Thankful Confidence

Thankful Confidence

Fewer dreams speak in a more poignant way than those you seem to have experienced. While most dreams tend to mean different things depending on the individual - Your positive energy in daily life has carried over and clearly expressed itself through your lofty, sometimes euphoric dreams. Something in life has you feeling especially thankful at the moment, and has helped boost your self-confidence. Positive dreaming such as soaring across landscapes, pleasant laughing, and the recurrence of individuals you are fond of are all indicators of being not only content, but genuinely happy with your current self. This is a truly rare state-of-being, one that is only achieved through perseverance and coming to terms not only with the good in life, but with the bad as well. It's all about balance!

Moving On & Letting Go

Moving On & Letting Go

Most associate the act of moving on, or letting go of something, as a negative act - but your dreams seem to be indicating this in a positive manner. Some of your most vivid dreams typically include falling, but not in an aggressive or fleeting manner - think of it as more of a floating state. Important events from the past (such as a graduation, or even funeral) can resurface within dreams to help encourage you to let go of whatever has been holding you down and speed the process of moving forward. If you can think of something or someone immediately off hand that you may need to let go of, consider your dreams confirmation of this and make it so!

Hesitance & Courage Building

Hesitance & Courage Building

Whether subconsciously or in everyday life, something is changing within your world and your dreams are trying their hardest to prepare you. Recurring dreams of threatening animals (such as snakes or spiders) show hesitance to act or commit - And more lucid dreams of traveling, escapism, and even babies are all indicators that you may not want to accept whatever it is that may be undergoing change. You may not even be conscious of what is different - yet - but pay attention to these dreams and patterns in the day-to-day. Soon change will become evident, as will your courage and course of action.

Something Has You Stressing

Something Has You Stressing

Whether it's a specific individual, work, or even something you may have done yourself - Your dreams are desperately trying to bring whatever is stressing you out to the foreground. Recurring dreams of being chased are a major indicator that you are actively running from something, or have a habit of bottling up problems instead of dealing with them head-on. Other indicators of daily stress include (for most) school/test based dreams, paralysis within dreaming, and even sexual encounters. An extremely common dream is the experience of losing teeth, which can indicate insecurities with everything from money to self-image. Do not take this negatively, instead listen to your dreams and conquer this stress for the betterment of yourself! Dreams of this type are not only an indicator of said stress, but also of a person's strength to finally step up and overcome.

Unclear Emotional States

Unclear Emotional States

Whether its you personally or an individual close to you, your dreams are attempting to make sense of muddled emotions. Dreams of houses, whether yours or completely imagined, and occupying specific places within a house can be strong indicators of emotional state - Especially when the specific room one is occupying is taken into consideration (kitchen, bedroom, even basements, etc.). Our minds tend to associate water most with unclear emotional states. If you have experienced water within your dreams, the color, clarity, and even depth can do a lot to tell you not only the severity of your emotional distress, but where it stems from as well. Consider working through any problems you may be having in a prominent relationship, or evaluating where you stand in said relationships personally.

Longing For The Past

Longing For The Past

Dreaming, for you, seems to be just as much about remembrance as it is guidance. For most, dreams prepare an individual to face what is happening within their conscious life. While this is still true for you, your dreams seem to be focusing on a time in your life since past, or perhaps a person you actively miss - even if you are not aware of it. The word "longing" has an unnecessarily negative stigma about it, but can be applied to your subconscious in many different ways - not just negatively. Recurring dreams of youth, vacations, deceased relatives, past lovers, and even school can all be your dreams informing you of something (or someone) you feel drawn to, or even incomplete without. Take these dreams as an active sign to conquer said longing and move forward in life!
