Most people dream
Some people can remember what they dream when they wake up
In fact, do you know that some people dream in color, while some dream in black and white?
Comment below which are you!
Anyway, dream interpretation… is something that I don’t do
So why am I doing this?
Why am I sharing my thoughts about dreams if I don’t do dream interpretation?
Because dreaming is a pretty interesting topic that is multi-layered
Whatever you want to call it
Of course, this is more to open your mind
Expand your horizon
Or maybe just tickle your brain a little
So sit back (or stand in the train)
And have a good read~
Is dreaming every night normal?
Contrary to popular belief, dreaming is normal and necessary for our minds!
A lot of people think that when you dream, you don’t get a good night’s rest
And that can’t be further from the truth
The truth is, our minds need to dream when we sleep and that constitutes to a healthy sleep pattern
Not only that, it improves our efficiency, learning, memory and more!
And because everyone can dream with the activation of different intensity of the senses
We can get a wide range of possibilities for the variations of dreams!!
Needless to say, that means that if we get 100 people who dream themselves at the beach
One might feel the heat at the beach, while another feel the cold sea breeze
Or someone perhaps feel the sand beneath their feet, but the next person is more like watching the television or video or it
And because of such uniqueness of each dream, you might understand why I think dream interpretation can’t really be possible
Wouldn’t there be a difference between a green or red snake?
Or even if the snake was sleeping, alive or dead?
Was it poised to strike you, or was it begging for alms?
Did it speak or just hiss?
Maybe it was a guide bringing you to a place, or it was just following you from behind
In any case, each symbol in your dream can be uniquely constructed, which makes it harder for dream interpretation if you ask me
And of course… that is if you are dreaming normally…
What if your dreams… aren’t just dreams…?
Like perhaps they are windows (or cameras) to a different time~
Or even a different dimension~
In Dr Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, they suggest the possibility that when we dream, we are looking through the eyes of ourselves in another universe
So if I dream of another me with the abilities of flight, it could be from a world or universe where super powers are real
Of course, it is just a movie and whether dreams really connect through the multiverse is unknown
Also, some people believe the multiverse is real, others don’t so that is another question
But what about dreams linking to a different time?
For this one we have to open up to the idea or possibility of psychic abilities being real
And so one might have the ability to dream and see the future
A variation will be to dream of what’s happening in another place at the moment of it happening
Some people might experience this as deja vu
Although whether it was a psychic vision or through a dream, both can apply the effect of deja vu when you eventually end up at the event at which you saw
And on the reverse end, if one were to dream of the past, one could make a good detective
Which may also bring into question past lives, as some people might think they are dreaming of their own past lives, or the past lives of a client
If one were a psychic helping people I suppose
Then of course, some people might believe that if you see a deceased loved one in your dream, it means that person has come to visit you
A variation is to dream of deceased people, but complete strangers, and that you have to help them or something
Dreams are illogical
Truthfully, it is also possible that dreams are just dreams and there is no meaning
When we dream, our unconscious mind will take potentially random stuff to put together in the dream
And usually, we dream about the last few things on our minds before we sleep
So if you think about work, you dream about work
If you think about your lover, you dream about your lover
Of course, if you think about your lover but concerned about work, you might dream about work or your lover or your lover at work
Hahahaha you get the picture
I think that our unconscious minds are attempting to organize the experiences we had that day or that week
Or that last show you watched on Netflix
In doing so, it is possible that in order to put faces in the dream, the unconscious mind will find random faces that we have seen before
Whether we know it or not
So if I dream of dating the chicken rice aunty, it doesn’t mean that I like the chicken rice aunty, it could just be a random face selection of my unconscious mind so as to put a face on my mysterious unknown lover
This can also mean that if you dream of your ex, it might not mean that you miss your ex
It could be a random face selection of your unconscious mind for whatever reason
That also means you might get the feeling of missing your ex because you saw your ex in your dream (which was likely a random face selection)
Like if you have a fear of spiders, and see a spider, it will trigger that fear right?
Even if it was seen in a dream
It’s not like you want to dream of spiders isn’t it?
What an interesting dream
That’s the way I see dreams
It’s interesting, but it is just a dream
So even if I dream of a monster or a ghost or what, I might feel some annoyance maybe *shrug*
Otherwise it’s just meh~
What a dream
Many years ago I had such an interesting dream
Ok fine I had quite a few interesting dreams but anyway
In this peculiar dream, I was in a group of adventurers and we had to travel to a designated place in a particular land
This old abandoned building (it was more of ruins really) had a giant of a coffin
And in this coffin, laid a vampire king
A dead vampire king
However, on a particular night, the night of the blood moon, the vampire king will resurrect itself and destroy the world!!
My group and I were tasked to bring this special dagger, in which to insert into the heart of the dead vampire king and it will stop the prophesied resurrection
We travelled through harsh terrain, lands of darkness and monsters alike, fighting our way through
Until we reached the goal!
But when we opened the coffin, we saw a giant skeleton!
No seriously, it was a giant coffin and a giant skeleton
And it had a red jewel embedded in the skull too
Like in the forehead
But now we were clueless… how do you stab the dagger into the heart… if there is no heart to speak of?
Little did we know, that very day we found the coffin, was the day of prophesy
As we were pondering and thinking, the blood red moon shone!
The land started quaking and we saw tendons and muscles started growing on the skeleton!!
Holy smokes it was resurrecting now!!?
But hey, there was a heart growing now so we quickly took the dagger and stabbed it into the heart!
The quakes stopped and the tendons and muscles slowly retracted
We sighed in relief
Yet not a moment too soon, because when the heart disappeared, the dagger fell off, and now the vampire king can resurrect again!!
It took us 5 tries going back and forth, growing retracting etc before we finally managed to put the dagger in the heart space and ensure it does not move
Then I woke up
It was a pretty vivid dream, and I could even feel the vibrations like an earthquake you know
Makes for a good story about dreams though
Share it in the comments if you like
I’ll definitely like to read 😉
