She dreams in color, she dreams in red

Dreams have always fascinated us, hasn't it? Its all that mystery, the familiar, and the unknown melded together in a painfully incoherent stream. Someone said to me before that our dreams come in three segments. The first part is about our last waking thoughts, our transition from wakefulness and sleep. The second part reveals our desires, our aspirations and the third, and are you ready for this, tells of our premonitions, our sixth sense, our third eye or whatever it is that allows us a glimpse of things that have yet to occur. If only that were true. But you've got to admit that its a fresh take on dreams (or maybe its the first time I've ever heard it described that way).

Years back I endeavored to diarize my dreams but I was too lazy to do it consistently. There were those that stood out thoug, and I really love it when they're all so vivid and lifelike. I'm sure everyone has dreamt about riding a bicycle down a flight of stairs, or driving a car in a dirt road. Or that one where you're walking and that little moving picture in you mind's eye zoom in on your feet as you're striding then you suddenly trip or miss a step waking you up.

 

 

My friend, our dream expert who also told me about the three segments had a few more very basic but interesting concepts about the things we dream of. She said that dreams occurring indoors or inside a home relates to our own personal issues. Being chased by animals or just being chased is an expression of our resistance to something that someone is making us do. Water, now water in dreams is a biggie because its premonitory. It is all in the shade of the water she said. Dark water is death, blue water is travel, white water means happiness. If you are swimming in your dreams you are examining some aspects of your mind and feelings in the state of unconsciousness. It could also be that you want emotional support, this type of dream is frequent in people undergoing therapy, If you are submerged in the water then you are struggling to face your emotional difficulties.

Dreams are mostly monochromatic, every so often though we dream in color. Some people dream in color a lot and its been said that these people have highly active imagination.

Flying dreams are also known as lucid dreams, where the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming. Predictably, driving dreams depict one's life journey but it also parallels your sex life, the way you are handling the vehicle and the type of vehicle can be correlated to the state of your sex life. Snakes are your fears. Decaying or falling teeth warns of a pending health or business problem. Gleaming white teeth means fulfillment and brushing one's teeth is indicative of one's level of confidence.

The next time you remember your dream, try to write it down, it may hold some revealing insights on the state of your mind and being.

nice insights indeed! i remember a time being fascinated with dreams so much so that i borrowed a copy of Freud's interpretation of dreams, or some other book on this, from the library. dreams are indeed the last unknown frontier!

Yep, that would be Freud.I still think all this dream interpretation is more guesswork than actual science. That is why its so intriguing right?

I tried writing my dreams down too and its amazing that you can remember if you write them down fresh and come back to them, years later and are able to visualize the same images. I wish I had the discipline to keep writing them daily.

And what about recurring dreams? I have one about my mom and boxes upon boxes of chocolate cakes, which I had twice in September and twice in October. It really got to me because my mother died of diabetes complications. Of course everybody as well as me believe that its as nearest as she could get to warning me off bad eating habits hehehe so I heeded the warning.
