Lots of folks at this site have started discussions about dreams. Vivid dreams. Crazy dreams. Lucid dreams. Some say they hardly dream any more. Some say certain foods (like pickles) cause them to have certain dreams. Dreams are sometimes funny, sometimes frightening, always fascinating.

My mom was very superstitious, didn't trust folks who practiced voodoo, and got very worried when certain things happened. If a bird somehow got through a window and was flying around in a house ... ??? ... forgot what she said that meant but it wasn't good. Also, if she dreamed of fish, somebody was pregnant. Yeah right. Grew up in low income housing, before the birth control pill. Somebody was always pregnant! For me the dream process is a beautiful thing and it's a way of relaxing your mind, clearing your thoughts, sorting things out, helping you solve problems, enhancing your creativity, etc. Or maybe that's just how my brain works. Anyway … sharing this interesting article that purports to explain the connection between your dreams and your mental health. Good to know.

Yes check for sure. I suffer nightmares beyond belief regarding old traumas but luckily I am able to process this and understand where it is coming from.

I was only able to read the first page of the article as my campground WiFi did not seem inclined to let me go to the other pages. What I did read posed some interesting interpretations of the dream state.
