Lucid Dreaming - What do your dreams mean?

The Dream - Henri Rousseau,1910 | MoMA The Museum of Modern Art

Learning the meaning behind some of the common dream scenarios can help us to understand about our subconscious demand and communicate with our inner-self.


1. Being Chased

This is one of the most commonly reported dreams. It suggests you are running away from something that is causing you fear or anxiety in waking life. The chaser also represents an aspect of yourself, such as your own feeling of anger; jealousy or fear can manifest itself as the threatening figure

What you should do: This is often a great opportunity for you to pursue a particular personal ambition.


2. Teeth Falling Out

Dreams about your teeth can reflect your anxieties about your appearance and image. Such dreams usually root from a fear of rejection and embarrassment. Since teeth are used to bite and tear, losing your teeth can resemble a sense of powerlessness, which means you maybe experiencing a self-confidence issue.

What you should do: Rather than seeing this situation as something that will leave you powerless, just try calmly thinking over the facts and relish it as a challenge.


3. Unable To Find A Toilet

Having trouble to find a toilet means you may find it difficult for you to express your needs in walking state. You may feel that you are lacking time for personal issue and need more privacy or self-care.

What you should do: Spend more time looking after your own needs, rather than the need of others.


4. Naked In Public

Being naked in a dream symbolises not being able to find yourself, uncertainty or being wrongly accused. If you are not the naked person but you see a nude person in dream, it means you are worried about exposing that person.

What you should do: Although it might be potentially embarrassing, sometimes you just have to open up to others so they can see your real talents.


5. Unprepared For An Exam

Exam dreams can be so real that we actually wake up and convinced we just failed an important test. Such dreams are a reflection of your lack of confidence and inability to advance to the next stage in life.

What you should do: Rather than immersing yourself in endless self-examination, the real test of your character is being able to accept your talents by celebrating your knowledge and achievements.


6. Flying

Being able to fly freely suggests that you have released yourself from circumstances that have been weighing you down in waking life. Being afraid to fly means that you might have trouble keeping up with the high goals you set for yourself. Being struggled to fly means you are lacking confidence with yourself and your fear is stopping you from reaching your goal.

What you should do: Depending on the situation of flying, if the flying was enjoyable, congrats! If the flying was scary, try setting down your goal and get help from friends in reaching it.


7. Falling

If you fall anywhere and you are overcome by fear, it signifies insecurity and anxiety about a situation. While if you enjoy the feeling of falling suggests that you are not afraid of changes

What you should do: Rather than being concerned about losing control, sometimes you just have to trust yourself and others by allowing everything to fall naturally into place.
