This is a reprinting an old post of mine from the old Dream Board -

Dreams can be the reintegrating of fractured personality structure and character aspects
Dreams can be the products of cerebral disturbances that arise from chemical or hormonal imbalances...
Dreams can be responses to sensory stimulus. For example if a blanket covers part of your face while you sleep and hinders your breathing you may dream of suffocation…
Dreams can be sleep guardians meant to keep the dreamer in the realm of dreams while the body needs to do whatever it needs to do to heal itself physically...
Dreams may be an expression of needs, desires, hopes, wishes, conflicts, fears, tensions, problems, tangles, communications, premonitions, garbage in, garbage out...an examination of whatever maybe impinging at the time on our consciousness, our interconnectedness with ourselves and the people in our lives...what has happened, what is happening, what we think or dread may happen...
Dreams can be any combination of these elements...


There are several types of dreams…

Garbage in Garbage out dreams…
These are dreams that are characterized by whatever the dreamer happened to see or hear or even taste or smell or touch just before going to bed…IE; Watching a horror flick and then having nightmares of the monsters from that movie…Another example if you hear a particular piece of music before bed it may play throughout your dream…

Physiological dreams…
These are dreams that are induced by ones own physiology…examples of this would be having a full bladder and dreaming of spills or eating too much too close to bed and as a result having nightmares of bloated heavy creatures…

Telepathic dreams…
These care dreams that involve messages from others: for example: Dreaming of a relative who comes to tell you they have died or has been injured in some way or for example dreaming something about someone or something’s current state of existence…   

Premonition or Retrocognition dreams…
These are dreams where information about the future or the past are presented to the dreamer…Ie: premonitions of a future catastrophe or conversely with retrocognition dreaming of how a particular even took place in the past…
There are theories that this works because though time is perceived as linear it is really more ummm;  well the idea is  that all time exists at the same time and is therefore accessible if we but could set aside our mental conditioning which is what happens a lot during dreaming.…

Needs, desires, hopes dreams 
These are dreams about what is on the dreamers mind at the time of dreaming. A review of what has happened in the dreamer’s life or the life of someone the dreamer knows, what the dreamer would want to happen, what the dreamer worries may happen, What the dreamer hopes may happen…

Astral traveling
These are dreams that are really considered the dreamer’s explorations of out of body experiences while asleep…

Past life dreams-
Recollecting the occurrences of some past existence whether the dreamers or someone elses...

If anyone has anything else to add please feel free...

Blessings...

Urukai:


I'd like to read of some personal experience, not just regurgitated theory!
