Do you believe that dreams generally have deeper symbolic meaning (i.e. they are about issues that your subconscious is trying to sort through)?
It's so amazing to me that there is always a large percentage of ppl that believe in magic. U watch to much tv
I don't think it's that, I have some déjà vu moments and I have no idea where they come from.
To an extent. Definitely not always, but since they are products of our brain just running, I can't believe there's NO reason behind it.
This one time I had this dream......
Unless u fall asleep with the tv on. Then u could be the main guy off pawn stars. What dose that mean
This is a poorly put question because it's too general. I believe that dreams are our brains sorting through what's going on in outlines and what we've encountered, but I don't think it's symbolic. It's just a jumble of fragmented thoughts and worries and memories.
Some times, but rarely. The strangest dreams I have has a prophesier in it but I never remember what she said. Also, the dream is located in the same area every time!
Sorta.....but I just think its only really rare.
i realized that i wanted to be a therapist and soon later relized that it was because i had traumatic expierences as a child and wanted to help others in the same situations
the only thing I could really see as fortelling would be if you dreamt you were going to wake up
yes and no
Sometimes they may.
@ hope pray for guidance in your dreams. Not long ago I was under attack from someone who hated me. God showed me what to do in a dream. It sounded crazy but I obeyed. It worked! may you be protected in your sleep.
I think they incorporate things that are on my mind, but never "purposefully". I believe that dreams are pretty random, without particular meaning or intention
I would say yes. Someone I know who sometimes goes by Gamidame had a dream his mom was bloody, when he woke up, she really was bloody and was rushed to the hospital.
Yes I always dream of toilets. then I wake up and have to pee really bad. true story.
the brain uses symbolism to process the subconscious which we then see through dreams
@awesomeism- I've heard of dreaming in black and white, but never in tints. Interesting.
I wonder what color blind people dream in?
@hope- that's ironic, considering your username.
or in different tints
sometimes I dream in black and white instead of color
@ Mistrygirl dreams foretold the future in the bible. I'd say you have a gift.
I had a past life dream. I was very young and would have had mo reference to the things that happened.
The interesting thing is not only dream-meaning a debate in the school of psych, so is the existence of a subconscious. Both were originally proposed by S. Freud, and discredited by many other schools/theories of psych.
I figured someone would comment calling me crazy...
I'm a very lucid dreamer so no. But my dreams are always amazingly fun and interesting.
Most of my dreams showcase my underachieving, inadequacies, failures, missed opportunities, & the like :(
absolutely, I love dreaming & analyzing them in the morning. it's fun to think about what was going on in ur subconscious
Not generally, but often.
Dreams are about past experiences, jammed together by your subconscious. No more, no less.
Maybe, there is some evidence suggesting so, but idk if it's definitive. And if you dream lucidly, then I guess not.
bingo!! one of my favorite franz tunes
Franz Ferdinand :)
I don't know. Some dreams I have are relevant to something that happens a while later.
do you know who sings that song
duh. it's when you know it's a dream. I have them all the time. I know it's too ridiculous to be real.
James-but do you know what it means?
Not at all. I dream up some weird stuff.
I like that song, "lucid dream"
One time I had a lucid dream. It is the best thing ever. It was and probably will be the only time where I have to ask myself what I want to do, regardless of if it is even possible.
And one time I had a dream that I was spinning around really fast in an inflatable chair and when I woke up I was really dizzy and could barely walk. Spooky.....
Sometimes when I have things on my mind all day I have very vivid dreams
About them. I also think thatsome dreams r messages from god bc I had a dream that I died in a head on car crash the night before/ morning of thanksgiving. That gave me something to b thankful 4.
I searched the deeds. earliest deed for my house was in 1860. but the old court house burned down in 1860. so.....
my house was built pre 1860 and there's a grave yard in the back field.
I fell asleep on my couch... I dreamt I was getting terrorized by ghosts as I was sleeping on my couch. I would wake up but couldn't differentiate reality from dreamland. because in was in the exact spot in my dream. then I fell back into the same dream. maybe they really were ghosts.
I always dream about the issues in my life. so yes.
