Recurring dream

I dreamt of standing indoors looking out at my mom who was then noticeably better (she has Alzheimer’s) as if in heaven and my teeth were falling out and she was comforting me.

Another dream was in a restaurant/marketplace and with my sister and again my teeth were falling out and it was so scary. I was trying to push them back in and more kept falling out.

I looked it up and possibly it could mean I am afraid a loved one will die. This is true, my mom is in late stages. Also I read it could be that I feel self conscious of my looks. That could be true too. My hair is falling out from medication so I’m self conscious. I already have a big fear of loosing teeth although logically there is no reason for me to think I will. Even visited specialists who laugh and say my teeth are great. So I’m just trying to vent about this to release some of the stress. And wondering if anyone else has recurring dreams like this.

Maybe it is to make you aware that you should not be focusing on your fears. We all know things will happen in life we just have to build our faith so in the time of trouble we will come out of it without being damaged by what has occurred in our life. We are to have faith not just for ourselves but for others.

It is said there are three things we can count on occurring, being born, passing on, and paying taxes. I myself would love a way to get out of the paying of taxes. I am going to research it.🙂

Enjoy your relationship with your mother, live life, it is what we ought to do.

Thank you for that insight. I practice putting my focus on the present moment and on helping people but I still have fears which I don’t know how to make smaller. I just got off of 3 anxiety meds so it has been extra tough. It’s hard to see my mom suffer so much. But I will try to enjoy her.

I’m so interested in what dreams mean...

I know people think they’re just random thoughts but its still interesting to me.

I’m sure teeth falling out means insecurities and fears... but I could be wrong.

Hopefully the bad dreams leave you soon xx 😘

Yeah defo! I have a reoccurring dream but have never been able to find a meaning to it. It’s basically a old man 👴🏼 flying in from my window and trying to grab me but when he comes really close to getting me he flys back out laughing.. so its like he’s taunting me .... 😳 strange right?!

Oh woah that would be great to figure out what that means. I wonder if the man is a symbol for something specific in life that you feel is testing you. So interesting!

I have a dream book but you are right Starrlight in that our dreams can teach us something about our fears with life. xx
