Dreaming of a balloon promotes reflection on the ideas of wholeness, freedom, and lightness. So you must meditate and contemplate calmly what concerns you from a broader view. In the case of a childish balloon that escapes from the dreamer's hands, perhaps in real life you are letting good ideas escape. However, if you let it escape while admiring its flight it indicates intellectual progress. Now, if the balloon bursts it denotes superfluous thoughts. The vision of the balloon predicts short trips, but can also reveal an excessive lust for power. Dreaming of getting up in the air in a balloon, on the other hand, indicates that you are going through a good time but you must not lose sight of everyday reality. Dreaming of a balloon cruise promises an unfortunate trip. Moreover, it can also mean that you see everything from a higher perspective. The condition of the landscape below the balloon can tell you a lot about your life and your circumstances.
One of the reasons why people always get involved in road accidents is that, they are tired while driving, or that they lack sleep. Many people do not realize that their performance can be highly affected by having not enough sleep. Sleep deprivation can affect reaction as well as decision making, not to mention that it could make a person unable to drive well. It goes the same with drunk driving.
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.
