Do you often find yourself waking up and feeling that you had a long night? This might be due to the fact that you have dreamed a lot. But, what have you dreamed of? You might often wake up frustrated because you cannot remember what you have dreamed of. So, you are probably asking yourself why can’t you remember your dreams? Where are all those dreams stored? Is this a sign from your subconscious?

Learning about dreams, sleep and memories has become a little obsession for me. For the last few months, I have studied sleep patterns, rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, dream patterns, and vivid dreaming. I became more aware of the complexity of the domain, but I have also learned a lot of new things. I have finally understood why I do not remember my night dreams.

But Firstly, What Is a Dream?

A dream is made of a sequence of thoughts, images, and sensations. They all create a dream, the activity that happens in our minds during our night sleep. The dream is the result of specific regions of the brain that are active during the night. In fact, all brain regions are active during dreaming.

When Are You Dreaming?

It is important to note that you do not dream all the time you are asleep, but only a small fraction. There are four sleep stages and two main categories: non-REM and REM sleep. So, non-REM sleep has three phases and REM sleep only one. Dreams occur only during REM sleep, but you have to go through all three phases of non-REM sleep to reach the REM sleep phase.

You go from phase one, when it is easy to be woken up, to phase two where you in the light sleep phase. During the second phase, your body is preparing for deep sleep by slowing your heart rate and dropping your body temperature. Stage three is about deep sleep. If someone wakes you up during this phase, you will feel a little bit disoriented.

So, dreams occur only during REM sleep, after 90 minutes you have fallen asleep. Babies spend about 50% of their sleep in the REM stage, while adults only 20%. And blind people dream too, only their dreams include more auditory and kinesthetic elements than visual ones.

Why Don’t You Remember Your Night Dreams?

Is your subconscious trying to hide something from you? Well, it depends. Not being able to remember what you have dreamed of last night can have many causes.

REM Sleep Is Not Occurring One cause for not remembering your night dreams can be the fact that REM sleep is not occurring at all. Dreams only happen during the REM stage, so if you do not manage to go into the REM sleep phase, you are actually not dreaming at all. Alcohol is one of the substances that suppress REM sleep. Suppressing REM sleep is also a side effect of medications like antidepressants and substances like cocaine and amphetamine.

Another cause could be the fact that you do not wake up from REM sleep, but you go to one or two stages before opening your eyes.

ARCHANGEL MICHAEL – Begin Dreaming Now! – Building Your World – 6-10-18 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age Of Gaia

In my reading on June 6, 2018, Archangel Michael asked us all to begin dreaming big, dreaming Nova Earth, now.

Archangel Michael: Begin your dreaming about Nova Earth, about the practicality of what life looks like, feels like and tastes like. It is often very difficult to envision an entire planet in reconstitution and rebirth.

http://goldenageofgaia.com/2018/06/10/archangel-michael-begin-dreaming-now/

It is difficult to envision at times, a million or a billion individuals and groups falling in love with their own sacred self, of awakening to their own power of creation and creativity. It is hard to imagine billions of people declaring peace.

So where we ask you to spend some time thinking, envisioning, imagining and luxuriating is in the construction and the texture of what your world, your Vancouver world, your British Columbia world, your Canada world, your West Coast world, your Icelandic world… What it looks like.

And it isn’t knowing how governments, for example, will be shifted or reconstructed. It is simply the knowing that these shifts and reconstructions, reconfigurations are taking place.

It is about walking on the streets and seeing the lines of worry and fear and being beaten down erased from the faces of the people on the sidewalk.

It is about being in a store or a grocery store and knowing that it is being filled with healthy nutritious food and that people have enough money – yes, that currency thing – in their pockets that they can buy that food and that they can thrive.

That the children are kept safe and that they are exposed to a broad spectrum of learning, of expansion. This new generation is wide awake and the education systems are doing their best to try to shut them down. So envision education that is different and children that are laughing and smiling and free to be children.

