Diane Brandom has been studying sleep for many years. The writer says that our subconscious mind is trying to restore our inner balance and integrity. In this article, you will learn why you have certain nightmares.
1. Illness and other health-related situations
Such dreams occur when a person is afraid of something new that should enter his life. But it can also mean the fear of catching some disease, or the fear that everything will go wrong as planned. In rare cases, a dream about an illness is a harbinger and dreams when the disease already exists, but the person does not know about it yet.
2. You were attacked or injured
This dream speaks about the fear of other people. Probably a fear of criticism, or a fear of not fitting into a new environment. Sometimes this nightmare speaks of the fear of real violence. Therefore, in order to correctly interpret a dream, you need to know what is happening in a person's life.
3. Problems with the car
This type of nightmare means a loss of strength to move on, or a loss of control over your own life. Often the car symbolizes the ability to achieve something new in life.
You probably feel depressed or realize that you have spent a lot of effort on the case without getting anything in return. For the correct interpretation, you need to know all the nuances of sleep. For example, in a dream you can drown and not see anyone around, or there may be a lot of people around, or you are drowned in a dream intentionally. In each case, the interpretation of the dream will be different.
5. The Fall
Falling in a dream can not be considered a nightmare. After all, there is a "hypnagogic state", the so-called transition between wakefulness and sleep. During this state, we feel that we are falling and wake up from a frightened start, realizing that it was just a dream. But nightmares with falls indicate the presence of a fear of heights, the fear of losing control of the situation, and sometimes even the fear of death.
6. Tooth loss
If a person's teeth fall out in a dream, it means that he feels that he is not coping with the tasks assigned to him, or understands that he is not able to direct life in the right direction. Also, such nightmares speak of uncertainty in social life, about the fear of advertising incompetence in any business, or about the feeling of one's own unattractiveness. The interpretation depends on the events in a person's life.
7. Get lost
This nightmare can be seen at any age, but for children it is, of course, much scarier. When an adult dreams like this, it means that a person does not understand in which direction he should move and what decision should be made.
8. Fail the exam
A fairly common type of dreams. It indicates that a person is not ready for something, or has done an important thing, not as it should be. A person who feels a discrepancy with the place he occupies can fail the exam. To decipher it, you need to know the details.
9. Naked in a public place
This dream speaks of a feeling of defenselessness and vulnerability. A person is afraid that his secrets will become known to everyone, that he will not cope with the case, or will not be able to meet expectations.
Most often, this means that a person feels depressed because he is overtaken by something that he has avoided. Fear of not having time to do what is necessary. When interpreting such dreams, it is important to take into account emotions regarding the chase. If the chase did not cause unpleasant sensations. It can't be called a nightmare.
