Common Dream Symbols
Animals often represent the part of your psyche that feels connected to nature and survival. Being chased by a predator suggests you're holding back repressed emotions like fear or aggression.
Being chased 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.
Exams can signify self-evaluation, with the content of the exam reflecting the part of your personality or life under inspection.
Death of a friend or 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.
Falling is a common dream symbol that relates to our anxieties about letting go, losing control, or somehow failing after a success.
Missing a flight or any other kind of transport is another common dream, revealing frustration over missing important opportunities in life. It's most common when you're struggling to make a big decision.
People (other dream characters) are reflections of your own psyche, and may demonstrate specific aspects of your own personality.
Schools are common dream symbols in children and teenagers but what about dreaming of school in adulthood? It may display a need to know and understand yourself, fueled by life's own lessons.
Teachers, aside from being literal manifestations of people, can represent authority figures with the power to enlighten you.
Teeth are common dream symbols. Dreaming of losing your teeth may mark a fear of getting old and being unattractive to others.
Being trapped (physically) is a common nightmare theme, reflecting your real life inability to escape or make the right choice.
