Psychologist Explains the Meaning of These 9 Common Dreams

Did you know that dreams have a meaning? Sadly, many of us can’t even remember most of our dreams; although there are some moments when dreams are so vivid that you can almost recall every detail – and wish that these were true!

According to psychologist Ian Wallace who has interpreted over 150,000 dreams in his 30-year career as dream analyst, dreams are ‘messages’ from our subconscious mind. Dreaming happens during REM sleep.

Here are the 9 common dreams and their meanings:


Frequently dreaming about falling is your subconscious’ way of telling you to let go of someone, something, or some situation in your life that you are holding too tightly on.

Finding an unused room

If you find an unused room in your dream, then this could mean that you are on the verge of a new discovery. This new discovery could even mean a hidden talent that you can try to develop. Try examining your life to see what this might be.

Going unprepared to a speech, exam, or presentation

If you dream about going to a room totally unprepared for something such as an exam, a presentation, or a speech, then this could mean that you might be putting too much pressure on yourself. Relax. Stop worrying too much.


Dreams of flying are among the most amazing things because this is the way your subconscious tells you that you feel freedom or has recently been liberated from anxiety. This could also mean you are ready to take on new challenges.

Being trapped in an out-of-control vehicle

Ever dreamed of being trapped in an out-of-control vehicle? This could easily translate to you feeling helpless about your life or over a certain situation. Relax.

Being naked in public

Dreaming about being naked in public only means that you don’t have confidence in your own abilities and that you often feel vulnerable.

Finding no toilet even if you want to relieve yourself

When you dream about this, it could mean that you are feeling helpless in real life and that you don’t know how to express yourself.

Falling teeth

This could be a sign of failure or weakness because teeth symbolize confidence.

Getting chased

If you are always getting chased in your dreams, this could mean that there’s something you have to confront in real life.
