The bank represents your pool of resources, wealth, and accumulated energy. Therefore, dreaming that you save money or store jewelry or valuables in a bank reflects a clear need for safety and security to address the problems of life. On the contrary, if you withdraw money it means you will have enough strength and confidence to face such problems. Banks, especially the safes, represent your inner warehouse, your source of psychological potential. The unconscious is telling you to use your skill and energy reserves: your talent. Also, the dream can have a more literal meaning: you do not need to worry about the safety of your assets, as they are well kept. If you dream of robbing a bank maybe you are making too much effort in something; there is risk of failure due to lack of resources. If in the dream you deposit money in the bank you will soon receive financial support. If, however, you see empty boxes, it predicts financial doom.
Some people can recognize dreams while sleeping; this type of dream is called lucid dreaming. Most of the people would have experienced this type of dream atleast once in their life. You can actually control these dreams. One of the popular dreams that most of us experience is as flying in the sky; you can try lucid dream by imagining your house beside the flying aid.
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.
