Tips & Suggestions

Are My Dreams Trying to Tell Me Something?

Dreams have been a topic of discussion and debate for decades and even centuries. Some experts say that dreams are a window to the mind and the soul, while others will say they’re just the brain’s way of processing events and working through things while the body rests. However, it’s a safe bet that if you keep having the same dreams, or you have similar themes in your dreams, something might be worth noticing. 

Why Do We Dream?

Some people will continue to say that “it’s not entirely understood” as to why people dream. However, many experts in the field of psychology will tell you that the fundamental purpose of dreaming is to allow our brains to process all the emotions that we experience in a day and a lifetime. 

Dreams are a flow of emotions, working as our brain handles 98% of the unconscious awareness that people have. That’s right—when you are awake, your brain is only consciously aware of 2% or so of what you experience throughout the day. The rest usually is absorbed in the form of emotions and then comes out in dreams.  

Dream Dictionaries 

You can find dream dictionaries that will tell you about certain topics, themes, or types of dreams. A word of caution: these are not always reputable and/or accurate. Some are more credible than others and many are created to provide more generalized interpretations so they may not give you the exact answers that you seek. 

Still, they can be a good starting point for those just learning about dreams and their power.

Recurring Themes 

If you have a dream with a recurring theme or event, it could be a sign that there’s something that you are trying to work through or need to address. For example, if you keep having a stressful dream about tornadoes, it could mean that you feel like your life is out of control and constantly a mess. If you dream about getting lost all the time, it could mean that you feel like you’re struggling to find direction in your waking life. 

These, of course, are all just suggestions and theories and shouldn’t be taken for any kind of medical or other advice. And if you really want to start tapping into the power of your dreams, practice mindfulness and self-awareness to help you remember more and focus on the elements that deserve your attention.
