Exploring the world of dream interpretation…

What does it mean if I don’t dream?

January 2nd, 2008 | Posted by Ruthanna in General

Some say they don’t dream; others say they can’t remember their dreams. What does this mean? David Kahn, PhD at Harvard University Medical School answers:

“You almost certainly do dream, but you don’t remember that you do. The part of the brain that remembers what we’ve just said or done is essentially off-line when we sleep, so the vast majority of dreams are forgotten.

“If you keep a pad or a tape recorder by your bed and jot down your dreams before they disappear, you are more likely to remember them.

“There’s also evidence that we can will ourselves to retain more dreams. Before you go to sleep and after you wake up, tell yourself you want to remember.

“The only people who might not dream are those with stroke damage or who have lesions on specific parts of the brain. Even in these extreme cases, it isn’t clear whether these people don’t dream or whether they are just incapable of remembering dreams.”

And, there you have it. We surely do dream! We just don’t always remember them. But you can change that with a little will power. Try prayer… and ask God to help you remember. He will, because He wants to speak to you in your dreams. And, if He wants to speak to you about something in your life; He will surely help you receive and remember the dream. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it! Check out my book here. It’s only $9.95 and it will help you understand how to interpret your own dreams. God bless. Love, Ruthanna

    Hey I don’t dream…. I am 13 years old and i dont dream. I haven’t had a dream since i was in kindergarten. I am able to control what happens in my dreams…. Is that normal? I have not had a stroke or any brain lesions… I think. I just want to know why I don’t dream anymore. I maybe get a dream once a month and they are always nightmares.

    If you are a healthy 13 year old, you ARE dreaming… you just don’t remember them. And, believe me, you are blessed if you’re not having “wild” dreams like your friends. To be able to sleep peacefully at night is a blessing. Thank God for that but also let Him know that you are open to hear HIS VOICE in your dreams… if there is ever anything really important He wants to share with you. God loves you and will welcome that invitation.
