I thought it was at least 4am when I awoke today. It was probably something I ate but I had 30 dreams while I was lying on my back and I was sure it was time to be awake again. So now my topic will be about dreams. Ever since I was a child I’ve been fascinated by dreams, learning how to lucid dream early on and playing with sleep my whole life.
I always viewed dreams of having importance, just as many cultures have throughout the past. Are they just a culmination of our thoughts? the effect of our brains organizing our daily experiences? Are they connected to something higher? such as a message from our higher self?
I usually dream about the future, about subjects that I will be dealing with the upcoming day and reviewing the day in some kind of abstract manner. I enjoy sleep quite a bit and have always used it as a way to prepare myself for the day ahead. I find most of the answers I seek by just sleeping on a subject. In that sense, maybe I do connect to my higher-self.
All I really know about dreams is that they are very vivid and hard to forget at times; it’s as if they carry a very important message for me to understand(either from my subconscious or something more powerful). I take heed and am grateful for the time I get to sleep and especially when I dream so much that I think many more hours have passed than actually have. I’m usually more well rested and prepared to take on anything when I wake up at 2am thinking its 5am(especially when I’m usually waking up at 9am hoping it was 6am…)
