“I failed a test” Dream

Posted By admin on August 27th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/%e2%80%9ci-failed-a-test%e2%80%9d-dream/

Dreaming about failing a test is one of the more common dreams probably next to being naked in public or sex related dreams.   Most of the time when dreaming about failing a test, the person is being scrutinized by other people making them feel uncomfortable and brining about the feeling of being graded or tested leaving the dreamer feeling anxious and agitated.

Pay attention to your dream.  If you constantly dream about breaking your pencil or find that you are late for the exam, then these dreams mean that you have an issue with self-esteem and confidence.  Worrying about not having a good grade means that you worry that people do not accept you for who you are.

Nightmares

Posted By admin on August 26th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/nightmares-2/

Nightmares are a fact of life.  Everybody has had a nightmare at some point of their lives.  A nightmare is a disturbing, emotional, scary and most of the time full of horror.  The dreamer often wakes up scared and frightened.  Some visions in nightmares include murder, being squashed, being beaten, verbally abused, attacked, burned and other emotional or traumatic situations.

There are instances where nightmares are induced by fevers and other physical causes.  Psychological traumas are also other causes of nightmares.  Eating before bedtime can also induce nightmares as the brain and digestive system works overtime to breakdown food providing stimuli for dream activities.  Dream interpreters say that a nightmare is a way for the mind to call the dreamer’s attention to a specific incident or situation in real life.  During a nightmare the brain is simply saying to notice and confront the issue.

Kisses and Kissing in Dreams

Posted By admin on August 26th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/kisses-and-kissing-in-dreams/

Is a kiss really just a kiss?  This may be true in real life but in the land of dreams a kiss can mean different things.  In real life, a kiss is intimate, it shows love and affection.  In fairy tales, we have Snow White and Sleeping Beauty being kissed by their Prince Charming’s back to life and the Frog Prince who was kissed by the Princess.  In fairy tales a kiss means rebirth.

When dreaming about kisses and kissing, examine what kind of kiss it was, who was doing the kissing and your own emotional response to the kiss.  A kiss on the cheek from a relative means that you are seeking approval from authority figures.  If you shy away from a kiss then it means that feel like you are being smothered and is looking to break away.

Visions of the Future

Posted By admin on August 23rd, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/visions-of-the-future/

When I was a child, I dreamed a lot. Some I never got the chance to retell because they were blurry while others were too vivid that I can still remember them today. When my dreams became too scary and frightening for me, I just ran to my mommy and would tell her my dreams with it’s  every detail. She, on the other hand, would patiently listen to my ramblings no matter how outrageous it may be. There were also times I would wake her up in the middle of the night just to tell my dreams. They seemed endless, like a river steadily streaming down to nowhere and I was compelled to tell for no particular reason. The weird part was, my nanny would scribble away in her diary afterwards. I never asked why.

Few years forward, I remember this one sunny afternoon when I felt so dizzy I need to sleep it off. I was about to see my friends so I tried to shake it off but to no avail. I ended up snoozing on the sofa. As usual, I dreamed. I dreamed of being in a car with my dad. I was talking incessantly and he was so intent on driving, like he never heard me. Everything seemed fine until an old man suddenly appeared in front of the car and my dad swerved sharply to avoid the old man. Unfortunately, we went off the road and down the cliff. I remembered meeting my dad’s sad eyes before my nanny woke me up after hearing me scream nonstop. She quickly brought me water to drink while I burst out the dream like a mad girl. As I calmed down, she told me never to tell anyone about this dream. My friends came and soon I forgot all about the dream I had. Only, when I got home, my nanny was sitting in the front porch waiting for me to come home and told me the news:  that my father died in a car accident.

Psychic Dreams

Posted By admin on August 22nd, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/psychic-dreams/

Psychic dreams occur when the dreamer experiences something that is close to premonition or precognitive dreams wherein the dreamer is able to know certain information that is otherwise unavailable for them. Psychic dreams always have mysticism surrounding it and while there are real occurrences of the said phenomenon varying from one person’s account to another, a handful of people fiercely claim to be a professional in this field which naturally garnered followers and critics too.

However, the term “psychic dreams” is a very general term and it has its own set of types to differentiate one experience from another. The most popular of which is the precognitive dreams. Precognitive dreams have been popular due to the fact that almost all people got the chance to experience it at least once in a lifetime. Most reported cases involve regular, normal people who happen to experience precognitive dreams without them inducing it. Precognitive dreams happen before the event itself.

