20 Amazing Facts About Dreams You May Not Know

Dreams are amazing! There are so many different things we dream about every night but by the time we wake up, we usually either only remember a little bit of the dream or we forget it entirely. Dreams are symbolic and can even be trying to tell you something about your life. They are a phenomenon we would all like to understand more about one day. Here are 20 amazing facts about dreams that you might not know.

You Can’t Read While Dreaming

Not only can you not read while dreaming but you can’t tell the time either. So, if you want to know if you are dreaming, try to read something. If you can’t read anything, then you know you are dreaming. Also, every time you look at a clock in your dream, you will see a different time and the hands on the clock won’t be moving. This is according to lucid dreamers.

Lucid Dreaming Is Real

Many people who have practiced lucid dreaming have reported that not only can they take control of their dreams but they can even walk through walls, fly, and even go back in time or into different dimensions.

There Have Been Inventions Inspired By Dreams

Many of the things we use today were made because of the inventor dreamt them up. Some include Google, the periodic table, and even the sewing machine. What these inventors did was wrote their dreams down as soon as they woke up and then worked on them — these inventions are what they dreamed of. Many artists and writers do this too. They dream of an idea for a book or a painting and then wake up, write down their dream, and then work it into their creative venture. Wow!

You Can Dream The Future

Some people have reported that they dream about something and it happens to them later on in life. Some really important people have dreamed of their future. For example, Abraham Lincoln dreamed that he was going to get assassinated and he did, many of the surviving victims of the 9/11 tragedy dreamed about it happening, Mark Twain actually dreamed about the demise of his brother, and some people dreamed about the Titanic tragedy before it happened. If these people would have known these dreams were trying to warn them of something that was about to happen, they could have prevented it. Pay attention to your dreams.
