I saw a conversation online where people were talking about things... in dreams... which are TERRIFYING. Like, they scare the CRAP out of you. So, here are some dreams which freak people out... but here are some dreams which people have which people are totally afraid of having.
Can you relate to any of these nightmares?
· The one when your teeth are falling out
· The dream when you’re naked in front of a crowd
· The dream where you are levitating
· The one where an animal or clown is chasing you
· The drowning dream
· Being late to an important event like your wedding
· When you’re injured and can’t find help
· Dreaming your house is on fire and you can’t get out
DREAMING OF LOSING YOUR TEETH? HERE ARE 13 REASONS WHY YOU ARE HAVING THESE DREAMS...
1. You've Been Struggling With An Inferiority Complex
If you've been feeling embarrassed and/or inferior lately and it's been taking a toll on your self-esteem, it could show up in the form of dental-related dreams, says shamanic practitioner Khi Armand. "Teeth falling out in a dream is often a sign [for] loss of personal power, whether it is being actively given away or lost through misdealing’s with others in our lives," he tells Bustle.
2. You're Worried About Saying The Wrong Thing
Ever have a dream where you spit out a bunch of teeth into your hand or pluck out your loose teeth one by one? That could be a sign that you fear saying something embarrassing — literally "spitting out" the wrong thing, says counselor and hypnotherapist Susan Leigh.
3. You're Not Feeling Great About Your Appearance
Since a clean smile is often closely tied to attractiveness, it makes sense that dreams about rotting teeth may point to self-esteem issues or reveal an underlying worry that you somehow don't measure up. "Your smile is indicative of how you are able to face the world," says Tracee Dunblazier, a spiritual empath and author. And one that is imperfect in a dream — or literally falling apart — can certainly reflect how you're feeling.
4. You're Concerned About What Others Think Of You
Just like a teeth falling out dream can indicate that you don’t like how you look on the outside, it can also signal that you don’t like who you are on the inside, says Loewenberg. If you feel super embarrassed about your appearance in dreamland but generally feel good about how you look during waking hours, then she recommends turning inward. Is there something about your character that is causing you to feel insecure?
5. The Thought Of Getting Older Scares You
Teeth aren’t just connected to your appearance in the present — they're also strongly associated with aging, which is why you may find yourself having this dream if you’ve been thinking about getting older. "People, as they age, tend to spend more time and resources on their teeth," Dunblazier tells Bustle, and that concern can transfer to your subconscious. If you have a big birthday coming up or are worried about getting older, toothy dreams may follow.
6. Money Issues Are Stressing You Out
Money has a way of making people feel secure, so a lack of it can really prey on your subconscious, says Lisa Allen, MH, an astrology expert. "Our teeth are a very strong part of our body structure. We feel safe when we have something to proverbially sink our teeth into," she tells Bustle.
7. You’re Stressed About The Dentist
Dentists are notorious for shaming their patients into flossing more often or brushing more regularly. That is their job, after all. But if yours recently made you feel bad about your dental health or you’re dreading an upcoming appointment, Betancourt says that worry might show up in your dream. (Yes, sometimes dreams can be that literal.)
8. You Have A Big Decision Coming Up
Are you feeling stressed or indecisive about an impending major life decision? Dreams about teeth falling out can follow, says Dunblazier. Just like your mouth is letting your teeth go, these dreams may be your subconscious telling you to let go of any obstacles that are getting in the way of you tackling that decision, she explains. The solution? "Look to the current conflict or struggles in waking life to see where making a decision is beneficial,” she tells Bustle.
9. You Regret Something You Said
Teeth dreams are commonly symbolic of your daytime communication, says Loewenberg. “Any dream that focuses on the mouth, lips, tongue, teeth, or the throat area will most often be connected to some kind of communication issue in your waking life,” she tells Bustle. “The reason why it's so common is because it's connected to a recurring behavior pattern, like saying something without thinking about it first or allowing something out of your mouth that shouldn't have come out, like your teeth.”
10. You're Having Trouble Sharing Your Thoughts
While dreams about your teeth falling out can signal that you’ve said too much, sometimes the opposite is true as well, says Annette Goggio, MPH, EEMCP, an energy medicine expert. These nightmares could indicate that you've been mulling over an issue — literally "chewing on a problem" — but haven’t taken action yet. Once teeth dreams enter the picture, it's a sign that you need to deal with whatever's bugging you so you can sleep more peacefully at night, she says.
11. You're About To Make A Major Life Change
Major life changes and the feeling of time moving on can also trigger teeth dreams, says Leigh. Are you about to make a big move or start a new job? Then don't be surprised if you fall asleep and dream about all your teeth falling out, she says. That symbolic change in appearance could be a proxy for change in your waking life.
12. You’re Being Too Picky
Having something stuck in your teeth is as nightmarish in your dreams as it is in real life. And it can symbolize more than what you ate for lunch — Loewenberg says that having dreams where you pick at something that’s gotten trapped in your teeth could be your subconscious warning you that you’re getting too nitpicky in waking life. Perhaps you’re always trying to control people around you, or maybe you’re constantly ragging on your own appearance. Regardless, literally picking at something in your dreams could be a signal that you need to take it easy on figuratively doing it in real life.
13. You Feel Weak
Ever had a dream that your teeth shattered or cracked apart? This could be a sign that you didn’t communicate something as strongly as you wished, says Loewenberg. “Things crack and fall apart when they're weak,” she tells Bustle. “So you'll get this dream when perhaps you don't feel like you held up your end of an argument, when you didn't make your points strong enough, or when there were cracks in your story, so to speak.”
