Most of us have had that dream. You know, the one where you’re being chased by someone you may or may not know. You’re likely running at full speed until you realize you’ve run right off a cliff. You scream, but nothing comes out, and suddenly, wake up in a pool of sweat. But what did it mean?

The subject of dream interpretation has been of interest for many years, and for good reason. Understanding the deeper meaning of dreams can help us realize how we feel and think, which can be good for providing personal insight. (KENDRA, 2024)

“Dreams are the time in our life when we’re creating new neural connections and processing the experiences we’ve had in our waking life.” -JESSE LYON

Understanding Dream Interpretations

Famed psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud described dreams as the “royal road” to the unconscious and suggested that by studying the obvious content of dreams, we could bring to light the hidden and unconscious desires that lead to neurosis.

Analyzing dream symbols and ascribing meaning to them has become a source of both entertainment and self-reflection in popular culture. Do dreams mean anything? Can you learn your unconscious wishes and desires by interpreting your dreams?  (KENDRA, 2024)

  • Falling in your dreams

    The interpretations for this type of dream center around feelings of fear and vulnerability. Falling in your dreams can also indicate feelings of helplessness and being overwhelmed. It’s also possible that dreaming of falls can be seen as a warning from your subconscious to be careful. If a situation causes a loss of control, this can be translated as a fall when dreaming.

  • Being chased in your dreams

    Feelings of stress and anxiety are the primary cause of being chased while dreaming. If someone is feeling threatened in their waking life, that can also translate into dreams of being chased. Sometimes, these dreams can result from anger and are seen as a warning to watch out for possible threats.

  • Teeth falling out in your dreams

    Dreaming about teeth falling out can commonly be linked to feeling unattractive or having negative thoughts about your image. Struggles with communication can also be a reason for these dreams, as teeth falling out can make it difficult to talk. A lack of confidence can also trigger this type of dream.

  • Being naked

    Commonly brought on by feelings of being exposed, dreams of being naked in public places like school or work can also be triggered by feeling accused by someone. However, dreams of being naked sometimes indicate that a person is comfortable with who they are.

  • Flying

    The ability to fly is associated with freedom. However, struggling or failing to fly in your dreams can indicate a lack of confidence. If someone else is in the dream, struggling to fly can point to them holding you back and stopping you from moving on with your plans in life.


Because the primary goal of dream analysis is to help people address the problems they are currently facing, it can be used to address many mental health issues. A newer cognitive behavioral technique called image rehearsal therapy has been developed to address concerns like posttraumatic stress and chronic nightmares.
In image rehearsal therapy (IRT), the goal is to rewrite the nightmare’s story. The therapist may coach the person in treatment to relay the bad dream, write it down, and then change the content to something positive, encouraging the individual to mentally rehearse this new dream script for up to 20 minutes a day in order to decrease the frequency and intensity of the nightmare. Due to its reported effectiveness, IRT is recommended as a best-practice standard for the treatment of nightmares, according to the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine.
