What is the meaning behind dreams - Dream meaning

There are a few different theories about what they mean or if they mean anything. Well, more than a few.

My approach to interpreting is looking at it from multiple ways. It depends on how the dream feels. Here are four options that sometimes seem to fit for me personally.

  1. Dreams are your mind's way of working through memories and storing them.
  2. Dreams are stories put together from bits of unfinished thoughts or little things that didn't make sense. Your mind strings them together into a narrative that makes sense, in its own way. This and #1 are nearly the same thing and could be combined.
  3. Dreams are expressions of your subconscious thoughts through symbolism.
  4. Dreams are a way of trying out different scenarios, things that you wish would happen, things that you're afraid will happen, or things that are likely to happen tomorrow.
  5. If I could add a fifth option that many People believe, that I'm unsure of myself, it's that dreams are messages, from a deity, from spirits, or even from other people. That dreams are supernatural.
Now some dreams you can see right away "where they came from". You see a character you watched on TV the night before eating what you had for lunch, and it seems to back up the first theory.

#3 is really tricky to prove and what things symbolize varies widely to different people. Some People when they interpret dreams take certain things to always mean the same thing. "Hippos are good luck", "if you dream of falling you Fear losing control". Other People will tell you to look at what the thing means to you. You dream of cats. How did it make you feel? When you're awake do you like cats? etc. Personally I think unless the implication of your actions or the objects in the dream comes to you right away, it's better not to speculate further because you could get the wrong ideas about yourself and what you need to do next.

The more I try to write this answer the more I come up with other possibilities that are popular, including that dreams mean nothing and are completely random. So I'll leave it here, as incoherent as it is.

tl;dr--It's up to you.
