Ash

Once the fire is out, ashes remain. Perhaps, you feel that all the good deeds in your lives have already taken place and there is nothing left. On the other hand, you can be too anchored to the past or overthinking something that is already over. Ashes can represent failure of a relationship or a business. Also, they are often identified with death and dissolution of bodies. Everything that comes into contact with the fire of life is submitted to ashes. For the Hindu tradition, ashes are a symbol of indestructibility. In a dream, they portray the irreducible part of yourself. Ashes predict disadvantages: bad harvests, unsuccessful businesses, and children who cause problems to their parents. According to gypsies, however, this dream means that you will finally stop lamenting opportunities lost a while ago. In many tribal societies ashes are also a symbol of fertility and good fortune. In England and the United States, in fact, it is believed they protect against evil spirits.

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.
