    I studied dreams in psychology all the way back

    at school so this is 6 years ago! Here are some psychological theories about dreams having meanings. I’m going to start with the most well known psychologist that everybody knows - Freud suggest that the unconscious mind expresses itself in dreams so dreams can uncover their...

    Yes! I have a dream dictionary book

    that my mom got me a few Christmases ago. Most of the dreams that I've looked up seem to have been accurate for the most part. (That I remember). Haven't used it in a while. Also having trouble remembering most of my dreams. But yes, I think all dreams have a meaning.

    I have a "thing" with this guy

    for almost 7 months now. I met him almost two years ago and he had a girlfriend at the time. He impulsively kissed me one day at work and his relationships was over. Now we kind of have a thing going on but we both don't want to call each other boyfriend/girlfriend. He was with...

    She's the only person I dream about.

    Everytime she appears on my dreams, she's the only part I remember.

    Dreams are so crazy. Especially being a part of

    church.. A lot of people say that they're a way God can speak to you. Which I believe. But then they say that all "nightmares" are from satan/demonic. But I don't agree with that. Sometimes I think God wants you to experience some of these said "nightmares" in order to open your...

    that I was being chased by a mastiff or a bloodhound, not sure. But at the end of the dream he bit me on the ankle hard and I remember feeling it or thinking that I felt it, but I knew that when I woke up and moved my leg the pain would be gone and it was. Very vivid dream...

    I believe that God, Jesus,

    angels and individual spirits of loved ones who have passed and made it to Heaven can send dreams to people who are in the physical world. I believe these dreams have a meaning. Regular dreams, not so much all the time.

    Well it's not a belief it's the truth.

    Your brain uses the thoughts you have had through the day and makes them into a second reality in your mind.

    I often have dreams about spiritual guidance,

    angels or possibly about future events. My dreams are precognitions to what might happen in the world.

    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...

    I cant stand the dreams where your teeth fall out. I know it means something but I am not sure what. I believe all dreams have a meaning to them. Well....some dreams anyways. You can usuallly tell the differences. It is a different feeling when you wake up.

    if you hear the sound of breaking glass in a dream but don't actually see it happen so you don't know what broke? The sound was so loud I woke up and checked the windows in my house. Also, in the dream I knew I was responsible for the breaking of the glass.
