The dreams and their meanings have been a subject of fascination for many centuries. According to the famous psychotherapist Carl Jung (1875-1960), the dreams are a form of communication between yourself and the unconscious.
They are not attempts to hide your real emotions from the waking mind, but rather they reveal more than they conceal since they are a window to your consciousness.
This theory was supported by a team of scientists from the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratory in Kyoto, Japan, who explored brain scans to identify the visual imagery of dreams.
The scientists arrived at a conclusion that we watch both our dreams and our waking world in the same manner. Your dreams share a close connection with your participation in your daily activities.
Although there are not definite interpretations of your dreams, there are certain common dream symbols which have generally accepted meanings.
Dreams about teeth can have different meanings. Having rotten teeth symbolizes anxiety and fear while pulling of teeth means that there is something that needs to come out.
The falling of teeth is among the most common teeth dreams. These dreams signify that you will be dealing with new situations that may cause stress, such as fear of loss, new job, hidden lies, or lack of power in a relationship.
Dreams of flying usually symbolize the need to accomplish some ambition. These dreams are associated with freedom and success.
Dreaming that you are flying signifies that you will free yourself from some stressful situation, or that you will achieve some established goal.
Death is closely related to a change. Death dreams mean that there will be an end of something, such as a situation, an idea, a habit, a relationship, etc.
Death is a transition from one state of being to another, so the end is followed by a new beginning. Dreaming of dying or death can also mean that you will experience great changes in your emotions.
Money dreams are related to luck, value, and your own perception of self-worth. If you dream that you are winning a lottery, it means that you will make some great change in your lifestyle, and if you dream that you are giving some money away, it symbolizes a fear of loss.
The water is a sign of purity and cleansing. It is a representation of conscious life experiences, as well as feelings and emotions.
Dreaming waterfalls is a good omen. The waterfalls are symbols of new beginnings while the old events are washed out.
A house represents your mind. Dreams of houses are related to yourself and the different aspects of your personality. The interpretation of these dreams depends on the type of the house or the different rooms in it.
The houses are symbols of comfort and security. The basement signifies unconscious mind and intuition while the attic refers to hidden memories.
Dreams of fire can symbolize different things, depending on the context of your dream. Playing with fire is an indication that some risky activity or a dangerous situation is about to develop while seeing a distant fire signifies transformation and desire.
If you are dreaming of starting a fire, it means that you are dealing with repressed anger.
