On Dreams and Dreaming

Why Do We Dream?
Scientists tell us that we all dream every night. As a matter of fact, we each have about 6-8 dreams every night. But we often do not remember our dreams.

Dreams seem to have several purposes. Some dreams are just memories of our mind doing the job of "filing away" information we have learned during the day. Other dreams, however, come from our inner minds with messages for us. They come to tell us things we need to know, but may not be paying attention to. Dreams are one way our inner minds "talk " to us.

Hidden Messages in Dreams
Dreams often contain messages – messages from ourselves to ourselves.

Dreams may come to say, "You're doing fine. Hang in there." Or the message may be, "You've gone off in the wrong direction. Take a close look at you're doing in your life right now. You need to make some changes."

Dreams come in many forms. We can have creative dreams, like Einstein and Edison are said to have had. Some dreams may "show" us a future event. Many others are problem-solving dreams. They give us advice about how to solve a problem in our lives.

Reoccurring Dreams
Reoccurring dreams are especially important. These are dreams that come over and over again. They always contain the same message. This message is one that your inner mind is trying to get you to notice. Your inner will patiently give you the same dream over and over for years until you finally "get the message".

What Can Dreams Tell Us?
Dreams contain messages from yourself to yourself. Dreams can tell you how you really feel about yourself and others. They tell you how you feel about the events in your life. They give you your personal point of view about things. But the way you see things may or may not be the how others see them.

Dreams can tell you about when and where you feel in control of your life. They can tell you when and where you don't. They can tell you about times where you feel you have been "good." They also can tell you about times when you feel you have been "bad." They can help you make decisions. They can help you figure out what is best for you in any situation.

All you have to do is ask!

How to Use Your Dreams
Dreams can be invaluable sources of inner wisdom. To get help from your dreams, you must first remember them. It usually takes an average of three to five weeks to learn to recall your dreams. But by following some simple, easy steps, almost everyone can begin to remember their dream. They can then get the benefits of these important messages.

• Give yourself a pre-sleep suggestion. Just before you fall asleep, say to yourself several times, "I am going to remember my dreams."

• Keep a pad and pencil by your bed. Write down any memories or bits of memories about your dreams as soon as you wake up. (Or as soon as possible after that).

• When you wake up in the morning, do not jump right out of bed. Stay in bed a few minutes. Review any thoughts or images that may be floating around in your mind. These may remind you of a dream.

· Give dreams a name or "theme." This "classifies" the dream. It helps you remember the dream. It also helps you to bring up any of the ideas connected with the dream.
