If you Google for Why Do We Dream?, you’ll get a long list of results. Many questioned why we dream. Is there any effect to someone’s body when that person dreams? Is there any side effect when someone dreams?
According to this article on top dream theories, some researches suggest that dreams have no purpose at all. On the other hand, some believe that dreaming is essential to the mental, emotional and physical well-being of a person.
Some even believe that dreams have a meaning to it. All you need is just a guide to interpret dreams. A quick search brought me to this online guide to dream interpretation website. I say that it is quite a good read if you are interested or curious about dreams.
One thing I find fascinating about dreams is the ability or inability for us to control it. Most of the time, I am just a passenger in my dream and don’t even know I was dreaming. However, there were a few occasions where I knew I was dreaming and was able to somewhat control it. They call it lucid dream.
I was not able to fully control the progress of my dream on the very first try though. In fact, I never did manage to have total control, only partial. The first couple of times, I woke up immediately after I realized that I was dreaming. After a few more “practices”, I was able to play “director” in my own dream. It felt pretty cool I must say.
Some dreams can be so intense and real to the point that I wake up feeling confused. At times, the negative feeling caused by a dream can lasts for hours before it ends.
Have you ever experienced anything like that in the past? Have you ever wondered if it is possible that two (or more) people “meet” in a dream?
