If I told you that the questions that haunt you for days together, the anxiety you feel towards certain situations, the life-changing decisions you are about to make , waiting for a little guidance and everything could be found in your dreams last night, you’d probably brand me as a crazy person and recommend me a psychiatrist! But I challenge you to read this post and I bet you’d have a life-changing view !
Did you know that , on average you can dream anywhere from one or two hours every night and within 5 minutes of waking half of your dream is forgotten. Within 10, 90% is gone!
Many of us claim that we don’t dream often or go to the extent of saying that we don’t get dreams at all! But that certainly is not true.. In fact, dreams hold a more important part in our life than what meets the eyes.
Dreams hold a very important place in the discovery of the subconscious and it’s powers.Moreover,dreams are the subconscious’s natural way of communicating and telling our conscious mind the things we most often miss in our waking life. Some dreams serve as premonitions and some are just a reflection of the emotions we feel in our waking life.
Most of us are blissfully unaware of the power of our dreams.
Did you know that what you dream of has little to no meaning. Your dreams are not what you interpret it to be.
Why do we dream?
The human brain is still quite a mystery taunting us by posing questions we still can’t discover answers to! Though people can’t seem to come to a conclusion on why we dream, there seems to be no shortage of explanations and numerous theories, all backed up with scientific reasons , of course !
The most common and the widely accepted theory is that the brain sifts through memories and collects important information which we are bombarded with in the day-time and rejects some others. While, this explains why we dream of daily trivial issues such as work place pressure , but still there are our unanswered dreams which we quite often label as weird!
The truth be told, we still have a lot to discover in areas concerning our grey matters. Until we know our brains, we just can’t conclude on why we dream and importantly , are dreams really important?
Dreams And Their Meanings
While, most of our dreams may seem pretty straight forward, we have all gone through dreams which doesn’t make sense at all. Little do we know that those dreams often hold symbols that can lead you to answering some of your long yearned questions.
Being chased by someone in you dreams is very common and did you know that your subconscious is asking you to face a situation or a person rather than running away from it? The next time you have this dream, analyse what you are running from in reality and face it. These dreams occur concurrently if the problem is not solved!
How To Track Your Dreams
Keeping a dream journal is an important part of lucid dreaming. Fortunately, it’s easy and fun – and ultimately improves your awareness of the dream state, making it easier to wake up in dreams.
You don’t need to have a artsy book to write in. Just grab a book and keep it write next to your bedside and when you wake up from your dream, write in it.
An important point to note is , to just keep writing what comes to mind. It may not sound logical at times, but just write it down.The details which you think are not important are indeed important. Things like the landscape you were in , the colour of your dress, the surroundings , everything matters and that’s why you should write down whatever you remember.It doesn’t matter if your grammar or language is bad. The main thing is to jot everything down.
How To Find “The Hidden Meaning Of Your Dreams”
