Dreams: We have 2 types of dreams. Day residue dreams are the most common and help us blow off steam/frustration, etc. Like a pressure cooker venting. Recurring or very vivid or emotional dreams may be a message for us, e.g., slow down, make a decision, be careful w/that person. We all have our own dream dictionary w/in. Dream groups are interesting and enjoyable if you can find one.
