Dreams and What They Means

The average person spends six years of her life dreaming. Whoa. A number of those are recurring dreams. You know, that one where you’re giving a presentation and you’re naked and Tommy Renato won’t stop staring at you? What’s that all about? Here are the supposed meanings behind nine common dreams.

YOU’RE NAKED

Might mean: Nakedness represents vulnerability, and dreams in which nudity is the main theme are most common during times of major life change, like when you start a new job or move in with a guy.

YOU’RE BEING CHASED

Might mean: Oh hey, avoider. Being chased in your dreams means that you’re probably not dealing with something you should definitely be dealing with. The avoidance causes stress, which translates to feeling like someone is hot on your trail.

YOU’RE FALLING

Might mean: This is probably one of two things: Either you’re feeling out of control or overwhelmed by something, or you’re hanging on too tightly to something that you should let go of or drop.

YOU’RE FLYING

Might mean: The opposite of falling, this signifies that you feel free and unburdened. Everything’s going your way, champ.

YOU’RE IN THE OCEAN

Might mean: Water represents emotions, and can be a positive or negative symbol in dreams. If the water is clear, you likely manage your emotions well. Murky water, on the other hand, could signify that you’re not so great at dealing with feelings.
