Dreams Explained online


"Dreams are rudiments of the great state to come. We dream what is about to happen."

Welcome to Dreams Explained


Dreams are the images, thoughts and feelings experienced while sleeping. Dreams can sometimes provide insight into our deepest thoughts.
The contents and biological purposes of dreams are not fully understood, though they have been a topic of speculation and interest throughout recorded history.
There is no universally agreed biological definition of dreaming. General observation shows that dreams are strongly associated with rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, during which an electroencephalogram shows brain activity to be most like wakefulness.

When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.

Megan @ Dead
On July 25 was my grandpa birthday... he died March 2014... I never go to the house anymore because it is not the same... well the day before his birthday I stopped but stayed outside because I could not go in. I stopped on his birthday and I could not get out of my car, it was like something was telling me not to go in. Well ever since then I have been seeing him in my dreams, but he is not talking to me. And I feel that when I wake up it is like he is right there beside me but I turn on the light and no one is there. I am not sure what this means... I have talk to no one about this, even my husband. I cant keep shutting people out but it is worrying me of why this is happening. why cant my grandpa just talk to me and tell me why he is here. any thoughts on this are appreciated :)

Liz @ Spider
I had a dream, involving a spiders web being attached just bellow my chest. Even when I tired to break the web it kept appearing again in the same position, but I could not see what it was attached to on the other end.

speeqtruth @ Dead
I had a dream, I was waking my step father from his sleep, telling him "papa it's time to get up, it's time to go to work" I said that three times, he turn over and seemed to be wakening. In the dream we actually be an to reach or hand out as if I were to pull him out. My step father died of cancer last year. He molested me when I was a boy. I did not go to his funeral.

Chris Johnson @ Drowning
I had a dream I was in Antarctica on a class field trip and a big orca busted through the ice and grabbed my teacher. I dove in and saved her but then the whale grabbed me, I started to drown, but somehow I saved myself and fought my way to the surface and then I woke up gasping for air and not able to breathe. What does this mean.

Nefretery Nancy Mari @ Owl
I dreamt that I was talking to an Owl.. It followed me into my patio , it had an orange strip on it's right wing.. The Owl flew into my face..so close that I could see into its soul.. It then spoke to me and said: "Life is starting a new. look into my eye and see"

I then woke from my dream.

Please tell me what this means?

Mom @ Dogs
Our family pet died suddenly and now I see him in my dreams next to my bed... why?

Lisa @ Grave
I often dream of my late husband, sometimes I see him, sometimes his presence is just there. Last night I dreamed that I went to the cemetery & dug up his ashes. I actually placed them in the ground when he was buried & in my dream I went exactly to that spot. I was digging him up to bring him back to life.
I ended up somewhere else with a lot of people right after the cemetery. I could hear him talking in the other room, but I couldn't see him.
Can't quite figure this one out. With as many dreams as I have had about him, I have never dug up his grave & seen everything I buried with him. This was so vivid.....
Makes me wan to go to the Cemetery, but I now live 1000 miles away..... sigh
