Nightmares and How They Heal
Feb 22   2017

Although science reports on Nightmares as being more frequent in children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old, and although other scientific expertise claims nightmares to be associated with PTSD the truth is Nightmares Heal.

This is how it works. All dreams inspire the same chemical and hormonal response in our brains and bodies as if the events being imaged took place in the day realm. For example, if you dream of being on vacation, in a sunny place with the sound of the ocean nearby, your brain during that image produces the same calming, relaxing hormones as if you truly experienced the warm sand and the ocean spray.

Nightmares also produce the same chemicals and hormones as if you had the daytime experience. To have a nightmare of being chased and having nowhere to escape, your breath quickens, pulse increases and stress hormones like cortisol flow through your body.

How is that healing? When the stress is over, your body is actually stronger in some ways. Cortisol leaves in its wake regulated blood pressure and a heightened immune system. Therefore when your days have been stressful and especially when you have not had enough sleep, nightmares help establish a stronger baseline of health. 

Next time you have a nightmare watch your mood for the next 24 hours. You'll discover you feel better, more relaxed and more at ease in your world. That's the healing power of Nightmares. 

Psychotherapy: Dream Interpretation and other Therapies

    What do Dreams and repeat patterns, or fractals, have in common? Everything! Dreams reveal patterns: dreams also arrive in patterns, repeating until we unravel their message of solace, comfort and sometimes a good kick when we most need it! You dream nightly and have the ability to remember dreams, because our very genes code us to be able to recall what happens when we sleep.

     Dreams carve a pathway through the confusion, turmoil, terrors and joy of daily living.

     Dreams saved my life. As a Psychotherapist specializing in Dream Recall and Dream Reading, over the past decades I have seen Dreams offer the truth about health, finances, relationships, real estate and more.

     Paying attention to and learning to remember Dreams is much easier than you may believe. On this Page you’ll learn more about how to recall your Dreams until it becomes second nature.

     You’ll also learn more about the valuable dialogue between your daily conscious self and the Dreamer who provides you with such treasures of information, balance, insight, health and much more.
