Dreams are the realm of our subconscious, where hidden ideas, stories and imagery are buried deep within our minds. When we dream, we sometimes experience a variety of these subconscious ideas. We open a window into our subconscious and let it make up a story.

You're the lucid dreamer! Lucid dreams occur when you realize you are dreaming. "Wait a second. This is only a dream!" Most dreamers wake themselves up once they realize that they are dreaming. But you've probably experimented with staying asleep while being aware of the fact that you're sleeping! <br><br>You may have even cultivated the skill to remain in the lucid state of dreaming for long periods of time and become an active participant in your dreams! Lucid dreamers are spiritual and highly intuitive.
You're the epic dreamer. Epic dreams are so huge, so compelling, and so vivid that you cannot ignore them! It's literally like embarking on an adventure every time you fall asleep! The details of such dreams remain with you forever. <br><br> These dreams possess much beauty and contain many archetypal symbols. When you wake up from such a dream, you feel that you have discovered something profound or amazing about yourself or about the world. It feels like a life-changing experience! Epic dreamers are adventurous souls with deep connections to their subconscious.
You're a healing dreamer. Healing dreams serve as messages for the dreamer in regards to their mental and physical health. The Ancient Greeks called these dreams "prodromic". Many dream experts believe that dreams can help in avoiding potential problems and healing when you're ill or when you're grieving. <br><br> This is especially true for you. Your body is able to communicate to your mind through dreams. These dreams can "tell" you that something is not quite right with your body even before any physical symptoms show up. If you can understand the language of your dreams, they will serve as an invaluable early warning system! They can inform, advise and heal you!
You're a disturbed dreamer. You're a deep soul with great potential but also a lot of pain and trauma. This pain often expresses itself in nightmares. A nightmare is a disturbing dream that causes you to wake up feeling anxious and frightened. <br><br>Nightmares may be a response to real life trauma and situations or imagined fears. Research shows that most people who have regular nightmares have a family history of psychiatric problems, are involved in a rocky relationship or have had bad drug experiences. Nightmares, however, can also be a sign of deep artistic and creative potential. Channel your nightmares into creative endeavors in your waking life.
