about dreams...

Postby kenji » Tue Aug 10, 2004 7:34 am

Hey! im not sure if i do believe in dreams or not but i think they are amzing. think about it. you are not awake but you see images. it's also in color! and did you read about the discussion about dream in "TP Homework?" well i read it and i thought it was pretty interesting, so if you havent read it yet, go and check it out. anyways, what i wanted to say was, in that discussion, i read about interpretations about dreaming of "teeth," and it's amazing how our dreams connect on a subconscious level....dream on!

I believe that dreams mean something. I think our desires, our unconscience wishes, situations of what you presently are and an escape from reality manifests itself every night. See you in my dreams.

As I know ,dreams reflect our daily life . If a person think much of one thing he can dream at night . Dreams also reflect our heath . A healthy person usually has nice dreams while tired or sick one has nightmare .
I sometimes dream the same one what happened when I was a child .That dream was my childhood's desire .That wish have not been true yet and maybe it will be on dreams forever but wherever I think of that desire on my dreams it seems bring me more strength to go on !
If you have a nice dream ,congrat!
If you have a nightmare ,don't worry much .It says nothing !Your life is still beautiful !

I do believe dreams mean a lot, I am just too blind to see it. :? Seriously, some time ago I got interested in these things, and read a lot about dreams, interpreting dreams, and so on. But I didn't go too far into it, because there are more important things I have to learn :P like how to teach English . :P One thing i don't like- those books with suggestions how to interpret dreams, they are nonsense for me, i think dreams are too personal to be put into a book, so making them general. But if we are smart enough, dreams can warn us, they can tell us something is going to happen, good or bad. / in my country people say- if you see fish in your dream, you will get money . Hmm, believe it or not. I wish you all have a lot of "fish" dreams / :wink:

I think the word "dream" does not only refer to visions, which occur when we are asleep. It can also refer to an ambition or an ideal state of affairs. Every person on earth dreams every night. It follows then that something extremely important must be going on while we sleep and dream, yet in the industrialized world, the majority of people pay little attention to dreams, and sometimes shortchange themselves on sleep because it is perceived as lost time, or at best unproductive.
There is overwhelming evidence that they can be harvested to improve waking life, supporting Shakespeare's age-old claim by Mac Beth that sleep and dreams are the "chief nourishes in life's feast". Dreams do indeed offer opportunities for fun, adventure, wish fulfillment and creativity, deep personal insight and healing and all this at no cost and with no line-ups!

Therefore, I believe that our dreams mean something.

Do you believe that our dreams mean something?

Can you remember your dreams? What was the last dream you had?

Have you ever had a prophetic dream? What was it about? Do you believe that dreams can help us predict the future?

I do believe that our dreams mean something, often they reveal the deepest things in our heart or the things that are bothering us at the moment.
I have had some very special dreams, they always repeat themselves every couple of months.
In my last dream, i saw myself meeting with my friend-Maria Shibata from elementary school, in my dream i've finally been able to find her!
She still looks like she was in elementary school. Perhaps this is one of my regrets that i was not able to keep in touch with her and have not been able to contact her in any way. This bothers me and therefore she often visits me in my dreams.
Another dream i often have is where i see myself flying. I always have this feeling that we can all fly, it's just that we don't realize it. This is just all fantasy.
Our dreams can be seen as a place to escape from reality , or simply a place where we can imagine. We can fly , we can dance , we can be billionaires in our dreams. It brings a lot of enjoyment to be able to dream about things that could not possibly happen to us in real life

I had a strange dream that became true then.I had dreamed of seeing an old friend and she appeared some days after that. I was so surprised and don't know why.It was really magical.

Postby meiya » Wed Nov 03, 2004 4:53 pm

I dreamed I was sitting in the end of a train.And a voice told me that I must remember the number "94313" in my heart,than i would be safe.
When i woke up,i can still remember the number "94313",and suddenly i found that its form is very similiar to the word "Jesus" in some way.Then i read this number in chinese(you know i am a chinese),to my surprise,it sounds so similiar to the pronuncation of Jesus!!!

Nothing can predict the future, and so can't dreams!

My dreams are always a mixture, and a lot of funny things, such as a math teacher teach us football! But sometimes my dreams bring amazing feelings and I feel them very real, like once I rode on a horse in my dream, I can never forget what I felt!

let me just tell you..

Postby shatha » Fri Jan 14, 2005 11:16 pm

Hello everyone..
Actually I don't speak English very well but I'd like to share you in this discussion..
I am Muslim and I do believe that our dreams mean something but not all dreams. Why? Because the dreams are three kinds :-
1. Confused Dreams which refer to the devil's cunning and cheat.
2. Dreams results from what we think about in our wake .
3. An afflatus from Allah (The God) to the person.
The dreams of the prophets were all truth because it's from Allah. We read many stories about this in Islam.
The pious and good person rarely see confused dreams because the devil rarely could affect on them.
The prophet Mohammed said that if someone so nice dream he should thanks Allah because it was from Allah and there is no problem to tell the people about his nice and lovely dream BUT if he( or even she ) saw a hateful dream that means it's from the devil and he shouldn't narrate it to anyone except after three days since he saw that dream ; that if he still want to narrate it. Do you know why? *actually I don't know how to explain that in English but I'm going to try and hopefully you can get the point.* now why? Because if you saw a hateful dream and then you tell someone about it and he expound the ream in bad way just from his imagination or even you did it may really happen. So, in this situation you should expound it in good way. That doesn't mean that it will happen like you expounded but it's better than you expound it in bad way then it really happen . ( hopefully you understand what I mean , if you don't please ignore this part  ) everything is clear in Islam.

In conclusion I would like to say that it's wrong way that you explain your dream by reading the books which included some specific explanation because it differs form one to one. Even if two persons dreamed the same dream it may doesn't mean the same meaning may be because the first one is married and the other one is single so it is going different.
Thank you ..
