What are dreams? Why do we have dreams?
How do dreams help you in your life?
What are Dreams?
It’s that thing we all have but think there is nothing important about it.
And in a sense, the nature of dreams makes it so uncertain that we think it has nothing to do with us.
But on a deeper level, we know dreams are a part of our reality.
When you dream, you are experiencing an unconscious world, an alternate reality.
Dream as Reality
Now this might seem strange, if it’s “reality”, how come everything is happening all at once?
Welcome to true reality, where whatever you think you instantly manifest…where the subtle energy are so fluid that your thoughts alone can bring you down to nightmares or ascend to blissful scenery.
In our dreams, the effect is instant and with a cluttered mind or negative thinking, we will see a vision of our own hellor not remember it at all (due to cluttered mind).
We believe so much that the concrete floor is the real “reality” that other realities are fake by standards. This is why the Esoteric Science walks between ropes of “reality” and “illusion”.
When you are not here in this “reality”, you are in some other reality. This occurs when your brainwave frequencies are low enough to experience them.
For example, Shamans experience different realities at the same time because they are constantly at a low theta brainwave, making it appear like they are hallucinating.
Why Do We Dream?
This question is the same question as “Why do we live?”
And that answer will be different for everyone. But the main thing is that we live to experience.
When you dream, your unconscious self travels around different realities and do what it needs to do (whatever it may be).
Why You Don’t Need a Dream Interpretation
Dreams are subjective and personal. Since dreams are personal, no one can interpret your dreams for you.
The same symbols in your dream is different in other’s minds. So it’s not a good idea to read a dream interpretation book, go to a psychic dream reading, or look for others dream to figure out your own.
A snake in a dream might represent a sinister evil to some religious person but it can also mean wisdom and enlightenment for another.
The Role of the Subconscious Mind in Dreams
Your subconscious mind never sleeps, it’s active 24/7. Your unconscious half is awake even when you are asleep.
In dreams, your subconscious mind speaks to you in symbols.
Remember, the subconscious mind’s primary language are images, symbols are the way to communicate to you since it is constantly recording information.
How Dreams help you in life
Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud has wrote a lot about the interpretation of dreams. They found that the answers to our problems are found in our dreams.
Your subconscious mind can present to you a dramatization of your experience, lesson, fears, and answers in dreams.
As we learn from our experiences here in this reality, we can also learn from our dreams.
