Become your own dream interpreter

Accurate dream interpretation does not require you a become a clairvoyant or psychic who can do readings to predict the future, nor an astrologer who knows how to read horoscopes and make forecasts based on your zodiac sign.

Serious dream work compels you to engage your intellect, imagination, and intuition together. It engages both sides of your brain by combining activities associated with the analytical left hemisphere and the intuitive and holistic right hemisphere. Dream interpretation is both intuitive and intellectual, and as such, it can be part of a rich process of personal development.

Unlike the predictions found in horoscopes or psychic readings, dream interpretation relies on your active participation. When you interpret your dreams, put yourself in the shoes of the dream interpreter who understands the symbols and meanings of your dreams the best.

This dream symbol could also point to things you have said that may or may not be really trustworthy. A broken tooth or teeth would symbolize guilt you feel about a broken promise or concerns over promises you or others cannot depend on.

A broken tooth, dream symbol for pain and loss

Broken teeth symbolize pain over losing something that is important to you. You may be currently experiencing changes in your life, transitioning from one place or job to another, ending a relationship or working on modifying your habits.

Dreaming about teeth breaking is a common symbol for concerns over change and loss. Your dream could point to the fear of getting hurt emotionally and perhaps physically as well by an upcoming situation or by someone.

When dreaming about broken teeth means costly compromises

A dream about teeth breaking can be interpreted as a warning about the cost of a decision or action. You may have or are about to make a choice that compromises with your real needs or desires. Broken teeth may represent the emotional pain that comes with such a choice.

A costly compromise is like losing a part of you or denying important needs. Through an image related to the body, a broken tooth or teeth, your dream is most likely pointing to the emotional pain that your decision triggered.

    Hi! My two dogs were stolen last July 4th this year. The other one was stolen just last August.

    I had a dream last night. In my dream, a woman was walking with my two dogs. When I saw them, I immediately run into them and called their names.

    I was not even sire if it was them or was I just hallucinating. But then, their respond was like the usual when I go home from work, or not seeing them for a long time.

    Then I was sure it was them. Then, when we went home, I looked at the older dog’s teeth. I even asked her, “how did your teeth become this broken? Didn’t they take care of you responsibly? I saw his teeth almost falling apart.

    What could my dream possibly mean?

    from a 3rd person view i am talking to some people, i’m guessing friends, and in the middle of a sentence i clench my teeth down and the view shifts to 1st person, and i feel a pain in my two bottom canine teeth. I look down and pick one up and realize its my teeth that have broken off. The view again changes to 3rd person, and i can see see the cores of my two teeth, like the rings and they are flush with my gums. there is also blood and my gums look intensely red. with my tongue i can feel the holes where my teeth were but all the other teeth are still there. I think my father was also in the dream, but that is just a vague feeling rather then me actually seeing him. and then i woke up.

    I had a dream I was kissing an attractive man, and I felt my teeth start to break and chip apart during the kiss. When I pulled away, I could see the front layer of my front tooth was missing, and the skin of my forehead was also peeling away.
