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 @ Dogs
I dreamt of dogs 3 consecutive days..they looked harmless (most of them had black fur)but they tried to block my way when I came across their way and bite me.. And i could really feel the pain in my dreams..what does it mean?

Natasha-Jade @ Dogs
I had an afternoon nap now (feeling fluish) and had an awful nightmare.
I dreamed I took my parrot for a walk (strange already)
I was walking in my apartment complex and could not find the stairwell. Before I realized I had walked into someone's apartment. They saw me, I explained I was lost and turned to leave. I saw a (Boxer?) dog approach to attack my parrot and as I turned to protect him, the dog lept up and bit into the back of my neck; I could feel the pressure of the bite and the weight of the dog's body on my back...
Any thoughts on meaning behind this? Would appreciate assistance.

Krystle @ Dead
I had a dream that I saw myself laying in a coffin and waking up surrounded by older people and gifts. Everything was white; coffin, clothes and the area. everyone seemed very happy.

Ene @ Spider
When I was very young about the age of 5, I was playing on the carpet tummy down and I looked forward to see this huge spider slowly and slightly with hesitance walking toward me. The closer it got it started to fade away. I believe this happened in real life, but it's possible it was a cry vivid dream or vision. Any clues to what this means?
