tend to wallow in nostalgia.
You dream that you are stuck in mud or concrete
Dreaming that you are stuck in concrete or mud means that you are afraid to change or move forward. We usually worry about many things, and we get anxious about change. The uncertainty it brings can cause us not to want to change. Other people might be comfortable with the status quo, but change can be a good thing. It means that we are willing to explore what can be, instead of just focusing on what is.
Another possible meaning is that you want to change, but you find yourself in a sticky situation. Waning to change is different from acting on the change— s. Sometimes we just can’t can’t do it on our own. Having help from other people is a good idea at this time. If the issue is monetary, you can even ask help from a trusted financial advisor who would be able to provide good advice.
You dream of a farm
Living on a farm means that you are away from most of civilization. There might be limited water or electricity, but life can be good because everything that you need is already there. You can be self-sufficient and even help others with surplus produce. If you dream that you are on a farm and with farmers, it is your brain calling you to dig deeper and identify needs that are still unmet.
You may need to improve certain aspects of your life. There might be seeds of ideas that you need to cultivate. On the contrary, it can also mean that you are productive and you feel good about it. The farm represents all the hard work you are putting in, and since farmers usually toil from sunrise to sunset, the brain is rewarding you for your good behavior by showing you this dream.
You dream of chewing gum
There are times when we feel challenged by communicating something to another person. Perhaps you do not know the words to say because you are afraid of offending them. This can lead to frustration, which ends up as a dream where you are chewing lots of gum. The act of chewing represents the inability to use the mouth to form the words that you are trying to say.
To some degree, this is true, as words come out muffled if you try to speak with a full mouth. This is why our parents would always warn us not to talk when our mouth is full. But what if we need to talk? Get rid of the gum, or in this case, whatever it is that is hindering you from communicating well. We also use gums to overcome nervousness in real life, so find out what may be making you jittery.
You dream of getting a divorce
Divorce can go either of two ways; it can be a happy occasion, or a sad one. After all, you are either happy to let go of someone you are not compatible with, or are sad because you still love the person you’re you’re divorcing. Lawyers would also be involved, as properties need to be divided. However, if you dream of a divorce, it does not mean you wish for it.
It can be because your schedule is so packed that you are having problems committing to each of those appointments or projects. Remember that there are limits to what you can do. Prioritize high-value projects and then delegate the ones that you can. While we want to be very productive, we also need to respect our body and mental limits. Listen to your body and what it is telling you.
You dream of endless packing
When you travel, you want it to be as seamless as possible, so days ahead, you usually pack the things you want to bring. You plan ahead as well and make sure that the car’s car’s gas is refilled and the engine in top shape. But if in your dream you see yourself continually packing luggage, it can signal that in your waking life, you are trying to arrange your affairs endlessly.
You try to cram as many activities as possible, making you not enjoy the travel anymore as you have too many worries. The dream serves as a reminder that you need to take a break, let go of some things and then pack only the necessities. In many travels anyway, you just need some clothes, cash, and credit cards. Being minimalist when travelling — and being minimalist in life, in general — can be liberating.
You dream of dogs
Dogs are man’s man’s best friend. If you see dogs in a dream, they can mean differently depending on how they are presented in the dream. If, for example, you are terrified of dogs and you see them chasing you in your dreams, this can signify that you are running away from responsibilities in your waking life. It can also point to you being afraid to take responsibility or you want someone else to take the blame.
It can mean having financial difficulties, perhaps being unable to pay your payday loans. Taking care of dogs requires commitment and effort, as is going through life. If you are in a relationship, dreaming of dogs can also mean that you have some deep discontent in the relationship. You have to talk to your partner regarding that and make sure that you talk about even the most mundane issue.
You dream of getting married to a stranger
This is one of those dreams about commitment. It is usually an unpleasant experience if you dream of being married to a stranger. You would want to commit to someone you know on a deep level, not some acquaintance. A dream like this represents the uncertainties that you feel if you are new to a job, a place or a relationship. Uncertainties can be very scary, as is commitment.
You are still unsure of how much commitment you have to put in. It can also mean that you are uncertain of what you are getting yourself into. If this is a financial decision, always get in touch with a financial advisor whom you can trust. If the commitment relates to family and work, you can always reach out to friends and family who are more experienced and can help you.
You dream of an earthquake
An earthquake is the ground vibrating and moving things around. It is a scary experience for many. If you dream that you are experiencing an earthquake, it means that a stable part of your life is coming apart and becoming unstable. It can also signal a significant change where you feel that your world is changing so fast you cannot adjust. When the ground cannot shift, it breaks—a bad omen.
