Example: Do dreams ever mean anything?
I know it is a silly question.
But can some dreams ever be signing anything, or representing anything?
I had a dream that me & this guy I liked kissed.
Could it mean anything? Hahaa.
Dumb question but oh well.
Job 33 (Amplified Bible) 14For God [does reveal His will; He] speaks not only once, but more than once, even though men do not regard it [including you, Job]. 15[One may hear God's voice] in a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men while slumbering upon the bed, 16Then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction [terrifying them with warnings], +++"Dreams is defined in Webster's Dictionary as a "sequence of sensations, images, thoughts, etc., passing through a sleeping person's mind" . Dreams have been a topic of study dating back to 4000 B.C. One may say that dreams have been around as long as the first civilization came to be and are just a normal part of human existence.
In our dreams, we can go anywhere, we can be anybody, and we can do anything. When we dream, we are like passengers on a moving train, unable to control our actions and choose surroundings. We let our mind take over. Sometimes, dreams can be understood in the the context of repressed thoughts. Dreaming serves as an outlet for those thoughts and impulses we repress during the day. When we go to sleep at night and slip into our dream state, we feel liberated and behave and act in a manner that we do not allow ourselves in our waking life.
Visions and ideas can come from your dreams. Authors, screenwriters and poets turn to their dreams for stories. Artists and musicians explore dreams for their inspiration. Dreams can help us find solutions to our daily problems and see things from a different perspective.
In this section, you will find a vast array of information on dreams, from its early beginnings, type of dreams, how to remember your dreams, babies and dreams, and much more. Hopefully, you will learn some interesting things about dreams.
The Importance Of Dreaming
Do you dream in order to sleep or do you sleep in order to dream? Although that question remains debatable, researchers agree that there is a purpose and importance to dreaming.
Research have showed that people who are deprived from entering the dream phase of sleep or the REM stage, exhibit symptoms of irritability and anxiety. In one dream study, volunteers are woken up right before they enter into the dream state. Then they are allowed to fall back to sleep. Again, right before they enter REM sleep, they are awaken. This continues on through the night. The volunteers sleep the same amount of time as they normally do. The next day, these volunteers go about their day and observed to be disoriented, depressed, crabby, and quick tempered. There is a general impairment in their daily functioning. Some eat more than usual. As this study continues on through several nights, subjects become more and more agitated. It is found that deprivation of REM sleep causes over-sensitivity, lack of concentration and memory loss.
This study shows the importance of dreaming and its role in your well-being and health. Some researchers believe that dreams help you to tackle stress. Dreaming is a necessity and helps to recharge the mind and revitalize the body.
The Mechanics of Dreaming
While you are dreaming, your body undergoes noticeable changes. Your adrenaline rises, your blood pressure increases, and you heart beats faster. Given this hyperactivity, it should be no surprise how someone with a weak heart can die in their sleep. Their heart may not be able to withstand the strain and the erratic changes that their body is going through.
Dreaming takes place during REM, which stands for Rapid Eye Movement. It is thus called, because your eyes move rapidly back and forth under the eyelids. REM sleep takes place in the fourth stage of sleep and accounts for 15-20% of your sleep time. From the point you fall asleep, it takes 30 to 90 minutes before you start dreaming. You cycle through the 4 stages of sleep and may enter the REM stage 4 to 7 times in one night. During REM, your blood pressure and heart rate fluctuate and increase. It sounds like your body is going through a lot, but in fact, it is quite the contrary. During REM, your bodies are completely immobile and your muscles remain completely relaxed. You may shift in your bed throughout the night, but when in REM, you are completely still. This is commonly known as "REM Paralysis".
In REM sleep, the mind is as active as it is during waking. However, chemically it is different. REM is controlled by the excitability level of the cholinergic neruons. Noradrenaline and seratonin are missing in the brain when in the dream state. These chemicals allow the brain to carry out task, solve problems and remember things. This is a reason why you find it so hard to remember your dreams Yourself
To see yourself in your dream, is a reflection of how you act and behave in your waking life.
I coworker was about to get fired, and the day before it happened officially, I had a dream about him giving me two Tarantulas in a box, and he gave me a cup of bugs to feed them. The next day at work, someone brings up Spiders and specifically Tarantulas. Well, that made me remember the dream. About 3 days later I'm watching a DVD about "A Haunting" a t.v show, that a friend gave me before he got fired. I just remembered. (I know, I see a pattern now) Well, it has Tarantulas. I did a little research and it says it's bad luck or health. Anyone else think they might now what it means?

Example: What could this dream mean?
My dream started out with me and my english teacher together, I assumed I must have led him on or something because he would kiss me on the cheek a couple of times and I when I wouldn't do the same and as many times he would hit me or pull my hair. He would ask me to meet him in his room after school and I wasn't into him so I wouldn't go, but whenever I came back to school the next day he'll get me alone and physically abuse me. It would happen so often I would be so afraid and try to avoid him and hide but somehow I would always get caught and the abusement would continue. And wherever I would hide it would be a place I've never even been before in reality. What could this dream mean? Thanks for all who reply.

Example: What does my dream mean..?
Last night I had a dream about that I went over to the guy's house I like, Rob, and I ended up spending the night. Well, in real life he's a sweetheart, no joke. And seriously a guy every girl looks for. But anyways, in my dream, me and Rob eventually start 'fooling around' and we end up having sex on chair. Now, lets fast forward, either Rob has a party at his house or we go to someones party, Rob ends up having sex with another girl on a bed. I see it, and obviously I storm out. And I don't think Rob has tried apologizing or anything.
But do you think m dream could mean anything? Its nothing like, crazy, but I have a gut feeling that it could mean something.
And my mom used to always tell me, that if you have a bad dream, it usually means the opposite.
Example: What does this dream mean?
I saw my boyfriend, (whom my relatives know nothing about in real life), back home, and he has paid them a visit, and turns out to be he is an old friend. I learn this from my mom who tells me that he is in love with a woman, and is going tomorrow to Jordan to marry her. By the way, I have nothing related to Jordan. Then I saw my boyfriend, but he didn't see me, saw him with a burned nose and burned chin. My mom tells me that he is being treated by a doctor, and he will marry his daughter who has psychiatric issues.
And all this was during a bus drive, when at the beginning the bus was driving without a driver until I asked my mom to take charge. Then we continued walking.
What does this dream mean? What is the meaning of burned nose and chin?
