Repetition dream meanings


Repetitions occur in the dream as compulsive behavior or as recurring dream symbols. Repetitions, that make us unhappy, Sigmund Freud called neuroses.

If you are dreaming always same dream or a dream series in the same behaviors again and again, same situation or same dream symbols – then this dream says to you, that you should give up your compulsive repetition in daily life.

The dream want to create with this information an awareness of your repeats. If repetition of dreams in short intervals occur, then dreams have always the same meaning and always refers to the same thing. But if between same dreams is larger interval of time, so it will almost always mean something else. Human does not live forever in the same conditions and so are the dreams also refer repeatedly to the new circumstances.

For example: if a perfume retailer dreamed that he had no more nose. Then he gave up his business, because without nose – no smell and he could no longer practice his profession. After his career change he had that dream again. But this time he was caught with forgery and had to flee to a foreign country. This time, meant the loss of the nose, that his face was ugly, he seemed to have lost his face – so he lost his reputation. It is always important to consider the circumstances in the interpretation.

  2. I keep having 2 dreams over and over the first is I’m babysitting my ex’s little cousin and a lady breaks in to my house she tries to take the boy but I hide him. I attack the lady but no matter what she doesn’t die, I stab her and cut her arms off but she still attacks me like its not hurting or killing her, the boys mom shows up and she calls the police, then they show up and take the lady away and we go to court and I win a million dollars then the boy tells me the lady broke his dads van and I told him I would buy him a new one and then right after I say that it starts back to the beginning. The second is a man won a card game to soon and he was going to be killed so he sent me and his grandson to hide we walk across a parking lot and he has me hide something important in my clothing we pass a gym and a few other stores then we get into the woods and a kid my age pops out and stabs the grandsons eyes out and goes after me after fighting back he stabs me in the chest then I start back to the beginning of this dream all the same but when we pass the stores I changed where I went and we ended up in a school and between the lockers the boy popped out again holding a knife and putting it up to my throat but he stops turns around and stabs the grandsons eyes out, I ran into a classroom and hid in a closet and locked the door he tried to open it and then all of a sudden the door turns to paper so it wouldn’t protect me anymore, I jumped out of the closet and tackled the kid and he was shocked and I punched and stabbed but nothing happened, he smiled at me with a bloody smile then grabbed my neck and squeezed so hard I died. I get so scared to go to bed when I have dreams that will stop them start over right after I don’t know what they mean but they’re scary.

  3. how about dreaming of falling from a place and you just woke up… anyone?
    or dreaming that you are awake and what you are seeing in your dream is what really is happening at that moment more likely a third persona kind of view on where you are resting… because it happens to me allot…

  4. For the past three weeks or so I have been having nightmares every night. They arent always repeating the same dream but I constantly say the same thing during the dream. It is always someone trying to hurt or kill me but no one ever helps me.

  5. Recently I’ve been thinking about moving out because I’m turning 18, but I was skeptical about it because my mom has asthma & I don’t want to leave her with my family because I am her first child so I am the oldest so I feel it’s my responsibility to take care of her. Every night I’ve been having dreams that I’ve been saving her from nightmares. It’s like SHE’S having nightmares and in my dreams I’m always saving her. Like one dream I saved her from a snow monster she was stuck in the snow in her car, another dream I was saving her from monsters like Freddy Kreuger & humans with magic powers. Then I read an article & it said if you’re having repetition dreams then that’s telling you that you need to stop the compulsive repetition in real life. So, through my eyes that’s saying I need to stop saving my mother and move out! Does anyone agree/disagree ?

  6. Dreaming of my this ex(1st love) bf since the day we broke up (our relationship are only almost 6 months but we are in love and serious, we broke up because he is ill but he is still living now, I have known him a year before our relationship started). He still came into my dream after 8 years of breaking up, is few times in a year. I wanted to stop dreaming of him but I can’t control my dream… The dreams of him include cuddling together, spending time together in a relationship type, he watching me from a distance in car park, etc. (all the dreams has nothing to do with sex at all, no sex involved) in the dreams we might talk but conversation are not clear. The most recent dream, last week, we spend time together in a cottage house having a meal and then went out to have a walk (in my head which I know we are in a relationship) but at the same time in the dream I was thinking I will leave my present boyfriend to be with my this ex-boyfriend(1st love) and then the scene changed, a floods of strong water falling from a mountain(like a small tsunami/waterfall) like it is gonna wash me away then my ex-bf advised me to jump to the side of the road (the side of the road where he is) and so I looked back watched the small tsunami a while and then later I jumped to the side of the road just in time to escape the tsunami, after this I woke up. Well, in real life I do have a bf, I do think of leaving my real present bf because we are not a match not because of my ex-bf. I dream of my ex-boyfriend even when I am single. May be I do still love my ex but I also hate him because of all the pain, I am not even sure if I want to get back with my ex.

    Dreaming of him had tortured me many years, can anyone please help? at least tell me what does these dreams means? Thank you very much.
