Have you had these top 10 common nightmares?
Here's what they mean
Everyone has, at one point in their lives, woken up in a pool of sweat induced by the heart-pumping terror that only nightmares can stir. It’s a horrible way to reenter consciousness, and the feelings leave a strange residue in your body, but nightmares are still an essential part of dreaming. So why not learn a bit more about them?
We’re quick to analyze our fun dreams, whether they’re made of our desires or pleasures, but nightmares are cut from a different cloth altogether, made from all the stresses and anxieties lingering below. But, like dreams, nightmares aren’t easy to decipher.
Accepting the images at face value deprives you of a much deeper understanding of your subconscious, and nightmares tend to reflect inner feelings rather than outer situations anyway. Recurring nightmares can speak even more volumes, and exploring that recurrence with your fellow humankind can reveal many patterns and more connection between us than we ever imagined.
Check out this gallery to see the top 10 common nightmares people experience, and tips on how you can address the frightening feelings.
