Dreaming is a necessary process that can guard against developing psychological problems. Famed psychiatrist Sigmund Freud called dreams "the royal road to the unconscious," but his ideas about dreams and their relationship to the unconscious mind are controversial. He believed that the strange imagery in dreams could be explained as symbols representing specific conflicts in our lives, often of a sexual nature. Not all experts accept Freud's theory that wish fulfillment is one of the major functions of dreaming. But there is consensus that people do often work out issues in their dreams that are causing them distress in the waking world.

Dreams also are important because they help the brain process and integrate the massive jumble of sensory information we soak up every day. The subconscious mind sorts through and organizes all this data, and dreams use it to aid us in the learning process and in solving problems that may have stumped us while we were awake.

Many of us have seen stories about a person who had a dream about their plane crashing, deciding not to fly, then learning that the plane crashed. However, dreams that give us information about future events are not common. These premonition dreams, also called precognitive dreams, are not given much regard in the scientific community, but people continue to report them. A psychologist named Doctor Hearne is a leading dream researcher and hypnotherapist who has done a lot of research into premonition and lucid dreaming. Most premonition dreams are negative with a death of a family member or friend being common examples. Researchers like Dr. Hearne are not clear about why these dreams usually foretell bad news, but one idea is that impending tragedy is more compelling than good news so your subconscious mind is more likely to bring it to your attention.
