The Meaning Of Dreams

Nobody knows exactly the true purpose of dreaming. It’s possible that our dreams are used for humans to consolidate its memories for things that happened the day before. Once in the dream state, it’s also possible that our brain pulls information that we need and disregards the stuff that we don’t. Many researchers feel that our dreams are like a noise in the background that is thought out and organized.

This would mean that our dreams are simply the brain’s way of making sense of unexpected transmissions happening during our sleep. Depending on the person, some will have the ability to control their dreams better than others.

These are the people that can make situations in their dream by thinking of an event just before they pass out on the pillow. It is a proven fact that humans need sleep to function properly the next day. If you so happen to be sleep-deprived, you will be more prone to suffer from hallucinations or a physical breakdown.

Even with scientific study on dreams we really dont understand the true meaning of dreams. It’s really up to the dreamer to make a judgement call. For the most part we have the people who believe in dreams and the ones who don’t. It’s a hard debate to convince somebody when we don’t have actual proof.

Many people still think that we just dream so our brain filters out the junk we don’t need; where the rest think that it’s something magical.  If you allow your mind to open up and try to embrace your dreaming capability, your powers are endless.

 

Meaning Of Dreams

Remembering your dreams is the first step. The second step is trying to remember and record your dreams. To fully gain insight to your dreams, you must remember that dream interpretation is similar to riding a bike for the first time, or learning a new language. Starting this new exploration into to the mind requires little work, because here at Dream Dictionary, we’ve put together 5000 words and symbols for the dreamers needs.

If you are the person who forgets your dreams when you wake up, then you have to follow a couple of steps to get started. The first step is to make sure you don’t rush out of bed when you get up from your sleep. The very moment you wake up you must take your time and think what events happened in your dream. You must put down every single detail even if you don’t find it relevant. The second step is to have a dream journal by your bed and write down what symbols you remember. The third step is recall your dreams in a backward sequence. Basically, start from the last event or feeling that you remember, and then go as far back as you can possibly remember. You must keep the last thought sort of like taking a picture. Also, this takes time and practice, and can be quite frustrating at times. Once you become good, you will be able to strengthen your dream memory, and later on, it will become as easy as breathing.

Dream Meaning: Jung vs Freud

The two famous psychiatrists that come to people’s minds when we analyze our dreams are Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. These men single handedly changed the way we look at and interpret dreams and dreaming.

Even though Carl Jung was Freud’s predecessor, they both had totally different views on the whole matter. In today’s world we are more open to Jung’s way of looking at dream analysis and disregard Freud.

To make it simple, Freud believed that our dreams are manifestations of our deepest darkest sexual desires that we have hidden in us. Jung, on the other hand, had a more simple approach to it; he believed that we can all interpret our dreams ourselves and each dream has a meaning behind it. Though, it doesn’t necessarily mean we have darkest sexual desires attached to every symbol.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. – Carl Jung

I keep have the same dream for the past week of me sitting underwater for long amounts of a time. I’m just sitting with my arms on my legs at the bottom of a 12 feet pool and I’m looking either forward to a darkish side of the pool or looking above me to see all the commotion and yelling happening. I see no people just the reflection of the outside and the water being wavy. But I don’t feel anything bad I just feel calm and a sense of major difference between being underwater rather than up there, outside.… Read more »

I’m not completely sure it does relate to the covid-19. But what you had been saying has actually made sense and answered some of my questions. Thank you.

I was busy doing something that time and I was inside a house which is not our house and I’m not familiar with it when suddenly I turned around and I saw my brother standing outside the door of that house and he called me but I did not hear any sound or voice coming from him. He waived at me while smiling and when I was about to run towards him he ran away from me going outside and when I followed him and look where did he go he immediately disappeared. During that time in my dream I… Read more »

How serious are you with this girlfriend? If serious, the thought came to me a saying I have said to my husband is “I’m going to love you till we are old and grey”-made me think of retirement home. So maybe you’re thinking in your dream she’s the one your soul needs till the retirement home (typically the last place you might go before you pass). Then the second half based off the first part could be you’re scared because it’s going to drain all of your energy (just like in the dream). If it has nothing to do with… Read more »
