Some people think that their crazy dreams mean absolutely nothing, but I think that dreams carry a lot of information pertaining to our lives. I've always been interested in breaking down the images and what they could really mean. I've found that dreams can help me sort out confusion or questions that I haven't been able to answer while I was awake. What do you think? Have you had any dreams that you thought could relate to your life?

People usually dreams when something is going through their sub-conscious mind, be it their internal wishes, or some disturbing matters etc etc... In my case,usually I have a deep sleep at night,so cant even recollect the dreams that goes past my mind... however,I think that the funny imaginations that I dream of rather helps me to have a good night's sleep :)

I'm almost always able to remember my dreams, and I usually dream every night no matter what. My dreams always seem to reveal something in my life or have a deeper meaning. I don't know a lot of people that dream the way I do, so I feel blessed to remember my dreams and have them so frequently.

I believe dreams carry real meaning it's just that we can't really fully understand or interpret it unlike God's servant Joseph in the ancient times he was able to interpret dreams how I wish I can have that gift lol

I am able to interpret my dreams sometimes. I get dreams almost every night and usually I can decipher what is going on or what I'm supposed to learn from it. Now, this doesn't happen always, but I like being able to dwell on what I experienced in my dreams...it helps me sort out life sometimes.

once, i had a dream where a dumb cop came to my door with a snake in his hand. now, i know cops are snakes but what else does that symbolize to me? well, at the time i was dealing with someone that i mistrust. so, both symbols...the cop and the snake could represent that person in my life...fear and mistrust.

Absolutely dreams carry real meanings. In my view of point, dreams relate to what have happened aroud you. I believe that we all have experiences that some things we had done before appeared in our dreams, but usually in an obscure way. Sometimes many scenes joined together making an almost totally new story. Haven't you? But I refuse to admit that dreams can predict something. So if you have a nightmire it dosen't mean that you will have a bad luck or something terrible will happen. In fact we keep dreaming all through the night but we only can remmember a little part, so most of time we even don't know whether our dreams are good or not. Just take it easy and never let a bad dream get you down!

Hi Torrs13, i do believe that dreams reflect one's life meanings, meanings which when correctly interpreted having something to do with day to day living and that sort of things. I have many instances, where dreams had proven to be correct. So relying upon my own experiences regarding dreams, i must say i do believe in it. Thank you.

I think that they can mean more than just nothing there is something called lucid dreaming, where the dreamer can take control of their dreams, or they can just sit back and just watch (in a conciseness state) taking in all of the details of the dream like a movie =] I think that dreams have a lot of potential.

Hi, Torrs! This is an interesting discussion. I have always believe that some dreams do have meaning and it is up to us to put them together based on the past event that occurred in our lives that will somehow give us signs about something that is going to happen in future. It's quite a mysterious, but it always like that to me and my family. So, we never took lightly when we have dreams.

Dreams really do carry real meaning as most times they are the workings of our subconscious mind. The real challenge comes with knowing which aspects of our dreams to take literally (if any at all) and really just interpreting our dreams. I have had dreams that actually related to my life and have helped me to sort it out.

My dreams do not convey any message. They do not have any meaning nor do they give any hints of the future. There is a saying that the dream one sees at sunrise or early morning is likely to be true. Such a thing has not happened to me. Perhaps you can keep a tab of your early morning dream.

i have a few dreams which came to past so i think dream do contain a certain meaning behind it just that we never though of it with much detail but my dream are all short like 3-5 seconds so i can't really see my future so therefore i can say that my dream can guide me to know what i might be doing in the future

I have always been a strong believer that some of the messages that life is trying to convey to us was being relayed to us through our dreams and like what happened to our oldest parents Mariah and Joseph God did bring the messages that he wanted to tell them through their dreams, right?

I have had a lot of dreams which I think are in every way connected to my life including disturbing ones, funny ones, ones which I have wished never ended! Dreams do carry a lot of meaning since it is our subconscious that is the most active when we are dreaming. And whatever thoughts or apprehensions we have,manifest themselves clearly in our dreams. What happens with me is that when I wake up I do not remember the dream too distinctly after a few minutes. Nevertheless,I love dreaming!
