Since sex is so prevalent in our society, not to mention necessary for our survival as a species, it is no wonder that we dream of having sex. As with any dream symbol, what sex means to you in your dream will depend on your feelings about sex and your experience as a sexual being.
Dreaming of babies may represent an immature aspect of yourself or a new aspect of yourself that is still maturing or developing. It may also symbolize a part of you that is feeling neglected or needs to be nurtured, loved and accepted by you.
Dreams of a cheating partner are among the most common dreams reported. These dreams are often so emotionally disturbing that it’s not unusual to accuse your partner of cheating when you wake up. In reality, cheating dreams are often related to your own low self-esteem or guilty conscience.
To dream of killing someone or that you are being murdered may suggest that your unconscious is trying to kill off an unpleasant or unneeded aspect of yourself.

If you are a woman, your mother or mother-in-law may be representing an aspect of yourself that you need to examine more closely.
Dreams about driving may represent the control you have over where you are going in life. Remember that the Driver is the one making decisions about the direction taken and how fast you get there. Are you driving or are you a passenger?

Family members in a dream can mean many different things. They may simply be themselves and the dream may be dealing with some aspect of your family life or your relationship with these family members.

The clothes we wear in waking life help identify us – they represent how we want others to see us. Clothes also hide our imperfect bodies, and metaphorically, our emotional and psychological imperfections. When we aren’t wearing clothes we are stripped of our identity and others can see us as we really are.
In waking life teeth have two purposes; to chew our food to take in nourishment and to make us look better. Dreams about teeth then, may suggest there is something you need to chew over or think about more or you may be concerned about your appearance and how other perceive you.
The clothes you wear in dreams may represent the side of yourself that you choose to show the world; your outer personality or Persona. Consider the parts of the body that are being covered up or revealed for further insight into what you are concealing and/or revealing to others. Also consider the color of the apparel or item of clothing.
