Dreams are dreams for a reason. Yes, sometimes we have super fantastic dreams and almost like a science-fiction movie, which are easier to separate from reality. However, sometimes we have such realistic dreams that it would be hard to understand whether it was a real memory that happened or it was just a dream. Haven’t you ever had a dream so real that it made you smile in your sleep but you woke up and it took you some minutes to comprehend that it was not real and your reality is completely different from what made you smile?
Can you remember your dreams?
Sometimes, when we dream, we wake up in the middle of it. When this happens, the dream is fresh in our minds and it is easier to remember the details. But the details fade away in time, too. In most cases, we wake up and think we remember our dream clearly because of the effect it left on us, but after some minutes pass, if we try to tell the dream to someone else, we can see that we do not remember the dream by detail. If it was a nightmare, we sense the fear and disturbance it left on us but we do not necessarily remember every detail of it. And maybe this is for the best. Think about it, you had the worst nightmare ever and you wake up with relief but then you realize every piece of that nightmare is vivid in your head, wouldn’t you go crazy? Sometimes it is better to forget.
Is it normal to forget dreams?
Yes. It is pretty normal to forget the dreams you had last night. Our brains can block out the dream or the details related to it to be in a better and more realistic position mentally. Some people remember their dreams and some forget dreams the moment they wake up. They even need some time to remember that they had a dream during the day.
So, do our dreams come true when we remember them?
You may be asking, Do dreams come true if you remember them? There is no proof that a dream can come true just because the dreamer remembers it vividly. What you can do is, if it is a good dream with a positive outcome that you want to become a reality, you can take that dream as a motivation and an inspiration to act. For instance, if you are an artist but are shy about your work and had a dream that you won a prize with your painting, you naturally want that dream to come true. So, take this dream as a sign to get out of your shell and apply to some contests. This way, you can make your dream come true.
