The herd is an image that denotes, without place for doubts, insecurity and lack of personality, the reason that you are searching insistently for integration with a group. The dream may be censuring you for going along with the herd, without thinking and acting for yourself. This dream also means that you desire to leave the protective environment that you usually inhabit, despite the possibility that if gives you the fear that it may result in loneliness. However, you have to learn to trust in yourself. A herd of animals is generally a good omen. If they are buffalo, it is evidence of your great potential; elephants, that you should act sensibly when facing new challenges; and felines, that a time of strong emotions is near. In the case that the sight of the herd frightens you, you must be careful with people around you: an unfavorable alliance could emerge between them. To overflow: a container that overflows could be interpreted in various ways. On one hand, it is a sign of abundance; on the other, it reflects overwhelming emotions and lack of control. In this case, the meaning of the dream is related with that of CRYING and RELIEF. It is possible that the dreamer has reached the limit of their emotional resistance.

Do blind people dream?
Dreams in blind people depend on the nature of their blindness. Individuals who have born blind will not have visual dreams instead they have night mares, most of them revolving around their challenges faced during the day. They experience dream through their sensory inputs like touch, smell, noise and emotions. People who were blinded after birth can experience visual dreams based on the visions or images that they have seen.
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.