Spend time physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally building your world because this – what you will do in your undertakings and our undertakings – needs to be reflective of that vision, of that beauty.

Steve: Well it’s not until somebody speaks that vision that it begins its journey to become real, right? It isn’t until I say, for instance, that I’m going to give a universal basic income of $100,000 to each Canadian that both and other things inspired by that start is coming into view.

AAM: But it is not merely the vision of the money going to Canadians. It is the idea of liberation, of freedom, of the latitude of each person to have flexibility in their choices. And inside of that is the paradigm of honouring free choices.

So it is not that you are standing there and saying, “I am giving you a universal income so you will pay this much for rent and pay attention to your children’s education and you are going to buy the right food.”

No. Inside of that, the vision is truly the honouring, not only of free will and free choices, but the innate intelligence… Will some people spend foolishly? Well, yes, but only in your opinion. They may think a bright red bicycle is the best decision they’ve ever made.

So it is that permission and the vision that people can make kind and loving and intelligent choices. So it is truly anchoring the vision.

And if it isn’t talked about, if it isn’t developed, if it isn’t nurtured, in a personal way of what it means to you, starting the conversation, then when people say, “We are going to build a New Earth,” it has no substance; it has no legs.

We are encouraging you to put out the ideas.

Steve: That’s good. That’s what I need to know. (1)

Whether you realize it or not, we are all dreaming the world into being, although most people have lost the ability to guide the dream, and are, as a result, at the mercy of the collective nightmare.

The Shaman lives in a dream, but not the kind of dream that belongs in the domain of sleep. Shamans understand the waking dream, and can change the dream by changing their relationship with the luminous strands that make up the energetic realm. This is how creation happens.

The aborigines of Australia believe that it was in dreamtime that the world was created, and follow the dream lines when they go on a vision quest. For the shaman in the Americas, the task is to dream with their eyes open – to envision the possible before they envision the probable. It’s not a fantasy or hallucination, but rather the ultimate nature of reality itself, where one can actually steer and guide the dream.

The dreamtime – the creative matrix – does not exist in a place outside of us, but rather within. It infuses all matter and energy, connecting every creature, every rock, every star, and every ray of light or bit of cosmic dust. For the Earthkeepers, dreaming reality is not only an ability but a duty, one we must perform with grace and love so our grandchildren will inherit a world of peace and abundance.

Students of shamanism learn how to awaken the ability to dream with their eyes open and share in the power to co-create reality with the help of the Universe. As they begin to flex the muscles of courage, they let go of their limiting beliefs and push past their fears. They can then begin to create truly original dreams that germinate in the soul and bear fruit in their life. The nature of the cosmos is such that whatever dream you have about yourself and the world will become reality.

The shamans I studied with in the Andes and the Amazon believe that we can only access this power by raising our level of consciousness. When we do so, we become aware that we’re like a drop of water in a vast, divine ocean, distinct yet immersed in something much larger than ourselves. It’s only when we experience our connection to Infinity that we’re able to dream powerfully.

But it requires a visceral understanding to experience it in every cell of our body. In fact, the intellectual understanding of our ability to create reality forestalls the kind of dreaming we’re capable of. If we don’t get beyond the mere intellectual aspect, we’ll end up lowering the bar and creating a far less glorious and beautiful experience than we’re capable of crafting.

Although the mind resists it, the fact is we all have a choice between having the life we want or creating the reasons why we can’t have that life. You can have joy and peace, or you can have that big black bag full of all the sorrowful incidents and accidents that happened to you in your childhood or in your last relationship.

You can have your wounds, or you can have your glory. You can live the life of a victim, burdened by the traumas of your past, or you can live the life of a hero. But you can’t do both. If you want to feel empowered, you need to make a conscious decision to dream a sacred dream and practice courage.

Dreaming is a natural thing to do for all humans while they sleep. It is well known that dreaming allows the mind to process the day that has gone before and any problems, questions or issues that may have arisen. Dreaming also allows the dreamer to process their thoughts and feelings about themselves in relation to the world around them.

