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.

I had a dream about swimming in a big fish like tank with my son and a stingray. The stingray came along and stabbed my son from behind and killed him. I tried to get help to save my son but no one could help. What does this mean?

Alex @ Drowning
I just had a dream that I was in the car with someone and they were driving. They left the car and I had to go to the drivers seat so I could be safe. In doing that, I didn't succeed and the road ended and I crashed into a body of water(I kept calling it the ocean). I was drowning to the point where I couldn't not breath. I grabbed my phone and was about to text my family that I love them because I knew it was the end for me. When suddenly the car was lifted by a machine and I was saved. But when I went to where the people dropped me off I no one knew, or cared, that I was gone and something terrible like that happend. This dream is just something I can't get over.
