Quite recently, perhaps it was because I was so bored of just staying at home all throughout my summer break, that I've dreamed of a lot lot more things than I usually do.
Some dreams are funny, which I can't understand even if I later wake up and analyze and try to put the dream puzzle pieces together. Scenes seem to flash by so quick that it was already too late everytime I reached out and tried to capture them with my hands. My dreams are about my childhood memories or my current situation in life.
People say that dreaming is the communication of our brain between the consious and the subconsious side when we're asleep. Often times when I find problems troubling me, I could always find a solution through my dreams. I don't know why, perhaps when dreaming, my mind is in a more concentrated state?
I've experimented on this several times and it always worked. Whenever I lie on my bed and focus myself on thinking about something over and over again before I drift to sleep, I would usually, if not always, dream of what I was thinking about before I entered the sleeping state. Does this happen to you to?
I've had countless dreams in the past 18 years and non of them had been as vivid as the ones I'd had just these recent few months. Maybe they were still fresh in my mind? Or maybe there is something about these dreams that I did not want to let go? There is twice that I dreamed about the same person, well I'm not going to go into too much detail, but it was quite funny and strange. Maybe that person is actually a very important one, only that I failed to realize?
I've had terrible nightmares and also funny and sweet dreams that I would have never dared to imagine when I'm awake and conscious. There had been times when I awoke with tears streaming down my cheeks, most of the time, these were dreams that are connected with my family members and friends. Sometimes I awoke with fear and insecurity while I scan around my room and looked up the ceiling trying to understand what I had just dreamed about.
I would end up giving up the hope of understanding my dreams because it was either I'd forgotten bits of the dream the instant I opened my eyes or mixed up. Oh well, I think I would never ever be able to know what my subconscious side is trying to tell me.
"Dream a better dream, than work to make it real."
Do you think it's logical? I got that quote from a movie about dreams I'd watched before. I thought it is somewhat true, except that it discourages you to look into reality and work to achieve your goals. What do you think?
