Low Self-Esteem- when you feel unworthy, inadequate, or that you do not measure up to the expectations of others, you may dream that your significant other is cheating on you.
Actual Cheating- in rare cases, your cheating dream may be about actual cheating. You may be overlooking cues or hints that your subconscious is picking up.
What are dreams?
When and why do you dream?
Dreams are most abundant and best remembered during the R.E.M. stage of sleep. This is the deepest stage of the sleep cycle, when your eyes are moving rapidly, your heart rate and breathing become inconsistent, and paralysis of your skeletal muscles occur. Paralysis of the muscles keeps us from physically acting out the dream. There is still no definite answer to the question of why we dream, but scientists generally seem to agree that dreaming is a form of thinking during sleep, a way of solving problems or coping with trauma.
Being chased in your dreams is one of many common dream themes stemming from feelings of anxiety in your life. You could be running away from an attacker who possibly wants to hurt or kill you. Fleeing is an instinctive response to a physical threat in the environment.
Being cheated on points to lack of trust- Trust is an important element in a relationship. If that trust is compromised, then you may express doubt in the relationship. One of these doubts can manifest itself as a adulterous dream.
Common Symbols in Dreams
Common Symbols In Dreams
Bugs- bugs are the manifestation of problems we're not facing.
Mirrors- mirrors in dreams reflect our inner qualities; both how others perceive us and how we see ourselves.
Tears- if you're crying in a dream, you're likely grappling with a pent-up emotion that you're not letting go of in real life.
Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur subconsciously in the mind during certain stages of sleep.
They can include people you've met, people you may not know, places you've been, or places you've never even heard of.
They can also be your deepest and darkest fears or secrets, and most private fantasies.
There's no limit to what the mind can experience during a dream and sometimes no rhyme or reason to what you end up dreaming about.
Although death is often perceived as negative, it's often more directly related to dramatic change happening for the dreamer -- the end of one thing, in order to make room for something new.
Water- comes in many different forms and can symbolize the subconscious mind. Calm pools of water reflect inner peace while a choppy ocean can suggest unease.
Food- often though to symbolize knowledge because it nourishes the body as information nourishes the brain.
