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.

Rudy @ Drowning
I had a dream that my dead brother pushed me in the pool and I was at the bottom of the pool and he had his arm around my neck and was trying to drown me. When I was younger my brother used to push me in the pool and push my head under the water

Chritian @ Death
I had a dream of my friends and I going to an airport to get on a flight to a place that was happy. After getting onto the plain, the capstan's voice was distorted but calm. We get off the ground and the plains flaps were set to 0, keeping the plain from getting higher then 100-200 feet off the ground and keeping the engine at 50% thrust. We flew by some tall buildings at around 250 miles per hour. Then I see a building in-front of the plain. I had no reaction speed. Next thing I know, I hear quick crash, and feel a warmth come over me. Seeing all but black, I try to yell I love you Mom, but all I was able to say was "I".

Melanie @ Dark
I had a really bad dream.It was dark and gloomy things kept popping out that whole night I couldn't sleep.I kept going to the my mother's room to check on her while she slept to make sure she was okay.Then returned to my room to try and sleep and here I got back to my nightmare of random dark lights and unexplainable objects. One minute it was up close in my face the next far away. Well the moral of my story is I couldn't sleep due to this dream.I felt like something was wrong.My gut was right I finally got a few hours of zzzz's and woke up got ready for school and my mother got a phone call from my Aunt tell her that my cousin is dead. Ever since I that day I've been trying to figure out what my dream was about. If anyone understands my dream and can help me understand can you please reply to this. Thank you!!

me123 @ Fish
I'm 27 and 4 months pregnant, I also have two other children and baby number three on the way and currently full time university student. last night I dreamt that me, my cousin and 2 uncles were returning back from school. for some reason we were dressed up in school uniforms too. but any ways on our back from school we stopped at a store where some people we knew tried selling us fresh live fish from a tank. What does all this mean? anyone know anything about fish dreams and family besides the pregnant presumptions. I am already pregnant so it wouldn't be about me. some explanation would be great thanks.
