|Dream on!.... well not yet, but have you ever had
dreams that you were sure had something to do with something
you needed to know,... but what was it? The annoying thing
about most of our dreams is that we tend to forget them all
too easily. Then there are other dreams that keep coming back
in the same or similar form, often they get quite scary
And what about dreams that you remember clearly and
then one day, something happens and there is your dream,
exactly as you dreamed it, happening right in front of your
I have read many books about dreams but for some
reason, they never seemed to make sense of every sort of
dream. There are books that offer interpretations on what our
dreams mean,... well, I may poke a few holes in some of these
guides so if you really like using them, get off the bus

Still with me? OK, so every day, your mind picks up loads
of information about life and your position in it. When you go
to sleep, your brain goes into clerical mode. It sifts through
every second of the day's record and files it all away.
Remember the three levels of consciousness? Well here is where
they begin to make more sense; things you need at a moment's
notice will be filed in Forward-conscious, things you might
need to recall at some point will be put a bit deeper, in
Back-conscious, and the rest (all of it) will then be
shovelled into Sub-conscious, getting it out of there takes a
lot of effort, like hypnosis.
Added to this filng process,
there is a comparison of records going on with previously
filed memory and some things that were once considered not
worth much at the time, may well become far more important and
now be stored somewhere more accessable. In order to do this,
the brain runs a whole load of little role-plays to see what
fits where and it is this process that becomes a dream. It
also explains why, after a night's sleep, something or
somebody you had long "forgotten", is suddenly in the front of
your mind. To be accurate, you never forget anything, your
brain just files it away somewhere obscure.
also have a more EMPATHIC nature when asleep, you may also
pick up thought patterns from outside your imediate
environment. As I said before, time tends to get a bit lost in
this and it is quite possible that a mind can pick up all
manner of other people's thoughts, calculate what their plans
are, what the results of their decisions might be and then
place the complete scenario in memory.
If all those people
do as they intended, the scenario will very probably happen
very much like the "memory"
Then there are dreams like some
get that actually give real images, particularly of disasters.
Here I would refer you to that "collective conscious". What
happens there is way beyond finite boundaries and does not
have a complete explanation that will fit here. In very simple
terms, the "collective conscious" is not in any prticular
material form, hence it is not bound by the confines of time,
space or anything relative to matter. It is therefore quite
possible to perceive things that are long since past or yet to
come. The one thing I have found about all such dreams is that
no amount of effort will alter the outcome because they are a
vision of the result of all influencial decisions taken by
everybody. As such they tend to be borne as more of a curse by
those who experience them.
If you have problems with such
dreams, Email me for more specific advice.
Dreams are the
brain working at it's fullest potential, day dreaming will
knock out your perceptions of the real world, I know because I
tend to do it! But they are essential to all of us, whether
you remember them or not!
