For as long as visions have existed, people have been trying to figure out what they mean. Oneirology is a branch of dream research that has become popular in recent years. Many who favor the esoteric side of things over science enjoy using different dream books to decode their visions and assume that they can forecast the future. However, psychologists believe that dreams correctly represent our present state of mind and that our subconscious sometimes attempts to communicate with us by dreams. We’ve discovered that we all have similar visions. Every once in a while, we all have these kinds of visions. Our primitive desires, a cultural code, our ancestors’ history, and personal experience all contribute to these visions. “Like a hearty stew rich with local produce, the universal dreams vary among various cultures, but they are all nourishing versions of the same wholesome meal,” Patricia Garfield, a psychologist and specialist in the field of dreams, describes them as “universal dreams.” They’re as ancient as humanity, and they’re as ubiquitous as the world.”
1. Teeth that fall out, injuries, and death
Teeth are seen as a shield, a sign of courage, and the power to “bite off” a slice of the universe by our subconscious. Penney Peirce describes it this way: “Maybe, you’ve lately felt unarmed and vulnerable in the real world.” Patricia Garfield, a long-time dream researcher, believes that dreams of teeth falling out are linked to unresolved rage. When we want to control our indignation, we usually clench our jaws, which causes our teeth to creak and grind. This dream could indicate that it’s past time to let go of negative emotions. Dreams of someone close to us being injured, sick, or dying are common. Those hallucinations are disturbing, but from the perspective of psychology, it isn’t that grim. It’s basically our apprehensions about the future and the imminent changes that will occur in our relationships. If you see yourself fading, it means that a part of you is dying and living in the past in order to make way for something better. When something different is happening in a person’s life (such as a new work or project), “opposite” visions of birth and recovery usually occur, symbolizing a new experience.
It’s not just women who may have pregnancy hallucinations, as weird as it might seem. “Pregnancy symbolizes something different emerging inside us,” says David Bedrick, a psychologist. You have a subconscious dream of “conceiving” a new exciting artistic idea. That could be anything from writing a novel to home renovation. It’s time to set a target and demonstrate to the world that you’re capable of taking on this new job. If you’re not pregnant in real life, you may be looking for meaning after having a dream like this.
3. An unidentified room
Fresh room dreams are about self-awareness. If you dream of being in an unfamiliar house, it means you don’t know yourself well and are trying to ignore any aspects of your personality. A strange room signifies that you have a latent ability, abilities, or potential that you are not using.
Eddie Traversa, a psychotherapist, believes that we subconsciously equate those rooms with specific processes. A kitchen is a place where ingredients are turned into a finished meal, so you’re going through some internal improvements right now. A bathroom is a sign of removing unwanted baggage from one’s life. It might be a sign that it’s time to get rid of something that’s no longer wanted. A bathroom is a sign of cleansing, and it indicates that you are compelled to explain or see things in a new way. A bedroom represents the issues that you are concerned about within your intimate relationship.
In adulthood, we see more people falling than soaring. A dream of falling, according to psychologist Ian Wallace, represents the fear of losing control. You can’t control anything in your life anymore because dramatic changes occurred in your life that you weren’t prepared for. Consider which aspects of your life (work, partnerships, finances, wellbeing, etc.) you feel most suppressed or insecure in, as well as possible solutions. Basic physiology is used by some psychologists to describe dreaming of falling. The nerve system begins to slow down when you fall asleep, your blood pressure and heart rate drop, and your falling asleep brain (especially if it was overworked during the day) interpret this physiological transition as threat or impending death, causing you to wake up abruptly.
