Some people might go through years of never remembering their dreams than all of a sudden the flood gates open up and you are bombarded by random vivid dreams every night.
Why am I dreaming so much all of a sudden?
But what happens when these dreams have no other reason for entering your field of awareness? Well it turns out for this answer you might need to put on your spiritual tinfoil hat. The reason why you might be dreaming so much all of a sudden could be the fact you have tapped into this unconscious grid that very few have learned to understand its language.
If you are suddenly experiencing vivid dreams all of a sudden there might be a logical explanation behind this occurrence such as being over worked, stress or diet changes just to name a few.
Where do dreams come from?
The question of why we dream has fascinated philosophers and scientists for thousands of years. Depending on who you ask you might get a different answer, for example in the science field they seem to think are linked to the threat-simulation theory; connected to an ancient biological defense mechanism that mentally prepares us for an unexpected bad event. In fact, they might even think that these nightmares contain more benefits than harm for the dreamer.
According to Sigmund Freud dream theory he understood that our dreams bridge our unconscious desires, thoughts, wish fulfillment, and motivations to our conscious world. As time goes on Freud theories suggesting our motives are driven by repressed and unconscious longings, such as aggressive and sexual instincts seem to be a bit outdated.
After analyzing over 50, 000 dreams and my own for that matter, I have come to the conclusion that Carl Jung understanding of dreams seems to be the closest to the interpretation – as the psyche’s attempt to communicate important things to the individual, and he valued them highly, perhaps above all else, as a way of knowing what lies below the surface of every human being.
However, it seems the only way this world becomes animated depends entirely on the dreamers effort to water the plants to grow.
If you remember your dreams is it a warning?
Dreams have a tendency to come true the next day, but of course you probably wouldn’t know because you are unable to decode the meaning. In the bizarre dream realm were death can be a symbol of rebirth and a party might suggest an actual death, how would you even know what your dream is warning you about.
The majority of dreams are not warnings but rather have more to do with your current life events or the theme is based on either repressed emotions.
Though there are some people that only dreams when something bad is going to happen. These dreams might jolt them out of bed in the middle of the night feeling something at the pit of their stomach that something bad is going to unfold. Precognitive dreams might come as a warning to prep you for what’s to come in the future. If the deal has already been sealed and there is nothing you can do to stop it, do we really have free will?
Remembering dreams good or bad?
Some people like myself love to remember my dreams but others dread the idea of them, mostly it is based off of fears, lack of introspection or misunderstandings of its power. So it depends on the person really if dreams if you considered dreams are actually either good or bad, but in my experience dreams are amazing and the only place you can find what you are truly looking for. For others remember dreams is bad because they have control issues or the type of people that need to know to feel comfort.
Why do we forget our dreams so quickly?
The main reason why we forget our dreams so quickly is due to the fact you don’t try hard enough to remember them. Just think the first minute we lose approximately 90 percent of our dream content. By this alone how do you think people can tell you the meaning of dreams when you might just remember one or two small details.
- Make it a habit the moment you wake up to remember.
- Keep a dream journal beside your bed table or write them on your phone
- Schedule your sleep for a consistent sleep cycle.
- Wake up during REM sleep and write down your dreams
- Ensure you’re comfortable and can achieve deep sleep.
Now it’s time to put on your tinfoil hat
Trying to constantly remember your dreams is sort of like weight training, you need to practice that muscle in order to get stronger dream recall. Once you can write a long paragraph you will notice a strange pattern unfolding. This is something science fails to talk about…
Why do I remember dreams from childhood?
Sometimes dreams are so vivid they have the ability to stay with us our whole entire lives. We might remember flying in the sky like superman, a precognitive theme or sometimes being chased by a monster — for some reason these dream have left an imprint in our mind for a reason. During major mental shifts or transitions these dreams will sway between positive and negative depending on your life experience. Dreaming of going back to your childhood would suggest there is a repressed memory or a mental block within you that needs to be examined. See inner child and childhood home in the search bar.
