Frequently Asked Questions

1. The Internet has endless lists of dream symbols and their meaning. How do I know which is true?

Fact is, there isn’t a single code that has proved to be effective in interpreting dream symbols. Interpretation of symbols can differ and no interpretation can be called accurate.

2. Is it bad to have wet dreams?

What happens when you dream is beyond your control. If it bothers you, you can consult a psychologist.

3. Can dreams predict the future?

There is no scientific evidence to back the claim that dreams can predict the future. But there have been isolated instances when people have reported dreaming of future events that actually came true.

4. Are dreams influenced by stress overload and anxieties?

‘Continuity hypothesis’ explains that dreams often reflect our concerns and preoccupations. It is quite probable that our dreams portray what’s going on in our mind.
