Dreaming about a mouthful of glass can be quite disturbing. Sometimes these dreams are painful, stressful, and nightmare-like in nature. They can leave us feeling uneasy, make us wake up in cold sweat, and even linger as we try to go about our day.
Dreaming about glass in your mouth is anything but enjoyable. But, what could such dreams mean?
What are dream interpretations?
Interpreting dreams is a practice that’s almost as old as dreams themselves. It stretches across cultures, countries, and religions. Many times, the images displayed to us while we are unconscious are thought to be our subconscious mind or higher self speaking to us. Others may believe it is the only time our spirit guides and ancestors are able to communicate with us. Regardless of who is trying to do the telling, it is the actual telling itself that causes us to seek out the deeper meaning of our dreams.
Many ancient societies depended on dreams to drive them forward in their decision-making or had a designated person like a high priestess or shaman that would advise on different areas of life after having dreamt about them.
