Last night I had an assortment of dreams. There was no reason or rhyme.
But the last bit of my dream was a reoccurring nightmare.
A bunch of my teeth fell out! Oh my gosh! Why do I keep having this dream?
I heard this is common… others told me that they dream this too.
It is so disturbing to me.
I haven’t been to the dentist lately. Maybe this is my reminder.
I don’t wanna lose my teeth!
So I googled dream interpretation of loosing teeth… here is what I found… although many websites had various meanings. This is found from www.dreammoods.com:
One theory is that dreams about your teeth reflect your anxiety about your appearance and how others perceive you. Sadly, we live in a world where good looks are valued highly and your teeth play an important role in conveying that image. Teeth are used in the game of flirtations, whether it be a dazzling and gleaming smile or affectionate necking. These dreams may stem from a fear of your sexual impotence or the consequences of getting old. Teeth are an important feature of our attractiveness and presentation to others. Everybody worries about how they appear to others. Caring about our appearance is natural and healthy.
This is interesting enough because I am always nagging myself about my health and exercise. I am forever thinking Monday will the a new week!!!
Another rationalization for these falling teeth dream may be rooted in your fear of being embarrassed or making a fool of yourself in some specific situation. These dreams are an over-exaggeration of your worries and anxiety.
I feel this way while at work at Sanj’s office. Everything is so new and intimidating. Since I know there are people there waiting for me to fail (no not Sanj… lol), it only adds to my agitation.
Teeth are used to bite, tear, chew and gnaw. In this regard, teeth represent power. And the loss of teeth in your dream may be from a sense of powerlessness. Are you lacking power in some current situation? Perhaps you are having difficulties expressing yourself or getting your point across. You feel frustrated when your voice is not being heard. You may be experiencing feelings of inferiority and a lack of self-confidence in some situation or relationship in your life. This dream is an indication that you need to be more assertive and believe in the value of your own opinion.
Hum… again, perhaps in the work environment again. Lately I have been having thoughts of being the Bitch that I know is in me, waiting to come out and blow up. Tick Tock…
In the latest research, it has been shown that women in menopause have frequent dreams about teeth. This may be related to getting older and/or feeling unattractive and less feminine.
Traditionally, it was thought that dreaming that you did not have teeth, represent malnutrition which may be applicable to some dreamers.
A scriptural interpretation for bad or falling teeth indicate that you are putting your faith, trust, and beliefs in what man thinks rather than in the word of God. The bible says that God speaks once, yea twice in a dream or a vision in order to hide pride from us, to keep us back from the pit, to open our ears (spiritually) and to instruct and correct us.
In the Greek culture, when you dream about loose, rotten, or missing teeth, it indicates that a family member or close friend is very sick or even near death.
According to the Chinese, there is a saying that your teeth will fall out if your are telling lies.
It has also been said that if you dream of your teeth falling out, then it symbolizes money. This is based on the old tooth fairy story. If you lose a tooth and leave it under the pillow, a tooth fairy would bring you money.
Hello Lotto 649!!!
Well… I can say all sorts of stuff on this … but I am really trying to listen to God rather than man.
I don’t have any sick loved ones that are going to kick the bucket… that I know of.
I am not telling lies… except to Josh about Santa. OK I have told a few white lies here and
but that was in the interest of everyone! lol
Calling the dentist for my cleaning and check up that I didn’t have time for!
