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.
1. Being Lost or Trapped.
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.
2. Missed Opportunities.
Do you ever dream about missing public transportation,
比如公共汽车 火车 飞机或的士？
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 events.
In real life,
these dreams may reflect the regrets you have
for not going after what you wanted,
whether that means missing out on
seen your favorite band perform live
or not applying for your dream job on time.
3. Car Troubles.
People who dream above 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, a 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.
4. Failing a Test.
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.
5. Being Chased.
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.
6. Tooth Decay.
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.
7. Falling or Sinking.
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.
