Do you believe that our dreams mean something?

Postby TalkingPoint » Fri Mar 12, 2004 3:20 pm

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?

    dream: a series of thoughts and images that happens in our mind when we sleep
    prophetic: telling us accurately about something in the future
    predict: state that something will happen in the future

Directly
I believe in dreams because I always feel that something _ if it is not all _ from the dream can acheive !!
When I was in my secondary school I was usually dreamming in the mathmatical functions answers. I was keeping a paper and a pen near to me to write any thing I feel I can use it directly !!

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 !!

dreams

Postby suhana » Tue Mar 30, 2004 2:49 am

Whether you belive it or not, I love dreams! I don't mind if it is a sweet dream or a nightmare. The point is, I see my dreams as shows during my sleeping time. It is like watching myself acting in a film where I am the main character and I have the ability to do certain stunts that I couldn't in real life. Sometimes, I keep on dreaming the same dream and it is actually a very frightening one. This dream is one of all that I believe tries to convey a warning so that I am prepared to face a great hurdle in my life. I am not afraid. It keeps me alert.

I don't know about my dreams can predict something of the future or not, but it's funny when I start to think about something a lot, I'll have dreams about it. Sometimes, those are nice dreams, and sometimes they're just plain nightmares.
The last dream I had was about my pets, dwarf hamsters. I've had them for nine months so far. Their average life is usually about a year or two. For regular and roborovskii hamsters, their average lives are up to three years if they're in good health. Thus, I've been having dreams about my baby pets going to the rainbow bridge. I've also had dreams about them got eaten by cats. Those are nightmares. I hate that.

I think that the sleep can manage to predict the future. Exists some elements with specified meaning if you see them in a sleep, for example the teeth. If you dream that they fall down to you the teeth this meaning that slightly bad it is going to happen to you. So ... You don't dream this.

Dream is magic, I try to understand it sometimes.

Postby Judy2004 » Sat Jul 31, 2004 11:21 am

As a female, I seem more sensitive than a male. I think dream is a magic mind activity. Every dream, though we forget most of them, try to explain something to us.
We almost have the experience:We keep do something everyday,if some day we deprive ourselves of it, it is high likely that we dream it; If we repeatedly do something or think something before we sleep, it is most possible that such thing will occur to our dream.
Sometimes a dream can tell something to us. If we can spend a little time on it, we can get more.There is one case about me: I am not suffciently confident to speak in public and I try to improve myself. However, I have not got many opportunities, so recently most of my dreams are spreaded by giving a speech in front of lots of people. In my dreams, I can express myself fluently and convey my opinions clearly. I can control my emotion well and just feel at home speaking with my family. After I awake up, I feel more easy and confident than the day before,as if I practise myself in my dreams.
Sometimes, we do not know ourselves very well, due to subconscious, dream can make a suggestion to us, if we can follow some scientific analysis about dream.

Blind peoples dreams

Postby kenji » Sat Aug 07, 2004 7:40 am

I was wondering about the question about blind people dreaming, does anyone have any facts about how they dream.
What do their dreams look like or are their dreams more audio based...?

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!

dream a little dream

Postby kenji » Thu Aug 12, 2004 10:49 am

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

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!!!
