What Your Dreams Mean To You | A Must Read

Dreams can reveal our subconscious, or be completely random. We average between 3 to 7 dreams every night. We dream for up to 2 / 3 hours each night, and 90% of the dream is lost the first minute we wake up. Did you know that you can’t dream and snore at the same time? Well, you do now...

Here are some more interesting facts about your dreams:

1- There are no strangers in our dreams 

The people in our dreams we have met or seen sometime before, even if we don’t remember. It could be someone who didn't make a big impact in our life, maybe the person who rang up your order or delivered a pizza. People we meet become our cast of characters that remain in our subconscious and come back in our dreams.

2- REM sleep disorder 

This is the stage of sleep in which dreaming occurs, there is paralysis of the voluntary muscles, when waking from a bad dream it takes a few minutes for our muscles to respond.

3- Symbolism and Emotions 

The most common emotion in dreams is anxiety. Negative emotions in dreams are more common than positive. Every dream is symbolic, even the most random ones have symbolism behind it.

4- Lucid dreams 

Represent an alternate reality, you are aware that you are dreaming even though you are still asleep, the best part about these dreams you can sometimes control them.

5- Erotic dreams 

These are common and can lead to orgasms in men and women.

-Men sometimes get erections during REM sleep, whether or not they are having an erotic dream.

-The female body is stimulated by erotic dreams

6- Male and female dreams 

-Men: dream more about strangers, violence, sexual activity, achievement, and outdoor events

-Women: slightly longer dreams that feature more characters, more nightmares, and are more likely to dream about their children, family, or household activities

7- Precognitive dreams 

Dreams that give you the sensation of predicting the future, what they actually do is express our innermost hopes and fears based on subconscious information that we may or may not be repressing.

8- Violent dreams 

These dreams are known for causing people to act out their dreams, sometimes with violent actions like kicks and screams. Studies show violent dreams may be an early sign of some brain disorders including Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

I have lots of precognitive and lucid dreams all the time , as a 4 year old I had a near death experience in which I was buried in a tunnel for 3/4 hr , I am 48 this year, I have always believed that the many many people that are randomly in my dreams who I do not know or recognise I thought I had met them during my experience as it is very vivid and deep, but I know after watching my father from the clouds giving me cpr where it took 7 breaths to bring me back to my body that the trsnsition between the sky and my body was so draining i slept for 3 days which is why i beleve in that time i met those poeple, theres a room that I call the transition room where those who are ready to pass over gather before the great transition I go there quite frequently...
