About Dreams

Did you know?

  • We all dream, every night, even if we don’t remember them.
  • Dreams can play an important role in managing stress.
  • Poor sleep can affect your dream content as well as your ability to remember them.
  • Your recurring nightmare may be offering you an important message
  • Stephenie Meyer dreamt the Twilight Saga?

Dreams have been described as the window in to our soul… Each of us dreams in a different way and every dream is unique to the person dreaming it. It’s almost impossible for us to have a clear idea of exactly what a particular person, object or place in another person’s dream looked like, as the detail is contained wholly within the mind of the Dreamer.

“An uninterpreted dream is like an unopened letter.”

The Talmud

The Electroencephalograph (EEG) was invented and it was discovered that electromagnetic changes in brain activity were measurable. Over time and using these ‘waves’ of activity, it was established there is a pattern the brain follows during sleep, which incorporates various stages. It is the stage of sleep referred to as Rapid Eye Movement (REM) that is usually associated with dreaming. Sleep research has shown that dreaming is essential to our health and well being.

“As fresh facts about dream and nightmare emerge, we seem tantalizingly close the heart of the ancient enigma; but each discovery reveals yet another puzzle to be solved.”

Sandra Shulman (Author of ‘Nightmare’)
