Nightmares – Your Richest Resource for Personal Growth

It wasn’t long before I noticed several large bugs crawling around. I tried to get rid of them, but the harder I tried, the more of them came out. Soon they were everywhere – spiders, huge bedbugs and ticks, centipedes, worms and quite a few things I’ve never even seen before. They were crawling all over everything, including me. I grew more and more distressed as I kept wondering how I was going to clean out these critters. At one point I thought of calling an exterminator. I looked into my wallet and saw that I didn’t have enough money for that. Oh man, what was I going to do?

New Links Between Lucid Dreaming And Psychosis Could Revive Dream Therapy In Psychiatry

Lucid dreaming – when you are aware you are dreaming – is a hybrid state between sleeping and being awake.

Dream Recall

Dream recall is simply the capability of remembering your dreams. Good dream recall is frequently described as the first step towards lucid dreaming. Improved recall increases awareness of dreams in general; with limited dream recall, any lucid dreams you have can be forgotten completely.To improve dream recall, most people keep a dream journal, writing down any dreams remembered as soon as the dreamer awakens. The purchases of a digital audio recorder can also be very helpful. This will allow the dreamer to record their dreams as quickly as possible as there is a strong tendency to forget what one has dreamed. For best recall, the waking dreamer should keep eyes closed while trying to remember their dream. Describing your dream as if you are still in it can help the writer to recall the events of their dream more accurately Dream recall can also be improved by remaining still after waking up. This may have something to do with REM atonia (the condition of REM sleep in which the motor neurons are not stimulated and thus the body’s muscles do not move). Likewise, the dreamer may be able to recall certain events of their dream by testing different sleeping positions. Another easy technique to help improve dream recall is to repeat to yourself (in thoughts or out loud) “I will remember my dreams,” before falling asleep.

Dreams involving excretory functions may also refer to letting go of the past and embracing a new lifestyle, changing one’s old habits and way of thinking.

The Haunted House Dream

Haunted house dreams are very complex dreams and not always as easy to interpret as other dreams. They are actually two dreams in one, a house dream and a ghost dream. Either of these dreams are rather complex on their own and have many clues and symbols associated with the interpretation of their meaning. For this reason I will be presenting this article in four parts. This, the introduction where we will discuss some psychological and spiritual thoughts, as well as things you should look for and remember about your dream. The house, different aspects and symbols and how they pertain to your dream. The Ghost that is haunting you in your dream, and finally I will present a couple of examples along with a possible interpretation

The House in Your Dreams

To see a house in your dream represents your own soul and self. Particular rooms in the house point to a specific aspect of your psyche. Dreams about different rooms often relate to hidden a region of the conscious mind and different aspects of your personality.

The Ghosts in Your Dreams

Psychological Meaning: The shadowy ghosts of your dreams symbolize those aspects of yourself that you fear. But it is fear itself that makes them frightening. Expose these dark lurking images into the bright light of day and you will realize that it is only your own fear that makes them nightmares. You must understand that there are many, different energies that make up your psyche. Your dream also reflects your own fears about death and dying. Freud thought that ghosts are actually the visions of people who are afraid of death. In this sense, the ghost would not be real at all but rather a projection of our subconscious mind.
