Do you believe your dreams?

Do you believe your dreams are potents of the future or are they simply the way our brains deal with day to day events?

Mostly they are a way of our brain to deal with day to day events, however, those dreams can tell me of somethings that are bothering me or stressing me and in that sense they can, in a way, point me to things that need to be changed, thus having something to do with my future. Some dreams bring a feeling that they're warning me or pointing me in the direction of something to happen in the future. They usually feel different and more urgent.

I agree the dreams i remember tend to be showing a particular course of action

I believe that my dreams are about things that need resolving my life. They can appear to be really prophetic, but I believe the Self is all-knowing anyway. To me it must be, because I look back through my life and see a definite pattern emerge of what's happened to me. There is some higher state of consciousness involved and it is something beyond the little me and what I want. It seems to be what my soul wants - if you know what I man. - Derek

Sometimes I think they are potents of the future but most of the time they are the way our brains deal with day to day things.

Hey Eskarena, I'm thinking both. As there are certainly times Im in the middle of my day to day life and realise I have dreamed something thats happened or is happening, or about someone I meet. Nothing dramatic, just little things. But I do realise this is not always the case. Sometimes I have visitors in my dreams like passed loved ones or spirit guides, these are always lovely dreams :) But then other times they are just nonsense dreams, scarey if Im too stressed I think, and like you said sometimes my brain just working things out whilst Im resting. I must say to this day I still find it amazing that people from all over the world can have the same dream, thus creating books on Dream meanings etc...

When my dream turns out to be a good thing like i won a lotto, I became rich and became popular, I wish i will come true but I am not expecting. When my dreams was about dying , accident or everything negative , I pray for that not to happen. Dreams for me is just a reflection. Those that are not happening in our waking hours are happening in our dreams. It maybe a sign or it can happen but that will depend if it is really destined to happen. We can't rely on dreams because these are not true but we can take note of that for references.

Dreams for me only mean three things: 1) They are what we feel deep inside us or it has something to do with our emotions. 2) It sometimes shows or gives you the idea on what might happen somewhere in the future. 3) It's just a dream-just a meaningless dream. I like dreaming because it usually tells me what I really do feel if ever I'm confuse or such. It sometimes show me a portion on an event that might happen in the future though the event for me are usually useless. Each time I have a dream, I usually check online for some interpretations and try to reflect for awhile if it has something to do with me or not. :)

I do believe that my dreams are trying to say something. Whether it's about me or not, they are still trying to tell me something, in my opinion. They may not always be telling me something, but a lot of times, they are.

I believe the power of drams .... I have seen many of my dreams came true... The power of dreams are unbeliveable .... It is an imagination beyond the thinking of a normal human being...

I think sometimes they are just ways for our brains to deal with different day to day things. There are so many things we need to deal with and i think dreams are one way our brains deal with it all.

My dreams bring up situations I need to deal with. Problems I had buried in my sub-conscious come out. Even if the dream makes no sense, look deeper they do have relevance to our waking life. It is not always obvious how a burned wallet has to do with confusion of our identity or changes we need to make. But it does. I recently started talking to a friend. We use to speak everyday for hours. After getting into my current relationship, we only spoke once every 2 or 3 months. Those conversations were short. Prior to my current relationship, we talked about taking our friendship to another level. We agreed not to, for various reasons. After that we still talked for hours, but never spoke again of a deeper relationship. He did make innuendos about it afterward. He has commitment issues, actually we both do. After our last conversation, I had a dream of a therapist I know, asked if my feelings for him had changed. After we talked, I thought of how easy we communicate, how happy I was to talk to him and how we talk about our emotions, just like before. We are both confused about our feeling for each other. I have wanted to talk again, but haven't because of the confusion on my end. So, I now know my feelings have always been there. They were buried in my subconscious. So, that's why I take my dreams seriously. My mother believes the same.
