What are possible meanings for dreams of emotions?
Emotions are at the heart of most dreams. Dreaming is a two-part process of creating symbolic imagery and tying it to emotions, like two sides of a coin. However, some dreams appear to connect only with thoughts and thought processes.
Dreams trigger emotions that would otherwise stay bottled up or unexpressed. So in that sense, dreams provide venting, as a volcano vents to release pressure. By releasing emotions during a dream, you might avoid a blowup while awake.
Dreams can trigger strong emotions like rage, terror, love, and ecstasy. Experiencing these emotions while dreaming doesn’t necessarily mean you feel them in your waking life, but it’s a good indication you feel something similar or could feel that way under certain circumstances. In dreams the gloves come off, your inhibitions come down, and the emotional centers of your brain light up.
So you might not feel rage in your waking life, for example, but if you dream about it, something could be pushing you in that direction, and if the situation is left unaddressed you could find yourself in a rage. You might not feel ecstatic, but maybe you feel really happy—or could feel that way under the right circumstances. The potential is there.
For example, a young man dreams he’s back in high school and is told he won’t graduate. He asks the teacher for help but the answers confuse him. He reacts with rage and tosses desks around the classroom, then stalks off to track down the school counselor, knowing that the counselor is somehow responsible for his predicament.
The dream summarizes a situation he’s in. He graduated a few years back and has been directionless since then. He doesn’t know what to do with his life, and no adults are providing answers, as symbolized in the dream by confusing answers from the teacher and looking for the school counselor, meaning someone to guide him. The rage felt in the dream is a raw, honest expression of his emotions, and it’s shown in how he reacts so strongly. His life is wasting away, and he knows it. After analyzing and understanding the dream, he resolves it by joining the Navy.
One of the golden rules of dream interpretation is that dreams exaggerate. They do so to get your attention as they express the underlying dynamics of a situation.
For example, you are buried with work and dream that you are buried alive. Being buried alive is a much worse situation than being buried at work, of course, but in an exaggerated way it expresses your emotions. Many dreams can be interpreted simply by relating the emotions they trigger with your waking life and gauging the strength of your reaction.
For example, when being buried alive elicits a mild reaction, you can bet the symbolism connects with something that’s just the way things are. Perhaps being buried in work is just par for the course. Hell, maybe you enjoy it!
When you react strongly to a situation in a dream, it’s a good indicator that it symbolizes something you feel strongly about, something that arouses powerful emotions in you.
For example, a female dreams about a drink spilling on her mattress during sex while a condom is being put on. She flies off in a rage and kicks her partner out. Her reaction shows that she feels very strongly about what the spilled drink symbolizes: the possibility of accidentally getting pregnant. It only takes a little bit of spilled semen to get her pregnant.
Her reaction reveals that she subconsciously knows the meaning of the symbolism of the spilled drink. Otherwise, why react so strongly to something that on the surface appears innocuous? Her emotional reaction reveals the meaning of the symbolism, and in turn reveals the meaning of the dream.
Colors in dreams have strong correlation with emotions. A rule of thumb is that colors signify related emotions. Bob Hoss’s work in this area is terrific; you can find it by searching online for “Bob Hoss dreams color.” And see: Colors.
Feelings are not synonymous with emotions. How you feel about something is a value judgment, not an emotion, but emotion is felt in the body, so in that sense “feel” is appropriate. The list of entries below includes some entries better classified as feelings.

Very dramatic dream about covid
I was standing in a very crowded room with hundreds of other people. We were all wearing masks and everyone was silent. Then suddenly I coughed, and everyone gasped while turning to look at me. I realised that they all thought I had covid, and so I fell to my knees while yelling “NOOO I JUST CHOKED ON MY SPIT!!!” (but I hadn’t choked on my spit). But then everyone started yelling “GO AWAY!!! BE GONE!!! GET OUT OF HERE!!!” and I was like “NOOO PLEASE NOOO!!! I JUST CHOKED!!! PLEASE NO!!!”. It was incredibly dramatic, like I was being shunned. It was pretty scary in the dream, because I was so desperate, but when I woke up I kinda laughed at how overly dramatic it was. I don’t know what to make of this dream though...

Dreamt that I showed my dick in a zoom meeting
I was in my room just vibing and decided to get comfortable. However when I whipped it out to readjust it someone said woah woah and blocked my stream. I didn't even notice a meeting was on let alone it had people I knew. I said it was an accident and someone said "don't worry, you're a nice guy" but it left me with horror.

I had a dream months ago about a dead person I never knew, then googled his name only to find out he was a real person. Here I am months later, and his name randomly came to my head. I googled him...
Several months ago, I woke up one morning remembering a strange dream I had the previous night. In the dream, I visualized a phone with “new text messages” that said, “_FirstName_Last Name is dead!!” (Keeping name undisclosed per the loved ones’ privacy). Today, it is about 2.5-3 months later since I had this strange dream, and his name randomly came to my head when I was going about my daily business. I told my girlfriend about how his name showed up in my head again, and she was shocked to find an obituary that said that he had died TODAY, 2 years ago. I remembered this complete stranger I dreamt of in a dream, ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH. Does anyone know what this means?? Please help me understand, I feel I have a very strange connection/meaning with this person!! Also, SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY loved. Thank you.

I think I saw my past life 10 years ago, and it still messes with me to this day
Hey guys, this is my first time posting on Reddit.
So as the title suggests, when I was a 10-year-old girl I had a dream of being someone. It started from when they were born to their death, during the dream I never thought it was a dream it just felt like he was me. The dream continued to show this guy's life story, I could see everything from his eyes and feel what he felt, everything except for pain.
He got married, to a girl named Sherry or Mary (I can't fully recall the name) when he was about 20-25 yrs old, later he had a son (Mark) after a few years. But what really disturbs me to this day was this man's death, he got into a car accident and he died slowly getting crushed. Although I couldn't feel the pain, I did feel the pressure slowly crushing my chest as I struggled to breathe, my mind filled with thoughts about his family.
Once he closed his eyes, I woke up and at that moment I forgot who I was, I also was crying, I began to check my chest upon not noticing any injuries I ran to the home phone in my house and dialed his wife's phone only to get no answer. I snapped out of it when I caught my reflection on the shiny toaster that was in the kitchen and suddenly I remembered who I was.
To this day I struggle with pain relationships (As I feel like I am cheating, idk why it's weird) and driving gives me major anxiety when I am behind the wheel. This dream happened over the course of 10 hours.
Also if you are curious about what they look like I will provide descriptions.
**Sherry/Mary-** Brown eyes, wavy long hair, and fair pale skin
**Mark-** Black short spikey hair, brown eyes, and fair pale skin
**Man (I was in the dream)-** Black short spikey hair, dark eyes, facial hair (Wiskers), and fair pale skin
