Having dreams is a commonly shared aspect of everyone's lives. Dreaming is something we do whether we are sleeping or awake. What we dream about could hold some sort of importance over what we do or how we feel. Unfortunately, most of the time when we dream we forge what it is that we've dreamed about shortly after waking up. It is suggested hat those that plan on interpreting their dreams keep a diary and write down what the can remember as soon as they wake up. If you are one of these then you should keep a journal and a pen handy next to your bed. Dreams unify with a certain sense of reality and there are various types of dreams. The meaning of your dreams varies upon the type of dream that you have had. There are those who have nightmares, daydreams, lucid dreams, recurring dreams, etc. It is important when determining the meaning of your dreams to figure out whic type of dream you have had. This discussion involves nightmares and their signifigance. Nightmares go beyond a silly depiction of the boogeyman waiting in dark corners or ghosts and ghouls in the night. When we have nightmares we experience a heightened sense of genuine ear. This experience can at tims be quite frightening to the person experiencing the nightmare. Nightmares are often remembered more due to the fact that you awake from them in a state of panic and heightened awareness. Depending on what you dream about, nightmares can be quite informative. They can determine what it is tht has you in a troubled state of mind. Often people will write a nightmare off as nothing more than just that but they can show you a deeper level of your unconsciousness that you are unaware of. Perhaps by interpreting your nightmare you can depict a bigger piece of your problems. Often when someone has troubles in their lives they have a hard time determining what it is that is causing so much stress. For example, if in your nightmare you feel afraid, it could mean that you are having troubles either in your personal or business life that you are afraid to face. If you dream of another, someone that you know, being afraid, it doesn't necessarily mean that person is afraid, but instead that you yourself are worried about the possiblity that particular friend is disinterested and nother there for you when you need them. For an actual interpretation into what certain nightmares mean, research what the aspects of your nightmare means such as where you are and what your surroundings are in your dream.

Are you into dream interpretation? If you are, that would be a good discussion thread for you. I bet it would never end. Just think of it as your office and you get paid for every customer that comes in by MyLot. Not much, but you got a customer base. Maybe someone who can interpret dreams can take this suggestion up. I will be one of your customers ...

That is actually an excellent idea. Yes, I have been doing an extensive study on the interpretation of dreams. I have done my best to get it down and have definitely helped a lot of my friends out by doing such too. I've thought about posting dream interpretaions for lucid dreams, daydreams and recurring dreams as well. I really like your idea. It definitely could be a never ending topic with what all the different meanings that there are. Thanks a lot. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

I hardly have nightmares, if I remember to watch what I eat. For me, nightmares are closely related to food. If you eat what doesn't agree with you, then you have nightmares. Eat simple food for sweet dreams and undisturbed nights.

That is awesome that you rarely have nightmares. Glad to hear it. And yes, different foods that you eat can at times affect the types of dreams that you have. Also, another reason why people have nightmares that involve food is that studies have shown that this could be a sign that you are lacking nourishment in certain aspects of your life. This is not the case with everyone and I'm not saying that is the case with you. Just saying that depending on the surrounding circumstance, if you feel starved in a certain aspect of your life then it is possible to have nightmares involving food. I'm glad that ou have found a way out of your nightmares. Hopefully others will keep that tip in mind. Thanks!

I used to have vivid dreams before. That was during the earlier times of my diagnosis. When I started in the process of accepting it the dreams are gone. I was prayerful at that time. Thank you for this post.
