It’s okay if you’ve been having unusual dreams – you’re not alone. We all dream, every night, even if we don’t remember them – it’s science-y stuff, but nonetheless if you’re sleeping, you’re dreaming. And your dreams have a story to tell.
At a recent event, I asked people if they’d ever had a weird dream and sure enough most people could remember at least one. One of the weirdest I ever had was that I appeared in a Scooby Doo movie (I’ve never met anyone else who dreams in cartoon). Weird dreams, nightmares, recurring dreams are all providing a picture, an opportunity to delve a little deeper, to help you understand what’s going on and, in some cases, what might happen next. People sometimes feel nervous talking about their dreams, but they are a natural and essential part of our health and wellbeing.
I talk about all of this in my book Answers in the Dark: Grief, Sleep and How Dreams Can Help You Heal. It’s available to order on Amazon. This video explains more.
