Dreams and What They May Mean

Updated on July 25, 2020

When we sleep, we dream many dreams

When we sleep we dream our dreams, they are all sorts of dreams, some people believe that all the dreams mean something to the dreamer, one way or another, so, it would be helpful to know their meanings. So, in this article let us talk about it.

Talking about dreams

Welcome to our article (7), Dreams and what they may mean

May God guide and help me to write the right things?

Dear readers, after writing our last article “Dreamed about God”, we want to explain how we feel about dreams, and the connections that they can have in our lives. Now, because this article is following our article, “I dreamed about God”, we better talk about the spiritual dreams first, then we will talk about dreams in general, and then we will talk about daydreaming.

Now, let me explain, we believe that we are made of two different sides, one is our physical side and then we have a spiritual side, the spiritual side cannot be seen, as it is supposed to be from another dimension and belongs to the spirit world. But when we dream, both sides play a part in our dreams, as we will explain in this article.

Now, since we are writing about spiritual dreams first, we must accept that the most important night-dreams that we can have in our lives, must be those dreams that come from the other side, which people call the spiritual world of the dead, where all spiritual beings exist.

From what we have been told from our forbearers, the souls or the dead can communicate with us during our sleep, also God and other spiritual being can communicate with us in our dreams.

People believe this, because even the Bible reports many dreams that are God send dreams, as we said in, Dreamed about God, you see, it is believed that God communicate to the dreamer’s important things that are about to happen, or whatever God message is. So, we must imagine that God, the spiritual world, the souls of the dead and the cosmos are all connected, if we want to make sense about God send dreams.

Anyhow, this article is supposed to cover all sorts of dreams, so, let us try to explain our dreams.

------------------------------

When we sleep we dream many dreams

Dreaming is a night vision of our own minds, they are our thoughts that become mixed up with other existing elements that exist in the universe, so they can be just about anything, and sometimes they can even be strange to ourselves.

We dream many strange things in our dreams, but a lot of these things are influenced by our own activities during the day, they may change shape and color, but somehow they are linked to our own experience and desires.

Explaining our dreams

We want to explain what we believe dreams could mean. You see, as far as I know everybody dreams, therefore, we must be interested in our dreams. One of the most interesting things in our dreams, is that dreams can be different from everyday life; but are they different? We don’t know. So, we are trying to understand dreams, according to our life experience and what we believe about dreams.

Anyhow, dreams belong to the land of dreams, but they can mean something. So, we must find out for ourselves if they mean anything. Anyhow, in the land of dreams there is freedom of expression, where you can dream anything you like and say anything you want in your dreams, since dreams happen in our minds while we are asleep, so, there are no outside restrictions.

Most times dreams can be what we feel inside, and those things that for some reasons we want to have in real life, or perhaps avoid in real life. But anyhow, we can dream about them, as there is no restriction in dreaming them. Then, dreams come and go just the way they happen, even if there is a link between the dream and the person dreaming it.

Anyhow, I believe that dreams are strange things that go through our brains at night, so, we should not put too much weight on them, but at the same time we should, because they can mean something to us. Anyhow, let me describe dreamland freely, as if it is a dream.

---------------------------------

Describing dreamland, as if it is a dream

YOU ARE ALL WELCOME TO MY DREAMLAND MY FRIEND!

SINCE THIS IS THE LAND OF DREAMS AND FANTASY

Dreams are dreams, and the dreams that we dream can repeat themselves, or they are different from what we dreamed before, but they are our dreams that repeat themselves, in many ways, so, here I am repeating again to my readers;

You are all welcome here, and you can stay here and keep me company, because this article about dreams is free for everybody that in dreams and fantasy likes to dwell.

You see, you can dream whatever dreams you like in dreamland: sweet dreams, love dreams, good dreams, strange dreams, wild dreams and even nightmares. And when you wake up, you can tell us your dreams. You see, most people are curious, and they want to know what other people are dreaming, because they dream themselves; therefore, for this reason, they want to talk about dreams.

