WHETHER you remember them or not, dreams have more significance thank you think.
And, there are some common dreams that occur that you may be wondering the meaning behind.
Well, professional dream analyst Lauri Loewenberg detailed exactly what some of your dreams may mean.
YOUR PARTNER IS CHEATING
"This is such a common dream because the feeling of not being a priority is so common in relationships.
"In my 27 years as a professional dream analyst, I have found that the most common reason we dream our partner is cheating is because there is something in the relationship that feels like a third wheel.
"Usually it's work, but it could be anything from your partner spending too much time with their friends, working on a side hustle or maybe even a new baby that's now the object of affection."
Loewenberg said it is also possible you are getting the dream because there is infidelity in your past.
"If the infidelity happened in your current relationship, these dreams are a very clear indication that this is an an issue that is still alive within you.
"The remnants are still there and it needs to be addressed with the help of a marriage or relationship counselor."
If the infidelity happened in a previous relationship on the other hand, the dream may mean that you have brought a certain level of distrust or insecurity into your current relationship. Or, perhaps something is going on somewhere else in your life that makes you feel similar to when you were cheated on years ago, according to Loewenberg.

Ask yourselfwhether a friend, co-worker or family member is doing something shady, as that can be the source of this type of dream.
Pinpoint when the dreams began because that is always a big clue. The dream will correlate to some other unsettling or fishy issue that began at the same time.
DREAMING OF AN EX
"This one is so common because we all have an ex and remnants of the ex and that relationship can continue to be at play in our real lives for many years… of course the meaning depends on which ex you are dreaming about," Loewenberg explained.
"If it is your most recent ex, you are likely dreaming about them because your subconscious is trying to help you come to terms with the ending of the relationship and help you to reach closure.
"So pay close attention to the tone of these dreams as well as the details, especially anything that is said in the dream as well as what your thought process is while in the dream because it will correlate with your current thoughts on the matter."
Lowenberg said that is also important to keep in mind that anything that is said in the dream, even whatever your ex says, is really coming from you. Your dream is your creation. And the conversations in your dreams are really a conversation you are having with yourself about the situation.
If the tone is upsetting and the words are being said are cruel… that's YOU beating yourself up. Take it as a wake up call to change your inner dialogue. Speak kind, supportive and uplifting words to yourself while awake and the conversations in your dreams will follow suit.
Loewenberg shared the particular ex that may reoccur the most in our dreams: "The ex we tend to dream about the most, however, is our first love.
"And your subconscious just might be doing a comparison between your life then and now: Are you in a dry spell? Is your current relationship lacking spice?
"Whatever the case, your subconscious is telling you it's time to reignite the flame either in your current relationship or perhaps even to find something that can bring this same sort of excitement into your life."
NAKED IN PUBLIC
"Any sort of real life situation that causes you to be hyper aware of the gaze of others seems to be the main reason people get this dream," Loewenberg said.
"In these situations, we worry about how others perceive us, our performance and even our appearance. And sometimes it comes after we have messed up and now feel like we made a fool of ourselves.
"This vulnerability is expressed in our dreams. But pay close attention to the other people in your naked dream; you may find that – while you are desperately trying to hide your naked butt – no one else seems to notice or care."
This is the way your subconscious is reminding you that you are giving way too much thought and energy to how others perceive you.
On the flip side, Loewenberg said that some naked dreams can be freeing, with the dreamer enjoying the nudity. These dreams will often happen when we have been very open and honest in real life, when we've let it all hang out, so to speak.
"The common behavior of avoidance is why this dream is so prevalent," the dream expert explained.
"Running from something or someone in a dream happens when we don't handle something right away, nip it in the bud and end it.
"People who tend to avoid confrontation at all costs get this dream a lot. It can also be caused by procrastination or by trying to distance yourself from a bad situation."
The thing about this dream is that what or whomever is chasing us, is
behind us. That's a big clue. When you get this dream in real life, ask
yourself what you are trying to put behind you right now? Is there
something from your past you are trying to get away from?

What or whomever the pursuer is, is also a big clue. If it's someone you are aware is trying to kill you, then that can mean you are avoiding a big change or ending in your real life.
If it's a rabid dog, for example, it can mean there is an unhealthy relationship in your life you are avoiding dealing with.