Perhaps you are applying for a mortgage, and you feel overwhelmed. If we cannot adapt quickly, it results in cracks in our life, much like what an earthquake does. These cracks can have adverse effects on our physical and mental health. Changes can be frightening, so it would not be a setback if you take a break and assess what is going on, before moving forward. Keeping yourself grounded is key.
You dream that you are wetting yourself
In many cases, when this happens in a dream, it also occurs in real life. It is a prevalent dream when you were younger perhaps, but can again emerge while you’re you’re an adult. You probably associate bed wetting as embarrassing, and as kids, you would have been reluctant to tell your parents.
This can mean that the brain is trying to warn you of an impending pee, hence telling you even as you sleep that you are about to empty your bladder. To some degree, this dream can also be associated with stress. Try to determine what is causing the stress and address it. As an adult, peeing in your dream also means that your ego is being challenged and you do not like it. Try to see what you can improve in this aspect—and asking a friend usually helps.
You dream that you are a professional athlete
As a kid, you probably wanted to become a football player or a baseball star. As you got older, however, your parents probably coaxed you into focusing on a finance degree instead, and the dream of being an athlete was not realized. That can lead to frustrations in real life. But in your dream, it can mean something positive.
It means that you have that deep desire to become part of a larger society and become a productive member of it. Definitely, it should not just start as a desire. You will need to work on training yourself, just like an athlete, every day to become an integral part of the community. Social skills, including communication skills, will need to improve a lot as well. Apart from learning social skills, some intrapersonal skills would also be good so that you can reflect on yourself.
You dream of a tornado
Humans are definitely not as powerful as Mother Nature. Tornadoes and typhoons are evidence of that. No matter what we do, we cannot prevent them, but we can always prepare for when they happen. If there will be no electricity after the storm, we stockpile on candles and prepare the generator set. When a dream about tornadoes happens, it is similar. It signals your fear of not being able to control many aspects of your waking life.
It also forecasts a possible major change that is about to happen. Change can either be destructive or constructive, and it will depend on how you adapt to those changes. What you can do is to have a backup plan for everything that might go wrong. Be ready to adapt as needed. Also, make sure that you watch over those that you care deeply about and help then when such changes occur.
You dream that you are reading a book
Books signify knowledge. Hence, if you dream that you are reading a book, it means that you are craving for knowledge. You might be new at work, or have just started college and are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of concepts you still need to grasp. But deep within you, you want to have knowledge that can help you succeed.
If you dream of reading books frequently, the brain is telling you to study new skills. Perhaps you can take online classes on various topics. With many resources available now, there is virtually no limitation to how you can learn a new craft. YouTube videos are also a good source of information as there are various how-to videos and DIY projects you may want to explore. In any case, we should read more and increase our work and life skills.
You dream of an ex-lover
This dream is straight-forward. It means that you are still not able to let go of the past. Seeing your ex-lover in a dream indicates your longing for that person and of the many past regrets and decisions you made. What is essential is that you learn to wean yourself from the behavior, people, and attitudes that no longer currently serve you.
Give yourself credit for the effort you put in at forgetting certain aspects of your past and then use the lessons you learned to move forward. Your brain is also telling you that you need a deeper connection with yourself if you have not done so yet. Reflect and reassess the decisions you made and go from there. Accept that the past can no longer be changed, but the future can still be very much flexible depending on your actions today.
You dream of ants crawling on your skin
Ants, especially fire ants, are not just annoying but are also painful when they bite. Imagine many of them crawling on your skin. That can be very irritating. If you see ants in a dream, the brain is trying to tell you that you get annoyed with little things. You also probably stress over little worries.
This is unhealthy to your mental health, as you will end up having negative thoughts most of the time. It can also lead to physical health issues as stress causes the body to release stress hormones that cause body inflammation. Identify what is causing this stress, and give the best degree of effort you can to not think of them anymore. The little stresses can pile up and manifest physically, which we do not want to happen. A happy life begins with a happy thought.
You dream of a fatal injury
Any injury to the body is not good. We’re We’re only talking about physical injuries here, but also emotional ones. If you dream that you are fatally wounded, it can mean that in your waking life, you feel emotionally injured. This can be caused by various reasons, such as a friendship lost or a loved one who passed away. Whatever the emotional distress is, give it time and process it.
Acceptance is the key to having peaceful nights. Another possible meaning is that your brain is telling you that you are becoming too proud in a relationship. This can result in quarrels and breakdown in communication, which can strain the couple. If one becomes more demanding, it tips the balance in the give-and-take. Any relationship is an investment and is precious; hence we should take care of our partners and stay committed like we promised.
