Nightmares are reflections of emotional problems or psychological issues.  A indicator of negative thinking patterns, troubling emotions, or bad habits that prevent you from being a more balanced and happier person.  Nightmares often point to problems that are effecting you unconsciously.  A sign that you need to confront a problem, seek guidance, or try to be more objective.

Although nightmares tend to come and go, the only real way to guarantee they stop completely is to deal with the underlying issues they are trying to address.  Fear, desire, guilt, jealousy, or attempts to control others are some of the more common problems people face.  Without addressing the underlying problems directly your nightmares will remain a problem.

To stop nightmares dead in their tracks it's recommended that you begin to process negativity in your life.  Stand up to fear whenever they feel it, resist desire for attractive people or material things that you don't believe you can ever have, and learn to let go of the past or accept change.  An individual must try to respect and understand all people from a logical adult perspective even if you don't like them.  This includes forgiving people, taking responsibility for your actions, and apologizing for mistakes you've made. With enough effort the conscience can be cleared, and your nightmares will disappear.

We encourage you to be open-minded, objective, and self-critical to allow yourself to explore the possibility that you have things about you that can be improved or changed for the better.  Also consider the possibility that you might need to finally stand up for yourself for first time in a way that you never have before.

The symbols you'll find below are some of the most common symbols you'll find nightmares.
