Example: What does this dream mean?
I was at some government sponsored program with my group at this moderately large facility that was created for entertainment purposes and I got on one of the trains thinking that it would take me along a scenic tour of the entertainment / camp grounds but after getting on the train I realized that the train was going in a straight direction rather than a circular round direction and that it wasn't going to return to it's original destination. I figured I would get off the train before I left the camp grounds (and assumed that the train covered a small section of that camp ground) but I stayed on the train too long and got way off the camp grounds. Then I called them to ask them where I was, and I realized I was lost.
Somehow, I ended up back at the camp grounds. I was at this old camp that I went to a couple of months ago, and the guy that I was crushing on was there too. We were going through this obstacle course that was supposed to simulate what life would have been like if we had lived in Nazi Germany during world War II as a Jew and I felt uncomfortable going through the obstacle course cause there were times where I felt like they were using the leather head rest they placed around my neck to choke me for the purposes of making me uncomfortable and nauseous. In my dream the rest of the park was normal and created half by technology and half by nature but it wasn't extremely technology or extremely natural.
Afterwards, I was hanging out with a bunch of people who belonged to the same government group as me and I told them "I want to go visit that park again just so I can talk to Toni" (which was the guy that I liked) then David looked at me very smugly and said "beauty fades" and I realized they all thought I was an idiot for basing my romantic relationships on physical attraction.
Then I dreamed that I was walking around the shopping store with a Dan (another guy I used to like) we were walking from left to right and I told him "I'm a loser, I'll do anything for a good looking guy." and I started telling him about my obsession with this really handsome, skinny, fit, tall and perfectly dressed guy named Tyler (who is German) We were at the Eatens or the Bay.
That's when I woke up
Do dreams in our time have special meaning?
What have researchers learned about dreams?
“Everyone dreams,” says The World Book Encyclopedia (1984, Vol. 5, p. 279). “Most adults dream for about 100 minutes during eight hours of sleep.” So dreams are a normal human experience.
Said Dr. Allan Hobson, of Harvard Medical School: “They are ambiguous stimuli which can be interpreted in any way a therapist is predisposed to. But their meaning is in the eye of the beholder—not in the dream itself.” When reporting this, the “Science Times” section of The New York Times added: “Within the school that places great value on dreams, there are many approaches to finding the psychological message of a dream, each reflecting different theoretical outlooks. A Freudian will find one kind of meaning in a dream, while a Jungian will find another, and a Gestalt therapist will find still another meaning. . . . But the view that dreams have psychological meaning at all has come under strong attack from neuroscientists.”—July 10, 1984, p. C12.
Can dreams that seem to impart special knowledge come from a source other than God?
Jer. 29:8, 9: “This is what Jehovah of armies . . . has said: ‘Let not your prophets who are in among you and your practicers of divination deceive you, and do not you listen to their dreams that they are dreaming. For “it is in falsehood that they are prophesying to you in my name. I have not sent them,” is the utterance of Jehovah.’”
Harper’s Bible Dictionary informs us: “Babylonians had such trust in dreams that on the eve of important decisions they slept in temples, hoping for counsel. Greeks desiring health instruction slept in shrines of Aesculapius [whose emblem was a serpent], and Romans in temples of Serapis [at times associated with a coiled serpent]. Egyptians prepared elaborate books for dream interpretation.”—(New York, 1961), Madeleine Miller and J. Lane Miller, p. 141.
In the past, God used dreams to give warnings, instruction, and prophecy, but is he leading his people in that way now?
References to such dreams originating with God are found at Matthew 2:13, 19, 20; 1 Kings 3:5; Genesis 40:1-8.
Heb. 1:1, 2: “God, who long ago spoke on many occasions and in many ways [including dreams] to our forefathers by means of the prophets, has at the end of these days spoken to us by means of a Son [Jesus Christ, whose teachings are recorded in the Bible].”
1 Cor. 13:8: “Whether there are gifts of prophesying [and at times God conveyed prophecies to his servants by means of dreams], they will be done away with.”
2 Tim. 3:16, 17: “All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching . . . that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.”
1 Tim. 4:1: “However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances [sometimes conveyed in dreams] and teachings of demons.”

Example: What can this dream mean?
i have had this dream multiple times throughout my life so far and it has become more frequent.
it starts out with me in a large marble/pearl staircase like a grand ballroom. and i am with my parents and one other person who always is different. then we buy a movie ticket from one of those automatic fortune teller boxes. we go up the staircase that turns blue as we ascend. it then leads to a red hallway with a door at each end. we enter the door on the right, and crawl through a small orange tunnel that gets smaller and smaller as we travel father into it. the we come to a small beat up metal hatch, when we open it we are thrown out the side of the wall into a large bowl. but to fall into the bwl we have to fall of the hatch through a giant blender and not be sliced to death. then the bowl carries us to a lake made of what looks to be blood. it gets deeper and deeper as we swim across, and dark jungle trees surround the lake so we cannot see what lurks around us. once we make it across the eerie lake, we must run down a rickity old dock made of several layers including salty ladders waiting to snap. then a creature with the skeleton of a human and the skull of a bull holding a long staff like dagger begins to chase us. if we make it to a safe golden dock, at the very bottom of the rickity dock layers, he cannot get us. but as we run i am behind everyone else and as they descend the last ladder to the safe dock, as i am climbing down that last ladder, it snaps and i am almost dropped to my death but i stay alive and drop down to the safe dock. then the bull skeleton guy looks at me for a while then turns and leaves. the safe dock connects to a small sandy shoal ad we walk across it to the other end of it where we exit out a large ornate gray door.
Example: What does this dream mean?
I have a recurring dream where I am driving my car from the backseat. No one else is ever in the car but me. The other details sometimes change but those details are constant. The last time I had this dream was last night. I was driving when suddenly I realized I was not in the front seat like I should be. I was coming up to a red light and I tried to break but because I was in the backseat, I couldn't break in time and ran the red light. I then noticed a cop car turn on it's lights so I tried to pull over to the side of the road, but instead I had to completely turn around and come to a violent stop. What could this mean?
Example: Do dreams mean anything?
I have had the last 3 nights just a random dream like the first night I was just flying and trying to run away from something. Second night I was trying not to get hit my a train and just last night I had a dream that I was in school and walking in the gym and a guy bumped into me and I thought my arm was broke but then at the end it was fine.
Do these dreams mean anything or symbolize anything?
Example: What do your dreams mean?
I had the craziest dream that i went on a road trip with all my friends. To make a long story short, they all got killed except my best friend Brianna. The "killers" gave me the option of killing her and living or both of us getting killed. Of course, i couldn't kill her, so they killed me. I don't know if this has some secret meaning, or if it was just some weird random dream. and its not like i was watching some scary movie or anything before bed. Please decode my dream!
Example: What does this dream mean?
I had a dream last night that an army of bears invaded my neighborhood. A panda (although not really a bear) broke down my backdoor. I think a polar bear had dreadlocks, too.
We had to prevent the bears from killing us, of course.

Example: What does this dream mean?
So I had a dream once. My mom committed suicide so I got shipped off to an orphanage. Some girls were put in crates to be shipped off and the others went ice skating on this huge skate rink. I was skating in a green dress and I reached an obstacle course. 4 teenagers were there. At the end of the course we reached an old lady's house and went and played virtual bowling in the basement.
Any ideas? XD Will pick a best answer!
