Often relatives symbolize facets of your personality or personal characteristics of which you may or may not be proud. The interpretation of this dream will vary if it is close family members or distant relatives, and based on what they symbolize to you. It may deal with a family reunion due to some event (like a wedding or a funeral), in which you feel strongly sheltered and protected, or, on the contrary, surrounded by distant family member in whom you can identify many defects you detest.

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.
