Do you feel that your dreams mean anything?

Not really. I usually forget them quickly anyway.

etoile, 20

Yes, I think so, but I don't know what they would mean because some dreams are just weird!

Dianne, 16

Absolutely. I just don't know what it is that some of them mean.

Fisch, 45

I feel they might. I have many occurances where I feel I have been there before or I have had this same dilimia. It is usually in a dream. I've been doing it since I was a kid. I know when I have certain dreams that something is going on inmy life that would cause such dreams. I think it's just a brain psyche thing. Your body is trying to tell you something.

Stephanie, 25

Sometimes yes. Most times any dreams I remember just seem like my brain picking up pieces here and there and smushing it into a mini story...nothing too important.

Firelady, 23

Most of the time, no. But during one particularly stressful period in my life, I dreamt regularly that I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, only to have it turn out to be a train coming at me. This was an exact reflection of what my waking life felt like.

Absolutely. I remember at least one dream almost every night. I'm usually working out issues in my dreams. Most of the time it's mundane stuff, but I do know that certain symbols mean that I'm repressing something. For sure, if I have a dream about a tornado there's a problem in my life that I'm ignoring. And the "tornado dreams" will get scarier every night until I deal with the problem.

Most definitely. I'm not sure that all dreams have deep, deep meaning, but they certainly represent the processing of some sort of information. Unfortunately, I remember very few of my dreams and up until about 5 years ago, I never remembered any dreams.

i don't know if they mean anything but i love remembering them to SEE if they have any impact on my life, or if they're really what the future will bring. i've heard if u dream in color, your dreams will come true, but i've also heard that some people always dream in color, and some people always dream in black and white...it's not something u can help. so i don't know if dreams really mean anything.

Absolutely: I dream about own death many, many times, and I certainly believe that it is my unconscious trying to talk to my conscious. I beleive that my death dreams mean I want a change from dead-end job/life. I have been shot, drowned, eaten by alligators, bitten by spiders, died by drinking, car accident, and froze to death were among the ways I croaked in my dreams.

I'm sure they do, dreams are our unconcious mind's way of speaking to us.

Talia, 23

Mine don't. They merely reflect what I have been thinking about, conciously or (more often) subconciously.

Reba, 51
, MD   USA

I do think that some dreams can be a sign of something in our lives or that may happen in the future but I don't think all dreams mean something.

Marci, 56
, OH   USA

yeah, sometimes i think that they're gonna come true or something crazy like that. sometimes something faintly related to my dream happens and i get spooked. lol

Karen2, 15

I'm sure they do, but I try to not think too deeply on it.

Jaden, 21

Sometimes I feel as if my dreams are trying to sort out a problem for the day or interpret something that happened. If there is something big on my mind it will often appear in my dreams and be thought about. At times it will eveninspire the solution to a problem if I remember a dream when I awake.

Other times my dreams seem just random. Images and sounds that need to be used up or something. There does not seem to be any reason or method to them.


I assume that my dreams are very meaningful--but I'm not always sure what the meaning might be.

Jill, 60

Generally no, because most of my dreams involve extremely surreal  things from my childhood, or me flying in some way. But sometime last March, I had a dream where I was in a car with my brother and mother and it was extremely hot and sunny with a clear blue sky. Someone parked the car, we got out, and it was so hot that I started sweating immediately. I looked around, and the whole town was deserted. Then I woke up, and I was physically sweating from the heat in my dream. I looked outside, and it had been snowing overnight. I think that one was pretty significant in a way.

Shanna, 16

In a psychiatric sense, yes. In a Nostradamus sort of way, no.

Alias Irrelevante

I believe some dreams mean something, but most of them just happen because there is nothing much happening in your sleep.

I think they give us an insight into what our mind is really thinking sometimes. Other times, it seems that its just blowing steam from the day's pressure.

Janet, 42
E. Brunswick

Not usually...I think they are just reflections upon events that are have happened or issues that have bothered me.

Angela, 16
Bella Vista

Well, yeah, but not in, like, a Freudian kind of way.

Karen, 21

Most of the time....I SURE AS HELL HOPE NOT!!!

Tracy, 24
Ocean City

Yes. I think all dreams have significance. I think dreams are your unconscious mind trying to communicate with your conscious mind.
