  • Everyone can dream: There is not even one person who doesn’t dream, excluding those who have mental disorders.
  • Familiarity: Sometimes, you might not remember the person in your dream. However, it’s impossible to keep track of thousands of faces that you come across every day. But you dream of only those people whom you might have encountered in life.
  •  Colourful or colourless: Some dream in colours and some in black and white. If a person has grown up watching black and white television, he/she is more likely to dream in black and white than coloured. In a recent survey, only 12% of sighted people, imagined in black and white or colourless.

  5. Periodic table Dimitri Mendeleev

That’s nice, dream and invent!

  • Premonition dreams: There are a few astounding cases where people actually dreamt of things which happened to them in future, precisely in the same ways they imagined about. All those got a glimpse of their future, or it’s just coincidence. This is some seriously amazing and weird phenomena. Some of the most famous unpleasant dreams include:

  • REM sleep disorder: During REM (rapid-eye-movement) stage, your body is usually paralysed. However, people act out their dreams (in rare cases). These have resulted in broken arms, legs, furniture, and also a house burnt down. Shocking!
  • Sleepwalking: Sleepwalking is a potentially dangerous sleep disorder. It is an extreme form of REM sleep disorder in which people walk out of their bed to go on real adventures at night.
  • Dream drug: Some people never want to wake up from their dreams. For this, they take an illegal and extremely potent hallucinogenic drug called Dimethyltryptamine.
  • Increased brain activity: Sleeping is not at all associated with peace, but our mind is more active during sleep than during the day.
  • Dreams Speak Through Our Subconscious: You might have felt similar dreams reoccurring repeatedly. The reason may be an undone task or feeling in the mind that needs to accomplished in reality. These dream acts are a reminder for the job to be done.

Just stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learning. Work hard, and never give up in up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These aren’t clichés but real tools you need no matter what you do in life to stay focused on your path. So, keep dreaming!

Happy dreaming!
