The Meaning of My Dream

I seldom dream and when I do, most of the time I can not recall what it is. Last night, I dreamed something weird about my family and until now it is clear in my mind. In my dream my family lives in a squatters area and badly needed my help. I asked them to come and live with us. I told them that it will be fine with Rhonnel and that he would understand.Just this morning, my brother called and asked if I can help them. It seems like my dream is an advance message. I wonder how it can be. Is it just a coincidence?

Based on research, dreams are often distorted reflections of our daily lives. Some researchers suggest that dreams serve no real purpose, while other believe that dreaming is vital to mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Why do we dream? There are different explanations on why we dream based on dream theories. Based on Freud’s theory, we dream to carry our unconscious desires and wishes. Based on Jung’s theory, dreams carry meaning and that the dreamer interpret random signals from the brain and body during sleep. Based on Evan’s Theory, we dream to consolidate and process information gathered during the day. Based on Cayse’s Theory, dreams are our body’s means of building up of the mental, spiritual and physical well-being.

Maybe Freud’s Theory is the best to apply on my dream. I am not in touch with my family for 2 weeks. I am wondering how they are and if they need my help. I have this desire to help them and so I dreamed about it. But how about my dream as an advance message? Can our dream foretell the future? Maybe not, maybe yes, but some experts say it can happen.
