Recurring theme to dreams
« on: October 18, 2011, 02:58:30 pm »
I keep having these dreams and I have no idea what they mean, they all center around a friend who has lost two children.

Background - I worked in the same place as my mum, she became friends with a man who I then became friends with as well (he eventually became my boss), me and mum would have him and his wife around for coffee and what have you every so often. I wasn't particularly close to them but I did care about them. His wife became pregnant, which was wonderful, the birth went well but it soon became apparent something wasn't right with the baby - I can't remember the name of the illness but she died just under a year old.

A couple of years later they had another child, a beautiful baby girl who is as healthy as they come! She's lovely :D

I moved away and haven't had any contact with them since (like I said, we weren't close). A year or so after their second child was born they had a baby boy who sadly died of SIDs at just a few days old.

I can't even imagine the heartbreak that they must have gone through. I was in tears when I found out but as awful as it sounds, this was months and months ago now - I havent thought about them since. They just don't (usually) cross my mind.

The last two weeks I have had three dreams about the baby boy that they lost and I have no idea why. It's really upsetting me :( I don't really remember the dreams, just that they are about or include the baby that died.

If anyone could shed some light on why I'm dreaming about this boy and family I would really appreciate it :)

You could just be dreaming about it because it's upsetting and on your mind. Sigmund Freud's theory of dream was basically that they represented unconscious desires, thoughts and motivations.

Another theory, by J. Allan Hobson and Robert McClarley, says that different parts of the brain are going off firing signals that that get strung together in a story to help interpretation the information.

There's lots of theories behind dreams. do you feel they have something to do with spirituality?
