Fairyland of dreams
Do you often see the same dream but do not understand what it means, or you cannot remember it? Want to find out and to understand what special meaning this dream carries for you? Then it is necessary to turn to psychology and to analyze in details the principles of how and why eventually people have dreams and see dreams when the sleep? Is the dream psychological result of the activity of our brain or it is intuitive thinking, or it is something magic and mystical? Can you picture to yourself that the dream is only your secret fairyland and you running into it every night just to get rest there, imagine better life?
There are few different theories that explain what dream truly is. In the world there is a very important science that studies our dreams and a lot of questions that appears when people start to think about this topic - oneirology. But in the end this discipline has the pieces of features of neurology, psychology, and even literature in it. But the main question does not provide an answer - why almost all people have dreams?
There is no right and convincing answer that solve this dream puzzle yet, but there are some interesting hypotheses that maybe will help to usual people to understand why they get to a dream fairyland. Here are 3 most interesting and possible.
1. Theory of “Hidden desires”.
One of the first psychologists, who began to research the meaning of our mind, was the founder of the science of psychoanalysis – Professor Sigmund Freud. After his personal analyzing the dreams of 100's of his different clients, Professor Freud very fast developed an interesting theory that is till this moment held by some of his loyal followers. The theory says: “The dream - is a pressed together peoples desires and wanting and also hidden and secretly covered aspirations of the people.”
In our dreams, according to the theory of Freud, people see what they really want to achieve in the moment or in their life generally, literally or maybe even symbolically. For the example, if a woman or man had a scary dream that his or her mother died in it, it should not literally mean that he unconsciously wants to see her dead or even to kill his mom. Freud means and interprets this like a conflict between parent and her child in real life, and this question has a simple and very effective solution. Mother and son should discover each other’s feelings.
By making researches of dreams, the founder and the father of the psychoanalytic - Freud helped his patience to pull out their very deep and fully hidden fears and desires that they themselves did not know. So maybe the first you need to do to understand the mystic fairyland you got every night is to think and to remember what have you see in your dreams?
2. Storing the files in the end of the day.
This theory is directly opposite to a theory that called “reverse learning theory”. According to this scientific theory - getting to the fairyland of dreams is the normal everyday process that helps us in a way of organizing and also very important storing different information that we’ve got after the day. In favor of this psychological and neurological idea says several scientific researches. They that show that people better remember the information that was received by people just before going to sleep and to rest. A lot of scientists have a belief that only dreams can in the end help the people to fully understand and qualitatively organize the information acquired by them during the day.
Another confirmation of this hypothesis is the recent interesting researches.
During these researches was found out that if the person will fell into a deep sleep very soon after any unpleasant event happened with him during the day time, then woke up, he will still remember this event and feel unpleasant as if it happened a few minutes ago. Therefore, if there is suspicion of trauma, it is better not to give the victim to sleep maximum amount of time. Keeping the victim awake without getting in a fairyland of dreams will help her to erase the memory of unpleasant experiences.
3. Theory of questions and answers
This psychological research developed by a very famous professor of the University of Harvard named Deirdre Barrett. This great idea is quiet similar to already existed idea of the Finnish scientist called Antti Revonsuo. This Professor - Barrett believes that our mind in the dreams works like a type of a special individual person theater. So on a stage you actually can look for all the needed answers to every your important questions and solve some of the problems in the dream with the brain work more efficiently because it is able to organize very quickly a form of new associative lines.
Professor of Harvard makes her conclusions based on the scientific research, during which it was found out that if a person before going to bed will put a certain task for the next day, then after waking up in the morning, he decides to start to do and to solve it faster than those people who are just simply asked to solve it, without giving the possibility of “spy” the answer in a dream.
Dreams and out fairyland where we go in the night are nothing strange, they are the mirror of our mind, soul or brain work, feelings and emotions, intuition. Probably there is no right answer, but every person that looks for it just should ask themselves what they feel and what they truly think about their dream.
