Dreamology is a vast subject and  many people across the world are boggling their mind to understand the symbols of dreams and the inner meanings behind this.

Here we will elaborate a few of common dream symbols which come regularly in our dream but we are unable to understand their inner symbolical meanings:

Dreaming animals : It often represent the part of your psyche that feels connected to nature and survival. While being chased by a predator suggests you are holding back repressed emotions like fear or aggression.
When you see a snake in your dream that means you are going to be a wealthy person or may be you will get the news of a new birth in family.


Seeing babies: This can symbolise a literal desire to produce offspring, or your own vulnerability or need to feel loved. Babies can also signify a new beginning of your life.

 Being chased: One of the most common dream symbols in all cultures is being chased, which mean that you're feeling threatened, so reflect on who is chasing you (they may be symbolic) and where are those?

Exams: All of us might agreed that they all have dreamt about examinations. Seeing such dream can signify self-evaluation, with the content of the exam reflecting the part of your personality or life under inspection.

Money and Mountain: While money can symbolise self worth and anticipating some changes in life, mountains suggest some obstacles. So to dream of successfully climbing a mountain can reveal a true feeling of achievement and viewing a landscape from atop a mountain symbolise a life under review without conscious prejudice.


Death : If you are seeing the death of a friend or loved one, that represents change (endings and new beginnings) and is not a psychic prediction of any kind.

Falling: Falling is a common dream symbol that relates to one's anxieties about letting go, losing control, or somehow failing after a success.

Food: Dreaming about food is said to symbolise knowledge, as it nourishes the body just as information nourishes the brain. However, it could just be food.

Houses:  If you are dreaming about houses that can host many common dream symbols, but the building as a whole represents your inner psyche. Room or floor can symbolise different emotions, memories and interpretations of meaningful events!

Killing and Marriage: All of us at least once woke up in the mid night in a sweat body seeing a murder in their dream. Interestingly, it represents your desire to "kill" part of your own personality. And dreaming of marriage has  a literal desire to wed or a merging of the feminine and masculine parts of your psyche, according to dreamologists.

Being trapped  is a common nightmare theme, reflecting your real life inability to escape or make the right choice for life.

Schools are common dream symbols for children and teenagers but what about dreaming of school in adulthood? It may display a need to know and understand yourself, fueled by life's own lessons.
