The secret of dreams
Where do dreams come from? The brain creates them, of course, for even
when you sleep, it never stops turning. This is the scientific
explanation. On the psychological level, Freud considered dreams to
express repressed desires and drives that we never dare to express in
reality. For others, the paradoxical sleep comes when the brain creates
dreams, just like a machine that washes our memory. There is one sure
thing that many specialists agree on: while we sleep, the body is at
rest, whereas the brain becomes hyperactive.We cannot, however, reduce
the dreams we have during the night to a series of simple neuronal
processes. Indeed, up to this day, nobody has been able to explain why
one is more inclined to dream certain kinds of dreams. Interpreting
dreams is therefore still considered a foreign domain in a science that
touches on clairvoyance and primitive beliefs. Certain Indian tribes of
North America would not go out hunting not unless the head of their
tribe dreamt about even a part of the hunt.
-When you wake up in the morning, immediately think about the dream you just
-Get yourself a piece of paper and a pen. Make some sort of report on the
information that you have available. Do not be discouraged if the
information seem unrelated to one another.
-Then analyze every element in your dream, one by one. Try to establish a
structure, an outline of how your dream unfolded.
Now you are ready for the interpretation itself:
-Itemize the setting and mood of this dream in written form.
-Enumerate the objects and persons in your dream.
-List down the main events of the dream.
You will now proceed based on the association method, connecting and
crosschecking the most number of responses resulting from the three
abovementioned points. It is important to put everything in writing.
That is the best way to organize your visual memory. Finally, you should
also take into account your mood when you woke up. For example, were you
annoyed, irritated, or calm and relaxed? In the first case, you could
consider it as an element that contributes a lot to the stressful
situation you are currently in.
