Top Recurring Dreams and What They Mean

Trapped
Have you ever had a dream that you are locked in a room, trapped in a mine, or buried alive in a box? If so, then there is some aspect of your waking life that makes you feel trapped or claustrophobic. Did you make the wrong career choice? Is there a mountain of debt on top of you, stifling the lifestyle that you thought you would have?

Dreamforth.com says that if you dream you are caged you “may feel like you cannot change your situation and are feeling trapped by it”. Kind of like if you were locked in a cage in real life, so that make sense…

Dreamforth.com’s interpretation also suggests that this type of dream indicates “you may feel like you are not being allowed to live up to your full potential because somebody is holding you back”.

Excuse Me, Where’s the Washroom?

You search for a bathroom but when you get there the toilets are either broken or missing completely. Sometimes you wait in line for a long time, but when it’s your turn the stall doors are all gone or there are showers inside instead. When you wake up, you always have to go to the bathroom!
According to dreammoods.com, “to dream that you are in a public restroom with no stalls, signifies your frustrations about getting enough privacy”.

Wet Dreams

If you regularly dream that you are drowning, or that large waves wash over you, or floodwaters rise over you – you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed by something in your life.

According to Thecuriousdreamer.com dream dictionary, drowning indicates “overwhelming circumstances in real life, feelings of helplessness or hopelessness, or something feeling out of control.” It also explains that “one huge wave could represent… a challenge in your life” and a flood might represent “feeling like you are ‘over your head’ or things are out of control somehow in your life”.

Flying

Dreams about flying express feelings about freedom; .
Dreamsdictionary.org uses the following words to describe dreams about flying: “freedom of expression”, “doing the impossible”, and “creativity”.

But what if your superhero dreams go south? For advice when good flying dreams go bad, see #2 on this list (“Falling”).

Going Nowhere

Dream that you are moving in slow motion indicates that you are currently facing hardships and obstacles.
Dreams of paralysis can also fit into this category. One interpretation of paralysis is that you are “feeling unable to make progress of your own accord in your life, or in a particular situation” or you’re “feeling held back… perhaps even feeling self-sabotaged” (thecuriousdreamer.org).

How’s Your Dental Plan?

You feel something hard rolling around in your mouth and spit it out, only to discover it is one of your own teeth. Or, you look in the mirror and your teeth are all missing. Have you had this dream? This dream is apparently very common.
Well, you are feeling that things are decaying or falling apart in your life. In general, dreams about losing teeth are common and suggest the dreamer feels powerless or out of control in a real life situation.”

This interpretation is very similar to the dream that you are falling (see #2 on this list), but the next two interpretations earn it a space on the list all on it’s own. The first additional interpretation is from dreamsdictionary.org: “you are having difficulties related to self esteem and speaking your mind”.


Image
Public Exposure

If you have recurring dreams that you are naked in public, it means that you are afraid you will be exposed. Is there something you are hiding? The experts agree – apparently when you are naked in a dream you are revealing the real you

Image
Lost and/or Unprepared

if you are dreaming about being lost or unprepared, you probably feel unprepared or lost in your real life.

If you can’t get your locker open, can’t find your classroom or your house; or, you’re late for something (a test, a train, a meeting) then you find yourself in this category (and in good company – this is a very common type of dream).

School, career, even a new home – these settings all represent change. If you feel unprepared for changes coming to your waking life, then prepare yourself for dreams furnished with impenetrable school lockers, locked doors, and labyrinthine buildings.

, “…to dream that you are late for something represents your fear of change and your anxiety about seizing an opportunity. You may feel unready or unworthy in your current circumstances. You may also be conflicted over decisions about your future… Dreams about being at school often mean you are feeling insecure about your social status, your abilities or your performance in a situation.”

“dreams about locks mean you are frustrated and need to express your feelings about a situation in real life” and “…a dream that takes place in school may also be a metaphor for the lessons you are learning in your life.”

Dreamforth.com adds that “dream[s] of a school locker signify hidden feelings and thirst for knowledge”.

Image
Falling

Falling is definitely a sign that you are out of control. According to the curiousdreamer.com these dreams signify a loss of control as well as “a sudden lack of foundation in your life, such as a situation where ‘the rug is pulled out’ from under you”.
“…a feeling or fear of abandonment, especially feeling abandoned by a ‘caretaker’ such as a partner, employer, or by God.”

Image
Chased

You are probably trying to get away from something.

According to dream.net.au, “you are running away from or trying to hide from something you need to face”. It could be “a feeling you are avoiding, a conflict you don’t want to handle or a difficult memory you would rather forget.”

My recurrent dream isn't on that list.

I am running and realise that I can run faster if I don't actually touch the ground as I run. It works in my dream. :?

Several years ago I had a dream that was quite scary, in this dream I was at a friends place and there were several people there, it was in a rural setting maybe like in mountainous area. It was near dark but a little light was out and I remember looking up at the sky and the clouds were all dark and moving extremely fast also very high up, my good friend got on a horse and took off towards the direction the clouds were coming from and where he rode to was like an over look of a valley below, he turned from where he was and came riding back hollering very loud , run run run, everyone there started running away and I was the last one to turn and run and I jumped into a ditch or some place low, then I woke up! It was shortly after this dream that a very dear friend died and before that even several animals in the family, after all this was over and done I thought about this dream and the terrible thing I was never able to see, it was death! As a rule I don't dream much, actually I don't even sleep much so it was one that played on me for a while.

One other dream which was of no consequence was when I was looking for a machine to work on, I don't know where I was but everyone I ask where the machine was located could never tell me!. I'm still looking for that damned machine...
