There you are, drifting, floating, experience something so incrediblyÂ ecstatic you wonderÂ how you didn’t discover this before. Everywhere your eyes drift you findÂ somethingÂ to enjoyÂ gazing at. Every sound you hearÂ allowsÂ your ears to create a feeling ofÂ pure love. Suddenly everything starts to fade. The images are pulled away, feelings of bliss and peaceÂ slowly turn and spin until there is nothing but awkward confusion, and there is something else, something just out of reach. What? Huh? Where…?
Aw, crap. You wake up. You were dreaming. It was a great dream. Why did you have to wake up? What was it about, anyways? Oh well. You roll over, and go back to sleep. Maybe in the morning you might be able to remember something about the dream, or perhaps only that you’d had one.Â Perhaps you share with many others the trait of never being able to remember your dreams. “Do you have dreams?” Your friends may ask. “Uh, yea, but I never remember them.” You answer.
Well, if you don’t make the effort to remember your dreams, you are missing out on perhaps one of the greatest toolsÂ around for you to receive insights that canÂ give you an edge not only in your relationships, but in your goals, your future, and even your direction towards the afterlife.
There are several theories as to why we dream, the meaning of dreams, what causes dreams.Â It’s generally agreed upon that there are five types of dreams.Â I’ll cover those in another article. For now, let’s discuss the importance of getting into the habit of being able to easily remember your dreams.
Despite all the varied theories as to the purpose of our dreams, there is plenty of evidence of them being helpful to people in the past. Robert Louis Stevensen is said to have been able to harness his dreams to come up with stories for his wonderful novelsÂ containing deep psychological and moralÂ significance. Kekule,Â the German Chemist, was able to discoverÂ the chemical formula for Benzene during aÂ dream of a snake eatingsÂ his tail. Even the invention ofÂ theÂ modern sewing machine, byÂ Elias Howe, was inspired by a dream of hostile natives throwing strangely shaped spears.Â
So how can you tap into this power?Â Firstly, as you realize that dreams contain powerful information, you will naturally be more inclined to recall them when you wake up. And the more you get into the habit of taking a few moments when you wake up to review the nights dreams, the more they will stand out in your mind.
Next is to create a dream journal. For now, you don’t need to worry about how toÂ understand your dreams, the only important thing now is that you learn to remember them. The easiest way is to create a dream journal. Nothing complicated. Just whenever you wake up, jot down a few ideas from your dreams. Simple facts. The situation, people, what was happening. And make sure to thank yourself. That way you can more easily get into the habit of being able to remember key parts of your dreams.Â This skill will naturally get better over time as you learn how rich and wonderful your dreams are. Once youÂ can harness theÂ abilityÂ to remember your dreams, the next step is to find out what they mean. More on that later. For now, just focus on spending a few minutes a day on something that can naturally turn into a lifelong and powerful resource.
