Do you believe that our dreams mean something?

Post by 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?

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

Post by 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.

Post by 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

Post by 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...?

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

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..

Post by 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 ..

Dreams...

Post by Dithzie » Tue Jan 18, 2005 11:22 am

Dreams are just that...dreams. They are just a manifestation of one's subconscious. You dream because your brain is on hyperdrive. It doesn't stop working even if your body is on sleep mode. Sometimes you dream what you want to dream. There are times when you're half-awake you're thinking and dreaming at the same time. What you thought to be dreams are actually your imaginings. The boundary between sleep and reality gets mixed up in your head.

I don't think dreams are prophetic or that they give you warning of what's going to happen in the future. Things happen because they happen. When something happens that we think fits what we have dreamed of, then we assume it's prophetic and that a higher power gave us the ability to predict it through our dream.

Hi! :wink:

I think dreams do reveal something. Not exactly a prediction of the future, though it can be related to coming events. They're related with our general thoughts. Let's suppose, for instance, you've thought about a car or marriage. Even though those thoughts are not as frequent as you might think, they remain in your subconscius, and they're revealed in your dreams.
When it's a situation you've been living and they manifest as one of the greatest possibilities in these events, people think that the dream was a prediction. :roll:

I just think of dreams as possibilities of our life, experiences and thoughts we contemplate deep inside. No more. :D

Hi :wink:

Dreams!!! Sometime I go to sleep just to dream ( I know it is strange) I like 2 dream and it is mean alot in my opinion. Therefore, many of our dreams happened and become real. I think that our psychological state affects our dreams largely. For example, sometime you had a nightmare when you are frightened. But sometime my dream means nothing for me specially if I dreamed of someone who I thought about him/her before I sleep and when I get up I say to myself I saw them because I was thinking of them just that :!:

:wink: Sometime I just think about something or someone to see it in my dream.

Thats all :?

Yeah,I do believe so.
I did have many prophetic dreams,especially when I was very young.Many things shew up in dreams became true afterwards.
And now sometimes I feel very similiar with the place I had never been before,just the first time went there or the people I had never met before,just the frist time to know....
I think destiny has been doomed before I was born...(a little far from our topic though...)
In China,there is a superstition but I don't think it's superstion that children and old people who are going to die could feel something and see some ghost which other people in other ages can't see....When I was young,I always feel I was haunted....even in dreams I often saw many ghost around me and talked about something,I was exteremly scared and had my hair stood on....But this feel doesnot exist when I grow up...Oh,maybe I would feel it later in my later years...

dreams are the messages from the future

Post by milvankale » Sun Jan 30, 2005 1:58 pm

yes dreams are the messages from the future.ı believe that.
ın my opinion there are 3 kinds of dreams.
one of them is a message from future. İf you control your mind you will see lots of cases which are came true in your dreams.
second one, in your day life you want and desire somethings very much, you can see it in your dream in the same night.
third one is the utopian ones, you can see them in your all sleep time.
in a normal day people see lots of dreams but you can only remember the last one before you awake.


have nice dreams and try to remember your dreams.
who wants to be my penpals??

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... ;)

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

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.

In some cases dreams show you the life that you wish to live. They create imaginary worlds. You can have things that you want and are with people that you wish. I think that the wonderful life are in a dream. It is a poetical thought, but I dream it all the time. :wink:

He dreamed of his future wife's cell number.

My psychology teacher told us that he kept having the same dream about people in his dream had the number 100 on them, or they kept talking about 100. And henceforth, the 100 friends was created after the dream. This is his site.

It is nothing but a miracle to me.well,the fascinating dream,unconsciously, I have ever created ,would ultimately turned into a real.amazing?? and when I reviewed such kind of dream, which at once convinced me that I might have supernature power, it possessed a common characteristic----abut to life such as a future circumstance, that would rush into my life after approximately 5--8 years.But that is nothing,if compared with my another bizarre occasion that frequently happend in my daily life--I always meet familar places, words,or plot that had ever occoured in my former dream.specifically,last year summer vacation, I went out with my new friends who was just acquainted with 3 days ago,nevertheless,suddenly,a strange but a familiar picture floated above my mind when I was about to across an intersection lines.clearly,It means ,the streets/plaza/mobiles,all around me are jumped out of my dream at that breath of air.Thereby,I got petrified in no time,because I was shocked by the current night scene --- sideway,shoppingmall,sidebys,even the words my friends said to me,is accurately and impressively identical to my dream which is experienced in my fictional world (I have a super memory)3 years ago.U know, it is a sort of complicated feeling for me to accepte it,however,definitely,it is ture.who can explain that????

my mum always says that there is some significance in every dream that we have seen.Especially whenever she sees a crowd in her dream, she comments it as 'there will be a funeral!'and each time it comes true :shock: Well , i had some dreams which came true, but that is not exactly the same :P I guess most of them are just the reflections of our subconscious mind, i mean i generally see dreams about the things that i have talked about in that day.However, it is fun to hear comments about your dream!

Yes! our dreams always means something.e.g., our hidden wishes, what we observe in our daily life or some time people come in our dreams we miss very much etc.

Some time I do remember my dream, some time don't !

