significance of dreams has probably been debated since people first developed
the ability to communicate. Despite this, there's still no agreement
on why we dream. It's hard to believe that dreams have no meaning at
all, though, especially when it's so much fun to try to figure out what
they're trying to tell us. To help you interpret your dreams, we've developed
a dictionary you can use to look up some of the images and feelings commonly
found in these night time visions. Another good thing to try when interpreting
dreams is just to trust your instincts! Keep in mind that this is for
entertainment purposes and shouldn't be taken too seriously.
