One savvy 5 year old said that dreams were “television we see in our sleep” – and she’s not far wrong! Dreams are depictions of a particular moment or issue in our lives which need our attention; they come from the part of us that knows all about us….but of which we know little about.
Dreams come from the deepest part of ourselves – the unconscious mind, which is likened to a vast ocean on which the conscious mind floats like a cork.
Dreams are mental experiences that occur while we are asleep. We know of the existence of dreams because most of us report having mental experiences such as thoughts, images, and emotions while asleep—and we can see consistent areas of the brain become activated during dream-sleep.