Sometimes, however, dreams may seem very real and that is because they are! Many people astral travel as they sleep, and that is nothing new. But some others, particularly those who are awakened to their spiritual selves, work for the greater good and actually perform acts of service whilst in their sleep. They also meet with their spirit and angel guides to learn lessons or to receive information, and some even engage with spirits or darker energy to try to keep them at bay.

This last practice is dangerous because the human spirit is very vulnerable when it is out in the ethereal world, and if the conscious mind is not consciously aware there is a real danger of something untoward happening and the person’s energies being compromised. People who are aware of their higher purpose will intentionally perform their lightwork consciously and protect themselves and their energies accordingly, but some people’s souls are so attuned to their higher purpose that they find ways to engage in lightwork when the body is sleeping and their energies are potentially unprotected.

If you have very real dreams, there is a chance that you are astral travelling and meeting with other spirits or souls whilst asleep. To make sure your energies are protected and that you get back into your body safely before awakening, ask the Creator or your angel guides for protection. Here is an invocation you can say before retiring every night.

“Mother, Father God, Creator of All That Is, I hold the intention that my energies be protected whilst I am asleep. I call upon my angel guides to protect my spirit as it travels, keeping it grounded in my body to allow it to find its way home again. Protect me as I engage with my guides, soul family and other spirits, and keep my aura and chakras protected from psychic attack and transfer of energies. For my highest and best, thank you it is done.”

I AM Lord Melchizadek

Betina Vasquez – Why We Dream – How the Mind Processes Information – 1-31-15

lucid-dreaming1

Written by Betina Vasquez, The Spirit Science, January 31, 2015

It’s safe to say that sleep and the ability to retain new information or learn new skills is intertwined. Imagine, the day before a big exam and we study all night losing out on precious sleep, possibly resulting in lower test results than we had hoped for because there was no other choice than to pull an “all-nighter.”

If there’s one thing I hear people say the most, it’s that everyone has difficulty falling sleep. With our minds occupied on what we did today or what we need to do tomorrow, technological gadgets, and external distractions it’s no wonder our capacity to relax is depleted, especially before bed.

Sleep-DeprivationIn the medical community and our personal lives it is well-known that restful sleep is significant in maintaining a sound mind and able body, yet plenty of people are affected from a lack of it, in fact about 50-70 million Americans according to the National Institutes of Health. How do we complete our tasks for the day? We simply push through somehow and we’re missing out in ways.

For nearly a century we have wondered why we dream, what is its purpose? How do they influence our waking lives? There seem to be a revolving door of hypothesis, experimentation, and articles on the subject.

Studies have shown that deep sleep and napping throughout the day can be helpful with mental cognizance and if improved or experimented with, have the potential to produce unexpected results.  One such study explains how dreaming is a function of the minds ability to sift through valuable information, which in turn shape our lives.

Scientists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) conduct the following experiment:

At the outset, the authors hypothesized that dreaming about a learning experience during nonrapid eye movement (NREM) sleep would lead to improved performance on a hippocampus-dependent spatial memory task. (The hippocampus is a region of the brain responsible for storing spatial memory.)

To test this hypothesis, the investigators had 99 subjects spend an hour training on a “virtual maze task,” a computer exercise in which they were asked to navigate through and learn the layout of a complex 3D maze with the goal of reaching an endpoint as quickly as possible. Following this initial training, participants were assigned to either take a 90-minute nap or to engage in quiet activities but remain awake. At various times, subjects were also asked to describe what was going through their minds, or in the case of the nappers, what they had been dreaming about. Five hours after the initial exercise, the subjects were retested on the maze task.

What the researches discovered is that the improvement of individuals who did not rest after completing the maze task for a second time, showed no significant increase in their ability to complete it even while actively thinking about the maze beforehand. And those who did sleep, but did not dream about the maze also showed little to no increase in their ability to complete it a second time. However, those who did dream about the maze, and quite vividly, did significantly better on the task a second time around.

