Y dreams??

Dreams are pictures, sounds and feelings that
happen during sleep. In the course of history people
have had many explanations for dreams. In
ancient Greece dreaming was thought to be a
kind of contact with the gods. Sometimes they
were regarded as signs of what may happen in
the future.

Over the past many dream theories have emerged. The most famous expert on dreaming
was Sigmund Freud, an Austrian doctor . At the end of the 19th century he found
out that a part of our brain is the subconscious . Our mind keeps everything that we
might want but cannot have there. It is a place where we keep our desires and wishes .
In dreams we act out these wishes.
Our sleep is divided into five stages. In the first stage we do not sleep very deeply and
we wake up easily. During the following stages our sleep gets deeper and deeper. After
the fourth stage REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep begins. During this phase our
heart rate and breathing gets faster . Blood pressure goes up and the brain starts to
work but the body does not . That is why we don’t act out our dreams because the
body is inactive.
Most dreaming occurs in this phase. There can be up to seven such REM phases in
one night .

Dreaming is an activity of the brain. It produces electrical waves which can be measured
with an electroencephalograph . Dreams occur when
brain waves are especially fast.
Everyone dreams. If you think that you never dream, you are
wrong . Most of the time we cannot remember our dreams.
Theorists say that we dream mostly about the thoughts and
wishes that we repress . Others say that if dreaming is not so
intense it is difficult to remember them anyway. Another reason
may be that dreams are never the same , they have to
be repeated in order for us to remember them.
Most people cannot control their dreams , they just happen. Very few people experience
lucid dreaming. They can control what happens in their dreaming while they are
Even blind people dream. They may see images of events that they have experienced
before they became blind. On the other hand a person who was born blind does not
see pictures in dreams, but they can hear, smell and taste in them.
People often have the same dreams over and over again. They may be events in your
life that have caused problems which you have not solved yet. Nightmares are dreams
that are so terrible that you usually wake up. There is medical treatment for nightmares
. You can go to a therapists who tries to find out why you have nightmares and how to deal with them
Some experts think that dreams are full of symbolic messages that mean something
which is deep inside us. Here are a few popular dreams and how you could interpret
 Being naked in public
In a dream we sometimes realize that we are
completely naked. This may mean that there
is something to hide.
 Falling
Almost everyone has experienced falling from
a place high up. Then suddenly they wake up.
This may mean that something is out of control and you cannot stop it. It also
may mean that you have failed in something that you have done, like your work
or at school.
 Being chased
Many people dream of someone chasing them, a very frightening dream. It symbolizes
running away from problems that you may have.
 Flying
Flying dreams often mean that you are in control of things. You are very strongwilled
and can observe everything . It is often a symbol of having success.(Source Internet)
