Why we Dream?
Our unconscious mind communicates our dreams in symbols. Dreams are the reflection of your past life, waking life, mirroring your fears, anxieties, desires, hopes, obstacles, new possibilities, and aspirations for the future. They are the hints of your future life. Dreams help us learn how to recognize and respond to threatening circumstances. Understand the personal meaning of your dreams and the ways to control that. Negative dreams occur if you are attached to the negative energies. Through proper exercises you can come out of that.
How Dreams are Generated?
According to our Ray 72000 Nadi System, dreams are originate in the low-level energy channels (Soma Nadis) in the brain and interpreted and contextualized by higher-order energy channels (Saraswati Nadis) in the brain areas. Dreams are generated by two way communications between the two groups of Nadis the Soma Nadis and the Saraswati Nadis.
Dreams contain vivid representations of objects, places, people, emotions, actions, sounds and voices. All these seed symbols are generated by the Puritat nadis in the heart.
When you are asleep, your mind become active and the Soma Nadis, the moon light energy channels become active, and the subconscious mind creates stories and images that can be either vivid or fleeting; nonsensical or seemingly prophetic; terrifying or absolutely mundane.
Dreams and the 72000 Nadis
There are different types of common dreams, including normal dreaming, nightmares, anxiety dreams, and false awakenings. There are 14 principal nadis in the human body. They are the Ida, Pingla, Sushumna, Gandhari, Hastijivha, Kuhu, Saraswati, Pusha, Shankhini, Payaswini, Varuni, Alambusha, Vishwodara, and Yashaswini Nadi. Vajra nadi is inside the Sushumn nadi and famous for manifestation.
The soma nadis, which are also known as Chandrima nadis are responsible for dreams. The word Soma or Chandrima means moon light energy channels. These moon light nadis has four main divisions: Soma nadi, Rohini nadi, Revati nadi and the Indu nadi. When these nadis are overactive or blocked, the negative dreams or the bad dreams, trauma, and nightmares arises. In Ray Taranga Yoga System, there are specific techniques to handle these situations.
The Indu nadis and the Saraswati nadis are responsible for the prophetic dreams. The Payaswini nadis and the Indu nadis are responsible for the lucid dreaming.
Dreams and the Chakras
The Indu chakra is associated with dreams. There are 114 chakras, the Nirvana chakra signifies the process of enlightenment. The Jiva chakra always creates a veil of ignorance. The Jiva chakra is associated with the negative dreams and the Nirvana chakra and the Sanjivani chakra are associated with the positive dreams. Therefore, if somebody suffers from bad dreams, means the Jiva chakra and the Indu chakra is out of balance. Chakra meditations brings emotional or spiritual balance and alignments, which releases the trapped emotions, and removes the negative dreams.
Dreams and the Sleep Cycles
When you’re awake, your thoughts have a certain logic to them. When you sleep, your brain is still active, but your thoughts or dreams often make little or no sense. This may be because the emotional centers of the brain trigger dreams, rather than the logical regions.
There are two main stages of sleep: rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and non-REM sleep. The Non-REM sleep is further divided into three different stages. Every stage is linked to a specific neuronal activity and brain wave structure. Dreams are frequent and strong during the REM sleep stage.
During sleep in the night, humans cycle through all stages of non-REM and REM sleep several times. Generally, the REM sleep periods are longer towards morning. The REM sleep is considered crucial for memory and emotions. Stage three is often called deep sleep or slow-wave sleep.
Dreams and the Sleep Stages
Our sleep cycles are controlled by the circadian rhythm, also known as the internal body clock. Our circadian rhythm that helps us fall asleep at night and stay awake during the day is informed by exposure to light, hence why we sleep when it’s dark, and is related to the production of the hormone melatonin. In general, older people sleep less, have more fragmented sleep, and spend less time in stage 3 (deep sleep), and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, than younger people.
