Example: Dream meaning?
My best friend/person I'm "involved with" with told me she had a dream that we had a "beautiful" baby. Actually, in her dream, it ended up with a name that I liked a lot when she told me what it was in real life. Funny coincidence.
Anyways, we've had some problems because of a transition from a friendship to a dating relationship, and at times she's very scared of getting closely involved for fear of losing me as a lover AND friend since she usually gets involved in relationships without strong positive emotional attachments to those men. I found this dream quite interesting and I figured some details might give a better reference point.
What does everyone think it means?
To understand a dream, it’s helpful to keep in mind why and how we dream. When we sleep, the body and perception systems are shut down, but the brain remains active. The brain thinks about what has recently been most active during waking hours—experiences, thoughts and feelings accessed recently whether consciously or not. The brain is still active, so it works on this content, but not in a familiar, rational way. During sleep, this material is not related using input from the external real world, but rather by the brain connections already established in the cortex. So the story connectedness isn’t like everyday experience, but rather a strange, circuitous flow from one image to the next. So dreams aren’t magical messages to guide our life, but dream imagery is taken from everyday experiences, thoughts and feelings that matter most to us during our waking life. So it’s a mistake to apply standard symbol definitions, such as Freudian meanings. All you need to do is think about what kind of imagery it is and how it relates to your daily life.
The significance of your friend's dream is that 1. she wants a baby and 2. she feels close enough to you that she could have the baby with you. She must have been thinking abut this alot recentlly, consciously or subconsciously, and the thoughts remained in her brain while sleeping.

I had a dream that this guy was running and hid behind a phone booth and shot once towards us as we were trying to turn into a street. The pop of the gun was so loud I woke up, but before i did I turned to my 6 year old son and he was bleeding above the eyebrow and was limp he was shot. When I woke up i got so scared i went to check him I hugged him and kissed him and moved him to my bed. what does this dream mean?
I have had several dreams where I have been unable to open my eyes, but still watch what happens in my surroundings; or I'm at least conscious of what's happening. The first dream I remember that I was driving down a familiar road, but I was so tired and I closed my eyes for a second. I then felt my car go off the road and I tried to open my eyes, but couldn't. I could only manage to drive while my eyes were shut, hoping I was I was in the right lane. The second dream occurred while I was in my car and I noticed a hooded man in the distance. I avoided him and then out of no where, he appeared at the side of my car and I tried to lock the door. I closed my eyes and I was unable to open them again, even though I was aware that he was there.

I had a dream last night that was so sick. I was on a dirty couch severely battered with my eyes stitched and glued shut. I was conscious but so injured I couldn't move. The couch had a strange texture and the room felt damp.

Example: Dream Meaning?
In my dream this morning, I was driving my car and noticed that I was getting low on gas. It was decreasing so quickly that I ran out of gas before an intersection and (Car shut off and stearing went hard) coasted through and into a gas station on the left. I believe I began feuling but realized I needed to ask the attendant something. As I reached the attendent I looked back and another customer was smoking or something and caused a huge explosion which I had narrowly missed. A few days later I returned to check about my car to realize the gas station had been removed and the attendent told me that my car had been destroyed. Initially I was upset but quickly realized I was lucky to not have been injured (others had died) and thanked the attendent for being there. hehe i was kinda happy thinking my insurance would pay the car off, but the dream was odd for me
