“Dreams are invariably seeking to express something that the ego does not know and does not understand.” – Carl Jung.
Carl Jung was a 19th century psychotherapist. He conducted a series of studies and concluded that looking into dreams was opening a door into consciousness and the spirit world.
Dreams are a reflection a person’s sub conscious. Reading into dreams allows us to decode a person’s thoughts and repressed emotions. The dominant emotions and feelings in a person’s sub conscious manifests itself in the form of recurrent symbols in their dreams.
Here are 10 symbols common to dreams that you should never ignore:
If you see yourself flying in your dream you need to reach ambition. Dreams of flying indicate excessive freedom and the urge to achieve and accomplish everything on your way.
The symbol of water is usually related to purity and calmness. It is considered extremely pious to dream about water. It signifies that the water is washing out the old and paving way for something new and great.
Some dreams with teeth signify aging. Others however relate to stress and anxiety. A dream about pulling out teeth denotes the need to come out.
Dreaming of death usually symbolizes the ending of something. But in some cases dreams of death may also mean a loved one is trying to connect with you.
Dreaming of being pregnant means some major growth is on your way. It is a symbol of development and fruitful desires.
Dreams of houses symbolize the self and its different aspects. Dreaming about an attic indicates hidden memories while dreaming of a basement indicates the intuition.
Dreams about money relate to one’s prosperity.
If you see yourself winning a huge sum of money then you’re on the verge of a change in your lifestyle. If you dream of losing money it symbolises your fear of losing money.
The lack of financial stability is one of the leading causes of stress in a person’s life. Money drives the flow of life.
Dreaming of adultery symbolises repressed sexual urges that demand to be expressed. They may also result from a person’s lack of self-worth or an unstable relationship.
Insecurity in any relationship may lead to such dreams.
Dreams of fire have several meanings depending on their context. Seeing fire at a distance means possibilities and the desire for transformation. But if you see yourself playing with fire it means a warning for risky situations that are on their way. If you dream of starting a fire it symbolises your repressed anger.
Dreams that centre on nudity or nakedness are pretty common. They relate to one’s fear of being exposed. If in the dream one sees some other person naked it mostly means their loss of respect. Such dreams signify the “naked truth” being exposed. They also indicate the need to accept flaws and imperfections.
If you often dream of being naked you’re probably afraid of showing the world your real self.
The dreams are our mind’s interpretation of what we see and feel when we are awake.
