    I had a dream early this morning

    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...

    What does it mean when you dream yourself

    having a blonde streak? Or when in combat, like, you're in COD or something?

    Too Close

    I recently had a dream that a friend wrote me a letter that they had started an online christian radio station. I found it really weird cos he isn't that type of guy. Well last week I was googling online christian radio stations and found one that had his name in Canada!

    Teeth

    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.

    I had a dream that I dropped everything

    The experts said that sometimes we dream to

    compensate what we deprive of in reality. Whenever I had a bad day, I would try to sleep more because I believed that dream would export a real smile from my heart.

    that special person you love? .. Even if it's a simple dream but just knowing that that person was there made everything better, sometimes I don't think of her and she just appears, I love it

    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...

    Symbols are the language of dreams.

    A symbol can invoke a feeling or an idea and often has a much more profound and deeper meaning than any one word can convey. At the same time, these symbols can leave you confused and wondering what that dream was all about. Acquiring the ability to interpret your dreams is a...

    I think dreams are a way of tapping into our

    more spiritual side. I can most certainly say that the phase between being both awake and a sleep manifests some pretty unnatural occurrences. But, of course since I'm not completely conscious during this phase, I'm absolutely terrified but I'm too tired to really be scared if...
