It was a huge bungalow. Very beautifully done interiors take my breath away. Lovely colours on the wall, the plants are beautiful and placed well. Ah !!! There’s lot of light and good ventilation, too. The kitchen is the best – very tastefully done modular kitchen. The best of the best is the stairway that starts in the centre of that huge living room and curves its way up, to where the bedrooms are located. In that balcony, there is this huge swing, which is my favourite, from childhood days.
And I am wearing a beautiful silk saree. I am so engrossed in conversations and at the same time, I pause and admire the beauty of the house. WOW !!! It does look so grand.
I am the proud owner of this amazing bungalow !!!! How lucky I am. Suddenly two Labrador dogs come and start licking me and jumping on me. I am so delighted to see those loving dogs.
TTrrrnnnnggggg……..TTTrrrrnnnnggggg…….Goes the alarm and suddenly I pop up on the bed – OMG !!!! Was that a dream !!!! But it looked so real. I really felt myself in that dream. How can it be a dream ????? OH !!!! Why can’t it be true ???????
So, what are these dreams ????? They have always held my curiosity. How do those dreams happen ???? Do they send us any messages ???? Is there a hidden meaning behind the dreams ?????
While I remember some dreams with vivid clarity, others are just a blurred activity.
Some dreams are in black and white, while others are in colour. Isn’t it strange ????
I used to work as a Software Programmer. And there were times, when I used to break my head on why a particular piece of code didn’t work. The whole day at office, will not give me any solutions. And I’ll sleep on that problem. Miracle of miracle !!!! I’ll get the solution to my problem code in my dream. New ways of writing code, will materialize in my dream. How ???? If all these ideas are there in my mind, then while I am awake, why doesn’t such ideas come to me ???? Why does it have to come only in my dreams ????
My daughter had a dream recently that she is walking on a road. On the left hand side, she sees the shops of T.Nagar (the famous shopping place in Chennai) and to the right she sees the General Bazaar (of Hyderabad) !!!! She thinks that even though she enjoys Chennai, she’s missing Hyderabad – Its her version of explanation for her dream.
And she gets such fairy tale dreams – Hogwarts, World tour through space and many more !!!!! I think that she eventually will turn a Travel Journalist – My prediction after listening to her dreams – Howzaat !!!!!
And there have been dreams in which she is writing her exams – either she has forgotten the answers or the time is up and she is still not finished. She wakes up, totally upset. It takes a herculean task from my side, to pacify her that the dream will certainly not come true and that she needs to be more confident and do her best. So, is her inner fears coming out, in her dream ?????
If it is the sub-conscious mind telling me something, then why sometimes I forget what happened in my dream ????
Rarely, I do see those loved ones, who are not in this world anymore. So, whats their message to me ???? Why did they come in my dream ???
Sometimes, the dream is just full of bad incidents and sad happenings. Why ????? Are the dreams trying to alert me to avoid something ?????
Wiki, please help me.
Dreams are a succession of images, thoughts, sounds, or emotions passing through the mind during sleep. The content and purpose of dreams are not fully understood, though they have been a topic of speculation and interest throughout recorded history. The scientific study of dreams is known as oneirology.
Throughout history, people have sought meaning in dreams or divination through dreams. Dreams have been described physiologically as a response to neural processes during sleep, psychologically as reflections of the subconscious, and spiritually as messages from gods or predictions of the future.
While there are so many studies and researches going on, nobody has been able to nail the indications of a dream correctly. Some speculations have been proved, but I believe there have been instances, when they were not.
So, when people tell you Dream Big – doesn’t it actually mean to Think Big – Because, most of the times, I don’t remember my dreams.
May all your Dreams come true – Oh !!! No !!! Certainly not those bad incidents one !!!! Let only the good ones come true !!!! After all, I am human !!! I certainly opt for the better ones.
So, what are your dreams ???? Do you believe that the dreams are telling you something ?????