Now, if you happen to tell us one of your dreams you have dreamed, or if you listen to somebody else dream being told, please remember, that in dreamland nobody can tell whether the dream that we are telling is the truth as well. Since in dreamland lies may seem truths and truths may seem lies as well; because even I, and I am the dreamer of dreamland, but even I don’t know what my dreams can mean. I know that I have dreamed the dream and that is true, but it is only a dream that has taken place in my mind.

You see, when we dream, our feeling can get mixed-up with our fantasy feeling, some of which can be wishes and desires that we have in real life, so, the outcome of these feelings can be strange and mixed up. Perhaps our minds are trying to sort our feeling up while we are asleep, or is there something in the cosmos of the universe that shows up and links with us while we are dreaming? We really don’t know, but we would like to know, so, let us keep talking about dreams.

---------------------------

The light fantastic of dreamland dreams

Dreamland is a place where everything can happen in our own minds, it could be called the light fantastic, because everything can change very quickly, in another form in another colour, I hope you understand what I mean.
Dreamland is a place where everything can happen in our own minds, it could be called the light fantastic, because everything can change very quickly, in another form in another colour, I hope you understand what I mean.

Now let us talk about our dreams

Dreams are very shifty things, in fact, I think that dreams are the light fantastic, because they can change at any time without warning; they can change in any shape, form or colour, when they change too much it becomes a confusion, so, we give up understanding them, at other times dreams can mean something to us and we want to understand them.

Anyhow, when we dream beautiful dreams that we like, we want to continue to dream whatever we are dreaming, in the hope of being able to achieve at least in our dreams that something that is missing in our normal everyday life. Sometimes our night dreams, can be our daydreams, which are thoughts and desires that we have during our lives, these daydreams can get mixed up with our sleeping dreams.

Now, in this article, we will be talking about normal dreams that we dream at night, and we will be talking about religious dreams. Because these articles will be written beside religious articles, we will be more serious when we talk about religious issues, so, we will avoid those dreams that can offend religious believers; but at the same time, we need to be free to talk about anything in dreamland, because in dreamland there should be no restrictions. You see, we are free to think what we like, we are free to dream what we like, therefore, we should be free to say what we like; but it does not work like that every time.

Anyhow, the dreams that we dream at night are not easy to explain, and it becomes even harder when we want to explain our daydreams, which are not dreams, but they are wishes of things that we would like to have. But let us talk about our modified dreamland.

-----------------------------------------

God the cosmos of the universe and dreams

The dreams that we dream and believe that come from the other side, they may be stored in the cosmos of the universe, which are the energies of the universe, they could also be part of God of the universe, since God could be the universe life energy

Dreams can be serious or fantasy dreams

In dreamland we can dream about anything, be anywhere and say anything, because it is the land of dreams and fantasy, we may even visit strange lands that we have never seen before.

Our modified dreamland

Dear readers, we have modified the original dreamland article, because it was written to cover all dreams. But because I have had several religious dreams that I want to write in these articles, to connect and explain to our readers what these religious dreams mean. So, we are going to add more articles to explain the dreams of spiritual and religious origin.

Anyhow, we dream many dreams during our lives, these dreams cover a large field, some of these dreams can even be daydreams, and plain dreams that we dream at night. Dreams happen for many reasons, and the word dream has many meanings, you see, at this very moment even the dream of writing about dreams, can be said to be a dream of the writer.

Now, let us talk about dreams in a personal way. Dreams can be linked with our life happenings and desires. Dreams can be true or false, since they can represent things that have happened to the dreamer, or they may be false, because the dreamer cannot see that this dream can be linked to him, because nothing similar has ever occurred in his life. We believe that these dreams come from an unknown source and they can mean different things to the dreamer.

Dreams can be hard to understand what they mean, but if we try hard to learn their meanings, we can understand what dreams may mean. You see, even when we tell a dream, it may have different meanings to the people involved. I need to explain here, of course, I have dreamed the dream that I am telling you and that’s true. But it is only a dream and it cannot be the truth just because it is a dream; but at the same time, it cannot be a lie as well, because what I am telling you, it has taken place at least inside my mind. You see, dreams are dreams and they can cover a large part of everything, so, you can just dream about anything, they just happen when we are asleep. But there are also the daydreams to talk about.

