What are dreams?

I have had dreams that are weird and are confusing. I keep thinking what they mean.

    Dreams are feelings or emotions we have stored up in our subconscious mind.  When we dream at night, the images of those emotions are allowed to roam free through our minds, and that is what causes us to have pictures (dreams) when we sleep.  Also many times we refuse to admit things to ourselves, and kind of sweep everything we fear or don't like "under the rug" as the saying goes.  But when we sleep, those little odd thoughts or feelings are allowed free range and this is where nightmares come from.
