Do dreams tell you something
4 Things That Our Dreams Tell Us about Ourselves
Scientists and psychologists, old and new, tell us that dreams reveal critical aspects about ourselves. Dreams are a reflection of your recent state of mind, future possibilities, and changes that you have experienced.

So when you dream about something inane, such as a candle burning inside the freezer, or a cow taking you hostage inside the barn, which is actually the grocery store, you may be able to learn something about yourself. While there are different theories about interpreting dreams, we'd like to share some general insights that may help you unravel your nighttime wanderings.
1. Dreams Provide Information About Your Health
Dreams come from your subconscious, and oftentimes your subconscious knows more about the inner workings of your body than you do. That's why you should pay close attention to your dream. Is there some part of your dream that is giving you difficulties? Maybe you're trying to turn your laptop on, and you just can't make it work. Or you are cooking in the kitchen, but the stove doesn't heat no matter which knobs you turn.
These could be indications that something about your health is out of control. Your mind is trying to tell you something inside you isn't working correctly.
There's another way to look at this. If you are having terrifying nightmares that are disrupting your sleep, you could have a health problem. In particular, you could have a mental health problem, such as anxiety, depression, or PTSD.
2. Dreams Can Show Our Predictions to Future Situations
Have you ever had a dream that seems to be telling the future? It may actually be your subconscious predicting an outcome of something you know is going to happen.
For instance, if you dream about living in a big house next to a lake, your mind could have leaped to a hopeful conclusion that your new job leads to success and a new future home.
Sometimes something happens to you, and then you recall a dream that you think predicted that incident. In those cases, it could be that you are remembering only one aspect of the dream that fits reality. There may be other aspects of the dream that didn't come true at all. Is it a future-telling dream, or is it a coincidence? We'll let you decide.
3. Dreams Inform You About Your Mindset
One of the most striking aspects of dreams can be the unusual setting. Remember the cow in the barn, except the barn was actually the supermarket? That type of changing setting may be an indication of not where you are but rather what you are thinking. If you dream about your workplace, it could mean your brain is always thinking about work. If you dream of a school, you could be thinking about something in life that you need to learn. If your dream takes place in your childhood home, it could be an indication that you are holding onto a way of thinking that is entrenched deeply into your past. The supermarket example could be an indication that you are often hungry.
4. Vivid Dreams and Stress
If you are having dreams that are more vivid than usual, it could be stress-related. Heightened stress floods the brain with adrenaline and other neurotransmitters. These can remain activated during your sleep, which can create vivid dreams. You are not sleeping normally because stress negatively impacts the ability to fall asleep. Your brain, and its dreams, are keeping you alert, so you can be prepared for whatever it is that is causing you stress.

Dreams Don't Come True, They Are True
Some years ago, a Johns Hopkins University study found that pregnant women who had an intuition about the sex of their baby were correct 70% of the time—but women who had a dream about the sex of their baby were correct 100% of the time!
We have access to very deep knowledge in there, and we’re sleeping through it most of the time.
Dreams never lie
Dreams tell you what you really know about something, what you really feel. They point you toward what you need for growth, integration, expression, and the health of your relationships to person, place, and thing. They can help you fine-tune your direction and show you your unfinished business. They’re meaning machines. And they never lie. Author Tom Robbins once said that dreams don’t come true; they are true. When we talk about our dreams coming true, we’re talking about our ambitions.
Dreaming is ultimately about awakening. The unconscious, from which dreams bubble up, seems to contain an image of the way you’re supposed to be, and continually works toward the expression of this potential, day and night. It often knows things about which you’re otherwise in the dark, things which in the broad daylight of consciousness remain invisible, just as the stars play to an empty house during the day when the sun is shining. Some things can only be seen when it’s dark. Trying to solve your problems or make your way or get a grip on your priorities without the information that dreams provide is like being a judge with only half the facts of a case.
To ignore dreams is to tear out pages from your own unfolding story, which winds right on through the night shift, and cut yourself off from that place from which passions and callings emanate. Most spiritual traditions clearly regard dreams as revelations from the gods and goddesses and consider the act of separating the waking life from the dreaming, the conscious from the unconscious, as not unlike separating a plant from its roots.
