Three Common Dreams and What They Mean

By  |  0 Comments

Have you ever woken up from a dream and been completely and utterly convinced that it was real? Some dreams can be very realistic, and this is especially baffling when you know that there is no way the dream could happen – such as being with someone who has passed away – or unlikely to happen, such as falling from a great height.

For anyone who analyses their dreams or who wonders if there is some meaning behind them, here is what three common dreams could be trying to tell you.

Dreaming of Falling

Much like people who dream about flying, people wake from dreaming about falling feeling discombobulated. Dreaming of falling can signify you are worried about losing control in one or more aspects of your life. A sensation known as a hypnogogic state can make you feel as though you are falling as you dream, often resulting in waking suddenly and in a heightened state. If you regularly dream of falling it could be an indication that you feel helpless and are struggling to maintain balance in life. Take note of what you are falling from and how you land. If you land on your feet this could suggest things are going to improve.

Dreaming of Loved Ones Who Have Died

It is quite common to dream about loved ones who have passed away, especially if your loss is fresh, you have been thinking about them a lot during your waking hours, or if it is a significant date such as a birthday or anniversary. Dreaming of someone who has died can be a sign that you are about to undergo a big change in your life, such as starting a new job or moving house. It might be your mind manifesting support from someone who has been there for you through difficult times. Some people consider this a way of spirits connecting from the afterlife through the power of dreams, which can be a great source of comfort. 

Dreaming of Teeth Falling Out

Although this can be a disturbing dream, especially if you value your looks, some dream analysts suggest there is no deeper meaning beyond worrying about your appearance changing, for example, through aging. Others suggest it is a more general dream about loss or fear of loss, perhaps of a person or your job. 

Stress and anxiety can cause you to sleep poorly and influence your dreams, so if you are having dreams that disturb you, try to find a way to relax before turning in. Yoga, meditation, and mindfulness are popular options, but you could also change habits such as what you drink before bed. Swap highly caffeinated drinks such as coffee or Coca-Cola for milky drinks instead, or have a bath to help you relax rather than an invigorating nighttime shower.

Many dreams can be interpreted in several ways and whether you believe they have meaning could depend on your religion, spiritualism, or lifestyle. Whatever your thoughts, there’s no denying dreams are fascinating!
