The falcon and the sparrow hawk symbolize spiritual, moral, or intellectual elevation. In Ancient Egypt, this bird was the emblem of the human soul. However, in the Middle Ages, the falcon became an allegory of the sinner's guilty conscience. Not in vain, images have been found from this time period of falcons tearing up hares, that is to say, attacking animals that symbolized fecundity but also lechery. In the improbable case that you dream of this image (of a falcon attacking a rabbit), you can interpret the scene as a symbol of the victory of self-control over lewd desires. If, on the contrary, the falcon is flying, it means that you could receive an assignment for a project of great importance that you should not let escape. In this case, your ambition will be put to the test. Given that the falcon represents moral elevation, you should go above certain interests in the assumption that you fervently desire power. Success is not at odds with elevated values.

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.
