Ever Felt Like You Were Drowning in a Dream? This is What it Means...

How many of you wake up from a dream that leaves you questioning reality? Trying to grasp hold of what happened in the dream and what it actually means? Well I quite often have dreams that leave me wondering, so in this blog I'm going to do a little digging to discover the hidden messages behind our common bedtime adventures, in collaboration with Adjustamatic who are currently running a 'Dreams Explained' campaign!

Death

If you've ever dreamt that you've died in a dream then you'll know it's pretty unpleasant but it may not be as bad as it seems... Although death is often perceived as negative, it’s often more directly related to dramatic change happening for the dreamer — the end of one thing, in order to make room for something new, this is how the Huffinton Post explains it.

Drowning

Similar to death, but slightly more specific, according to DreamHawk.com, dreaming about drowning can represent you feeling overwhelmed by difficult emotions or anxieties. Water and drowning often indicates you are facing unknown changes, but just remember that in dreams we can never die or get hurt...

Teeth Falling Out

I've experienced this sort of dream quite a few times, but not for a few years. While the dream itself is not nice, the meaning behind it actually symbolises change and/or the fear of losing something important as reported by TeethFallingOutDream.org (and with a URL like that they must know what they're talking about)


Being Chased

Another common dream is that of being chased, either by a monster, person, or by an unidentified being. As stated on DreamMoods.com being chased is usually your subconscious telling you that you're going for the 'flight' option rather than 'fighting' and confronting certain issues in your life. 

Test Taking Dreams

One more which I haven't experienced in a while, but I remember quite vividly from my University days were exam and test dreams.  The dream usually consists of the dreamer feeling anxious, unprepared or doubting how they will ever pass the exam - Not the best sense of confidence if you've got an upcoming test. DreamMoods.com explain this sort of dream to mean that you are quite simply feeling unprepared about something in your life.

Celebrity Related Dreams

This dream is listed as another common dream, and possibly a slightly more enjoyable dream compared to the ones discussed above. As stated on DreamBible.com it's impossible to have any exact meaning for people in your dreams, as we tend to perceive each other in completely different ways. Celebrities and famous people in your dream may also represent your thoughts and feelings about that particular celebrity. Maybe you are spending a lot of time thinking about that person in your everyday life which is why they've appeared in your dream. On the other hand, a celebrity may reflect an idea or situation which you feel is more important than anything else in your life.
