Understanding the colors in your dreams

I'm sure you've heard it said that we dream in black and white.  NOT TRUE! That is a myth that seems to have been born in the 50s, the age of black and white television.  The truth is, we all dream in color just as we see in color.  Sometimes a dream can be in shades of grey or the colors can be muted.

That frustrating filthy bathroom dream

Does your dream ever take place in a bathroom? The bathroom is actually a pretty common dream setting for women. Here's why. The bathroom is the place of relief.  It is where we can refresh ourselves by washing away the dirt and grime of the day and relieve ourselves by letting out that which our body has processed and no longer needs.  Yes, the bathroom is the place where we tend to go “Aahhhh.” ...
