We have been fascinated by dreams and their meaning for centuries. In the end of the nineteenth century psychotherapist Carl Jung began to conclude that looking into dreams was opening a door into consciousness and the spirit world. But, there is a science during sleep behind that. A research teem from Japan, have explored human’s brain and concluded that we watch our dreams in the same way as we watch our walking world.
In order to analyze our dreams we must study our daily activities and how we participate in them. What do these symbols mean? How can we interpret them in order to give us the messages?
If you fly it often indicates the need to reach an ambition. Where are you going and how to get there? Are you experiencing some troubles through life? Flying dreams often leave us recharged when we wake. That feeling of freedom, being able to accomplish everything.
Water usually conveys the emotional state of mind. It symbolizes cleansing and purity.The dream of waterfalls is a great omen which represents new beginnings.
Once you see waterfalls in your dreams, ask yourself: Is the waterfall a big or a small one? How are you perceiving your obstacles? Is the waterfall in a dark jungle or a beautiful beach?
A very common dream is the one with teeth. Pulling a teeth can mean that something needs to come out, rotten teeth – the holding of fear and anxiety. But, dreaming of falling teeth are the most typical of all teeth dreams. They usually symbolize new situations and can cause stress ( a new job, fear of loss, lack of power in a relationship, or lies that are being kept)
Seeing teeth in your dreams ask yourself: How do you feel about your teeth? How are we nourishing our lives?
A dream of death is more common that people admit it. It feels morbid and the dream of death usually means an end to something. Death is the termination of ego parts. Death of anxiety and danger. Death of a situation. Death of an idea allowing for the birth of another. Dreaming of death can symbolize huge changes in emotions.
If you see death in your dreams, ask yourself: Where you the one who died? Was it a loved one? These dreams can also be guidance from a departed loved one trying to give comfort.
Dreaming of being pregnant symbolizes a major growth and development. It can be geared to future projects and desires.
If you visualize pregnancy in your dreams, ask yourself : What are you trying to create? What transformation are you encountering in your waking life? Are you pregnant with possibilities?
Dreaming of houses means the self and different aspects of personality. It depends on the type of house or different rooms so the interpretation can deepen. An attic means hidden memories, while a basement – intuition and unconscious mind.
If you see houses in your dreams, ask yourself: How are you taking care of your body? How do you perceive yourself out in the world?
Dreaming money allow you to wake up with gratitude. It is about luck and how we perceive our self-worth. If you win the lottery in a dream it can mean a change in lifestyle, and dreaming of giving money is often a fear of loss.
If you see money in your dreams, ask yourself: Did you lose your job? Are you in debt? What would you do if you won the lottery? Money symbolizes the flow of life.
If you dream of adultery it signifies sexual desires and urges that need to be expressed. These dreams carry abandonment and fears, self-worth issues and an acceptance of a problematic relationship.
If adultery appears in your dreams, ask yourself: Are you afraid of losing a loved one? Are you unhappy in your own relationship? How do you feel about your body and desires?
Several meanings come with fire. Seeing fire in a distance can mean desire and transformation, playing with fire can be a warning of risky activities. If you dream of starting a fire symbolizes anger that is being repressed.
Ask yourself: Do you avoid risky situations? Do you spend your day putting out fires?
Dreams of being naked are also very common. They connect our fear of being exposed. If you dream about somebody else being naked it means a situation or foretell of an illicit affair. It can also mean the loss of respect. Just like in waking moments it is about how much something is exposed to the world of the self.
If you are naked in a dream, ask yourself: Are you afraid of being seen for who you are? Are you over exposing yourself?
The mind will try desperately to dictate, through short visions, how our emotions are being played. Anxiety or joy can change the way we sleep. It’s up to us to truly be aware how we carry ourselves during waking ours.
“Dreams…are invariably seeking to express something that the ego does not know and does not understand.” – Carl Jung
