Most dreams are a rehash of the day’s events, but they provide us with a mental sorting process essential for our sanity. As a gateway to the mind’s unconscious thinking, they also deal with impressions and issues pushed to the back of the mind. They are a window to your ego self.
Dreams often play out emotions we are uncomfortable with in our waking life. They can reveal hidden aspects of the personality, answers to questions, or insights into the future like precognitive dreams.
When I started my spiritual journey, I began to remember more of my dreams and my dream landscape changed. I noticed there were two types of dream.
Loopy replays of the day’s events
Anxieties and insecurities
Unresolved problems and inner conflicts
Ordinary dream with something out of place
Common dream themes
While dreams are often heavily influenced by our personal settings and experiences, researchers have found that certain themes are very common across different cultures. For example, people from all over the world frequently dream about:
• Arriving late
• Losing teeth
• Being chased
• Being attacked
• Frozen and unable to move,
• Trying to walk, but moving very slowly
• Forgetting or misplacing something important
• Being unable to get to a place
• Losing a baby or child
• Being naked in public
• Flying and gliding
• Can’t see clearly
• Tidal waves
When you start your spiritual journey you will experience a richer dream life. Keep a note pad beside your bed so you can record your dreams if you wake up from one in the middle of the night and in the morning.
Most dreams are forgotten and the few that are recalled start to fade from memory as the day progresses. The second type of dream, the profound dream, is not so easily forgotten but they are still worth noting as most detail is fresh in your mind soon after waking up.
I’ve noticed that a different part of the brain is alive during dreams because once, just after waking up from a dream, I felt a shift into waking consciousness ever so subtle-like. It was almost like quickly slipping into another room and closing the door behind you.

Thank you, it does feel like sculpturing pieces of wood. I spend quite a few iterations on the articles before I post. They just have to speak from the heart and be clear always.
Good occupation here. I truly enjoyed what you had to say.
Ha ha, this is a part time occupation. But thankfully my day job is not competing for time with it nearly as much as it used to.
The fact that this instinct cannot be quenched as easily as the others, makes it even more tempting. Burn three pieces of charcoal in a metal container, and place three medium size garlic cloves on top of them. When we humans put things into perspective we will soon realize that science is no different from metaphysics and spirituality.
Thank you for that perspective. Yes, I usually think of mathematics and science as the alphabet and tools of creation. Appreciate your reply.
