Waking Dreams The Key to Spark Up your Imagination and Creativity

The gods and goddesses of ancient Greece appeared to mortals through visionary dreams. They have dream temples where they perform sacred rituals to talk with the gods. The decisions they made in life are consulted first to ensure success in whatever plan that they have. Thus their life is greatly affected by what the gods will say.

Nowadays, dreams are ordinary psychological phenomenon that takes place while sleeping although there is also a type of dream that occurs when one is awake. Why and how it occurs has been posed with several answers through the theories and studies done by psychologists and other experts. According to Sigmund Freud, the unconscious of an individual can mingle into his consciousness which can give his dreams sexual coloring. What it means is explained in psychoanalysis and dream interpretation although it can be subjected to diverse and at times conflicting meaning.

You are not probably in deep sleep when you dream. Dreams can take place when you sleep lightly or just before you fully awaken which means that the dreams you remember after you wake up takes place in light sleep. Some authorities and experts believe that you always dream when you sleep but most of it does not leave impression on the waking mind. This is the reason why you tend to forget your dreams.

Psychologists however have come up with the methods for the possibility of waking dreams or remembering the events that took place while dreaming as well as the included signs and symbols that can lead you to the twists and turns of your unconsciousness. Dreams can lead you to the portals of imagination and creativity that can help you to discover and make use of your full potential.

There are several inventions and work of art that have been inspired by dreams. You can also open up your storehouse of imagination and creativity by using dreams to come up with something that would help you to make a difference in the world we are living in. It could be a new invention, insight or knowledge.

Waking dreams from sleep to reality can be done by exerting consistent effort to recall and record the dream experiences so that the waking mind can find and draw out its real meaning and message that it wants to convey. Remembering your dreams is a matter of attention and concentration. The more frequent you do it, the easier it will be. Consciously controlling your dreams is one of your capacities which need consistent practice. Dreams usually come in series so it is preferable to record it or put it in a journal for easier organization and access.

The question you want to answer or problem you want to solve can be given the needed response through signs, symbols and images. Knowledge of what it means can help a lot to draw out the insights from your dreams. Its meaning can be drawn through several sources which may include books, magazines and internet. Some interpretation may not be as authentic as the others so be careful of what or which you will believe in.

Your everyday actual experiences are linked to your dreams so be sure to have an open critical mind to bridge the dreams to your waking mind. Too much concentration however can cause strain and fatigue to your mind especially if you are under stress so just take it easy. Relax and have fun!
