I had a dream about having silver teeth, does that mean I'll be a rapper?

I feel my dreams express the problems in my life, sometimes. But also I tend to have dreams that make no sense at all and last only about 30 seconds, long enough to confuse the living bejebus out of me. Also, some of my dreams accurately reflect the phobias and paranoia that I have.

I suppose that this all depends on how you define 'meaning.'

To me, all my thoughts have some degree of meaning, even if that meaning is subconscious entertainment, or an image or idea that distracts me from something else. Of course, all that meaning is only meaningful to me -- the meaning is subjective.

One example among many -- several times in my life, I've had dreams of losing my teeth, always when I feel powerless. It's an image that has meaning to me. Anyone who might claim what this dream 'really' means, or similarly, anyone who would pretend to claim that I didn't 'really' dream about this, is severely deluded.

To make statements about dreams that pretend to be objective, is a ludicrous waste of time -- as of yet, there is no 'dreamometer.' That is, we may have some external indications that a dream is occurring, but we have absolutely no means to observe what another person is actually dreaming.

At least not yet. Who knows what'll happen in the future.

No, I think some dreams we have is because of whats in our subconscious. But I have a lot of lucid dreams, so I don't put much stock into meanings when I am aware of my dreams and can sometimes but not very often affect what happens. So if I'm controlling what happen what hidden meaning can I find?

I think everything has a meaning. Especially dreams. I even kinda think dreams can predict the future. One time when I was in the 8th grade i had this dream that I was sitting in a class room by the window with a TV in the corner and there was a picture of the sunflower painting by Van Gough on the wall and on my first day of school when i was a freshman in my English i sat in the front row,next to the window,with a TV in the corner and with the sunflower painting on the wall. I was sooo freaked out by it lol

Do you believe dreams have meaning?
In some way but not always, as I've came to understand from my own.

Do you believe your dreams hold meaning to your waking life?
Again not always as I've came to understand from my own experience, especially if I'm having a lucid dream and I have complete control over it.

Usually when i actually do dream they come true in a few months or years after i had the dream its kind of weird. The most recent one was when i was playing a match of LoL with a champion i had never seen. Few months later vicktor came out and when i played him i was like oh snap i dreamed of this. Its kinda scary in a way because i also have some dreams where terrible things happen =/

I guess only dreams that have not been interrupted are only dreams with meanings.

Most of the time no . . . sometimes it is hard not to think there's something there.

Had a dream about this girl I knew in 5th grade. She was walking down the hall with her best friend, even remembered what clothes they were wearing. It happened two days later.

On the other hand I used to dream about falling . . . then I hit the bottom, twice. Don't have those kind of dreams anymore.

No they only tell you what you've been thinking about and doing recently all thrown into a giant mess of memories that make strange stories.

Well, my wet dreams have to mean something.
