A good night’s sleep is always necessary to recharge our batteries and prepare ourselves for the day to come.
However, just because our bodies may spend six to nine hours resting each night, that doesn’t mean that our brains have stopped working for a second.
While we sleep, our brains and our subconsciousness are capable of taking us for quite a ride — through our dreams.
In order to analyze the dreams we must also study how we participate in our daily activities. Are dreams a replay on the visual stimuli of what we perceive in waking hours or messages of guidance from beyond? What do these symbols mean? How do we interpret them and analyze them to give us messages?
Dreams with teeth are very common. Not all teeth dreams symbolize aging. Pulling of teeth symbolizes something that needs to come out, while rotten teeth symbolize the holding of fear and anxiety. Dreaming of falling teeth are the most typical of all teeth dreams. They are usually derived to new situations that cause stress: a new job, fear of loss, lack of power in a relationship, or lies that are being kept hidden.
If you see teeth in your dreams, ask yourself these questions: How do you feel about your teeth? We use our teeth to nourish the body. How are we nourishing our lives?
Dreaming with death is more common than most people admit. As morbid as it feels, to dream of death usually symbolizes the ending of something. Death is the termination of ego parts. There is the death of anxiety and anger. The death of a situation. There is the death of an idea allowing for the birth of another. Dreaming of death or dying can be a psychological aspect of working tremendous changes in emotions.
If you see death in your dreams, ask yourself these questions: 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.
Femininity, spirituality, and power
Whether or not you are a cat-lover in your waking life shouldn’t matter; cats can appear as a powerful symbol in anyone’s dreams.
Your subconscious may be telling you to get further in touch with your feminine side. This can easily be accomplished through a deepening of your relationships with females.
There is a large amount of power associated with femininity. It may just be time to embrace that confidence. This may even lead to a sort of personal spiritual awakening.
Sexuality, status, and freedom
If you dream about hair, it is likely that you have some aspects of your physical relationships that you have to work out. Your subconscious may be telling you that it is time to embrace the more sexual side to your personality.
Hair also symbolizes a desire to connect with other people, so long as you know your status. You prefer to know exactly where you stand in relation to others — both at work and in relationships.
And if you specifically dream about long hair, you are aspiring for a sense of freedom. It may just be time to remove those artificial restrictions you sometimes put on yourself.
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 these questions: What are you trying to create? What transformation are you encountering in your waking life? Are you pregnant with possibilities? Pregnant dreams can bring fruitful ideas for a job or relationship.
Money dreams can allow us to wake with such gratitude. Dreaming with money is about luck and how we perceive our self-worth. Winning the lottery symbolizes a change in lifestyle while dreaming of giving money away is a fear of loss. Money dreams pertain to the core of our emotions towards the abundance and prosperity. Financial stability or losses are often stress factors in our lives.
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? The relationship with finances is one that rarely leaves the mind during waking moments. Money symbolizes the flow of life.
Dreams of being naked are very common. They connect to our fear of being exposed. If the dream is about someone else being naked it signifies “the naked truth” of a situation or foretell an illicit affair. It can also mean the loss of respect. Nakedness is about accepting flaws and imperfections. Just like in waking moments it is about how much 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?
Dreams of houses symbolize the self and the different aspects of personality. Depending on the type of house or the different rooms the interpretation can deepen. Houses are about security and comfort. An attic symbolizes hidden memories, while a basement can mean intuition and the 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?
