I don’t know about you but I dream a lot and, what’s more, I tend to remember them. What I never understand is why, so with that in mind I decided to look into the subject on-line and in various books, as my dreams have become weirder as the years go on. I needed to know some answers and perhaps share them with you. Here are some of my usual dreams:
A classic dream for me and many of my friends is when your teeth fall out for no apparent reason. For me, it started with one or two being slightly wobbly. I tried the best I could to stop feeling them with my tongue but failed miserably. One then two and three of the front ones would fall out into my hand. In my unconscious state I would be feeling mortified like it was the end of the world. Then I would put them into my coat pocket and make my way to the dentist. The last time I dreamt this I remember putting my hand in my pocket to retrieve the main tooth, the incisor, and pulling out a parsnip. Strange.
This dream has many meanings but the main one is a feeling of anxiety about a change in one’s life. I tend to get this particular dream just before going back to work after the Summer holidays.
Another dream for me is going out half naked. I’m constantly looking for things to cover me up so nobody sees me but can’t find anything. I can’t believe I’ve walked out of the house in that state and am totally embarrassed. Nobody else seems to notice me but I fear they will and am truly mortified.
This dream basically means that you are afraid to let anyone see the real you and feel that all the attention is on you when you don’t want to be noticed because you feel unprepared. With all eyes on you, you fear that some flaw will be brought to public attention. You fear that people will see through your true self and you will be exposed as a fraud.
That’s basically how I feel, usually. I like to stay out of the limelight as much as possible and try my best not to draw attention to myself except for when my other ‘self’ comes out. The one that sees me doing karaoke and dancing like an idiot and making a spectacle of myself.
One more dream that features an awful lot is about dogs. As I have a fear of dogs, this one scares me the most. It starts with me walking home and then I notice a dog, baring it’s teeth, standing in my path. I try to pretend I haven’t noticed it and walk past. Out of the corner of my eye, I notice another one approaching me and another following. I get to my door and frantically try to put the key in the lock. The door opens but I can’t close it because one dog is standing in the doorway. When I eventually shut the door, the dog’s paws poke under it and try to touch me. His paws become longer the further I walk away and I can’t get away.
To see a dog in your dream symbolizes intuition, loyalty, generosity, protection, and fidelity. The dream suggests that your strong values and good intentions will enable you to go forward in the world and bring you success. The dream dog may also represent someone in your life who exhibits these qualities. Alternatively, to see a dog in your dream indicates a skill that you may have ignored or forgotten. If the dog is vicious and/or growling, then it indicates some inner conflict within yourself. It may also indicate betrayal and untrustworthiness.
My dreams have become a talking point amongst family and friends for years. I have only mentioned my usual ones as I do tend to have these more than once.
Also, although I’m not sure if anyone believes me, I have had dreams where something I’ve dreamt of has happened the following day. I have dreamt about aeroplane crashes, car crashes and many more disasters where I’ve only seen them happen but not sure where or when. I’ve had images in my dreams that have appeared in the newspapers or on the TV the next day. I don’t know whether I’m psychic or have some sort of power that is undiscovered. Usually, after such a dream, I wake up with a massive headache and feel exhausted. I don’t know why they happen, perhaps I should find out, but after years of having these dreams I make a point of telling someone as soon as I can. Just so they know I haven’t made it up when I say,
‘I dreamt about that last night.’
If you can interpret my dreams, or even suggest why I get dreams that become reality, then please do. Thanks to Dream moods dictionary for some of the interpretations above.
