Dreams are an individual as we are but there are some common dream themes. What do you dream about the most?

I dream about school too. Usually about college and failing most of my courses because I am so tired I can't even make it to class. At age 45, you would think I wouldn't be dreaming about that kind of thing anymore.

Connie, dreaming about our jobs or our workday is pretty common. We find a lot of solutions during our dream state where we can play around with all possibilities.

In Jeanne's case, when she dreams about college, this symbol is more a life metaphor. For years, I dreamed about going to school. In one recurring dream, I was not going to pass high school because I skipped social studies. The counselor gave me a chance to "make up" this course during summer so I could graduate.

In real life, I never had academic problems in school. This was not a literal dream message. HOWEVER, in my waking life at the time, I was withdrawing from socializing with friends and other social groups. I wanted to cocoon and be a hermit when I knew that in order to fulfill one of my life purpose's I had to be among people. The dream was telling me that I would not advance spiritually--that I would not graduate to the next level--until I learned my social studies (became more social).

In later dreams, I was late to college classes. Running up the stairs, but late.

Similarly, Jeanne, your college dreams tell you that you might not "get" or "pass" your higher life lessons because you are too tired (from distracting activities) and aren't attending your life classes!

You didn't ask but here is some unsolicited advice or what I call Dream Therapy: Reflect on your current life and see what is tiring you out so much. Be sure that your best energy is spent on more spiritual matters rather than physical activities. This doesn't mean you have to switch careers or anything drastic. Just be sure to work in some meditation, reading, gentle exercise, journaling or attending groups that encourage higher thoughts, deep introspection and soul growth. Rest. Be still. You are still "doing something" when you are at rest.

Whatever career or job you may have, be sure to apply all of the wisdom you have gained thusfar in life.

We misunderstand sometimes and think that a spiritual person only thinks about spiritual matters. But a spiritual life is also a physical life here on earth. We are to learn in spirit but apply in the physical.

You are a wise woman. Just apply what you have learned so far and be open to learning more.

Keep dreaming and your dreams will lead you to the next step.

Life is a school.

Since I teach and counsel people as part of my 'work', I find that I commonly continue this on the dream plane. I also often receive teachings there myself from teachers I have or am studying spiritually with. So in the poll I marked this as 'exploring other worlds' and 'receiving warnings and guidance' but really I feel like it's another category...actually I feel like we continue a lot of communications from our daily lives on a deeper level in our dreams too, which is kind of dreaming about waking life, but really is different...like if you need to say something to someone in your daily life, but are having a hard time, you may do it in a dream, and I believe it can be a valid communication.

Great poll!

Thanks for your great insight, Lisa! I agree!

There was a NOVA program called, "What are dreams?" and I highly recommend it if you can get it on Netflix.

Scientists are coming to a new understanding about the important role dreams play in human life. In fact, if a person cannot dream (not those who merely cannot recall them) he suffers in his waking life.

Completely fascinating. It really is like living a life in a different dimension.
