When you are tired
Why are you tired?
So you may ask the question - why do we sleep? Why can't I sleep?
Do you find going to sleep hard?
This leaves us with a question. This dream website will provide a path into your unconscious mind – every dream we have has a meaning and this website will help you understand what that means to your life, to help serve you with inner knowledge so that you can make better decisions in life.
As a spiritual believer, I feel that during our dreams we experience paths of other worlds within the dark night hours. Surprisingly it is not biologically necessary for us to sleep at night, or indeed for humans to sleep. Even people that suffer insomnia manage to get at least two hours sleep per night. When you go into a deep sleep, which is the point that vivid dreams are experienced, it is difficult to wake that person and in essence, they are unresponsive. It is interesting to note that although today we are generally safe when we sleep there was a time that we and other animals are at risk from predators when we sleep.
Why can't you sleep?
Let’s now look at some of the interesting scientific theories around sleep - starting with our body parts. So what happens when we sleep in terms of our body and how does this react. I have touched on the fact that our body does not really need any sleep in order to function - however if we don't sleep we can actually die. Every night we move every few minutes to prevent our body becoming stiff. This then goes against the fact that we need sleep in order for our body to function. Most of our body parts, for example, our heart and also our brain does not need rest. Science shows that our brain is so erratic during sleep it is as if it is detached from the body. We will review the theory around the occult world and dreams later on, but for now, it is interesting to note this.
The problem with brain activity scientific experiments is that it is still quite new, therefore, we are in the position where it is hard to understand and draw conclusions. A professor at Edinburgh university was forced to come to the conclusion that sleep causes a temporary insanity. The other strange pattern of dreams that I have experienced is actually feeling like the dreams themselves are a reality. In this website, we will explore dreams and your meanings. I have an area for you to post up your dreams and allow me to answer your questions.
Our dreams are a summation of what we experience in daily life and the potential of what we could become in our lives, it would be true to say that we rarely remember our dreams and are often couched in such symbols and we just dismiss what we have learned during the night and see them as fantasies. Our emotions are sometimes compressed into the hours of sleep, which in turn produces a feeling of going to a strange land, rather much like a supercomputer of our brains.This is quite interesting in that he feels our dreams are all about opening up the spirit world and are focused on delivering messages from another existence? So why am I bothering to look at the history behind dreams?
Basically, I have come to the conclusion that people from the 1800’s study dream more so that today, it was considered a pastime, to try to understand what each dream means, therefore, it is important to look at the history behind what the theorists say. In addition, we can also read a number of dream accounts in ancient diaries, which may provide a clue to see if any of these dreams actually meant anything now these people have actually passed away and we have to some degree an account of their life’s. Throughout the dream dictionary, you will find examples from various very old dairies and I have tried to interpret the dreams accordingly.
What can you do about insomnia?
Although insomnia can be annoying, it is best to not worry about it. Even though it can happen to anyone, especially when we are stressed, it is possible. You can try reading or taking a relaxing drink. Consider these points if your insomnia is more severe. Avoid eating high-protein foods like cheese and meat before bed. These foods are difficult for the stomach to digest, and can cause you to have nightmares or keep you awake at night.
- Are you experiencing stress or depression? Talk to a friend or seek professional assistance from a therapist or doctor if you are experiencing stress.
- Make sure there aren't too many electrical appliances around your bed. They may emit electromagnetic radiation that could cause you to be sensitive.
- Avoid caffeine-containing drinks like tea, coffee, and cola. Their effects can last for hours. You may have trouble sleeping if you consume too much alcohol.
Sometimes, insomnia could be due to another reason. Talk to your doctor if you have trouble sleeping.
Big Dreams and Small Dreams
A book by a the famous Jung shows that dreams can be segmented into two categories: big dreams and small dreams. If you practice remembering these dreams, as outlined in our meditation section then we can see quickly the significance of both the dreams. A further way of defining what our dreams mean is to separate them into good and bad dreams – simple right? With this knowledge, it is possible for you to actually change the dream which is called the RISC technique and was first recognized in the USA as a therapy tool. The steps for you to begin to actually change:
1. Identify whilst you are dreaming that a bad dream is happening
2. Think about the feeling that you are having while you are dreaming
3. Change the dream from negative to positive.
This may sometimes require you to completely wake from your sleep in order to do this. This technique may take some time to master but it can be easily carried out. Often based on theories we change our attitude every six to eight weeks, so our psychological makeup changes at this time. It is important to understand how this actually affects our dreams going forward. During this timeframe our mind better deals with any problems or issues.
