Do you think that what you dream about at night is significant with what is happening in your life, or things that you worry about? Or do you think dreams are meaningless and our dreams are just random?

My dreams have everything to do with how my day went, what I'm worrying about--whether I'm aware of it or not--and what will happen in the future. There are many times that I dream things that actually happen the next day or within a close time frame. This comes in handy if it's something bad. If I dream of wrecking my car, I avoid that location and 80% of the time find out that there was a wreck there at the time I would have been there. I listen to my dreams very carefully!

Wow, that's pretty amazing. That has happened to me a few times, but not as regularly as it happens to you! Is it sometimes scary, for example if something awful has happened in a dream, and there is no way of you doing anything about it?

There's nearly always something I can do about it, even if it's to plan a way to minimize the damage. Sometimes I don't remember the dream until a few minutes beforehand when I get a sense of deja vu and then I can only brace myself, mentally or physically, and get through it as best I can.

Again, I have to say how amazing this is. I know what you mean - sometimes I only remember a dream half-way through the day when something relevant happens

No, it definitely has to do with what is going on in our lives. It is like a filing system. I have heard researchers talk about it on the Discovery Channel I think it was. Very interesting.

I agree, it's a very interesting subject. I'd be keen to see what scientific studies have been done with regards to dreaming

I believe that dreams do mean something but what I'm not sure!! I've had several dreams about my old house and where I worked several years ago (they were good times) lately which is strange, the dreams were quite odd but I can still remember them so vividly, it could be to do with the fact that i've recently started to talk online with friends I worked with in that area but I really don't know as I know that I would never live there again!!

Hi there, thanks for the response. Yes that is interesting, maybe you are right about the reason being that you have been speaking to friends from there? Or is there something about that area you miss in particular?

I think it is significant because I believe what we dream about is either something that you are actively thinking about or something that you have in your sub conciousness.

Hi there, thank you for your response. Yes, often people dream about things that are important to them or things that they have been thinking about during the day

I don't know. Sometime i think what we dream is something what we worry,but when we not sleep we never thinking about that. am not so sure maybe just something always avoid them and then new come when you sleep.this is just my theory.

I think dreams are definately connected to our life..as in what's troubleing you or something you have on your mind.I think there might be more to them but I'm no expert so I can't really say.I used to dream ALOT! Not so much anymore.

Thanks for the response. It seems most do agree that dreams do have significance. I dream pretty much everyday, sometimes they are completely random and other times they are connected to experiences from my past or present

I actually dreamt that I had to clean the electric fan in the kitchen then the following day, the electric fan got broken. One time, I also had a dream that a cat stole the bread on the table. When I woke up, the bread was gone. lols But I don't know if it was really a cat who stole it. I also had a weird dream one time of a falling branch then when I woke up I had the urge to call up my 2 friends and tell them to take very very good care that day. Later on in the afternoon, they told me that a big branch nearly fell on them while they were walking outside school. It gets pretty weird sometimes... They say that dreams have three aspects spiritual, health, and emotional. I believe that they are significant to our lives. Sometimes they are just random.
