Does everyone dream? How come I do not remember my dreams?

Dreams spiral into the depth of the subconscious

We all need dreams. They have performed experiments where people were not allowed to dream because they interrupted the sleeper’s REM sleep. When they were allowed to go to sleep again without their REM sleep being interrupted, they made up for all the REM sleep they had missed by dreaming much more than they would have otherwise.

People with extreme psychological disorder or serious physical illness/malfunction do not dream. Marijuana, and alcohol to a lesser extent, block dream memory. Otherwise, everyone dreams. They just forget that they had a dream. The problem is not that they are not having dreams, the problem is that they cannot access their memory to recall dreams.

Surprisingly, people who wake up several times during the night may actually have more dreams. This is because for the dream to be remembered, it has to be transferred from short-term memory to long-term memory. This transfer takes place best when you are awake. So as long as you go back to sleep, waking up lightly several times at night may actually help you remember dreams.

Dream image 424: Power animals
In dreams, animals represent a part of the dreamers instincts. Basically, when you ask what a particular person’s power animal is, you are asking what instincts are particularly effective, relevant and salient for that person in their situation now. By getting in touch with their power animal, the thought is that the dreamer will be able to use the most effective part of their instinctive energy to help them in their life now consciously.

What do dolphins mean in a dream?

Dream Image 421: Dolphins are a sparkling, pure and playful energy in dreams

Animals usually represent instinctive energy in dreams. Water virtually always represents emotions in dreams, especially subconscious emotions as the ocean is the biggest symbol of the subconscious that we have. When it involves the ocean, the dream usually involves how you are handling or traversing emotional energy in the world which includes your own and energy from the collective subconscious (unconscious).

Dolphins are almost always good news when they appear in dreams. It usually represents the dreamer has an abundance of competent, playful and social energy as dolphins are very interactive with other species and especially with humans. Other than people , they are one of the few species to have sex also for the fun of it.

They have so many human-like qualities that it is not hard to believe, as some evolutionary biologistso have hypothesized, that dolphins may have first evolved from the sea and transitioned to land; however,they then changed direction and returned to the ocean because it was a more favorable environment than land. In the sea, dolphins have few predators other than some misguided humans and some types of sharks.

What is sleep paralysis and why does it occur?

It’s All Happening Here Now

The following is the video describing sleep paralysis:

Discussion 347: Elaboration on possible related sleep paralysis phenomena

Theoretical physicists can prove that there are at least 10 dimensions plus time. We experience only three of them. It is possible we are being visited by beings from other dimensions.

How much any such beings can actually influence this dimension is subject to question. There appears to be definite limits as it is rare to hear of someone actually being hurt. Personally, I am a skeptical believer, thinking that one day science will find the truth.

It is amazing the experiences people report having. Bill Monroe started the Monroe Institute because he spontaneously started traveling outside of his body in an astral projection sort of way. He was a very conservative IBM type who was not prone to this type of experience. It makes for very interesting reading.

The US Army believes in related phenomena much more than they let on as they tried to locate crashed planes sometimes by getting a group of remote viewers and seeing if they can find the places of greatest agreement. They say this is not psychic, but something that can be taught to anyone. I’ve been told that it is somehow like the collective unconscious.

All of this is speculative as we are years away from discovering the true meaning of it all. And strangely enough, I think technology will eventually elaborate on the strange experiences that people have experienced and will find that it’s not uncommon and that it can be induced. The problem is we have only limited and hit-or-miss ways of doing so now.

The Whole Enchilada

The Hot Enchilada
There Are Many Ways To Be Hot

Dream 293:A 32-year-old woman dreamt that she was an enchilada in a pan with other enchiladas on both sides of her. She was suffocatingly hot. She was so hot that she actually woke up to find her cat and her husband on each side of her.

Interpretation

This dream was true on both the physical and emotional levels of dream interpretation. She woke up because she was physically hot as the heat was turned up in her house and she was between the bodies of her cat and husband. Many people interpreting dreams would stop with the physical interpretation. That is most often a mistake.

While the physical interpretation is certainly true, the emotional interpretation of this dream was also accurate. She was a very nurturing person to her family which is why she appears as food in the dream. Food is psychological nurture in dreams. She admitted that she was “hot” in the sense that her husband had not had sex with her for awhile.

In this case the word “hot” took on multiple meanings. She was “hot” in the sense that she was good-looking. She was “hot” because she had not had sex for a while. Finally her anger toward her husband was a “hot” emotion. To disregard the psychological meaning of this dream would have missed a lot.

Dream Condensation

Man Is A Biopsychospiritual Being Man Is A Biopsychospiritual Being

Dream Explanation 292:

There are many levels to dreams which include physical, psychological, and spiritual. At the physical level, it is vitality. At the psychological level, it is emotion. At the spiritual level, it is the energy of the universe.

In most dreams, all levels are true and when this happens we call it dream condensation. Dreams always use the most efficient means of communicating the most information possible which is what condensation is. Having a “big dream” is a gift that keeps on giving.

I am finishing my personal story and sojourn to health by putting MS into remission with the help of the universe/God. It will be my second book showing that dreams were an important part of that journey. My personal psychology enters into the picture a lot. I basically see years of physical abuse as laying the foundation for having the foundation for contracting the chronic illness of multiple sclerosis. Amazon will publish it first as an ebook. The name of the book will be something like MS Mission Remission: Healing Severe Chronic Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds.

Awakened Dreams

Awakened DreamsIf you wake up slightly several times per night, you are more likely to remember dreams. That’s because, if you wake up slightly, you are more likely to commit the dream to long-term memory. People who have more active temporoparietal junctions (hearing related area of the brain) during sleep tend to remember dreams more because noise is more likely to slightly awaken them and they commit the dream to long-term memory (information from the 2/22/14 Washington Post at http://m.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/study-the-key-to-remembering-your-dreams-might-be-the-blood-flow-in-your-brain/2014/02/22/486125e2-9a56-11e3-b88d-f36c07223d88_story.html
