Even if we don't remember them when we wake up, fact of the matter is: We all dream, every single night, for at least 90 minutes.
That's more than enough time for your mind to whip up one hell of a movie and often, leaving you very confused in the morning as to what it all meant.

Here are the 7 most common dreams and how they can be interpreted:
1. Being chased
This is one of the most commonly reported dreams. Often because it's the most vivid, it is easy to recall.
This dream is the reversal of what we are actually seeing. If you're being chased in the dream, you're often running from something in real life. Is there something you aren't addressing? Does an issue need your attention? This dream is to encourage you to finally face a problem.
Ever wake up with a jolt after falling from an unknown object? There are two types of falling: Scary and peaceful.
The peaceful floating fall could suggest you're in a stage of letting go. Whereas, falling from a scary height could mean you are out of control of something happening in your life.
When dreaming of giving birth or a baby it can suggest something new is on the horizon. Whether it's a fresh idea, a creative project or becoming a parent, this dream represents a need to start something new.
Flying in a dream, and how effectively or poorly it’s done, relates to how much control we feel we have in our lives. Flying high above the world is an amazing feeling and encourages you to allow things to "fall into place naturally". Skimming low to the ground, it can mean there is an out of control situation in your life causing you frustration.
5. Teeth falling out
This dream could be a sign that something is happening in your life that has caused you to lose confidence. It reflects your anxiety about your appearance and how others see you. Your teeth are an important ego boost in the art of flirtation and kissing, so such dreams could stem from a fear of rejection or now feeling sexual.
Whether you're behind the wheel, or taking the backseat, a dream about a car generally relates to an aspect of your life's journey.
If you are trying to drive from the back seat, where in life are you taking a "back seat"? If your brakes don't work, perhaps you feel as though you have lost control of something. If you can't find the headlights, maybe you feel you are in the dark in some area and are having trouble seeing your direction.
7. Address from your childhood
To dream of an address from your childhood may signify that you should look over something from that time. If the address reminds you of a time when your parents divorced, there may be a lesson from their struggles that could help you sort out any current relationship problems.
