Do you believe that our dreams mean something?

well... what I know about dreams is that we dream EVERY night, because our brain needs to keep on working while we are sleeping, and the dreams exist for this. when we don't remember our dreams, it doesn't mean that we didn't have anyone.

talking about my dreams... well... it depends. sometimes I can't remember anything, or I just know that I had that weird dream from which I don't understan anything, you know? but during this last weeks, my dreams are staying with me when I wake up, and then I still can remember them. I'm having really realistic dreams and most of them are related to my day-by-day life, which wasn't so common before.

I don't know if dreams really mean anything, like, when they say that if you dream about "blah blah blah", then "blah blah blah" will happen one day. I can't really believe or understand that. but what I believe is that the dreams are, sure, related to our lives, to what we wish would come true, to what happened to us.

and if I could talk about nightmares, I would just say that I HATE them and I will never watch Ring or any other horror movie again because that almost made me go to a psychologist... and I'm serious about it.

I used to believe that dreams are prophetic when I was schoolgirl, but now I don't. I think dreams are like a mirror for our secret (or maybe not secret) wishes or concealed horrors. I always want to travel a lot and in my dreams I visited such places which I can't ideate (usually it's not our world... but it may be just another city) :roll: Sometimes it's interesting for me to remember my dreams whatever it is and if I was a writer I would have a rich materials for stories... ;)
...Be happy...

The only meaning of my dream is that it makes me realized i am still alive when i open my eyes. Otherwise, no matter how good and accurate my dream was but i could not ever open my eyes again (in other words, i died), that dreams means nothing.

Again, case close.. next case please.. lol

And there are so many actions happen in my live I feel I saw them before then I remember that I saw it in my dreams !!


i pretty agree with u.i usually have this same feeling.sometimes i found things happened in reality occured in my dreams also.is there some myths between the reality and the dreams?or that is some parts of our brains leading to this result??

Once in a while dreams might mean something to us. I think it is true in some speical situation.
When we are under pressure, or there is something impacted us deeply, or we have other emotional experiences, the dreams will be in effect.
They will tell us something that we aren't aware of when awaking. For instance, in dream we could work out some question which we can't find the answer and think over all the days.
But about dreams predicting the future, I don't support this viewpoint. And I don't have this experience either.