So, let us talk about the daydreams that we dream during the day, because everyone of us thinks and desire things during our lives, these are our daydreams.

----------------------------

Now let us talk about day dreaming

Most of us will be daydreaming during our lives, daydreaming are those thoughts and desires that come to our mind, when we would like to have something that we haven’t got or do something that we are not allowed to do openly. So, we start daydreaming while we think of a way how to satisfy our desire. Anyhow, I have been daydreaming, but let me describe how this daydreaming has affected me.

So, here I am, in my dreamland my friends. Because this is where sometimes I like to dwell these days, whether I like to be in it or not makes no difference, because my lifestyle forces me to be in dreamland, to dream about those things that I would like to have in real life, but I cannot have.

Therefore, nowadays in the land of dreams and fantasy I often happen to dwell, which is a situation forced by life’s events beyond my control. I don’t like being in this situation, because by nature I am a doer and not a dreamer, so, I would like to do physical work, since that would keep my body fit and my mind occupied, and it would give me pleasure when I finish a task, because I have achieved something worth doing.

Anyhow, in the land of dreams and fantasy there are no man-made rules, and we are set free of all human acquired restrictions. Therefore, in the realm of dreams and fantasy everybody may willingly dwell, because we can dream of anything that we want. And in doing so, we can avoid being depressed, since we avoid that despair that otherwise may sent us crazy. Therefore, for someone to dream in the land of dreams and fantasy may be said that it is an escape from realty. But at the same time there is no harm done in daydreaming our dreams, since it becomes an essential escape that serves well all humanity, because somehow it can help in keeping a balanced mental health.

Now let us try to classify the type of dreams that we dream at night.

--------------------------------------------------

Trying to classify the types of dreams

Dear readers, we will try to classify the dreams that we dream, because we want to understand our dreams: We believe that there are two types of dreams, they are: the dreams that we dream when we are asleep, and the dreams that we dream when we are awake. The dreams that we dream when we are awake are wishes and thoughts that we have, while we are awake, so, we can say they are wishful thinking; but let us talk about the dreams that we dream at night.

The dreams that we dream when we are asleep can be divided into three types at least:

(1) Shallow dreams, that can be our body dreams.

(2) Normal mental dreams and deep psychological dreams.

(3) Dreams from the unknown, from the Afterlife world and also the cosmic world.

All the dreams that we dream when we are sleeping are linked close together, they can be so close together that it is hard to know when one ends and the other begins, in fact, they overlap each other a lot. And sometimes the daydreams can creep into the night dreams.

Sleeping dreams, Type-one.

These type of dreams are mostly shallow dreaming, and they are a reflection of life that we live at that particular time, and part of these dreams we’ll dream while we are half asleep, and part of them when we are fully asleep; these dreams reflect the happenings of the day before, or what we have thought that was about to happen, or something that our body needs and the need surfaces in our thought as we sleep, so, we can say that our activities and desires shows in our dreams.

-------------------

Our activities are shown in our dreams

We believe that our activities shows in our dreams; in dream type one, it is likely to happen that if we have had a very busy and confuse day, our dreams will show that feeling of confusion, and while we dream of one thing it suddenly changes to something else, and there are times when the very same objects that we have used during the day may come into our dreams, perhaps they will be there only for a split second, or they are replaced by something else and only the rhythm of the happenings may be present in our dream. If we want to understand our dreams, we must remember that it is the dreamer himself that can understand his own dreams better than anybody else; since he is the only person that knows what has gone through his mind.

Anyhow, these types of dreams seem to suggest that our mind is sorting out the happenings of the day before or recent activities, and perhaps filing them in its own way in a corner of our brain, before our mind can have a rest and move on doing something else.

