We have looked to our dreams for clues since millennia as to how we should live our waking lives. Even if we think we don't, everyone dreams for much longer each night. According to sleep science, we dream for at least six and a half hours every night.
Why do we dream?
Some experts think that dreams are merely the result of random and meaningless firings of neurons as the sleeping brain clears out debris from the day before and forms new memories.
Neuroscience is convinced that dreams are the brain's ingenious way of joining the dots and suggesting solutions to problems while we sleep. Dreams can show us what we really want and need in life by dramatising our deepest anxieties and desires.
Precognitive dreams that apparently show us an event before it happens has begun to reconsider it's notion by modern sleep research.
The co-author of When Brains Dream Professor Robert Stickgold, wrote in his book that "we all dream so much, our sleeping brains are so good at mulling over waking concerns and the probability of a real life event mirroring a dreamt of one is far higher than we think".
Professor Stickgold goes further to write that "dreams can sometimes predict the future when our brain dreams or show what's happening at that very time somewhere far away. And this happens because unconsciously or consciously, we have information that allows our brain to calculate and envision the possibilities of these events".
Have you ever imagined having a dream with a compelling and clear message that it ends up changing the course of your entire life? Do you believe in the power of dreams to change the course of your life??
Recent research in neuroscience has critically examined what actually happens inside our brain when we dream and findings back up existing theory that dreams aren't merely a by-product of sleep.
Dreams happen and sometimes become the impetus for life-changing decisions!!!
