Dream Interpretion

Why do we dream? No one actually knows why people dream. Is it your sub conscious way of telling you something that you might ignore or forgot during the day? Is it because you have buried your emotions so deep that the mind has a way of letting it go?

Do you know that five minutes after the end of the dream, half the content is forgotten. After ten minutes, 90% is lost. Sometimes you can remember bits and pieces, but sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just can't remember a thing!

I woke up really early today because of a dream. I dreamt that my teeth are falling out! I had to find out what does it means! I googled and I came across this website I ended up reading and browsing through the meaning and interpretation of my most common dreams- Teeth Dreams, Chase Dreams,Test/Exam Dreams and Falling Dreams.

Teeth Dreams

Dreams of falling teeth are the most common dreams that Dream Moods receives. According to this site, the typical dream scenarios include having your teeth crumble in your hands, fall out one by one with just a light tap, grow crooked or start to rot.

Basically this means that I might have anxieties about my appearances and how others might perceive me.Its all about feeling rejected or afraid of being embarrassed. According to this site, teeth symbolize power. And the loss of teeth in your your may be from a sense of powerlessness. LOL! yes.. I do feel powerless! It also symbolizes that I'm having difficulties expressing myself or getting my point across. I'm feeling frustrated when my voice is are not being heard! Maybe that's why I'm having these dreams.. I tend to keep my frustrations and feelings bottled up :-(

Chase Dreams

I got these kind of dreams once in a while. I'll dream that I am running from something but my legs just won't move!! Basically, this dreams signifies how you respond to pressure and cope with fears, stress or various situations in your walking life. Instead of confronting the situation, your dream indicates that you have a tendency to run away and avoid the issue. Also means that you feel threaten and insecure in the environment you are in. TRUE. I tend to have this dreams when I'm feeling insecure especially when I first moved to Dubai. I feel like I don't belong here.. my friends and family and not here.. I lost my career... and feeling really useless at times.

According to this site-

"The pursuer or attacker who is chasing you in your dream may also represent an aspect of yourself. Your own feelings of anger, jealousy, fear, and possibly love, can manifest itself as the threatening figure. Or the shadowy figure can symbolize the rejected characteristics of your Self. You may be projecting these feelings onto the unknown chaser. Next time you have a dream of being chased, turn around and confront your pursuer. Ask them why they are chasing you. What are you trying to run from?"

Am I suppose to talk to myself in my dreams? hehe I'll try that next time!

Test Dreams.

This is a funny one. I dreamt that I woke up late for my exams and I was crying because I was so late and I might just fail my exams! When I woke up, I laugh and told myself, my studying life really screwed my head up! I'm still having nightmares about it!

According to this site

"These dreams usually have to do with your self-esteem and confidence or the lack of. You tend to believe in the worst about yourself and are often overly worried that you are not making the grade and measuring up to other people's expectations of you. You may also experience the fear of not being accepted, not being prepared, or not being good enough. Test dreams also suggest that you are feeling unprepared for a challenge. Rarely, these dreams are about the actual content of the test, but rather it is more about the process and how you feel during the exam taking process. These feelings often parallel how you are actually feeling in a particular challenge or situation in your waking like."

I believe this is true to a certain extend. I often put too much pressure on myself. I care about what people think. I hate to be judge. I do believe in the worst in myself (not healthy, I know) because I always think that whatever I do is not good enough. I'm not sure why I always had this feelings. My parents never ever put any pressure on me, maybe I'm a Virgo, maybe I'm a perfectionist. Whatever the reason is, I need to believe in myself.

Falling Dreams

Have u ever dreamt that you are actually falling? Its a funny feeling like you somehow fall from your bed but you are actually on your bed!

This site suggest that

"As with most common dream themes, falling is an indication of insecurities, instabilities, and anxieties. You are feeling overwhelmed and out of control in some situation in your waking life. This may reflect the way you feel in your relationship or in your work environment. You have lost your foothold and keep up with the hustle and bustle of daily life. When you fall, there is nothing that you can hold on to. You more or less are forced toward this downward motion without any control. This lost of control may parallel a waking situation in your life.

Falling dreams also often reflect a sense of failure or inferiority in some circumstance or situation. It may be the fear of failing in your job/school, loss of status, or failure in love. You feel shameful and a lost sense of self-esteem You are unable to keep up with the status quo and feel that you don't measure up."


Gosh.. after seeing these interpretations, I think I really have self issues to work on! I need to work on my insecurities and my feelings. Don't want to have these dreams ever again!! I'm going to work on the way I think, the way I feel and do something about it and not just feeling sorry for myself. When there's a will, there is a way. If you don't try, you never know. I believe dreams do tell you something about yourself.  To all the dreamers out there, pay close attention to your dreams. Its the your sub-conscious way of communicating with you. Its telling you to do something about whatever issues u have and find a way to resolve it. I know I will. Who knows, I might be dreaming of chocolates and candies once I confronted my issues :-)
