Dreams are a sequence of thoughts, memories, and emotions occurring in a person’s mind during sleep. There are so many beliefs surrounding dreams and their significance.
Here are 13 common dreams and their meanings that can help you understand why you may have certain dreams:
1. If You Are Dreaming Of Falling.
Feeling like you are falling in your dreams or seeing yourself fall in your dreams is a common dream for most people. It is believed that your subconscious tells you that you are losing control, you are in danger, and your anxiety is getting worse.
It also means you are afraid of failure, or you are about to make a life-altering decision or have made it already, and the result of your decision may not be exactly what you want.
The best way to handle this dream of falling is to work on your anxiety and fear. Try to take control of the things in your life that you can control. You can’t control other people’s actions and every area of your life. Still, you can control certain areas such as your meal opinions, gratitude level, and ability to make yourself smile irrespective of what others are doing around you, your standards, and who you hang around with e.t.c.
2. Running Away From Something Chasing You.
This dream indicates that you are either genuinely afraid of something, and your first instinct is to run for safety. You have a difficult, challenging issue to handle, but you are trying to run away from fixing the problem or are afraid of being vulnerable.
The best way to handle any scary situation is by going through it. If you are scared of someone, get the cops and your loved ones involve. Don’t wait until you can’t run away before you act. There is nothing wrong with been vulnerable. Vulnerability is a part of life that nobody can’t escape. Stay safe.
