An average human being spends six hours of his or her life dreaming. Hardly anyone has been untouched by that side of their subconscious. And since dreaming is so common, we need to know what some of the most common dreams human beings experience are, and of course, what they mean too, right? Read on and find out. We are happy to help.   

1. Continuous Falling

If you experience falling, it’s primarily categorised in two ways – one, where you are falling out of fear and two, where you are falling out of joy. The first case represents anxiety and insecurity about a situation in your life, the second case represents that you don’t fear change in your life and are willing to happily embrace it.

2. Dying

Although, death, in its true-real is as negative as it can get, if you are experiencing it in your dreams, it actually means you subconsciously want to end something in your life: it could be a relationship, a job, or anything in your past. Experiencing death is not necessarily a nightmare. Rather, it is a dream meant to encourage a person to a fresh start.

    Flying is one the most common dreams people experience. It means someone or something in your life is stopping you from getting ahead in your life. There’s a force that’s not letting you move forward and is holding you back. However, if you are afraid during this dream, it means you are lacking self-confidence and have set unrealistic standards for yourself.

    4. Experiencing Paralysis

    Experiencing paralysis ranks a little lower in the common dreams list, but a lot of people do experience it often. This dream often represents that there is an overlap between the REM stage (the rapid eye movement stage that lasts around 10 minutes which usually happens after having been asleep at least 90 minutes) and the waking stage of sleep.

    6. Teeth Falling Out

    Another common dream that people repeatedly see is their teeth falling out. As scary as that sounds, it actually means you are anxious about your physical appearance. You might have a fear of rejection and hence, you dream this. Although, another school of thought says that for women, this dream is an example of wish-fulfillment and for men, it is a desire for sexual stimulation.

    11. When You See Spiders In Your Dream

    We all hate spiders, and more often than not, we refer to this dream as a nightmare. Experiencing a presence of spider around you in your dreams often mean that you feel like you’re not in control of your life. You experience exclusion by someone particular, or even a group of people in your life. It’s common to dream about spiders after you learn you’re being cheated on by a partner too.
