The meaning of dreams

We all have dreams and can often remember parts or images from them. Here is a guide to the meanings of the most common images that appear in dreams.
FALLING
This is one of the most common dream images, typically showing insecurity and anxiety. It may relate to fears that a career or relationship is coming to an end. The fact that we are not usually hurt when we land represents a hope that things won’t turn out too badly.
FLYING
This common dream – which usually involves flying under our own arm or leg power (rather than with any kind of engine) seems to represent a wish to escape from the problems we are facing in everyday life. It may also represent a wish to achieve greater power.
CASTLE
The castle represents strength and power. If dreamers are inside, they are safe. If they are looking at it, they may desire that safety. The castle is also sometimes the symbol of a woman.
DEATH
Death, particularly of someone close, points up mixed feelings of love and hostility. If dreamers see their own death, it may represent a desire to escape from pressure.
EXAMS
Anxiety drams are very common when something is worrying us. We are being put to the test. The mind remembers times in the past when we were nervous, and a common image is that of an exam for which we were badly prepared.
FIRE
Fire is naturally associated with passion and love, and, not surprisingly, with the dangers that go with them. In many cases it shows that the dreamer is both attracted to and afraid of passion.
STUCK FAST
Running forwards and not getting anywhere or trying to walk through water or honey is a common image in dreams. It symbolises a conflict of feelings, particularly the desire to escape, yet at the same time, not to escape.
MOUNTAINS
These represent obstacles and difficulties which dreamers feel they have to overcome. If the dreamers keep on climbing without getting anywhere, it could be that are chasing goals that they cannot hope to achieve.
