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.

    I had a dream where a oral surgeon was removing my last two wisdom teeth. He says,”Oh you only have 2 wisdom teeth.” I nod slightly and felt numb through the whole process and tried to turn my head a little to avoid swallowing blood. He used his hands to press my teeth and yank them out, which made a crack and pop sound. I proceeded to fall asleep in the dream after spiting out the blood. I then woke up from the dream.

    I have dreams often about losing my teeth, however this dream was weird. I was pulling my own teeth out, at will. In the dream it was obvious I liked the feeling of pulling the tooth out & feeling the gums. In the dream I convinced myself that my teeth were going to grow back- before waking up I realized it’s impossible & began to panic.. i searched my whole house looking for every tooth so I could put them all in milk & rush to my dentist. I only found 3 before waking up.

    I had this bizarre dream last night. I happened to pull off 4 teeth. At first, i reached it with my tongue and felt that it was loose so I pulled it off. After pulling one tooth, I felt another one is loose and so I pulled it again until I pulled off 4 teeth. There was no blood and it was not painful also.

    What’s the meaning of my dream? Thanks

      I had a dream last night the exact same. Only I think it was six teeth, they were becoming loose one at a time and when I pulled them it actually felt like I could feel the pop when the tooth ejected, I could feel the holes in my mouth where the teeth were, no blood and the people around me was very calm like nothing was going on…. really weird

    I keep having this dream lately that my jaw is clenched super tight and I know that if I move my jaw and try and open it my tooth will get caught and I will rip it out. I have an overwhelming feeling to open my jaw and do so while my molar rips out …. I hold my tooth in fear and try and find someone who can fix me.

      I literally had that same dream today! I literally couldn’t move my law and if I did , my teeth would yank out with the movement. Each time I tried to clench my mouth, my teeth would dig into my gums and bleed endlessly. The pain in my dream was so excruciating that I ended up pulling all of them out! Weird thing is, at the end, I have my brother a gummy smile with all of my teeth in my palms :/

  • Michael

    Had a weird dream that was basically a normal day. I walked my dogs and was at work afterward at work i felt my tooth loosewith my tongue touched it with my hand and then pulled it out painlessly. I went to check the place it was at and my tooth was still there. So I had a tooth in my hand and a tooth in my mouth then I felt the rest of my teeth and they were loose. So I started pulling them out one by one being confused that I had a handful of teeth but a mouth still full of teeth as well. So I just stopped touching my tongue to my teeth and continued working and put the teeth away in my desk drawer