Dreaming is metaphoric communication
The Jungian author James Hillman has written, “When I ask, ‘Where is my soul, how do I meet it, what does it want now?’ the answer is, turn to your images.’” By which he primarily means dreams and art, since both speak a visual language. So if you want a homing beacon to help you know your soul and navigate your life, you can't do much better than turning to your dreams.
For one thing, they're masterpieces of metaphoric communication:
- You’re trying to decide between following passion or security, and dream of throwing a rock through the window of a bank, and then burying your briefcase in the backyard.
- You’re following a call toward a very public life, and don’t realize your true feelings about sacrificing privacy until an anxiety dream shows the island you live on being towed toward the mainland.
- Someone with whom you’re considering teaming up appears in a dream wearing costume jewelry and fake leather shoes.
- You’re postponing an important decision, and dream of “missing the boat.”
- You’re unsure whether you have the ability to handle what seems like an impossible task but then have a flying dream.
- In the weeks prior to losing a job early in my journalism career, one I was hanging onto primarily for security and status, my dreams were splitting at the seams with portents of how I really felt about trading off integrity for comfort and a dollop of renown. And though I faithfully recorded them in my dream journal, I did absolutely nothing about interpreting them. At some level, I didn't want to know what they had to tell me. Which is another way of saying I knew what they had to tell me.
- In one dream, I was handed a stack of hundred-dollar bills and later discovered that I’d been cheated: Only the top bill was a one-hundred; the rest were ones. In another, I lost my wallet with all my identification cards in it. In another, I found a golden calf, deformed and chained to the ground. In yet another, I was invited to the boss’ estate for an extravagant pool party, but the pool was empty.
This is not exactly rocket science. The meaning of these dreams couldn’t have been more obvious if it was tattooed across the bridge of my nose. I was being invited to take a good look at what I was doing at that job, how I felt about being there, and because I didn’t want to look, the sudden loss of the job—the official reason, appropriately, was that “there isn’t a fit”—came as a complete shock to me when it shouldn’t have.
Dreamwork and avoidance
Contrary to the rationalist hooey that dreams aren’t real (“You’re just dreaming”), dreams are very much real. They convey real information, real impact, real emotions, and have real consequences if ignored. If you don’t honor your dreams, you’ll at the least dream them until you do, or the unconscious will “dream up” other channels for their messages to come through, such as symptoms, neuroses, and compulsions. As with anything you avoid, the more you ignore dreams, the more insistent they become.
A tribe in Malaysia called the Senoi puts great stock in their dreams and gathers each morning to share them. When they dream of being chased, they assume that whatever is chasing them is an ally rather than enemy, and so turn and face their pursuer to inquire what the chase is all about, what the message might be that the pursuer bears.
This is the heart of dreamwork, of revealing the nature of the calls whose fins break the surface in your dreams, of deciphering the messages they bring. The challenge lies in turning around and facing whatever is there, rather than running from it. The fact is, there’s gold in them thar hills, but it takes some nerve to study your dreams, the same nerve it takes to examine a firecracker that didn’t go off.
This certainly helps explain why dream recall is such a slippery affair. A part of us doesn’t want to remember them, because of the messages they bear, the things they reveal, the directions they point us. The truth may set you free, but there’s an even chance that first, it will scare the daylights out of you.
As for the dream material itself, some of it is like junk mail, only a small percentage being truly useful and worth slogging through. Some of it also comes in such a crazy mambo of images, vignettes, metaphors, and other psychic ephemera, that trying to make any sense of it is like running down the street trying to grab the loose papers of a manuscript the wind has snatched out of your hands.
But don’t necessarily run with the first interpretation that comes to you. Brainstorm all associations you can conjure about the dream images or events, especially the most potent one in the dream. What words, ideas, people, memories and feelings does it remind you of? Then go with the one that elicits the most energy from you, that has the most oomph.
