Do you believe that dreams generally have deeper symbolic meaning (i.e. they are about issues that your subconscious is trying to sort through)?

In a way yes. Like if you are worried about something I think it may visit you in your dream one way or another.

Sometimes, I'll dream something and then a while later - days, weeks later, it comes true. It's a scene, and when it happens it's like Déjà Vu, but I know I've seen it in my dream. Happened 2 or 3 times now, it's pretty freaky.

What if your dreams are full of violence and sex?

Oh yeah once I dreamed about math my teacher was Hamtaro n he said unless I solved this long math problem I'd never leave the maze... I asked him if there was cheese at the end and he said there used 2 b I asked where it went and he said the dog ate it all. For some reason tht was the last straw -.-

Boobies what does it mean

I always have dreams of about stuff that I worry over but it's not a "vision" or anything, usually it just involves the people with what I'm worrying over and some farfetched fantasy adventure with me as the heroine :)

I think they do because sometimes I will have a vision & then it actually happens.

@cup0pizza - I think it's pretty obvious what those dreams mean.

What do dreams that make you sticky or wet mean? Are they symbolic?

@ mustangmad are you a fan of Joe Rogan by any chance? lol

My dreams attack me.


11/27/11 5:16 pm

I know I dream some weird stuff. I have seen things in my dreams, and days later it happens. Thats only happened to me twice


11/27/11 4:07 pm

I believe in alternate universes aka 'string theory' physics, and I think when we dream we are crossing over into an alternate dimension or universe.


11/27/11 4:06 pm

yea, my dreams have actually happened in real life. I've known things were gonna happen before they happened, because I started analyzing my dreams deeper. I call it a gift, friends are scared to hear about my dreams and others think I'm crazy lol...

I use dreamdictionary.com, I think their interpretations are, for the most part, spot on. But I absolutely think that dreams have a bigger meaning, they sometimes tell us subtly what to do.

I have dreams and sort things out that happen and sometimes see things that happen a few days later.

And yes, dreams are definitely the brains way of sorting things out and understanding things. I don't think they tell the future or anything like that, but when you sleep your brain is processing and it is actually more active while you sleep than when you're awake!

@Lazis- you've had dreams, everyone has dreams! You just don't remember them. I only remember my dreams once in awhile but that doesn't mean I'm not having them.


11/27/11 3:47 pm

Just because you can't remember a dream doesn't necessarily mean you didn't have one. Sleep research indicates your brain goes through events of the day, helping to make short term memories into long term ones.

I said no. Or at least I hope not considering I haven't had a dream since around 3rd grade. Which is probably bad.

My junior high English teacher (I'm in high school) taught me that dreams are your subconscious communicating with your conscious, and I still believe that, I think it makes sense.

They are a representation of what is going through your subconscious.


11/27/11 2:50 pm

@kyheff thanks for your insolent remarks. It seems like you took the time and effort to post such an irrelevant comment.


11/27/11 2:24 pm

yes, it is a fantasy outlet.

3rdsides, school nights are just a no-fly zone for electronic entertainment. too bad that is reality ;-(


11/27/11 2:06 pm

@MyOpinion. I thinks you were trying to save someone from the government. While those two seals were soldiers from the navy seals trying to look for them?


11/27/11 2:04 pm

@MyOpinion no once can fully interpret what you just dreamed. Only you can. And by making connections to your actual life.


11/27/11 1:50 pm

I think some dreams are just that, dreams with no meaning that we're maybe triggered by some movie, image or person we saw. Sometimes dreams do have a deeper meaning and its just our brain trying to solve a problem we went to bed thinking of.

I once had a dream where I was a pelican hiding fuzzy blue hats on roofs trying to keep them from the government while two seals were ice fishing in the streets, if anyone can interpret that for me I will be very impressed!


11/27/11 1:39 pm

@poller14 thats true. The brain is constantly at work. Thats why they advise us to not watch tv after a night of studying, so that way our brain can focus on reorganizing what we've studied. Learned it from psych class freshman year.

@oldlady that totally happens to me all the time... I am too young to play the lottery though so if I see any numbers I'll let ya know... Lol


11/27/11 1:37 pm

I don't remember my dreams most of the time but when I do, it usually has to do with something that bugged me all day, and it does help me figure it out.


11/27/11 1:37 pm

@oldlady ME TOO! Its like i have to question myself if im still dreaming or not.

11/27/11 1:37 pm

It makes sense because your brain is so busy focusing on other things during the day so when you dream your brain is thinking about how to fix things


11/27/11 1:35 pm

Wow. The female % is high on this, most likely they dream about they're relationship with a douchebag guy or a romantic lover.
But anyways, my dreams do make connections in my actual life.

I have dreams and then have these déjà vu moments where what I dreamed about is actually happening so I would have to say yes. Now if I could only dream about some lottery numbers! Lol

sometimes it does except when you dream of something completely fictional

I dreamt about car jacking during a zombie apocalypse, so no

It's called SUB-conscious because you will not be aware of the resolutions your mind comes to as a result of the dream. I don't believe dreams tell the future or anything mystical, but they are certainly therapeutic for your neurons. Psych docs can tell you that.

Uhhhm. I suppose. If I'm worried about something/one or I'll dream of people I've thought of recently.
I doubt I'm 'working' anything out though. My dreams go no where and make so sense, -if I even remember them at all.


11/27/11 12:56 pm

I think it's possible to interpret meaning into anything, really. It depends on the dream and circumstances, but I'd say no more often than not.