Of particular note, say authors [Robert Stickgold, PhD, Director of the Center for Sleep and Cognition at BIDMC and Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Erin Wamsley, PhD, a postdoctoral [researcher] at BIDMC and Harvard Medical School] , the subjects who performed better were not more interested or motivated than the other subjects. But, they say, there was one distinct difference that was noted.

“The subjects who dreamed about the maze had done relatively poorly during training,” explains Wamsley. “Our findings suggest that if something is difficult for you, it’s more meaningful to you and the sleeping brain therefore focuses on that subject — it ‘knows’ you need to work on it to get better, and this seems to be where dreaming can be of most benefit.”

What we see here is a noticeable difference in the way information is collected within the mind, based on our ability to dream.  It not only absorbs experiences, information, and data from the outside, but will also transfer that information in abstract ways to build our dreamscapes. If waking life experiences are relatively important, difficult, or meaningful for us, there’s a higher chance it will appear in our dreams and if analyzed or reflected upon will bring incredible insight into our progression as human beings.

Dreamscape by elestrial

Ironically, our ability to learn and remember new information is not solely dependent on dreaming itself, though it does play a vital role in terms of the brain’s physiology. With the mind taking on multiple tasks at once; consolidating data and directing it to other areas for further integration, it is simply unbelievable how perfected this function has evolved to be.

Wamsley [points out], ”Every day, we are gathering and encountering tremendous amounts of information and new experiences,” she adds. “It would seem that our dreams are asking the question, ‘How do I use this information to inform my life?’”

So, with the information that we now know how can we apply this to our lives? What steps can we take toward healthy sleeping habits? Below are some helpful tips that may help you re-learn how to put yourself to sleep and bring about some fun experimentation with dream interpretation. You know, if that’s your thing.  🙂

1. Turn off electronics 1 hour before you go to sleep. This is important, because of our pineal gland. The pineal gland is sensitive to both light and dark and when we stimulate our senses with bright objects such as computer monitors, phones, or televisions before bed the pineal gland is unable to release the hormone melatonin which regulates our sleep and wake cycles.

2. Take a hot shower or bath prior to bedtime as this will relax the body, soak for at least 20 minutes. Add bath salts or candles as an added bonus.

3. Read a book or magazine and avoid topics that could stimulate your imagination in a negative way such as violence or horror.

4. Research natural sleep-aides, I found a valuable source here.

5. Perform Progressive Muscle Relaxation which is a systematic technique that manages stress and produces deep relaxation. Simply tense and release every part of your body for a couple minutes before going to sleep.

6. Keep a log of your dreams and though it may be difficult to remember every detail at first, that’s not necessarily the point. If you manage to jot down a couple key ideas, this can shed some light on some core issues you may be needing clarification on.

7. Refrain from eating right before bedtime as this stimulates the digestive system and can interrupt your ability to relax and fall asleep. A little snack or warm lemon water is harmless, so long as it’s not a huge meal.

healthydelicious.ca

I would also like to impart that while your ritual before bed is essential in helping you sleep more soundly, a morning ritual will play an important role in the flow of your day. Consider waking up and thinking about what you’re grateful for, drinking a nice cup of hot tea with lemon and honey, watching the sun rise, taking a walk out in nature, or simply meditating for 10 minutes. This can all be done with some simple preparation and mindfulness.

I wish you the best in your journey and encourage questions, thoughts, and comments about the ways you’re re-learning how to fall asleep and wake up.

Your friend,

Dreaming – The Creator Writings – 11-3-14

When the dreamer dreams, nothing is impossible; flying, amazing feats of strength, meeting those who have crossed over or any number of things is completely normal and attainable.  The human mind possesses the capacity to create galaxies, to spin yarns of exquisite beauty (or terror) to show you exactly what your full potential truly is.  The only difference between the sleeping and waking mind is the ability to know you can accomplish these thing in a conscious, waking state.  Please remember; anything you can dream, you can create.  Free will is yours! ~ Creator