Collective Unconscious

Posted By admin on August 18th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/collective-unconscious/

Collective unconscious is a term developed by the famous psychologist Carl Jung which pertains to the independent unconscious part of the human mind containing the concepts of humanity. These, as Carl Jung firmly believed, are concepts deeply instilled in our minds since birth. They are referred to as archetypes or models in which a person would likely take after. Furthermore, the respected psychologists believed that collective unconscious has been around since the beginning of man. His conclusion found evidence through Greek mythology where archetypes are very apparent in each and every character. He explained that Greek mythology is purely based on archetypes and this is the key to learning more about human behavior.

According to Carl Jung, mythology has been the perfect model on how people react and behave when faced in uncertain situations. It reflects clearly what kind of people we are and every story in Greek mythology harbors truth and justification albeit hidden in words. Dreams, on the other hand, are our gateways to the collective unconscious part of our minds since dreaming knows no boundaries and possibilities are limitless. In dreams, the collective unconscious can be heard without being judged unlike when in reality.

Ghosts

Posted By admin on August 16th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/ghosts/

Ghosts are believed to be spirits or souls of dead people who are yet to experience heaven or hell. For reasons unknown, experts believe that these souls stayed behind long after the body is laid to rest and they are unable to move forward to where they must belong now. Experts believed that some of the reasons why lost souls stayed behind are:

·    The dead person might not be aware of his current situation and has been living his life still by doing his everyday routine without interference. This usually happens when the person experienced sudden death for which he was not fully aware. An example of sudden death is when a person died while asleep.
·    Unfinished business can also be a reason why a ghost preferred to stay behind. It was believed that every person has his own mission to do in his lifetime. Not finishing it will only make the soul restless and unable to move on.
·    Strong association to the place or things will hinder a ghost’s ability to move on especially if these are their priceless possessions or if the place played a significant role in their once-lived lives. This explains why ghosts manifest in their old houses or even in places of their deaths.
·    Others believed that some ghosts even refuse to move on since they fear they will meet hell due to wrongdoings they committed while alive.
·    Asian cultures have it that ghosts of loved-ones will manifest if a person is nearing death himself. This belief happens when a dying person is supposedly fetched by his loved-one so the dying person’s soul won’t have to be alone during his journey to after life.

Dream Walker

Posted By admin on August 11th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/dream-walker/

For as long as man has dreamed of flight, the fountain of youth, treasures beyond belief, which is a direct consequence of our ability to dream. For as long as humans can remember we have dreamed. Some have dreamed of better days, while others have nightmares. The dream that I will share with you is quite peculiar, and you will see why.

Dreams can be extremely realistic depending on the individual, or very surreal. Most dreams defy the logic of being awake, yet they still transfer a sense of importance in our lives. While some disregard dreams as nothing more than a jumble of memories, others may tell the future while asleep. Edgar Evans Cayce, or the sleeping prophet, is regarded as the Nostradamus of our time and the most well documented psychic of our time. Though it remains a topic of debate, and one that continues to intrigue the imagination, Mr. Casey was also the most accurate of the psychics in history. In his words “that lack of interest is the reason for poor dream recall; that only the dreamer knows the meaning of his dream; and that a dream is correctly interpreted when it makes sense to the dreamer, when it checks out with his other dreams, and when it moves him forward in his life”, as he put so eloquently.

Premonitions

Posted By admin on August 9th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/premonitions/

Have you ever experienced seeing something happen, perhaps in your dream, only to be notified that your dream came true after a day or so? For most people, premonitions come once or twice in a person’s lifetime while few others experience them on a regular basis. Back then, these people are called as prophet or prophetess and they are revered and well-respected by people. Nowadays, they are called as psychics and sadly, they are not as popular as they once have been.

It was said that premonitions happen all the time, although they sometimes don’t manifest as clearly as to others would be. Some who prefer to romanticize the whole affair of premonition would say that it only manifests when a certain event will happen to someone you love or who is very dear to you, like a tie that binds a mother to her child, it forms a certain level of intuition or gut-feel which almost always results to premonitions of things before they actually happen to a person.

Dream Interpretation – Finding Meaning Within Our Dreams

Posted By admin on August 6th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/08/dream-interpretation-finding-meaning-within-our-dreams/

By Janice Hunter

Your dreams are reflections of your inner being. Through dreams, we are brought back to our primal selves where fears are real and desires are possible. Most of the time, dreams are not controllable, they just manifest the way your mind directs them to be. This is because your subconscious mind is in charge now while your conscious mind takes its much needed rest.

There are many ways to interpret your dreams, from one belief to another. Some see dreams as warnings of illnesses and bad luck while others search for symbols to foresee their future. While this may hold true for some, most of us ordinary beings use dreams as outlet of our suppressed reality.
