    The true desires and feelings of your heart.  Dreams are sometimes special and sometimes silly.  Sometimes they tell you things you need to know and other times they just make no since.  I can always get something out of a dream because that is what I think they are there for.  I love dreamless nights the most, but when I have someone come to me it can be beautiful but scary at the same time.

    For me dreams are those moments when everything happens perfectly for me. It takes me to a place where there is nothing but happiness and it brings close the things and people I love and miss a lot. For each person dreams represent a different feeling of fulfillment which needs to treasured and should be made into a reality.

    It is the life we live while we are asleep which sounds more romantic that just knowing our minds continue to work when we sleep.

    A dream is the brains way of coming up with solutions to our problems, or trying to find answers to our unlimited amount of wants.

    Dreams are places where where you find answers.  The problem is that you don't always have the ability to separate your questions to suit all the answers coming at you. 

    Once, when I was a teenager I had taken apart a stereo to modify it.  But when I put it back together, I couldn't get it to work.  I tried for a couple of weeks to get the stereo working again.  Then, the answer came to me in a dream.  When I awoke, I ran to the stereo and had it corrected in a couple of seconds.

    We know what the dream is about.  What is the question?

    I think dreams are the way we make sense of our world.  They are deliberately fragmented so that we have to piece the meanings together - it keeps us alive.  Always listen to your dreams.....

    Scientifically - Dreams are the 'editing' room of our brain. We take in so much information all day- emotions, facts, visual images, sounds, memories, sensations... all this gets recorded into the short term memory 'film' reel.

    As we sleep we go into REM sleep where the brain sifts through millions of megabytes of data and deletes unnecessary details from the surface memory ( these deleted items according to some still remain in the 'subconscious' hard drive)

    The fragments of these day to day memories emerge as dream narratives combined with some old data like a weird jig saw puzzle of imagery and memories. Sometimes these can contain answers to baffling problems or can take on a interesting twists based on the subconscious desires and fears...
