    into horrible situations. For example, I had a dream last night we accidentally left her at a store and she got kidnapped. I woke up sweating and crying as I was so scared. What does it mean? My sister and I do get along(I'm 17 and she's 9) however sometimes we fight. Would...

    Interpretation would be appreciated!

    My dream was set pretty far back (mid-late 1800's if I had to guess) in the same area that I live now (rural farm land). The dream would flip between 1st and third person. I was living with two men, they were brothers, I'll refer to them as "John" and "Will" to make it easier...

    the bed ritual. ever want to ask your dreams

    something specific? try a bed ritual- it can be anything you want, but it has to be done before bed and it has to have meaning to you. for me, I wanted to ask my dreams about how I truly felt about someone who has hurt me- I was really confused and hurt at the time. my bed...

    and ever since I've been having reoccurring dreams about her, very frequently. I always know that she has died in the dream so I'm happy that we have another chance to talk, I guess. I've also had a few where I've actually said to her about being dead and it turns out it was all...

    but I'm confused as to what last night's dream is trying to say. In my dream, I was the state I was before sleeping; thinking about talking to this guy, and in the dream, I told him I love him. But I don't. I'm pretty sure I don't. But the dream keeps popping back in my head...

    Dreams are basically your subconscious mind

    testing your reaction to an environment. It enables you to learn new things even when your sleeping. Bacall dreams are to give you experience from things you have not done.

    I believe they have meanings

    and show your self conscious but I recently had a dream about being called that my crush had been arrested and he wanted me to come to him. Apparently it means we have something to address between us. I don't know if this is true but I definitely know this has a meaning.

    All this week I have been dreaming with

    different family members . I live far away from them ( thank god) and I have been dealing with bad dynamics for a while. It seems my subconscious wants to make peace with them and want me to move on. Regardless, I am happy I am sleeping so good.

    Dreaming in technicolor.

    .. I always have dreams. And I feel they have a meaning. They're trying to tell you what your subconscious mind already knows. Do they near a premonition? Maybe, Maybe not. When I was little, I was told that when you fall asleep the soul leaves your body temporarily. What the...

    or psychic. They are personal to the dreamer and represent problem solving recent life situations. Any symbolism in the dream is created by the dreamer. Anybody can interpret their own dreams if they practice asking themselves the questions that uncover the subconscious workings...
