A dream is defined as: “a succession of images, thoughts or emotions passing through the mind during sleep. Sometimes their presence is entertaining, other times terrifying. What purpose do dreams serve? How can these images, thoughts and emotions invade both our subconscious and conscious existence?

In order to understand the purpose of dreams, it’s necessary to explore the different types of dreams: ordinary, recurring, lucid, telepathic, premonitory, daydreams and nightmares. Ordinary dreams are the unconscious mind’s reactions to something witnessed or experienced by the conscious mind. For example, if you planned a vacation during the day, you might dream about tropical islands that night. Recurring dreams are the unconscious mind’s way to try and teach a lesson that needs to be learned.

Lucid dreams occur when you are actually aware that you’re dreaming and you have the power to control your dreams. Telepathic dreams open the door to communication between loved ones who’ve transitioned and your unconscious mind. Premonitory dreams are premonitions but they can also allow the dreamer to travel into their future in a dream state. Nightmares are a response to fear and often stem from both childhood and past lives. Daydreams tend to occur when the body and mind are in a relaxed state, and are designed to distract the mind.

The interesting thing about all types of dreams is that it all involves the subconscious mind; which is where the logical, rational part of the brain is shut down and the creative part of the brain takes control. What is the purpose?

We are truly a soul in a body having a human experience; whose entire purpose is to learn. Your soul already has the knowledge of the universe within, and often wants to share this knowledge with the brain. The brain tends to reject this information while conscious and operating in its usual analytical state. In dreams, the soul can open to share knowledge, to communicate not only with the body in its resting state, but also with others who have transitioned on. Often times, this is the best way to learn and grow.

We all dream. It is the soul’s domain. Often, we do not remember our dreams. Why does that happen if the soul’s purpose is to learn in the dream state? Regardless of whether or not you consciously remember your dreams, your unconscious mind remembers; your soul remembers. Healing often happens while the body sleeps, especially when it’s unwell.
