Great to be writing again! Hope you’re all doing good. Just finished a class with one of my students and that has sparked me to write about dreams! Where and what is the connection you may wonder? Well, tell me how many of you ever experienced having bad dreams before your exams?? I wonder if I have caught you off guard? 🙂 No worries, at least most of us had bad dreams before sitting for a major exam. It’s pretty normal I suppose. Hmm, why do we have these dreams at the first place? And why must it be particularly bad? Why? why? I am no expert in giving you the interpretation of your dreams so I shall stay clear out of it. But I think I am able to express my own point of view. Well my explanation is pretty simple based on years of experience in dreaming (LOL!) I sincerely believe that your subconscious mind (again!) is such a powerful tool that it is able to amplify disturbing emotions that constantly nags you into something dreadful or worse still, into life in your dreams?? We know to a certain extent that the subconscious mind is very active when we sleep. Hence, whatever that has been plaguing our thoughts throughout the day becomes the subject of our own nightmares at night.
This student of mine was forgetting her facts and she looked dull the whole class. I could see that she was not her usual self. Finally, she revealed that in the morning she had a dream. In that dream, all her relatives, were scolding her for not scoring well in her exams. That in turn made her sulky. I imagined that the dream was so real that it freaked her out. The best (or the worst part) she forgot her facts!! In other words, she has decided to allow the dream to overpower her and if it prolongs, the dream will become a reality!! NOOO!!!
So, in this case the subconscious mind controlled her dreams and in turn the dream has affected her subconscious mind. Sounds like a reversible reaction. Just like in Haber process :). The point is, to become successful, you are NOT going to allow negative thoughts to seep into your mind like a slow poison. You are NOT going to allow negativity conquer you by any means. You are NOT allowing any form of emotional clutters get into your way. Instead, use your nightmares as a stepping stone to be better from where you are now. Challenge the dream and prove that not all dreams become a reality. You shall control your own path. When you’re facing a hurdle, just say I WILL DO IT!! and you will.
