They know no boundaries between young and old, rich and poor, races, religions and nationalities, In every cul ture we find some version of "sleeping on a problem" before making a decision. The Bible and other ancient texts are filled with examples of how dreams have played important roles in people's lives.

Every detail, even the most minute element in your dream is important and must be considered when analyzing your dreams. Each symbol represents a feeling, a mood, a memory or something from your unconscious. Look closely at the characters, animals, objects, places, emotions, and even color and numbers that are depicted in your dreams. Even the most trivial symbol can be significant.

To understand the real meaning of dreams we must delve beneath the surface to the purpose of it all. Why are we here? How are we to answer the age-old question: Who am I?
Dreams very often portray a snapshot of some part of your daily life or something on your mind, presented from the perspective of your subconscious mind. As you examine each dream, you can often find a parallel between each element in the dream and a certain element of your waking life or mind.
The moment you wake up from a dream, you already know what it means. The answers lie deep within your consciousness where the dream and its symbolism were created, right where you left them when you woke up. The essence of the dreamer’s quest is to coax those secrets out into the light of day to reveal dream meaning.
Each dream is a journey to the unknown with an implicit personal message. Although it is the content of the episode that determines our emotional state, dreaming in black and white indicates a possible lack of enthusiasm or nostalgia for the past. These dreams are an invitation to live with more intensity and enjoy the present.
