Dreaming. Something we all do; something we so often forget.
Some people claim they never dream. As we apparently re-sort the day in our minds during dreaming, people who don’t dream would forget so much and eventually go crazy. So much for the claims of “I never dream”.
However I’m a world class dreamer. Mine can even wake me, or does my body wake me and I just happen to be dreaming? Whatever is really occupying my mind comes out in my dreams. So often it is work related.
When you think back into your dreams and how jumbled they can be, (last night before I woke for the last time I was being sent by my niece to run a branch of a software house in Chile!) I marvel at how the brain is probably making all those amazing links it makes to get us to remember, make connections, store different memories of the same thing in different ways so they are retrievable under different circumstances. (I’m still wondering about Chile – ok?)
Some people believe dreams can tell the future. Well maybe we are so busy processing thoughts and memories that we put the tiny clues together and our dreaming intuition shows us what it has worked out?
The advice to “sleep on it” for a problem is so often good advice.
I wonder do I actually solve issues by dreaming about them?
