The subconscious mind and dreams, What's the connection

What's the connection between the subconscious mind and dreams?
Is the subconscious mind the one responsible for the dreams we get?
Can dreams be understood in the light of the relationship between them and the subconscious mind?

In this article i will answer all of these questions by telling you about the relationship between the subconscious mind and your dreams

How the subconscious mind affects your dreams

In my previous article how the subconscious mind works i explained how all of your past experiences and beliefs get stored in your subconscious mind.

When you become asleep your conscious mind sleeps as well but your subconscious mind remains awake. At this point the true connection between dreams and the subconscious mind starts to appear.

For example, If you were concerned about a problem then most probably your subconscious mind will show it to you in your dreams in order to remind you of it or to help you solve it. (see The meaning of your dreams)

The subconscious mind thinks in the form of symbols and metaphors and that's why you shouldn't be surprised to find such metaphors in your dreams in the form of symbols. The thoughts of your subconscious mind are presented in your dreams in the form of symbols. (For more information see dream interpretation and the subconscious mind)

How dreams affect your subconscious mind

Just as your subconscious mind affects your dreams they too can affect the subconscious mind as well!!

One of the theories that attempts to explain dreams says that dreams have the purpose of organizing the information you received throughout the day in your subconscious mind.

So your dreams can be the librarian who arranges the books in your subconscious mind.
Dreams can also result in a change in your emotions and so affect your subconscious mind.

If you had a dream that affected your emotions to a great extent then this might affect your behavior when you wake up and this means that your dreams affected your subconscious mind.
