Although it may seem surprising, the vulture is a symbol that, throughout history, has always had positive connotations. Not surprisingly, many people believed that because its diet is carrion, the vulture had a special relationship with Mother Nature. Thus, the Parses—followers of Zoroaster—expose their dead on the top of tall towers so the vultures devour them in order to facilitate their rebirth. Likewise, in India the vulture appears as a symbol of protective spiritual forces that substitute parents: an emblem of devotion and spiritual advice. In Western culture, this bird has, however, negative connotations. The presence of vultures in dreams indicates the possibility that some people are waiting for a mistake to take advantage of the situation. For the gypsies, oneiric vultures warn you against corrupt people around you.

Dreams reflect our actions that we have already performed. Most of us have dreams activities relating to our past life. One of the common dreams that every individual has gone through is their experiences during the school life, where you would get images of teacher hitting you, making you feel numb and shameful.
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.
