    Every DREAM is connected with your own "reality".

    But it was possible for me to - fly, fight demons, shake hands with favorite personalities, identify a treasure, win shows and contests, refuse rewards and prizes etc., in my dreams.

    Everybody dreams! This is a scientifically proven fact. Research has shown that all human beings in a study showed brain activity during their sleep. Just because you cannot remember your dreams does not mean that you do not dream.

    It provides you with insight into ourselves and a means for self-exploration. In understanding your dreams, you will have a better understanding and discovery of your true self.

    During the day, we may hold back our feelings and repress our anger. Thus dreams serve as a safe outlet for us to release our negative emotions. Another theory says that dreams is a biologically necessary aspect of sleep.

    The average person has about 3 to 5 dreams per night, but some may have up to 7 dreams in one night. The dreams tend to last longer as the night progresses. During a full 8-hour night sleep, two hours of it is spent dreaming. The trick is remembering all your dreams. Some people have trouble remembering one single dream,

    A person moves through the four stages of the sleep cycle throughout the night. In the final stage of the sleep cycle (referred to as REM sleep) is where dreaming occurs. Each cycle of sleep lasts anywhere from 60-90 minutes and then will repeat itself throughout the night.

    So why is it that some people don't remember their dream? This may be attributed to alcohol consumption, certain antibiotics, fever, lack of sleep, high levels of stress, and/or unconscious fears about the content of your dreams. Some researchers believe that certain people have a genetic disposition to forget their dreams as they come out of their sleep.

    The dreams of young children (3-5 year olds) usually have no real story line or any strong emotional content. Children around this age also frequently experience nightmares relating to their fears (strangers, monsters, loud noises, etc.) By the time children reaches their teen years, their dream patterns are matched closer to that of adults.

    Dreams that recur (or repeat themselves) is a clear indication that some issue is not being confronted or that it has not yet been resolved.

    There is no difference between male and female dream patterns. Studies have shown that men tend to dream more about men, while women dream about both men and women equally.

    For a man to dream about a woman, indicates that he is acknowledging some feminine aspect of his own self, which is difficult for men to admit that they have a soften feminine side to begin with.

    Nnightmares - They are vivid, frightening, and often jolt you awake. Whenever you are awakened in the REM stage of sleep, you are much more likely to recall the events of your nightmare. Secondly, nightmares tend to occur in the early morning hours, when you are about to wake up.

    Finally, what are we upto here in this topic?

    Let me throw a open discussion.

    Firstly, do we realize our dreams and explore ourselves?

    Secondly, have anyone of your dreams came true in reality?

    There is no scientific proof that dreams can predict and foretell the future. Yet, many people have had dreams that eventually came true afterwards. In short, you unconsciously already know what was going to happen and it only appears as if the dream had predicted the future. Another explanation is that such dreams are mere coincidences or is the faulty memory of the dreamer.

    The theory of déjà vu (a movie too)dealing with dreams indicates that the feeling of having previously seen or experienced something could be attributed to having dreamt about a similar situation or place, and forgetting about it until one seems to be mysteriously reminded of the situation or place while awake.

    Share your dreams of exploration.

    Dear Vanaja,

    a wonderful post. sometimes i remember dreams, if i have waken up immediately say for example to go to the loo in a hurry, or many times i remember something pleasant dream, but cant remember it.

    And most of the times i have a wierd dream, that i am not properly clothed, and am hiding from people for they will see me without a stitch, andi cannot understand why it occurs again and again.

    Dreams are very fascinating. BUt we dont know why they appear. They say it is brain's way of organising all the inputs it got from senses and all. Some people say their dreams came true. I don't understand how that is possible. VEry strange.