Avoid a dream-dictionary, this-means-that approach to interpretation. Dreams are far too subjective for that. Water, for instance, will mean something very different to someone who almost drowned as a kid than to someone who feels more at home in water than the fishes.
Since most dreams (though not all) seem to relate to something happening in present time, ask what, if anything, the dream ties into in your life right now. Where have you seen this particular scenario playing itself out lately? What is it trying to tell you? What is its central message? If you dream of flying, falling, conquering foes, being unable to find something, having extraordinary powers, being chased, ask how these may be symbolic of aspects of your life. But check the physical world first, before settling on an interpretation. If you dream your car loses its brakes, check your brakes. If nothing shows up, check where in your life you perhaps feel unable to stop, out of control.
Dreams and your attention
It isn’t even necessary, though, to understand dreams or mine them for meaning, writes Thomas Moore in Care of the Soul. Merely giving your attention to them, granting them their autonomy and mystery, goes a long way toward opening the portals and shifting from analysis to responsiveness. In fact, what largely determines whether you recall dreams at all is simply the amount of interest you pay them.
Not only do dreams respond to attention, but they also respond to direct requests. In other words, you don’t have to wait around for them to appear. You can draw them to you by petition. You can bargain with them. If you get in the habit of asking for dream guidance as you’re dropping off to sleep, dreams will fairly beat a path to your door. Just be prepared to take dictation: keep a pad and pen by the bedside, or a tape recorder. Promise yourself that if you're sent a dream, you’ll write it down upon waking, even if that’s at 3 a.m. Prompt them with specific questions. Ask for directions. Ask for clues. Ask what your next step should be. Ask for clarification of last night’s dream.
Just get to your dreams before the world does. Write them down before you even get out of bed, because the moment your feet hit the floor, you literally ground yourself, and the lightning energy of dreams disappears into the earth.
Finally, consider conducting a ritual to help concretize a dream, bringing it out of dream-state and into waking life, from the abstract down into your muscles, emotions, and physical life. A ritual is an enactment of the dream message, of whatever change the dream is calling for. It’s a way of taking a small step in that direction, making an outward sign of an inward intention. It’s a little rite of passage.
There’s an old tradition in the Christian Church that one hadn’t prayed unless one’s lips had moved. It expresses the psychological truth that something physical has to happen to establish that you mean business, that your devotion to growth is real and not merely a high opinion you have of yourself.
If you dream of the necessity of choosing passion over security, for instance, you might ritually burn a one-dollar bill, while entreating the gods of courage. If a dream points to the need to make a break with tradition, take a stick of wood and break it in two. If your dream shows you flying over obstacles, set up a series of rocks in the backyard, give them the names of your obstacles, and make broad jumps over them.
A ritual can be as simple, too, as putting a flower in a vase, making a circle of stones, burying something that represents an old habit, kneeling down in prayer, washing yourself in the river, anointing yourself with oil, visiting the zoo to spend some time with the animal in your dream, planting something, drumming or singing, feasting or fasting, making a mask, lighting a candle.
“I can light a candle because I need the light,” says writer Christina Baldwin, “or because the candle represents the light I need.”

MOSCOW, October 8 - RIA Novosti. Perhaps there is not a single person who has not looked into the dream book at least once in order to understand what this or that dream was about.

Prophetic, colorful, nightmarish… Humanity characterizes its dreams with these and other adjectives. Why do we forget dreams that seem important or interesting to us, while others, trifling, we remember in detail?
When our physical body sleeps, our subconscious continues to work, explained psychologist Daria Neledinskaya. Thus, a dream is a kind of signal, sign or clue.
