One More Chapter
A twenty two year-old's view on life, death,
and Taylor Swift conspiracy theories
and Taylor Swift conspiracy theories
I have heard so many stories about what dreams mean and how they can tell you a lot about yourself and possibly even tell you something about your future. Now, I'm not completely sure that actually believe all of this, but it is rather interesting to consider.
There are a few dreams I have fairly often, or that I used to have fairly often.
So I took the time to see what that magical thing called "The Internet" has to tell me about these dreams.
Teeth Falling Out
This is a dream I have ALL THE TIME.I have since I was a kid, and it still freaks me out.
It always happens the same way: I walk into the bathroom at my dad's house and turn on the light (which is always too bright and florescent, making it hard to see everything clearly). Then when I turn to the mirror and make sure I look ok, I feel one tooth become loose.
I pull it out, which feels extremely realistic, and stare at it in my palm. Suddenly the rest of my teeth feel slightly wiggly as well. When I run my tongue along them they slowly become looser and looser and begin to pop out of my mouth. I can't close my mouth because it will push all my teeth completely out of my mouth.
It is the most realistic dream I have ever, and probably will ever, have. It's absolutely horrifying, though there is no blood at all.
I looked up what this dream could possibly mean, and as it turns out this dream is rather common among people.
Apparently it could mean multiple things. I have heard it could mean you are afraid of death, which I would say is a fair assumption considering Death is a very scary thing. I have also heard that it could mean you are close to death. I hope this is not true.
Some other interpretations say that this dream is trying to tell you that you are lacking in confidence in your physical appearance. Once again I completely buy this assumption for I have horrible self-esteem. It is also said this it could be due to a feeling of powerlessness or due to anxiety brought on my something in your life.
Whatever the case may be, I hate the dream. And even now, in the waking world, I can still remember the awful sensation of all my teeth crumbling out of my mouth. It's disgusting.
Have any of you had this dream before?
There was a long period of time during which I had the same dream over and over about the same house. In the dream it was my own house (as in I owned it in the dream, it was not my actually house in real life). Every time it started the same:
I would be walking down the street to the house - it was on the street that I lived on in real life and was where my neighbors lived, but it didn't look anything like my neighbors' house - and casually enter the house.
It would open up to a beautiful parlor which always had the same Christmas tree, which was odd because when I was walking on the street the weather was very pleasant and seemed to be summer.
The dream would just be me walking through the house. It was always empty and I never recall every meeting anyone else in the house, but it was so detailed. I remember every aspect of the house even to this day. And that was all the dream was. I would walk down the street, walk through the house, then wake up. I never said anything and I never met anyone. Now that I think about the silence of the dream, it seems rather creepy, but in the moment it felt comforting and pleasant.
I found this article on what dreams about houses represent and tell you: http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamthemes/house.htm
It says that a dream centering around a house is self-reflexive, and that each room is representative to certain aspects of your psyche. It also says that if you are alone in the house that it suggests feelings of insecurity (wow, that's another symbol of insecurity....) It's rather interesting and I suggest you take a look.
Has anyone else had a similar dream?
I have had other reoccurring dreams as well, but none of which I think I will be able to find answers for online. Though I'd still be rather interested in knowing what they mean.
Leave a comment telling of some of your own interesting dreams!
