This Is What Your Dreams Really Mean

Ella Morley

Dreams are fascinating. There is no doubt about that. You can travel to the furthest corners of the earth and meet the strangest of creatures, all while staying in your bedroom.

There are many dream dictionaries online that suggest you can analyse your dream meanings. If you are confused about a dream you have had, it can be fun to look it up and see the different interpretations of its meaning. Some symbols within your dream may strike you as very outlandish while others might be more frequent such as the ones below.

The Most Common Dream Meanings


Falling in a dream can be a sign that you feel out of control in your life. You may be feeling overwhelmed and anxious during your waking hours. Falling is one of the most common symbols in dreams, so you are not alone in having it.

Being chased

Being chased in a dream can signify that there are things in your life that you need to face up to. You are avoiding these issues rather than tackling them head on. This could be because you are afraid of failure and your brain is telling you to just give it a shot.

Taking a test

To take a test in a dream can often signify exam stress, especially if you are in school or college. However, if you are not a student it may indicate a feeling of foreboding in your working life. Failing a test in your dream often stands for insecurity that you may be experiencing in your day-to-day life.


Flying in a dream is often full of positivity. What’s more, the feeling of doing so in a dream is thrilling.  A sense of liberty is mainly associated with this dream. Where once in your daily life you might have felt restrained, you now feel free according to the interpretation of this symbol.

Your teeth are falling out

Having your teeth fall out during a dream is not a pleasant feeling and is certainly a scary experience. Sometimes this dream can reference a sense of helplessness in your life, while other times it can represent a loss whether that be of communication, money or ageing.

A snake in your dream can represent an underlying feeling of fear or panic. Depending on where you see the snake, you may be able to figure out a possible explanation. For instance, if the snake is under water you may be letting your emotions control you and your brain might be telling you to be wary of this.


Anyone we have met in the past or seen in the media has a chance of appearing in our dreams. This can of course include celebrities and other famous people photographed in magazines and newspapers. This may be because you see a part of yourself in them such as humour or grace.


A dream where you are driving is a very good sign according to many interpretations. You feel ready for the future and know the direction you are heading in. However, losing control of the car in your dream may signify the opposite. While driving at night-time may hint that you are unhappy with how your life is unfolding at the minute.
