The birch is considered a sacred tree in eastern Europe and central Asia. In ancient times, it was believed to ward off malign spirits. Furthermore, it was used as a channel of communication between gods and humans. When it appears in dreams, the birch represents the beginning of important projects. The shape of its trunk - straight or twisted - could indicate whether or not those impending deals are on the right track.

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.
