Welcome to Meaning of Dreams, our aim is to help you understand your dreams through the use of our dream dictionary and our many articles on dreaming and sleeping.
We encourage you to participate in the dreaming forums where you can discuss all types and dreams with other people. You can also use the forum to suggest new pages if you can't find an answer to what you're looking for on our website.
Many people come here to talk about their dreams because sometimes they leave you feeling confused or disturbed, so discussing them helps achieve peace of mind. In most cases people find that the underlying message in their nightmares is not as unsettling as they originally thought.
With a little knowledge and help, all of which is available here, you will find that figuring out what your dreams mean becomes second nature and a very useful tool for enabling you to find guidance in your life.
Our specialists have studied the works of Freud, Jung, Perls and Adler and continue to follow modern scientific research in the field of dreaming, undertaken by scientists like J. Allan Hobson, Robert McCarley, Calvin Hall, Robert van de Castle, David Foulkes, Mark Solms and Antti Revonsuo, as well as the latest research published by the International Association for the Study of Dreams.
