A recurring dream catches our attention because it seems to be a message that has been ignored the first few times. So, it keeps on coming back to you until you acknowledge and do something about.
You cannot help but be bothered about it because your mind seems obsessed about something in particular. So, you need to find out what your recurring dream means.
Keep a dream journal
Keep a journal and a pen close to you when you sleep. As soon as you wake up and remember a dream, jot down all the details of the dream and the time you woke up. Do this every morning when you wake up. Try to remember as many details as you can.
Compare the details in your recurring dream episodes. What has changed? What has been added? Is there a feeling of dread attached to your recurring dream or are you just left feeling confused? Take note of those feelings, as well.
Compare dream to your real life
Once you have an adequate number of entries in your dream journal, try to remember when the dream first came to you.
Has the same dream occurred at a different stage in your life? What major event did the dreams coincide with? Try to see if the recurring dream is nothing but a symbolic representation of your state in life.
Maybe it is a result of too much stress at this point in your life.
Take note of common dreams
These dreams are universally common because they represent universal experiences. For example, you keep on dreaming about falling.
You probably are experiencing so many frustrations and missed opportunities in your life.
