In the ancient times interpreting dreams was the job of shamans and the healers of the tribe. Now we have psychiatrists and mental health professionals to help you understand the dream symbols and the meaning of your dreams. However these messages of the subconscious can be really complicated, from time to time we have dreams about more common symbols that we can analyze and easily find out their meanings. These interpretations are not universal definitions, but they can act as general guidelines to define the personal meaning of your dream symbols.

Being Chased
One of the most commonly reported dream symbols, probably because the feeling of anxiety stays with us longer and we can easily recall these nightmarish scenes. It can symbolize a problem that has been hanging over your head and now came the time to finally face it.

Open water
Open water usually represents the unknown. It means that you can’t see the future clearly but and the weather conditions symbolize your feeling about the situation. Clear sky represents positive expectations, stormy weather means you have worries about the future.

Dreaming of a lover
Strangely dreaming of a lover usually tells more about ourselves than others. It represents the relationship with your own nature and symbolizes how you see yourself.

Dreaming of an old friend

School or classroom
If you find yourself in a school or in a classroom, often confronted with an unexpected test, then your dream wants to remind you to stay alert and don’t let things go out of your control. School often represents your job, so be prepared for challenges at your work.

Death of a loved one

Dark figures
