10 Dream Symbols You Should Never Ignore

“Dreams are invariably seeking to express something that the ego does not know and does not understand.” – Carl Jung.

Carl Jung was a 19th century psychotherapist. He conducted a series
of studies and concluded that looking into dreams was opening a door
into consciousness and the spirit world.

Dreams are a reflection a person’s sub conscious. Reading into dreams
allows us to decode a person’s thoughts and repressed emotions. The
dominant emotions and feelings in a person’s sub conscious manifests
itself in the form of recurrent symbols in their dreams.

Here are 10 symbols common to dreams that you should never ignore:


If you see yourself flying in your dream you need to reach ambition.
Dreams of flying indicate excessive freedom and the urge to achieve and
accomplish everything on your way.


The symbol of water is usually related to purity and calmness. It is
considered extremely pious to dream about water. It signifies that the
water is washing out the old and paving way for something new and great.


Some dreams with teeth signify aging. Others however relate to stress
and anxiety. A dream about pulling out teeth denotes the need to come


Dreaming of death usually symbolizes the ending of something. But in
some cases dreams of death may also mean a loved one is trying to
connect with you.


Dreaming of being pregnant means some major growth is on your way. It is a symbol of development and fruitful desires.


Dreams of houses symbolize the self and its different aspects.
Dreaming about an attic indicates hidden memories while dreaming of a
basement indicates the intuition.


Dreams about money relate to one’s prosperity.

If you see yourself winning a huge sum of money then you’re on the
verge of a change in your lifestyle. If you dream of losing money it
symbolises your fear of losing money.

The lack of financial stability is one of the leading causes of stress in a person’s life. Money drives the flow of life.


Dreaming of adultery symbolises repressed sexual urges that demand to
be expressed. They may also result from a person’s lack of self-worth
or an unstable relationship.

Insecurity in any relationship may lead to such dreams.


Dreams of fire have several meanings depending on their context.
Seeing fire at a distance means possibilities and the desire for
transformation. But if you see yourself playing with fire it means a
warning for risky situations that are on their way. If you dream of
starting a fire it symbolises your repressed anger.


Dreams that centre on nudity or nakedness are pretty common. They
relate to one’s fear of being exposed. If in the dream one sees some
other person naked it mostly means their loss of respect. Such dreams
signify the “naked truth” being exposed. They also indicate the need to
accept flaws and imperfections.

If you often dream of being naked you’re probably afraid of showing the world your real self.

The dreams are our mind’s interpretation of what we see and feel when we are awake.
