Top 5 Nightmares You Should Never Ignore

"Dreams can give us insight into ourselves and test our preconceived beliefs, allowing us to try out new approaches to old problems." Read on to learn the 5 dreams that may foretell future problems in your life.

If you find it difficult to take deep breaths, it may be an indication that you are enmeshed in a relationship, problem, or thought process to the point where you are finding it difficult to function.

1. You're drowning or there's flooding.

However, sleep apnea can cause your body to have nightmares in which you are drowning or your house is overflowing. "I would recommend a sleep study so it can be diagnosed and treated if you are overweight and have this dream frequently,"

"When the fire, in your dream, is in your house, that is a big red flag that you are on the verge of total and complete burnout," cautions Loewenberg. You are the home.

2. A house is on fire.

In reality, the more blood you see, the more energy is being stolen from you. You only have so much time, money, and energy; it's like blood; Loewenberg says.

3. There's blood or bleeding.

If this is the case, it may be because you are offering too much. Perhaps you're investing too much time or energy into something that isn't yielding results, giving too much to someone who doesn't appreciate it, or spending more than you have.

"Dreams, whether nightmares or dreams-fulfilled, can often be attributed to the social causes and issues to which we are constantly exposed," argues Dr. Gluss.

4. You see snakes or spiders.

It may be a sign that you need to take it easy or quit doing something. Your dreams are "your subconscious sending you a strong message that something in your life has gotten out of control and is going to come to a messy end," as Loewenberg puts it.

5. The brakes don't work.

Dreaming that your brakes fail will help you figure out where you might need to put the breaks on. A relationship, out-of-control spending, negative mental pattern, untruth, or destructive routine are all examples.

However, "not all dreams are similar in interpretation," so "it is important to pay attention to your own intuition when understanding what your dreams may mean," as Dr. Gluss puts it.
