    I have had several dreams of being trapped,

    no escape. In one dream I am in a house being flooded by water, I am up to the ceiling with little air left and I awake just before I go under. In another I am in space, pitch black. I am in a car on single lane paved road. There are no sides to this road, if I am not very...

    I wish I could make my dreams a reality.

    Or a movie at least, because it would be a pretty damn good movie

    Heaven

    What follows is an account of a dream I had 35 years ago. It was of a place I read about after “seeing” (as in a vision) it in the dream. You’ve heard of it; it’s heaven. And you’ve heard the descriptions of it given by people who have had near death experiences, so...

    foreshadowing. I strongly believe in dream

    foreshadowing as I have experienced it. I had a dream 2 nights ago that depicted the younger boy at my school who I basically feel a need to protect because he was bullied and I helped him. In the dream, he was following me around and watching me. I realized that the dream was a...

    Does anyone know what it means

    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.

    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 often have dreams about spiritual guidance,

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

    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.

    But I do not believe they are mystical

    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...

    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...
