As a glow in the dark, the star is a symbol of the spirit. This represents an option only reserved to the chosen one (in the rites of Mithras, for example, it is stated: “I am a star that shines and walks with you from the deepest”). The pentagram is the most common. In the Egyptian hieroglyphic system it means “elevation to the beginning.” Consequently, dreaming of stars symbolizes ideals and hopes. However, if you imagine them falling rapidly or if they are very pale, it rather means a future misfortune. Formerly it was believed that when a person died, she or he would become a star. Dreaming of stars, therefore, implies that wise spirits guide the sleeper.

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.
