Your mind power is at work day and night, while you are awake and asleep. When you dream, your mind is still functioning, but in a different way than during your waking hours. While many scientists and psychologists have tried to decode their cryptic nature, we still do not fully understand the nature of dreams. Knowing a few basic facts about dreams, some of the discoveries that actually have been made, is a great way to learn how your unconscious mind can boost your mind power during the day.
Dreams occur during rapid eye movement or REM sleep. In 1952, a scientist named Eugene Aserinsky discovered REM sleep by noticing eyes “fluttering” under the eyelids while sleeping. Aserinsky then hooked subjects up to a polygraph machine while sleeping to study brain activity. While knowing the origins of the terminology of REM sleep, being aware of how your brain works will help you boost your mind power. Being able to remember your dreams is also helpful in trying to improve some of your psychic skills.
If you have ever had a sense of unexplained deja vu, it might be due to a vision in a dream. While it might seem subtle, this is a form of clairvoyance, the basis of the psychic abilities of your mind power. It is unlikely that you will remember all of your dreams, but in the morning you can jot down the ones you do recall in a dream journal of some sort. Even if you don’t remember a whole dream, writing down any bits that stand out to you will help you remember what is on your subconscious mind. You might not have the clairvoyance of a medium, but odds are you will have at least some aspect of a dream come true.
There are multiple types of dreams you can have that will leave a variety of impressions on you. As children, we generally place dreams into two categories: good dreams and bad dreams, or nightmares. After developing a more nuanced intellect, it becomes clear to almost any adult that dreams are not so concrete. There is the phenomenon of the epic dream, which often provides a new outlook on an aspect of your life, or can even elucidate something about yourself that you were unaware of. In contrast, you might experience dreams that are reminiscent of abstract art: seemingly no rhyme or reason.
Knowing about your dreams and keeping up with what aspects of your dreams reoccur in your waking life is a great way to help develop your psychic abilities. While you cannot consciously exercise your dreams, you can facilitate them to assist in enhancing your mind power.
