If you have been trying to find answers to this intriguing question, then we have found some answers to the most frequently asked questions related to “Dreaming” such as, “Do dreams have cryptic meanings?” and “Can you self-reflect on your desires by analyzing your dreams?” We are also going to list down some fun facts about dreams. Read the entire article to get a good idea of what dreams mean.
Sigmund Freud, a famous dream analyst, once said: “The dream is the (disguised) fulfilment of a (suppressed, repressed) wish.” According to what Freud proposed, dreams can be considered to be the guardian of sleep.
Analyzing the various symbols in our dreams and finding out the deeper meaning in it has become quite a popular genre in pop culture. It acts both as a source of self-reflection and entertainment to people. So, let’s try to analyze some common dreams such as dreams about falling, dream about snakes, etc. and analyze the hidden meanings in them.
Here we shall explain about 7 Different dreams types and their meaning:
Dreams about falling.
This is a very common dream that occurs to people. Dreams in which you are falling from a great height is quite common. One of the most well-accepted beliefs among people related to this form of dreams is that, if one hits the deck in one’s dream then one will pass away in reality- this is a myth.
According to most of the dream interpreters, falling dreams symbolize that something is not right in your life, and it suggests you reconsider some actions and take a new road in some areas of life.
- Dreams about Snake.
Dreams about snakes are also very common. This genre of dreams is the most diverse and has a large array of explanations to choose from. You need to ask a few questions to understand the dream thoroughly. “What type of encounter you had with the snake in the dream?”, “What type of snake was it?” etc.
If you are bitten by the snake in your dream it has a different meaning than a dream in which you killed a snake. Dreaming of a snake bite means that a “wake up call” is required in your life and it may act as a caution that you must pay close attention to the different threats you might have in your waking life. While a dream where you kill a snake may symbolize getting over your fears or temptations in your real life.
- Dreaming of a girl.
Ever heard of the word “Dream-Girl”, this doesn’t apply here! If you have a dream about a girl then most of the time the dream means that you have healthy connections with all the women in your life. In some instances, it may be connected to someone close to you.

Another common thing to dream about is death and is something which can be quite upsetting.

. Dream analysts say that public nudity can reflect that you have a fear of showing your imperfections.
- Dreams of desires (Sex Dreams).
The first thing one may assume by having a sex dream about someone is that you might want to sleep with the person. But it is not that simple and it can actually have a completely different meaning.
For starters, sex dreams can be the product of the feeling of being alone and lonely, longing for some sort of a human connection. Another interpretation that can be made is that the second person in that dream can be the one with whom you want to develop some emotional bonding and intimacy.
