Why do we see dreams

Why do we see dreams?

Why do we dream?
This question has troubled lots of people for a long period of time. Some of them came up with very good theories while some others went astray.

Because i prefer logic over intuition the most logical theories about dreams appealed to me the most. Today i am going to tell you about some of these logical dream theories.

1- Dreaming about your worries and concerns

There are many reasons you see certain images and experience certain feelings in your dreams. If you were concerned about something too much to the extent that your subconscious mind couldn't let go of it even when you are asleep then you might see that thing in your dream.

If for example you were worried about an important job interview then you might dream that you are taking a test or failing an exam.

2- Dreams and unmet needs

your dream may be a method your mind uses to fulfill its unmet needs. For example if you went to sleep while feeling very Hungary you might find yourself dreaming about Food !!

Your subconscious mind in such a case is offering you that dream in order to make you feel better. Here is another example, if you hate your boss then you might find yourself beating him in a dream or even beating someone who resembles him.

3- Your mind storing memories

According to one theory dreams can be the mind's own way of storing memories of the events that took place throughout the day, this is one reason why you might feel really bad if you didn't sleep well.

As your mind stores those new memories in place you tend to see the symbols and the code your mind uses in the form of dreams.

4- A part of the learning process

According to another theory dreams can be an integral part of the learning process where the brain rehearses and adapts to newly learned skills. This theory claims that dreams are used as a training ground to practice important skills related to survival.

5- Your subconscious mind is thinking

Don't you sometimes get solutions to your problems while sleeping?
Some people consider dreams the thoughts of the subconscious mind. As you sleep your conscious mind becomes dormant but your subconscious mind remains awake.

Thus the thoughts of your subconscious mind can be seen in the form of dreams.

6- Dreams can be messages

dreams can be messages sent to you by your subconscious in order to motivate you to take an action,solve a problem or get rid of something that has been bothering you.

If for example you have been ignoring your goals for a long period of time then your subconscious mind might use dreams in order to motivate you to move.

The subconscious mind does this using emotions. It triggers some of your emotions and as a result you find yourself motivated.

7- Dreams can be visions

Many religions state that dreams can be visions that reveal things about the future.

Of course they don't say that all dreams are visions but they just say that some of them are. In fact this doesn't contradict the science of dream interpretation at all.

Lucid dreaming

A lucid dream is the dream you see while you know that you are dreaming. In a typical lucid dream you discover that you are dreaming but you don't wake up!!, some people go beyond that and even control their lucid dream by doing whatever they like in the dream.