For those people who feel as if they have already seen something in their past dream and they came it across later. May be every body or atleast for sure, so many people have prophetic dreams at different levels in thier life, but these dreams cannot predict future. Mostly people don't realize, remember or focus on them. According to muslim believe (need to confirm) some times you have dreams which are 40th part of the complete prophesy, depending upon your righteousness which goes high and low in your life cycle, e.g., seeing person or place in your dream you happen to visit in future, but it doesn't explain the purpose good or bad. Some time it does, but that you realize mostly after the event, but you cannot judge before time, hence no future prediction. And you feel after a while or a day, as if you have already seen it in your dream which you just experienced or learnt recently.

This kind of experiences also give you the significance, and up to some extend the proof of forces which are beyond your comprehension and top of the most "The One" How created them and all !!!

P.S. Righteousness increases with your good deeds and decreases with your bad deeds !
According to religious believes complete and correct prophesis were only given to Prophets by God(Creater of the creations) through different mediums, e.g, angels or dreams etc.
Few examples of Universally True Quranic prophesis:
- Don't you see the earth and sky was together and I have separated them. (Chapter 21)
- I have created all the creatures from earth and all the living beings are made out of water.(Chapter21)
-I have created sky upon earth for your protection and all the sun, moon and star are floating in their skies.(Chapter21)
-Don't you see sun, moon and trees prostrate to me.(Chapter 3)
-Don't you see that all the skies are standing without pillars (Chapter 21)

I think it’s quit the contrary situation. Our real life has an impact on our dreams. In general, the more stressed we’re in the daytime the more realistic dreams we have at night. Unfortunately, sometimes we just can’t get away from our everyday routine and go on solving different problems while sleeping. I believe that from time to time our dreams might help us to solve some difficult situations, which wasn’t clear for us before. It’s just because we can’t quickly mosaic all the scattered events of our usual day.
Nevertheless, the clue of solving problems while sleeping is in our ability of clearing up our minds before we go to sleep. Only if we get completely relaxed before we fall asleep we might find a decision. We have to throw out all our daily thoughts and let our dreams to do their work…

I think our dreams are a strange status of our mind, that cannot be explained. I have never dreamt about the future, but I believe that we receive a lot of advises from them.

I think our dream has something to do with an unsolved problems or intense emotional feelings stored in our subconscious mind.

I'm really uncertain if there is a meaning to our dreams, but if our dream is depressing we normally seek for meanings or interpretation, this is maybe because it's a person's innate characteristic to look for solution in every problem...

everyone choose their own truth :-)
Nevertheless, many approuches in the psychotherapy consist of work with dreams. Of course, we cannot predict the future but we can solve some problems in our life.

The good way for understand our dreams cosciously is association that give some insides about your life.

In my country, there are many books which explain the meaning of our dream. For example, if you see a tooth [ ur tooth broke ], it's the sign of unlucky in the near future. :-D

I saw sometimes it's true. I don't know it has any relations reality, but when it said that you would be got in stuck in a loving problem as triple love and it's true in next 2 weeks, what do u think? Do u believe that it's really interesting!?

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

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... {-:

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 think that our dreams mean something, but not always. Everyone can interpret their dream however they want. I can say that almost all my dreams mean something. Sometimes I have prophetic dreams which turn out to be the true. For example when I have nightmares I can suppose that in a short time something bad will happen. I think it is an evidence that our dremas can mean something for us.

I believe that our dreams mean something. We often dream about the experiences of the past. But sometimes we dream of things that have not happened yet. I dreamed once that my grandfather died from cancer. After one year it turned out that my grandfather had cancer and died two years later.

I don't believe that our dreams mean something.

I don't remember my dreams but one day I have a dream about I was falling out of the building.

I have never had a prophetic dream.

It seems to me that dreams are the reaction of our mind to what we've experienced or what we feel emotional about. But they do not really mean anything. Though people have been trying to find some deeper sense in their dreams for ages. That's why books about interpreting our dreams sell so well. Anyway, everyone can believe in whatever he wants to as long as it doesn't harm others. As for me, I don't believe that dreams have some meaning, I don't remember them very often, though sometimes I feel woried if I dream of something bad happening to me or my dearest people.

I think that our dreams mean somenthing. A lot of people have prophetic dreams. When we have problem or when we worry about something we experience that when we sleeping. We often imagine our desires. My mother say that we should interpreting dream but in opposite mean. For example, when we dreaming about somthing badly we probably succeed in reality.

In my point of view our dreams have a lot of different meaning. Usually we dream about our desires and concerns, this is why people are looking meanings of dreams in special books or at a fortune-tellers. We can find out something about our future. For example healthy tree in our dreams means luck, recovery or good message but damaged tree is a sign of problems, failure or worries.. I think that it is better to dream about good things.

In my front of view dreams are stroris in our imagination. It doesn't mean anything, there are only images in somebody's head. I don't remember my dreams, but when I was a child I dreamed about space and cows :o And this does not mean that I should buy cow and teach it to fly. It's funny that people believe in dreams, really. Prephetic dreams don't exist! Science exists only!!!

I think that dreams are only dreams and often we don't remember they. Dreams doesn't mean something but they can show what makes us fear or something which is stressfull for us. I often have a dream about holidays, so I think it shows that I have enough of school, but it doesn't have some diply sense. What is more... I'm sure that everyone have ever had dream about falling down, it is most meaningless dream

I think that our dreams mean something, because we usually dream about things that we worry about or what we would like to come true. When we think about something all day, we dream about it. Sometimes people have a prophetic dreams, but they don't always mean something. Also I think that they depend on our humor.
