Do dreams mean anything?

someone told me tht the kinds of dreams u have mean something like flying I'd like to know if it's true and what other dreams mean

I have heard a lot of people asking this question.. AND I HAVE THE ANSWER!!!!!! : a dream is your brains natural review system, you see the brain will often replay your actions of that day or past to adapt and you see what you did wrong or right. Like in the time of the more primitive man, say he fought a bear and lost so the man would have to run away right, so a dream would in turn replay that action he may coupe with it better! It also applies in more modern times; the brain can actually remember a face from a long time ago any YOU may have forgot it but your dormant mind has not. Therefor you dreams will repeat that face and make it appear as though it's a vision or even dega-vou ( I really don't know how to spell that). Thus that is the brains adaptation of dreams

Absolutely. Dreams are the way your brain files memories into memory, but you're just watching. The subject is enormous, but this is all I will say.

I disagree, when I dream i have at least some control over what I'm doing, one dream I had I was walking down the street and saw several people walk into the elevator, I stopped and looked over the corner ino an elevator to see a troll-like thing standing in the middle (I have the weirdest dreams, I can list dozens of WTF dreams) anyway I moved away from the door and made myself wake up right there.

Good for you, but dreams are subconscious and you can't control them. You can simply get the feeling that you're controlling it, but in reality, you're not. It's your dream. Of course you would feel that you were punched in the face. That's how your brain registered into memory.

This is a complicated question. Dreams by themselves may or may not mean something. Recent scientific research has theorized that it is a way for your brain to file things in your memory that happened during the day. Some people say that stress came come out in dreams. Others claim that their dreams predict the future.

Dreams can mean something if you act on them. If you have a dream about someone you have had a falling out with and it inspires you to talk to them, then it did have a meaning, if you interpret "meaning" can also be defined as significance.

Not all dreams mean something most are your thoughts playing out,but some do have a meaning but only the person having the dream can know what the true meaning of the dream in question really means, it could be a warning to take notice of a certain issue you are having in your day to day activities,thus giving you an opportunity to change or alter what ever it may be if needed.Or some dreams are said to be a glimpse of future events that cannot be changed.

omg this is kinda scary coz for me I tend to have recurring dreams over a span of years and I don't understand them and sometimes they are unsettling...like things that seem true in real life are not true in the dreams and they keep coming back to me every once in a while. Then either a couple to many years later that recurring dream makes sense. I never forget the recurring ones. Those are the ones that most definitely are trying to tell you something that at the time you are unable to figure out.

I heard that when you fly in your dreams - it means that your growing
usually when you have a good dream..it means that something bad is going to happen.
when youre in a wedding dress for example.
Type in dream book in google.. there you will find info on what dreams mean)))

some dreams do have a meaning. Some dreams are just the memories in your subconscious. some are the result of some kind of physical activity, some represent your emotions but there are more than that. try not to share your dreams with people. If you see a good dream share it to the person who you think is sincere to you but if you see a bad dream just pray to God it never comes true, if its the middle of the night change your side. Try not to share that dream with anyone cos its better. this is just a little knowledge i have about dreams. May all of your good dreams come true & bad ones would be nothing but dreams only. God knows better.

if it's unicorns and stuff like that, then probably not. but if u r the main person, then there is a VERY high chance that they are true. i have dreams that happen in real life so, yeah they mean something. mostly, it's just replaying wat u did and wat u thought about that day, but on occasion, they are ur xtra senses telling you what's to come. this is sometimes; not always.

Sometimes. Sometimes it predicts things and some of them are pointless. Like if you're SO excited to go to football practice, you might dream about football practice. My dreams are usually a mix of things that happened that day. My friend has dreams sometimes that predict the future. But I think it's just a coincidence.

Ok, this is bugging the HELL out of me. Dreams are a recollection of the day's events, stress, feelings, and even distant memories. Dreams help us learn, remember, and envision what could be. Dreams do have interpretations, but dreams are mainly just derived from thoughts and actions, logic, etc. Also, we have 3000 dreams or so a night. All lasting anywhere from 3-6 seconds, or if in REM sleep (REM has 90 minute intervals), they can last up to 6 minutes. A lot of REM dreams are darker or carry more feeling. These are the ones we remember. A lot of them also have some sort of connection with sexual arousal. They sometimes contain our deepest wishes for anything. Also, The mind cannot "create" images. Everything is derived from what we see. So, if you see a weird sea creature having intercourse with Man-Bear-Pig, you've seen some form of those things somewhere, wether whole or in parts. There. Those are dreams.

Dreams come from your imagination. At night when you go to bed your brain goes through everything it saw in the day. What you see during the day effects your dreams. You might not realize it, but if you saw a 2 second picture of cats, you might dream about cats! Or maybe you saw a picture of a plane that made you think of flying. Dreams come from something you saw during your day or heard someone day! Your dreams are also based apon what your nervous or scared on. If you have a big SAT quiz, you might dream about failing and getting in trouble.

some cultures study their dreams very closely...others think nothing of it...some people just say dreams occur due to random neurons misfiring throughout the brain...personally, I believe this is a dream right now...every person is dual in nature; that is to say we each have 2 selves...when we are awake, the other self (the one in the dream world) is dreaming THIS reality....when we go to sleep, the other self (the one in the dream world) is wide awake and our perception is able to experience BOTH realms....you could say that THIS world is real AND the OTHER "dream world" is real too!! I've come to understand that anything a person can experience or see, whether awake or asleep, is completely solid and REAL. kinda cool.
