    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...

    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.

    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...

    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 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...
