What did you Dream last night –
WellBeing Dream Decoder explains
In your dream last night… were you FLYING, being CHASED, trying to fix BROKEN THINGS, DRIVING a car, FALLING from a great height or escaping a TIDAL WAVE?
These are among some of the most common dreams had by people around the world – and there are more than 200 of them in Dream Decoder, the new book by Amy Campion for WellBeing Publishing.
Have you ever woken up exhausted from exploring NEW ROOMS, having BABIES or extensive TRAVEL? Did your TEETH fall out, were you NAKED, or did you find yourself at a FEAST?
Amazingly, these grand themes cross-cultural barriers. Every night around the world, literally millions of people are escaping tidal waves in their dreams. And these dreams reveal things to us. By reflecting on and understanding our dreams, we better appreciate our own motivations, worries and relationships.
By uncovering the symbols in our dreams, we gain deeper insight, find revealing points of connection, or see old problems in new ways. Scientists now believe that one of the purposes of sleep is to allow the mind to consolidate memories and facilitate learning. Dreams reflect this process. They help you connect recent experiences with similar ones in your past. This can help you to recall them later (memory consolidation). They also work to help you make sense of what you are experiencing (learning.) This may include obvious repetition of actual life events, such as if you move house again or start another new job. Dream connections can also happen when similar feelings arise, such as the sense of rejection you had when not picked for the sports team in school and then a similar feeling later in life at being overlooked for a promotion. Dreams often appear to illustrate what is going on beneath the surface.
Working with dreams is a powerful tool for personal inquiry. The process can help you to understand your hidden fears and desires, work out relationships and cope with change. However, the larger, more enduring reason to understand dreams is to understand our true selves.
