Since around the end of November, start of December, i've been having frequent dream flashbacks everyday. They occur spontaneously troughout the day as i'm sitting on my computer, eating, showering, talking to people. Just normal everyday things. The dreams come in form of thoughts, and it varies if they last long, short, are old or recent dreams. I have no mental illnesses, and i'm not dedicated or really interested in dream related subjects. Does anyone know why i may be having this, and has it happened to you?
Don't know it matters, but i've experienced some synchronicity before and weird predictions on small things before. Not saying this has to be paranormal, but just mentioning it since i can't remember any mental stuff being related to it.
Dreams are your subconscious reflections of your daily life. It's a way for you to work out life situations without the hindrance of your conscious self attempting to take control.
It's not necessary to remember dreams because they are meant for your subconscious self not your conscious self. When dreams do come to you in flashbacks during your daily life, it means that those moments are what your dreams are reflecting on.
For example, if you have a dream of being chased, the ruling emotion there is a type of fear. Then in your waking life, a situation may happen where that same brand of fear occurs, and a flashback of that dream may come to you in that moment to relate to you.
In a way, your dreams are kind of like rehearsals for a play. In this case, the play is your waking life. So you may dream about life situations subconsciously in order to prepare yourself to deal with them consciously. Then, as those situations in real life start to happen, your subconscious will know what to do and will in a sense help you work things out. In those moments, memories of your dream may begin to come back to you as a way of reminding you what you have already learned in that dream to be applied in real life.
If you want to understand your dreams better, it is best to remember what emotions you feel in those dreams and try to pinpoint where those emotions appear in your waking life. Then you can begin to connect the dots in a more conscious way.
Or, if you want, you can forget about doing anything. Your subconscious will automatically work out your dreams and it will affect your behavior without much conscious effort on your part.
