Although I don't believe that, It's sometimes does. When I was a kid, I have had a dream that I picked one thousand dollars when I went to school. After that, I really pick one thousand dollars on my way to school. And now, I never make a dream, so I don't believe it now.

Many people believe that their dreams mean something or represent something is going to happen. Therefore, there is an activity in folk which is called "dream-decoding".

I don't believe that dreams mean something, but it has ever come true at once. When I was a kid, I have had a dream. I picked one thousand dollars on the way I went to school. After that, I really pick one thousand dollars on my way to school. And now, I never have a dream, so I don't believe it now.

On the whole, I think what we dream means what we think in reality. When we put honest in mind, we may get a good repayment.

I always dream of having myself in conditions opposite to what i like. During the days of studying for exams there was a dream that kept haunting me in which I am to be late or not able to write .... :-| I think it has to do with our fea {-; rs and the stress we may have under certain circumstances. It acts also as a flashback as we sometimes see mixed things of childhood like a memory that highlights what stocked in our mind from reality and one's imagnation.

not all dreams mean something, but just the one that can be retrieved by the dreaming humanbeing can only have a meaning when a practitioner dream interpreter describes it. this very one may predict the future of the dreaming human being if its interpreted properly

Honestly, i forget my dreams directly after i wake up :mrgreen: !

But i deem that the dreams indicate for something in the foreseeable future that the person really wants.

Sure, I think our dreams mean a lot of things to us, even if they didn't come true. But if we stopped dreaming I think we would die.
Sometimes my dreams or some of them came true, but also they didn't come true other times.

But anyway I am still dreaming and I will dream because I have a faith that my great dream will come true.

Does anyone know from a reliable source what provokes the dreams? I sometimes dream things that I couldn't have imagined awake. I think that they depend on what stresses me/ what I want/ I did/ what matters, but I'm not too confident on this theory

Actually, psychology as a science has many theories about dreaming,moreover, you can find a specific approach - Oneirology - scientific study of dreams. Your dreams are reflections of your real life, any actions, processes and so on which have happened are collected by your unconsciousness and during REM sleeping this information transfers to images and you have seen a dream. Another question, could dreams predict the future? probably yes for the nearest future, because it is a result of deep analisis and hard work of brain in a logical way. {-: Anyway, dreams show us our own persoanl problems and teach us how to solve them.
For example, you can consider for study Froud theory and his popular aspects
Firstly, Freud pointed out a constant connection between some part of every dream and some details of a dreamer’s life during the previous waking state.
Secondly, Freud, after studying the dreamer’s life and modes of thought, his mannerism and apparently insignificant details of his conduct, come to the conclusion that there was in every dream the attempted or successful gratification of some wishes, conscious or unconscious.
Thirdly, he proved that many of our dream visions are symbolical, which causes us to consider them as absurd and unintelligible; the combination of those symbols, however, makes very transparent to trained observer.
Fourthly, Freud showed that sexual desires play an enormous part in our unconscious, a part with great hypocrisy has always tried to minimise, if not to ignore entirely.
Finally, Freud established a direct connection between dreams and insanity, between the symbolic visions of our sleep and symbolic actions of the mentality deranged.

yes i believe that our dreams mean something but only sometimes, not always. because its a kind of thinking.dreams can be about the our day. but some people especially special people can see the future in their dreams. in some cultures in history people believe dreams and they organise their future. for example Ottomans used to use this way before big wars.

Do you believe that our dreams mean something?

Hm... In my opinion, dreams comes from the unconscious. Example; in a day time, you think about a beautiful girl. And in night time when you sleep, your brain can't stop think about it. So your brain is imagine about that girl. You ask this girl to become your girl and she accept it... and this is dream... {-: But it will not really happen on next day. When you ask that girl to become your girl, you got slap on your face... :lol:
So... I believe, dreams doesn't mean something... {-:

-- Please correct my sentences ---

Hi eveyone!

I don't think that dreams have a speacial meaning for us. Our brain assimiliate all the things, experiences and thoughts of our daily life … dreams are like a mirror of our unconsciousness.
When we feel pain or fear or happiness, then we can live through these moments or feelings in our dreams. Maybe it is possible, that a dream can give you inspiration for the solution of a problem or it inspires you for some ideas. But that's all. People shouldn't think about their dreams too much … it is better to think more about life :-)

At the moment I'm dreaming of spring ... but it's still wintertime :cry:

I'm not a psychologist but according to what I have read in psychology book about dream.
Dream is present in our subconscious mind. It is a reflection of what is inside our subconscious mind. Thus, we see events of images when we are sleep. In my opinion dream can mean something only if you will believe in what you have dream. So, it is a matter of claiming that it mean something.

Yes, dreams are way of nature on telling or informing us about something that we (must) need to do. Or others that may affect our environment like friendships work, family and even future. I’ve actually dream a lot and every dream differ from other, which I think have a significant relation to what I’m doing currently.

Dreams are many interpretations regardless of what have you dreamed of. But, it’s up to you if you will believe or ignore them. As much as I can remember, the most common fictitious dreams that I’ve is falling from a high-rise building. Therefore, I think that I may fall to something I don't know. What I can only think is, to fail on achieving my goal; and that’s why I keep on doing what I need to do to achieve it.

I think dreams are often our deep-seated fears or worries going around in our head when we are asleep. Sometimes past events can relive themselves in a dream until they are recognised and dealt with.

I don't believe that our dreams mean something because they are create thanks to our imagination. What is more I think that our dreams are not true and sometimes they tell the stories which we want to experience. Nevertheless in my opinion dreams are necessary in our lifes because thanks to them we can fulfill our dreams in the imaginary world.

I think that some dreams can mean something. Some people have prothetic dreams and it comes true, but some people like me have strange dreams and it doesn't mean anything. People by years want to know if dreams mean something that's why they write book of dream interpretations. ;-)

I often dream, but I don't interpret them. Many people believe in different meanings of dreams. Moreover, They looking for interpretation of various books. I think it's stupid, because belief in dreams is just superstitio.
