One of the strangest aspects to life is dreaming and we really don’t talk much about it. When your body recharges in your sleep are dreams just a screensaver or do they carry some significant meaning for you? Maybe these symbols you see in your dream are yearning for your acknowledgment and have representation for some actions required from your awakened consciousness.
Where Do Dreams Come From?
When we are awake or conscious our minds are only working at a very small amount of their true capability. Our subconscious is by far the most dominant part of our minds and is where dreams are manifested. The common reasons you dream include emotional, mental, biological, spiritual or physical which introduce more variables when interpreting your own dreams. Your subconscious mind is trying to figure out what you’re doing in your conscious waking hours of short-term memory and where it fits into your neural network. Some of it will be written into stories that you’ll experience while in deep REM sleep and some of it will simply be discarded. Dreams are simply manifested by your sub-conscience mind while you sleep from the input received from the conscience mind.
Why Do We Dream?
It is necessary for humans to dream as it helps them deal with information overload; often triggering emotions to help vent in your sleep. As your body recharges dreams help by more deeply processing your emotions and lingering thoughts. Your subconscious mind is always in the background recording all of your egoic thoughts, desires, goals and what you do. The truth is the majority of that dark space behind your eyes knows more about you than you do. Every day you wake up your subconscious has lessons it’s trying to help you with but can only speak in the language of signs and symbols. When we dream it helps release imagery, sort thoughts, organize information, refresh and engage in deeper self discovery.
Dreams are not as mystical as most people think, they are trying to help you be better and assist in dealing with your emotional bottlenecks. Dreaming is a way in which a human processes or arranges memories. In a sense dreams are talking to you in that they want you to find something deeper about yourself. They will show you new ways of fulfillment and how to get more out of your life.
Achieve More in Life When you Understand Your Dreams
In order to achieve goals in life the conscious and subconscious mind must align and agree. If they do not you will likely experience an internal resistance while trying to achieve your goals. When the two sides agree you are more likely to achieve your goals by easily manifesting your goal requirements. Your conscious and subconscious work together on the same team when they agree providing a higher likelihood of accomplishing anything to set out to do.
How To Find The Meaning In Dreams
Deep REM sleep is where your most deeply vivid and animated dreams are manifested by your subconscious. On average you will experience approximately 25% of REM sleep every night. That means 8 hours of sleep would yield you 2 hours of REM dreams. These are the dreams that you are most likely to remember, each with its own important message for you. The best way to begin analyzing your dreams is to write down what you can remember the minute you awaken. Gaining actionable insights from your own dream analysis will require knowledge of signs and symbols because that is the language dreams speak in.
