You wake up suddenly in the middle of the night. The same nightmare came to you in your sleep again. This is not a coincidence, it’s a sign. Not a sign that you will be chased by a clown or pushed off a building, but a sign that obstacles in your life are troubling you more than you think.

Being Chased

Being chased by a person, demon or monster is a common dream had when you are trying to avoid something in your daily life. Maybe you are avoiding a friend or task at school. Don’t be surprised if they make an appearance in your dreams.

These dreams could also indicate you are trying to escape your fears or desires. If an important exam is coming up, your history teacher could make an appearance in your nightmares.

Taking Tests

Tests are stressful and usually important times in a person’s life. Testing usually represents the fear of failing. Dreams of taking a test, failing one or missing an exam can show that you feel unprepared for challenges you are experiencing in life.

If you experience a dream involving a test you should evaluate the importance of preparing yourself for not only school, but also plans for the future.


Dreams of leaving a person or something behind are usually signs to move on from certain feelings. Maybe a break up or loss has been holding you back, you are telling yourself through these dreams to go forward in life.

Everyone knows themselves better than anyone else. You should pay attention and attempt to analyze these dreams to get a more clear understanding of what is best for you.


Wealth in dreams symbolize self worth. A lack of money can show a feeling of disappointment with one’s accomplishments. An abundance of money can represent pride in a recent achievement or in life in general. This could be a sign that you need to treat yourself for your hard work or attainment of your goals.


Roads are quite obvious when it comes to interpreting dreams. If a road appears in a dream, it usually is a sign to start questioning your path in life. Or if the journey in the dream is pleasant then it could mean you should continue with your life choices.
