dreaming, I can be having a conversation and I know what is coming next or what
is going to happen. What does it all mean?
is no real answer to your question about the deja vu dreams that you have been
having. These dreams fall into the category of precognitive dreams. It seems to
be an unexplainable phenomenon which occurs more often in women than in men. In
a poll in the U.S., about 65% of the population have experienced deja vu. Some
scientists think that there is a lag time in our perception of things and what
we think of as deja vu is really our mind catching up with ourselves, so to
dreams have no sounds. Is this normal. Like even when I talk to other people I
never like hear it. like telepathic. And people never move their mouth when
talking. That's weird.
way people dream are unique to each individual. Some people dream in color and
some people dream in black and white. Some people frequently have lucid dreams
and other have never experienced a lucid dream. (Lucid dreams occur when you
realize that you are dreaming). And it has also been reported that some people
have dreams very similar to as they were watching a silent movie, which seems to
be your case. There is nothing abnormal about it. One explanation for your
telepathic abilities in your dream is that all your dream images and conjured
from your own mind. What happens in your dream, who is in your dream, and what
is said are all coming from your own mind. You are like the movie director and
you hold the script to your dreams.
does it mean when you and someone else have the same dream, on the same night,
in the same exact location in the dream?
telepathy occurs when you and someone else have the same dream on the same night
These dreams fall under the category of paranormal dreams. There is no definite
reason as to why this occurs but researchers have offered some explanations.
People who are very close to each other, like twins, mother/child, husband/wife,
etc., are usually the ones that report having shared dreams. The details and
content of the dream itself and its meaning is an indication of how attuned and
bonded they are to one another. But HOW on earth did the same exact scenario
appears in the dreams of two different people still remains a mystery. One
explanation is that they are experiencing the same things during their waking
hours. Thus these shared elements are incorporated in both their dreams.
my dream, I can only smell and feel this person, but I cannot see them. What
does that mean?
and touch are part of our five senses. Often times, people only remember the
visual and auditory aspects of their dreams. Since your particular dream
seems to stimulate your senses of smell and touch, then it represents a
sensual experience. It reflects your need for sensual gratification and physical
contact. Consider how you feel about this person.
dreams are about things that I have thought about that day, but didn't really
give much thought to. I can wake up in the morning and realize that I did think
about it the day before but only for a short time. Does this happen to everyone?
most people, dreams serve as an outlet to express their feelings and attitudes
which they have suppressed during the course of a day. Your day is filled with
problems, responsibilities, and errands that you may not have time to stop and
cater to every feeling/thought that comes across your mind. Thus these fleeting
thoughts may become suppressed or put in the back of your mind. It is during
sleep and in your dreams, that these thoughts my creep back up to your conscious
mind and fully express themselves. It is a healthy thing and allows your mind to
decompress and acknowledge feelings which you may not have time to during your
To some, the parallel between how they felt during the previous day and what
occurred in their dreams is obvious. For others, the correlation may be somewhat
obscure since the dream language is often cryptic and they are not able to make
a connection to the events of their waking life. Nonetheless, this happens to
most people whether they are aware of it or not.
does it mean when you are watching yourself in your dream, as if you were out of
your own body watching the dream happen to you? Thanks!
experience you have just described where you are watching yourself in your own
dream is often referred to as "out-of-body-experiences" or OBE for
short. Sometimes, it is called "astral projection"
People who have undergone OBE were usually under the influence of anesthetics or
some medication. However, this phenomenon can also occur in ordinary, everyday
circumstances. There is still no acceptable scientific explanation as to why
As a metaphorical meaning, this dream may highlight your helplessness in a
particular situation. You described how you are just watching the dream happen
to you. This indicates a lack of control. It could also be a reflection of
your real life and how you are just watching life pass you by, instead of
participating in it. Such dreams could mean that you need to take more of
an initiative on things.
was just wondering if all dreams mean something . I read in Gustavus Hindman
Millers book of 10,000 Dreams Interpreted that to dream of stealing
fortold bad luck and loss of character. Your interpretation means
something totally different. Which one should I be worried about?
Hindman Millers' interpretations are based on traditional and mythological
meanings, while Dream Moods is based more on modern day psychology. It is not my
position to tell you which one you should believe. Dreams are personal in
meaning and it is always up to the individual themselves to either accept or
reject a meaning that we have put out.
heard somewhere that if you sleep on the right hand side of the bed, you're more
likely to remember your dreams.
have never heard that sleeping on your right hand side of the bed would help you
better remember your dreams. There has been no evidence supporting this.
However, believing and telling yourself that you will remember your dreams when
you wake up is a tool that can be utilized to help remember your dreams. Thus if
you believe that you will remember your dreams, then you most likely will.
Most of the time when I'm not that tired, I always think of things before I fall
asleep. But sometimes when a certain moment pops out in my head, I'm not sure if
it was a dream or if it was just one of my thoughts. Does that happen or does it
even makes sense?
you may be experiencing is a level of daydreaming which occurs in your
semi-awake state. Daydreams consist of spontaneous thoughts. You kind of let
your imagination run away from you. You mentioned how you sometimes start to
think about things before you fall asleep. These thoughts may sometimes start to
take a course of its own and you let your thoughts wander. In doing so, you may
start to think and question yourself. Did I just think that?
was so surprised to stumble upon the same type dreams I have had on your
website. I've had the same dream for years that I find a loose tooth in my mouth
and one leads to another. Before long my mouth is full of teeth just falling
out and I am trying to hide it from others...sounds stupid, but it is very
may reassure you to know that you are not the only out there
could there possibly be a meaning with lucid dreams when you are in control of
is great meaning in lucid dreams. Although you are in control of these dreams,
your mind is able to readily access the depths of your unconscious thoughts.
