Also Ayurveda states that dreams contains strong indications about the underlying causes of disease or imbalances. Also it is believed, dreams are the story of unfulfilled wishes. Whatever you keep on thinking and think before going to bed will appear in your dream story. Thus by studying the dreams on can understand the inborn energy of a person.
