Philosophy of Nightmares The best way to understand why we have nightmares is to think of them as an early warning system or an alarm that alerts us that something is wrong in our lives and is hurting us We need to focus our attention on the dream and fix the problems so we can overcome them and clear our mind Being human we do not always pay attention to the subtle hints or little nudges that tell us that we need to change something We keep procrastinating instead of working out the problems or we are so preoccupied with other matters that we miss the big issues and thats when nightmares occur to help alert us Some nightmares are like practice sessions that test our abilities and outlook on a given issue to prepare us for going through a painful lesson in life such as the break-up of a relationship loss of a loved one fears of death loss of health any number of situations At first the nightmares on these issues are a shock but as we understand the issues that are being brought to our attention and change our perception the nightmares lessen in their severity and we achieve a sense of inner peace or calm Nightmares are like a last ditch effort to scream for your attention Theres nothing like a heart-pounding terrifying nightmare to get our attention and say Hey Whats going on here They are actually sometimes helpful the same way that pain alerts us that something is wrong with our bodies nightmares are a helpful warning to alert us that our emotional and mental state has a glitch that needs to be fixed because its somehow making our lives harder and more painful Dreams prepare you for current and future events in your actual life They also point out to you the areas in your life that need to be healed or worked upon
