We all know that our dreams, even the most random ones, have meaning behind them. And while some are unknown or open to interpretation, the most common dreams have been studied, and their significance is known.
So take a look at these, eight of the most common dreams people have, and see what they say about you.
We dream of being chased when we’re in situations that are emotionally dangerous. Dreaming of this situation is actually a helpful way of letting us know that, even if it’s not immediately obvious.
If a stranger is chasing you, it might be because you require clarity. Or it could be the manifestation of a situation that’s a secret or you feel guilty about.
Often, it’s a situation that you’re putting off dealing with, and the reality of it is hounding you.
Stressful Test Taking
Expert Craig Hamilton-Parker says, dreaming of test-taking means “you’re having feelings of lack of self worth again, you’re having feelings that you may not be up to the job.”
This could be at school (an obvious parallel) or at work or even in a relationship. Developing confidence in your abilities or raising your level of achievement can put these dreams behind you.
Many feel this is the most frequent dream that people have. Falling in a dream means you’ve lost control over a situation through neglect.
Again, the thing you’re neglecting isn’t specified. It could be work, love, or professional.
Strangely, it’s not always a bad thing. If you feel at peace while falling, it could mean that an uncontrollable change is helping you for the better!
Showing up late is a dream that often occurs when you’re feeling flooded with responsibilities.
You could be missing a big part of your life because you’re not managing your time well.
To that end, this is one of the more literal dream translations out there.
