That Darn Dream!

Most of us must have heard of this from our not so young elders - having a dream that a tooth falls off is really bad, a sign (daw!) that someone you love - a relative or friend - will die... Well, this really is giving me the creeps and it didn't help that today is Friday the 13th! I'm not saying that I believe this.

You know, a few days before my grandfather died, I had a dream that two of my teeth broke. I believe that was just a coinsidence. So just to see if there are other meanings to this dream, I looked it up in the internet. Here is what it says in:

1. (
Normally an unfavorable sign in a dream. It signifies displeasure and also shows that you are afraid of losing someone dear to you.

2. (
Teeth, falling out: Spiritual tragedy, diseases.

3. (
Teeth Dreams
Dreaming about teeth is very common in all cultures and age groups. Most dreams about teeth leave people feeling uneasy and anxious. Consider the overall content and context of the dream and note if you are having dental problems before making interpretation. Teeth usually symbolise power and/or control. Animals use their teeth for defence and nourishment and show their teeth when they are angry. Humans often display similar behaviours. Look and see if you are losing or abusing power and control in any area of your life (especially if you are losing teeth in your dream). Old dream interpretations say that dreaming about teeth is a bad omen that suggests financial difficulties.

The common meaning I found from my "research" is all about difficulties (financial and spiritual) and tragedy. That last thing makes me feel uncomfortable... I don't like that word - very negative!

Well guys, (and I am telling this to myself too...), the best thing to do is to pray to God that nothing bad will happen... and that this dream is just that - a dream.
