Remembering Dreams

We dream when we fall asleep. Everyone dreams but hardly can anyone recollect the dream, few know that they had dreamt but can’t remember at all. It needs lot of practice and concentration to remember. To be conscious while dreaming, to be aware that ‘I’m dreaming right now’ is like an axiom – ‘easy said that done’. Some practice to remember dreams, while some have the gift by birth.

Based on the research, all of our dreams are colorless. We barely find 1 out of 100 who have colorful dream. We often see people whom we’ve never met before, places where we’ve never been in our life, sometimes we find our self trapped, sometimes we are free and so on. There are internal and external stimuli that affect our dreams. Internal stimuli relate the condition of our mind, body posture and our relationships. We see the people, we are acquainted with. A disturbed mind, with broken relationships, hate and torture often dream the same. But the moment they wake, they find themselves calm and quite. It is said that, dream fulfills our desires and is true indeed. On the contrary a happy mind can even experience trouble and pain at sleep. Place your both hands on your chest while sleeping; the time you wake you’ve had a nightmare. Try it once.

External stimuli are the factors other than our mind and body, our surroundings, bed room condition, and other factors that produce sound. I’ve had a dream 2 months back which relates to external stimuli. I heard a soothing music playing; I wanted to listen to it all, but the music plays and stops every time when I want to listen more. I woke up and when I checked my mobile someone had called me; there were 4 missed calls. There were two of us in that room. When I shared my experience with him I was shocked, he told me that he even had the same kind of dream.

Internal stimuli impose more than external stimuli. If we are not allowed to dream at asleep the next day we’ll only feel weary and lazy. No matter how long we sleep but if we are not allowed to dream or if we can’t dream, the whole day is going out to be just a lousy day.

Keep dreaming, and try to remember it the next day you open your eyes.
