I’ve always been fascinated with the interpretation of dreams. I do believe that a lot of what we dream is our subconscious trying to work through things. But not all dreams.
I dreamt once that I had sex with Arnold Schwarzenegger. After we finished, he got up to go to the bathroom and turns to me and says, “I’ll be back.”
I have never crushed on Arnold. I will admit that I love his movies though. So why did I have such a dream? Spicy food? Could be. It’s more likely that I just watched one of his movies.
A lot of psychologist poo poo the idea that media can influence dreams. I’m not sure I understand why that is. Yes, I feel a lot of dreams are the subconscious speaking to us. But I do feel what we watch and read can influence dreams as well.
Then there’s the really strange dreams that make absolutely no sense at all. What do the psychologists say about those? Spicy food?
How about the superstition of dreaming about falling? You know, if you land, you die. Not true. I’ve dreamt this a few times and hit the ground. Here I am!
I don’t have all the answers about the meaning of dreams. But I do find the topic fascinating!
