Meaning of Dreams

Thu, Sep 10, 2009


Have you been wondering how you can interpret some of your dreams? The dream interpretation table below will decipher the meaning of twelve universal dreams and their opposites meaning.

  • For over 100 years the scientists, mostly psychiatrists, were trying to find correlation between our daily encounters and our dreams during the night sleep.
  • However, the common expectation among many people that the dream content reflect our life in some way has not been scientifically proven.
  • Since remarkable discoveries of the last two centuries about our brain functions, sleep, and dreams, the science of sleep reveals that very few symptoms of possible illnesses can be displayed in our dream, most of the time related to the lack of breathing, hypertension, high or cold temperature, and similar problems.

The modern science of dream interpretation existing today consists of several systems distinguishing dreams by categories. Psychologist Patricia Garfield, a famous dream investigator and co-founder of the Association for the Study of Dreams, has identified 12 typical dreams that are common among people around the world. She describes these categories in her book, The Universal Dream Key (Cliff Street Books, 2001).

Each category has been identified as having negative and a positive meaning. Select dream description below, which close to your own to see what it could mean and how your dream has been explained:
