Dreams

Posted by Mark Salinas on January 19, 2009

During a typical lifespan, a human spends a total of about six years dreaming (which is about two hours each night). It is unknown where in the brain dreams originate, if there is a single origin for dreams or if multiple portions of the brain are involved, or what the purpose of dreaming is for the body or mind.

Some dream quotes:

“Dreams that do come true can be as unsettling as those that don’t.”- Brett Butler

“Hope is a waking dream.”- Aristotle

“Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.”-Friedrich von Schiller

“Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”- John Updike

Why should you bother remembering your dreams?

1. Your dreaming mind has access to vital information that is not readily available to you when you are awake. Your dreams may reveal your secret desires and subconscious feelings.

2. In remembering your dreams, you will have an increased knowledge about yourself, bring about self-awareness and self-healing.  Dreams are an
extension  of how you perceive yourself. They can be a source of inspiration, wisdom,  joy and overall improved psychological health.

3. Learning to recall your dreams may help you become a more assertive person.  In remembering your dreams, you are expressing and confronting your feelings.

4. Dreams can help guide you though difficult decisions, relationship issues, health concerns, career questions or any life struggle you may be going through.

5. Remembering your dreams can help you come to terms with stressful aspects of your lives.

Maybe it is time to dream!

    Hi Mark,

    Great blog, I have visited this site for years but never really posted until I came across your post about dreams. I started as a hobby my dream dictionary website, and it has kind of grown.
    I would love your feedback on my site — keep up the great articles.

    Many thanks,
