What is the significance of dreams?
The significance of dreams for each of us is a personal matter. It relates to each person’s experience and emotions. Your dreams and your life have significance impact on each other. What is going on in one will affect the other.
Dreams use a symbolic language. Every aspect of your dreams contains hidden meanings and hidden messages. When analyzing and interpreting dreams, it is important to understand the stories told in dreams. You are the best person to analyze your dreams because different symbols have different meanings to each person.
Why do we have recurring dreams?
Recurring dreams are among the most common types of dreams. Recurring dreams show the dreamer an issue or problem that is not being confronted in his or her life. A deep look at these recurring dreams can help. Understanding the recurring dreams can help you understand and fix the problems you are dealing with in real life.
Are all dreams in color?
Are all dreams in color? I once asked my father this question. He told me, only creative people dream in color. Most people dream in black and white. I always wondered if this was true.
My father-in-law and son are color blind. They do not dream in color. After doing some research, I discovered most people dream in color but may not realize it. People may not realize the colors in the dreams. Since color is such a natural part of our day-to-day life, many people don’t notice colors in their dreams. Dreams fade so quickly, the sense of color may be the last thing the conscious mind realizes.
Do dogs dream?
Do dogs dream? Studies have shown dogs have the same brain activity that humans exhibit during dream sleep. Scientists see this as proof that dogs do dream. I, for one, do not need a scientist to tell me that dogs dream. Being a dog owner and I have watched all three of my dogs while they sleep. They dream I have witnessed it. Leelee would often cry in her sleep. Watching her sleep would make me feel so sad. I know she was reaming about being is the shelter. All three of my dogs would dream of chasing something, their legs would start moving as if they were running. Fred would often get a huge smile on his face while he was sleeping. I am sure he was dreaming about eating. Fred love to eat. So yes, dogs dream.
Do men and women dream the same?
Men and women both experience the same brain wave activity during dream sleep. The content of the dreams of men and women differs. Studies of dream content have shown that men dream more about other men than about women, while women dream about men and women equally. Women also dream more often than men. Women often have more vivid dreams and they remember what they dream more often than men.
Do People With Autism Dream?
Do people with autism dream? There was a time when doctors and scientists did not think people with autism dreamed. They believed people with autism brain activity never slowed down enough for them to go into a dream state. Parents coming forward about their children having nightmares and sleep walking has proven this theory wrong. People with autism do dream.
Why do we remember bad dreams more often than pleasant dreams ones?
One reason we remember bad dreams more often than pleasant dreams ones is the most vivid dreams are nightmares. There is more of an emotional feeling in nightmares, and this affects our bodies as we sleep. It often wakes us up if we are having a vivid nightmare. We will remember it better because of the powerful emotions that we felt.
What does it mean to dream about dreaming?
Having a dream within a dream is a way of dealing with items from the subconscious mind. There may be something the dreamer does not want to face or deal with in real life. A dream within a dream may prevent the dreamer from waking up prematurely. This helps them to confront and deal with the critical issue that they need to confront and gain control of.
Will I really die if I hit the ground in a dream where I am falling?
Will I really die if I hit the ground in a dream where I am falling? Many people who have described hitting the ground during a dream about falling are proof positive that hitting the ground in a dream is not a terminal experience. It is true, however, that dreams of falling often wake the dreamer, and that is probably where that old legend got it’s started. But no, you will not die if you hit the ground in a dream you have where you are falling.

I had no idea there were so many fascinating nuances about dreams.I, too, fantasize in color.
OMG my dreams are in color and they seem so real! I can say “I wish this was just a dream but I know it’s not” while I’m dreaming! Sometimes I wake up, know I had a dream but can’t remember anything about it. A few days later it pops up in my head!
That is cool that it comes to you later sometimes.
I didn’t know such interesting details about dreams.I dream in color too
That is so cool.
I haven’t really had many dreams that I can remember as I have gotten older. I used to remember my dreams all the time. It was like I was thinking of a story I could write a book about but I couldn’t remember all the details when I woke up. And the story seemed lame on awakening… LOL
Thank-you so much for stopping by and reading
I’m attempting to learn to lucid dream, but so far no luck. I do keep a dream journal and find the symbolism becomes quite clear over time when you do keep a journal.
Lucid dreaming is a lot of fun. It takes practice don’t try so hard. Just relax and fall into it.
I also believe dogs dream. Our Zoey barks and runs in her sleep. You have to wonder what they are dreaming!!
Like this! I do also believe dogs dream. Our dog Zoey “barks” in her sleep, and “runs.”
I enjoyed reading this post, Brenda. I never considered if men and women dream the same but it was interesting to learn that women dream more…and more vividly too.
