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.

Bela @ Mushroom
I had a dream last night that I was with my family in a strange place, I didn't recognize it, and we were test subjects. We all had to test how the hats effected us, and mine made me grow small mushrooms out of the head. I pulled them out and they left tiny holes in my head. I could almost actually feel the mushrooms too. I am very disgusted.

Zoe @ Cancer
I dreamt that i had been diagnosed with Cancer to the mouth with one main tumour and two smaller metastasis. I had to give up my life abroad and move back home where i was living completly alone in a small flat. I had no friends and all the people i knew wouldn't tell me how bad the cancer was. I remember feeling lonely and scared.

paul @ Father
I dreamt that we visited my father in law in hospital he had just passed .it looked as though he had badly beaten but he passed from cancer, when I entered the room he got up his toe nails were weirdly painted in different colours.he produced his wallet and said lets get out off here I cant remember any more but would like to know what it may mean.

Emma @ Kiss
I was talking to a crowd of boys that me and my friends know and I noticed that 1 of them (who I dont fancy) kept staring at me! Next thing I know he starts walking towards me and I walk backwards he walks faster and all I can see is him now and we are now inside this room! He keeps walking towards me and I keep walking backwards while staring in his eyes! All of a sudden I trip on something and fall backwards! I fall on a big beanbag thing that is about the size of a mattress and I'm lying there and he's staring at me and then he kneels on the mattress/beanbag over me and just looks at me and I look at him lovingly and now (in the dream) I really like him! He stares at me and I say even before I fall on the beanbag that he is too close but when he is on top of me he asks is he too close now? I don't answer and then he is moving towards my face while we r staring at each other and he leans in but doesn't kiss me as if it's because he wants me to kiss him but we basically just hold each other's hands and lie on top of me! Then we turn around and then I'm on top of him. I'm sitting on him and holding his hands wile he's lying down and this whole time we r both staring at each other! We just keep doing this and I try to sit up and I realise I am now wearing a dress! I try to sit up but he gently pulls me back down and tells me he loves me with his eyes then we lie and hold each other's hand and look up!! I surprisingly really enjoyed it (in and out of the dream) and in the dream he seams really happy too even though we didn't actually kiss, we just lie on each other and hold hands and look into each other's eyes as if he loves me and I love him! I would really like to know what this dream means? Can u help me please?!

jac @ Mushroom
Constant dreams of tiny mushrooms growing out of my back..tons of them very close together. I knock them off by scraping my back against a wall covered by sandpaper or sticks..they grow back multiplied. This is a true nightmare that i think about even during daylight hours.
