I believe that dreams offer solutions to what we are living in the waking, some dreams are like messages from guides, or from a less rigidly programmed, wiser, eternal part of ourselves. I believe the dream takes images from our subconscious to communicate meaning. I believe they can be short term or long term. Why do you ask if they can tell the future?
I agree. You can choose how to respond to your present and this can change the future, I'm not sure by how much...
Dreams are real, at least mine are, I take every dream I can remember seriously and see them as warnings and possible good things to come.
Dreams are the manifest form of past present and future hopes and fears.
Yes they can give hints of the future...reveal secrets from the past...and help guide/shape the present.
Brain cells making connections, bringing to life deep thoughts and memories, jumbled into a short segment, to understand one would have to be in such a state of mind, almost detached from reality and solely focused on mind and soul.
I've had some dreams that have told me the future but they were not specific. I had to look at them from a different perspective to be able to see it. I so believe in premonitions, I get them fairly often....
Dreams are just sub conscious thoughts, hopes, fears, worries and all that, jumbled up and put back together in the form of a dream, they cant tell the future, nothing and no one can do that.
I think dreams are dreams. They are random and don't really make sense most of the time. I never understood why some people would go out on a limb to try to define what their dream means. However, if someone has the same dream over and over or if the dream really, really feels vivid and non-ambiguous, then MAYBE it could mean something about yourself.
No, I don't believe in the future aspect of it, unless you have a premonition. I believe in those. But as far as random dreams, I just write them down becuase they're interesting, but then I just move on as well.
