Intro: The Origin of Dreams

“dream interpretation becomes very difficult due to the fact that the left hemisphere is forced to interpret what the right brain has created using a language the left brain does not understand.” – The Dream State

“While your whole brain works together, there are certain things that the right side and left side specialize in. The left side is the timekeeper, is concerned with words, reading, talking, math, logic and all that jazz. The right side is visual, spatial, emotional.

I was reading an article that explained how dreaming is unilateral, or, the majority of only one side of the brain is functioning at a certain time while asleep. The reason it’s so hard to write down dreams is because REM sleep is driven by the right side of your brain. Since the right side doesn’t care about time, it’s often difficult to figure out the sequence of events, or about how long it took for something to happen. 

It’s why you can’t read anything in a dream… that’s the left side’s job! Telling time also gets funked up because of this. The lack of the logic part of your brain makes you believe that stupid stuff in your dream is completely natural.
“Therefore, due to the lateralized remembrance of dreams, the left hemisphere of the brain must access the memories of the right brain when a person is asked to describe a dream or even to remember it. To access the memory banks of the right hemisphere, the left hemisphere must use the corpus callosum or anterior commissure. The left hemisphere of the brain is involved primarily in the encoding and recall of verbal, temporal sequential, and language related memories. As a result, dream interpretation becomes very difficult due to the fact that the left hemisphere is forced to interpret what the right brain has created using a language the left brain does not understand”

I think that’s so cool! I guess when you go lucid, you make the left side of your brain wake up to a certain degree.” – link

REFERENCE

Interesting isn’t it? 

I believe that when we dream, either good or bad, both are positive signs that our body, Spirit and soul is finally leaning on the “philosophical” or abstract side of our brains for answers vs. the concrete intellectual answers that will never fill this void in our heart. 

I have faith that this revelation will plant a seed of love in your heart and til my next note on this topic, I pray that you all will stay reminded of God’s unconditional love, even in your darkest hour. 

In the name of Jesus Christ, who defines what is abstract and what is unpredictable as the wind, 

Amen. 

Brotherly love,
