Even with our advanced technologies, the human brain remains an enigma.  Countless phenomena are still unexplained, and one of these are dreams.  Dreams are one of life's most fascinating and intriguing mysteries.  The stuff of legends, myth, and scriptures.  There are different beliefs as to what dreams are. Some say they are voices from beyond and others say it is your own soul communicating with you.  Specialists see it as one's own subconscious mind aiding his conscious mind to go through the events of his life.  Dreams are vehicles from which your mind communicates ideas, warnings and health issues. Dreams are very efficient.  They can address multiple issues all in one story line.  They may warn you of health dangers, predict the future, point out personality flaws, or solve a current problem.  I have listed some of the most common characters in our dreams and their meanings according to dream specialists.  Just bear in mind that your own perceptions of your dreams always take precedence over any definition.

1) animals - They symbolize our own traits, good and bad.  When you see an animal in your dreams, it usually represents a bad trait as it is far easier for us to accept and watch an animal doing something negative than to take credit for it ourselves.

2) automobiles/vehicles - It usually reflects the direction you are heading in life or your body.  The condition of the vehicle might give you an idea of your health.  Therefore, flying a jet in the sky with a song in your heart would be a rather good dream.  =)

3) children - A child represents something new, different, and joyous.  A child may represent a new phase in your life or a new project as well.  It may also symbolize innocent parts of one's self.

4) clothing - When you get into different moods, you tend to choose different clothing.  For this reason, clothing symbolizes your mood or state of mind.  It may also reflect your attitude. Take note of what you or the other people in your dream are wearing and you would get more clues as to the dream's meaning.

5) death - Any dream that refers to dying or funerals pertain to change.  The change is usually dramatic and major or can be changes in your life attitude and emotional balance. It may also symbolize confronting fear and threat.

6) buildings - These usually points directly to a specific area of your life.  Dreaming of being in an office may pertain to your working environment.  A bathroom may point to your general health and hygiene and the kitchen in your eating and nutrition.  To dream of your childhood house however, tends to be a reflection of your life today.  A dream of chaos in your childhood can indicate great disturbances in your life either now, or soon.

7) people - People in dreams most commonly reflect important aspects of your personality.  These traits are the ones you should enhance or eliminate.  You should ask yourself what traits you like and dislike in the characters you dream about and look for those traits in yourself.  You might be surprised to find a match up.