During lucidity, your guard is let down. It is a great opportunity for you to
safely confront your deepest fears. In fact, some use lucid dreaming as a way to
cope with a phobia or to improve on their golf stroke. Lucid dreaming allows you
to ask question in the dream and how the dream relates to your waking life. So
don't dismiss the significance of your lucid dreams.
most of us sleep while one day turns into the next, what day does the night
belong to? If I have a dream at 11pm tonight, yes, I'll assume it's a Tuesday
dream. However, the dream I'll wake up to at 2:30am tomorrow, does it belong to
Tuesday night or Wednesday morning?
dreams most likely directly or indirectly reflect the events and thoughts of the
previous day. Thus the dreams you have at 2:30am would more accurately fall into
a Tuesday dream even thought technically it occurs on a Wednesday.
would like to know more about people who talk during their sleep . Could you
give me information or tell me where I could find these information?
talking is actually not an abnormal phenomenon. A majority of people have
actually spoken in their sleep and are just not aware of it. Studies have shown
that people who are under a lot of stress experience somniloquy, the scientific
term for sleep talking. People with neurosis have a high frequency of talking in
their sleep. Sleep talking can vary from single-word utterances to extended
narratives or conversations.
you have info on the Dream People of Malaysia called the Senoi?
Senoi have been well known for their dream control techniques and their dream
theory. They believe that dreams can foretell future events and that when they
are asleep, they are able to leave the body and communicate with the
supernatural world. When it comes to dreaming, they also believed that the
center of the forehead (referred to as Ruuway) plays a significant role. It is
also referred to as the "dream-soul".
the last ten years, I keep having dreams about my ex-boyfriend. What does that
is not at all unusual to dream of a past love. Your old ex represents a freer,
less encumbered relationship where you had less responsibilities. The old
boyfriend is symbolic of the positive qualities you experienced during that
relationship - excitement, freedom, and youth.
Since you have been having these dreams for over the past ten years, there may
very be some unresolved issues in that previous relationship. Perhaps you have
left some things unsaid which you wished you had said then.
you remember your dreams often vividly, what does that mean?
your dream in vivid details could mean one of three things. One is a way for
your unconscious to get your attention. In recalling the dreams so vividly, your
mind is forcing you to pay attention to the details and start to ask yourself
questions about the dream. Another significance of vivid dreams could indicate
repressed thoughts from your childhood. These are thoughts that you have
not confronted and these true-life images are appearing in your dreams. Thirdly,
vivid dreams could also mean a past life. Some people do not believe in
this notion. I have listed it here and you can decide for yourself.
do you all think about specific dog breeds? I don't have a dog so a specific dog
doesn't seem significant to me.
believe that a specific dog breed do carry an extra significance. For example,
bloodhounds may symbolize your intuition and your ability to "nose
out" matters, while a German Shepherd, represents you need to be more on
guard and alert.
However, generally to see dogs in your dream, indicates loyalty and standing up
to your own values/beliefs. Of course, for those who have a deathly fear of
dogs, their appearance in dreams have a completely different meaning. In this
case, the dogs not only represent fear, but also primitive instincts and
dangerous emotions that are about to emerge.
if you are the one chasing some one else? Then what does that mean?
you are the one doing the chasing in your dream, then it indicates a solution to
a waking issue. Consider what you are chasing and how it may relate to a
goal you have in your waking life.
it true that early morning dreams usually turn out to be true?
it is not true that early morning dreams usually turn out to be true. You may
have dreams early in the morning just as you are about to wake up. And as you
are waking up, you may be thinking ahead to what the day has in store for you or
even what you will wear or what you will eat for breakfast. These random
thoughts may incorporate themselves into your dream. Thus these early morning
dreams may seemingly foretell your future.
heard that sugar late at night (such as a big bowl of ice cream before bed) is
guaranteed to bring on nightmares. Is this true?
was been research supporting the correlation of high sugar intake right before
going to sleep and having nightmares. Others myths say that it is eating spicy
food late at night that will bring on the nightmares. This is however not true.
you dream about a wedding, does it mean someone could die? How are the dreams
about weddings and death related?
to Indian tradition and other folklore, dreaming about a wedding does point to
death or severe pain. Various cultures still believe this today. However,
psychologists today tend to put more weight on the psychological significance of
wedding dreams. The dreamer may be longing for a permanent relationship,
security, and home/family life.
Weddings are often related to death in that both refers to some sort of
transformation. In dreams, death does not necessarily mean death of the physical
body, but can also mean death of an old habit or death of an old relationship.
This symbolic death brings about change and new beginnings. Similarly, weddings
are seen as a turning point in one's life with new beginnings.
always have dreams that take place in the dark--never in the daylight. Is this a
common way to dream? What does it mean?
that take place in the dark is an indication that you are exploring your
unconscious. Perhaps you are completely repressing things into your unconscious
instead of acknowledging them when you are awake. The darkness serves as a form
of protection or shield that prevents you from fully seeing the things that you
have been repressing and may find difficult to deal with. You are afraid to face
your own emotions, secrets and thoughts.
Your dreams of being in the dark may also suggests that you do not know where
you are headed in life. You are still trying to discover what kind of goals you
want to sent and what you want to get out of life.
is the most common dream that people have?
on the emails Dream Moods receive and what we have read, dreams about teeth
falling or rotting is by far the most common. Dreams about being chased come in
it possible to force what you dream about before you fall asleep? I mean, like
repeat what you want to dream about, like making it stick in your head?
is definitely very possible to "force" a dream. In fact, the technique
you described is called "dream incubation." As you are falling asleep,
you fixate on a specific scenario or you continually repeat a problem that want
answered in your dream.
