Dreams are a very strange and often powerful phenomena. They can shake you out of your slumber and they can even make you cry. Dreams can be so vivid and lucid it can make you wonder if you were even dreaming at all. They can feel extremely real because of the emotional content they so very often contain.
This infographic exhibits 12 of the most common themes we all share about our dreams. Just before waking this morning, I dreamt my friends and I were climbing an enormous rock-like tree. They all went one way; a safe way. I ended up so far away from them on my own path and so high in the air and tired that I felt frozen with paralysis. After contemplating the reality of falling, I conquered the fear and fatigue I had and made my way to my friends.
Though this dream would appear to be random, once analyzed, I was afraid of being alone after my own journey. We are all able and ready to break out. We must forge our own paths. Real friends will be there waiting for you at the end of your climb. When you let it, failure can always occur. Falling, failing is many times our motivation to understand what is most important.
Though my imagination was hard at work, the meaning of my dream was clear as day. This tree of life I climbed; we can all relate to. The way we climb it is up to us. [via]
