I did a research on the net and came across shocking things about dreams :D I hope that you all like this article & give this article a thumbs-up if you like it :) Thank you =]
Dreaming is one of the most mysterious and interesting experiences in our lives.But although dreams are a common occurrence, people still have a lot of questions regarding them. And this article will talk about some of the facts about dreams.
AMAZING THINGS ABOUT DREAMS THAT YOU PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW
#1 You can have several—even a dozen—dreams in one night.
It’s not just one dream per night, but rather dozens of them, say experts—you just may not remember them all.It is estimated that most people have more than 100,000 dreams in a lifetime.
#2 Not Everyone Dreams in Color
#3 You can’t read while dreaming, or tell the time
If you are unsure whether you are dreaming or not, try reading something. The vast majority of people are incapable of reading in their dreams. The same goes for clocks: each time you look at a clock it will tell a different time and the hands on the clock won’t appear to be moving
#4 Inventions inspired by dreams
Dreams are responsible for many of the greatest inventions of mankind. A few examples include:
The idea for Google -Larry Page
Alternating current generator -Tesla
Periodic table -Dimitri Mendeleyev …
They are also “recharging” our creativity.So the more you dream,the more creative you are :)
#5 Blind people dream too
Blind people who were not born blind see images in their dreams but people who were born blind don’t see anything at all. They still dream, and their dreams are just as intense and interesting, but they involve the other senses beside sight.
#6 In our dreams we only see faces that we already know
It is proven that in dreams we can only see faces that we have seen in real life before.But we just do not remember the faces
#7 Animals do have dreams too
#8 Dreaming, or sleeping, can help you to learn.

#9 70% of all the characters in a man’s dream are other men, but women’s dream contain an equal amount of women and men.
#10 If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.
Many people assume that but there are no valid scientific explanation and proof to it
#11 You can’t move while dreaming.
Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is a normal stage of sleep characterized by rapid movements of the eyes.During REM sleep the body is paralyzed by a mechanism in the brain in order to prevent the movements which occur in the dream from causing the physical body to move.If you move while dreaming,you can not longer dream
#12 Several surveys across large population sets indicate that between 18% and 38% of people have experienced at least one precognitive dream and 70% have experienced déjà vu

#17 Recurring dreams may be your mind’s way of telling you something.
Do you have the same nightmare over and over again? Experts suggest looking for underlying messages in recurring dreams so that you can rid yourself of them.
#18 Your dreams and reality are interconnected
Perhaps you’ll be surprised to know that most of your dreams are the reflection of those things that happen in your life. For example, you can hear a song while sleeping and just after waking up you will discover that it was playing on the TV .
#19 External factors invade our dreams.
This phenomenon is called dream incorporation wherein a part of reality is included in our dream in some way.And When we dream, we tend to include things that are actually happening in real life.
#20 Many facts and aspects about dreaming are still unknown.Experts still do not have all answers about dreaming :)
And Now,Im going to talk a bit about intepretations of dreams. Using dream interpretation to explore dream symbols and learn a dream’s meaning can perhaps lead to understanding ourselves better.But there is no scientific argument and we don’t really know if those interpretations are true. I have done a small research on google and find out some common dreams and what they are supposed to mean.
Common Dream Themes and Their Interpretations
You’re falling, . and then you wake up. This is a very common dream and is said to symbolize insecurities and anxiety. Something in your life is essentially out of control and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Another interpretation is that you have a sense of failure about something.
What it usually symbolizes is that you’re running away from your problems. What that problem is depends on who is chasing you
:) Taking an exam (or forgetting that you have one)
What experts say this may mean is that you’re being scrutinized about something or feel you’re being tested — maybe you’re facing a challenge you don’t think you’re up to. You don’t feel prepared or able to hold up to the scrutiny. It may also mean there is something you’ve neglected that you know needs your attention.Too much stress and pressure can make you have such dreams
:) Running, but going nowhere
You’re trying to do too many things at once and can’t catch up or ever get ahead.
Typically, dreaming that you are flying means you are on top of things. You are in control of the things that matter to you. Or, maybe you’ve just gained a new perspective on things. It may also mean you are strong willed and feel like no one and nothing can defeat you.
Do dreams really reveal your hidden fears and desires, or are they just reflections of daily life? Well, dream interpretations can be right or wrong. Some people believe in it while others not :)
The psychology of dreams is indeed very interesting and I hope that you learnt a lot from this article :)
