7 Common Dreams And Their Western Meaning
The content and purpose of dreams are not definitively understood, but they are basically stories and images our mind creates while we sleep. They can be vivid. They can make you feel happy, sad, or scared. Here are 7 common dreams and their western interpretation
1. Being Chased
This is one of the most common dream symbols in all cultures. It means you’re feeling threatened, so reflect on who’s chasing you (they may be symbolic) and why they’re a possible threat in real life..
2. Death Of A Friend or Loved One
Dreaming about the death of a loved one represents change (endings and new beginnings) and is not a psychic prediction of any kind. If you are recently bereaved, it may be an attempt to come to terms with the event.
Food is said to symbolize knowledge, because it nourishes the body just as information nourishes the brain. However, it could just be food.
Demons are sneaky evil entities which signify repressed emotions. You may secretly feel the need to change your behaviors for the better.
Dreaming about Marriage may be a literal desire to wed or a merging of the feminine and masculine parts of your psyche.
Sex dreams can symbolize intimacy and a literal desire for sex. Or they may demonstrate the unification of unconscious emotions with conscious recognition, showing a new awareness and personal growth.
Flying in a dream symbolize a literal desire to explore oneself, to escape.
