I have crazy dreams.

Mansion

Do you remember your dreams? I do. They’re vivid and intriguing. I told you before, I got the idea for my book from a dream.

For some reason, I dream about buildings quite a bit. They’re always abandoned buildings with lots of floors and elevators that don’t work, or decrepit bathrooms. I’m not afraid when I have these dreams. In fact, I don’t even question what’s happening, I simply move through it. Funny, maybe that means something. Our brains process life while we sleep, especially in REM, and many times life can feel like an abandoned building, filled with emptiness and things that don’t work. But truthfully, we need to move through it. Find your way out – and by that I mean don’t give up.

Just because we’re in a dark place, doesn’t mean we’re without hope.

When I dream something I don’t understand, I use it as an opportunity to self-reflect. I know it can be tempting to dismiss something like a dream as nonsense, or forget it as soon as we start our day, but I believe the ability to dream is a gift. A dream is a glimpse into the things we suppress and refuse to feel. I’m grateful for dreams.

So next time you have a crazy dream, try dissecting it a little. You might be surprised what you learn about yourself – or what ideas come to you when you do.

Keep dreaming!

  1. As a teen I had night terrors. Then I watched a movie called Dreamscape in 1984. A movie about a guy going into your dream and helping you . It is kind of like The Matrix where you can get abilities and changing the dream in your favor. After that I looked forward to dreaming and flying in them. Oh and that house looks like something from the video game Silent Hill!

    1. I don’t really have night terrors, although my dreams are certainly very strange. I think I probably had them as a kid, but they weren’t bad. That’s really cool that you were able to become aware while you were dreaming. I always look forward to my dreams.
      It does look like a Silent Hill house!!!
