What are dreams?
Dreams are one of life's most fascinating and intriguing mysterys. Humanity has had a love affiar with trying to figure out our dreams since the dawn of man. Here at dream central you will find practical knowledge you can use to understand and interpret your dreams.
Many people throughout history have misunderstood the art of dream interpretation. Many had wild theories that it was some kind of interaction with the afterlife, while others believe dreams are some sort of alternate reality. Fortunately many people realize that dreams are an extension of your consciousness, your brain's way of organizing and analyzing your day to day events while you are sleeping.
Dreaming is important to your psychological well being, in fact if you didn't do it your mental health would suffer.
In order to remember dreams, there are few important things to keep in mind. First, eat a well balanced healthy diet. Second, it is very important to get a good night's sleep! People rarely sleep as long as they should, and not sleeping enough is the main, number one cause of not remembering your dreams!
Suppose you are getting enough sleep and eating well balanced diet, and are still having trouble remembering your dreams? You should consider what type of medication you're taking and read the drug interactions to see if it interferes with sleep patterns.
Lucid dreaming is best known as the experience of having extremely vivid, rememberable dreams. Some people have a great deal of difficulty in achieving a lucid dreams state. This is the cause lucid dreaming is not a normal thing! Most of the time we experience lucid dreams because we have something really heavy on our mind. The dream is vivid be cause our subconscious mind wants to alert us and help us with some kind of problem that is bearing down on our conscious mind. Think of a lucid dreaming as a psychological antibody, it is attacking the problem by bringing it to the forefront of your mind.
However, you do not have to have a psychological problem in order to experience lucid dreaming! It takes a lot of personal, mental discipline to train yourself to have lucid dreams. There are many techniques involved in learning this skill. We will discuss them in detail in this website. Be warned, inducing lucid dreaming often, may prevent you from getting the natural lucid dreams that your mind wants to have when you have a problem.
Before embarking on any attempt to interfere with your own sleep cycle, you should make a good effort to understanding the entire sleeping process. Only with understanding do we gain wisdom.
How important is sleeping? If you do not sleep you will die! It's that important. People addicted to amphetamines such as crystal meth suffer most of their severe physical damage due to sleep deprivation. If you have ever stayed awake longer than three days you get a good idea of what I'm talking about! Hallucinating is one of the first symptoms that your mind is starved for sleep.
Even if you do sleep nightly, if you don't get enough of it, you will still suffer the effects. You may not hallucinate, what you will feel all fall fatigued, lethargic and run down., How much sleep is enough sleep? It varies from person to person some say 8 hours is enough some need as much as 10. Any less than eight is normally considered unhealthy.
We also have two kinds of dream dictionaries. One is "static" like an ordinary dictionary, the other is "dynamic", meaning it is written in the discussion forums and is far bigger. The dynamic dream dictionary can be commented on, and registered users can add their own symbols, or comment on exisiting ones.
