Dreams Revisited

I am one of those people who remembers most of my dreams, almost every night.

Sometimes I take out my favorite dream symbol book (The Dream Book by Betty Bethards) and try to decipher what is going on in my sub conscience.

I have discovered that most of my dreams give me insight into how I am feeling and ideas on what I need to do next.

Last year I wrote a couple of post (Dreams and Dream Facts 2) with lots of fun information about dreams.  I have taken the best from each post and today I have the most intriguing facts about dreams.

Common dream that transcend cultural and socio-economic boundaries include falling, flying, nakedness in public, and unpreparedness. These shared dreams arise from experiences and anxieties fundamental to all people.

Studies have shown that your brain waves are more active when you are dreaming than when we are awake.

Not everybody dreams in color - about 12% of sighted people dream exclusively in black and white, and the rest in color. Prior to the 1950's most people dreamed in black and white, but the introduction of color television changed that.

The study of dreams is fascinating to me.  I have been reading about dreams and learning everything I can about them for years.  I find it interesting that all those crazy symbols in our dreams can give us insight into who we are and how we are feeling.

Do you remember your dreams?
