What does it mean when you have nightmares? If you’ve ever woken up in a cold sweat, you know how confusing and disorienting some dreams can be. “What happened?” one might ask. “Why do I dream of being chased?” “Why do I keep having dreams about being naked in public?” “Why do I keep having the nightmare of my teeth falling out?” Dream meaning theories can come from psychoanalytical traditions, like that of Sigmund Freud, from modern scientific explanations, from surveys and studies of sleeping people, or from folklore, but all may tell you their own dream interpretation. Answers don’t necessarily come only from introspection, as the meaning of dreams that look at the deep psyche may not be focused on the tangible reality. For instance, what does it mean when you dream about someone dying? For many who study dream translation, it may mean you’re anticipating big changes; for scientists who study the bereavement process, it’s a necessary step of grieving. So what do nightmares mean? A dream of falling could mean you’re suffering from a sense of failure or that you’re experiencing the common hypnic jerk. Check out our top 11 scary dream meanings to translate your nightmare! Don’t stress, though, if the nightmare meaning for the psyche doesn’t make sense for you. It’s all open to interpretation, after all.
