I wouldn't know. I sleep an hour or two every few days with the help of sleeping pills, and that's it. My dreams are all nightmares of what I experiance when I'm awake.
My dreams are all over the place and are all quite vivid. Some are very sweet moments, often from the past; some are amazing like the ability to fly ... A few are terrifying scenes that baffle me.
That's when your subconscious mind comes out to play. (My subconscious is kinda crazy but my waking mind is fairly normal. Well, as normal as Hippy's anyway.)
Old memories that I can never escape. Old feelings that keep f'ing with me.
Most dreams are, indeed, the subconscious re-working and processing the events of the day, or its own contents...
However occasionally an archetypal dream will come through, of the quality studied by Carl Jung and others. And those are worth paying attention to, and you can learn to recognize them.
Things that I wish could happen in reality!!!
Dreams are really boring. Most of my working years were in HR. More often than not, my dreams consist of me explaining regulations to people. I am so pathetic!.
