What Are The Dreams You Dream While You Lay Sleeping?

Dreams: a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person's mind during sleep.
Experience dreams during sleep. Contemplate the possibility of doing something or that something might be the case.

Dreams can be vivid and in color. Dreams can occur anytime during sleep, but most of the time these vivid dreams occur during deep, so called REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. That is when the brain is most active. On average, we dream at about four to six times per night.

''Dream the impossible dream, fight the unbeatable foe, bear with unbearable sorrow, run where the brave dare not go...''

Dreams can be can be a lot of fun, or they can be disturbing nightmares or just plain bizarre. All of us dream, even if we don't remember them the next day. But why do we dream? And what do these dreams mean anyway?

Dreams are memory constructs - stories and images our mind creates while we sleep. They're purpose is basically two-fold. They reset the mind and help us resolve emotional conflicts that happened during the day. Recurring dreams reflect our deepest thoughts and feelings, our desires, fears, and concerns.

Another part of the act of dreaming is precognitive. It has been described everywhere in literature from the Bible to a Stephen King novel and many other writers. Perhaps, it has happened to you.

Precognitive dreams are dreams that appear to predict the future through a sixth sense; a way of accessing future information that is unrelated to any existing knowledge acquired through normal means.

Dreams are important. Why? Everything happens for a reason. Do you want to get the most out of your dreams? Keep a pen and paper next to your bed. Write down your dream(s) first thing in morning, while they are still fresh in your mind, as you know, dreams tend to fade away in time. Write down anything you recall and the feelings and emotions.

Nighttime dreaming can bring daily problems into sharp focus or help us set personal or business goals. Nighttime dreaming is closely related to daytime dreams and planning for the future. Nighttime dreams process the past and prepare us for setting and achieving future goals. 'Dream big' is a favorite saying of this author and many others.

Dreams have terrified, guided and fascinated us since the beginning of time and will continue to do so.

Pay attention to them.
