Here's a list of 25 most common images/symbols/people that everyone dreams.
The idea that dreams are a communication from beyond the physical experience is not new. As long as man has been able to reason he has experienced the phenomena of dreaming, seeking to understand its significance. Every culture in each time period has developed insight into dreams and why they exist.
The ability to understand the messages received in dreams is quickly being recognized as the link between the physically visible and invisible universes of man. Just as each nation has its physical language for the communication of ideas and perceptions so dreams are conveyed in the language spoken by a group of minds. The Universal Language of Mind is that language.
1. Animals represent habits.
Animals function from instinct, reacting to pleasure or pain. Having differing degrees of memory and the ability for attention, animals lack the evolutionary development including sufficient brain capacity needed for imagination. Most animals in a dream will represent the dreamer's habits.
2. Baby is a new idea.
A child is the result of uniting of a male and female. In the language of mind this represents the cooperative use of the aggressive and receptive principles to create something new.
3. Clothes signify how the dreamer is expressing Self.
Clothes indicate the part of the Self others view. Many cultures describe the three-fold nature of Self as: the person we show to others, the person we believe ourselves to be, and the person we truly are. Clothes signify what we allow others to see.
4. Death symbolizes change.
Death in a dream is frightening to most dreamers because they lack understanding of the nature of physical life and death. For the aware thinker, the physical life is known as a temporary existence for the soul. The French philosopher Voltaire said centuries ago "It is no more surprising to be born twice than once, everything in nature is resurrection." In the Universal Language of Mind, death signifies a change from one state of being to another.
5, Examination signifies the mental action of discerning the truth.
An examination in a dream symbolizes a time for reflection and evaluation. The subject of the test will give further insight into the theme for reflection. For example, a medical exam will indicate the need to identify attitudes producing wholeness or dis-ease.