"Through dreams, our subconscious speaks to us. For each person, this information is absolutely individual. If you had a dream, after which an unpleasant sensation arises, I recommend listening to yourself. Turn to yourself and try to decipher what it means personally for you," the psychologist told radio Sputnik. nine0003

Scientists have discovered why dreams are forgotten
when and on what days they dream
The father of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud said: “The more strange a dream seems to us, the deeper meaning it carries.” It is not for nothing that we used to call night visions with subtext prophetic dreams. They, like an internal oracle, not only suggest what is wrong, but also indicate where to run. Human consciousness is critical: sometimes it devalues events that are important for his internal development, forcing him to perceive them as something insignificant. nine0003
Haven't called your parents in a while? Nothing, then, - calms the mind. Didn't talk heart to heart with the children? Time is like that. But the psyche can not be deceived - recognizing an obstacle that creates problems for the inner "I", it sends us signals in a dream when consciousness loses its vigilance. She pushes the "owner" to concentrate on something, to rethink, hints at the correct outcome. After all, prophetic means predictive.
But a person cannot always distinguish when he has prophetic dreams, and when the brain simply draws meaningless pictures. Experts say it is possible to learn to recognize dreams with meaning and understand why they dream. You can even calculate when the "dream prophecy" will come true. nine0003
- It depends on what phase the dream was in, - explains numerologist and esoteric Anton Ushmanov . - It is conditionally possible to divide a dream into 3 intervals - the beginning, the middle and the end. If a prophetic dream had a dream in the first phase, then it will come true within a year. If in the second, in the middle of the night, then - within 6 months. If in the third, closer to the morning - for a month. If you saw a prophetic dream just before dawn, it will come true within 12 days. And if, before sunset - during the day. nine0003
In addition, it is useful to know on which days of the week prophetic dreams occur.
What is a prophetic dream
Prophetic dreams are usually viewed from two positions - scientific and esoteric. From the point of view of science, sleep as such is the result of the work of the brain, which, as you know, never sleeps. Throughout its life, the human supercomputer has been busy modeling reality based on experience gleaned through receptors, hearing, smell, sight. The human brain processes a million signals per second. But while we are awake, we cannot realize the results of this “revision” - consciousness interferes. nine0003
— At night, when our rational part is resting, the brain calmly processes all the information during the day through the subconscious mind, — explains the process of psychologist Lyubov Ozhmegova . - And we see the images that the subconscious shows.
Just with their help, according to psychiatrist, psychotherapist, dream specialist, author of the first scientific Internet dream book in Runet Yaroslav Filatov , the brain helps a person understand how this or that situation will develop. In fact, the models that the brain builds are the very prophetic dreams. nine0003 Dreams are nothing more than information processing. Photo: pixabay.com
“Some people say that the brain predicts in a dream,” says Filatov. - But it would be more correct to say - it models: the state of objects, the reactions of people. Brain models are built constantly, and in a dream they appear to us.
Esotericists and followers of spiritual practices associate the phenomenon of prophetic dreams with reading information from space.
“It happens unconsciously,” shares his thoughts energy therapist, author of the life reconstruction method Alena Arkina , - Possible scenarios in real life are read.
— The most important thing in prophetic dreams is that, having seen them, a person can draw conclusions, realize the reasons for what is happening to him, get answers to questions, — summarizes the psychologist-hypnologist Alexandria Sadofyeva.
Why prophetic dreams occur
Mystic Denis Banchenko is sure that prophetic dreams occur for three reasons. First, when a person was too close to an important event. Secondly, when the "genius of the earth" directly pushes him to pay attention to this or that situation. And thirdly, when consciousness reaches such a level of development that it itself conducts an information signal from the outside. nine0003
- A person can capture the vibrations of space in the form of a beam of information (a future event), - explains energy therapist Alena Arkina . - In parallel, there is an infinite number of options for the development of events. And a person catches one of them in a dream.
This happens when the brain and subconscious are trying to show the most probable scenarios for the future. But why does our supercomputer and inner self need this? Why should they show us where to go and where to spread the straw? nine0003
“The brain is busy helping us to survive every minute,” psychiatrist Yaroslav Filatov reminds . If nothing bad happens, it doesn't mean that there are no dangers. And the task of the psyche is to reveal our capabilities and abilities that will help in development. From the fulfillment of these tasks, prophetic dreams are born.
In other words, in order for a person to “receive a hat” less during wakefulness, the psyche tries to get through to him at night.
