Sleep scientists believe that people can dream four to six times per night. What’s a shame is that almost 95% of the dreams you have are forgotten shortly after you wake up.
But if you remember your dreams, here are some of the most vivid and common ones that you probably have had, and what they could possibly mean.
1. You’re flying.
If you are flying in a dream, it relates to how much control you have in your life. The higher you are flying, the more control you have.
2. You’re being chased.
People who are being chased generally have a problem they are running from. These types of dreams encourage people to face their problems head-on.
3. You’re losing your teeth.
This is usually a bad omen. It generally means that you have lost confidence or power in your life. Other experts say that it means that you want a wish to be granted. This is a greatly debated dream type.
4. Vehicles play a prominent role.
Vehicles in a dream relate to control…if you are driving with relative ease, it means you’re quite literally in the driver’s seat of your life.
5. Sex is involved.
Dreaming about sex is an insight into your deepest desires. It can signal who you want to be intimate with or what really makes you tick — whether it’s normal, strange, or incredibly erotic.
6. You’re paralyzed.
When you’re dreaming, you typically are experiencing a form of sleep paralysis, which is why your body doesn’t actually do the things it is dreaming. When you dream of being paralyzed, that represents the overlap of the dream state and consciousness.
7. You’re taking a test.
Perfectionists typically have dreams where they are taking tests long after they have graduated from school. These type of dreams are related to work stresses.
8. You’re nude.
Nudity in dreams is said to represent vulnerability and anxiety.
9. You’re falling.
This usually represents that there is something very wrong in your life…something that you consider to be an issue that needs to be addressed.
10. There are babies!
No, it’s not your biological clock ticking…when you dream of babies, it typically means that something new is going on in your life.
11. Someone is pregnant.
Experts view dreams about pregnancy as a sign that the dreamer needs to start something new in their life.
12. There are other people in your dream.
When you see other people during your dreams, this refers to different aspects of yourself. Different people represent your own various characteristics.
13. Someone dies.
Dreaming of death can be frightening, but it usually means that you need to end something in order to make room for a new thing in your life.
14. Food is involved.
Seeing food in your dreams can mean that you are energized and hungry for something more in life.
15. Cheating is a storyline.
Unsurprisingly, experts generally associate cheating dreams with mistrust in a relationship.
16. You’re in school.
Dreaming that you are back in school shows that you have a problem to face that you already defeated long ago. It’s a sign that you need to learn from the past.
17. You’re near water.
Different types of water mean different things in dreams, but they all refer to our emotional status. Calm waters mean you’re at peace, while turbulent waters demonstrate that your life is out of control and stressful.
18. There’s a house.
A house generally represents the dreamer’s mind. The different rooms relate to different aspects of life. Things in the basement are things that have been neglected, whereas bedrooms relate to intimate feelings.
19. You meet a celebrity.
When you dream of meeting a celebrity, it usually means that you value something about them like their talent, style, or personality.
