DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - What’s in a dream? Much more than most people realize, according to Damian Nordmann and Leah Morris with the School of Metaphysics in Dallas.
“Interpreting your dreams forms a bond between the conscious and subconscious mind, so they’re both working together in harmony,” explained Morris, who teaches students how to take information from their dreams and apply it to their daily lives.
But what if you have trouble remembering the details of every dream? Morris says write it down as soon as you wake up. “You can train yourself to remember those dreams. That’s the fun part,” she said. Morris even suggests putting a journal by your bed to quickly jot things down, before you forget.
According to Nordmann and Morris, there are a few common themes that people tend to dream about. For example, being naked in public has a connection to being open and honest. “Depending on a person’s level of comfort with being open and honest with others is the degree in which they’re comfortable in the dream with being naked,” said Nordmann.
Another common dream involves being unprepared for work or school. Nordmann says that one is fairly easy to understand. “They’re all different variations of the same idea: the need to be prepared in life and to visualize and what steps need to be taken to be fulfilled in that way.”
But the most common dream people have, according to Nordmann, is having their teeth fall out. It could mean you’re on information overload. “When your teeth are falling out in a dream”, he explained, “your teeth are sort of the first line of assimilation of food but in the dream state it’s the first line of assimilating that knowledge or processing it.”
The School of Metaphysics is accepting new students for an upcoming class. For more information about the school click here to check out their website.
