    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 don't really know

    if my dreams have meaning. Last night I dreamt of a very very best friend that passed away over year ago. She came into my life, when I really needed a friend. I have trouble letting people in, getting close, and trusting them. But she just worked her way into my world and...

    Last night I had a very strange dream

    and I'd love to know what it's related to. I dreamed that it was my birthday and everyone was saying happy birthday but I was more concerned about how someone in specific didn't say happy birthday. Later in that same dream I was being chased by some psychos. I was hiding in my...

    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.

    Some dreams are too meaningful it feels like

    its happening in real life. Like this one time I dreamt about people who talks behind my back, turns out, they really do.

    A Weird Dream

    Hello everyone. My name is Alex. I am a college student. Like many college students i am caught in somewhat of a spiritual limbo, where i'm trying to find myself spiritually. I was raised in a religious household however so many facts point to no scientific evidence of an...

    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...

    This dream wasn't like most dreams where you consciously know it's a dream. Here's where it begins...It's a stormy night almost hurricane weather. There's a religious war going on, one where everyone was against Christians. All of the Christians were staying at a local church...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
