Statistics reveal the fact that we spend almost 1/3 of our life sleeping and dreaming. “A waste of time”, you may think. What is worse is that 90% of the dream that we supposedly had is lost in the first minute we wake up. However, we manage to remember that 10%, sometimes in terms of images, other times in terms of intensity of feelings. In any case, it seems that some dreams are common and we all get to share at least one of them with everybody else.
The Classic Nude Dream
You’re “waking up” in our dream, standing in the middle of the classroom… completely naked! Ironically, this dream may indicate that you’re a bit full of yourself in reality. The dream was you’re naked or barely dressed up doesn’t incline to a sexual meaning; it is just a sign from your subcontinent that tells you “stop being so overconfident”. However, if you have a dream of yourself naked but wearing an evident accessory, this may mean that you’re a shy person in real life that feels the need to draw attention from someone or from a group of people.
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Spiders build up complicated spider webs in order to capture their prey. They are associated with the idea of manipulation, therefore, their appearance in a dream may indicate that the one who has the dream is feeling manipulated in reality or, on the contrary, it is he that manipulates. If someone has experienced a spider dream, the question is “Is someone trying to influence me in a certain way or am I the one who does this with the people around me?”

However, if the person has a dream of himself taken away by a wave, it may indicate that his overwhelmed by the change he’s undertaking, as this transition may cause him feelings of fear and anxiety.
When you’re falling
Falling in a dream actually has a scientific explanation: while we’re submerging in our dream, our nervous system relaxes, the rhythm of our heart lowers down and these physical changes that help as fall asleep may cause us to experience a falling dream. However, some people have falling dreams more frequently than others. Why is this? One reason may be because they are worried about losing control, as falling indicated a loss of direction.
When your teeth are falling out
Experts in psychology indicate that dreaming about your teeth falling out may indicate that you’re experiencing emotional issues. Going to the roots of the problem, when teeth fall out, your brain thinks about survival issues generated by the incapacity of feeding yourself. Following the same logic, losing a tooth in your dream may reveal the fact that you’re afraid of losing something essential in your life on which you physically or emotional depend on.
