Dreams

Hello, hello, hello, everyone!!! I hope you are all good.

Today I would like to speak about dreams. Everyone has dreams. Maybe it’s to visit a place or concert. However, today I won’t speak about this type of dream. Today I would like to speak about those that you have when you are sleeping.

The main reason I chose to speak about dreams is because of the positives they bring to our lives, such as helping you solve an issue or allowing you to focus on what is making you feel stressed. They also inspire you with ideas which make you succeed in life.

Not every day can you remember what you dreamed last night. Sometimes they are nice dreams, others are scary, sad, exciting… I enjoy each time I dream because it is like watching a movie but more intense.

Dreams are a collection of day-to-day events or worries you may have or even thoughts you have had throughout the day. Sigmund Freud saw dreams as a door to our unconscious – thoughts, feelings and desires.

Have you ever analysed your dreams? Have you ever Googled what your dream means? I tend to do it a lot. And I find that the more I do it, the more I find out about myself. I try to understand the dream and then interpret the different meanings that it could have when comparing it to my day-to-day life.

For example, once I dreamed about being naked in front of my whole school. I interpret it as being very shy when people looked at me, and the fact I was naked in the dream was just a symbol to let myself go and become less shy. To tell you the truth, dreams have helped me a lot with my insecurities and stresses I have had throughout my life. However, it is not something you can relay because it does not always happen that you are able to remember, and that’s fine.

My intention with this post is to understand the reason why we have dreams and what some of the dreams might mean. I leave you with a video here to help you understand it a bit better and it might help you with your interpretations.

 

 

“A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep… If you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true”. – Cinderella, Walt Disney.
