One thing in life that I find fascinating are dreams. I have quite vivid and sometimes strange dreams and its always been a subject I've wondered about.
One of my recurring dreams is my teeth falling out - not particularly nice and there have been times I've woken up and had to check my teeth are still there. One meaning behind this is vanity. Teeth are associated with appearance, for instance white, perfect teeth are seen as attractive. Teeth falling out could signify a lack of confidence, worries about appearance or a fear of getting older. It could also be linked to embarrassment, worrying about how others view you or fears over general health.
GOING TO THE TOILET
Another one of my common dreams is needing to go to the toilet but not being able to - either the toilet is blocked, dirty, flooded or its in open view for everyone to see. My own interpretation is that it stops you weeing in the middle of the night. However other meanings suggest that a blocked/flooded toilet can relate to struggling with your emotions and not opening up.
I've only recently started having dreams where I'm naked or without a certain piece of clothing, such as shoes. Nudity can relate to feeling vulnerable or exposed - maybe in terms of identity, such as insecurities. However, it can also relate to being caught off guard and maybe being under prepared in a certain situation.
TAKING A TEST
This is another fairly common dream. With me, I'm always preparing for the test in my dream or back at school. This can mean a lack of confidence, trying to prepare for situations in real life or signify a time when you were happy or sad, depending on your school experience.
Water in your dreams can be present in different way. I often have dreams relating to drowning or being submerged in water. Water is often linked to emotions. What I dream about is most likely linked to overwhelming emotions, whereas dreaming about calm waters can represent peace of mind and tranquillity.
The meanings behind your dreams can be linked to feelings and situations you're experiencing at the time but dreams can be interpreted in different ways. I'd love to find some meaning behind some of my weirdest dreams as they're seriously bizarre but I do find it really interesting. This was a little different to my usual posts but I'll be back with a beauty post soon.
