Hat

As they serve to cover the head, hats are a symbol of what is harbored (or thought). In the same fashion, it references the role that you play in life. And, if you change it, it indicates a change in attitude or direction in your existence. It is possible that you are turning towards the assumption of more responsibilities at work, or be searching for a new work position. According to Freud, hats (and gloves) represent the female genitals due to its ability to surround the body. In contrast, Jung thought that the hat, relative to the crown, gives people a determined expression. So, the type of hat changes the meaning of the dream. A tophat manifests that you want health or that you are too pretentious; a baseball hat that you want to be younger or more athletic; a straw hat, that you hope to adopt a more natural and unworried attitude; a military cap indicates an excess in authoritarianism; lastly, if you wear a ridiculous hat, it is a warning of the grotesque posture that you maintain in the situation represented in the dream. In general, imagining that you are wearing a hat shows a lack of security in what you do and a fear of being judged by others. The predecessors of Freud believed that if a woman wears a manÓł hat, she wants to maintain relations with the owner of the hat. And, if you dream that you lose the hat, you will soon be married.

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.