- Dreams are dreamed by all living beings who have a soul - assures esoteric Anton Ushmanov . - At night, we get the opportunity to live through some of the negative scenarios, "digest" them in a dream in order to avoid or learn how to cope live.
On what days prophetic dreams come true
It is believed that empty dreams are dreamed on the first day of the week. There can be many emotions and experiences in them, but not very prophecies. But if the dream that occurred on Monday is vivid and memorable, you can try to decipher it. Perhaps he will suggest a solution to some minor life task, but you should not look for a deep decisive meaning in it. nine0207
Dreams on Tuesday may come true. And, quite quickly - within two weeks. If the Tuesday dream is with a plus sign, it is better to make every effort to make it come true. And if with a minus sign, on the contrary, it makes sense to try to make sure that the dream does not come true. In fact, Tuesday is the day of choice, when you have to decide whether you want the dream to turn into reality or not. The consequences of inaction can be very unpleasant. nine0003
On Wednesdays, as esotericists say, there is not much trust in dreams. They are mostly empty. You don't have to trust them too much. In dreams that occurred on Wednesday, as a rule, there are no prophecies, but there are “bells” regarding your character and personal qualities. They can be a revelation. Try to figure out what the psyche signals: this will help to work on yourself.If the dream you had on Monday is vivid and memorable, you can try to decipher it. Photo: pixabay.com
"Dreams from Thursday to Friday are prophetic" - this is how people think. And experts say it's true: Thursday's visions openly hint at the future and indicate how this or that situation will develop. Prophetic dreams that appeared on Thursday will come true within three years. Often on Thursdays, romantic, fabulous visions come. But in fact, they are far from romance as such. She is just a symbol. Even in such dreams, you need to look for important life prophecies. nine0207
Friday dreams are usually very ordinary. Deciphering them is just a waste of time. But if you dream of a romantic plot on Friday, it directly hints at a relationship with your soulmate. A bad dream "about love" does not bode well in reality. So be vigilant and take action.
Saturday sleep should be analyzed more closely. It may come true before noon. In addition, esotericists say that a dream that occurred on Saturday can predict not only your future: you can see in it what awaits your loved ones. I often have nightmares on Saturdays. They do not need to be afraid, but worth taking into account. nine0207
Sunday sleep can be "ordered". If you concentrate well and formulate a desire (or question), you may dream of exactly the situation that worries you the most. Sunday dreams are often prophetic and come true quickly. Often on Sundays, good prophetic dreams are dreamed, predicting prosperity.
Popular questions and answers
What do you need to know about prophetic dreams in order to learn how to understand them? Here is what experts answer the most common questions about prophetic dreams. nine0003
Who has prophetic dreams?
According to psychiatrist Yaroslav Filatov, the most likely to see prophetic dreams are introverts — people who are closed and reasonable. They know how to delve into themselves, look at the little things and draw conclusions. In other words, prophetic dreams are for people who are sensitive to themselves, the signals of their body and to others.
“And prophetic dreams are often dreamed of by those who trust their intuition,” adds psychologist-hypnologist Alexandria Sadofyeva . — And for those who are going through a difficult situation, whose internal resources are focused on solving a vital task.
People of science are convinced that in order to see a prophetic dream, no special abilities are needed. At the same time, esotericists assure: a predisposition to extrasensory perception increases the chances of getting more prophetic dreams.
- The date of birth also plays a role, - says esoteric Anton Ushmanov . - People born on the 2nd, 9th, 15th, 18th, 20th of any month, as well as those born in February, September and October, are more inclined to perceive prophetic dreams than others. But there is a category of people who cannot have prophetic dreams. These are people who take intoxication, lead a dirty lifestyle in terms of hygiene and thoughts, in other words - in ignorance, greedy and prone to gossip. All this interferes with the perception of dreams or distorts their meaning. In addition, subtle entities can connect to such people in order to broadcast what is not really there. nine0003
How to understand that a prophetic dream?
- A prophetic dream clearly echoes reality, - tells dream specialist Yaroslav Filatov . - It is about significant events for us. This is either a warning or a prediction.
