Invitation

To receive an invitation reveals a desire to start new friendships. At the same time, it also indicates that you like to follow social norms of courtesy and diplomacy. It is important to pay attention to this dream. It could be the announcement of an important commitment, either emotional or professional. On the other side, having a guest manifests the hidden part of your personality that you want to integrate into your conscious life. In the same way, a guest can represent new challenges and interests. Or, on the contrary, the dream may be calling your attention to certain circumstances that are temporary, like guests. These come, are entertaining, and then they go. According to a saying by I Ching, when one is a stranger, one cannot be brusque or tyrannical. One should, however, be careful and reserved. This way, one protects oneself from evil. This may be the advice your dream is giving you.

Longevity

The amount of sleep that a person gets will be associated with his or her lifespan. However, the causes or effects are still vague, as illnesses can also affect a person's sleeping pattern. According to a 2010 study, women under the age of 50 to 79 only get less than five hours of sleep every night, which makes them a subject for death occurrences.

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.
