Speaking in dreams reflects the need to communicate. If what you say does not make any sense, it means that you are trying to attract others’ attention, which is evidence of an emotional dissatisfaction. On the contrary, speaking with logic and common sense is a way of organizing thoughts. To dream that you communicate in a foreign language that you don’t know could suggest a need to analyze your projects from different points of view. Finally, if you don’t understand the words you hear, the dream is manifesting your fear of rumors. (See mouth and tongue ) To talk to animals in dreams is an omen of suffering; with other people, of risk and danger; with superiors, of happiness; with enemies, of health. To speak to your mother is a good omen. If you dream that someone speaks badly of you, this predicts beneficial projects.

Do animals dream?

Research conducted by various scientists show that animals do experience dream while sleeping. They also experience similar sleep stages like human beings - REM and Non-REM. If you have noticed a dog sleep, it might sometimes wag its tail, this indicates some response to its dream. A study was conducted in a cat by removing a part of the brain stem, which will not prevent it from reacting to the dream during REM. It was noted in some cats they were aggressively chasing mice as in reality.

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.
