Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?
~Leonardo da Vinci
This profound thought by Leonardo da Vinci alone tells us about the importance of dreams. There is no getting away from them, and why try in the first place? Dreams are what happens to you in your subconscious state. Let is try to understand what the most common dreams means and how they might affect our lives.
Being Chased: If you’re running very fast and someone or something is chasing you and you cannot get past, you’re having problem leaving your past troubles behind. It could be an ugly relationship or an office problem. What you should really be doing is that you should try to shake off whatever there is in the past because the dream suggests that it is a part of your life that you don’t need anymore.
Unprepared for an exam: You see yourself back in school sitting for an exam but you have done absolutely no preparations at all. You may even recall that you forgot which books to buy. In life, you are probably looking at the face of a difficult situation and you’re doubting your competence. If the situation has passed, you’re possibly just nervous for the results. You should immediately induilge in some activity that keeps your mind off the situation. If the problem persists, it can lead to serious health problems.
Falling: You may sometimes see yourself falling indefinitely. Sometimes, the jolt of the hit might wake you up. Anxiety is to blame for this kind of fall. The fall is divided into 2 parts, scientifically – the slip and the twitch. Muscles contract during the slip and relax during the twitch. This is again not a great sign for physical activity.
Being late: You had a very strict deadline but can’t make it. What do you make of such a dream? There is an actual milestone that you’re approaching in life and you might be missing the deadline. The dream is a reminder to you to hurry up!
Naked in public: You might see yourself naked sometimes and you cannot do anything about it. However, nobody else is really interested. This means you’re feeling out of place somewhere and you’re very helpless. Think about such a place and you might want to get out of there.
Dreams have bigger meanings than what we already know. We might know some things subconsciously and that is what dreams tell us.
