Everyone has their own dreams, each dream is different. Have you ever wondered if is there any reasons explaining those dreams? Here is my answer: Dreams are your subconscious thoughts manifestations. But they also have independent meanings.
Do dreams have meaning?
What dreams mean and whether they mean anything at all. However, has been the subject of debate for about as long as people have been sleeping. Some researchers believe that rapid eye movement (REM) sleep is important for overall well-being. Dreams are nothing more than electrical impulses in the brain that tap into random images in our memory.
As dream researcher Ernest Hartmann notes, however, this may not be the most fruitful approach to dreams. “Would we be satisfied with the view that thinking has no function and is simply an epiphenomenon,” he writes, “the kind of mental activity that occurs when the brain is in the waking state?”
Although his focus is sleep disorders, Dr. Paul Glovinsky, clinical director of St. Peter’s Sleep Center in Albany isn’t one to dismiss a dream as nothing more than a chemical reaction in the brain. “It’s pretty clear that the brain doesn’t shut off when we sleep,” he says. “There’s a certain kind of thinking that goes on and, in my opinion, it’s not random. You see people whose dreams very clearly seem to relate to issues that are on their minds from the near or even the remote past. I’m more impressed with the cognitive processing that’s going on in dreaming, the emotional processing, working out the gist of problems. I don’t think dream research is a dead end; I think it’s pretty rich.”
Why do you dream about certain specific people?
There are some main reasons leading to this phenomenon listed below:
First, this is because you’re thinking about them before you fall asleep. It’s totally easy to understand this purpose. People and events that are going on in your mind prior to sleeping would continue to snip even after you fall asleep. Consequently, when one is thinking about an event or a person before falling asleep, even just a little while, that person may encounter them in his or her dream as well.
The second reason is unresolved business. Apart from the continuous thinking of a person and event from real life into sleep, we also tend to dream about the things that we haven’t done as well as one with whom we have some matters, especially emotional. This is because dreams are a way for your subconscious mind to communicate with your conscious mind. Therefore, when things, in reality, do not go as planned, your subconscious mind tries to play them the way you would have wanted them to go, in your dreams.
The final reason here is that people may be symbols of issues or themes. Actually, the things and people appearing in our dreams are not why they are there. But due to what they represent in our lives. There are several symbols they reveal in our lives, for example, if you see someone who bullied you at school in your dream, it could be a symbol of dealing with the issues in your mind and accepting and loving yourself.
There are a lot of ways people dream, with some not dreaming at all. Some people have happy, vivid dreams, while some have dark, scary nightmares. All of these are associated with our subconscious mind and how we perceive it. Very often, we do not even realize the things that go on in our minds unless pointed out, even if it is by our own minds.
