No one truly knows why we dream, but many people are trying to gain a better understanding of what their dreams mean. Some people have even devoted their entire life to dream interpretation.
What we do know is that there is a significant relationship between a dreamer’s current state of mind versus dreams that occur at night (this is part of what my book on Directed Dreaming is about).
This is where an understanding of dream content and dream symbols would greatly aid dreamers in understanding what their night dreams are trying to tell them about their daily life.
At some point, it may seem like a number of dream types start to become familiar, and the dreamer finally gets the feeling that they (the dreams) are trying to tell them something. The most famous of which would be recurring dreams.
A dream which keeps getting experienced on a regular basis is pretty much what is known as a recurring dream, and is seen as a common dream event. Recurring dreams, as dream therapists and analysts have come to see them, are messages from the inner self (the subconscious) of a dreamer, telling him/her about something which needs to be addressed in the waking life.
Think of recurring dreams as a person who keeps on calling for your attention and won’t let you alone until you listen and deal with what is being said.
Here are two of the most common dream symbols that happen in most recurring dreams, and what the dreamer(s) did to resolve the issues.
Dreams about flying usually refer to a dreamer’s desire to be free, or to escape, from the situation they are with in waking reality. Recurring dreams of this type usually tell dreamers what their inner desires are, and are usually resolved by addressing the same desire to be free.
Unfortunately, escape and freedom from the things that bind people aren’t easily done. Recurring dreams about flying are simply indicators of one’s desire to be free. The most common steps dreamers take to acknowledge their wish for freedom is to adapt a new outlook towards what they see as their shackles, or start to make some small changes that will eventually get them out of their current situation.
Again, this is noted in a general sense, as not all situations are the same and equal with all others.
Dream content entailing the falling of teeth usually refers to a dreamer’s issue with not being heard or acknowledged in the waking world. As recurring dreams, they are somewhat disturbing, if not annoying. Studies have revealed that teeth falling dreams are common among shy people, who have issues related to work, particularly standing up to their bosses.
Dream therapists have suggested conversation enrichment programs for falling teeth dreamers, with the goal of arming dreamers with the skills needed to make their voices heard.
All in all, recurring dreams do have something to say regarding one’s self. If properly addressed, they could be maximized as personal markers, informing dreamers about what their problems are with the waking world, leading to happier, more content lives.
In the end, they are dreams which call for a dreamer’s attention, because what they have to say, needs to be heard if the dream is ever going to resolve important issues.
