Human mind is an uncanny vessel that houses infinite things, some of which we consciously understand, and some, which lie engraved deep in our subconscious mind. It is always a subject without much explanation as to why we see a certain dream and what further adds to the weirdness is when we see a similar dream more than once, and yet we remain helplessly clueless about its interpretations.

However, it is not that the world of dreams and visions is a completely dark tunnel. Sometimes, fortunately, we do have some explanations and meanings for the kind of dreams we see, in our everyday lives.
