Dreams are amazing! There are so many different things we dream about every night but by the time we wake up, we usually either only remember a little bit of the dream or we forget it entirely.
Dreams are symbolic and can even be trying to tell you something about your life. They are a phenomenon we would all like to understand more about one day.
Here are some amazing facts about dreams that you might not know
You Can’t Read While Dreaming
Not only can you not read while dreaming but you can’t tell the time either. So, if you want to know if you are dreaming, try to read something. If you can’t read anything, then you know you are dreaming.
Also, every time you look at a clock in your dream, you will see a different time and the hands on the clock won’t be moving.
Lucid Dreaming Is Real
Many people who have practiced lucid dreaming have reported that not only can they take control of their dreams but they can even walk through walls, fly, and even go back in time or into different dimensions.
There Have Been Inventions Inspired By Dreams
Many of the things we use today were made because of the inventor dreamt them up. Some include Google, the periodic table, and even the sewing machine. What these inventors did was wrote their dreams down as soon as they woke up and then worked on them — these inventions are what they dreamed of.
Many artists and writers do this too. They dream of an idea for a book or a painting and then wake up, write down their dream, and then work it into their creative venture. Wow!
You Can Dream The Future
Some people have reported that they dream about something and it happens to them later on in life. Some really important people have dreamed of their future.
For example, Abraham Lincoln dreamed that he was going to get assassinated and he did, many of the surviving victims of the 9/11 tragedy dreamed about it happening, Mark Twain actually dreamed about the demise of his brother, and some people dreamed about the Titanic tragedy before it happened.
If these people would have known these dreams were trying to warn them of something that was about to happen, they could have prevented it. Pay attention to your dreams.
Sleep walking Is A Very Real Sleep Disorder
There are some people who sleepwalk and just go to the refrigerator in their sleep to get something to eat. However, there are people who actually do harm to themselves and others when they sleep walk.
Some reports have stated that a man drove 22 miles in his sleep and killed his cousin. These reports have also stated that a woman had sex with 22 strangers while sleepwalking and yet another sleepwalker walked out of the third story window and almost killed themselves.
Another sleepwalker says although he is a nurse in real life, he dreams of being an artist and wakes up to find that he has been painting gorgeous paintings in his sleep.
Only Remember Your Dreams 10 Percent Of The Time
90 percent of the time, you usually don’t even remember your dreams. You have about 5 minutes upon waking to actually write them down so you will remember them. Most of the time, if you haven’t written your dream down by the time you wake up, it is gone from your memory.
Blind People Dream Too
If you were born blind, you won’t see anything in your dreams but you will still feel and use your other senses for dreaming. However, if you ended up blind later in life, you will be able to see your dreams.
Experience Orgasms While Dreaming
When you are lucid dreaming, you can experience touch and other sensations while dreaming. This means you can actually experience an orgasm while you are dreaming just as strong as you do in real life.
Furthermore, you can experience everything more intensely when you are in a lucid dream than in real life
Dream incorporation means that you usually incorporate what is going on around you as you sleep. For example, if someone is in the next room playing an instrument, you might dream that you are at a concert.
