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.

  17. What does it mean if you dream about something sad? Like your friends leaving you or a family member passing away? Because I mostly have the leaving friends dream.

  18. i just had a dream that woke me up. in my dream there was a young man. God told him that there was a girl in a certain house and pointed it out to him. he told him he wanted him to be with her and gave him her name. so the guy goes to the house but there's two girls there. he goes back and forth between the two girls wondering which one it is. one of the girls is extremely talkative. she's doing her make-up and talking to all the boys very flirtatiously. she's very pretty and he can't help but stare at her. i suppose in hopes it would be her, because he's thinking about what he does and doesn't like about her. the other girl is just sitting there with a young boy in front of her not really saying much of anything. then the girl finally asks him what he wants. he tells them that God had told him to be with the girl named (i forgot). then the girl not talking said to the pretty girl, "you told me it was this boy!" everything seemed messed up so he went home. at home there was a written message from God that said, "there's a tablecloth i want you to eat every day". the guy thinks how weird that is and throws it away without a second thought. then i hear God telling me, "it's not the message that counts, it's what you do with it." then i woke up. i've thought about it since i woke up. possibly it means the voice of reason comes into play. possibly the pull of the heart. or maybe the message was misinterpreted altogether. as in there should have been a comma after tablecloth possibly? so i'm up at 4 am contemplating deeper things lol.

  32. Those falling dreams are coming from our ancestors. A big amount of early tree humans died by falling off of trees. And that gets passed via genetic memory from generation to generation.

  33. I have dreams almost everynight, love it but hate it also.
    There was this girl who went to school with me and I had a feelings for her, during my dream I was driving in my car and she was holding my hand from passenger side and I was having the time of my life, felt insanely real then my alarm clock went off. Ahhhhhh damn…..
    Anyways I have a lot of nightmares as well, some of the dreams I met random people who gave me life lessons, can’t remember how they look like but thankful for them.

  34. My dream was. There is a whole bunch of lions on lion was a cub but it already had a mane apes were hunting the Lions every night.

And then one day the apes came back and killed the silverback gorilla

  35. I was dreaming about my sister drowning suddenly. And I tried to do cpr but it didn’t work and she died

  36. Yeah the whole falling is forshadowing for your death thing wouldn't make sense for me. I dreamt for a while just jumping over things like low, small fences and still waking up before touching the ground. No one could die from a fall that low sooo nope!

    Also I used to have nightmares every night-

  37. Last night I had a dream where I was in a war only using swords and bows. I was training in a camp then when we were done (the camp was on a hill) we saw a squad of the enemy on the bottom I slid down the hill and killed an Asian kid with the sword I stabbed him twice then everyone came Down and took out the squad lmao Dw there was no blood it was legit like a virtua reality game then I saw ghost rider and i Reyes to kill him but my bows do no damage to him cause I guess you get team kill in dreams

    One last dream xD: It was dark in my apartment and I woke up one the couch I heard a voice sorta like a narrator but it was a voice I had reconized, I got up and suddenly I saw myself from a different perspective, then I was back through my eyes i heard footsteps though I couldnt see, for some teason I knew they were walking into my brothers room. Then I was back in there perspective there was a girl with black hair (how cliché) and then she turned around and stared at me. At first she was smiling but then her smile turned into an angry expression then I heard the voice say again "dude! Why did you look at her?!" All I heard was foot steps and then

    I woke up

  39. What does it mean if frequently you dream you are searching for a toilet but can't find one?

  40. Well my most common DrEaM is

    Being rejected by my crush

  41. I dreamt i was in the game “Granny” but real life, with my friend, and both of us were just running and hiding away from the Monster. At one point it got too real and i jumped up in sweat.

  42. -the first part
    I had this dream that my two best friends and I were on a plane to god knows where. My friend (let’s call her Fiona) was looking out the window, she turned back and said with the straightest face ever (like with no fear or just emotion in general) and says “emergency landing” and then she shrugged it off. My other friend (let’s call her Kim) finished drinking her orange juice and turned towards me and said with a smile “February 22”.

    -the second part

    I don’t really know what happened but now all the lights on the plane were off and we were nose diving at full speed towards the earth. At this point the plane is going down at almost a 90° angle, I was practically falling off my seat with only the seatbelt stopping me. Kim and Fiona acted as if nothing was happening.
    -the third part
    now here’s something crazy, the plane is on the ground and we’re fine but the plane was on fire. It seemed like we were the only people on board. Fiona and Kim seemed to realize our fate if we didn’t get the hell out of the plane. They still didn’t talk though.

    -the third part again cuz I don’t remember how we got out of the plane but my dream cut to the part you’re about to read

    y’all wtf is up with my dreams lately, i mean like seriously wtf.
    So, now we’re running at full speed through this field of pink tulips, the plane still very much on fire and waiting to explode at any second. We ran for about what seemed like forever until we reached this random narrow road in the middle of the field. I looked up and read that the street was called Humble St. (lol now that I read the story over again I realize how bad I am at describing the scene and just telling stories)

    hope u enjoyed my dream/nightmare thing.
    If your confused after reading this don’t worry I am too.

  43. I had a dream where I was with my mom and my sister and I went to go leave while they my mom was folding cloths and my sister playing with her toys and then my mom calls me and I go back and there's nobody there and the lights are off so I go in and a strange man or thing comes out of nowhere behind the door and says do you remember me and I woke up

  44. who else has the falling dream and then has a weird panic attack when they wake up

  45. I had in insanely weird dream so I apparently was walking out of my house in the backyard. And in my hand was book. Not going to say what type. Hahaha just because of nightmares. So I just threw it in the trash bin. And I looked over and my pooling see it was split in 2 yet very close together. And having a wall in between them. But in side the pool we what looked like 20 people in one pool. So I went over and hopped in. Then only 2 people came over to my side. And out of their mouth they pulled out a Nintendo switch which was water proof. And then I saw the other 18 walking on water. The the person on my side grabbed the switch from me and threw it in the other sides face

  85. I have a dream of tooth decay
    Which is true but strange for a Gemini

  86. i had a dream about kissing a girl… but im a girl…


  87. Am I the only one who doesn’t remember their dream unless it’s a bad/scary one ??

  88. I've dreamed about someone I used to like and no matter how hard I try I can't stop thinking about them or get them out if my head and I don't know what to do or what it means so I just ignore it

  89. Me: plays 'bang'

    I have many questions.

  90. i have an extremely weird dream where its a nightmare, and i realize its a dream and so i close my eyes to spawn something random, for instance, i had a dream that pennywises balloon was chasing me outside in my garden and i close my eyes to spawn an invisible plane and i fly it and stRt shooting at the balloon.

  91. I dreamed about this guy for a month and I really liked him so I confessed but he told me that he was my boy self and hes there to tell me to be strong and in a blink of an eye hes gone. I woke up crying. I never dreamed of him again. I think because I wanted to be a boy so badly that time because I felt like I wasent born to be a girl and now I feel so confident as a girl and I really thank my dream to make me a girl that I was meant to be.

  92. I had a dream of a doctor cutting out my heart with a sword

  93. I often have nightmares of being chased… or when I enter a room and there is a dark creature standing in the Corning with its back facing me. Honestly, i find these dreams much more exciting than not having them because they feel so vivid and alive. So, what’s the meaning then?

  94. I dreamed I got on a rollercoaster and when they locked the safety bar in place, two men were there and started shooting everyone. I dreamed I was shot then I died. Then I immediately woke up. Is this dream of my impending death?
