Dreams and Nightmares


Dreams have been a mystery to us since ADAM breathed life. All most all human beings including infants have experienced this mental activity that consists of thoughts, images and emotions occurring during sleep or even at the time of being half asleep. Infants experience this as nightmare during which time they suddenly awake and start crying with panic and their limbs kicking. Sometimes they get sweet dreams that are evident with their smiles even when their eyes are closed. As a matter of fact, every day every human experiences this strange phenomenon that is the exclusive gift to the human race. Most of the time we forget soon after the sleep is disturbed. But some times they are more realistic and even after your sleep is over it is difficult to believe everything that happened was only an illusion.

During bad dreams we are too happy to realize that it was only a dream. We may call such dreams that involve fear or horror, or the sensation of pain, falling, drowning or death as NIGHTMARES. During such an unpleasant emotional response we sweat a lot and getting any more sleep during that day becomes very difficult. It is also equally true that during pleasant dreams we are disappointed that it was only a false experience of reality. It could be getting admission into IIT, getting selected for the Indian cricket team, ggetting a chance to act with Aishwarya Rai, Lord Krishna giving darshan to you, your bald head has grown thick hair etc.

Some times our dreams get repeated again and again which makes us scared about going to bed if only they are unpleasant in nature and eagerly wait for dreams that improve your morale of success. Of late , researchers have been analyzing and interpreting the meaning of dreams of either type with the help of psychologists and a dictionary of dreams has already reached the market. Newspapers have opened columns to answer the implications of dreams experienced by the readers with the same importance of the horoscope column.

In Hindu mythology every type of dream is taken as a premonition of certain thing to happen and chances are more if it is in the early morning. Even globally, all races, cultures and religion have referred to this phenomenon with seriousness and taken as a clue from the ALMIGHTY to protect yourself accordingly.

There is also an equal school of thought which believes that this is nothing short of nonsense and can be conveniently ignored with a strong mind. Some scientists are of the view that dreams are more frequent when there is indigestion, ailing health, suffering from flu, over ambition, fear psychosis and so on. Some go to the extent of claiming that a healthy individual should have a sound sleep free from such disturbed mind that activates dreams.


Any way a few historical dreams that actually came to reality are quoted below for the interest of the readers.

1. A few days before his assassination American president ABRAHAM LINCOLN who was very attentive to his dreams dreamt of his own corpse laid out in a room of the White House.

2. MARTIN LUTHER KING also seems to have had a precognitive dream about his death a few months before his assassination.

3. A day before the TITANIC demise, a woman on infamous ship dreamt of the horrible event that was to occur the next day. She told her husband, who ridiculed at her worries and ignored her pleas. However the dream so affected her that she secretly prepared herself the night before and had all her children sleep in their warm clothes in order to be ready in a moments notice. During the night, when the ship struck the iceberg, she and her children managed to escape and be rescued. Her husband, sadly, went down with the ship.

Here is a very interesting true happening that happened 2 to 3 decades back with one of my close friends.

He was a chain smoker to the extent of a minimum of 2 packets a day and my repeated advice and warnings were futile. Then one night he had an exceptionally vivid and realistic dream in which he had inoperable cancer of the lung. He experienced the incredible anguish of knowing his life was soon to end that he would never see his children grow up. But to his great relief, surprise and joy that was all in the dream and he felt as if he was reborn. Needless to say that experience was sufficient to induce the immediate cessation of cigarette habit.

What all we have seen above are actually night dreams. There is another interesting topic under day dreams and great dreamers. They are actually dreaming for the great future of them, country they belong or for some social cause. They are actually fully awake while contemplating to achieve great heights during the course of years or even decades.

Who else could be a better dreamer than our ex-president Dr.A.P.J.ABDUL KALAM? Here are a few lines written by that unique man from one of his poems. “DREAMS FLOAT ON AN IMPATIENT WIND, A WIND THAT WANTS TO CREATE A NEW ORDER. AN ORDER OF STRENGTH AND THUNDERING OF FIRE”. KALAM’S advice to the youngsters of the Nation is to “DREAM, DREAM and DREAM.

You have to dream before your dreams come true. Great DREAMS of great DREAMERS are always transcended. “All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect and then they work every day towards their distant vision, that goal or purpose—BRIAN TRACY.

But such dreamers were invariably having most of the qualities referred below in abundance to succeed what they desired. 1. Confidence 2. Courage 3. Commitment 4. Creativity 5. Purpose 6. Passion 7. Persistance 8. Resilence 9. Risk 10. Responsibility

All of you can start DREAMING from this very movement in good earnest for your long cherished ambitions for a positive cause!
