Everyone dreams at night, although not everyone remembers in the morning and even fewer people give it the meaning it corresponds to. There are even people who believe that dreams are simply dreams and that they are not important in life … But in reality, dreams are necessary to maintain good physical and emotional health. The brain needs to dream to learn , recover, and cope with life.

As if that were not enough, on many occasions dreams have meaning and there are some dreams that are repeated in all people, that is, they are common dreams . It is possible that these dreams have a deeper meaning … they can reveal unconscious desires. The famous psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud described dreams as the royal road to the unconscious and suggested that by studying the content of dreams, the hidden and unconscious desires that lead to neurosis could be revealed.

Analyzing dream symbols and attributing meanings has become a popular source of entertainment and self-reflection in popular culture. Do dreams really have hidden meanings? Can you learn your unconscious wishes and desires by interpreting your dreams? There are some common dreams in people and below you are going to discover what their accepted meanings are.

Falling from a great height

Dreaming that you fall from a great height is quite common. There is a myth that says that if you die in a dream, you die in real life and that is why before hitting the ground you wake up … this is not true. But what does this kind of dream mean? In principle, when you fall into a dream from a great height, it is a signal sent by your subconscious that there is something in your life that is not going well.

You may have to think twice about taking a direction in your life or considering other choices. It can be a fear of real life, of failing at work or in love life. It can mean the need to let go and enjoy life more, without so much stress.

Being naked in front of other people

Have you ever dreamed that you are naked in front of many people? This happens when you feel false with other people or that you are afraid to show yourself as you really are to others, perhaps, for fear of rejection. Do not be afraid to show your imperfections or defects, those who really love you will do so as long as it is you.

You chase

Perhaps you have ever dreamed of being chased and this can be very scary. This actually means that you are trying to avoid something in your daily life. You may want to escape your own fears or desires. If your pursuer is a mysterious and unknown figure, it could represent a childhood experience or past trauma. If you are being chased by someone of the opposite sex , it may be that you are afraid of love or are being chased by a past relationship.

Do your teeth drop

This know is very common and can have many meanings. It could mean that you are overly concerned about your appearance or that you are concerned about your ability to communicate with others. Perhaps you have said something that has caused you embarrassment.

The true essence of teeth is your ability to bite, cut, tear and grind …. If your teeth fall out, you lose personal power and your ability to be assertive, decisive and self-protective.


Death is another common theme in dreams and it can be very disconcerting since death is the great fear par excellence of humanity. You can dream of the death of a loved one or that you die yourself. The popular interpretation of these dreams is the reflection of anxiety before change or fear of the unknown.

The death of a loved one can also reflect the fear of change, especially when it comes to children when they are growing up. These changes may indicate that children ask developmental questions that are difficult to find the answer. Dreams of dying or death can reflect a kind of mourning for the inevitable passage of time.

Take an exam

Taking an exam is also a common dream in people, but it is still more common in students of any age. Exams are stressful experiences in which you show in dreams to face deficiencies. Dreaming of failing an exam, being late for one or not being prepared shows that you are not prepared for the challenges of real life and you must put more effort into it in order to be successful.


Dreaming that your partner is unfaithful or that you are unfaithful to your partner can be a distressing experience, even if it is a dream. In some cases, people even begin to wonder if the dream could really be true.  Does dreaming that your partner is unfaithful mean that it could happen? Or what is already happening?

Although, in some cases, such dreams can be the reflection of fears of infidelity, these dreams do not mean that your partner is really being unfaithful or that he will be in the future, they do not have to have a real or premonitory character.

Dreams about infidelity indicate trust, loyalty and communication issues in a relationship. If you or your partner were unfaithful in a dream, then either of you is going through a bad time in the relationship.

To fly

Dreams of flying can be exciting and even liberating, but they can be quite scary at times (especially for those who fear heights). Flying in dreams often represent two very different sides. On the one hand, such dreams can represent feelings of freedom and independence. On the other hand, they can also indicate a desire to flee or escape the realities of life.

At times, flying can also involve feelings of pleasure so it can also represent sexuality. Especially in aspects of freedom in social norms and restrictions.

Have you had any of these dreams lately? Do you think the meanings they have are directly related to your life?