But a prophetic dream may not come true. For example, if a person, having seen something terrible in a vision, in reality will actively influence events in order to avoid trouble. And then the prophetic night vision, as it were, is no longer prophetic.
- A prophetic dream can be recognized by the feeling with which you wake up - teaches psychologist-hypnologist Sadofyeva . - It is bright, lively and can be repeated with a certain frequency.
If a dream does not find parallels in everyday life, the recognition of the “degree” of its prophecy can be trusted to intuition and feelings. Mystic Denis Banchenko assures me that women cope better with this than men.
“Women have a more developed right hemisphere of the brain and the sensory sphere,” he explains. - They usually feel that the dream is prophetic. And it's not just a feeling, it's a signal. nine0003
Well, if the signal did not happen, you can analyze additional signs: and prophetic dreams have them.
— A prophetic dream is distinguished by its detail, — energy therapist Arkina lists . - A person, waking up after a prophetic dream, can even remember tastes, smells, describe in detail events, textures. If a dream left an indelible imprint, an emotion, then it is prophetic.
When are dreams prophetic and when are they not?
People of science who follow Uncle Freud's ideas say: man himself can make his dreams prophetic. Suppose you dreamed of a classmate with whom you had not communicated for many years. For what? What for? What does this dream mean? If nothing is done, it will turn out that absolutely nothing. But, if you call an old friend and talk heart to heart with her, the dream will become prophetic. Another thing, what exactly did the brain and psyche want to say with this dream? Perhaps he is a hint of a lack of communication, or perhaps a reminder of a mistake that should be corrected long ago. By the way, for our inner "I" there are no small topics. This "oak" consciousness believes that the meaning of a prophetic dream is global, pretentious and terrible. For the psyche, which collects the human gut bit by bit, everything is important. And what devalues consciousness - especially. nine0003
“I urge you to actively transform what is happening in your favor, to rethink reality,” psychotherapist Yaroslav Filatov agitates . - I dreamed of an old friend - we call him. You need to allow yourself to make dreams prophetic. Poke around in them, pull out meanings, interpretations from them. But remember, sometimes a dream is just a dream. That's what Sigmund Freud said.
Is it possible to distinguish a prophecy from a figurative picture? Psychiatrists and psychologists say yes.
— The feeling of sleep matters, explains Alexandria Sadofyeva . - If you woke up with a clear understanding of "this means something" - it makes sense to delve into the dream. And if your previous day was filled with a variety of events, then your REM phase (dream phase) will be a little longer than usual, and your dreams will be richer. Since the brain processes information during the REM phase, dreams are nothing more than processing information, sorting it by significance, redirecting it to one or another memory area.
"Not prophetic" dreams leave almost no emotional response in our souls. And very quickly forgotten. nine0003
- A simple dream - even if it was emotional, is erased from memory. - clarifies Alena Arkina . - Details are not remembered.
How to make a prophetic dream come true?
Esoteric Ushmanov advises to turn to god, guardian angel and ancestors for prophetic dreams. Mystic Denis Banchenko recommends resorting to meditation and sleeping in places with "displaced space", whatever that means. Psychologist Alexandria Sadofyeva sends hypnologists for installations for prophetic dreams. And dream expert Yaroslav Filatov answers this question as follows:
- You need to sincerely wish, tell yourself: I will try to remember everything and wake up with the memory of a dream. Might work.
When a person attunes himself in this way, a so-called sentinel center is created inside his psyche, which prevents the images that come in a dream from slipping away. He seems to cling to them and pulls them to the surface. In this state, with an activated sentinel center, a person can even influence what happens in a dream. Have you heard of lucid dreams? It's just about them. nine0003
— So that the brain does not wander anywhere, you can give it tasks before going to bed: for example, “let me dream about the resolution of this or that situation” — and describe it, — energy therapist Alena Arkina adds . - If you do this every night, then over time you will learn to control dreams and receive answers to requests. This is a painstaking, but very interesting work to unlock the potential of a person.
