Different people believe different things about dreams. Some take the less fantastical view and say dreams are a compilation of events that happened the day before. Others believe that dreams can help guide you spiritually. I say why can’t it be both?
A few nights ago I found the answer to a plot problem I’ve been struggling with for my work in progress, The Nocturnals. When I woke up I thought, oh that makes everything make so much sense! I had a problem in the back of my mind and my subconscious (my muse) figured out the problem and threw it at me in a really creepy dream.
Whatever you choose to believe, the next time you have a problem you can’t figure out, push it to the back of your mind and see what answers you find in your sleep.
