Port

Shows your desire to escape, to run away from reality, because it represents the beginning or end of a journey. These desires do not involve a genuine desire for change. It also symbolizes security. You may be living a stormy stage and need a little calm and shelter. Resting will help you regain strength and to face things again with renewed energy so everything will “arrive safely.” In the event that, besides the image of the port, you undertake a boat trip, the meaning of the dream is the opposite to the one mentioned above. Now it seems that you are beginning a different stage in your life. Entering a port heralds the arrival of a safety period. But, if you leave the port, one of your friendships will be broken.

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.

Body reactions during sleep

Most of us must have experienced hallucinations or night mares. When we experience such dreams we are unable to move or react. This stage is referred to as sleep paralysis. This type of dream occurs in between wakefulness and REM. As it occurs during the REM stage, it causes complete muscle weakness preventing the individual reacting to the dreams.
