There is a common and popular myth that dreams possess some sort of symbolic meaning behind them. You or some one you know may keep a dream journal to keep track and analyze dreams. Is there any serious truth to this or is it simply weirdo hippy nonsense? From a little research you will find that there is some truth to all this. Many very highly acclaimed psychologists and scientists have found results and meanings behind dreams.

Two of the more prominent people who have talked about meanings behind dreams are Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. These 2 individuals are highly respected in the psychology world.
