I always knew that dreams can have meanings or messages or even premonitions in them. I know most dreams are just dreams, but every now and then some dreams do have meanings or messages or premonitions. I have a LOT of dreams that come true. Many dreams I had actually did come true already. Things I dreamed as a kid came true in my adult life.

Pagans do but it's really up to them. It's real to them because they believe it's real. This is so hard to explain. But this is also an account of people making stuff up. When someone says they had a dream that they really never had. I believe dreams have something to do with recalling memories. A trick of the mind at best.

I fall into this category. Once in a blue moon, I'd recall a memory where come to find out, I was actually reminiscing a dream.
