Does anybody know anything about dream analysis. I have vivid dreams and they bother me.

With out knowing what your dreams are about, and in what way they bother you, there is no way to help you . You need to look for a counselor that is well versed in analytical psychotherapy. Dreams can be accurate renderings of something to which one may need to pay attention and take as seriously as a conscious event.Look for a helper that has a long history of working on this subject.

There is a vast literature on dream analysis. Sigmund freud did a lot of work on this subject and many psychologists have since added to this store house of knowledge.Dreams are obviously normal and routine. But if they are "bothering" you,seek some help.If you do not have much money and more work,try to ignore them.

I hate to point out the seemingly obvious, but are you on any prescription drugs, or do you eat late at night (cheese, red wine in particular)?

There are different theories about dream content. A lot of physiological psychologists believe that dreams are the attempt of the conscious mind to make sense of random neural firings that occur while in deep sleep. They cite the fact that drams often contain information relevant to what you were thinking of before you go into the 2nd or 3rd stage of sleep, and also dreams often contain information that is relevent to memory triggers that occurred during the day.

As Dilly mentioned, nutrition is very influential in terms of dream content. Stimulants like caffiene and exercise can disturb dreams (exercise at least 3 hours before you try to go to sleep, stop drinking caffiene at least 4-5 hours before trying to sleep). Heavy foods, meat, cheese, alcohol (a very BAD substance when it comes to sleep - intially puts you into stage 3 sleep but never into REM!). Excess sugar. Chocolate.

Why not check out some website on dream analysis. There are many out there. Go to google.com (my favorite search engine!) and type in keywords...
