Are dreams that important

Enjoy your dreams


            Last night, I dreamed of a world so real, I actually missed the people that were in it. Fact is, throughout the years I have often had that feeling of sorrow without the vaguest idea, why?

            There are many interpretations to dreams, along with interpreters. However, interpretations of dreams is based more on opinionated insight than actual fact.

            The fact remains that the psychology of a dream is simple dribble contrived to share one’s own opinion regarding the dream itself. Some have even gone as far as to add a mystical edge to the translations of dreams…still, based in opinion.

            Truth is, what a person dreams about is unpredictable and uncontrollable, to a certain extent. As a little confession, if I’m having a nightmare, I become my favorite super hero in my dream and put a smack-down on the monster. I know it sounds silly, but that has helped me for a very, very long time.

            When you have a dream, don’t let it bother you. Simply enjoy the dream or dismiss it from your mind. Think of dreams as your mind’s way of entertaining itself, by playing a movie, while the rest of your body sleeps.

            However, some dreams are more profound and some dreams can even offer advice, a chance to see a loved one again or anything, simply because some dreams can be extremely realistic. So, go with the flow of the dream and enjoy it.

            Do I believe that dreams can have a prophetic impact on one’s life? Absolutely! However, I am fairly certain that no dreamer of dreams can focus the dream into finding a certain point in time to take a sneak-peek at. Trust me, if I could I would have been the first person to win the lottery.

            However, you can have dreams that come to pass that leave you with a feeling of déjà vu. (Guess who had to look the spelling up in a dictionary)? And, for you folks that are unfamiliar with the term, Déjà Vu, it means: The experience of thinking that a new situation had occurred before, like a realistic memory.  Still, even if you know it in your heart that, that dream will come to pass…you won’t know when until it does. So, why worry about it?

            Oh, and avoid becoming obsessed with a bad dream especially, a reoccurring nightmare or bad memory. The best way to have a shot at good dreams is to go to sleep at night with happy thoughts on your mind.

            For those of you that suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, will have nightmares that are realistically based on a terrible event in your life. Medicines won't help at all and most sufferers of PTSD also suffer from forced insomnia from a fear of sleeping. Combat soldiers are by far, the worst sufferers from PTSDs and you have my thanks for taking this grevious burdon on yourself, to protect this country and it's people. I wish I knew of a miracle cure for PTSDs but I've come to learn there is not one.

            A way to avoid getting nightmares is to avoid eating heavy or spicy foods two hours before bed time and stay away from drinking too much caffeine, also. Indigestion can cause nightmares and onions, especially.

            Drinking coffee before bed doesn’t help either although I am guilty of this. Having a lot of caffeine in your system can stimulate your nervous system, thereby making you feel restless and making sleep, nearly impossible. Instead, try drinking decafinated tea.

            Ultimately, enjoy your dreams of toss them in the garbage. Either way, dream are not real and you should never allow yourself to be afraid of them while you are awake. Although, musing over a good dream is definitely a way to enjoy passing some time during the day.

            Thank you for reading this article. I know it may seem poorly written without a lot of facts and figures regarding the wonderful world of dreams. Still, my point is laid out in the simplest of terminology. Dreams are not real and are only our mind’s way of entertaining itself while we sleep.

            Thanks again and have a great day!
