Our Dreams At Night
Can we work out our problems through our dreams at night? Yes, I believe so. Dreams are transformative, effective, and powerful ways to work out our issues.
The first thing to do is get yourself a dream journal. Then, put your journal by your bed, with a pen. As soon as you wake up, write down your dream in as much detail as you can remember. By keeping track of time, you will see different types of dreams. You will be able to see patterns, symbols, and messages.
There is so much that goes on in the sleep dimension. People wake up to memories, lost items can be found in dreams. Ideas, inspiration; especially events, seeing an event or meeting in the future and then experiencing déjà vu when the event happens.
For artists and musicians, going into the unconscious dream state can be a source of inspiration. Numerous artists have accredited their dreams for a portion or even the whole painting. Composers, songwriters, and even poets have also claimed their work came through a dream.
Even dogs and cats have dreams. People have been studying dreams for centuries. Aristotle left many writings referred to as “exoteric writings”.
Carl G. Jung was considered one of the greatest minds of our times. Almost a century ago, began his investigation of dreams. He adopted an important new attitude. His approach was integrating the personal unconscious and its dream contents with the symbols of religion, literature, philosophy, and art.
He insisted that we must give up all preconceived opinions when it comes to the unconscious mind. Sometimes, your dreams can be very simple. Dealing with a problem that you are having in your daily life. Your feelings about someone or something.
If you struggle to remember your dreams, there are certain things you can do to help yourself remember. Ask your mind a question right before you go to sleep. It can be about anything. Write the question in your dream journal. Then, in the morning record what you dreamt. If you feel the dream doesn’t make sense, to your question, the following night, ask the same question again. Record your dream again. By the third night, your answer should become clearer.
It’s a good idea to avoid alcohol before bed. It’s harder to remember your dreams. We all have our symbols and images. Dream dictionaries can be wrong for your situation.
Being confident, in your ability to remember your dreams, helps you remember them. Fearful dreams that have reoccurred over and over in your life are usually based on fears. When you face fear, it makes a big difference in your life. Over time, in your dream journal, you will see that you do receive help in your daily life from your dreams. Your symbols will start to make sense to you. Often, animals play a part in our dreams and can help us understand ourselves better.
