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 speak.
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
People who are very close to each other, like twins, mother/child,
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
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 waking
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
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 this occurs.
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 the dream?
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
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
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
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 second.
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
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.
dreams affect our feelings?
dreams affect our feelings. Certain dreams, especially if they are
frightening or disturbing can have an affect on you when you wake up. They
can nag at you throughout the day as you try to make sense of what it
means. Particularly vivid dreams can also affect your mood. Known as epic
dreams, these dreams can be very enlightening and amazing, causing you to
look at things from a different perspective. Some describe such dreams as
a life-changing experience. Conversely, if you are not allowed to dream,
then you become more short-tempered, irritable, restless and extremely
