Most of us dream on average one to two hours each night, having a variety of dreams. Most dreams are completely forgotten and some people, therefore, claim not to dream ever. Researchers have found that if people are awakened directly by a rapid eye movement (REM) sleep episode, many can recall their dreams fairly accurately. A person awakened during REM sleep will almost always report a dream, often in great detail. These reports indicate that people are conscious during sleep, even though they may not always remember the experience.

This dream is said to be a “red flag from your subconscious.” Psychologists believe this dream is common in people who are having a major life problem with work, relationships, or elsewhere.

This dream is not necessarily a nightmare, according to a dream psychologist. Rather, he repeatedly states that it is a dream meant to encourage a person to embark on a new endeavor or fresh start.

It is also believed that if a person you dreamed about is not someone you admire or if you are a person who is not too preoccupied with famous persons at all, then this dream might represent your will to be successful at something but your big chance hasn’t come yet.
Water generally means purity and cleansing. Seeing a waterfall in your dream means getting rid of old problems and troubles as well as opening the door to new opportunities. There is a slight difference, depending on whether the waterfall is short or long and whether it is located on a beach or in a dark forest.
Dreams are messages from the subconscious mind, or from the inner self to the outer self. They tell us about waking life and give us messages or feedback on how we are thinking or what we are doing.
