Grandparents represent experience, the past, wisdom learned with time. Therefore, they symbolize social norms that are learned. When they are in dreams that cause pleasant feelings, it suggests you have to seek serenity and calm before getting carried away, paying attention to past events. If these images, on the contrary, are not very comforting, the interpretation is the opposite. You are too anchored in the past and that limits your possibilities for personal development. All traditions agree that elders are a symbol of certainty and wisdom.

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.
