The meaning of the dream means I'm dreaming.

No. It doesn't tell you your future or even who you are attracted to. Freud thought it gave insight to a persons subconscious but most psychologist today would disagree. Nowadays it's thought that the brain uses dreams to get rid of "junk" and even give you nightmares to help you get over fears.

For some I just always had it in my head that, what ever my dream is will be the opposite in real life

Yes I do.

The idea that dreams are just a random sequence of boredom for the mind doesn't make any sort of sense to me.

That said, I'm not sure if I buy into the Freudian and Jungian views on dreams. If I had to pick, Jung got it right more than anyone with his Archetypes but I certainly don't think it's a true guideline for each individual person.

So .... in essence; "they do have meaning but I don't know exactly what that is."

I had a dream when all of my teeth were broken off and my mouth was bleeding bad. D:
Hopefully that doesn't mean anything, I have good teeth too though. >3>

that is where you may be wrong. i find my dreams to be very meaningful.


Actually, this theory is psychologically correct. As dreams are just mere random bits of information being processed in the brain, there is no true meaning to it, scientifically.

Yup, I had a dream about my parents and I getting into a car accident. Later that week, I had a dejavu moment and told them to stop at the intersection even though the arrow was green. And as I said that the very truck I saw in my dream ran through the red light, but we did not get hit...sooooo....yeah not that I am psychic or something crazy like that. Just that your dreams do mean something whether it is what you did that day or even something that will happen...

Of course Dreams have meaning... and I use dream moods also. Everything you do, see , touch, think, feel or whatever has an impact on your subconscious whether positive or negative. You should always pay attention to your dreams as some could be prophetic , warning you about danger or bring attention to stress.

Anxiety dreams are the worse though. When you dream your teeth are falling out or something.. that means there is some serious stress going on in your life.

But anyway, you have the right idea. However, be careful of Lucid dreaming.. when you are on the border or dreaming and being awake. You will see some scary sh!t. You can see a monster or whatever come into your room and sit on your chest... so please do not Lucid Dream on purpose or if you do make sure it is with someone.

I did it once by myself.. IT WAS SCARY AS HELL!!! I counted down from 10,000 when I was a little sleepy. (I was on my couch when this happened) I was staring at the ceiling (I'm on my back) and I heard a noise coming from above my head. I looked up to see a mirror image of me but I was laying on my stomach instead of my back. We were eye to eye.. but there was huge lego blocks next to the mirror image. The me in the mirror or whatever grabbed a big I mean like 5 or 6 inches wide and started stuffing it down her mouth.

I could feel the entire block going down my throat. I was paraylzed and tried to scream but couldn't... Finally I snapped out of it and vowed NEVER EVER NEVEEEERRR to try lucid dreaming again. NEVER!!! That was some scary sh!T.

So anyway... be careful... your mind is a serious tool. If you do it... please HAVE SOMEONE THERE TO WATCH YOU... THIS IS SOME FREDDY KRUEGER SH!T..

Here a link: http://www.wikihow.com/Lucid-Dream

Google more about it before you try.. PLEASE WITH SOMEONE PRESENT!!!

Some people have did it without knowing it is a dream within a nightmare.. They dream they are getting ready for work or school, them BAM! Open the bedroom door and there is Jason Voorhies or some Monster.. so please be careful.

P.S. I majored in Psychology.

Dreams to me have very odd reasons like "don't eat anymore pizza before bed" but then other dreams have morals or things like that such as "you should get that lottery ticket next Tuesday" or something like that. You would have to be a real pro to figure out what a dream really means. Since most of us aren't (right?), I'd wait for it to happen in reality. If it never does-like I forget about it as time goes by-then I had no actual DIE-HEART EMERGENCY meaning for me to understand in the dream.
I just like dreams 'cause they keep my brain from getting bored. =w=
