What is the Meaning of Dreams?

Dream interpretation
is the process of assigning meaning to dreams. People appear to use motivated reasoning when interpreting their dreams. People appear to believe dreams are particularly meaningful. They assign more meaning to dreams than to similar waking thoughts. However, people do not attribute equal importance to all dreams. People appear to use motivated reasoning when interpreting their dreams. They are more likely to view dreams confirming their waking beliefs and desires to be more meaningful than dreams that contradict their waking beliefs and desires.


The Common Dream Symbols


Animal
Often represent the part of your psyche that feels connected to nature and survival. Being chased by a predator suggests you're holding back repressed emotions like fear or aggression.

Babies
Symbolize a literal desire to produce offspring, or your own vulnerability or need to feel loved. They can also signify a new start.

Being chase
One of the most common dream symbols in all cultures. It means you're feeling threatened, so reflect on who's chasing you (they may be symbolic) and why they're a possible threat in real life

Crosses
Interpreted subjectively depending on your religious beliefs. Some see it as symbolizing balance, death, or an end to a particular phase of life. The specific circumstances will help define them.

Death
A friend or loved one represents change (endings and new beginnings) and is not a psychic prediction of any kind. If you are recently bereaved, it may be an attempt to come to terms with the event.

Falling
Common dream symbol that relates to our anxieties about letting go, losing control, or somehow failing after a success.

Demon
Sneaky evil entities which signify repressed emotions. You may secretly feel the need to change your behaviors for the better.

Killing
In your dreams does not make you a closet murderer, it represents your desire to "kill" part of your own personality. It can also symbolize hostility towards a particular person.

Marriage
May be a literal desire to wed or a merging of the feminine and masculine parts of your psyche.

Missing a flight or any other kind of transport
A common dream, revealing frustration over missing important opportunities in life. It's most common when you're struggling to make a big decision.

Money
Symbolize self-worth. If you dream of exchanging money, it may show that you're anticipating some changes in your life.

Mountains
Are obstacles, so to dream of successfully climbing a mountain can reveal a true feeling of achievement. Viewing a landscape from atop a mountain can symbolize a life under review without conscious prejudice.

Roads
Aside from being literal manifestations, convey your direction in life. This may be time to question your current "life path".

Teeth
Are common dream symbols. Dreaming of losing your teeth may mark a fear of getting old and being unattractive to others

Water
Comes in many forms, symbolizing the unconscious mind. Calm pools of water reflect inner peace while a choppy ocean can suggest unease.
