Are Dreams and the Waking Mind Related?

Updated: Sep 1, 2023

Yesterday I was intrigued by the dream I'd had the previous night. I went to bed with that enthusiasm, asking myself what that reflection on dreaming within the dream was. Last night I was not disappointed either. I had a somewhat disturbing dream where heartworms were coming out of my right forearm. Disturbed but not surprised. Not surprised because I knew those things coming out of my arm represented my mind.

This funny dude is not that disturbing, bless Canva's Text to Image for sanitising my dream. The dream was.

I was not able to get rid of it all within the dream or even after waking up and lying in bed. In fact, I had lots of negative thoughts while I was getting breakfast and making a potato salad (broadly following this recipe here), which slowed me down a lot. However, I was able to get rid of it when I attended a group activity and meditation today. I still feel uncomfortable, but I figure I'd just try sleeping on it again. The negative thoughts are gone. Let's see what tonight brings! 😁😅

How cool would it be to have a dream like a Canva Text to Image one
