Poet William Blake stated that "progress is the punishment of God." The life' path is a personal experience that often involves gradual loss of childhood's values. Age-related dreams can have several different meanings. Dreaming that you are younger indicates the need to review the past. Some aspect of childhood or adolescence that has not been settled is emerging now. However, if you dream of being older than you currently are, you may be anticipating events. In this case, the unconscious is reminding you to live day by day, intensely, without thinking too much about the future. Dreaming of senior citizens reports good luck. If you grow older, a failure is announced. If it's a friend who gets older the dream tells that she will let you down. Dreaming of young people, however, is a sign of family reconciliation and favorable time for launching new companies. Dreaming that you become young again predicts you will make great efforts to regain lost opportunities. If a mother dreams that her adult child is a baby again the dream announces healing of old wounds and revival of youthful hopes.

Types of sleep
There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