A second type of these dreams, it is when we are asleep, and our body feels the need to have something that is necessary to its welfare, then we may dream of the desired things: So, if we go to bed hungry in our sleep we may dream of food, and we try to eat it but we would not succeed, so, our hunger remains with us. If we are thirsty we may dream of water, and of fountains and other drinks, but somehow, we don’t drink and if we do we wonder why it doesn’t quench our thirst; and this is all because our body needs are still present in our dream.

You see, if we need to go to the toilet for a piss, then, we will dream of trying to find a toilet, and we will have all sorts of problems to find a spot to piss, and when we have found one and try to piss we wake up and find out that we need to go to the toilet.

If at night we have a bad digestion or something else that affect our well-being, whether we are aware of it or not, we may have a nightmare. Here it seems to me that our mind doesn’t want our body to relax completely, so, we have a nightmare to keep our circulation going faster than it would normally do if we were sound asleep, and in doing so, we may solve our present physical problem.

So, all these types of dreams have a purpose, which is to adjust any difference between mind and body while we are asleep. And, our mind needs to dream in order to review those day happenings, and file them in its own way.

We believe that it works like this:

For example; if you fill up a clean glass with dirty water, and then leave it on the bench overnight: In the morning you will find that most of the impurities in the water are settled at the bottom, and a few that are lighter than water at the top, so, most of the water now is clear water.

In a parallel way like the glass of water, while our body rests at night our mind works by sorting things out and settling things down, so, during our dreams our mind is looking at the impurities that are settling down, and our dream are the process of settlement and purification, and when everything has settled our mind then will file them to keep a record and shut them down in a corner of our brain.

The conclusion for this type of dreams is that: Dreams type-one have something to do with the ever-present body needs of the dreamer.

Now, what we have written is our personal explanation for dreams type 1 only. Here we should have followed with dreams type 2. But, because this article is becoming too long and dreams type 2, resamples cosmic dreams and other dreams; dreams type 2 and other explanations will be written in our next article.

Because in this last sub-article, we want to show briefly their connection.

-----------------------------------------------

Looking at the cosmos of the universe

We believe that the cosmos of the universe, can extend in the whole universe and it would be able to hold all records since the beginning of times. You see, if we can record things, there must be a way that these record occur also in the universe.

All sorts of communication and wavelength exist in the universe. Therefore, we should assume that some records exist and can be made available to the dreamers when they are dreaming.
All sorts of communication and wavelength exist in the universe. Therefore, we should assume that some records exist and can be made available to the dreamers when they are dreaming.

Dreams type 2 and cosmic dreams

So, let us talk about sleeping dreams, type-two and three, since we have classified dreams type one as being shallow dreams that are brought about from our daily activities and our body needs.

But dreams type two and three are different from dreams type 1. So, we can say that, dreams 2 and 3, are the mental dreams, and they include deep psychological dreams and cosmic dream. These are the real dreams that we dream, we dream them when we are waking up from a deep sleep; they can be called the dreams of our minds, or our souls. These dreams can be detached from the present body needs; therefore, they cannot be explained like dreams type one.

So, when we dream these dreams that are not connected with our body needs, like dreams type 1, the following question can arise; why do we dream these dreams and where do these dreams come from?

We believe that they can exist and come from the cosmos, since the cosmos can hold all the records of the universe. So, let us assume that the cosmos can hold any record within itself, and the way of how everything is communicated in the whole wide world, therefore, there are all sorts of sounds, words and ideas flouting throughout the cosmos, now when we go to sleep we can tune into this cosmos records, and so, we may dream anything at all including the strangest things. It can be like looking at the TV where you tune in and watch whatever is there. This setup can apply to all spiritual being of the cosmos, this can explain how God and the other spiritual beings use the cosmos.

Well this is our imaginary way to explain these dreams, whether it is right or not we cannot tell, but it is a possible way how things are in the world of dreams.

Anyhow, this article is too long. So, see you soon in our next article of, Dreams and spiritual beliefs, including an outline of sleeping dreams type two and three, and Cosmic spiritual dreams.

May God bless us all.
